    First trip to Europe

    Stay was fantastic! Great location on the beach! Breakfast each morning was amazing! Sunsets from balcony were unbelievable and stunning. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The room was spacious and very clean. The pool was a little chilly but for the time of year that was understandable. We still managed to take a dip everyday. Walking the beach everyday was a real treat. We have enjoyed our stay so much we booked another two nights to extend our time at Hotel Oriental. Would definitely return with friends and family.

    Very Nice

    This is a great hotel, right where you want to be, in Portimão, on the beach front, and you can also enjoy sitting around the pool overlooking the beach. We were very lucky to have found this place and spent the last four days of our holidays here.

    Excellent hotel and hospitality.

    Large comfortable rooms with lots of amenities. Spacious balcony and furnishing standard is high. Very attentive service and staff. Very good buffet breakfast. Missing a bathtub and would be nice in a leisure hotel, the main guestroom entrance doors could do with some more sound insulation. So overall it is very comfortable but would help to modernise sound insulation around the doors and windows.

    Right on the beach

    AP Oriental Beach is located as it's name suggests, right on the beach. It's at the end of the busy Priai Da Rocha main street, which means it's nice an quiet at night. A 10 minute walk into the centre of all of the restaurants and bars. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Portmao area.

    Staff were wonderful and very welcoming. Room 401 was excellent. Fabulous balconies with good views of the beach, great size room, very clean and comfortable. The only thing that let this down was no coffee in the room, just tea. Parking on site was limited, though got free parking on adjacent street to the hotel.
