Lovely place to relax! The Spa, massage was fantastic (and I was under tremendous stress at the time). I got out of there as new! If you want quiet, peace and relaxation then go for it! As far as the everything else, it gives you also freedom to explore!
Thank Elisabete F

It's Unbelievable the lack of cleaning and hygiene in this resort. Was extremely negative. When contacted the director to speak about the conditions he refused to give the money back we payed on Internet for a room we enter for 5min only as it was impossible to remain there. Also was told to make a note in the complaint book or call police because they won't give the money back so we could find other solutions. Awful and disrespectful totally.
We took pics to prove lots of the following points:

1- The roof of the Bungalow 1 if literary falling in the room desk.
2- Several Big Spiders inside the room and many spider nets (pics posted). Crazy amount of mosquitos inside the room too.
3- Lack of floor cleaning and spider nets in many places.
4- Dirty wardrobe and floor.
5- Several human Hairs in Bed.
6- Blackout from windows Broken and dirty
7- Dirty Sofas with huge spots
8- Dirty "robes" and towels
9- Toilet Floor and shower floor super dirty
10- Dirty Chairs
11- Used sugar and Tea packages
12- Damaged and dirty walls
13- Broken showers

One of the most luxurious hotels I've dreamed with for several years. The place was under construction without access to lunch or dinner and the overall condition is poor. A good sightseeing is not enough to make me want to come back. We were informed of this in the moment we arrived.

We thought this would be a luxurious hotel in nature, nice after a few days in Porto. Little things went wrong at first. The light in the men's room by the lobby didn't work. No local information or maps or brochures about the hotel's service were available. The shade in our room was badly torn. The pool was closed for renovation. Then the lights in our room started flickering, going out and then back on and out again. It turned out that the whole hotel was out of power. It was close to 8 pm by this time, and we had planned to eat dinner in the hotel. Couldn't do that either. A nice woman at the desk did find us a pousada nearby and refunded our money. But this is not the sort of experience that one expects to have at what considers itself to be a high end hotel. If you want to stay in the area, better to go to the Pousada Caniçada.

This Hotel have the conditions for a very good 5 stars hotel. Excelent view. Very Nice decoration and room facilities. When i was there, the hotel was under renovations, and the facilities were a little bit dirty and not functional. But, i have the expectations that this would be a very interesting option in the future to come back again.
