Had spent over a week touring Spain & decided to book 6 nights in one place and this seemed to tick the boxes. Checked in at hotel in town & were told that we could use the hotel chain spa & indoor facilities in town and were given armbands for this. Drove to location and found a beautiful spot on side of estuary - causeway a little hairy and parking at lower level of the site restricted however lots up at top by the large owners villa. This is a curious mix of very old - the mill itself, the main house, which has the pool and breakfast room and a cafe/ bar and lounge (run on an honesty basis) and additional accommodations which have been built in the grounds on the side of the hill leading down to the river. We the 1 bedroom estudio de moinho at the lower level. We didn't see inside any of the other accommodation so cannot vouch for its standard. They have obviously had an issue with damp in this property and there was a dampness in the bedroom. Also under sink a strong chemical smell. Cooking facilities were basic & difficult to use as no markings on the switches to indicate on/ off/ high/ low. The seating inside & out wasn't very comfortable, neither was the bed. It was all clean enough but tired & in need of a real thorough gutting. However we were not paying very much and you are really here for the location.
The owner, Heini, is the most lovely lady who made us very welcome and was extremely gracious and hospitable to us. She obviously loves her home and is very proud of what her late husband and her have created over the years. Not sure how much management Duna Parque hotels put in, but their staff were not on site but could be reached but phone.
The estuary views are incomparable especially at sunset and there is walking to be done around the curious deserted fish farm. You cannot swim in the lagoon or estuary here- there is an outdoor pool at the house and it is fine. The coastline here is fantastic and this is a great spot - but you need to have a car, and not mind slumming it a bit in the particular accommodation we had. We only stayed 3 nights then moved off to south coast. No walkable restaurants.
Very much in 2 minds about this place.

The bed of our house was great, with a wood roller thing that can be used to eat in bed, great pillows and sheets, cool that we could use their partner hotels amenities (pool, bar, etc.). The road is not that good, its a bumpy dirt road, but not that long. There was also a spider and ants in our room, and the cleaning ladies only made the bed. Other than that, great view and very peaceful

We slept in this hotel in May, in an warm weekend.
The access to the hotel is difficult, a steep descent in a dirt track.
But as soon as the descent ends, there comes a wonderful view of the river!!!
It is a very beautiful and peaceful location.
The receptionist did not excel in sympathy, but once we got to the room we were faced with a very large room, with ample kitchenette, a nice room with a huge double bed, and above all a large balcony directly over the river. Beautiful!
Some things in our house could be improved, and with little expense for the owner (certain paintings, cracks), but overall everything was very satisfactory, including the kitchenette that was fully equipped.
A negative point has to do with low water pressure, even in times of low use.
The surrounding area is very beautiful and deserves a walk. The view from the pool is beautiful! Canoeing, free of charge, was special!
The surrounding city of Vila Nova de Milfontes is beautiful, with astonishing views to the river and to the ocean. There are excellent and cheap restaurants.
They didn't charge anything for an extra child bed.

In short:

Cons:
- Low water pressure

Pros:
+ Magnificent views from the house and throughout the resort
+ Huge house (with cable/satellite tv and wifi)
+ Fully equipped kitchenette
+ Free canoe ride
+ Cheap meals in town
+ Cheap accommodation
+ Free child bed

Room tip: Each room is good! Each room has amazing views!

The view is really breathtaking. It sure is. But it only makes us wonder why the hell the owners do not cherish this spot as it should be.

Didn't have someone to receive us, had to call 2/3 times. The whole facilities are old and in need of serious intervention. The bathroom wasn't very clean. It felt like they were being sloppy about the place.
