  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A lovely large guest house with rooms attached to the main building as well as in annexes. A very well kept pool area. The room was spacious and light with a shared verandah as well as a fully equipped small kitchen area with microwave and fridge. Excellent Manager and staff with a good selection of both hot and cold food for breakfast served in a lovely breakfast area overlooking the pool. There is an honesty bar and snacks available throughout the day. Close to the seafront and walkable to bars and resaurants. Would definitely return

    Boa guesthouse

    Guesthouse com boa localização, quarto confortável e café da manhã muito bom. O único inconveniente é que na reserva dizia que tinha ventilador no quarto, mas chegando lá não havia nada.

    Friendliest Guesthouse you can imagine

    Expetionally friendly and comfortable guesthouse, including an excellent breakfast freshly prepared to order plus fresh fruits, cereals etc. Weston and the other team members are really caring for the wellbeing of the guests, from reception, information on anything you can imagine, organising transport, taking care of laundry and printing, and even getting up at 5 in the morning to ensure the arranged transfer works. Location is great for the beach and the Boardwalk complex, while beeing very calm. Rooms are spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. Highly recomended!
