We visit every year and never have any complaints. We love the outdoor 1920s swimming pool. It is so big you always have plenty of room to swim. This year quite enjoyed the aqua aerobics. Aqua Zumba was quite stupid. Breakfast could be improved but is fairly normal for Portuguese hotels. Always very clean. There are spa facilities. Best to... More

Located in an amazing quiet village this hotel offers an amazing experience. Very clean room, nice bed and bathroom. The thing I enjoyed most was the Olympic sized pool with lots of areas to sunbathing. It's amazing if you have kids... The breakfast is OK. The staff is always nice and helpful.

This stylish hotel is in an elegant and pretty little spa town within walking distance of lovely woodlands with a dozen or so bars and restaurants on the doorstep. It has an Olympic-size outdoor pool plus heated indoor. The staff are brilliantly friendly and genuinely helpful; the services are all of the highest standard

The rest of the hotel is mostly splendid but it lets itself down in a number of areas so it is only pretty fab rather than absolutely fabulous. The good points - we had a decent sized... More
