Just returned from 9 nights at the Casablanca inn was not impressed the room we stayed in was very dark and damp the bathroom had no extractor fan so had to leave the door open. They had cats and a dog in the hotel the cats spent most of the time on the seating area I was not impressed how this hotel has got 4 stars I do not know, This is the first time we have stayed here and will not be returning, the swimming pool leaves a lot to be desired and definitely need more sun beds on the terrace for the amount of guests. We usually stay at the Alcazar hotel which is only 3 stars but much better.

Myself and my husband have just returned back from our hoilday sept 2013, this is our second time we have stayed at Cassablanca Inn, the room we had was cleaned every day with fresh white soft towels, and clean bed linen. The bathroom is quiet spaceous and does have a hairdryer so no need to bring one, The room we had was small but nice it also had A/C which worked good and tv and fridge, and we had a lovely sea view. Which is just 5mins walk so not far at all to the beach.We went B/B and the breakfast is now a buffet style rather like last time when you had to order, I prefer the buffet as you do have a choice for hot or cold breakfast and plenty to choose from and we both found the food very nice.The staff there are friendly and will do there best to help you if you need it, the receptionist was lovely and remembered us from last time. The bar staff were also really nice and freindly. The pool is small but lovely, and always cleaned every day, only a few sun beds round the pool area but there is also a sun terrace with more sun beds for you. We had a lovely relaxing hoilday and would go again.

Room Tip: If you need to change your stirling there is no bureaux exchange so you need to go to the bank and y...

We stayed here in may2011, and it was very good .we decided to return this September.We were very happy with the room which was at the front of the hotel ,and sea view. The room was kept very clean with bed linen changed very frequently,also the towels. What lets this hotel down big style is the kitchen staff. The first time we went breakfast was cooked to order and was very good.This is now buffet which is ok as long as long as it is run properly.People were always waiting for something, nobody was keeping an eye an food needing re-filling, it was always guests to ask for whatever was missing.We were half board and the evening meals were very poor,who ever was doing the cooking clearly was not up to the job,bearing in mind this is supposedly a 4*Hotel.We did see a lad y deliver food taken out of a cool box in a Lidyl carrier bag! Needless to say we will not return which is a shame as the accomadation cleanliness and location are great.

Room Tip: We had room number 201 which was at the front of the hotel very good size massive en-suite and quiet

stayed here for a week with my boyfriend in august, unfortunately we were given a tiny room at the back on the ground floor which had metal grills on like a prison and the room was very dark subsequently, I am sure the upstairs rooms were nice and bright and they had nice balconies, break fast was just adequate but the location is brilliant, right in the middle of everything and 5 mins walk from the beach

Have tried to register a negative review on hotel website without success. Stayed in July for a week. The service and quality of what was offered at breakfast was very poor, after a couple of days very demoralising. Tables were not cleaned and re-set and after 9am difficult to find a clean table. Everything ran out and painful to watch the half-hearted efforts to replenish basic items, cups, glasses etc. There were other problems.

Room Tip: I think being Portugese helps.

Our room was small and cramped, and very noisy from the apartments across the road. The beds and pillows were lumpy, so not a good night's sleep. The food was awful, and both of us had upset stomachs for the entire week. I think some of the food was recycled, and not fresh. There were not enough sun beds, so we could not get by the pool. For the money we spent, we would have done a lot better in some of the nearby hotels, which I went to look at, and was so annoyed that we were stuck in the dismal Casablanca. I would not go back again.

Room Tip: Don't go at all.
