“Very relaxing time”

Stayed 5 days at Colina dos Mouros, and there's not a bad thing to say about it. Very clean, food very good, staff 5*, great view and perfect to have some quiet time!

We visited portugal for the first time back in march 2011 and i must say it was fab.
The hotel was basic (very hard beds)but a good base for the travelling we did that week, we were also fortunate to have had fantastic weather this week so we really got to see most of the island.
Looking to go again June this year.

Rather dated 3-star hotel located across the river from the main town - terrific views from room. Basic functional room, few frills, breakfast ok - no hot food or eggs. Public areas terrace & pool would be nice if freshened up.
Recommended only for the view (and the lack of alternatives in Silves)

We stayed for a week in September 2009, as it was end of season it was very quiet. We stayed on a B&B basis to enjoy a different place to eat each night, but found the town of Silves very quiet at night, no atmosphere at all. The hotel makes a good base for the tourist, big carpark, good food in the hotel, but no music and no atmosphere. They hold seminars for companies, and wedding receptions. Our room was at the side of the hotel with a large balcony and our own small garden overlooking the pool. Fado's had live music Saturday and Thursday, small and lively, a very good night with excellent food. A good tourist base but not meant for a holiday, would not stay there for a whole week again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with view of Castle which is floodlit at night.

To be honest it was a pleasant stay,you need to bear in mind this is the only hotel in Silves as all others are outside the town.The hotel was in off season and very quiet though I agree that when busy which it was one Sunday with a wedding that the noise coming through the ceiling in room 210 (which like a previous reviewer we were in) and those rooms along the same corridor could be a major issue, the chairs and tables on the balcony above squeak and rub and echo into the rooms. Its also worth noting there are no double beds in this hotel and they only offer singles pushed together which creates a 5 foot wide bed which you may or may not like, other points worth noting are if you like coffee I suggest you bring some instant granules as the machine in the breakfast buffet produces something which is a bit indescribable for a coffee lover,the shower gets 10 out of 10 and the bedroom was big and had an excellent view.they also offer a 20% of happy hour at the bar though you need to remind them to give you the discount everytime your served.we didn't eat in the hotel other than the breakfast.

Room Tip: do not get a room under the balcony outside the bar

Stayed a week this October . got room 210 – no noise from above and a great view from the balcony of Silves Castle and the rest of the town .
A short walk over the bridge takes you into the town centre with plenty of cafes and restaurants .Had dinner in the hotel the first night , not good , the only minus point of staying at this hotel !
The room and bathroom were spotless on arrival and kept that way every day by a very cheerful chambermaid .
There was a bit of noise some mornings coming from their conference suite but as this is the only hotel in Silves where else are the local organisations going to meet ? Loud and cheerful would be how I’d describe the locals , and very friendly .
All in all , a very pleasant stay and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it .

Room Tip: room 210 not below dining room and had goood view of Silves

I stayed in this place for four days during a business trip to the area. It's not a bad hotel but don't go expecting luxury. The rooms are pretty basic - simple bathrooms that are clean and functional but slightly tired - and the breakfast is plain and lacking in choice and quality ingredients. There is however a great view of the old town and it's only a short walk to the restaurants and bars in the area. The pool looked good but I never tried it out so can't comment. The staff were polite and helpful and on the whole it's not a bad choice but I would struggle to call my experience anything more than average due to the fairly basic nature of the rooms and the buffet breakfast.
