Modern clean room with a great view of the river in front of the door. It was actually cold for our visit and the owners wanted to make up a fire in the lounge just for us. Didn't bother as we went out every evening to walk around the town. I could pick at a few things but given that... More

We stayed on the ground floor apartment. Overall, bellow average accommodation, on a central spot, near the city center. Friendly staff, good view over the valley, but no breakfast and no wi-fi. Can't say I'd recommend it.

Hospedaria Rita has spacious, clean and modern rooms, all with balcony and great view on the bridge over the Guadiana river. Airco and a small fridge in every room. Breakfast is not included but available for € 5 pp. Rita and her husband are very friendly and helpful. The husband even gave our car a quick clean after all the... More

We stayed at Hospedaria Rita originally for 2 nights, but then asked for another night and ended up going back for a further two nights. The rooms are nice and big with huge beds and lovely balconies overlooking the river and were spoltlessly clean. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and I'm not sure what the review by Fatima... More

We stayed for one night. Room newly furnished, very comfortable with double and single bed, balcony overlooking the river. Large bathroom, shower controls resembled those of a nuclear reactor, but still no hot water. Drains smell not good, had to ensure bathroom door was closed overnight. Nice people, but best to have at least some Portuguese as no English spoken.... More

Other reviewers have commented on the large size of the rooms and the decor, and while this is true, just be careful with other aspects. Breakfast is an extra charge, and usually Portugal delights with a generous and varied free breakfast included. It was coolish when we stayed in December, and the large room makes it difficult to heat. Real... More

Initially we arranged to stay one night in Mertola and decided to stay at Hospedaria Rita on the basis of the glowing reviews here. We were not disappointed! The rooms are huge, immaculate and even have hammocks on the balconies overlooking the river. Great ensuite bathroom. As it was out of season, breakfast was not being served but the room... More

We found this place after not liking the look of the other hotels/inns located along the river. Hospedria Rita was a wonderful place. We had a room with huge bed and bathroom, ultra clean, overlooking the river. No breakfast was available due to out of season, but never mind, for 35€, it was a bargain. We were lucky to find...

The room was as described by other reviewers with an equally spectacular bathroom - the owners seem to have thought of everything but they uttered barely a word. We speak some Portuguese but we didn't need it as we didn't see anyone to talk to! The breakfast room was completely empty of guests, owners and food! We didn't mind we... More
