  • 8.0.Very good

    I was treated rudely and abruptly by one member of staff in the restaurant after I made a simple query about cutlery. He ignored me and was aloof with me that day and the following day. I bumped into the manager and I told him about it and then I found out that he no longer works at the hotel as appartently I was not the only one who found him to be rude. I have been to this hotel before so the lovely staff are Juao, Ricardo, Sara and Catarina. Relaxing tranquil hotel if you are after that type of a break.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very clean, staff friendly, relaxing. Close to beach. Be aware there isn’t any area in the town for bars or restaurants or much to wander around / look at in the evening - hotel also doesn’t have any evening atmosphere. it is more of a quiet local residential neighbourhood. The hotel kindly recommended some really good restaurants though which were only short uber rides away.

    What's not to like?

    Lovely quiet adults only hotel. Only stayed 2 days but found it fabulous. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Would recommend if you want a relaxed chilled break. Bonus is it's close to a great beach too although I am a poolside person it is good to know it's a very short walk to the sea. Rooms had tea making facilities and small fridge....excellent for a tea person like myself. All in all could not fault this little piece of paradise!
