This was our first visit to this hotel & we paid the extra for a sea view room. I emailed them and requested a high floor room & our 5th floor sea view room was excellent. Considering they have to cater for many nationalities with different tastes we found the food very good. All the staff we came into contact with were friendly & helpful. The room and all areas were cleaned to a high standard. It may be a problem to some but having to pay for a room safe gave us peace of mind to know our things were secure.
There is a free to use computer on the 1st floor with internet. As a repeat visitor to Porto Bay hotels wifi is available at half price, but if you don't wish to pay you can visit local bars & cafes where free wifi is on offer, plus drinks are much cheaper than the hotel. We shall definitely return.

Room Tip: Paying extra for a sea view is well worth doing & if you can get a high floor even better .

My new husband and I enjoyed our stay at this resort hotel. However, it is much more geared towards tourists and feels less authentic than other hotels in Portugal. Overall, the staff was friendly but we did detect some animosity from one of the pool side servers. We loved our room but wish we would have chosen an ocean view (although it was much more expensive). Also, the hotel seemed to charge their guests for every little thing. The location of the hotel is great and the view is beautiful. If you have the money and are just looking for a place to relax and get some sun this is perfect for you. If you are looking to immerse yourself in the culture you are better off staying at one of the more historic towns.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view if you are willing to spend the extra money

When you book in,if you receive room 121 dismiss without viewing,very,very dark and dismal,no natural light whatsoever,problem is a MASSIVE tree in front of the balcony,within touching distance,ergo no view,no natural light.Plus 2 power point do not work,the TV has a horrible green tramline down the centre.On the plus side the shower is fantastic and the bed is really comfy.Oh! and the bathroom has no extractor fan working.The food is very canteen,we booked b/b however 1st night being a little travelworn we decided to eat in and pay E22 each,oh dear what a mistake-the meat,overdone and dry.the vegetables,overdone and insipid.The breakfast was very boring,highlight was freshly squeezed orange juice mid week.It does not really get better,while the poolside was very clean and tidy,the sunbeds on the lawn and the decking where infact filthy and very shoddy,We have visited the Algarve every year since 1987 and have never ever,ever experienced a poor hotel until NOW,why we decided to change hotel is lost in the eons of time,but.what a mistake!!.As an afterthought-the staff are quite poor--(except for the cleaning staff) if you really want a fabulous holiday book into 1 of the 2 Riu directly opposite,lovely resort with fabulous beaches and local restaurants but give this place a miss.

Thank you very much for your review. It was given upon arrival a similar room at the 3rd floor (358) but was refused, we do not understand why you decided to stay at the 121 after expressing towards reception your disapointment with the view and better solution found. Both upgraded rooms from standard land view to superior land view rooms. Best regards. Fernando Reis Filipe

Just returned from a wonderful four day break with my husband and two daughters to celebrate my 60th birthday. This is our 3rd visit and the hotel gets better each time. The staff are really friendly and helpful and all areas are exceptionally clean. The hotel promotes a calm and peaceful atmosphere just right for a relaxing break. My thanks to the manager for sorting our rooms out and providing us with a lovely family room. Can't wait to return!

Our 2nd visit to the hotel was even better this time.Fillipe on reception remembered us from last year and we were given the same room on 3rd floor nice quiet location excellent maid service.Breakfast was lovely plenty of choice cava everyday and some extra choices on some days fresh milk shakes, smoothies ,Pancakes ,fresh orange,cheese selection. so you will never go hungry at breakfast & no tea/coffe machines fresh coffee hot milk & water from the waiters who are all very helpfully.Cocktail evening for returning guests, also a nice touch,the hotel manager & staff are there and chat to all the guests personally. The grounds of the hotel are amazing with lovely views and plenty of quiet spaces.A very clean & well run hotel which is a credit to ALL the staff.
Thank you for a wonderfull holiday.We will return in 2015 already booked hols for next year.

Room Tip: 3rd floor or higher email hotel with your request
