    quiet and clean hotel.

    Good location for birdwatching around Castro Verde. There is a great restaurant called Castro in the centre of town that knocks the spots off the rest of them. My wife is vegetarian and it has good options for someone who is veggie. Meals were really cheap too , well prepared , and there are a great choice of wines at great prices.

    If, like me, you like to have your morning cup of tea before breakfast, then always travel with a small kettle as very few small Portuguese hotels provide them.

    Good selection for breakfast. Parking on site.

    Very nice. Extremely clean modern hotel, pictures do not do this hotel justice. The young lad on reception was very knowledgable on the local area even printing out maps for us. Very good breakfast. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting Castro Verde.

    WIFI access in room intermittent. No evening meal service but there is a very good restaurant a few minutes walk away.

    Clean, comfortable, quiet. Plenty of hot water and large fluffy towels. Good location. Excellent breakfast.

    This hotel is very noisy. Not only do the sounds from the lobby/bar come freely into your room (because there is nothing between this and the door of your room). Apart from that the walls between the rooms are paperthin, so you can hear everything that goes on in the adjacent room. I don't think the architect ever stayed in a hotel ;)

    Nice light hotel; room with balcony; good breakfast; friendly staff.

    Wasn't overly impressed with the local restaurants and had a difficulty finding the hotel without satnav.

    Lovely clean modern hotel, attentive staff, really nice breakfast, ideally located for nearby LPN Castro Verde Environmental Education Centre. Overall, very good value for money.

    Rooms are not very noise insulated. You can hear people in the neighboring rooms when they talk.

    Excellent staff. Great value for your money. Castro Verde is a classic small town with character and a friendly feel.

    I didn't like the fact I couldnotfit that comfy bed in my back pack :)

    The hotel is easy to find, not far out of Faro, just off the main motorway in a lovely little village. Staff very welcoming and helpful, extremely clean and well presented, bed was one of the comfiest I had ever slept in and breakfast was scrumptious
