Colina Do Mar is ideally situated if you don't walk a long walk to either beach or shops/restaurants etc. We were booked into a room on the 4th floor which was directly under the rooftop pool. Although not a problem in March (other than the continuous drone of the filter overhead), I could foresee it being quite noisy in busier months.
There were some new buildings being worked on across the road but other than being a little unsightly (huge crane), we were not disturbed by any noisy building works.
Our room smelt quite damp and fusty but was clean on arrival & covered basic needs. There were 2 large single beds pushed together, a small fridge, dressing table, 1 wicker chair, 2 large built in wardrobes (with a safe inside 1) and en-suite bathroom with bath and shower head. The bathroom was very clean
The hotel had us a their guests, we in turn had tiny little ants...... and quite a few of them, especially in the wardrobe with the safe in it! On the shelf & in the drawers. I felt the need to check the bed before I hopped in just to make sure I hadn't extra company!
A buffet breakfast sered its purpose to fuel up for the morning.....toast, bread rolls, ham, cheese, cereal, yoghurts, fruit juice, oh and cold hard boiled eggs.
Rooms were cleaned daily, beds made and towels changed.
The TV room and bar were not opened during our stay despite requests by other guests, being told they would remain closed as the season hadn't properly started.
It is a very cheap place to stay so you get what you pay for!
Upside to the hotel is its convenience to the beach and main square of the old town, both of which can be reached within 5 mins or so.
If you want a convenient, basic, cheap hotel to stay - this could be it but personally wouldn't stay here again.
