no elevator , no staff to carry my luggage upstairs. poor breakfast

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness
Good Location, Not so good quality
The hotel is very close to the main beach area which is nice, almost everything is walking distance, drogo do mar, mercado central, and the beach. However the hotel itself was nothing special it looks beautiful on the inside, and the breakfast and rooftop pool were great, but the room itself is lacking. We had ant infestations twice. They don't seem to really clean the floors either. Otherwise it wasn't bad.. but way too expensive for what you get.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Room comfort
Hotel location is not recommended for a family tri
The only good thing about this hotel is the breakfast. The hotel is close to the beach, but you will not be able to jump into the water around it. In addition, the hotel is surrounded by bars of "questionable" clientele when night falls. I do not recommend it for a family trip. You can get a better pace near the Beira Mar for about the same rate.

5/5 Excellent
