Casa das Aguarelas
Ranked #7 of 23 Ericeira B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Although we only stayed at Casa das Adurelas one night we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished we would have stayed longer! While it didn't have a view, our triple room was perfectly laid out for 3 people. The 3rd bed was in a semi-private alcove separated from the main room by a wall and was perfect for my 20 year old daughter. The room itself was tastefully furnished and the old wood trim and floors added a rustic feel to an otherwise updated room. The bathroom was completely modern and clean. Would return again but next time would request a view, terrace or kitchenette if staying longer than one night.

Beautiful little Portuguese gem, we stayed last week for 1 week and the hotel was lovely, helpful staff, both Bruno and Susana were very helpful, room was always spotless, very modern interior, typical Portuguese exterior in brilliant white and blue. Ericeira was great lively resort with lots of restaurants to choose from, would return and recommend.

Room Tip: some of the locals were very noisy until 2-3am - but wgat can you do

My wife and I stayed at Casa das Aguarelas for a few nights and loved it. Highly recommended.

Before giving its (many) positives, our only problem was that no one was there to check us in - even though they knew when were coming. We ended up waiting about 40 minutes. I used the phone at the shop around the corner to call the mobile number listed on the door. Bruno was apparently at a meeting that ran late. Such contingencies should be planned for. He was, however, friendly and apologetic. Would have given 5 stars if not for this.

But... we nonetheless recommend Casa das Aguarelas. Great spot right in the centre of Ericeira and near a couple of its numerous beaches. The room was very large, newly renovated, had a kitchenette and a beautiful view of the sea (note, however, that each room is different - request ahead!). Bruno helpfully recommended some activities and even got us a discount on surf lessons (and he did disclose that he had a working relationship with them - honesty which was much appreciated). The surf lessons were great, so we signed up for more!

Service was generally great and responsive when we had requests. They don't serve breakfast, but the kitchenette in our room worked perfectly - and allowed us to have coffee and breakfast overlooking the sea.

There's also a nice patio for sitting outside (or for smoking) which we didn't use, but was quite nice.

Room Tip: Each room is different - ask for sea view and/or kitchenette.

Highly recommend this Hotel. Spent 4 nights in June 2013 here. View of the ocean from our bedroom, beach on our doorstep, right in the centre of the town. It was quiet, v clean and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We had such an amazing stay and the rooms were lovely and spacious and new! The owner did a great job with the place! Will defo be coming back here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the ocean :)

I stayed here for a few days after my wedding in Portugal, as well as most of my guests. Bruno, the owner was incredibly helpful, even getting out of bed at 4am on the night of my wedding to help us out with our forgotten room key! I couldn't have asked for friendlier staff. Ericeira is stunning, and this hotel is very conveniently located just off the main square.

Would highly recommend.

Comfortable, clean, helpful staff and great location in the middle of a beautiful picturesque town. Please bear in mind that this is not a B&B but a house with rooms with all the amenities. The room we were staying in was good but it lacked of light and air. We didn’t spend much time in the room so this was not too much of a problem. WiFi was not working and they had some twin beds together instead of a double bed which was not the most comfortable in some occasions :-)

Arrived there in glum overcast weather, feeling a bit down, when arrived at hotel found staff and room gave us a lift. Sun came out and the terrace that came with our room became an instant sun trap that lasted until the sun came down. Located close to the beach one way and close to the shops the other way.

Room Tip: Recommend family room that comes with terrace seating area.
