Mercure Figueira da Foz
Ranked #5 of 17 Hotels in Figueira da Foz
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I enjoyed my one night stay here. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach (i.e. across the road from it). There is unpaid public parking right outside the hotel and paid public parking on the opposite side, the side by the beach. Trying to find a spot in the unpaid public parking in the summer time is next to impossible unless you happen to be very lucky. However, there are plenty of spots on the paid side. The hotel does not have parking.

The rooms are clean and tidy and look like they have been newly furbished. The hallways are out of date. Rooms that have an ocean view also include a balcony – it’s nice to sit out and watch the sunset. Complimentary and fast wi-fi that’s easy to access everywhere within the hotel was much appreciated.

The hotel breakfast was good as it offered plenty of choice although some of the hot items had a rather unappetizing appearance.

The actual main town is about a 30 min walk away and you have to venture inwards to get away from all the tourist shops. I stumbled upon a few excellent bakeries, cafes and small shops by veering into the small streets. I even stumbled upon a market – though I have seen much nicer markets in many other cities.

Aside from the beach, there wasn’t much else to this town. A day or two here is sufficient

Excellent location (across the road from the beach, good marina near by, plenty of restaurants walking distance). Very hospitable and friendly staff, quick and easy check in and out. Newly furbished rooms, very clean, ocean view balcony (I've had a free upgrade curtessy of hotel staff, as ocean view rooms were available). Great money value, affordable prices. Good breakfast. Good food at the restaurant, very good service. Good English spoken. Free Wi-Fi. Free parking available near-by. Rent-a-car facility walking distance. I stayed there twice, and will do again whenever I'm in the area.

Room Tip: I stayed at Mercure out of season (November and March) so I've got a free upgrade to ocean view...

This is an ancient hotel, where couples and maybe families used to go on glamour vacations for long time periods in this famous beach, Figueira da Foz. As time passed by, people changed habits and the hotel lost most of its glamour. However, the hotel has been remodeled, and we still can feel some of the beach glamour from the old days. It’s a cozy hotel, very comfortable, excellent prices, excellent breakfast and, most of all, excellent view over the beach and the sea. The staff was very professional. Maybe is not headed for for large families, since the rooms are not big, but we did well (two adults and two small children). This city might have lost most of its reputation but, staying in this hotel I can imagine what it might have been once.

If you - for some reason - find yourself in what appears to be a faded Figueira Da Foz, you will do well at the modern and nice Mercure. Ocean view balcony, good breakfast, public swimming pool next door (for some strange reason as COLD as the sea - are they maschocists?) 10 minutes walk to the sea cross a w-i-d-e beach right in front of the hotel. No hotel parking, but with a little luck you can park free in front of the hotel. Nice staff, professional approach. Clean and big rooms. Bar on the poor side - cocktails not a core competence. Follow the road to the right outside the hotel for a 5 minutes drive for a wonderful mountain view of the bay.
If I had to (!) go to Figueira again - I would be back at the Mercure. Sort of a compensation.

A lot of good things. A fairly sized room. Balcony with a sea view. Water cooker. Good AC, Hair dryer. Make up mirror. Fast free WiFi at the room. Good bed. Good breakfast included, Flat screen TV. Then the small things. Hangers are cheap, why there are not enough. There was lot of room for them. In the bathroom we had two disposable cheapest kind of "glass". We had the same for 6 days with tooth paste stains. We had also one disposable plastic teaspoon by the water cooker when we came and then nothing. When I used the sugar, no more came. I had my own with me. Probably these are not the company policy but our cleaning ladys. She otherwise excelled in her job at the last day before the tipping. Our bed was done nicely etc. We had a small water bottle from the hotel when we came and then on the last day. Cleaning lady again? I needed assistance for finding a shop for Fado cd. The lady at the the check in desk was not very helpful. Our cleaning lady got her tip and yes, I recommend this hotel. The big things were OK. (No swimming pool and the sea water is cold)

Room Tip: Sea side for the view

It's a bargin for £40, staff we're friendly and parking was free. If your looking a cheap one night stay in a town by the sea - this should do nicely.
