I am staying at Enotel Quinta do Sol hotel and my room sadly over looks the extensive renovation work. It is excessively noisey and continues from dawn to dusk.

I was excited to visit these gardens and walked around for ages trying to find them. I had walked past without realising at it was all boarded up due to re-development and is no longer a viable attraction.

The park appears to be closed -- there are fences around it. We could see the gardeners hard at work and signs that some restoration is in progress. Let's hope so.

This park has seen better days. There are still flower beds and pathways that are maintained but we were astounded to see abandoned outdoor swimming pools, animal enclosures, terraces and cafes. Seems such a waste of what must have been at one time a vibrant...More

Staying in the hotel opposite we ventured into this garden but were a little disappointed in how it appeared quite run-down. There were pockets of very pretty plants and flowers, and one could visualise how pretty and utilised this garden must have been. Despite its...More
