We specifically selected the Hotel Oriental due to it being a smaller establishment and also for its location, and how right we were to do so. Okay, so the hotel is old and could do with a refurbishment, our room, 203, was in need of an upgrade, but it was extremely clean, tidy and had a lovely side view of... More

We chose this hotel because it had the best ratings and location of all the places available when we wanted to visit in September. It turned out to be just lovely, and we especially liked being able to sit poolside or on the beach without having to work to get there. We paid extra to have an oceanfront room and... More

I placed a review regarding the smell in my room on a recent stay. I have been offered a 10% refund which I have accepted. I have asked the hotel to investigate the smell so that future guests do not have the same issue.

We were just passing through Portimao and just stayed for one night on Sept 14...hotel is large and oldish. In a good location but worst issue was the fact that the hotel had "4" parking spaces and so you had to drop off your luggage and then drive around the town trying to find a spot on the road. We...
