I'm not sure how much this room goes for on the corporate rate, but I know when I checked in the 'going rate' listed on the room I'm in was 500 Euros! :shock:
Anyway, I went out looking at some of the restaurants for food. I didn't feel like eating too fancy tonight, so I opted for room service. There is a nice Japanese restaurant here, but it's not open tonight. Seems to be the theme of the day! Everything I want to do is closed. =(
Here's a couple more photos....
I wandered down by the spa and pools. It kind of reminds me of the place in "Paradise Hotel" with all the different areas on different levels, multiple pools and large suites.
There are plenty of gardens and stuff. There is a Jesus thing on that mountain. Apparently they like him here in Portugal or something...
More gardens...more pools....
This is what I look like after 24 hours of air travel, no sleep, and looking for food!
"Stewed pork cheek" and "biologic duck???" Did the duck have implants??!?! Hmmm.....
....I'll stick to a cheese pizza and a foo-foo chocolate thing from room service! =)

Robb, if I'm not mistaken, you can go up to that big fish tank a choose which fish you want to eat!
I thought the same exact thing when I saw the pictures. I saw the same program, the hotel was designed with the all those windows so the Dragon could come from the hills and make it to the ocean. Robb, I liked your comment on the Bedei (I think that's how it's spelled) and the commode, choose wisely indeed
Ok, so today I had nothing to do. I'm kind of bummed that I wish I would have known that in advance because I would have done the insane drive to Madrid. But on my schedule it said "set up" which I was supposed to be around for 'just in case' but it turned out that the producers weren't needed. Oh, well....I have to remember, this is a 'business' trip, not one of our fun trips! And there will be plenty of time this weekend for some parks!
Anyway, today I took a walk around the resort, so here is my "Walking Around the Resort Photo TR!!!!"
Wow, whoever is staying in this room is lucky since it's guarded by these two evil statues!
Gee...I wonder which way the hotel is? Hmm......
Here is the official entrance to the "Penha Longa" resort.
At least I can get a "Bench: The Ride" credit here!
Hello, here I am in Portugal...um...yeah....
I think this sign means "In 20 meters SPEED UP so you can hit the golfers!!!" =)
Here is another sign, but I'm not sure what this one means... Maybe it's "Be afraid of yellow spikey armed people with pigtails???"
For some reason, in Portugal I have extra ridges on my forehead. Must be the water or somthing....
Here is a picture of the truck that just asked me for directions (well, ok, not the truck, the guy IN the truck...because, I mean, if there was actually a TALKING TRUCK I would have taken a LOT more pictures!)
anyway... the guy asked me something in Portuguese and I politely responded "everything you are looking for is on the moon." He seemed satisfied with the answer and drove off! I hope he finds what he's looking for....on the moon!
