    Liked the location, perfect if you are surfing in Carcavelos.

    A rather old hotel, with newer alternatives nearby...

    Fabulous

    During our stay at the hotel the personnel waspolite, correct with us, could always answer the questions, The rooms were always clean, the towels were clean. The hotel is not far from the beach and from the train station, whioch makes staying there comfortable.

    The food for breakfast was the same during all the period and it was a bit difficult, not many fresh fruits.

    The staff were friendly but the hotel is very old and in need of an upgrade, there is a new hotel very close by which would be much better value for money and is very nice.

    The age and general condition of this hotel is not accurately reflected on the website.

    Very good

    Restaurant excellent, good value and food of good quality.Facilitated our holding our baggage and use of facilities due to our late flight.

    We stayed on floor 7 and found noise from the Restaurant on floor 8 disturbing from 7 o'clock in the morning onwards, footsteps, chairs moving and general noise. The temperature of the shower was dangerous varying from scalding hot to cold frequently every time we used it. While the room was clean and cleaned daily the carpet was very stained. The entrance to the hotel foyer was shabby and littered for the whole week we were there.

    The hotel is located in a position really close to the beach and not far from Estoril and Cascais. I spent only 2 days in the hotel, and I've chosen it because during my stay there it was the cheaper one, the other Hotels had crazy prices! My room was located at the 7th foor with the view on the back of the hotel. The breakfast is good and the Hotel resturant is located at the 8th floor with a beautiful view on the ocean.

    Even if its category is 4 stars hotel, its fornitures are quite old and not well maintained. It need refurbishement. I found the following problems: 1) the shower temperature went from cold to very warm continuously; 2) the water from the sink flowed with much difficulty; 3) the bidet's tap was clogged; 4) the WiFi at the floors doesn't work properly...only at the ground floor I could connect my laptop.

    Location is great. clean comfy rooms. great diving board in the pool! good views at breakfast and close to the beach.

    Breakfast was great but a change in the menu over 2 weeks would have been nice.

    The localisation is very nice. View of the sea for the breakfast.

    The Hotel needs a refresh soon.

    Room was great with atlantic ocean view. Carcavelos beach is the best of the area & in walking distance from hotel.

    Breakfast could be more rich.

    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.

    Very good

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

    Some renovation required.

    Very good

    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.

    Good

    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.

    Hotel needs modernising, it looks very shaby outside.
