It was our first sea side visit to Portugal and as Hhonors Diamond member the choice of the hotel was obvious. We got a planned upgrade to 2 bedroom apartment with a pool view. The facility is spotless, new and well maintained. But the main asset is staff, all of them were both friendly and flexible to find solutions for our family with 2 small kids.
Easter was a great time, as hotel was not full and we enjoyed sunny weather and great surroundings (I am not a golfer, by the way). SPA zone is excellent, top notch, albeit would be too small for high season (unless prices keep folks away)...
Just a few minor improvement comments: indoor pool is in reality covered outdoor one, so could be too cold for kids in off season. Shuttle bus schedule is fixed, too seldom departures, so do get a car.
Food for buffet dinner is quite good, choice is not bad either. Kids playground deserves 5 stars, especially when only a few people are around.
Can recommend this hotel, as well as shall return again shall we decide to come to Portugal.More
