“Lovely clean hotel”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

I have just come back from the Casablanca Inn hotel. The hotel itself you cannot fault for cleanliness, maids clean the rooms everyday and the towels are changed every day. Staff friendly, except the dining room waitresses can be a bit miserable. Talking about the dining, food is okay, but not much of a choice. The breakfast is buffet style, and the eveing dinner is waiter service. There are a couple of cats running all over the place , but being fair never saw them in the dining area. The hotel is very dark especially in the bar, and there are a lot of older people that tend to go there. The hotel has entertainment on tuesday and thursdays - man on an organ. Area good location, town about 5mins walk from hotel. Not much going on in the area so i would say not for the under 30s. Beach 5mins walk. Next town is Villa Real San Antonio 5euros by taxi or by cycle about 25mins. Walking about 50mins. .

Room Tip: All rooms bsically the same i was in room 118 and the terrace overlooked the front of the hotel and...

the casablanca hotel was very good,clean rooms which were nice.food good plenty of choice for main evening meal.very friendly & helpful staff.the only problem we had was the paths & roads are cobblestoned which is not very good if you cannot walk.it was very quiet nothing much to do so it was relaxing.not many shops.you can get a taxi to vila real for 5euros & then get the ferry for 1-70euros to spain ayamonte which was very nice.plenty of cafe bars.

Room Tip: the rooms on the front can be noisy has it is over the seating outside for smoking & drinking

Don't go to this hotel.......stayed 12-19 April 2012
It's full of pensioners (I'm 63!) the rest were much older!
Drab, dark, dated, no acceptable entertainment, cats wandering all over the hotel.
Very poor menu, overworked staff, reps are not in residence, we should have known then!
It's definitely not 4*, it's barely a 3*....DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

just returned from casablanca inn on a half board basis, the hotel is spotlessly clean the staff friendly and helpful. the meals are what you would expect from a three star, the breakfast was a buffet, predictably frankfurters, bacon and such, the evening meals can be a little unusual but with a choice of two starters three main courses, usually two meat dishes and one fish dish, and a choice of fruit ice cream or a sweet the price was very good value, but if you prefer bed and breakfast there are many restaurants nearby, this is one hotel i will definitely return to

Room Tip: the rooms in the back are the most spacious

The stars over the entrance state that this hotel is 4 star but having in stayed in other 4 star hotels in the Algarve this is definitely not up to that standard. The public areas are clean, the room was a good size as was the bathroom and the hot water plentiful at all times of the day. Towels were changed daily. When I let the water out of the bath it came back up through the floor and flooded the bathroom floor. The storage in the bedroom was exremely sparse for 2 adults, no where to put the cases once unpacked. The balcony got the sun all day. The hotel is adjacent to a concrete play ground which is brightly lit all night long, the room had blackout curtains but I would rather not have stadium lights 3 foot away from my bedroom window.
The reception staff were helpful and pleasant.
The HUGE disappointment for me was the breakfast which I can only describe as something less than a service station. There was no variety one day to the other, fresh pineapple everday which was great but tinned peaches and pears, WHY NOT fresh oranges ? which are abundant in every single field. The meusli and cornflakes were at the chepeast end of catering multi quality. The bread rolls were good but the other offering, a cross between a coirssant / brioche were also the type you get 50 in a sack at the supermarket. I had the yoghurt on the first day but it tasted bad to me, there was also a pink yoghurt which I saw no one eat and yet it seemed to be put out each day. The fruit juices were cheap squash type, lurid orange and sickly sweet. As other visitors have stated the beans were lukewarm.

The whole impact is cheap and sparse and money saving and more 2 star than 4 star.

Its a shame because the staff were working really hard and all they need to do is to get some fresh fruit and up the standard a small amount to achieve a lot more.

We booked at the start of 2012 and got a good deal on Expedia with Monarch Flights, if I had paid the advertised rate for this hotel I would have been really disappointed.

Montegordo was very quiet and at this time of year it was common to find we were the only 2 people in the reastaurants in town. It is a good base for exploring locally but is a bit of a concrete jungle built to exploit the beach as opposed to authentic portugese charm.. in Winter it is full of Dutch tourists. We really struggled to find anything authentic in Montegordo, luckily Castro Marim, Tavira and Vila Real da St Antonio make up for the lack of charm.

I would not chose to stay at Casablanca again.

Room Tip: if you dont want the lights shining in all night go round to the back of the hotel.
