First... the area is not very charming, and there are not many decent restaurants within walking distance, yet I would highly recommend a vist to this amazing place. My review is based on a 15 days stay in July.
The architecture and interior design, down to every single detail, is beautiful and fun. We stayed in a room with a balcony and ocean view in the new building. The room is serviced twice a day, although the timing of these were sometimes a bit strange and a strangely persistant staff wanting to do their job despite us being in the room getting ready.
The pool area is also wonderful, with plenty of sunbeds and service from the bar. We like the beach, so we didn't spend much time here.
Breakfasts were delicious, and so was dinner in the restaurant (we ate there 6 nights). The waiter staff were slightly inattentive, but this improved during our stay. The reception staff gave great restaurant recommendations, most of which were reached by taxi (between 15 and 45 minutes). For a great experience I would highly recommend the restaurant named Vila Lisa.
Overall, despite the fact that the area surrounding the hotel (apart from the beach) being one of the least charming places I have ever been to, I will definately go here again for a relaxing beach holiday, as both the beach and the hotel were amazing!
