“charming and homely”
Reviewed June 3, 2008

Such a charmingly modest place, with easy-going and helpful staff, this hotel was a God-send after a long drive. We prolonged our stay day after day and are planning a return to the quirky little village of Nazare. Rooms were old and basic but this was not a negative! Side view of sea and soft old bed, you could spend the morning looking out at passers-by. If you want luxury and pretence go elsewhere, but I can't wait for the homely buzz and the creaky, winding staircase. To top it all off was the value! Hope this hotel keeps its charm and old-world feeling.

  • Liked — the unaffected charm and doorstep access to sandy beach
  • Disliked — going home!

We stayed at the Ribamar for two nights in September and enjoyed the location. The man who checked us in was very helpful. Our room was clean, small, but adequate and for the money was more than we expected.
The garage is small but safe. The stairs are steep and there is no elevator but we knew this from reading reviews. The Mare-Bravo next door may be nicer but costs 3 times as much! I would definately use this hotel again. Ask for room 21 if you want a corner room with small balcony, ocean front view and comfortable double bed.

We spent one night at the Hotel-Restaurant Ribamar in Nazare, Portugal in mid September. We did not have a reservation as they do not have internet or email access. But high season was over & we had no problem getting a room on a Monday evening. We paid 45 euros for a 'seaview' room (window overlooking beach - nice breeze). Room was very small & the twin bed was too short for my tall husband. There's no elevator, so hauling suitcases up two flights of spiral steps was a challenge. Parking is another 5 euros, with the secure garage 6 blocks uphill from the hotel. Nazare is on a steep hill with narrow, one-way streets, but it can be traversed! The beach is wide & long & the cliffs of Sitio are right there. Breakfast was just rolls, bread & tea or coffee - we'd been spoiled by nice breakfast buffets. We ate dinner there, enjoying a fish stew for two. We had to remind the waiter to remove the 6 euro charge for octopus salad that was one of the cover dishes they brought to the table. Bread & butter was 1.5 euro per person. So check your bill, as you should everywhere. We enjoyed walking along the waterfront after dinner. Since we frequently paid 85+ euros per night at other places, it's hard to rate this place fairly. It was fine for the price & the location was great.

old fashioned hotel, great view of ocean, but that is only good thing.....this is the type of place to stay if you are a college student, or traveling on a budget.....our room was very small, but the bathroom was like a closet. the shower was so small, the curtain touched all sides of your body while using it. We had a beautiful view out our window, which was great after 2 am when all the people in the street were inside....otherwise, they could see in the room. <our bed was comfortable, but squeeked each time we moved at all. We left the next day and moved next store to the <mar bravo....much better for only another 10 euros.
