Wonderful location and wonderful staff- willing to help all the time. The property is beautiful and the beach is exceptional. Breakfast buffet is the best in Portugal. However, the property is older and needs remodel.

Beautiful property. We had the garden view deluxe room which was beautiful but had view of the gardens. We asked for an upgrade and paid extra for a smaller not as luxurious room that had an amazing view. Breakfast buffet was included and was extensive. Other than that, I thought the prices for lunch and dinner were over inflated making it hard to justify. We had a car and opted to eat off the hotel grounds at great little towns all Within 30 minute away while exploring.

There's nothing unique about this resort that makes it stand out from the rest. All the amenities, services, activities are identical to the ones you can find in other resorts. For a 5 star hotel, it'd be apt to provide a free shuttle to and from the airport and city, free water at the beach, some refreshments after the beach. Reservations to all amenities at this resort are a MUST. There's very little chance, if any, you'll have a tennis court, a beach chair without reserving them first.
