I stayed at Qunita Perestrello from Christmas Eve through to New Years Eve 2012. I stayed here a few years back and was pleased to see that the high standards had been maintained. The hotel was clean and well kept, staff friendly and helpful. It is a small hotel in a good location attracting a diverse nationality of guests. Breakfast had something that would meet most peoples taste from fresh fruit salad, breads, meats and cheeses, plus a hot breakfast. I personally didn't find the breakfast repetative as I varied my choice each day.
I loved sitting out on the terrace or by the pool reading or enjoying afternoon tea and dispite being on a main road the traffic wasn't an issue as the gardens are raised well above road level and sheltered.
The hotel's location I found to be ideal, turn left and it's a 15 minute walk to the City Centre, turn right and some 5 minutes from the commercial area with restaurants, shops and supermarket, and only 10 minutes from the lido/sea front. There is plenty of choice of places to eat in the area with prices to suit most budgets or you can eat at any of the sister hotels (shuttle service available). I didn't eat at any of the sister hotels so can't comment on the food or service but locally I had some excellent meals with a warm welcome and good service. There are some good restaurants in the Old Town (near the market area) which is some 25 minutes walk away.
If you are looking for a hotel with entertainment and activities, busy bars, a hustle and bustle night life, and a children's club then this is not the place for you.
I'm looking forward to going back.
