“Awful hotel don't stay here at all”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Stayed for five days until we could move out. Terrible place. Room tiny, damp wet and nowhere to put anything. Breakfast was concrete cornflakes and warm ham and a coffee vending machine. No pool no one at bar inside which was red hot as no air con, view of car park. Couldn't wait to get out. Depressing place!

We went to this hotel on 22 september 2012 for my husbands 60th birthday, what a big dissapointment .We booked through media travel who assured us this was not the hotel we were going to. When we got there we put in a small box of a room , we complained that not only that this was not the hotel that we booked, we were not staying in this room,we demanded that they move us to to another room.As we had paid for an upgrade in the hotel before we went and had to wait until monday for a room with a balcony and a sea view. Not happy it was supposed to be a special time. No bar, no pool, they allowed dogs in the breakfast room, no tea or coffee facilities in the room, breakfast was cold bacon and scrambled eggs, with continental breakfast consisting of corn flakes and ham and cheese slices with bread rolls,for seven days (how boring) this hotel has nothing to offer for long term holiday makers.God help anybody who takes children. its classed as a 3 star hotel, but realy its just a gloryfied guest house who caters for people who just passing through. sorry but the staff are not to blame as they nice people and did their best to serve our needs.

Room Tip: avoid booking as its not what you pay for ,its false publication.you will only be dissappointed.P.S...

Worst hotel ever visited. Small smelly and very basic. Canceled our booking when we arrived and went across the road to the grande real Santa Eulalia. A bit more expensive but a lot more for your money. Would not recommend to my worst enemy

The room was small and smelled of sweat, wet towels and worse! Unfortunately, had to stay there for three nights whilst on business in Faro last month. Checked out a day early and drove back to Porto in the evening rather than staying an extra night and driving back in the morning. Escaped the bedbugs! Probably the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at in Europe.

We rented a superior room with garden view.
The room is 2 m per 2 meters, smells very bad, dirty, and the view is in the back of the residential Santa Eulalia , a virgin place where cars can park, no asfalt, no garden, just mud and bushes. Not RECOMMENDED AT ALL!! We cancelled our booking!!!
