Lovely staff who so tried to be helpful. We prepaid for seven nights through an agency but left after one. Lovely view (we paid extra) from an OK room with a great balcony, although the harbour is sadly neglected as a place of interest (and note, there is no beach). The hotel was too remote for us as we weren't... More

Hotel is right on the harbour and has beautiful views. It was April when I visited and the hotel was very quiet so the pool area seems unattended and needed work - but staff were really lovely - I was upgraded in the room and had a very pleasant day trekking around the local hills and water front. It is... More

Our room with the ocean view was great. There was a nice breeze from the ocean, sometimes bordering on a much stronger wind. Breakfast was fine, if not elegant. There was a small refrigerator that we used. I don't know if the TV was old...I was there to see the island, not TV. If you are going to drive, reserve... More

This hotel is right on the water and has nice views. For the money it is a great choice, at least for a short stay. It's not much for extras in the room, a really old fashioned TV and no refrigerator. There is an area on the top floor that has wonderful 360 degree views of the area. We got... More

Stayed for one night. The hotel has a cute location, and good facilities. Only Negatives in the room was the 20 year old minimal tv and the dirty shower head. The breakfast though was terrible with really low quality products... Have breakfast somewhere else. Service was really nice.

A super hotel. make sure you get a room overlooking the harbour and the sea. The breakfast is really good and the staff are so helpful. The only drawback was that there was no eating facilities in the evening at the hotel.

Definitely worth the extra for a room with a sea view. Nice big room. Only negative comment would be that there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Whole hotel is very clean. Staff friendly. Good continental breakfast. Very quiet small town. We're just at the end of the season so there only a few restaurants still open within walking... More

The hotel is satisfactory, staff friendly particularly Ana (hope the pregnancy goes well) who provided useful information on the locale. Taxi driver Jose was a delight and showed us viewpoints. The boom boom music from cantinho should be banned as completely spoils the ambience of the area!! Room spoilt by daily bin refuse collection and too close to hotel entrance... More

Very nice professional staff. Room very clean yet a bit spartan. Excellent location in a nice town from which to explore the island. A few very good restaurants in town. And the price...quite inexpensive. Included breakfast is very good. Will not hesitate to stay here again. Most of staff speak enough English to be helpful.
