“Wonderful location, friendly staff but with structural problems”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Wonderful location, in between the beautiful beaches of Arrifana and Monte Clérigo, quiet place with a lovely decoration.

The problem is the building is old, probably built in the 70's or 80's (worst construction ever in Portugal), so it has a lot of structural problems - humidity, lack of soundproofing, low ceilings, low quality materials.

They try to compensate it with the Morocco decor and a welcoming attitude - everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very nice and we had dinner as well, which was very good value.

We profited from a great discount on the price, so I would say overall it was good value. Not if you pay the normal rates, tough.

Dear friend! I usually accept most of conditions of Hotels, and with the help of previous reviews I can already be ready what to expect. This one I had very low expectations, but was only for one night stay, so I booked!
To be honest it was above expectations.
Nevertheless, I really did not like the smell of the room (it seemed that was closed and without breathing fresh air for a long time. Smell a lot humidity. I also had some fights with the mosquitoes (I killed 4 of then, but not enough, so I had some memories for few days after). The Air Conditioner was "a joke", it was blocked and nothing could make it work. TV in the room was a old one (15 inches) and requires special vision skills to read subtitles.
The place surroundings doesn´t have a lot to see, so you need wheels to move around. Arrifana beach is around 3 Km away and ready deserves a visit (one of the best in the world).
As a proposal if the hotel manager want´s to really improve quality please invest in some kind of mosquito protection (a ultrasonic protection cost less than 5 € a piece), change room TV´s for a bigger one (a LCD one 23 inches would not cost that much) and make sure that room cleaning opens windows for a while every day (it does not cost anything).
I really enjoy the swimming pool area, the general decoration of the hotel, parking and the breakfast (fresh bread and fruits were very good).
All the best for your trip and lets make some pressure on Hotel manager to improve quality with just a minor changes.

Room Tip: Good for a visit to Aljezur and surrounding beaches! request a room from opposite side from swimming...

just checked in with no reservation. Room and hotel was very clean, but would have been less damp if slept on under a tent.
Breakfast was awful ( apart from fresh melon), coffee cold, and milk sour -- yes sour.. I proved it !!
If you have no where to stay, then beggars can't be choosers, but won't be going back there again
