My wife and I are just back after 10 days stay in Sol E Mar. The hotel is reasonable. Rooms are clean although some attention to detail needs to be attended to. It is in need of serious upgrading. By the looks of things it hasn't been updated since being built. Rooms although bright and clean look a bit dated... More

This was our second time to the Sol e Mar, our previous visit being November time and there was one thing that made a real big difference this time - the weather was glorious, around 26-30 degrees each day BUT the hotel doesn't have an outdoor pool area or any private gardens or land area for hotel guests to lounge...

Recently stayed for a week at this hotel. On arrival we were greeted by a complete stranger who asked if we had booked half board. After explaining why we preferred the B & B option she congratulated me profusely on making such a wise decision. Not a good start...... Breakfast turned out to be basic and uninspiring. The only variation... More

Parts of hotel merit it's 4 star rating ie reception and terrace but over all only deserves a 3 star rating. Food not good glad we only booked in for... More

just back from a 2 week stay at this hotel, our first trip to Portugal. The location is fabulous, the rooms basic but very clean. The food is very basic and choice very limited. Take extra money as there is nowhere to sit and sunbathe other than the beach at 15 euros a day for your loungers and umbrella. No... More

Yes as most reviews state might need a lick of paint here & there, is a bit dated but the sea views certainly compensate for that. Everywhere you went in the hotel ie bar, restaurant etc you got the view. I had no qualms at all about staying here. Stayed a week B&B and although food was repetitive the buffet... More

This Hotel is situated perfectly for the beech and the old town. The room service and cleanliness very good with clean linen and never a trace of sand to be found indoors even though constant traffic from the beech. Limited choice for breakfast, but all very nice. Staff very helpful with any requests. Will definitely recommend to any one wanting... More
