The staff was very friendly and attentive. The rooms were very clean and modern, all new fixtures and the bed was very comfortable. Gorgeous garden and property.
Food left something to be desired, and the pool bar wasn't always staffed - at one point several guests were searching the Spa, hotel lobby, etc. for someone to place a drink order with. There isn't much to do around the property, which if you get cabin fever like I did by the 3rd day, you have to take a cab ride to Faro or some of the larger towns to sight see and eat at new restaurants.
A Portuguese 1800s Palace turned into a luxury boutique hotel with an excellent restaurant overlooking Faro.
Avoid high room numbers, it's a long walk to the last rooms.
The quiteness, the views, the nice decoration, the pool, the breakfast. Everything was very nice.
They don't provide free internet ; it costs 10 € per hour !!! For a big and luxury hotel (and certainly not cheap), they should provide internet in every room for free, we are in 2009.
It is not real palace as for example pousada de Queliz
Staff was very friendly, the bed was big and comfortable, the masseurs were very good, fresh lemonade to welcome you at the front desk
Dinner (not at all what would you expect from the pretentions and the price -was totally average!), the staff, although friendlywas sometimes inneficientely busy - or too many of them, or just not there....
