    Superb

    The view from the bar on the 7th floor is amazing. I lived in Portimao for 8 years, walked those streets every day. It took a visit back, and a stay at this hotel to appreciate the beauty of Portimao and the river Arade. The free usage of the spa was an excellent bonus

    Fabulous

    Its location and proximity to the Aurtodromo do Algarve. It is located in the small, quiet village of Portimao and just 1.3kms from the more lively Praia da Rocha. Ideal for a more peaceful stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated, tho quite small, but have all the amenities you would expect form a 3 star. The breakfast is very basic, but sufficient.

    Great location, ultra clean rooms, good service, helpful front desk personnel.

    Not changing towels for 3 days. Pillows on beds were too soft so using one was not enough and two were too many.

    Very well situated. Very reasonable prices. Spotlessly clean. Friendly staff.

    Tea & coffee facilities at breakfast could be improved as water from machine was not hot enough No bar facility after 10pm.

    Exceptional

    Well appointed, well furnished , staff friendly and helpful, very clean and comfortable. Beautiful views over the waterfront from the restaurant and bar.Breakfast was o.k.

    We had one evening meal there which was a special at 14.50€ per person. This was a disappointment as most of the food was cold especially the vegetables. The fish option and chicken were o.k. but suffered from being from being left under heaters for too long., and we ate approx. half an hour after the restaurant opened Although staff wandered in and out there was no-one available to whom we could make comments at the time.We didn't think it was good value and ate out for the other two nights.

    Good

    Staff friendly, clean room, close to the water front and centre

    Small room, and basic. More travel lodge than a 3 star hotel. Not an issue but over priced for what you recieve in return. The views are from the dining room only !! We were on the 5th floor, directly under the dining room. At early o clock in the morning they start sorting out the room, draging tables and chairs around above our room which woke us up, not ideal. We had an early night due to a very early flight home, only to be woken, by them sorting out the room after evening service. Deep joy.... Not. Only on street parking available which costs money. The hotel is ok, just not what we expected and too much money for the type of hotel it is.

    Very good

    The art deco nature of the hotel and the closeness to the town.near bus station and train station.very clean hotel and bright and modern.bar has amazing views all around.

    If you have a lower room you will get a smell from the river.when I asked about the smell the lady there said she had never been told about the smell, even though the trip advisor frequently mentions the smell.the bar was open for drinks the music was on etc.no bar attendant.staff could be more friendly.hotel better for short breaks rather than holidays. Has a large turn-over of guests.food just ok.not hot enough water in the machine to make tea.no balconies,more of a town hotel rather than beach hotel.but would suit for price to travel to the beach and other resorts or cities like lisbon or seville.quite closed in hotel.amongst the very narrow streets.
