          Spent last New Year at this hotel. Lovely gala dinner. Good location in old town. Some steps. All rooms sea facing. Would go again. We had excellent weather free band and fireworks on beach. Not ultra modern but clean and comfortable.

          Why are the prices SO outrageous??-£1454 for 2 weeks half board in November is an unbelievable rip off.This hotel used to be good value-£750 for 2 weeks. These prices are more than DOUBLE those of other 4 star hotels snd much higher than Spanish 4 stars. Portugal had a competitive advantage over Spain because it's hotel prices were reasonable. You are going to lose it. Why these outrageously high prices??
