The location of Praia do Sol is just great. It is close to the centre and it's not even a 5 minutes walk to the long, sandy beach. The restaurants in the area are very good. The Italian restaurant was one of the highlights of our stay :) There is a little ice-cream shop owned by a man which is... More

We were leaving Porto, Portugal and wanted to go to Lisbon. We couldn't believe how costly the hotels were in Lisbon so after a great deal of research we found Hotel Praia Do Sol. We thought it was actually in Lisboa, but upon arrival by train to Lisboa, we discovered it was 1 1/2 hrs away by train and bus.... More

This is a nice small hotel in a privileged location.... rua dos pescadores is the main street in costa da caparica. The Rooms are simple and humble, there is no fancy or modern looks but they are clean. The beds are not so good as the mattresses kinda sink, not recommended if you have back pains but i'm sure if...

We selected Praia do Sol for its price & location. We were looking for a place outside Lisbon to stop when travelling from Algarve to Madrid. Our expectations were clean & reasonable priced and I cannot say it failed us. As far as other features - very average. Worth noting is the service - the lady in the reception spoke... More

Basic clean hotel with friendly cheerful staff. The location is about five minutes walk from the beach and about the same the other way to a small charming square. Our room was quite small and the view was not the best we have ever had but for a cheap break away is was ok. The one bad point without any... More

A clean and basic hotel on the pedestrian street in Costa da Caparica, 2minutes from the beach. The area is nice and busy. There are a lot of shops and restaurants and people. It feels safe around the clock too. We stayed here last summer and came back again this summer. We are still very happy with the location, the... More

Not a nice area, rats running around at night as well as a few drunks here and there. The room was cramped, dull, old and smelly (cigarettes). The towels were old, worn and frayed. The toilet rocked when sat on. The price advertised at the hotel for bed and breakfast was the same price that we paid for bed only... More

The room was nice and was cleaned to a good standard every day. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. They went out of their way to help us get around. The breakfast was average but not bad for the money. The hotel is only two minutes walk from the beach. Which is nice and sandy but the water... More
