Stayed here last August. Rooms very nice, very clean. We were B&B and the breakfasts were standard but good enough. Pool area was very quiet with enough beds and the private walkway to the beach, although steep, was easy enough. Fantastic beach. Will definitely return.

We enjoy Portugal and this refurbished hotel is the tops. Next to the beach and overlooking the pier this medium sized hotel provides most of the comforts of its larger neighbours. It scores by providing a competitive priced menu with availability throughout most of the day. Our room had a view of the expansive beach and the dining room must...

We made our reservation via Booking.com. When we arrived we found out that they had upgraded us to a better room which was amazingly beautiful and comfortable. There were some bulldozers at the beach but they didn't bother us that much. We could park our car just in front of the hotel although it was claimed in Booking.com that they...

My villa roomies had a wonderful time at the Hotel's Monday night Fado concert and buffet. For 19 euros we had a four course dinner and a wonderful FADO concert with a lady singer and two guitar players. Everyone enjoyed the fabulous food, excellent service, and the delightful Fado music. We would all recommend this place for the Monday night...
