I personally disagreed with the top reviews this location got, maybe it's based on the price that everyone booked. However, I booked mine through a travel flight and hotel package so I can't comment on value for price. However, the hotel room was old and the A/C had to be turned on to the maximum to feel slightly cooler in... More

Really nice 3* hotel in Praia de Rocha. Excellently placed right near the beach, so convenient for restaurants shops etc. Large comfortable, clean rooms. Only given 4 stars because the breakfast was poor. 16 of us stayed on this trip & we all thought that Overall it was good value.

We stayed at this hotel middle of May for 10 days, what an amazing hotel, with absolutely fantastic staff!! When we booked this hotel through teletext holidays, we requested a sea view room, when we arrived, were were told that our room was not sea view, we were a bit disappointed, but the receptionist told us we should speak to...

You get what you pay for, this hotel was pretty cheap but we felt it was a good deal. No frills but the bedroom was a good size and had everything we needed. It was clean and we had nice toiletries in bathroom. We were not there in high season so it was pretty quiet at night. Breakfast OK. The... More

Saying that , the room was clean, had a free electronic safe, fridge,shower and toiletries nice soft towels. wifi a bit hit and miss in the... More

What an excellent time we had at Santa Catarina! In March (the off season), the prices are unbeatable, parking is easy, breakfast is plentiful, views are wonderful, and the staff is extremely accommodating and helpful. It's chilly at night, but still beach weather during the day! And there's plenty to do at night. March is a great time to visit,... More

My first impression about the hotel was not good - looked old with the dark marble in the hall. However, I was convinced by my friend to give it a chance as the price was actually a bargain of 40 euro/night. Indeed, it is a good place! Perfect location (Praia da Rocha), very clean and with a nice staff -... More

Overall fine, the customer service focus I found laid back but any issues got resolved promptly. I had a few with my room but these were dealt with very well. All staff were friendly. Breakfast was ok but became a bit repetitive with pretty much the same on offer every day. In the main it's continental but they did offer... More
