- parking garage in close proximity to hotel (~500m) at very reasonable price; reserved parking space near hotel to load the luggage off and on;
- very close to the beach and great restaurants;
- room is clean and comfortable;
- breakfast room with stunning ocean views

- tiny bathroom, although very well equipped
- though our room (2nd floor) was facing back street, and there were some noisy late uppers disturbing our sleep at 4 a.m.

Room Tip: Rooms at higher floors should be quieter for light sleepers

Hotel Mare is in the middle of the hustle and bustle in Nazare. It is very close to the beach, restaurants and shops. Ideal location, right? Well the problem is that the walls are not very insulated so you hear everything that is going on in the streets. The night we stayed over, one of the restaurants had a performer playing the guitar and people were singing along and that went on until the wee hours.

Now the room was big enough for our family and they serve a continental breakfast (as I say in all my reviews don't expect American breakfast. You are in Europe and people are more than happy with some bread and cheese and coffee). The staff is very friendly and always trying to help. They can suggest some really good restaurants in the area. The beach is not even 5 minutes away walking, but it's a pretty crowded beach.

In all it's an average hotel, good for a quick stop if you are travelling through Portugal.

We returned to Nazare many years later, to use a voucher I had won in a contest. We wanted to choose a place within short distance of both Lisbon and Fatima. The only hotel in Nazaré that allow the use of my voucher was this, so there we went.
The hotel is well located, near Avenida marginal ( main street by the sea) and the service is friendly. But the room is small and uninteresting, the bathroom even smaller with a tiny shower. The breakfast is not good. Only with a variety of cheese and ham, two varieties of cereals, had nothing to people on diet (no low-fat milk or low-fat yoghurt). Nothing sweet either - cakes, cookies…
It isn´t easy parking near the hotel. At the weekend in low season maybe you´ll find a place on the street a medium distance above the hotel, but I suspect that outside this period will not be easy.
Although inexpensive (I did not pay but went to see - the internet cost this weekend was 49 euros double room) there is almost certainly most interesting choices.

The hotel is very near to the beach, only 2 minutes walk.
The staff is very nice and speak good english.

The rooms are clean, but a little bit old.
On the whole it is loud in the hotel: from the street, from people closing the doors, from the bar near by. But if you have a room not to the street, or upper floor, then it is ok.

Wi-fi is good. Safe is 2 euro a day, and it is a safe with a key (then you have a problem what to do with the key).

The only real PROBLEM for me was a carpet in the room. I think it is impossible to make it clean, because of people coming from the beach with some sand etc. I got some kind of allergie because of this carpet. It was not very nice to have this problem on vacations.

On the whole it was good.

The hotel's location, lobby and room size were all very good. However, the bad out-weighed the good. And so we are clear, we travel with backpacks, around the world. As such, our expectations are not high. The bad included, noise from the street, a tiny shower, smoker's scent in the room, an overly high price and the worst bed we have slept in in many years. We booked in advance because our travels were in August. But there were many, much more afordable, room available. As you arrive and along the streets, there are loads of traditionally dressed ladies offering and advertising rooms.

Room Tip: Asked to see the room to be sure it does not smell bad and to see if the bed is acceptable. Better y...

This hotel is a big disappointment. It is at the narrow and very traffic street, where cars are running all day long till around 1am. If you get a room on the other side, it doesn't make a difference -- there are bars on that little tiny street and they are open from 11pm till 4am. They are not night clubs, just simple cafes and bars with local people talking louder and louder every minute (I guess beause of more beer they drink). Ofcourse windows and doors aren't sound proof, not even to your neighbour rooms. You can listen to your neighbours while they talk, take a shower, watch TV, snore ... :((

Beds are really hard and terrible, you can feel iron wires in them, so your back won't feel very happy about it in the morning.

Breakfast: big NO. So little choise: 2 types of canned fruit, two types of butter, two jams, one honey, proccesed cheese and ham. That's all. I've read here that they have the best coffee in town. Seriously!?!? It is more or less dark water and definitely not sometng you can get in local cafes, they have a very good coffee!

The only good thing about it is free WIFI, password is: 20hotel10

Nazare: a little town with great offer of food, restaurants, cafes, beach is nice, but sea is too rough to swim and too cold (17 degrees in summer). There are tens of people who offer very cheap accomodation in their rooms, you can have a sea fromt view or a silent room -- so say goodbye to this hotel asap. Like I did after 2 nights!
