    The location is perfect and the hotel's infra is incredible. Everything you would expect on a Six Senses hotel in terms of environment and activities offered. The décor has more to an American luxury chain such as like Four Seasons rather than the local Quintas', but that is the price you pay for the comfort offered, after all, the place is huge! Concierge on arrival was very efficient and promptly arranged the specific visits to local wine producers we requested, as well as transportation. Another positive point was the private wine tasting and explanation provided by Mario from the wine cellar. He surely knows his bottles! The wine cellar's variety is excellent and allows you to access the best available in the the region, which sort of mitigates the considerable price mark-up. Food is just ok, not outstanding. Our overall experience was within our expectations.

    Service. It isn't exactly bad, but tends to be slow and confusing. Unfortunately, this seems to be a major problem in Portugal when it comes to luxury services. Examples: breakfast "table arranging" system is confusing and you struggle to get your hot beverages without having to order 2-3 times. In addition, the guy entitled to operate the eggs (at an open bar in the middle of the main restaurant, which makes some heavy smoke and smell) is frenetically speaking to the staff, constantly clinking his tools and when I ordered egg white omelettes, not only he made that "turning eye emoji" face as slipped the interjection "misericórdia" (something like "for God's sake"). The sommelier at the main restaurant took so long to appear that we had already given up waiting for his advise when he came to take our order. I don't think the problem are one or two employees, let me be clear. Staff doesn't treat you bad, they just lack the training needed to service at a place like Six Senses. Gym should have more cardio machines, as only 2 treadmills seems little in peak times. I would highly recommend a stair simulator. The SPA massages are above average but really guys, "best in Europe" is a bit pushy. Definitely not comparable to the service offered by the Six Senses chain in Asia. Bonus: management team should really advise staff to be careful when addressing Brazilian clients (which are considerable in the hotel, for obvious reasons). I do understand there's a difference in the way Portuguese people are more "straight to the point" when communicating, but it is very easy to be misunderstood as rude. This is probably what happened when I called reception asking for an iron for my room and was told that there was none available. By the way, really? At a 800EUR/night 5* hotel?
