Very nice quaint hotel. Great service, in a really central location near the train station, beach side and close to the promenade. Room is lovely, boutique like and nicely decorated. Great bathroom and two porches.

This allowed us to get lost without spending too many Euros!! Another reason the Lisbon Card is probably not a good value. The locals are friendly with advice but short on details. (Maybe it is ...
... and cameras galore. We happened upon many peacocks, two of which strutted with their feathers up. Fantastic. The peahens were not interested by the way.
An early dinner. When we walked in the waitress asked if we wanted lunch or just drinks. It was 5.45. You have to wait until 8.30 at least for dinner.
A great day. We move from this fantastic hotel tomorrow to Porto.
