As with many "modern" hotels, things are different. There is no shower curtain (water sprays on the floor), lights go on and off via the room card key, and there is no Wi fi in the rooms, only the lounge. There really isn't a good view, but it's very close to the beach and little shops. The bed is comfortable,... More

Good parking below hotel, very nice reception, funky bright turquoise room with balcony affording an ocean view (if you stick your neck out), clean, comfortable, a little small (but how much time will you spend here), good breakfast, and 2 blocks from the beach. There's a fine heated pool on the roof shielded from the ocean breezes (quite cool in... More

This hotel is clean and modern. The room was large and clean. Stayed one night. I only had breakfast in the hotel and it was a buffet. They also brought bacon and scrambled eggs to the table. Breakfast was from 8, but they served us at 7:30 as we needed to leave to get back to Lisbon. So they do... More

First impressions of Nazare is that it is a bit brash, but it grows on you. The hotel is 100 metres side on to the beach up a main street. Two minutes to the sand. Nazare takes a little getting used to....it has a little too much tat but there is something charming and welcoming about it. Restaurants are predominantly... More

Just the worst place I've ever stayed. If you like to stay in a room that looks like its set up for spring break. Meaning plastic sheets, no furniture. Terrible view. The staff were the worst. Rude, unhelpful, snotty.

I was really disappointed with my stay here. My husband and I arrived, planning to stay two nights. Never having been to Nazare we did have a few questions from the staff that we assumed a hotel would be happy to answer. The lady at the desk seemed annoyed by us asking where to go for dinner and asking her... More

I have been twice in this hotel: the first time I had an orange room which I didn't like very much, the second time I had a turquoise room which suited me better. If orange is not your colour, it's a real torture to be in an orange room, as it makes restless. I didn't know that they also had... More

Pleasant surprise to find a thoroughly modern ,clean hotel in a small seaside town. Excellent value for the money with free parking under the hotel. Located one block from the seaside beach and in the midst of the old town complete with covered food market where local women in native dress come for their daily shopping. Would recommend it for...
