We stayed for a week and had the best time! Definitely want to go back!
The staff were fantastic - headed up by Gustava, the General Manager, who managed to source some special Portuguese custard tarts for us (that we were trying to find).
The hotel was clean, beautifully presented and very quiet. The hotel had a lovely pool but as the weather was so good we spend most mornings on the beach (a short 10 min walk away). The hotel has lots of nice areas to relax in - both inside and out. The room was spotless - great living area, large bedroom, walk in shower and balcony. Excellent to have a fridge - but we only used the kitchen for boiling water for tea. The food in the restaurant was great too - highlights were the pork, pizzas, fresh bread and chocolate ganache (with sea salt from Marim)... as did the amazing selection of gins!
2 comments: the hotel wasn't that easy to find once you come off the main road, particularly at night. We drove straight past it as there were (at the time) no signs outside the building. We were very lucky with the weather - if the wind picks up then it gets very blustery!
Overall an unforgettable holiday. Perfect for relaxing. In May the beach was quiet. It was just at the beginning of the season. A car is useful if you want to visit the nearby town of Tavira which has a small castle in the centre (worth a visit) and good shops (where we bought a beach umbrella!)
