You could not get a better location than the Carvoeiro Sol hotel. Right beside the beach and the square. Bars and restaurants are a stones throw away. The hotel and rooms are quite dated but clean. The beds were comfy and were cleaned every day with towel changes. Our room was on the 1st floor facing the taxi rank and we were not disturbed by noise. The noisiest thing about the room was the noisy AC unit. This is probably because it is very old! The hairdryer in the bathroom was also ancient and heated up extremely. I had to be careful of my hands. Some staff were lovely but some were very frosty. We did not eat here so can't comment on the food. The hotel is perfect for a base but it is not luxurious. Would stay again.

Positives- Hotel is in a great location and central for everything however could be doing with a bit of modernisation.
Room was fine, beds were comfy enough, linen was clean and towels were changed daily. Room also had a small fridge and air conditioning which was an unexpected bonus. Our room was also one floor up and faced the taxi rank but wasn't too noisy, although balcony extremely small and not able to put chair on it. You are able to obtain a lock for safety deposit box in the room, for a €20 deposit. Bathroom was nice and had bottles of shampoo/conditioner/hand soap for use. Hairdryer also in room and plenty storage available.
Negatives were the pool area, clean enough and bar/snack area, open from 12-6 however whatever time of day you go out, people have left towels on loungers so there is no-where to sit etc. Only 26 loungers approx, not nearly enough!! Similar case with sun umbrella's....:Reception staff are a tad frosty....and no pool towels available !!

Stayed for 1 week, great location near the beach & in the middle of the village. Nice breakfast, nice helpful staff, pool area ok. Room a little dated but clean. Comfy beds clean towels, little fridge in the room. Stayed in a side room with a big terrace when you stepped onto it but there was nothing on it. It could be great with a bit of trellis dividing it up, a table & umbrella plants in a pot, a little rack to dry your stuff on,some of the nice pottery butterflies etc they sell in the local shops. Maybe you were not supposed to use it but such a shame to waste a good space. Would return as we love Carvoeiro & have been lots of times staying in different accomodations. This place could be a little goldmine just needs a little bit of TLC.

This is our second time to this hotel. This time for my husbands 60th birthday. Like we'd never been away. The concierge was the same man who was there last June. As remembered the hotel was exceptionally clean and service excellent. There is a swimming pool with small pool bar and loungers, although this year the loungers were taken up quickly but this wasn't a problem as we only used it once. The sea time round was too cold for me to go in but it was nice to paddle and laze on the beach. Upon arrival in Carvoeiro the taxi had to drop us off 500 metres from the centre as they had their black/white festival on (18th June), again not too big a deal as it wasn't that far and we only had couple of cases. The centre was heaving with people due to the festival. We dropped cases off and tried to have walk round but couldn't due to the amount of people, so decided to stay close to hotel. There was music on and different groups playing different types of music, it was very lively. We were told it finished about midnight, we didn't get to sleep until 5am! Our room was on the side and we could here everything. Again not moaning too much but if you want to miss this, check when the festival is on.
This year I have only couple of slight niggles, if you want good night sleep choose room either near pool or courtyard, the front and side are a little noisy, for some reason nosier this year and I had trouble sleeping. Other very small thing is shower/bath, not sure if extractor was working but the bathroom steamed up and the ceiling started to get a little moldy and paint peeling. For me though this is not enough to make a fuss over and would not stop us returning in the future

Room tip: If you need decent sleep do not pick rooms on the front or side. Ask for pool facing or court yard.
