We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. Initially i was disappointed with the length of time for the transfer (1 1/2 hours) but the hotel and location more than made up for this and the patience was worth it.
The Hotel was situated right on the beach with the options of being by the pool or on the beach. I did find the charge for the beach a little excessive at 13.00 euros though. The staff are second to none, nothing was too much trouble and they were all so polite and friendly (very different from spain)
The surrounding areas are undergoing some improvements, however this did not cause any inconvenience to us. The works will look fabulous when finished.
There is a fantastic restaurant on the beach called Rocha Da Palha about quarter of a mile down that we found. The prices are reasonable and the foods excellent.
There are limited places to eat so you might want to consider half board at the hotel. We only had breakfast and wished we had book full or half board. The food at the hotel is wonderful, freashly made and a vast selection even for a picky eater like me. Overall we had a fantastic holiday, the hotel is superb and if i go back i would definately stay again.
