“A real find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We have stayed at this hotel two years running now. It's a lovely hotel, quiet, and such good value. If you want to be right in the thick of the bar/nightlife culture of Portimao, then this isn't the place for you. It's away from the main tourist area, but all the better for it. The staff all speak excellent English and are so friendly, and helpful. The rooms are large and clean, with a big balcony. No frills to this hotel - although there are two pools, breakfast is good, and there is wifi in the lobby - but we don't go on holiday to stay in the hotel all day. It's a nice stroll down to the harbour area, where there's plenty of restaurants, and a complimentary bus to Praia de Rocha if you want the beach and the nightlife. But if a relaxing holiday is what you are after, then I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Good for a cheapy holiday , have to walk 20 mins to port to eat etc although if you walk the opposite way there is a good shopping center with good food , breakfast which is included is OK but very repetitive and extremely basic , pool is OK but cold and desperately needs a refurb don't bother with indoor pool as also cold , rooms are nice and air-con v good . Don't expect too much.

Plus good selection of toasters etc.Very good restaurant nearby,but try the chicken takeaway across the road roast not fried chicken plus rice and chips ask for Frango (chicken) piripiri Finally a mention for the reception staff all fantastic especially Isobel, nothing to much trouble

not long been back from this hotel, good hotel very basic. rooms cleaned daily and rooms very clean, no bad comments to say on this hotel, could of done with a fridge not sure if can hire one.
would return again if needed
was a good 20-30 mins away from main strip which we walked 90% of the time they also offer free bus to main strip during the day to the beach
wasnt keen on the pool being round the corner from hotel and was fairly small but did the job - so went to the beach daily
would recommend to someone who wants a cheap place to stay
staff friendly,
did the same breakfast everyday and got bored of this after 5 days but still worth the money saved us buying breakfast and lunch

just returned from 2 weeks at mirachoro 2. very cheap deal from onthebeach.com. our room was very good the cleaners came in everyday to clean and make beds, towels changed 3 times a week the only thing that let it down from getting 10 out of 10 was that they didnt do any food ( due to it being there winter season)

Room Tip: south faceing gets sun in afternoon

Well what can i say we Picked up a late deal and we chose this hotel due to the fact that it had a indoor and outdoor pool due to daughter being a water baby 11 years old that she is.
On arrival wasn't to sure we had made the right decision. However once inside we where greeted by very friendly staff who pointed us in the right direction for a bite to eat seeing as we had arrived early ( early flight) before room was ready. After eating at local cafe which was excellent, returned to hotel and was give furter info re room, air con, free bus to beach inc time tables, shopping areas etc. Also a local resturant Quintinha which was aboslutly superb and very friendly staff. Continental breakfast was good and plenty of it. All in all a very pleasant stay. Staff were brilliant always happy to help

Room Tip: Clean. Beds at little hard

location: on foot rather far from Praia da Rocha. however they provide free buses, several per day, to and from Portimao and Rocha, but you need to make a reservation. it's better to have a car. taxi ride about 5 EUR. Quiet, no outside disturbances/noises (didn't hear any dogs, then again i'm a heavy sleeper). Parking is almost always full, it's a public parking, not hotel-owned (depends on your luck to get a free spot).
room: tv, air condition, clean, bathroom and linen as well. however, we could hear the neighbors through the door.
breakfast: varied enough for a few days but not for longer stays.
staff: friendly, polite, helpful. on check-in we had been given full info about the hotel, transportation etc.
the outside pool is really outside, you need to exit the hotel, take a left and walk 30-50 meters. to access it, you need a key, which comes in the same bundle with the room key.
they din't have a map of the area / town. only gave us a poorly xeroxed A4. better try the tourist office.
very good value for money. will stay next time.
stayed in July, traveled as a couple.
