Warm friendly welcome. Basic service/facilities but perfectly comfortable and at this time of year it was a real bargain.
I liked the location of the Recidencial O Forte, the sea views from my room were excellent, the owners were friendly and very helpfull, The food at the Master Cook restaurant was to die for, highly recomended. This is not a dislike only a comment, I would have liked more choice for breakfast,
Cleaniness of rooms and hassle free stay plus proximity to beach. Took a while to organise wiFi
The staff / owners? didn't speak English or French but they seemed to be nice people. The location is good next to the coast. This is a very very modest place to stay so the value for money isn't correctly established in our opinion. The room was humid and cold although we were there on july.
Residencial O Forte is a cosy hotel, with a familiar feel, run by a very nice couple, which was always very helpful and friendly. We stayed for two nights and had a very pleasant experience. The room was clean, the breakfast was simple but enjoyable and the location is perfect. If you don't plan to use the car, you have two beaches at walking distance. If you have a car, you can go 10 Kms south and enjoy the wonderful beach of Santa Cruz. For people who have problems with moist, the location near the sea makes it almost impossible to not notice it, even inside the room. This may be a bit uncomfortable for some.
location is excellent.Owners/staff were very friendly.
The beach access and the view, and the breakfast bread. the wind pounding on the windows, had to have the blinds down so it would not make noice (it the windows was hitting the windowframes).
The surroundings provide a good variety of experiences, either the beach and the ocean, or the lovely mountain vistas and walks.
Hotel is very attractive inside with beautiful staircases and decoration, a credit to the owners. Great view from the balcony over the river and beach. Really friendly owners made us feel very welcome.Super cafe just 200 yds away overlooking the sea. Only problem was pillows were too hard.
Family run Hotel very helpful and friendly our second stay in this good value for money hotel
Right on the beach Very noisy from the sea when windy though. Quite basic but then only 2 star.
Perfectly acceptable beach hotel. I was there for only one night as I continued my tour around Portugal. It provided a nice way-station.
You can see the sea in your room All was wonderfull
Thw seaview was fantastic.
Fantastic, there is a huge window with open views to the sea and the beach is very beautiful, the room is a little old fasgioned and so is the bathroom but it was worth every minute. The breakfast was also veery very good. The furnishing in the room was a little old fashioned and the bathroom needs an urgent renovation, veru verey low sink. But worth the experience.
nice lobby area, internet use so kids were happy the pizzeria was abysmal. the male staff were rude, ignorant, rough. order did not come as requested. got many mosquito bites. felt sorry for the young lady who worked there as she was nice. food wasnt too bad
Close to the beach and sea view from the room
Excellent position overlooking the beach.
The view was perfect. We had a great room with balcony. The breakfast staff was poor and to young. They didn't know how to handle it.
Nice rooms, ocean view Rather far to Lisboa.
Although had to leave early the next day and was unable to have breakfast, the hotl prepared a nice box with some bread, cake, yogurt and water. Room was very nice, lots of room and stylish.
New hotel with modern design!
The room was like brand new, all the appendages were in pristine condition. Very modern, very nice. There is no 'onsite' car parking, there is a hotel car park, but this is an underground facility around the next block.
Very nice hotel, modern design, very clean, friendly staff, and excellent breakfast (choice and breakfast quality definitely exceeds Portuguese average standards). Nice surprise was that the hotel even has a garage available for its guests. Good value for money!
the hotel was wonderful. located centrally in Torres Vedras it offered clean luxurious rooms along with beautiful little bars and a fairly decent restaurant. step outside its doors and experience the lovely little town of torres vedras which allowed one to absorb a real sense of portugal. the torres vedras park was lovely for having a stroll or enjoying a nice run. i had no complaints about the hotel, it was lovely!
The cleaness of the room and the fact of being a remodeled hotel. Excelent location in the city center.
The cleanliness of our room and the breakfast two separate beds
Clean and quiet. Friendly staff. No minibar in room.
Large and modern room and bathroom (bathroom a bit dark though), offering value for money. Reception was friendly and helpful on one side (made telephone call for us), although on the other side it was not possible to have an early breakfast, while another group did have early breakfast when we arrived at the breakfast room (might have been communication?). Cental location in Torres with nice view and good spacious parking facility at very close distance. They offer an excellent dinner. Very poor isolation: every word and laughing of smokers and taxi drivers outside can be heard until deep in the night (but church bells stop at night). No English news channnels on TV.
I attended the Jumping taking place on the hotel territory. I have enjoyed the extraordinary view over the Ocean. I really have to say that the breakfast was great with a large variety of products for the hotel category especially the crepes/pancakes served for breakfast and prepared "à la minute" by the cook.
wonderful view on the ocean, big swimming pool
Definitly the location: very romantic! The pool was also lovely! The dinner buffet was unecessarly expensive: 22euros for a 2 dishes buffet!!They should have an alternative.Specially because there arent any restaurantes around. Also in my opinion the hotel is geting a little old, they should refresh it with new colours!
The hotel has a superb location. The indoor pool is extremelly good. The hotel needs renovation to keep the level it had when it was new. You can tell that the facilities were upper end in the past but they now they feel old and worn out.
Hotel was virtually deserted, therefore at least very quiet. No coffee and tea making facility in the room. Standard rooms do not have air conditioning. Hotel very run down and very basic - needs a good renovation as it must have been a grand hotel at some point.......
The very pleasent location, the beach and swiming pool Is an old hotel and I think repair maintenance is needed
the ocean view
Location and swimming pool Restaurant too limited, very overpriced. Double beds only in rooms without balcony.
Nice location next to the sea. Nice buffet breakfast incluted in the room price. Rooms should be renovated. Bit old looking.
The price and the location... the pool also nice... The room temperature control and the hours of the breakfast (to late).
frendly russian man who tried to help us Its not possible to find this place,nobody in this town knows about this hotel,any signs, during 1 hour was trying to call to info phone to ask where is hotel-nobody picked up the phone. Swimming pool was very dirty, waterpump doesn work! all chaise longues were very old, dirty and some of them were broken. Place is not safety,no staff,no people,one way to contact staff- only by phone, but they often dont pick the phone. Childrens playground- couple of swings are very old,dirty and broken. From bathroom is coming smell of canalisation,floor is dirty in the room,no comfort. Its not possible to pay by card,man asked us to pay by cash,promise to send Invoice later by email, until today we still have no any invoices from them.
Staff very helpful. Location excellent. Great value.
Very clean rooms. The mattress wasn't very comfortable. There wasn't any "do not disturb" sign to hang on the door.
The room was very spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Breakfast was a littel basic but still represented terrific value for money.
The service was absolute great. The breakfast was good and the service personal at the restarant where doing everything to make our stay confortable. For me a 10! The only thing what was crazy was the internet prices, but they now but management do not want to change it !! Well , 30€ for an day internet, think management !!
parkingfacility is ok when everyone parks in a correct way. Rooms on 3th floor most quiet.
Beautiful rooms, very clean No internet available while it was promised
Cleanliness, friendliness, Wi-Fi not working
A big room and the location was excellent!
The hotel staff were great. The rooms (and other areas of the hotel) need a completely new decoration. Urgently. The main entrance of the hotel has no access to wheelchairs or baby pushchairs. I had to carry my baby's pram up the stairs.
yes, the breakfast was poor
The location is exceptional. The management, somewhat informal and familiar, seems to be working towards more professionalism. Service is friendly. Wine list at the restaurant needs more and better options Grounds and pool maintenance, a fantastic terrace over the sea, need more investment.
