          Why are the prices SO outrageous??-£1454 for 2 weeks half board in November is an unbelievable rip off.This hotel used to be good value-£750 for 2 weeks. These prices are more than DOUBLE those of other 4 star hotels snd much higher than Spanish 4 stars. Portugal had a competitive advantage over Spain because it's hotel prices were reasonable. You are going to lose it. Why these outrageously high prices??
