A classy hotel with elegant and impressive public areas and decor. Early July is off season for golf possibly explaining why the hotel guests were predominantely young families - not ideal for an older golfing couple. The pool area was “no go” without earplugs. The proximity to the golf courses is spoilt by a lack of shuttles back and forth, and a resultant high taxi costs. Quinta do Lago was around 500 metres away but cost between €9 and €12 ! There are plans to upgrade the suites, restaurant and add a lobby bar plus golf shuttle by the new owners. Could be a fine base for golfers but right now doesn’t quite get there.
