Hotel Mirachoro Praia
Ranked #6 of 18 Hotels in Carvoeiro
Reviewed 25 April 2014

I have stayed in both the above hotels (tivoli 3times) so here is a comparison.
Firstly the Tivoli costs about 3 times what this hotel cost so please bear this in mind.
The breakfast is better in the Mirachoro not as busy and very well managed.
The balcony is better in the Mirachoro more privacy from side to side and above.
Location to the centre is better too.
The Mirachoros pool is bigger and now has a jacuzzi.
Obviously the view is better at the Tivoli (as long as you pay extra for sea views).
The Mirachoro just falls down a bit on the bathrooms and general cleaning around the pool.
We visit Carvoeiro at least twice a year in various apartments villas and hotels and I would not hesitate to book this one again.
By the way who goes on holiday to moan about what colour the walls are - sad people.

Room Tip: Even number apartments have morning sun and visa versa

The staff is really nice and the breakfast provides several choices. The interior design is like a 1980 room…the hotel shouldnt be a 4 stars. The TV is old fashion one with a small screen and only few channels are available. The location is quite good. It is located on a hill with some restaurants and a supermarket.

10 mins stroll down into Carvoiero, close to lots of restaurants and bars. Hotel rooms are basic, clean with firm mattresses.Breakfast is plentiful:- juice/cereal/fruit/ham/cheese/eggs/bacon/beans/cakes/bread/toast/coffee/tea. Half board was good value with soup/salads/meat or fish/ dessert. Mains mostly simple basic pork or chicken dishes. Fresh fish was always excellent. Staff were helpful and cleaning and pool and gardens very good.Good value though you're not supposed to bring in drinks or food and the hotel water was expensive.

Came here with my fiance as he had never been to Portugal but I had. Location of hotel is fab. Not to close to the centre but close enough to walk to it. Really clean, good breakfast. Coffee is lovely. Plenty of food. Swimming pool was nice bit cold tho so used indoor one. Hot tub wasn't working but on the last day it was so used that which was lovely. Staff very nice. Left a bottle of wine in our room with scattered roses and a heart plaque saying congratulations in Portuguese on it because it was our anniversary. Bar was OK bit slow on making cocktails but was worth the wait. Hoping to return next year. My fiances new favourite place.

Although bright & breezy this hotel does not deserve the 4 stars attributed to it. Good points - reception staff helpful and polite, lounge furniture very comfortable. rooms are clean, breakfast was a good choice of hot and/or cold.
Not so good points - bar was only open if you went to reception to get a member of staff, restaurant was closed - reason given was that it was low season. Not much storage in the bedrooms, chairs not comfortable at all, indoor pool is a bit of a trek - cannot be reached from within the hotel building. No facilities to make tea or coffee in your room.

Room Tip: Rooms above entrance facing west, also have the larger balconies.

the hotel is in a great spot near the centre of town & has all the things you want.
the good - location, breakfast, free wifi
the bad - you have to pay for a room safe, and the bath towels are as rough as toast.

we recently stayed here for a golf trip I was told by my friend who booked the trip that we were staying in a 4 star. we arrived and the hotel from the outside looked fine and was in a ok location. upon getting inside and in the rooms my views changed. every single wall in the hotel seemed to be bright orange red green or blue. the pool area was nice and food ok but due to the décor this felt like a hotel from the 70's not a 4 star im afraid.
