The hotel is being refurbished and indeed needs it. Rooms very worn and not sparkling clean. The bedding and carpet were wet in the first room we were show to - must have been a leak in the room - it had been raining. Room warm enough as there was a radiator and electric fire in room. Needed it as weather was bad - snow!!!!!. A shame because it meant we did not get the superb views much of the time. Do not stay there on a Saturday they host parties there and the rooms are certainly NOT sound proof. The design of hotel meant that noise really travelled. We heard next door 'arguing' at 1am. Got a much better sleep on the Sunday though when there was no one next door and no parties. Buffet breakfast (hot and cold) adequate. Because weather conditions bad we stayed at the hotel in the evenings and had the buffet dinner 13.50 Euro, and it was OK, meats and fish choices but no clue what they were. Ok to get bottle wine with dinner on first evening and bring what's left back in the next evening. Reception staff not particularly friendly or helpful, just OK. The hotel was just OK, not great but it was very cheap for B&B and thus really good value for money. Unless you want to walk locally or on the Paul da Serra you don't gain anything by staying in Encumeada. We had a car and thought it would be a lot more convenient for the north west coast, however I don't think we gained anything because the road from Ribeiro Brava to Sao Vicente is so good and fast, yet the road up to Encumeada is quite steep and windy that is was very slow.
