we felt so welcomed and looked after at O Castelo, the owner and staff were all lovely and the rooms were perfect for us and our 3 small children. Breakfast was delicious, plenty of choice, fresh fruits and juices and bread and cakes and cereals and eggs, and you eat it on the terrace overlooking the beach. The hotel is...

We wanted to visit the Algarve region but we didn't want to stay in one of the main touristy towns. Carvoeiro was the perfect location and O Castelo a great choice and place to stay. We arrived late in the afternoon and felt very welcomed by Luisa. She answered all questions we had and it was the same experience the...

We had just one day in this beautiful Castelo Guest house (what a shame!). Our room was very clean and with a fabulous ocean view... Location is also great. You can reach beach within two minutes walk, town centre is near as well... It was very lovely stay and we will recommend this Guest House for sure!

Although fairly basic with dark wooden furniture and tiled walls (typical Portuguese) this was a perfect location. The 24 hour reception couldn't do enough for you (ice-cubes thank you) and the rooms/breakfast room were spotless. Comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and air conditioning. Definitely recommend.

We stayed 8 nights at O Castelo Guest House at the end of July. My mum and sister shared a huge bedroom with a lovely balcony, spacious bathroom and mini kitchen (no 9, lower ground floor) and myself and my partner had a beautiful room with a spacious terrace (no 3, ground floor). Both rooms were spotlessly clean, had good...

We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2016. The guest house sits a top one of the cliffs overlooking the beach and is an easy walk into town. I did not see any other hotel/accommodation that had such a good a view. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed for a holiday and all the staff were friendly and helpful....

We had a wonderful time and were extremely well looked after by the staff at the Castelo Guest House. The balcony was a real highlight of the trip and it was just lovely to sit out an look over the bay with a beer. Thoroughly recommend to anyone considering staying here!

We've been scoping this place out for years...one of those "bucket list" destinations. Basically we built our entire Portugal vacation around staying here and it was completely totally worth it! After a warm welcome we settled into a beautiful room with a STUNNING view. In a busy town, our balcony was a refuge for wine sipping and ocean gazing. We...

Stayed at Castello guest house for 5 nights. + AC, much appreciated during hot days + Beautiful view and terrace (room 3) + Excellent breakfast, had everything except Swedish hard bread + Very nice staff ... and some thoughts about Carvoeiro: - Best beach is the Praia do Paraiso, 5 minutes walk to the west.

The "O Castelo" Guest House is an historic property, with an ideal location, close to the center of Carvoeiro town and Carvoeiro beach. It offers 12 en-suite bedrooms, the majority with terraces or balconies with breathtaking sea views.

For our Guests convenience, buffet breakfast is not included in the room rate; we keep it optional, so our guests can decide if they want to prepare their own breakfast, or just ask, and we will prepare a great breakfast for you. "O Castelo" Guest House is the perfect place to relax and enjoy magnificent Atlantic Ocean views, at the same time as feeling at home, away from home ... more   less
