2/10 Poor

It was the worst stay I have had in years. No heating in the room and the weather was not warm as usual, so I literally freezed in that room for 4days. Owner not responsive and rude. No hot water for 3 days. No wifi working due to some works on the street. they are not prepared for any kind of unexpectable situations or weather. The shower leaked every time you took a shower. the room was old and the fireplace was stinking. They advertise it as soundproof walls but you can literally hear everything, and having an old wooden door does not help as well. Awful accomodation and owner. Would never recommend someone to go there.

8/10 Very good

Small establishment with no office/reception, Our room was OK but a few changes would make much improvement. I tried but could not make my suggestions to anyone. Shared kitchen not available during ongoing refurbishment. Cafe/restaurant very cheap for full meals. Up in the hills with excellent views. Recommend a hire car because bus service is limited.

Secret places with excellent Portuguese cuisine
Great choice! Reasonable prices, incredibly tasty and inexpensive food, attentive and very helpful staff. Stunning views of the ocean and mountains, fresh air, birds singing, ambient music and ... complete relaxation. Walking, relaxing by the pool, patio, excellent restaurant with grill-fireplace styled as a chalet are available. As a result I stayed here much longer...

Align expectations before booking
There is so much potential in this place! First the really good things: Marco and the rest of the staff were great! They attended to all our needs. Cars are available for rent very easily and cheaply - just ask! The view is stunning! Unfortunately that's about it. A lot of the things listed on wasn't there, and if we had known, we would have booked another hotel, since we didn't have a car. There restaurant was closed, and there was a very limited food supply. There was a microwave and a fridge, but we had to ask for cutlery - which, when used, we put on the balcony, because we had to rinse it in the bathroom sink and then had nowhere to put it. The bathroom had no door and a glass wall - I love my girlfriend, but sometimes you need privacy. The other toilets on the premises didn't work... Toilet paper had to be thrown in the trash, which is fine, except the trash wasn't emptied. In fact, our room wasn't cleaned once in the four days we were there. The only trash can was the tiny one in the bathroom, so we also had to come up with another solution for trash. The water from the shower ran into the living room/kitchenette and soaked the floor. And there was only one light switch, which turned on ALL the light - not great when there is no bathroom door/wall and you need to go to the bathroom at night! We did still have a pleasant stay, just make sure to align expectations before booking.
