Quite a busy hotel but pretty much a bit left behind by modern standards It's a very traditional Portuguese style of hotel with extensive use of tiled decor. Facilities in the bedrooms and bathrooms are adequate for travellers needs. The restaurant is a short walk from the main lobby and serves a decent breakfast with a very acceptable variety of...

Ideal location for numerous good quality golf courses all within 20 - 30 minutes. The hotel rooms are all ok with some signs of wear and tear but hey its not 5 star after all. The breakfast was plentiful and pretty good - prepared us well for a day on the golf course! Area is quite quiet but close to... More

We had a most relaxing week here in mid October 2016. We have only good things to say about our stay at the hotel. The room 2073 was quiet by night, was light-filled, spacious and airy, nicely decorated and clean. The balcony overlooking the pool made it even nicer. The outdoor pool is a lovely sight, with plenty of loungers... More

This is a good hotel......out of season - i.e. late October to April. At the busier times of the year, in the summer, the Vila Gale hotel out near the island might be preferable although a car is really needed if you're staying there.
