We booked this hotel for 4 nights away. On arrival the reception was a little chilly, as the outside weather was windy and wet. There was a big Christmas tree lit up, which gave some festive cheer. It was very noticeable that there was no piped music, Christmas carols would have been appreciated. Reception staff very helpful. Room itself, had a balcony and en suite, all very clean, but the sockets for electrical items in the wall, were loose and in danger of pulling away. TV - only local channels, some old English movies and programmes, but there was Sky News, CNN etc. The pool and leisure facilities were very good, a big indoor pool and cosy and warm. The restaurant was an nightmare. There was a small lit up Christmas tree on entry and some cardboard cut out trees on each table. It was my opinion that the kitchen was staffed by "work experience" chefs, the meals they produced in the evening were beyond anyone's imagination. For the Christmas Day Gala meal, one of the options was meatballs in tomato sauce, and also a very soggy lasagne. All very disappointing. There was a serving point, where a large cookpot was boiling away, with supposedly beef stroganoff in it. No signs of any cream sauce however, and although queues were forming, no-one was serving until motivated. When a friend did try the stroganoff, it was incredibly tough. I had to point out to the waiter that we were well into our main course with still no drinks being offered. The breakfasts were reasonable, and self service. The hot water urn for the T bags was constantly empty. We made a decision not to eat at the hotel on our last night, but walked into the town and found a wonderful Portuguese local restaurant which restored our faith in good food. The supposed evening entertainment left a lot to be desired, on Christmas Eve the music quiz appeared to have been cancelled. On Christmas Day there was a guitar player, accompanied by some sort of pre recorded loud backing music, which did not encourage anyone to get up and dance, or even stay in the bar for drinks. The underground car park, costs €7 a day, but lacks security. It only has barriers from the outside road, which means anyone can access parked cars. There might have been CCTV, but definitely no-one on duty.

Cannot fault the cleanliness of the hotel. But it was Christmas and felt the hotel had not made much of an effort. There was a large tree in the reception area which made you feel this is the start. No decorations in the bar area. . A small Christmas tree as you entered the dining room. Cut out Christmas trees on some of the dining tables. That was it in the whole of the hotel. No nativity scene and definitely nothing that sparkled. Christmas Day 'Gala' menu consisted of meatballs in tomato sauce and tough beef stroganof (if there was someone to serve you) Also a fish dish. General opinion was this hotel did not want to do Christmas. Music in the evening was morbid and not able to dance to,
