Two nights at Santa Clara
A very beautiful hotel. The room was lovely, and had pretty views. The odd thing was nobody was there except us and a little tour bus. When we arrived, no one at reception. It said to ring bell. No bell there. We called Ola a few times, and eventually someone arrived. Didn't say hello. The restaurant was not open, except for the included breakfast. Breakfast supposed to be 8-10. We arrived 8:30 and not set up yet. The breakfast was quite good though. Second morning, instead of buffet, the woman brought us what we wanted some the only guests were us and one other. The wall showerhead squirted all over, including over the shower curtain. Luckily there was also a handheld shower option. Hot water took more than 5 minutes to arrive in the shower. Again, lovely place, but they seem to be struggling, even though trying hard. Location could be the issue as it's isolated.

A beautiful setting and a nice place but there was very little atmosphere, very few staff around and the food was poor which is probably why very few people ate there in the evenings - adding to the quiet odd atmosphere. No drink making facilities in the room. The pool was small, and the little area where food/drinks could be ordered was never open. It had all the opportunity to be excellent but fell short. A shame. We left a day early.

It’s all about location and the setting for this hotel is simply wonderful,the views over the lake on one side and then views as far as the eye can see on the other. The swimming pool area is quiet with good beds and umbrellas although if hotel busy guess would be a bit of a rush to get a brolly. The bar area poolside is basic to say the least and not always staffed. The bar area in the hotel again hardly ever staffed and the same goes for the restaurant. Lovely room perfectly adequate,clean and glorious views over lake. Difficult choice to make for room ones with lake view do not get sun from about 11 The hotel has huge staff shortages and those that are there are helpful smiling and lovely....but it’s simply just so annoying that you can’t get the service you want when you want it. No menus for dinner,just two choices,no prices displayed for food or drinks,you order and it appears on your bill and not that itemized either,which is simply not acceptable Breakfast was ok a very simple buffet style which was perfectly adequate..HOWEVER we managed to forget this as the quiet tranquility and views and just the ability to ‘relax’ made the stay perfect. It’s a drive to nearby Santa Clara and this is a very very basic village,yes it has a petrol station two bars and two shops ..but no restaurant,nearest is in Odemira quite a drive. To sum up this could be a simply stunning hotel,but at the moment it needs some serious management and staffing improvements.
