The hotel is located in a pretty fishing village. The hotel style is I would say old Portugese charm which we liked, however if you like modern hotels you would probably not like it and think it was in need of updating. Right on the beach and close to lots of excellent restaurants, with of course fresh seafood. Very clean and very friendly helpful staff. If you are after a quiet relaxing holiday this is a good place to go.
We were full board as it was only a little extra over half board. In the evenings it is buffet, which is fine but you might get bored if you were eating there every night for a week or so. As we went in July before school holidays it was not hugely busy so there was no buffet at lunch time so we were able to eat from the A la carte menu, which was first class.
There is a little amusement park opposite hotel which our son loved, he went on the bumper cars every day. If you have a room facing this and go to bed early and are a light sleeper this might bother you with the noise, but did not bother us.
Only mild critisim if being picky were the temperature of the pools (freezing!) and the fact that it was not made clear what was included in the full board option, when asked if we could have lunch at the pool bar they said no it was not included but it actually was.
