My husband and I were in Portugal for a total of 3 weeks. During that time we had the use of a rental car which allowed us to visit the country extensively and also gave us the opportunity to stay at 7 different hotels along the way. This was not one of our favorites. We stayed in room E2E...building E on the second floor in room 3.
Pros: Studio apartment was large and spacious especially since there was only 2 of us. Apartment was quite clean. Having a clothes washer and dishwasher in the apartment was a definite plus. Kitchen was large for an apartment and was well stocked with utensils, cups, glasses etc. Small balcony offered a partial view of the ocean which was marred by a view of a run down apartment complex. Fast wifi and close proximity to stores, restaurants and the beach.
Cons: The noisiest room with the thinnest walls ever!! While we only stayed for 2 nights....it was 2 nights with no sleep. The people above us had a child who liked to run back and forth across the room and who thought that other guests would also appreciate the sound of chairs being pushed and scrapped constantly across the floor. They also had late night guests that were loud and boisterous until 3:30 in the morning. The mattress was one of the worst that I have ever had the displeasure to sleep on.....it was not only hard.....it had steel coils poking through in many places....by the time we checked out...we had bruised hip bones from laying on our side and sore backs.....the sofa bed was more comfortable. It was nice that there was a clothes washer but there was no dryer....the clothes rack is useless on a cloudy day. Check in time was 4:00pm and Check out was at 10:00 a.m...(ridiculous in my opinion).
Overall I would not return. Initially I was wowed by how large the unit was but soon realized that the negatives outweighed the positives although I could see how larger families might like the spaciousness of the units, I for one need my sleep especially while vacationing and I was glad to leave and continue on to my next destination.
