Staff are not very friendly or helpful. Had to speak to reception about our room being over run with ants which were biting us in the bed. On the 4th occasion they moved us to another room. Miles away from anywhere, theres a few cafes & restaurants in the one street town. Sae & air con are free but no...

My partner and I stayed here during half term in October and we throughly enjoyed our time there. We stayed in Room 222a which overlooked the river. It was a spacious junior suite which was perfect for us. Clean bathroom, comfortable bed and the kitchen/living area was very clean. We had no issues with the smell from the river in...

Nelo, a world-leading producer of kayaks both for elite and leisure kayakers, offers opportunities for active vacation in several places around Portugal at favorable rates during off-season periods. Nelo supplies the kayaks, but the visitor has to bring paddles and other accessories. This is an arrangement not only for the elite but also for amateurs, and can of course be...

Absolutely one of the best hotels in the area. The service is second to none and cleanliness. They welcome you like you are family. The food is great and this has become my favourite place to stay as it is quiet but not to far from all the action if you want. I cannot praise the staff enough especially Maria...

Hotel was great. Big rooms and huge bathroom. Its a fairly new hotel so will improve over time as it lacks the refinements of a traditional 4 star hotel. The area is peaceful and tranquil and every bedroom has a view of the river. Very well designed. Breakfast is a varied offering but quality of produce is sadly lacking. nevertheless,...

We stayed for 1 week at the Agua Riverside, and probably wouldn't stay again. On arrival, staff were efficient although not necessarily very welcoming or friendly. This continued throughout our stay with very little warmth or friendly words from any of the hotel staff. Although we were self catering, we decided to try the hotel restaurant on our first night...

This was our 3rd or 4th stay here and we're going back next year which tells you all you need to know. I've reviewed it favourably twice before. The hotel is out of the way, so be prepared to walk 30 minutes to either Portimao or Ferragudo or pay €5 taxi fare each way. It is not by a beach,...

Nice confortable roms. Swimming pool. But impersonal hotel with terrible food. Avoid the restaurant. Needs tidying up (small beach area atrocious!). Very noisy environment with barking dogs and cockerels! Right next to a very smelly river. Definitely Not a family destination.

We paid £500 between two of us for flights and a 1 week stay at Agua Riverside, including breakfast. We were upgraded to a junior suite (which was lovely) and made fantastic use of the self catered facilities. The staff were really attentive and friendly - a minor issue with the taxis (we usually waited around 15 minutes for a...
