Dringend Renovierung nötig

Posted Nov 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel liegt sehr gut, in 3 Gehminuten vom Surfer-Strand Carcavelos. War sicher mal ein gutes Hotel, aber ist inzwischen extrem heruntergekommen. Sehr Schade dass offenbar nicht mehr investiert wird. Frühstücksraum mit phantastischer Aussicht.

Not nice, but closer to the beach.

Posted Oct 27, 2014
They paid no attention to our bookings; 1 booking was two single beds standard view, they gave one double bed. Another booking was one double bed and another single bed in seaview, they gave two single beds. Upon request they provided a single extra bed but that bed was poor (springs seriously shattered, it was a folding bed). Not much of a seaview; about 5% seaview! I have stayed here 3 times in total and this time I was not happy at all!

Hôtel à Caiscais

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Son accessibilité et les petits déjeuners sont copieux.
Cons: Rafraichissement complet de l'extérieur et l'intérieur. Réparation, peinture, nettoyage, remeubler et redécorer.
Location: Nous n'avons pas été assez longtemps à cet endroit pour en juger.
C'était notre premier arrêt à l'arrivée au Portugal. Quelle déception ! Nous l'avons trouvé assez facilement et nous avons pu garer la voiture dans la rue juste en face. Nous avions vu sur la mer et sur la piscine de l'hôtel. Mais l'hôtel lui-même est en décrépitude et aurait besoin de rénovations majeures. Il y a du moisi dans la salle de bain, l'air climatisé sur le balcon est tout rouillé, c'est surprenant qu'il puisse encore fonctionné. Vraiment décevant.

Forstår ikke hvordan dette hotellet kan få 4 stjerner. Golvteppene var skitne og flekkete. Hårde madrasser. Rommene var enkelt utstyrt. Balkongveggene hadde sprekker og manglet maling. Ingen møbler på balkongen, før vi ba om det. Vi fikk to stoler. Tv'n hadde bare portugisiske kanaler. Internett virket dårlig på rommet. Vi måtte sitte i nærheten av resepsjonen for å få forbindelse. Vi bodde i syvende etasje, og ble vekket ca kl. halv syv hver morgen av støy fra restauranten i etasjen over. Bord og stoler ble dratt over golvet og laget mye bråk. De vakre bildene fra restauranten må være tatt for lenge siden,. Den så ikke like innbydende ut nå. Frokosten var enkel og uten variasjon. Vi spiste middag /lunsj der noen få ganger i løpet av vårt 10 dager lange opphold. Helt ordinær mat. Hyggelige kelnere. Vi ville gjerne ha brukt bassenget mer fordi det var rødt flagg på stranden hver dag under vårt opphold. Det var mye vind og kraftige bølger der( virkelig et paradis for surfere). Bassenget var dessverre så skittent at vi ikke kunne tenke oss å benytte det, før det ble rengjort. Det skjedde noen få dager før vår hjemreise. Sannsynligvis er det beliggenheten, den fantastiske utsikten og forholdsvis lav pris, som gjør at hotellet har gjester. Det trenger i høy grad renovering! Vi kan ikke tenke oss å komme tilbake til Praia Mar.

Pleasant hotel close to the beach

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Good access to the beach. Helpful staff. Clean and comfortable.
Cons: The hotel could do with a facelift at some point. Breakfast is adequate but uninspired.
Location: Beside an excellent beach that is well maintained. Small number of bars and restaurants nearby. Excellent train links to explore Lisbon and the coast.
We had a very pleasant stay here. The hotel is close to the beach, with fantastic sea views. The room was clean and well maintained. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. It turned out to be an excellent base to get both time on the beach and easy access to Lisbon. The train station is a short easy walk away with regular trains to Lisbon running until the early hours of the morning. There are a number of restaurants and bars available locally. There's nothing flashy about the hotel but it was clean and comfortable and welcoming. I would definitely be happy to stay again.

Worst hotel ever.

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Its nothing as they show us on the pictures.it looks like a haunted mansion. Me and my boyfriend were the only younger couple the rest was 50+ the swimmingpool the bar the restaurant everything looked like its been there for a 100 years even the name of the hotel on the building looked like it would fall of any minute it was just terrible how could this even be a 4* hotel?everything was also too far from the hotel so we had to travel by taxi or train almost an hour to get somewhere.this is not a place for a younger couple.and this hotel looks like a 1* hotel ive seen 2*hotels better than this one. Just terrible!what a waste of money and time.the pictures on the site are fake! It doesnt look like that in real life iam very dissapointed.it all looked so cheap.it was like a house for the elders. Never again.

Inexpensive hotel by the beach.

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Pros: Clean rooms and hot water. Walking distance to restaurants and the station plus beach.
Cons: Staff levels and actually trying to sell food and drinks. Breakfast was boring and could be difficult as the two coffee machines broke down once.
Location: Good location if you like beach and surfing although not trendy. Near a busy road. Between Lisbon and Cascais so okay for getting out. Car is handy.
Hotel generally tired. Even looking at it there was plaster breaking off the outside. Some road noise but near the beach where there are some bars and restaurants. Beach busy with surfers but not very clean and would not be a Blue Flag location. Too much plastic waste. Also some restaurants in a small square behind the hotel which were cheaper than the beach. Not too far to walk to the station for a train into Lisbon or Cascais. Hotel rooms clean though and always hot water. The bed was hard however. Lots of noise on floor 7 from chairs and tables being dragged about two floors up in the restaurant. Seemed to happen every morning (early) and evening. Breakfast was monotonous after a few days and needs more variety. We never had dinner in the hotel. Hotel staff seemed to work hard, especially moving tables and chairs about and it left me thinking there were not enough of them. They seemed busy and hassled and did not engage with the guests. To be frank a bit miserable. Getting a drink from the two bars was hard work as there never seemed to be any staff around even when they were open. One evening there was a whole load of French guests in the reception area where one bar is located and no one had a drink, probably because there were no bar staff. We also came back one evening about 10.30 and the bar was closed completely. If we accept that it is a budget hotel and a bit tired, it could still be a good choice if things like the breakfast monotony and staff could be improved.

hôtel bien situé ne correspond pas à un 4 étoiles

Posted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: sa vue sur la mer, et sa proximité des plages
Cons: moquette à changer, rénovation totale de l'hôtel
Location: à visiter SINTRA, ERICEIRA, phare de CABO DA ROCA, PENICHE , NAZARE, dégustation de poissons grillés dans les villes côtières
très vétuste, l'hôtel nécessite une bonne rénovation, moquette dans les chambres à changer, pas de chaine en langue française, personnel sympa et disponible.

Det værste jeg har oplevet

Posted Sep 13, 2014
Meget kort om selve hotellet dårlig service, rengøring , dårlig værelset ekstrem dårlige seng, badeværelse, tv, altan, tæppe meget dårlig stand hotellet er ik et 4stjernet hotel nærmere 2stjernet med pil nedad. dårlig mad det samme hverdag masser at spindelvæv i selve resturanten og gardiner total affarvet. hotellet skriger efter maling og poolen er beskidt og trænger til istandsættelse liggestole er beskidte i bund og grund dårlig oplevelse burde have refunderet nogle af vore penge. mangler virklig en makeover
