The only positive note is the excellent location. What a pity this 4star awarded hotel is just a shabby wreck. Very sad. The staff struggle to put on a smile and I don't blame them. The hotel needs total refurbishment and a progressive management/staff training programme. Unfortunately, we booked without looking at the reviews but never again. I am surprised...

Okay, like so many other reviews before mine this hotel is probably closer to a three star than a four. It's reminiscent of one of those really illustrious hotels that sit overlooking the ocean in Southend or Brighton, that had their day in the eighties when they were the places to be seen and were the height of luxurious accommodation....

Oddly the Brits generally give this 2 to 2.5 on Booking.com whilst the Portugese and Spanish 9 or 10 which tells you a lot about the different standards. The outside of the building looks like a 60's run down tower block with water running from the A/C staining the walls etc...They have renovated the reception which is good as that...

Its a very very run down hotel. Door knock of room was half falling off and it could not be open, you need to push it in for it to open. Everything in the room is old. Cannot hang clothes in cupboard as wood at bottom of it is rotting away and it smells, toilet flash button is half missing,...

I was quite worried before going after having red the comments here, but it turned out to be quite good value The rooms were clean and quite spacious, the mattress a bit dated but firm, the bathroom was also clean with...

It's absurd to charge 145:00 Euro for a three night stay. Dilapidated, depressing space, with grubby thread bare heavily stained carpet throughout. Was unable to connect to the internet for 3 days. Furniture and fittings outdated, all in brown, including the female receptionists uniform. Get to breakfast early,otherwise it's all cold, Good view of the beach.

I recently stayed at the Praia Mar Hotel for 4 nights. Maybe it was because I previously read all the negative reviews on this hotel, but I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff was so kind and helpful (which for me is one of the most important things) and the views of the sea are incredible! The breakfast is...

The place is cheap, and thank god it is. Everything is outdated, rooms, furniture, lifts... I shortened my stay, since there was just no way to properly work there. Internet is just not working... Breakfast was very poor also, products are not good - Surely not worth another visit, even for private purposes.

This hotel is one of the worst I've ever stayed in. The hotel decoration ie lamp and cheap vases look like they were pulled out of the garbage. They were all bent and mangled. The first room we had was with the beach view was loud because of the road and had mushrooms growing in the bathroom. *correction 4-star mushrooms...
