    Fantastic location. Comfortable, air conditioned room. Very attentive staff. What a choice for breakfast and in such a lovely setting. Best Indian restaurant we've been in for a long time.

    Superb

    This hotel is right in the center of town over looking the beach, and back's onto a pedestrian walk way. The breakfast was excellent and the best things about this hotel were the staff.

    Exclusive

    Hotel is located directly on the superb beach at Amaçao; has a nice and clean pool with comforable long chairs. We had 2 large rooms on the sea side with balcony and fantastic view. Car parking is free, the breakfast buffet is excellent except the coffee.

    No WiFi in the room, however in public areas. The coffee - as already mentioned - is poor.

    I thought the hotel and the staff were excellent. Very obliging and helpful. The resort itself is quite small and the hotel was at the end. It was obviously off season but really not a lot to do. If you are looking for a quiet break then this is the place.

    Very good

    The hotel is well situated in centre of town right by the beach. We stayed in a newly refurbished room which was clean and comfortable

    I had a bad experience at the hotel and have written a letter to holiday inn head office. The safety mat in the bath didn't stick in place. As I stepped in to have a shower the mat slipped causing me to slide. In have suffered severe bruising and discomfort to my legs. The hotel staff didn't want to take responsibility. They changed the mat and offered to pay a doctors bill if needed. They should have investigated all mats in the hotel in case someone elderly fell. They may not have been so lucky.

    Guest rating

    The location of the hotel is excellent.

    The deluxe (aka standard) room was small and pokey. The luxury room was very spacious but lacked identity. The bed in the luxury room was like lying (awake, usually) on a stone. The bath was chipped and needed replacing. The tap was absolutely goosed and needed three repair jobs - none of them professional. The hotel looks tired and many facets need attention. On arrival, three light bulbs needed replacing in our room. The maid inappropriately had us charged for one can of Coke. I raised the matter at Reception and you would have thought I had robbed a bank! Oh, and don't ask for soap; you won't get any (no matter how many times you ask). Just hope you're armpits don't smell that much whilst you're in Armacao de Pera. Soap must be expensive in Portugal. For rating, read 3* (not 4).
