“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We took a tip from a previous review and requested a room with a view over the town. Our balcony afforded us the most beautiful view of the 13th century castle and cathedral. Room was clean and comfortable. The staff are polite, professional and helpful. We were B&B and enjoyed the continental buffet. We found the draught beer from the pool side bar a bit pricey a 3.5 Euros however a bottle can be had for 2 (until we drank them all!). This hotel is perfect for families and couples; my only minor quibble is the poolside could have been tidier from leaves and twigs etc. A nice hotel that I would be happy to return to.

Room Tip: Ask for a view over the town.

This hotel offers superb value.

It is ideally located for visiting anywhere in the Algarve with easy access to motorways and main roads (but not too close). We stayed 5 nights in early August and travelled the length of the Algarve visiting most of the main towns and beauty spots. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, breakfast is good, staff are very polite and it offered easy parking even for our campervan. Get a room at the back of the hotel as the views over Silves towards the old moorish fort and the church are just stunning. There were quite a lot of coach parties staying just the one night but this was not a problem and the hotel was always peaceful. The pool is excellent and was never overly busy even at the busiest time of the year with sunbeds readily available. Silves town is a short walk with plenty of restaurants and bars giving adequate choice. The set menu meals based around sardines or chicken piri piri are excellent value at around 10 euros. Great place for families or mature couples.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have superb views over Silves town and the surrounding countryside.

The Manager and the staff are very friendly and offer good service.They make you feel welcome. The hotel is a great place to relax. Nice swimming pool. The view over Silves and the sunset from the main terrace are stunning.

We stayed here last year and I wrote my review on 3/8/12 everything I wrote still stands, it is a good hotel for a short stay and a good base to explore western Algarve and we will be staying again next year.

We stayed at the hotel for a a few days in June. The hotel is a little dated but very clean and the staff helpful and friendly. Views from our room were amazing great view of the castle, lovely to see it lit up at night. Would definitely stay again. Great value for money.

We stayed at this hotel many years just for one night and noticed it in a really cheap package deal with Purple Travel so decided to return. We got a great deal which included flight and hotel. We decided to spend the first night in Faro so booked a hotel independently. We travelled to Silves by bus (mistake, should have gone by train) and had just a few minutes walk to the hotel. Our room was really amazing for the price we paid. It was spacious with a huge terrace complete with sun loungers. It had a beautiful view of the castle. The fittings and decoration are dated but for what we paid we have no complaints. We were on a bed and breakfast deal which was fine, just the usual bread, cheese, ham etc. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel nor did many other guests. We only saw one other couple eating in the hotel restaurant in the evening.
The hotel is in a great position for exploring Silves. It takes ten minutes to walk across a bridge into town where there are lots of bars restaurants and shops.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights at the hotel. It was quiet and very clean with a calm atmosphere. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ask for castle view.

This hotel is not really in Silves itself, but rather on a strip of land between the narrow Arade River and Highway N124. It's easy to find if you're driving, but not convenient if you're traveling by bus. The town is up on a hill on the other side of the river. The main reason for staying at this hotel is the terrific view it has of Silves and its castle (lit up at night). Be aware, however, that only the rooms facing the town have this view. The rooms facing the other way, away from the town, have a view of the parking lot and of the highway. The hotel is built on a slope, so the lobby, at street level on the highway side, is actually the third floor. The rooms on the third floor and facing the town are the best ones because they have terrace balconies. The view from the fourth floor rooms is as good, but you get it from your window, not from a terrace.

Room Tip: See my review above. You can't tell by the room number which rooms face the town because each si...
