I just wanna start it off with the first impression of the place. When me and my girlfriend walked in we love the atmosphere of the place and we were greeted by Cristiano. Cristiano was very hopeful the whole time we were there and even offer to carry our bags to the room. When we got to the room everything... More

If you're looking for a friendly place to stay this is it. The staff is amazing, they were always ready to help and changed our room on the second day of our stay as it was a bit too light for our baby to sleep during the day. I recommend room 5, spacious room with a lovely private area out... More

The breakfast was terrible they use all the food from the day before or week before and I... More

The breakfast was average with long opening hours. They also have two chess tables and a pool table with low standard... More

Just got back from my 4 day stay at El Parador. This hotel is very simple and only good if you plan on spending your nights partying downtown, getting drunk and passing out in your bed. I say that because, although the location is very good ( close to the center, no walking distance to the beaches), the rooms are... More

This pousada is pretty big with two buildings, a main building and one on the other side of the road (where we stayed). Our room was large with a double bed and a single bed. It had a nice balcony.
