This hotel was excellent value for money. We booked via comparison sites; then via octopustravel -and got a double room with a balcony and sea view for only £20 per night. Breakfast (buffet-cereal, tea/toast/rolls/meat and fruit etc) was included in the price. There was no additional charge for the room safe either. The room and the hotel were kept spotless.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is on the main street opposite the beach. The numerous bars/ restaurants are a five minute walk along to the other end of that street- so you are away from any night time noise.
If you fancy a trip to Alvor or Portimao there is a regular bus service from the main street.
We liked it here so much that we are looking at going back in the late summer.
