Room 318. After reading reviews and seeing photos on here was quite worried! Our 'suite' was very nice, clean & modern not dated at all. Nice bathroom. Very large comfy bed. additional small room with wardrobes and fridge, quite handy for drinks. Balcony overlooking grassed area near to pool. Free wifi was a bonus :-) Some staff were rather 'offish'... More

Pool and grounds are lovely, but the apartments are sad and dated. Lots of aged pine with peeling varnish, and cracked concrete walls, some painted, some bare. The kitchenette was basic, warped doors that didn't close properly, no electric kettle, just a pot to boil on the stove. First thing that greeted us on the table in the apartment was... More

Looks like all the rooms were orginally apartments (i.e. with full self catering facilities) but many are now termed 'suites' (which we booked) which have a very good sized bedroom (all rooms have good balconies) and a rather strange lounge (with limited light and some rather odd wardrobes and a full size fridge, along with a kettle and cups (no...

A typical vacation hotel with a great outdoor pool, pool areal and perhaps supringsingly nice and classy dinner restaurant. The breakfast was nice. The room we got faced the back and was a bit dated and gloomy.

Just retired from a couple day "getaway". We stayed at Sotto Mayor for the convenience of an apartment with cooking facilities. Our room was large, the bed was huge and the service was wonderful. They cleaned our room everyday, changed the bed clothes, new towels, etc. We didn't expect this type of service, but appreciated it! The pool was sparkling... More

This hotel is immaculately clean; sheets and towels were changed everyday. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast was very good. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel was really excellent value for money. We would stay here again. The only possible improvements we could think of are: that it would be good to have free wi-fi, rather... More

THE BEST HOTEL OF THE CITY! Very very good, everything is new! Good remodeling of everything. The staff is really helpful and treated us very well. Cold water and welcome fruits were a nice touch to help us deal with the heat of the great Portuguese summer. The staff even charged me less than I expected on the end of... More

I stayed in this Hotel for 1 night and i liked it: i was given a small apartment in the groundfloor, with a balcony to the swimming pool - as it was May, it was quiet and the pool was under renovation, i guess. The apartment is not really up to date, but it was comfortable and quite clean: wood-walls,... More
