Stayed overnight before flying out early the following morning, didn't get to use many of the facilities or explore the area. Breakfast provided was excellent and is associated with popular seafood restaurant (across the road) which they provided us a discount.

Not all the standard rooms do have TV, also a number don't have a view, except of a wall a few feet away.
The main room or "suite" is available at a bit of extra cost and comes complete with TV, A/C, safe and splendid view of the sea, liner berth and the lower town from the good sized balcony with table, chairs and hammock, though the drop is a long way down so don't book it if you don't like heights.
Lots of steps and long corridors, also the streets outside are very rough cobbles (like all of the local district), so you need to be firm of foot.
There's a choice of eating places within 50 metres with loads more, as well as plenty of entertainment, in Pelourinho, ten minutes walk down hill and up the other side.
Breakfast isn't cheap although the quality is fine and it's plentiful.
The hotel can arrange airport transfer, the price is reasonable and the taxi a properly licensed one. Allow an hour in case of traffic, though it should only take half that.
24 hour manning on the front desk and pleasant staff round it off.
