We booked this hotel over the internet. When we got there we were told it was only open until Sunday, but they had put us in their sister hotel next door which was a 4 star, the sister hotel was rubbish and much less than 4 star so we opted to remain in the Dominio do Sol and told them... More

The staff were friendly but the room was tired, very dated, no kettle, no plug for basin in bathroom, very little crockery some lights did not work. We knew it was going to be... More

This was inexpensive, clean and comfortable. Having read the reviews AFTER booking I expected it to be far worse. The kitchen was basic (we weren't there to cook though, just to make breakfast and drinks). We had to ask for a kettle and a toaster which were provided immediately. Air conditioning was very efficient although we had to ask for... More

My husband and I stayed at this aparthotel in a studio apartment for 1 week in early April 2007. It was the result of a "free gift" for attending a timeshare presentation in Australia and we did not actually choose the hotel ourselves. Given the mixed reviews this place had received I was rather concerned about what we were going... More

I had already booked the holiday when i found this website so was a little worried!! When we first arrived it was a bit of a shock; the hotel was very '1970's modern' with old floors and colours. There was a mystery odor in reception eugh!! The room was large but in desperate need of a make-over. Furniture was functional... More

It claims to have a gymnasium and heated pool, but these belong to the hotel next door. Upon arrival the reception staff gave us a ticket and said if you want to use next doors facilities show them this ticket. My Husband and friend wanted to use the gym but was met by staff that were rude and they took... More

I wish I knew about this website when I booked because I would have avoided this hotel. It was closing at the end of October 2005 for refurbishment and I would say not before time. We were unlucky and had a lot of rain, this meant buckets and towels laid out in reception due to a leaky roof. The apartment... More
