We stayed at this hotel in November with some trepidation having seen some of the other reviews. However, it is one of the best value for money places we have ever stayed. I will say that if you want luxury and vast open spaces and bright spacious foyers etc. look elsewhere. The hotel is one of three next to each... More

The Dorisol Bugenville could be done with a serious overhaul. The dinning room roof tiles leave a lot to be desired lots of water stains from leaks. The rooms require an upgrade, some of the floor panels moved, the roof on the balcony had around 1.5 mtr section of paint bubbled off. Externally the railings on the balconies have rusted... More

Hotel tired as per previous reviews - but clean - we only paid just under 200 pounds each for bed and breakfast so can't moan - breakfast repetitive but plenty of choice - lots of restaurants nearby and all reasonably priced - would definitely stay here again - the location was just right

We have stayed at one of the sister hotels many times before but this time we decided to stay here instead, a bit further downhill than Mimosa and Estrelícia. The room was as expected, shower and kitchenette fully working and the breakfast buffet had a decent choice of all we needed. Given the price per night, we never expected more... More

Me and my friend liked the room, the pool outside and inside. Should been wifi in the room, but you have to go down to the living room. Great location, because you have restaurants and shopping center near by.
