The best location
First they put me into a room which was not cleaned from the former guests - which was gross and dangerous given the COVID situation. However, they have upgraded me into a room with a lovely view which I appreciated a lot. To me the location of the hotel was the best in Ria Formosa area - with the 3 min access to the beach via the hotel ferry - terrific! However, the hotel itself is old and outdated and does not justify the price level.
