    I think it will need a modernizing refurbishment sooner or later.

    Balcony of the room with a wonderful view to the Atlantic Ocean. The sunset and sleeping with the sound of the ocean were magical moments.

    Price is very high for what they offer. The restaurant was not open for 2 days. A hotel should offer food to their customers. Breakfast starts already late; from 07:30. And still it was not finished. Not all was prepared on time.

    Distance between job (yard) and hotel. Room was pretty good.

    Could have done without the music in the restaurant, it was the same at breakfast and in the evening, repetitive, boring, Jazz. Not my cup of tea, nor, I suspect, anyone else's. A table and a couple of chairs on the veranda would have been preferable to just two sun loungers, the veranda was certainly large enough to accommodate them. Location was a bit of a let down, nearest neighbours were a very shut bowling alley and several industrial units, some of which were derelict. Not a lot going on of an evening unless you are prepared to head two or three miles into town.

    Breakfast was OK, we dined in the restaurant on three nights and the food was excellent, as was the service. We had a room with a sea view, room was a good size and the veranda was probably as big as the room and got the sun from midday onwards.

    Bar and restaurant staff were not very friendly. The breakfast was continental style, but if you wanted anything resembling a FEB (full English breakfast) you will be disappointed, as it was just luke warm scrambled egg, bacon & sausage every day!

    Super location for the sea front. Good size room with full 180 degree sea view. Good reception staff. Bikes available for free hire. Good for seafront walks.

    Shame it is positioned at the end of an industrial area but you cannot see it from hotel. Beach is very small.

    Excellent hotel with modern an clean comfortable rooms. Good view of the ocean from balcony. Staff were friendly and helpful. Quite a walk from centre of town. Breakfast was excellent.

    The dinner in the resturante did not live up to our expectations nore did the breakfast which was very "poor"! If you stay Sunday the restaurante is closed and not so much to choose between in the area.

    The view! The view! The view! The room was big and light. Wonderful beds. Balcony with sunchairs and Sunset! Nice resturant with view! :) English spoken staff in the reception.

    The Spa was run by a third Party and was crowded and not as Relaxing as the Hotel was.

    The sea view was fabulous and the staff of the Hotel very friendly. The Restaurant was good.

    It's a little out of the main town but a reasonable walk or quick taxi ride.

    We had a room with a view of the ocean and it was beautiful to watch the sunsets and the walking path out the front was very handy. We ate at the restaurant a couple of times and loved the food, particularly the fish rice.

    Extra chair in the room , by the desk would be nice, especially for room service breakfast in the mornings.

    I had a room facing the sea, which is really close, with large windows and large balcony which was amazing for the view, especially as it faces West. Room was a nice large size with a large comfortable bed, minibar, flat screen and on suite bath/ shower. Restaurant was good with good wine list. I had breakfast delivered to the room in the mornings for a small additional fee, but it was well worth it especially looking at the sea. Front desk Staff were very polite and extremely helpful pointing out nearby places to visit. Nice decor throughout hotel. Plenty of 'off the street' onsite parking. There is a large Bar, a Gym and a Spa with massage facilities available at hotel, but I didn't have time to use them.

    No mosquito protection at the balcony door. Not possible to leave door open in the night. Restaurant opens at 20h only. Even that this is normal in Portugal I expect in a hotel more flexibility.

    Rooms to the Atlantic have a great view. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking free of charge.

    The location description in misleading. Yes, on the coast but beaches and restaurants etc are a drive away. Not a picturesque town

    Rooms, spa and bar were nice and sensible prices.
