Having not been to portugal before but a regular to MARBELLA I was interested to see the differance.
On arrival at the Hotel we were immediately impressed with the decor and in particular the friendly effecient manner in which we were checked in. We were alowed to view a few differant type of room , settling in the end for a beautiful suite.
The hotel staff throughout our stay were very effecient and polite.
For a 5 star hotel there were however two areas that did let the hotel down.
Firstly contrary to previous reports i had read on triadvisor , the breakfast is certainly not 5 star hotel standard. Limited freshly made omelettes , otherwise all "buffet" food was lukewarm at best every day.
Also although the hotel had a great choice of pools to use , the service around the pool , drinks and food was non exsistant , guests having to go to the bar themselves, again not what I expect from a 5 star hotel.
The marina , a 5 min walk , is very chavvy nowhere near as dressy as Banus , although there are a number of decent restaurants, shame nothing else to do after dinner as the few shops are most disappointing.
Having become a little bored with the Marina we ate in the Hotel at the Floating Restaurant which was very good. Excellent service and food , a little pricey but expected in a hotel a la carte restaurant.
