Just returned from a 10 night half board stay. Hotel location lovely, rooms spacious, food very disappointing! Staff embarrassed to serve the evening meal. Avoid booking half board as the menu is set for those staying half board and terrible as people were walking out of the restaurant. I hate complaining but feel I should on this occasion. On a...

Me and my partner booked a 4 night stay at the Hotel Oriental to celebrate my birthday and had a lovely stay. The hotel rooms themselves could do with a little TLC. I had read that they had recently been refurbished, but I don't believe all the hotel rooms were included in this refurb, if there was one. Our ensuite... More

Surrounded by boring tower blocks this little hotel is like an oasis of calm. A little worn in places but charming, like one can imagine a Moorish palace to be The hotel has a policy of no noise after 10pm which was admirable. However, when a large group of loud mouthed BRITS took over the bar one night it was... More

This hotel has lovely views over the beach. The sun area and the pool are beautiful. The breakfast was fairly standard with terrible coffee. I had an omelette in the bar and that was pretty good. the staff are the thing that makes this hotel stand out. The rooms are very good and spacious. The only thing lacking was milk... More

Stayed here last January. Very nice and clean room, cleaned on a daily basis. The breakfast was good and sufficient. The staff were friendly and helpful. The access to the beach is by the pool which is fantastic. This hotel is in a perfect location with many restaurants and a lovely promenade. As usual when we travel to Algarve, we... More

It's beautiful!!! We was upgraded as soon as we walking in by a very charming welcome, I think his name was Paulo, not sure, he couldn't have been more welcoming. The breakfast was outstanding and our bedroom overlooked an amazing sea views. I loved it!!!!!! Really didn't want to leave. Paulo suggested staying in for the evening meal and it... More

Stayed here last August. Rooms very nice, very clean. We were B&B and the breakfasts were standard but good enough. Pool area was very quiet with enough beds and the private walkway to the beach, although steep, was easy enough. Fantastic beach. Will definitely return.

We enjoy Portugal and this refurbished hotel is the tops. Next to the beach and overlooking the pier this medium sized hotel provides most of the comforts of its larger neighbours. It scores by providing a competitive priced menu with availability throughout most of the day. Our room had a view of the expansive beach and the dining room must... More
