In winter the bulk of its guests seem to be elderly Brits who stay for months on end, which does give it the air of a retirement home, albeit one thats residents are a bit self important. Its a nice hotel, the staff are fine, but don't really go out of their way to make your stay memorable, its a pleasant hotel, nice beach location, (a car is a definite requirement unless you're elderly and looking at knitting a cardigan in the bar during your stay). The food is passable, nothing special, in fact I was astounded to read other website reviews saying it was excellent, as it certainly wasn't.
Top Tip: Definitely rent a car and visit the local area, or venture over to Spain via the bridge near Castro Marim (which does not incur motorway tolls as long as you travel there via the non motorway N-road). Try and avoid the motorway as the toll system is not simple, even the locals don't really understand it, as it changed yet again in Dec 2011.
