3,3 Mediocre
Pros: The view out of room
Cons: Arrived day 1 to an awful smell from the shower we didn't use the shower due to smell. Repoeted to receptionist who did nothing. Went down the next morning to report again and this time the same lady actually took action. She agreed the smell was unacceptable and after 1 night of paying full rate for a smelly room we were moved. At checkout (we left a day early) i challenged the cost of the first night due to unacceptable standard. Guy at reception said he couldn't help as he wasnt there but his boss would email me. 2 days later still no email.

Pros: The bed was super comfortable and room very spacious. We also appreciated the restaurants buffet.
Cons: The hydromassage in the bathtub didnt work and the room was very cold when we entered. There are only two small lifts in the hotel so since we were on the sixth floor it took a long time to get into one, we waited too long during the breakfast time to get down so we had to go by the stairs.

5,4 Okay
Pros: Location, nice look from outside, having a pool, direct connection to the beach.
Cons: No parking available even if we were able to pay for it. There were a sand park right next to the hotel but there wasn’t a proper connection, the passage was blocked... but the fix is so simple (something like opening a meter or two in the wooden access that goes from the backdoor to the beach), I don’t know why they didn’t provide a basic access. Pool floor was very slippery, not even good for walking. Room furniture has nothing to do with the hotel design or decoration, it was old and fugly! After we payed we saw the pricing table on our apartment door, it was stated there that a T1 was between 50 and 210, but we ended paying more than that... they took advantage of us.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Clean, massive, sight to the pools and the sea. Quiet, warm and comfortable!
Cons: The fact that you need to pay for breakfast. I understand that one may have to pay for main courses, but not breakfast. And it’s an absurd 7,50€ per person.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The location was awesome, right on the beach.
Cons: The TV was too small and should have more movie channels like Holywood, or Fox movies or any other movie channels ( in English) because there were too many channels in German and in Spanish. The SPA was closed for maintenance.

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Good value for money. Friendly staff. Central location

7,1 Good
Pros: Knew where this apartment was located as I have been to Monte Gordo many times, so no surprises. We were able to check in early and the room was available immediately. Clean and tidy on arrival. Staff were very helpful and were great when Portugal locked down due to Covid-19; although reception staff in masks and surgical gloves was a bit disconcerting but understandable. Communal areas were nice and clean although given the circumstances we didn’t use them.
Cons: The room was a little tired but perfectly comfortable and suited our needs. We were on the shady side so got no sun on the huge balcony, but we didn’t ask to move. Could have done with a toaster, oven and a chopping board but otherwise adequately equipped. No complaints to be honest as we got what we paid for. Would certainly go back.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: It's not the most modern building in town, but it's still comfortable et very practical. As it was mid January and the hotel wasn't busy, I was kindly upgraded from a studio to a 1 room appartement.

Cons: Kitchen facilities not quite adequate enough for self catering. Smaller pans, some bowls to use in the microwave, an electric kettle and a toaster would make all the difference. especially as it is quite expensive to stay here and no breakfast provided. There is no bar or restaurant on site. The sushi bar on site is private and nothing to do with the hotel.No hairdryer! this is a nuisance when travelling with only hand luggage.

Cons: Nothing
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is a three star and offers unbelievably good value for money. We had two nights with dinner and breakfast included. Breakfast range was as good as many 4 star offerings and there we a choice of mains and starters each evening and the food quality was excellent. A wide range of good Portuguese wines was available at low prices. We really felt that we had robbed them when we got the bill and that´s not a feeling I get very often these days! Staff were friendly and helpful, the bar offers "Happy Time" drinks €7.50 for a large beer and a vodka diet coke! I have lived in the Algarve for 12 years and have never seen people stand up and start singing Fado in the bar when there was live music. This happened on Saturday evening and was fantastic.
Cons: Nothing to dislike. OK it´s three star but it´s a good three star so provided you set your expectations accordingly everything is fine
8,0 Excellent
Pros: breakfast as usual was great, a very varied choice from full English to Continental and everything in between.
Cons: The bar prices are far too high, they have a beautiful bar area which is mostly empty, if they reduced the prices considerably it would be a wonderful place to meet fellow travelers, instead the guests all walk down to the town to enjoy a drink at considerably cheaper prices, it is a great shame. They already have the costs of stocking the bar, cleaners etc. they may as well sell some of it.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The Casablanca Inn has lovely staff who were on hand to help with anything. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Showers were powerful and water was very warm.
Cons: Shower wasn’t fixed and was only a hose feature which could be put up to a fixed height. There was a flimsy shower curtain which was very annoying when trying to shower. TV was very very basic and if staying for a longer time or with children, this would have been really inadequate.
10,0 Excellent

2,5 Mediocre
Pros: On site parking (even though the spaces were small). It's sad to say that probably the best bit was the fact that they have a really nice bakery literally on the other side of the road (Andrade Pastaleria).
Cons: The landlord was quite rude and almost seemed unwelcoming. Bath roof had lots of mold. Definitely smaller room than as per the pictures. Overall the room seemed dirty...one night we were woken up by a cockroach and loads of insect bites. Based on our experience we will definitely not be repeating here.
7,5 Good
Pros: Free parking and wi-fi. The room is pretty spacious and the bed quite comfortable. You have everything you need (towels, extra blankets and pillows, air conditioning, tv...). There is also a kitchen that you can use (I think) and laundry service (we didn’t use it either, I cannot tell you how it works). You also have a balcony with clothlines. If you’re looking for something luxurious this is not the place :) Otherwise, it is a worthy.
Cons: Even though there is a nice balcony, we couldn’t really enjoy it because of the traffic (too much and too close). That was not nice. Still, no problem to sleep (windows closed though).

8,0 Excellent
Pros: This was 1 of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. Jose & Theresa were so friendly& helpful . THe guesthouse itself was beautifully laid out & the rooms were spotless. Sunloungers in front garden, little terrace with tables & chairs, a truly lovely breakfast with the most scrumptious fresh rolls & coffee. Nothing was too much even finding out train timetables for us & finding alternative accomm for us when we made an impromptu decision to stay an extra 2 days. Cant praise this place enough.
Cons: It's on a roundabout with 5 roads leading off it but honestly ( & I'm a really bad sleeper) it doesn't cause a problem as the double-glazing is very effective & ear plugs guarantee a good sleep. The + side of the location is that it's a 3 min. walk to the train station fro where you can get a ticket to Faro for 4 euro pp!!! Taxi works out at approx 55-60euro.

5,4 Okay
Pros: Location, nice look from outside, having a pool, direct connection to the beach.
Cons: No parking available even if we were able to pay for it. There were a sand park right next to the hotel but there wasn’t a proper connection, the passage was blocked... but the fix is so simple (something like opening a meter or two in the wooden access that goes from the backdoor to the beach), I don’t know why they didn’t provide a basic access. Pool floor was very slippery, not even good for walking. Room furniture has nothing to do with the hotel design or decoration, it was old and fugly! After we payed we saw the pricing table on our apartment door, it was stated there that a T1 was between 50 and 210, but we ended paying more than that... they took advantage of us.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Clean, massive, sight to the pools and the sea. Quiet, warm and comfortable!
Cons: The fact that you need to pay for breakfast. I understand that one may have to pay for main courses, but not breakfast. And it’s an absurd 7,50€ per person.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: The location was awesome, right on the beach.
Cons: The TV was too small and should have more movie channels like Holywood, or Fox movies or any other movie channels ( in English) because there were too many channels in German and in Spanish. The SPA was closed for maintenance.

Cons: breakfast room was a bit cramped - lots of people - tables very close to each other. a little bit old fashioned
3,3 Mediocre
Pros: The view out of room
Cons: Arrived day 1 to an awful smell from the shower we didn't use the shower due to smell. Repoeted to receptionist who did nothing. Went down the next morning to report again and this time the same lady actually took action. She agreed the smell was unacceptable and after 1 night of paying full rate for a smelly room we were moved. At checkout (we left a day early) i challenged the cost of the first night due to unacceptable standard. Guy at reception said he couldn't help as he wasnt there but his boss would email me. 2 days later still no email.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was excellent well presented and plenty of it bar service very good with efficient staff and very pleasant reception staff
Cons: Living in Portimao would have been nice to watch Portimonense win at football ( Joking) but they lost seriously a longer stay but due to family work commitments 4 night's was all we could manage

10,0 Excellent

8,8 Excellent
Pros: The bed was super comfortable and room very spacious. We also appreciated the restaurants buffet.
Cons: The hydromassage in the bathtub didnt work and the room was very cold when we entered. There are only two small lifts in the hotel so since we were on the sixth floor it took a long time to get into one, we waited too long during the breakfast time to get down so we had to go by the stairs.

2,5 Mediocre
Pros: On site parking (even though the spaces were small). It's sad to say that probably the best bit was the fact that they have a really nice bakery literally on the other side of the road (Andrade Pastaleria).
Cons: The landlord was quite rude and almost seemed unwelcoming. Bath roof had lots of mold. Definitely smaller room than as per the pictures. Overall the room seemed dirty...one night we were woken up by a cockroach and loads of insect bites. Based on our experience we will definitely not be repeating here.
7,5 Good
Pros: Free parking and wi-fi. The room is pretty spacious and the bed quite comfortable. You have everything you need (towels, extra blankets and pillows, air conditioning, tv...). There is also a kitchen that you can use (I think) and laundry service (we didn’t use it either, I cannot tell you how it works). You also have a balcony with clothlines. If you’re looking for something luxurious this is not the place :) Otherwise, it is a worthy.
Cons: Even though there is a nice balcony, we couldn’t really enjoy it because of the traffic (too much and too close). That was not nice. Still, no problem to sleep (windows closed though).
