          I didn't know what's customary in Portugal so we used the general UK rule: 5-10% depending on service. Usually I try to use cash direct to the individual rather than adding to a bill when paying with a card.

          From memory there are ash trays on the balcony - so it's a yes - as long as you're not next to me...
          If the weather is warm in April when we are coming,do you provide beach towels at all and can you smoke outside at the hotel,also are the shops far to walk to,many thanks.
