esn't feel like Portugal

Basic requests like kitchen equipment (chef knife or any other than bread knife, manual orange juice squeeze) were neglected several times. Those are not expensive. Service and staff not on a good level. Didn't feel like Portugal 😒 e.g. In a bar i ordered and paid for fresh squeezed juice. Instead I got carton one. When complained i got response - yes but then I would need to take more time to squeeze it! Sic! Isn't that what I paid for?

    O alojamento foi o suficiente para 4 noites, a piscina é grande e com espreguiçadeiras à disposição. Dá para ir a pé para a praia do alemão. Tudo espaçoso e limpo, foram 4 dias bastante agradáveis.
