Five Star ... location, yes, the rest no I would only give three stars!

We booked a weekend stay for our Wedding Anniversary, when we arrived the reception staff were friendly and welcoming, our room was not ready so we decided to have a drink in the pool bar. The setting of the hotel is fantastic, the views superb, the service at the pool bar is poor, very slow. I understand that some staying in a five star resort don't want to be constantly interrupted by staff asking if the food is OK or if they need a drink, but proper training would allow staff to be attentive without being intrusive, and to recognise when their service might be appreciated. When our room was prepared it was for us a disappointment, I know it is a 'design hotel' but we walked into a room which was gloomy and dark - grey, black and red might be contemporary and suit a swish Manhattan hotel but not in an historic building with sea views and next to a historic monument. Walking up the stairs to the room was not a pleasant experience - black walls, black carpets and poor lighting - when coming in from the sun not good, an accident waiting to happen! The restaurant setting is wonderful, breakfast was good - nothing special but good, the staff were again pleasant but not well trained. Very little interaction with guests, right down to removing plates when finished. Sorry but there needs to better customer care and training and for the price advertised no way is it worth it. The drinks and food are expensive and nothing special and the coffee machine in the room, whilst a nice touch, is not free you are charged for coffee!!! The standard of cleaning was poor, glasses and cups left dirty when beds turned down - that is not five star service. The bathroom, 98% matt black from floor to ceiling was depressing, the leatherette covering of headboard and dressing area was ill-fitting and looked 'cheap'. I have stayed in many hotels (in Portugal and worldwide) and complimentary tea and coffee is normally standard. The hotel has potential, but the décor and poor training didn't make it welcoming that we wanted to spend time, other than sleeping, in the hotel. sorry not for me, as a regular traveller I like to have new experiences and stay in different places but and I don't think we would go back to that hotel.

Very nice

No chance this is a 5 star resort. The only positive thing to say is the view of the ocean is beautiful. Service sucked, breakfast below average, under staffed, music vibrating all night kept me awake till past 3AM in the morning even when complaining multiple times, pool is cold and too salty, just poor overall.
