Disappointing stay
It’s a beautiful hotel however the TV didn’t work. We advised the front desk and some tried to fix it but to no avail. We should have received a discount or some sort of compensation as this was a service we were paying for but nothing was offered. Also, the shower leaked everywhere.

A great start to a tour of Portugal
The hotel was very modern and beautiful. Loved our junior suite room. This hotel was part of tour package but we upgraded to the suite. The jacuzzi to soak in every night was much needed. The bed was big but very firm for me but otherwise no complaints at all.
