About Hotel Apartamento A Floresta Do Jose

Positive Reviews

Lovely pool and garden

Several guests comment that the pool is their favourite part of the apartment hotel, and very welcome on hot summer days. There is also a children's section, so parents can be a little more relaxed. There is also a tranquil garden view from the apartment terraces.

Spotlessly clean

Guests were very pleased to find that both their rooms, and the rest of the hotel, were kept spotlessly clean at all times.

Convenient restaurant across the road

Despite the somewhat remote location there is a really good restaurant right across the road. For those who are not self-catering, or just want a break, this is a life-saver.

Negative Reviews

A few issues with the kitchenettes

It seems that there are occasionally critical items missing, or not enough of them. Also, some basic appliances do not work properly. This is not that uncommon in self catering units, and a word with the owners is usually enough to remedy the situation.

You need your own car to really enjoy the area

The apartment-hotel is in a really peaceful area, but its remoteness means that guests without their own car will have a hard time. The coast is some two miles' away, and other attractions are also distant. Since public transport is thin on the ground, guests without a car face hefty taxi fares to get around.

Décor a little tired and dated

There was an appreciation that this is not a luxurious resort, but many thought that the décor in both rooms and public areas really needs to be updated.
