Had reservations about going to a 2*, however, having read the good comments on Trip Advisor we decided to give it go. We found the Perla to be a very pleasant little hotel, clean and with a friendly staff. An unassuming place where you can just go as you please. It has everything you might need for a budget trip with no unneccersary frills and in a good location, close to the beach, clubs and pubs. A nice balcony area to each room, the shower was excellent, one of those power showers that pummel you with endless hot water. A fresh supply of towels every day. One member of staff that needs to be mentioned is 'Manoel'. He is jack of all trades, cooks the breakfast, mans the bar, cooks snacks all day - always with a smile on his face.
Speaking of the Breakfast - it is not the Ritz and at first glance the presentation of the food appears haphazard, but there is a varied selection of fruit, cakes, buns, yoghurts, and cereals as well as cheese, cold meat and the usual cooked food. To see a tray piled up with about a hundred fried eggs on top of one another is a sight to behold. Someone else mentioned the sausages, yes, they are tasty.
To avoid disappointment:
1. Be prepared to pay 2 Euros a day for the loan of the Safe in your room, plus a 3 Euro deposit for the key, plus a 10 Euro deposit will get you the remote to work the telly. So you will get 13 Euro's back at the end of your stay.
2. If you like to sleep during the night at 'proper hours' please request a 'Poolside' room when booking. This prevents you being kept awake by the noise from the 'Red Dog' bar on the opposite side of the Hotel, whose music finishes at 0530 ish every morning. If you like Country and Western music all night then take the north side. The other benefit with the Poolside rooms will be the sun on the balconies (depending on the time of year).
We have no hesitation in recommending the Perla for people on a budget.
