We have just returned from a two week stay at The hotel Oriental, with Saga. We chose this hotel as it is small and it looked very nice from the reviews. It was indeed very nice, our room had a kitchenette which was good as we were able to make coffee in the morning before we went to breakfast and... More

Booked this hotel via Saga and location, facilities , rooms and appearance of public areas lived up to our expectations. The hotel is very attractive although the bar area is small and this must be a problem when the hotel is full. During our visit mostly only Saga guests used the bar - probably because Saga currently have an All... More

The hotel is lovely with very good bedrooms, beautiful garden area , lovely swimming pool with good sun loungers around it. The beach below it is beautiful with lovely sand and great walks, also lots of excellent restaurants. In the town in front of the hotel are lots of excellent restaurants and interesting shops. All in a very friendly area.

This is an unusual styled, very attractive hotel on a low clff, with a fabulous view of the beach at Praia de Rochas. Our room was comfortable with a huge TV but here the negatives come in! There was a horrible smell of drains coming up from the wash hand basin which lacked the vital element of a U-bend. We... More

Impressed by the hotel and its obviously Moorish based design and décor. Staff generally pleasant and helpful, Buffet breakfast and waiter service lunches very good. Starter and desert choices for dinner exceptional, but could only grade the hot main course buffet items from good to occasionally very good. The last of the summer sun only put in a fleeting appearance,... More

My husband and I visited the hotel for a cocktail while staying in the area simply because we're not fans of English/Irish style bars and the resort doesn't offer much else in the line of bars!
