A friendly, boutique-style property with a cheerful seaside aspect, devoted to creating a peaceful and restorative ambiance.

This is a gorgeous property which blends traditional Portuguese blue and white colonial architecture with French Provençal style and flair. Each of the guest suites displays its own unique décor and character, but all share many references to the sea and marine life along with antique objets d'art.

Luxuriate in the space, translucent light and cool flooring indoors, while the pool and garden offer you tranquil spots to relax in the open air. There’s a beach in front of the hotel and water sports such as stand-up-paddling can be arranged so you can enjoy the ocean.

It's all very romantic without being schmaltzy: you can dine al fresco on the terrace with sea views, and indulge in choices from a menu of spa services. The hotel is especially praised for the excellent level of service delivered by the welcoming staff.
