Stayed here with my partner for a week from 13/4/11. A nice hotel on the beach,great view from the room. Staff excellent,especially Svetlana,who never stops smiling.
Three things spoilt the week for us, firstly the food is very basic (yellow soup every night,just called something different...lol), and very little choice. Secondly, the hotel is very busy with Portugese pensioners, (who we are led to believe,get 3 holidays a year paid for by the government). They are very rude and push and shove each other,and anyone else to get to the food....lol.Then tend to sit on the terrace without buying a drink,talking very loudly until there FREE daily trip is ready.Finally the entertainment is pretty dire,only on for 3 nights while we were there.
As for food,we recommend a lovely place called Fantasia,just a ten minute walk along the promenade,great food and happy hour from 9.30 to 10.30 pm.
Very few bars in Quateria,but plenty of coffee bars and shops,and very cheap.
Sadly we will not return.
