“Nice Hotel”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This hotel is very reasonably priced. We stayed for five nights on a bed and breakfast basis. The bedroom had everything we needed, only drawback was the hanging space in the wardrobe. Room cleaned daily and linen changed. Breakfast offered plenty of choice. Very convenient to the beach and promenade. I did not find the staff very friendly, but when approached they were polite.
Overall, I liked this hotel and would not hesitate in returning.

Room Tip: No balconies on lower 5 floors

I stayed here from the 20th to the 27th and I can't see why the reviews aren't good! Our room was loverly and the little balcony was just enough as we didn't spend much time in the room. The room it's self was very nice and finished to a good standard! The breakfast was edible and their was just enough but people forget that it's a small hotel and it wouldn't be cost effective to cater to everyone's needs but their was an amazing English pub just around the corner that did the best breakfast!!! The staff... Well what a good bunch! It's the best staff I have ever been to in any hotel, all of them was so kind and helpful and went the extra mile to make sure everything was ok, we used the sauna and Turkish bath and all you had to do was let then know when you wanted to use it and they would get it switched on, the pool area was loverly, got the right amount of sun and was quiet and the pool was always clean. All in all for the money I think this is great and it's in an ideal location, people are too picky when they go on holiday and instead of finding faults they should find the good in hotels and you don't use the room much so why moan? I will be coming back again as I really enjoyed it! :) thank you

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. Location is quite good as the beach is just a few hundred metres away.
The room itself was clean. however I found the airconditioning very noisy, There is no balcony, no iron or ironing board and costs extra to use safe. Water pressure in shower was poor and temperature was lukewarm at best.
The breakfast is good. Great selection of fruit, pastries and hot food and the staff are nice.

just back from a 4 day break to see family, the hotel is very nice, clean, and the staff pleasant and helpful, our room was small but nicely decorated with flat screen tv with plenty of english channels, bathroom large and equipped with hairdrier, bath and shower. breakfast was great eggs, bacon, beans, toast and all the usual continental fare. the pool was good with sunbeds available, excellent location just off the beach near the many restaraunts and shops. we stayed 27th/30th june and the hotel was busy but was very quiet no entertainment but it didnt effect our stay, probably suits some people. car parking available in laybys adjacent to hotel all in all good value for money and would defo stay again.

Room Tip: ask for balcony and sea view.

Reviewed 30 June 2014

I recently stayed at the Quarteira Sol Hotel in Portugal 22nd-26th June. After reading some of the reviews on here I was slightly dubious; needless to say this didn't stop me booking at a very cheap price and hoping for the best.
From the word go the service was second to none; although the reception staff weren't fluent in English they did everything they could to help us, including printing off transfer details for us free of charge.
Our room was immaculate; beautiful bathroom and a twin room as I was staying with my mum. We were facing inland but this didn't spoil our stay; we slept well every night with minimal noise. The breakfast was not really to my taste; but could not fault the range of foods available.
The beach is within a minutes walk and has to be the cleanest I have ever seen!

All in all I'm glad I didn't believe everything I read on here. I had the nicest break and would go back again in a heartbeat!!!
Thank you so much for making my stay so lovely!

Room Tip: If you would prefer a certain view; just ask at reception and they do everything they can to help!

Following a 4 night stay at this hotel staff very friendly and go the extra mile however rooms disappointing. Dont bother with the food. A must is the Indian Shalamar 100 yards down the road excellent.

Reviewed 19 October 2013

Arrived 13th October 2013. Can't fault the staff. However, the problem was the cold pool which was advertised as "heated". A cold pool in October is not good. The Don Jose, a 3 star hotel manages to heat their pool but a 4 star hotel, The Quarteria Sol can't. The excuse? It's Winter. Not for me it isn't. I paid for heated, got cold. There is a Turkish sauna (steam) and a dry sauna. No Health and Safety. Slippery floors and no phones in case of emergency. Don't swim or sauna alone. In case. Wifi is 3 euros for half an hour, Exactly. In lobby. Not in room. The plus side; very clean. Expresso in breakfast, excellent. Bread at breakfast good. Not much else to say. Fruit was dying. No bananas, mostly old apples. Dark lobby. Nobody in attendance at pool, pool bar or anywhere except in lobby and at breakfast. Will probably go back when they heat the pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a sun facing balcony. We had a city facing balcony and felt shaded and isolated.
