My friend and I went to the Hotel Vasco Da Gama for 2 weeks on the 1st April 2014. We had a charming room with a sea view. Yes as some people have said the furniture is probably a little old fashioned but lots of wardrobe space and the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in abroad. There was a fridge and a safe in the room which were free unlike most hotels. There were also free toiletries in the bathroom and a hairdryer. The bath was a little high but I managed it ok and I have recently had a hip replacement.We paid a little extra for our room so maybe it is worth checking what you get when you book as I know from speaking to Susan M who has reviewed the hotel too that her room was unacceptable.
The hotel is in an ideal spot right on the beach and with in easy reach of public transport if you want to visit Spain or other towns.
We had to queue and go down lots of stairs on the first evening but after a word with the waitress we were then able to get a lift into the wash up area of the kitchen as my friend has great difficulty walking. This actually became quite enjoyable as the ladies washing up greeted us every day with friendly comments and smiles.
The breakfast is fantastic with eggs cooked while you wait so not dried up and hard. The evening meal could be a bit repetitive and as I don't eat meat didn't always suit me but I didn't starve as there was 2 kinds of soup and plenty salad. If you pick your time to go down you can get tables for 2 or 4 as there were only a few long tables usually taken up by groups of friends and on the odd occasion we had to sit at a long table we found people very friendly no matter what nationality they were.
I would definitely go to this hotel again
