Let me first start by saying that there is no doubt that the property is beautiful and that the facilities are consistent with what you would expect from a luxury resort. However, the staff is inattentive and scarce. Additionally the food prices at the resort are almost 5x-8x higher than even the highest-end luxury restaurants in Portugal. We had dinner for 4 at the piri piri steak house and spent nearly 460 euros. Having spent time in Lisbon and Porto before our arrival, we had become well-versed with the expected prices in Portugal; and there is no other way to say it, the food at the resort is a rip off! Had the food been something spectacular I would not have cared as much, but the food is mediocre at best. My feeling is that it’s a good place to stay and relax but do not buy anything from there. Another example is the 50 euro bottle of sunscreen I bought from the pharmacy there. As I said, buy nothing from there!
