We have just spent a week here and booked it mostly down to Trip Adviser reviews. Really clean modern hotel 5 mins to beautiful beaches and a very reasonable beach bar just at the bottom of the steps, 3.50 euros taxi ride to the old town and if you want to go to the strip 5 mins walk. (there is a fabulous jewellery shop on the left hand side of the strip about 500m into the strip have a look my husband wished I hadn't) All the staff in the hotel were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble when I managed to lock myself out of the safe a receptionist came up to the room immediately. Also BIG THANKS for the complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolates for my husbands birthday a really nice touch. The breakfast choice was huge and yes it was busy but hey chill you are on holiday. Likewise the sunbeds outside were also busy but if you want them get up early or go to the beach. Go onto the roof on a sunny day the views are amazing great phtotgraphs. There were some lovely bars & restaurants just out of the hotel and across the road Netto in particular the staff couldn't do enought for you and even gave us a lift from the Old Town. Please try the Lemon Tree restaurant on the top of the old Town prior to going down the escalators it is to your left as if you were walking down to the beach it doesnt look much from the outside but the food was the most amazing Portugese food we had the smoked sardines and the beef goulash tapas size dishes were really good value with a fabulous view over the sea. A great holiday and we will be back.
