Visited here last week for 2 nights. Have used this hotel before and find it acceptable for a couple of nights B & B, however I would have to say that now it is looking a little tired and could do with some redecorating. Also the pool area needs a facelift. Pool is very clean, but the astroturf does nothing... More

Is away from downtown and in holiday seasons is difficult to get seats in the shuttle. We´ve enjoyed our stay, our room had an excellent view and a small kitchen where we can prepare light dinners. It´s excellent when you´re travelling with kids. The housekeeping was excellent, but the reception staff not so friendly and helpful.

Holiday booked at the last minute and after reading previous reviews. We arrived early so our room was not ready but not a problem went and got milk from the mini supermarket across the road and were given Maderia wine and honey cake to try the first free samples of many. Room was on the 8th floor with great sea... More

First impressions should not always count. My first impression was of a rather sterile and quite dingy building. Floors are black and walls are tiled, lighting during the day makes the reception area a bit forbidding (if I was partially sighted I would be concerned about the stairs from the lobby to the first floor.) Having said all that I... More

The hotel is quite nice. The warm indoor pool was really good, since we visited in january. The apartment was clean and generally in good condition, although the joints in the tiles was a bit black. Other that that it was fine. We liked the kitchenniche and the oceanview. We stayed at the hotel with a lot of elderly people,... More

I booked this hotel on a late deal, it was a fantastic price for two of my children and I. After booking I read some pretty depressing reviews and was a little anxious about the arrival! However I was pleasantly surprised. It's a good hotel, especially for the cost! The rooms are spacious and fit up to 3 people in... More

Hotel is in a good location for restaurants and supermarkets, the Pingo Doce being the best, several of these around within walking distance, the one at the forum shopping centre at Ajuda would be my recommendation The staff on reception are excellent and will help you out if they can. Hotel lobby is basic and in need of an update.... More

Recently arrived back from the Dorisol Buganvilia, we booked the holiday at short notice and failed to notice that it had no poolside bar. Coffee and tea could be purchased from a vending machine situated on the ground floor along with cans of coke and ice creams, unfortunately the coke was empty and not refilled during our stay. A small... More
