We arrived at about 11 o'clock in the evening and were driven down to our room in the villa. We were disapointed with the size of the room and the fact there were no tea making facilities or fridge. Having travelled in Europe quite a bit, we came prepared with a travel kettle, teabags etc, but no milk. We went back up to the bar to have a drink and see if we could get some milk and the barman, Mario, couldn't be more friendly and helpful,(Bar shuts at midnight), and he remained very cheerful and plesant through out our stay.
The breakfast the next morning (we were half board) was quite acceptable,but the "hot " food was tepid rather than hot, but there was a reasonable choice.
The evening meal was perfecly adequate but we can understand it not being to everybody's taste.
All the restaurant staff were very nice, helpful and polite, with one exception, jessica, who was very rude and unpleasant. It got to the stage where I didn't want to go to the restaurant in case she was there. She was very rude to my Wife and another female guest during our stay.
The cleaning staff were pleasant enough bearing in mind they don't speak much, if any, English.
All in all it wasn't a bad place to stay, but a week is enough. Once you have been to the marina and Quarteira there isn't much to do and the evening "entertainment" could do with a serious revamp.
Would we go back? Not while jessica is employed there...
