            Close to the beach.

            The breakfast included with the reservation looked so unappetizing that we went out for breakfast each morning. They could have at least served some fresh fruit, opposed to canned peaches and pears!

            The hotel is extremely expensive for its quality. Definitely not a 4 star hotel, in my opinion it would maximum be 2 star hotel. Our room was the one with sea view and though we could see the sea ... you could also see the rooves of the buildings in front and their air conditioning systems... Be really careful when booking ... As said it does not resemble (not even close) a 4 star hotel. The parking in high season is very crowded ... You would need to leave your car on a lot across the road where it is really unsafe.

            We especially liked the cleanliness of our rooms and the hotel in general. The view of our rooms was simply spectacular. The whole outside environment was very well kept even though we´re already in Winter. The air conditioning worked 100%. At breakfast we had plenty to choose from and everything was fresh. Being close to the holiday season, the hotel was beautifully decorated and very welcoming.

            The television reception was terrible and although there were many channels there were few that you could see properly. One of the afternoons we decided to go down the spa to sit in the jacuzzi. According to the staff, the jacuzzi is always on but apparently it was our bad luck to have found it off. The maintenance staff was quick to appear and switch it on for us but although we were there for an hour, the water simply didn´t heat up quick enough. The space between the spa and the locker rooms is extremely cold! So unless you get dressed in the pool area or take a robe with you, you´ll have to make a quick run to the lockers which are also lacking in heating - a big disadvantage in winter.

            An amazing view and location!!! I was all set to score it 5 out of 5, the view is priceless from the pool and the cliff top location is truly idyllic. The small stroll into a lovely village is wonderful.

            The only cause to down score the hotel is the restaurant who's decor needs a huge revamp - so absolutely now probs if you plan to dine out even though the food was good quality. Heads up - most of the good items must be ordered a day in advance (e.g. Chateaubriand & crepe suzette). Only other drawback was the single beds instead of double - unfortunately ours had argued before we arrived and were desperate to escape each other. However, v small points and nothing to stop us staying again - we booked a longer trip there as soon as we returned home can't wait!!!

            It was clean and the service was adequate, if not outstanding. It felt safe. The cleanliness was probably the best aspect

            Charging guests 5€ for 1hr Wifi connection is extortionate. A 4 star hotel normally offers this service for free. This hotel has the potential to be a 4 star, but it currently offers a 2 star service. The hotel is in an isolated place, so it shouldn't isolate its guests further by forcing them to stay offline. The poolside bar was nice, but the bar staff were nonentities. I had a pina colada and it tasted horrible (stale juice). The bar staff admitted that "the juice was not the best one" (sic) but claimed "that they couldn't do anything about it". Really? They should have offered what is customary in these cases, eg. 1) a different drink instead, or 2. a refund. In both cases, an apology was on order. Counter staff correct but not really friendly or keen. Rooms should have a chair (not difficult to do) in order to be able to write or use pc on the table, which looks rather like a boudoir. There is no surface on which to do a bit of work or organizing things, and it’s a bit unnerving. The tv is small and poorly placed. The hotel makes no sense to a businessman on holidays. It has the feel of a home for the elderly or a lodging for families with small kids (though the former was more the case). Breakfast is boring, to cut a long story short: too much bad cholesterol (eggs/sausages,etc.): more fresh fruits and vegs would be desirable. Portuguese cakes or sweets things like puddings are wonderful. None of that was on offer here. The building itself is wonderful, the décor is pleasant (wonderful pictures on the walls). You could do marvels here, if you wanted.
