Great location and beach club and transportation to it was great! Unfortunately the dining room on the property while charming had terrible service and food was sub par for a high end property like this. Go someone else to eat. Beach club food for lunch was much better.

A Hidden Gem
This is an exceptional hotel, a gem in a beautiful corner of Portugal. It isn’t cheap so I arrived with high expectations and the Grand House and it’s staff did not disappoint and in fact my expectations were exceeded. The staff were elegantly presented and their service levels were second to none. The food was beautiful, my room was fabulously spacious and comfortable as were the lounging areas of this fabulous old building. The transfer service to and from their beach club (5minutes) was consistently available with friendly and helpful drivers. The beach club itself was glorious, amazing views over the sea and a few dolphins even swam by to perform for the residents. Again the service, comfort and food at the beach club were real five star.
