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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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 surroundings provide a good variety of experiences, either the beach and the ocean, or the lovely mountain vistas and walks.
Family run Hotel very helpful and friendly our second stay in this good value for money hotel
location is excellent.Owners/staff were very friendly.
Warm friendly welcome. Basic service/facilities but perfectly comfortable and at this time of year it was a real bargain.
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
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.
Excellent position overlooking the beach.
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
Thw seaview was fantastic.
Nice rooms, ocean view Rather far to Lisboa.
Right on the beach Very noisy from the sea when windy though. Quite basic but then only 2 star.
Close to the beach and sea view from the room
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.
