    Misunderstanding about check out time. In room the folder said 12 o’clock but they still expected us to follow booking.com time 11am. So they should have said something when we checked in.

    Good location. Big towels in room. Close to the beach.

    They charge for WiFi. Impossible to get one of the seats by the swimming pool, unless you want to be one of those people who book one of the multiple spots with their towel and go elsewhere. Not very "automatic", if you didn't book breakfast in advance and have it, they don't charge it to your room, but you need to pay in the moment.

    Great room, very spacious and comfortable. Direct view of the see, nice breeze all day long. Five minutes walking to the beach. Underground parking.

    Nothing I didn't like although pool quite small for the size of the hotel but it was pleasant

    Big comfy 2 bed apartment was ample for the 5 of us with loads of room. Very clean. Excellent room service and clean towels/sheets. Excellent location for lovely beaches and walk into town. I would definitely recommend!!

    Cleaning was not sufficient. We stayed for 10 days and the kitchen was very dirty the last days. Cleaning of the kitchen was not included in the service, but we did not find any cleaning equipment to clean the kitchen ourselves. Cleaning of the floors in the rest of the apartment was not sufficient. The kitchen was poorly equipped.

    Fantastic location close to the ocean, great view from 6th floor, nice and spacious apartments, quiet and comfortable.

    -the hotel is noisy the sliding of the chairs you will hear it wel, so bring earplugs to sleep -each room has a boiler but the shower only has a small soft stream of warm water, I said warm not hot.

    -the hotel is old but in good condition and it is clean and tidy. Rooms are outdated but for the price fine. -you are right next to the sea with this hotel. From the street it is 50 meters and then you fall off the rocks -the rooms are big you have a kitchen with living room and separate bedroom and separate bathroom with bidet -the boulevard with eateries are within walking distance of the hotel about 1km -if you like it ... each room has its own Wi-Fi. ...we turn this off, we do not like radiation -all room with 14 ,15, 16, 17 in its nummer (so 114, 214, 314) have direct sea views...so you know;) and sea view means south and therefore you will have ,on your own balcony, the sun all day. -i think all rooms have air conditioning which can be set hot and cold. That is useful because we went in May and we had the air conditioning all night at 25gr otherwise it was a bit cold. -Under the hotel is a garage where you can park your rental car...nice!

    • Leisure trip

    • Stayed 4 nights

    Directions to hotel need attention! Far too detailed with a lot of street names which are NOT visible on roads! Basically leave as instructed from motorway (junction 5?) and stick to main road until you reach end (and the sea cliff!) At the last roundabout the Presidente blue sign is clearly to be seen over to the right. Pleasant pool but despite 'no diving' signs extremely noisy with children constantly jumping in! Luckily the beach is near! Like a lot of hotels the pool does not open until 9.00 so no pre breakfast swim possible.

    Brilliant location on cliff so most of the spacious balconies have great sea views and there were steps to two beautiful beaches. It is not surrounded by other hotels but in less than ten minutes you can be amongst the restaurants and shops of Portimao. The staff were all really pleasant and helpful with good English which helped our total lack of Portuguese! The shop at the corner of the hotel was useful. A good breakfast was an optional extra. Comfy beds! Thoroughly recommended!

    Good location!
    • Leisure trip

    • Stayed 8 nights

    The beds were uncomfortable and the furniture old. Fortunately, the cleaning is done on a daily basis. Based on the logo described by the furniture equipment, the apartments were initially quoted with 4*, but presently, the hotel is evaluated with 2*. We had to pay (additionally) for the safe's key and also a (refundable) deposit for the air conditioning remote control.

    We liked a lot the apartments' location and the staff services (cleanliness and their attitude). Also, the apartments (we stayed in the two rooms apartments) are big. The cleaning is done every day and the towels are changed each two days.
