    Great Time in Portimao

    Great time in Portimao. AP Oriental was great this was our second time staying there.

    We’ve had a lovely stay and we’ll definitely come back once everywhere opens up again. The view from our room is the best that we’ve had in our years of travelling abroad. The reception and restaurant staff are extremely helpful and are always asking whether we are having a good time. The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring Praia da Rocha, Alvor and Carveiro. The brief time we spent sunbathing due to the changeable weather was enjoyable. Again lovely views and attentive staff. Thank you Ap Oriental Beach, for making my pre-40th birthday celebrations memorable x

    Great location

    We were given a room that was down half a flight of stairs, so beware if you're caring heavy luggage. Breakfast was good and varied but fresh pastries would have been welcomed

    Would definitely return if beds more comortable

    Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the stay. Staff gave a lovely welcome and were very informative. Wonderful, relaxing resort with immaculate cleanliness, dining room and food quality and beachfront view. Slightly let down by the beds and linen since they weren't very comfortable and bed sheet setup was too simplistic - only a bed sheet without a light duvey, this should be improved.

    Overall, a really good hotel. Location is fantastic, with direct access to the beach. Breakfast was quite good. Would recommend. Things that we found unacceptable for a 4 star hotel: - Check-in - it was a terrible experience. We waited for about 1h, at one point there were 4 other workers looking idle at the person on the computer checking in. - No parking - had to drive around and pray for a place. This ruined the experience. - coffee is an extra for breakfast (!!) - juices were not fresh on breakfast.

  • 6.0.Good

    Avoid the food buffets.

    We enjoyed the beach, pool, grass sun umbrellas —-and the great location, plus the balcony with partial ocean view. (Jr suite) The lobby is pretty, and the staff is friendly upon check in. My husband ordered ice to the room. He was charged at the door for service of 5 euro. Mini bucket! This was our 8th hotel in Europe and none of them had charged for ice. He usually tips well, but this time he obviously didn’t ! Breakfast was included in the rate, but the buffet was really lame, low quality items, especially meats and breads. Coffee was from a machine. Espresso had instant crystals in the bottom of the cup, and the cappuccino tasted like sweet convenience store fake-ness. It felt like an all inclusive without much included. We noticed many guests eating the dinner buffet, too. Glad we avoided evenings here altogether, since many nice restaurants are walking distance on the boardwalk and charming street.

    We have a lovely stay at Hotel Oriental. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was good, with a great view of the beach. We had a small issue with the air-con unit but the staff were able to sort that out for us.
