Check in friendly and swift aided by a glass of cava!. We arrived late evening and a cold buffet was available which was welcome. At welcome meeting the following morning the managers and heads of departments were introduced and said a few words including the hotels concept of excellence. All staff throughout hotel were very friendly and we could not fault the service -The room hairdryer had a broken hose and reported this on way down to breakfast . On returning to room afterwards we found the maintenance man was just finishing installing a brand new one – I don’t think you can get better service than that.
Special mention of Rui who seemed to be on duty 24/7 with daytime activities and organising the evening entertainment. Some of the latter was pretty mediocre, but Rui gave many of us aching jaws laughing during the silly games he organised as a warm up.
Our room on first floor was spacious and clean and had good sized bathroom. Very noisy especially sounds from next door room. I think this probably down to being adjoining room doors on first floor so higher floors may not have this problem.
The food was on the whole extremely good with an excellent choice of dishes and one of the best breakfast spreads I have come across in European hotels. It would be churlish for anyone to say couldn’t find anything to their liking. Christmas night buffet was even better certainly pulled out all the stops and made even more agreeable with copious supplies of wine and beer on the house.
Many staff members have been here many years and also we met many people who have been returning for years as well and often more than once a year so a lot of conviviality and a family type atmosphere.
