We stayed in a studio apartment last week, which was lovely & overlooked the swimming pool.
It was very spacious & the kitchen, whilst small, was perfectly adequate.
We ate in the new gourmet burger restaurant, which was amazing & the staff were so nice.
I can't rate this hotel high enough. The location was great, near the beach but also the amenities onsite were great too with about four swimming pools, which considering it was August were not overcrowded.
We will definitely return there next year.

Systems at reception very slow - checking in/ new room key/queried took ages
Shuttle bus organisation needs sorting
One night it took 90 mins due to full coaches/ no proper queue/ I don't expect to have to get to the bus stop 30-45 mins ahead of everyone else to ensure I get a seat on the bus'!!!!

When you walk into the hotel lobby it is spacious, modern and clean. Check in quick and easy. Bags are delivered to your suit.
Breakfast had a large selection of food available, your typical English breakfast buffet, you can request an omelette and it's made on the spot. Continental breakfasts, and fruit salads. The only downfall was the "fresh juice" actually came from a carton. Would be nice if they served freshly squeezed orange juice.
We stayed in a family suite which is on the first floor, room spacious, balcony with sofa and table. A nice place to chill in the evening with a view of the marina. However a lack of bright lights, found myself having to turn on all the lamps and mini bar light etc. Better lighting is needed when you have children.
WiFi is not very good you only get 60mins of light Internet surfing. Then you have to pay... this should be unlimited and free considering it is a luxury hotel.
Being a 5* I think some sort of welcome pack for children should be given for an added special touch.
Snacks laid out near the coffee machine you would think is free however they are actually chargeable items so be careful and coffee is chargeable but not kettle in the room so you can make tea.
This hotel is in the perfect location, 2 clean swimming pools, pool bar, access to the beach. Beach restaurants, marina outside hotel. Rooms cleaned on a daily basis towels changed everyday. 30min drive to zoomarine and aqaland near by.

The hotel is near Saldahna and has a metro station there too. It's easily accessible direct from the airport. A single 'tube' on the Red Line (Vermelha underground line) costs €1.40. Plus €0.50 for the travel card.
The area felt safe and we had no concerns using the station at night.
The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are quite small, and the bathroom is very small, but fine. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked really well. The hotel is very quiet, you sort of wonder how many people are staying there - could be the week we chose.
We had the breakfast included in our room rate, and it was a really good buffet. We ate in the restaurant too - a fixed bio menu, which was a mix of English and Portugese styles. They also do very good salads and burgers.
There is a local Resaurant next door - Cave Real which was very good for fish. We weren't there long enough to try out more.
All of Lisbon and its sights are about 30 mins from the hotel.

Everything about this hotel was excellent. We were upgraded on arrival and given welcome drinks. Our room overlooked the Rose Garden and the sea and the views were peaceful and relaxing. We were able to enjoy live music from our balcony each night if we chose to or shut it out if we didn't want to hear it. The food selection was varied and of an excellent quality. The staff were friendly and accomdating, even when many were worried about the fires that were spreading around the island whilst we were there! In fact, the fires were the only blot on our holiday, everything else was superb.
