Before you get fooled by the low price please read the warnings on here. I have stayed in hotels and hostels in many countries. Genuinely as long as its got a roof and I can get a couple hours of sleep I'm happy. This hotel was hell on earth.
The room was filthy when we checked in. We done a basic clean up ourselves and moved on. We went to the pool the next day which is also filthy, just dirt everywhere and broken tiles in it. Again we weren't fussy so we let that go as well but should have known it was going to get worse.
The staff are awful rude, the most basic request is turned into a big deal. So when we did mention the dirty pool and rooms, we were basically told thats the way it is. They were more interested in watching the TV in reception to pay attention to the problem. Imagine a couple of homer simpsons at work and your nearly there.
Then on Friday evening the trouble really began. A stag do with about 20 lads arrived and basically took over. You weren't able to go near the pool, it was taken over by lads getting sick, urinating, and smashing glasses. They were shouting all day and night, racial abusing people from their balcony. At one point they even started on another stag do that had arrived. They were four stag groups in the the hotel in our first weekend. The hotel knowingly allows them stay and take over. The hotel has a reputation we were not aware of before we booked. On the first Saturday night of our stay fire alarms were set off for over 2 hours by the stag do. At no point were the police called or did the manager try and calm them down. It turned out after setting off the alarms for a couple of hours, they had actually started a fire. They were all on the first floor and the rest of the guest were on the 5th and 6th floor. If that fire had spread it would have been a disaster. People began to ignore the alarm because it had been going off for so long, it the fire had spread, it would have led to deaths.
There are plenty of hotels in the area and are as cheap as this one. If your paying for a holiday on a budget I would urge you to stretch a little further to avoid this hotel. It is not worth ruining your holiday over. Lack of sleep, anger and frustration at everything that goes on there is not worth dealing with. Just book elsewhere and enjoy the lovely weather, generally friendly people of Portugal. We made the best of our first 2 week holiday and the hotel was the only bad point. This is my first review of a place in a negative way, If I can stop one other person booking here I'd feel as if I'd done them a favour. Save yourself the stress and book elsewhere
