“Weekend in Algarve...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I went to Algarve in July 2013, along with my family, and booked a room in Montechoro Sol Hotel.

For a small price we had breakfast.

The room is small, however, we need it only to sleep, nothing else.

There's a balcony in each room, no lcd tv, only crt (oldest ones)

Internet signal in the rooms, is very weak, however, we had a FON hotspot nearby, glad i'm a subscriber to the service.

Breakfast if nice.

There are two swimming pool, one indoor, and one outdoor, i tried them both... very pleasant.

About the location, well, there isn't any attraction nearby, however, there are major points, like shopping mall next to the hotel, as well as the well know beach "praia da rocha".

Seems that the employers are quite nice, everyone is at full disposal.

There is also air conditioning, which in my case, it didn't work, even after i was told to close the window to allow it to work. Didn't work either.

In resume,

The Good:
:
Price, Employers, Pool.


The Bad:

CRT Tv, noisy rooms.



If you are looking for a cheap hotel, with everage conditions, and your only concearn is "Bed and Breakfast", then, you will go to the right place, otherwise, this is not a switable choice.

For me, i enjoyed very much, and thank you for a pleasant stay.

We were in Portimao in May 2012. I and my friend booked 'room+breakfast' apartment. We had a balcony, bedroom and bathroom. The room was clean and light. We had a TV, an air con, a safe. There was good cleaning and support from staff. For us, it was a nice apartment, as We were only staying overnight there and had breakfast. No one bothered us. Near the hotel there is plenty of parking place.
Mirachoro Sol - is good choose if you have a car and wouldn't plan to spend time sitting in the room)))
Receptionists were very useful and kind. Good memories!

Booked this Hotel knowing that it was "Away from Beaches" but review said a coutesy bus runs 3-4 times a day 6xdays a week. so was happy with this, however, on arrival the receptionist looked confused when we enquired the times & asked us to enquire again the following day, when we did so we were informed that there was no such service!! Spent 45mins walking alongside dual carridgeway to beach & Back twice a day....If you have a family this hotel will not work for you if its not re-enstated. Whilst on the negitives, Breakfast was almost inedible! Having got the moans out of the way, the staff were brilliant, Location not too bad for town centre, Rooms a little tired, but I guess that that is reflected in the price, Would I go back?.......Oh yes!!

We went together with my family. The hotel itself was away both from the centre of Portimao as well as from the beach. The only good thing was that there was a free hotel mini bus 3 times a day going to the beach. The hotel equippment was worn, the swimming pool was dirty. The price that we paid haven't been low. I would not recommend it.

We have stayed at this hotel two years running now. It's a lovely hotel, quiet, and such good value. If you want to be right in the thick of the bar/nightlife culture of Portimao, then this isn't the place for you. It's away from the main tourist area, but all the better for it. The staff all speak excellent English and are so friendly, and helpful. The rooms are large and clean, with a big balcony. No frills to this hotel - although there are two pools, breakfast is good, and there is wifi in the lobby - but we don't go on holiday to stay in the hotel all day. It's a nice stroll down to the harbour area, where there's plenty of restaurants, and a complimentary bus to Praia de Rocha if you want the beach and the nightlife. But if a relaxing holiday is what you are after, then I thoroughly recommend this hotel.
