i stayed at the hotel with my wife for a week at the end of September 12, and found the hotel to be exactly as you would expect from a Rui hotel. It seems to cater, at least whilst we were there, for the more mature holidaymakers, we are in our early 50's and we think we brought the average age of the guests down. There were a few younger holidaymakers staying there, but not many.
The hotel is on a half board basis, and the food was very good with a lot of choice, although after a week I was glad not to have to go again into the same dining hall twice a day, and potentially if I stayed in the area again I might consider an hotel on a B&B basis as there were lots of restaurants close by.
There is a nice bar at the hotel, and entertainment was laid on each night, usually a singer, who generally weren't that good. I also thought the music they played wasn't inspired, the hotel seems to think we must be 80 plus as they tended to play easy listening music all the time, when in fact many of us in our 50's or 60's were teenagers when the Beatles and the Stones, even Led Zep were in their prime. I personally would have liked some disco music.
The Perto Marina is just across the square from the hotel, and the nearest beach 100 yards away. There is an uninspiring pool on site, which we didn't use as the beach was much better.
