Our third year here and we couldn’t have been happier with our stay. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. We felt very safe while we stayed during Covid.

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.
