Very Good Service. Half Board is just right. Clean rooms. Good location to the beach and Restaurants. Air-conditioning is not that strong even temperature went high. Fan was provided when needed though. Food is just enough. Happy to recommend.

The staff here are very very good - nothing was an issue. The location is great and the prices are cheap. The wifi is patchy as many say and the air conditioning wasn't on while we stayed. The breakfast is good and I don't think you would get better outside of the hotel.

We booked this hotel because we had a good deal for a one week break and we are so pleased we did . The Santa Catarina is immaculately clean our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. There was a good selection for breakfast but no full English but that wasn't a problem we would definitely stay here again...

Hotel is well located in Praia da Rocha (across from the beach and casino). Room has very dated furniture and rock hard beds. Bathroom was good and water pressure was excellent. Breakfast was good and plentiful. WIFI was ok in the public areas but couldn't get reception in the guestroom. Onsite parking was a bonus.

We stayed at this hotel for a week, great location, great food, nice rooms, modern bathroom, great base, lots of opportunity to explore or join tours, I would definitely stay here again, located on a busy street but noise wasn't bothersome.

Stayed here for a last minute break during September and have no complaints at all, hotel was clean and modern with good sized rooms and bathroom which had both a bath and shower with good pressure and hot water. Bed was comfortable and room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was european so no cooked option but was tasty all the same
