      Location

      Hotel quality is adequate - just don't expect that you will get Northern Europe 4-star; it's much more typical Med package holiday 4-star. Investment is needed in all aspects of the hotel (excluding reception area), so it's clear that as long as it keeps generating cash in it's current state, further investment is unlikely.

      Close to the Carcavelos railway station and a big sandy beach. Friendly staff. Breakfast was ok, but nothing fancy.

      Some renovation required.

      Overall satisfactory; Very good view

      The manner and system of insect killer prevention fixture. This hotel was recommended as the 'overflow' from Hotel Reviera, hosting the IAME conference. Not only was the Reviera better, facilities, grade but remarkably cheaper. Pria Mar shamelessly made money - fully booked, even at ahigher rate from the conference delegates. If I was to visit Lisbon, I would stay in/near the city.

      Fantastic location with beautiful ocean views from the breakfast room/restaurant. Good sized rooms and friendly staff. Free wireless internet, which was reasonably fast.

      The hotel is a little rundown, more than you would expect from a 4 star place. However, given what I payed, the value for money was ok, just don't expect more than you paid for.

      Good pool, nice breakfast room, great location.

      Hotel needs modernising, it looks very shaby outside.

    • Couple

      Near the beach and always sunbeds available at pool. Anabel at reception was very nice.

      Paintwork needs to be improved and carpet needs to be replaced these were both very shabby.

      We spent 4 weeks in portugal and we stayed at different hotels from 2 stars to 5 stars and Praia Mar was the one that was the most dissappointing!. The location is good but from the minute we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a sullen face. The bedlinen, towelling, sheeting etc were so threadbare, the pillows so lumpy, the bed covers were torn and ink stained. In general very dissapointing and we felt that it was very poor value for the money that we were paying, we actually checked out one day earlier.!

    • Single

      Little - although the restaurant breakfast room on top floor had great views

      It is basically a very run down Hotel - very little upgrade over the years shabby at the edges, pool not heated - rooms basic - the bed uncomfortable and the shower blasted alternate hot an cold.....and no where near a claimed 4 *

    • Single

      Apart from lobby everything was run down & old. Carpets stained, decor faded, woodwork marked, shower curtain discoloured, very hard bed which squeaked with some kind of undersheet. Breakfast orange juice was actually orange cordial, not fresh oj and Coffee was nescafe out of a machine - neither of which I expect in a hotel in Portugal costing €70 per night.

    • Single

      The staff were very helpful and friendly, providing a very early packed breakfast and facilitating travel check-ins. Rooms were comfortable and all the facilities ( shower etc ) worked well. There was plenty to eat at breakfast

      Very restricted choice of tv channels. Cnn and a Russian channel were the only english speaking options-both a which had their own local agenda! So european perspectives were absent.

    • Couple
      5.0

      The location of the hotel is its best feature, its very close to the beach and restaurants. The room had a beautiful view and the upstairs restaurant even better. The restaurant dinner was ok quality but nearly no customers at the restaurant. Restaurant pricing was better for the value than the hotel as a whole. The fact that they have a pool, is fun especially for the kids. The pool area could be better maintained though as well as everything in the hotel. If you are mostly somewhere else and get a good deal with the price, the hotel could be recommended. But if you get back pains with sleeping on the floor and care about cleanliness, forget about this one.

      The bed was an absolute horror! It was just as hard as sleeping on the floor, very old lumpy pillows too. The whole hotel is very old and worn out, would need a total refurbish. The staff seemed like they didn't care about any customer service. No smiles and when asked about the bed or any other issue, they just looked at us like we were crazy and answered basically that they didn't care. Pool area is just as badly cleaned as the rooms. The bathroom smelled very bad all the stay and was not washed well even once. Pool side bar has rude service, bad selection and high pricing.

      Very poor wifi. Water temperature in shower was continously alternating between too warm an too cold.

    • Group of friends
      6.2

      Although the outside of the hotel could use some paint and maintenance, the inside was fairly nice. The breakfast was pretty good and the view from the restaurant was outstanding.

      However the bed in my room was no different than sleeping on the floor--very hard. The other problem was consistancy in the hot water. It randomly shifted from super hot to super cold no matter what time it was used..very uncomfortable.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      This hotel is in a great location; very close to the beach and public transit. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We were traveling with an eight month old baby. We had the ocean view room and the view was breathtaking. Worth the money.

      By North American standards this is more of a 2* hotel then four. While the hotel is not luxurious it is in a great location and well worth the money.
