I got a VERY good deal for this hotel so wasn't expecting too much, but was very pleasantly surprised. I had sea views and a double room with bar fridge and free use of the in-room safe.
I thought breakfast was to be charged at 4 euros a day but it turns out that was complimentary too. Nothing flash there, but it's still a free breakfast!!
It's not located right in the thick of the main street, but I see that as a positive thing. It's only a quick stroll down there though.
Downsides: there's no pool. I went at the end of the high season so wasn't too worried about this. I'm sure there's access to other pools if you're grabbing a drink or something there. Perhaps the Hotel Algarve across the road.
: they play music in the corridors. While this isn't booming like a night club or anything I'm a very light sleeper so could still hear it. I did mention it to the staff on checking out so hopefully they'll adjust it.
