Nice spaceous rooms Spaceous and clean bathroom Friendly staff Good quality of restaurant/bar (in Portugal they bring appetizers = couvert without you requesting it but they charge about 3€/person) Many sitting areas to relax mostly with sea view

We have visited your hotel repeatedly since 2010, and it has kept getting better. After the recent modernisation it really is a straight 4-star instead of the advetised 3-stars. The rooms, the cuisine, the views and the staff's friendliness are examplary. We will recommend this place to more People.

Seeside hotel with the best spot, view, staff & a new renovated boring meat cafe. The outside looks like heaven - But the inside is like a hospital! Yet it might help with some new basket furnitures, palm tree & a good stylist. Bonne Chance!! Coffe & Cafe was okey..

At some point this was probably a nice hotel. Those days are long gone. It's run down, overpriced but they don't seem to realize it. They have an arrogance among the staff that seems to be indicative of a more "exclusive" time. The beach is nice, and the pool is seasonal.

Lovely hotel. Amazing location, right on the sea front, with an amazing outdoor pool. Watching the tide come in and out and the waves splash into the pool was entertainment in itself. The staff were kind, helpful, and multilingual.; nothing too much trouble. The breakfast excellent and very good value, as was the restaurant and cafe / bar. The family...

A basic room nice view of the Atlantic but nothing too special, reasonable rates obtained by booking well in advance, close by a few restaurants. The breakfast was good and the rooms clean, it may be quite hot in summer as rooms face directly west

Not sure an architect was involved in the design of this hotel. It has a huge pool that is difficult to access directly from the hotel. Not a cent has been spent on the building or the rooms ( except for maybe reception ) since opening and it shows . 3 star rating is being kind. Hotels do not appear...

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Hotel Arribas. Amazing location, very comfortable room. We had a superior room with balcony overlooking the sea. It is an ideal location for a beach holiday but also for visiting Sintra which is close by.

We were recommended to go there by Claudia from My Vintage Wedding as we were there as guests. It was great. Newly refurbished. Nothing is to much trouble. Great staff. Reception, resturant and house keeping staff excellent. 2 mornings we had extra people but all accommodated without fuss for an extra charge. Clean, modern and comfortable rooms. Beds really comfy,...
