The hotel is lovely. In a great location close to the beach. The only thing I would wish for is that the soundproofing was better. I could hear the people next door!

Loved it!!!
Would have loved to stay longer, nice staff, great facilities, the best part was the indoor pool, it wasn't cold!!! Amazing live entertainment at the bar, a library, what more could you want? Beware the thin walls though on the ground floor though...we were woken up by an old woman coughing in room next door. Ideally if they could space people out that would be better.

8/10 Very good

Excellent location right on the edge of the old town. Had a fabulous room with full sea view although we’d only booked a side sea view. Liked the fact that all rooms have a kitchenette. Very comfortable bed, bathroom functional - nothing special but nice toiletries. Standards of cleaning excellent. Good breakfast, staff very efficient and good about ensuring covid safety was paramount. We finished our breakfast every day with a glass of sparkling wine and a Portuguese custard tart sitting in the terrace usually in the sunshine. Lovely! Dinner in the main restaurant a bit disappointing. Quality of food was good but it had a weekly revolving menu of two choices of starter, main and dessert. Felt a bit old fashioned to do this. No vegetarian options on the menu although I’m sure they would have offered something if you asked. Don’t think the hotel promote themselves very well. For example they have half price drinks in the main bar from 6pm to 7.30pm but this really wasn’t advertised properly. Indoor pool was lovely. One day I went down there to find an acquafit class taking place. Didn’t see this advertised anywhere. Maybe I’m just not very observant. Overall a very good hotel and very likely that we will return.
