Probably better to book elsewhere
Posted Mar 9, 2016 on Hotels
My fiancé and I have been traveling the coast of Portugal for over a week. There were 3 main reasons we chose to spend more and book this hotel in Figueria da Foz among the others: the free Wifi, the "free" parking, and the nice pool. The location is great, walking distance to lots of bars/cafes, and the view of the ocean and beach is magnificent. However, neither are worth the money. Our room was on the 10th floor and the wifi was spotty at best. I literally had to sit on a chair in the middle of the room to get 2 of 3 bars. The parking is free but it's public parking along the street. Luckily we were there during the slow season so keep that in mind if you're staying during high season. The most disappointing point was that the pool was an additional 15€ per person for limited time and required the guest to book a session ahead of time. We were not impressed with the service by the front desk although the maids were friendly. The room requires the key to be plugged in to use any electricity in the room and we only received one key which was irritating at times. We did like the bathroom because the shower was large and got very hot. I'm sad to say, I would not recommend this hotel.
