This is my first complaint about a hotel, as we have never needed to complain before.
We have holidays all over the world and never encountered this many problems before.
The hotel looked run down our apartments bedroom and bathroom was infested with ants (unbelievable) hotel staff were unhelpful about this situation; also the bed linen did not feel clean and fresh.
Went down to the restaurant to have some breakfast in the morning (7 Euros a head for some bread, cheese, ham, juice) there we meet the waitress/owner from hell, we said good morning and got a blank stare back, we confirmed that there was 9 for breakfast and then all hell broke loose she was like a bull in a china shop throwing chairs as she could not get her trolley between the tables we were told by her that she couldn’t speak English however when we decided that we could not take this abusive manor and where about to leave then all of a sudden she now speaks English (amazing ) we have never been treated so badly like this before .
The room was clean but it was not fresh we tried to cancel after I night (but the dreaded cancelation policy?) we stayed in the hotel Termas da Curia (near Anadia) and this was top notch also we moved to Cascais again top notch.(note to all i do not like complaining about things it is not in me but this has made me so mad as it spoilt my nieces birthday so much.
The hotel did arrange a bottle of champagne for my nieces birthday which was nice & good but the damage was already done.
P.S WE WILL NEVER BE BACK
