TripAdvisor Review
Portugal, Europe
Armacao de Pera

The hotel is set in an ideal location, situated on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and offers spectacular panoramic views of Senhora da Rocha Beach, which is sheltered and directly accessible from the hotel. The hotel is a short 3-minute walk from numerous shops, cafés and restaurants. There are plenty of shopping venues, restaurants, bars and nightclubs 1 km from the hotel. Convenient public transport links may be found within 100 metres of the hotel. Faro Airport is at 55 km driving distance. The hotel offers guest rooms with sea or garden views for guests to freshen the day in the morning. All room are well-equipped with modern bathrooms, television with cable channels, air conditioning, hair dryer and mini bar. Guests can dine at two restaurants and a bar. Other facilities include swimming pool, spa, gym and kids club.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Kids club

Had a lovely week, all the staff are so lovely. I'm here to give a special shout out to Bianca in the Kids Club, I've never put my son into a club and she was so reassuring and my son loved her! We had a lovely holiday.

Good Hotel & Area

This Pestana hotel has so much going for it but certain area's needed improving. Firstly dont book a garden view as we were above the reception and the only gardens were of other houses and the car park - how they sell as a garden view is beyond me and the reception sincere when they say it is! Cliff top view is wonderful and plenty of sunbeds everywhere - just thrown around in no order and mixed quality but none the less it worked for us as quiet. Yes weddings most days but this didnt affect us but they seem to focus a lot on it...

Indoor pool area good - little cold but enjoyable and a nice option. Breakfast was good - strange one day they would cook an omelette another they wouldnt so a lot of staff inexperienced and young. Rooms nices inside - balcony on garden view rooms lacked anything other than concrete. We had a really nice week and the hotel was good but the area made the trip and more than happy to return.

Poor customer service

We bought two rooms and we were a party of seven. Five in one room and two in the second room. Rooms were separated by four floors...

Unfortunately, our children who were in the other room had a non-functioning air conditioner in their room. Temperatures on those days were around 34°C or low 90°F. We brought this to the attention of the desk immediately upon check-in. Their response was not helpful at all. There were no rooms to be changed to. No fans available. We suggested giving us some cots to put in our room so we could squeeze several of our children in that room so they could sleep better.Their response was basically shrugging their shoulders stating they couldn’t do anything about it. The next day in the morning when I assume the real manager arrived, he was equally not helpful. They finally “repaired” the air conditioner but this was minimal improvement at best. The second night sleep was also hit and uncomfortable. Two very uncomfortable night sleeping in their room. I will say that after probably 10 to 12 interactions both on the phone and in person at the desk, they refunded one night of the one room with a nonfunctioning air conditioner. But that refund required us to become upset and argumentative as they basically treated us like this was our fault and we should have to deal with it. We understand that problems happen. It’s the response to the customer that is abhorrent. They could not care less. You’re paying a significant amount of money for something that should be a necessity as this is a luxury and they were not helpful at all. Similar response at breakfast when I was being honest and explained that there was a party of seven that will be joining us at the table but everyone’s coming down at different times because various reasons and the host insisted that I take a small table for a party of two and that we should all be scattered around the breakfast room. Also be prepared for almost daily weddings and the subsequent music until probably midnight with each wedding outdoors. They claim it’s quiet but I guess it depends on which side of the hotel your room is facing. Overall hotel needs updating as it is somewhat old.

Quiet....most of the time.

Nice hotel. Great staff. Lovely beaches around this area.

I gave it 3 stars because its a popular hotel for wedding venues...

Stayed here 5 nights. 2 of them were interrupted by the loud music from the wedding receptions late into the night. If you book, don't get a garden wiew room.

Very good hotel!

The hotel meets all our needs! Very nice location, big hotel with convenient rooms, big pool with area for children, few clean and beautiful beaches are nearby. Excellent Wi-Fi. Comfortable beds...

Well-equipped kitchenette in the room with microwave. Wide bathroom with bidet and also a very nice balcony. We had the room with partly sea view and it was really perfect. There is also a clean small gym with the main equipment and sauna with jacuzzi and indoor-pool. Near the hotel there is a local restaurant, where the food is really perfect. Also the dinners in the hotel are good. But! Most important is the personnel. My real thanks to Morgana and Luisa and other staff. The approach is really personal, not formal. Thank you all! So really highly recommended!

Wide offer for breakfast, including porridge, pancakes, but was the same all the time. Coffee is not really good in buffet. Bar near the pool is with the high prices, but with poor offer and quality. Still all mentioned points are not spoiling the hotel. To our vision - this is a very good hotel!
