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

The dorisol buganvilia is a nice hotel located a bit outside of the city centre, but easy accesible by car. Friendly staff helps you with your first steps in the hotel. Rooms are equipped with a kitchenette. Due to the affordable prices of restaurants, it's better to go to a restaurant. Free wifi available in the common rooms at groundfloor.... More

We went 2 to 9 June 2014. Very pleasant hotel, helpful staff. Full use of the other two hotels nearby including free Internet in the hotel Estrelicia next door. There is an indoor & an out door pool with free sunbeds. Though it was a bit too chilly to use the out door pool much when we went. There is... More

The hotel is one of three adjacent hotels, all Dorisol owned and we had the facilities of the other two to use; 3 pools (1 indoor), 2 restaurants, 2 bars, Jacuzzi, gym, tennis court games... More

Having read reviews before we went, we were unsure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised, the hotel could do with a bit of a refurb but as everyone else has said, the staff are very friendly and the hotel is spotless. The room was more than adequate and we had a balcony that had a sea view and overlooked... More

Agree with Hilary Jones that the hotel was conveniently placed for all local bars and restaurants and the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. However, didn't rate the breakfast as the sausages and bacon looked awful. Stayed on the 7th floor and the views were excellent. I would say good value for the money we paid.
