Hotel Carvoeiro Sol
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Carvoeiro
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Went to Carvoeiro to visit my friend for a long weekend, as we only intended to use the hotel to sleep, wash and change we were looking for something close to the centre and cheap. In terms of location this could not be any closer to the centre of the town or the beach. It took more time to walk down the stairs of the hotel than it did to walk to the beach. The only issue some may have with the location is the music from the square, there are a couple bar/restaurants right outside and can be busy until 1-2am. They are in no way as loud as what you would find on a normal 'strip'. The hotel itself is very clean but tired, the room was very clean however there was a lack of plug sockets and the tv was tiny with only 9 channels (2 English) There is AC available if required. The pool is quite small but again kept very clean. The breakfast is decent but not great and there is free WiFi around the reception/lobby area. All the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. For the price we paid we could have no complaints. In summary we will be going back to visit and will be staying there, however I would not recommend this a luxury place to spend a lot of time at.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are quieter than rooms with balconies on the road

A lovely little gem in a great town of Carvoeiro
Very clean and lovely helpfull staff.
One young girl never stopped she was everywhere pool attendent,changed the beds and watress in the breakfast room.
Yes does need a little TLC, the pool could do with a couple of plants just to breck up the white.
We had a room on the front,it was great to sit and listen to the music in the eveing,which did all finish at 11.30 ish,hardly any nosie only from a small bar across the way.can't hear it once your doors closed.
Would def. go again

Room Tip: Ask for one at the front 203 great view

Very good deal! For the low rates you get a lot. Rooms were clean, breakfast ok, 90% of the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Pro and Con at the same time is the location directly in the city center: it is very noisy until 11 pm if your lucky or up to 1 am or 3 am if there is a festival.

Visited this hotel for the last 2 years and its perfect for golfers and families alike. Excellent location right on the beach and close to all the bars and restaurants without being noisy at night. Staff are all very friendly (thank you to great receptionist who printed off my mates boarding pass) and a credit to the place.The hotel is perfectly clean rooms a little dated but great value for money. We normally stay early April but stayed at the end of April this year and that couple of weeks makes all the difference resort a lot more alive and the weather a lot better. See you again next year. Steve room 301 29/04/14 till 3/5/14

Room Tip: pool view rooms are away from any night time noise

I stayed here for 5 days the week before Easter and got a great price from Alpharooms. I found the staff to be charming and helpful. Although I was expecting a room with no balcony I was pleased to get one on the first floor facing the court yard. The room was perfectly fine with a (albeit old) tv on which you could only get Sky and CNN news in English. There was plenty of space and the beds a little hard - the bathroom had both a bath and powerful shower over the bath. Some shampoo, shower gel and handwash were provided in dispensers on the wall.
Breakfast - not the best coffee from a machine, fruit juice (concentrated - not squash as you get in some places), a choice of around 5 cereals which I didn't try, a selection of nice local breads, cheese, yogurt and fruit. There was also a hot selection and a toaster so I thought the selection was really good although not high end quality but for the price really good. The hotel was clean and I had no complaints - the staff were very friendly and welcoming - I would definitely stay there again and of course the location is perfect being a minute from the beach and right in the centre.

Room Tip: Obviously the sea view would be nice but you pay extra - I was happy overlooking the courtyard

I stayed here for two nights and the location is great. The hotel is situated on the beach and bar/restaurants. The hotel was very clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful. But as the title of the review indicates this hotel is all about the location.
