The Colonial Guest House
The hotel is old colonial style and lovely. Bathroom is separated from the room. Patio and garden is nice and charming. The only issue here is wifi does not work in the room only outside. The other problem is hotel advertise half board room price but when you check in they inform you that your maximum spend limit escudo 1,200 up to 1,500 which equals to roughly EUR12-15. If you go over the limit you have to pay. That does not make half board. Half board is when lunch or dinner is included without limit. The hotel has to fix this issue as it is misleading and false advertising. Other than that it was nice staying here

Beautiful place in the middle of town.
The owner was fantastic - very hands on to ensure everything was satisfactory. When my taxi did not arrive, he even gave me a ride to the airport to ensure I caught my flight.
