The hotel has been refurbished in the last few years and is very clean and modern. We had a standard deluxe suite (not the family suite) which... More

Just back from our second stay at the sao rafael suite hotel and my review from last year still stands, the hotel is outstanding. First class service, spotlessly clean rooms and facilities and the new addition of the meditteranean restaurant is fantastic. Also having lunch in the main restaurant instead of the pool bar was a brilliant idea as lunchtimes... More

Friendly staff, very nice rooms and amenities, we loved the beach nearby and the food was excellent! Lots of children running around, so if peace and quiet is your thing then this isn't the place for you! Pity the gym wasn't available for use too.
