We needed a place to stay at short notice and my daughter found this little gem hidden away on Expedia, charging silly money (35€ for two) for bed and breakfast. We drove past it twice on the main road, before realising that we had to turn in to a side street just before the hotel, and once we found it, had no trouble parking on the street close by. We were warmly welcomed by the manageress, registered and then given a welcome drink of the local cherry liqueur before going up to our room. The room was plenty big enough, with two twin beds, and a full bathroom, as well as a lovely sun trap of a balcony. Everywhere was spotless, albeit a little tired and in need of some decorative work, but at the price charged, I wasn’t expecting the Ritz, and the Marazul was definitely great value for money. We would happily visit again if we were in the area - so she is doing something right!

This is an older hotel located in a small square in the centre of the town. It is quaint and they provide a small but adequate continental breakfast. The rooms are not roomy but they kept clean and are serviced daily. The hotel is run by a very helpful and seemingly tireless lady who was always available to offer information on the local. There are few restaurants and bars in town offering pretty good quality. The main drawback is the due to the age of the hotel the soundproofing, both internal and external, is not of a modern standard. You will hear pretty much everything happening in the adjoining rooms and corridor and the comings and goings in the square outside the hotel. I was aware of the church bells sounding between 07.00am and 22.00pm, so this did not come as surprise.

It's not very often I will make time to write a detailed review, but this hotel is extraordinary, and deserves explanation. As a preface, I'm a well seasoned traveller in my late 30's. Visited nearly every Country, and yet until recently not Portugal. It had never really taken my fancy. Anyhow, the hotel Marazul took me by complete surprise. It's more than just a hotel; It's a window into rural life at it's most beautiful - total simplicity. It's precisely how small, rural Somerset villages in Britain used to be 100 years ago before being spoiled by investors and pretentious types. I will state now, there are no faults with this hotel. I wouldn't change a thing. I love it. I don't expect I will ever make a 5 star review on here again. I've never felt a hotel has justified it until now. Hotel marazul is not about fancy decor, mcdonalds in the lobby, a spa with pools, or a savoy grill with a named chef. If that's all you desire look away, now! Leave this treasure for those longing for a true taste of humanity. The owner of this hotel gave me the warmest welcome I've seen since being in Portugal. She offered me a complimentary drink on arrival, but most of all a tremendous smile - and what's more her genuine joy at having a new guest that's not stayed here before. You can't fake this. It's how hospitality should be. I've been lucky, I've stayed in some of the most expensive and so called most exquisite hotels, and believe me they could learn a thing or two from marazul about how to make a guest feel welcome. Now there's something that's always bothered me about expensive hotels - it always feels like fake hospitality somehow, plastic smiles. You wonder, would they smile if they weren't being paid £1000's per night? But for €29 per night at Marazul that wasn't ever in question, it doesn't get more genuine or down to earth than this. So this one at €29 including breakfast was my choice for the night. It was in fact the best choice I've made for a particularly long time! It was recommended to me by my brother who also stayed here recently and fell in love with the place. I turned up on my motorbike. The owner very kindly let me store my bike safely overnight in the locked court yard belonging to her hotel. So the hotel itself - ok there's no plastic here! It's old world quality; no fancy light switches by your bed that switch off the balcony lights, the room lights, or even any light for that matter. There's an old crt (cathode ray tube) telly in the room sat on an equally dated table cloth, flowery net curtains my grandma had 30 years ago, and a bed cover I vaguely remember seeing on the antiques roadshow! But look closer at how the owner has put love and care into it all; There's not a cobweb in sight, the room is so very clean, absolutely no dust, dirt or litter. There's an old hand knitted tea cosy covering the spare toilet roll in the bathroom, and this lovely pair of bedside lamps I've not seen the likes of for decades. But it's clean!!! That's the point! It's cared for exceptionally well. The bed is not a premier inn deluxe memory foam, and there is no 50m heated pool, sauna or balcony terrace. There's isn't a minibar in the room. But it's perfect. You don't need a Nasa designed memory foam bed, seriously - you don't! If you do, then you shouldn't be travelling - get back to hospital. This bed is fine. You don't need a mini bar because down stairs you have the most friendly and lovely host who's stocked a range of drinks just for your pleasure. If you had a mini bar, you'd miss out on the human contact that makes this place so special. Next door to the hotel is a fantastic cafe that serves equally as down to earth food and beer. A 12" pizza for €7.50! It was delicious. I was expecting at €7.50 for it to be a tiny pizza. But it was huge! The church bell opposite the hotel rings hourly from 7am. Why? Because hundreds of years ago people didn't have iphones to remind them that their family dinner was at 8pm. Or even digital watches that alarmed at 7am to wake them up. No, they relied upon the village bells to chime 7 times to tell them indeed it was 7am and time for work. The villagers still use the chimes of the church bell to that end. What a lovely way of life. Why change it. Yes it chimes at 7am in the morning. What a great way to wake up - it's absolutely beautiful. In someways it's a shame the bells were restricted in hours due to 'moaning' hotel guests. They used to chime every hour I understand. But yeah I guess I can also see how it could be a shock to the system for travellers not expecting to be woken up by church bells! Even so, it's old world loveliness and a shame it's a case of 'times are a changing'. There's a road running through the village, and it just so happens to be one of the main roads into Peniche. So again, don't fault the hotel! The hotel building was here long before the roads became busy. It's not really a problem anyway because the hotel is very well constructed. You can only hear the road when your window is wide open. Outside the hotel is a lovely cobble-stoned street and what feels like a small, rural market courtyard; just perfect for watching the world go by whilst sipping a pint of local beer. So in summary, I highly recommend this hotel if you have become bored of luxurious hotels with every modern creation but no soul or humanity. If so, come here, you won't regret it. Breath it in, soak it up - it's like a trip back in time to when humanity was at it's best. If on the other hand you aren't able to see the love and care the owner puts into her hotel, and you just want classy, modern interiors, with 5 bars, water jet pools, and care not for seeing beyond the plastic exterior of financial pretence; then this hotel is absolutely not for you. It's decorated as grandma would do, and hasn't been redecorated or modernised as such. And why should it - it's perfect, homely and welcoming. A visit to Grandma!

Although the owner was lovely and friendly, this was not at all what we expected. It is in the middle of nowhere except that it is almost on top of a church that has chimimg bells every half hour from 7.00am to 10.00pm. It is in need of a total makeover and I was so cold I slept in my clothes, funnily enough we didn't stay for the 2 nights that we had booked. Just to add to the experience the nearby (20 mins drive), fishing town of Perniche is a dive!

Dear Mr. Alisom H. Thank you for your comment, 1- With regard the church bells, were already taken measures to ensure that they do not disturb the rest of our guests. Thanks for the information, appropriate measures to the welfare of our guests will be taken. 2 - Concerning the room temperature, we were all surprised as all our rooms are equipped with air conditioning, with adjustable temperature by the guest. All devices are working properly and in good conditions, which leads us to think that you possibly have not turned on the air conditioner and have chosen to sleep window open. In this situation there are additional blankets in the room. In case of need can also be ordered at the reception. We wish you a good trip.
