    Not really good facilities, and it's wasn't clean, very very old apartment like you are in 60's. Bed wasn't comfortable and they said parking and we couldn't park there. I think you can find find something better for that money.

    The apartment its a bit outdated, but given its excelent location its very good value for the money. Staff were very friendly! Very quiet, considering its proximity to the bars street. The parking its a plus! (altough it will get full very fast)

    It's a very simple apartment but has everything you need for a good beach holiday. It's a great value for money and it's super close to the beach. The photos on the website doesn't show exactly how the apartment is. It's way bigger.

    Little bit dated - could do with a makeover but we did know this from the pictures before booking so this wasn't a surprise. Could only get wifi at reception but better than none at all!

    Staff were really friendly and helpful. Always smiling. Apartments were a good size. Great location. 24 hr reception.

    Having to ask for clean towels after 4 days of using the same set, then given dirty stained towels as replacements. Also having to ask for toilet paper. Ohhh and having all of my white socks turned dirty and stained from the floors!

    Very poor value for money, staff not very attentive. Very minimal English spoken and understood, smells awful.

    Room was too hot and only had a faulty fan that made a lot of noise. Night porter was super rude when we rang the bell at 3am after having been out. He was asleep and took a lot of time to come to the door and when he finally did he was incredibly rude showing a bad face and not even answering when we said goodnight, which shouldn't happen since the reception is supposed to be 24 hours

    Super central and had all the basic commodities necessary. Lovely gentleman in reception during the day, very kind and helpful. The cleaning wasn't spotless but was still decent. Good value for money.

    I do not recommend staying in this hotel. Although cheaper that other apartments in Portimao, it is not worth its price. Old dilapidated furniture from eighties, to ignite the gas cooker you need matches (!) but they are not there, no electric kettle, no cleansing agents in the kitchen, lousy fridge, broken curtain rods, cupboards with handles torn off, warm water in the bathroom available if you have luck, bathroom generally squalid, dirt in the kitchen. This is a three-star hotel, but in fact one star would be far enough. Don't be deluded with photos. In reality rooms, especially bathrooms, look quite depressing.

    Perfect location near the beach, staff very friendly and helpful.

    It is very outdated building. If refurbished would be an excellent choice for all.

    Location, location, location. It is 5m walking to Praia da Rocha beach and main strip with loads of restaurants, shops, casino everything. Certainly this is the main advantage of this hotel. Staff is very nice, helpful and extremely polite . Well done to them!

    It's an older property but the great location and amazing staff more than makes up for any faults. Portimão is a beautiful place.

    Shame there's no WiFi in the rooms. Very old building could do with a revamp.

    Wi-Fi only in public place.

    Really big apartment with private parking and balcony. Super staff - recommended all that you want (for example local restaurant). We stay only one night on our trip, and is more like ideal for travelers and not only during summer season.

    • Leisure trip

    The place would benefit greatly from re-decoration. It's not unclean, but a bit dated, the furniture is clearly late seventies or early eighties.

    Great location, great staff. Also the price was the best available in the whole resort for the time of year I was there.
