I stayed at the Mercure Figueira da Foz as part of a Nee Year package including B&B, New Year's Eve dinner and New Year's Day lunch. This was the second time I stayed there, the first being 10 years ago.
I was happy to see the hotel had gone through some considerable refurbishment. The public areas are now brighter, modern and more welcoming. The rooms are not big, but are confortable, cozy, warm (very convenient for the very cold days we had) and with spectacular views, if you get a sea view room like we did.
Staff is very friendly and service was generally very good.

Things that could be improved:
I can't think of many things, really. Bedroom doors are old and could be modernised. Rooms sound proofing could also be improved. The rooms are well insulated to the outside; however things are quite different when it comes to hear what's going on in the room next door, especially in communicating rooms as was our case. Even so, this improves a lot if you close the internal door, separating the bathroom area and the bed area.
Things I liked, to end on a positive note:
practically everything! Breakfast is varied enough, the staff is very nice and helpful, the new decor is beautiful, the view from the rooms facing the beach is great.
Finally, a quick note to New Year celebrations in Figueira da Foz: a completely mad street party that goes on all night! A surprise and a must.
I strongly recommend the Mercure hotel and the New Year's party in Figueira.
