I was bitterly disappointed about our room (N0 207). We had paid extra for a Sea View, however when looking from our balcony the view was blocked by some concrete construction, which I am still not what it was and large trees. We could just about see the Sea but I would say it was less 10% of the overall scene (picture available if you want it). I did complain and was willing to pay extra for a room on a higher floor but was told the Hotel was full. Over the week I asked a few guests who were on the 3rd and 4th floors when they booked there holiday and about 50% of them had made reservations in the past 3 months, which seems to me there is no advantage in booking early as you will only be allocated a poor room. As to the room, it was kept spotless by the cleaning staff and they are to be congratulated. The bars and restaurants were Ok but nothing special. The hotel want 25 euros for an evening meal (20 euros) if you book the day before for a buffet type service. As you can get a very decent meal with a drink for two in Alvor (15 mins away) for less 40 euros, I would avoid the hotel. If you are having breakfast, get there before 0800 as after then it is a bit of a "Bun Fight". Next to the hotel is the Pestana golf shop and the staff in there were excellent. We needed to change some dates and times for our vouchers and nothing was too much trouble for them, once again the staff should be congratulated, as with all the general staff of the hotel.
