4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I was treated rudely and abruptly by one member of staff in the restaurant after I made a simple query about cutlery. He ignored me and was aloof with me that day and the following day. I bumped into the manager and I told him about it and then I found out that he no longer works at the hotel as appartently I was not the only one who found him to be rude. I have been to this hotel before so the lovely staff are Juao, Ricardo, Sara and Catarina. Relaxing tranquil hotel if you are after that type of a break.

    Nice hotel, too many smokers

    Really nice hotel close to the beach. Complex has excellent swimming pool area and the best rooms have views looking over this area. Unfortunately the hotel seems to have become a mecca for the smoking set as most of the guests were smokers. This made it rather difficult sitting out on our deck at night, as all our neighbours up, down and sideways were smoking on their decks. To be fair, there’s a lot of smokers in Spain & Portugal.
