“DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I wouldn't usually go on to complain about anywhere but this hotel was so bad my partner and I thought we should go on here to warn people not to go here!!!

Awful staff/service- staff were so miserable and unhelpful- management seemed the worst of bad bunch!!!

Awful breakfast- hard coissants, undrinkable coffee and hardly anything else!!!

Room- no kettle, "double room" was two single beds pushed together! Gave us two tiny bars soap at start and even though cleaners come in each day we had no soap last 3 days!! Never enough hot water- Luke-warm showers at best!

Lagos however is a great place to holiday- just stay somewhere else!!!!!!!

I booked this hotel quite close to the departure date at a very good price for bed and breakfast. As usual there was some trepidation after reading some reviews on here. Thankfully the fears were unfounded; the hotel was in a great location, was clean and the breakfast was plentiful if a little repetitive.
It was an easy stroll to a number of beautiful beaches, or into the walled old town, where bars and restaurants were situated.
A couple of negatives; our room was next to the laundry room so it was noisy after 8 in the morning, and the hotel could do with some TLC (especially outside where a car had knocked down a portion of the wall!). WiFi was free which was a bonus and the staff were usually friendly and helpful.
If your planning a stay in Lagosand you wants base to stay, this hotel is ideal.

The Hotel is very good located close to center, workers are very friendly, rooms are clean and big enough for a relaxing holiday with balcon. it is a 3 star hotel, but breakfast is awful. it is a general problem in portugal, mostly breakfast is not what we waited for. Internet is only working at lobby and free. from the hotel you can easly go to the famous beach Don Ana. I recommend the hotel coz of it"s cheap price but only for 2-3 days.

just got back from a great holiday, This hotel was cheap, cant fault the staff and couldnt find any faults with the cleaning. great location for us there was a short walk to town and a quiet beach just down the road. As me and my boyfriend havnt traveled abroad much the one thing i wish i had know was how cold it can get in the night! if your planning on walking from this hotel to the town you will need a warm jumper.

Having stayed at the Montemar a couple of times before I decided to book a top floor room with balcony. Good view, clean and tidy, plenty of towels, sufficient breakfast, allowed me to park under hotel for free (car park very steep and narrow). Pleasant staff on reception and room cleaning. Great price and close to the town centre. This is an ideal hotel if you are going to be out and about all day visiting the area.

Room Tip: Any rain on the glass roof is noisy in top froor rooms.

This hotel is cheap 86E for two night - 3 in one room - so we din't expect any frills but actually it proved quite comfortable and clean. Breakfast down stairs was adequate - obviously not a cooked option for that price but fruit, yoghurt, cheese meat -usual continental. They allowed us to go dining room 5 minutes early at 7.55am as we had a bus to catch to Faro at 8.30am.
It was quite a long way to walk with cases from the bus station so we took a taxi but not really that far out and easy to walk into town for an evening meal.
We went to Sagres by bus (day trip) which was very interesting.
Hotel wasn't full so rooms quiet . Staff helpful

The hotel is very basic and I would not call it a B&B or a 3 star - this is a 2 star hotel, breakfast is offered but very minimal. The location is very good, close to beach and town centre. The rooms are basic but pretty descent and clean. The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels every day. This is an ideal hotel if your looking for a base to explore surrounding areas including Lagos.
