We stayed two nights in this hotel and we had a spacious one bedroom apartment with balcony. Our room was clean and there was air-conditioning. However, the room was very average and it could have used some serious redecorating/updating. The hotel is located around one kilometer from the beach and two kilometers from the beach avenue where most of the... More

The hotel was in desperate need of refurbishing - it was tired and needed a great deal of investment. Whilst the hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were excellent, the main pool was green with algae because the filters were not working and eventually the pool was closed for 3 days. The poolside showers did not work for a... More

We had a lovely one bedroom apartment on 1st floor between bar and entrance. The staff were all fantastic and friendly. The food in the snack bar was fantastic and reasonable. The bar didn't stick cola light but they did make nice cocktails. The kids club was practically non-existent and compared to other places I've stayed was a big let... More

I sometimes wonder if the good reviews are for a different Hotel. First of all I have to say that the staff make the hotel apart from the cleaners (or the ones we had ) When we first arrived we thought the place looked impressive but our room told a different story. It was shabby in obvious need of repairs... More

Back to Estrela again just 3 of us this time. Welcome very friendly as I expected. Our 1 bedroom apartment at the back this time overlooking car park and Alto Golf next door.

Firstly I'll start this review off with I'm the sort of person who is extremely hard too please. I'm not afraid to moan and will certainly speak my mind when needed too.
