One ´awful review should not cloud anyone's judgment. Read the reviews here on Trip Advisor and elsewhere before rushing off to change your hotel.


What did this particular review say that so concerns you?

Hi IrelandGemma,we have stayed at the Sol e mar four or five times and back again next week for twelve days so don't be worrying.Personally I would disregard that negative comment on the hotel review site as it doesn't do the hotel or the area justice.

That review is from August 2013,why did it take so long to put the review in such detail 9 months after the visit, and it is their one and only review.

If you are concerned send them a PM and ask, but I find it suspicious .

Surely prior to booking a hotel you do some investigating, it is situated right on the beach and near the old town.

So surprise surprise in August at the height of the season the beach was extremely busy,I wonder why.

The pavement cobbles famous throughout Portugal ,must be a nightmare for high heel wearers,but thats Portugal's character.

Returned from there yesterday.

Location unbeatable, staff very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We were B&B, the food was limited enough. But eggs are eggs!

in fairness that review complained about not being able to walk on cobbled streets with high heels!!!!

You'll have a great time, only noise at night was from the waves gently breaking!

ive never read a more bizzare review, they mention the following all in one paragraph

an AWFUL door

a NASTY door

an NASTY side door

how can you take a review seriously when A - the person has only posted 1 review and B - they have a strange fixation with doors.
