“Very nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The hotel had very cheap rates for the rooms so it was a nice surprise. The swimming pool was small, but very clean and quiet, it closes at 8pm. The breakfast was included and it was a nice buffet, coffee, tea and juice, cereals, breads with spreads and cold meats, cheese, fruit, etc. The room came with TV, mini toiletries, fridge, a “portable” air conditioning machine (we didn’t use it), and a balcony overlooking the beach, soundproofing is nonexistent. No hairdryer provided. You can walk to the local bars, restaurants, beach, and supermarkets.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The room was clean and we had a very nice balcony as well. The soundproofing is nonexistent, so when the toddler 2 floors below us woke at 7:30, so did we. Breakfast was quite all right, although it could get quite crowded since the layout/logistics weren't the best.
There is a large sign on the top of the hotel, but it's not lit, so if you arrive at night, it's not easy to spot. The staff was very nice and helpful. The pool area was enjoyable as well, when we'd had enough of the sand at the beach.

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay here, especially for the price! Rooms cleaned daily, hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel and destination!
I also think that the pictures do not do the beach justice, as it is very nice.

Wonderful Hotel, extremely clean and welcoming, rooms are very spacious and clean, pool very nice and extremely clean. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included normal continental food but lots of it and all extremely fresh and tasty. Definitely go back again.

This hotel was excellent for the price we paid. Breakfast very basic but enough to fill you up in the morning. Staff very friendly and lovely pool. Burgau beach hotel is in an excellent position overlooking the beautiful bay.

Room Tip: Excellent value for money

We just returned from the Hotel Burgau, and were happily surprised. The hotel was very clean, the beds were relatively comfortable and the staff were very helpful and gave us great tips to make for a fantastic vacation. I would recommend having rental car if you are in this area, as it is a bit remote, and there is so much to see in the area that an automobile simply enhances the adventure. The cliff walk toward Luc is beautiful and a great way to start a morning.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Praia do Burgau and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the continental breakfast was good and the hotel is in a great location, close to the beach and the cliff walk to Luz. There are some great, and safe, running routes through beautiful countryside also. There's free WiFi in the lobby, which can be picked up in the breakfast area also. The staff made some great recommendations for restaurants, including a trip to a very reasonable and good restaurant in the nearby village of Espiche, where you can cook your own meat on a hot stone. The atmosphere in the hotel was relaxed and friendly. There were several good restaurants in Burgau itself and it was great to watch the fishermen rowing in in their little boats every evening with their catch. Burgau is off the beaten track, so it was never overcrowded. A truly lovely place.
