We had been driving around the town of Mertola looking for a place to stay and one of the locals recommended Hospedaria Rita. It is located off of the main road down a little side street, if you have a car as we did, it is best to leave the car parked on the main road overnight.We had no problem doing that. The hotel is spotless and very peaceful. Our room was facing the river, we had a small balcony and a fabulous view. The room was huge with an enormous King size bed, very modern decor and a small fridge and TV (portuguese channels only). In the a.m. I watched the shepherd bring down his flock of sheep from the mountain to graze closer to the river, their bells clanged as they ran, it was almost biblical and made my day!
The breakfast was excellent and the host's very pleasant (my party speaks Portuguese)so I'm not sure about whether they speak English or not and I don't think it would matter.
