A very relaxing stay. Stayed in Superior Room with sea view - which was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The only downfall was the bar which lacked atmosphere.

After staying at the marvelous Pestana in Lissabon we were looking forward to enjoy this beachfront location. We were immediately disappointed because the building is quite dated, and arriving with 5 pieces of luggage, we were coldly directed to our room but none of the staff (doorman simply watched) did offer any help while watching me work the heavy load...

We booked this hotel for a long weekend away as part of our 40th birthday celebrations and some time away from the kids! To be honest we couldn't have wished for a better weekend.

Reviewed 11 May 2015

Rooms are adequate but not cleaned very well. Wellness centre closed for week I was here. Was not advised in advance. Food is terrible ! Canteen style school dinners with little imagination. Apart from three small (ish) sandy beaches little to do. Local town 10 minutes away by car and uninspiring. Overall just very average.
