Stunning view. Physical fitness facilities like something out of a Bond movie.
The swimming pool was excellent with the only hassle being having to purchase swimming caps for our family at €3 each, you must wear swimming caps and have shower before entering the pool. It is strictly enforced.
The not free breakfast was excellent with a great choice of fruit being a pleasant surprise and is not often seen in Portugal hotels at this price point. (Portugal enjoys great quality fruit-so kind of odd it isn't often available in hotel breakfasts).
The view from the hotel is stunning it is perched high on a hill.
We enjoyed our stay.
We used the hotel as a stop off point whilst touring through Portugal and Spain. It is well located and sign posted in the town and offers secure off street parking, which I would suggest you use. We had a good meal in the hotel in the evening and a pleasant walk round the old town.
A good breakfast was included in our room rate and it was perfectly adequate, with a good choice.

Elsa & Team, We enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you for the warm welcome upon arrival.
Excellent hotel! Newer property and kept extremely clean. Front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast area is spacious and one of the best I have experienced while in Portugal. Fresh vegetable and fruit in addition to all the other hot and cold items. I highly recommend to others when in the area. There isn't too much for sight seeing which was just fine for my husband and I who were just looking to relax from our 10 day trip in Portugal. There is a restaurant on site which serves fresh local dishes and was accommodating to me as I eat strictly vegetarian.
