Having visited Portugal several times and loved it, this place was disappointing. Location good close to shops restaurants etc, that was all on a positive note. Ask for €100 deposit not told why, appears this is randomly ask for having spoken to other guests. Pool bar is a walk in shop, no background music, atmosphere very poor. The nicest staff were the cleaners, only one pleasant receptionist (Van).?? I think, woman who sat behind a door at back of reception, ,appeared at times , very rude, unhelpful and walked away when we tried to make enquiries. The breakfast was very poor, had to ask for toast, as they had cereal, bread ham, cheese and 1 hard boiled egg, didn't return . Definitely not worth the money, much,much nicer places to stay.
