the good about this hotel is his location, a step away from the portimao beach and the main walking street where "happening". the hotel is very basic, if you get a cheap rates is a good option. breakfast is a small buffet, but good enough.

We visited hotel Santa Catarina due to the reviews on TripAdvisor. The hotel is located 5 minutes by foot from the beach and ten minutes to bars, clubs and restaurants. It is the sort of hotel to simply rest your head. Breakfast is nothing special but they do have the essentials. Service is also decent but not over the top...

I last visited this hotel two years ago. Since then the place has had a make over. The furniture in the rooms has been reduced making the rooms feel big and airy. Everything that you need is still there. Do not expect UK type breakfast but there should be something to suit everyone. No one should leave hungry. Rooms are...

Stayed here for 10 nights hotel is clean and standard for the algarve. Breakfast is ok plenty for everyone to chose from and it is open for 3 hours. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we didn't fancy any of the evening menus. Our room was fairly comfortable but in need of a couple of chairs and the balcony...
