"Not at the seaside"
The best part of this hotel was the view. We could see the castle, church and through the trees, Lidl Grocery store. The pool was lovely with no towels for guests. It was shown on the internet to be seaside but was no where near the sea. We could go there by car but many without cars were stuck in a very small village to walk to restaurants at nigh […] t.

"lovely to visit this charming hotel again"
We have now stayed at this hotel many times. It may be a bit dated but it is very good value for money. We love the views. Staff friendly and helpful. Will be going back again in a few months.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On the plus side, the hotel is clean has stunning views of the castle. On the down side it is looking a bit tired, especially the bedroom. The staff are impersonal and find it difficult to smile. The continental breakfast was basic, lacking imagination, and the coffee, from a machine, was atrocious. I am unlikely to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Have stayed in this hotel many times. We love the atmosphere there. The bathrooms are a little tired looking, but there is always hot water. The best feature is the views across to the historic town of Silves.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Dated décor. Generally ok and good views of castle. Would not recommend staying here longer than a few nights. As, the local town can be explored in a few days. The local town very tired looking and run down in places.
"A very nice hotel"
12/05/13 Torhild115 Holmestrand, Norway
Hotel Colina dos Mouros is a very beautiful hotel with a great view towards the city of Silves with the castle and cathedral. The rooms are clean and beautiful and so is the view - especially in the night. The staff is very service-minded and helpful, and the restaurant serves very nice meals. The breakfast was also nice, and the garden was wonderful. And it was only 5 minutes to walk to the city centre.
"Pros. Cons. Tips."
09/29/13 Jensitolino Leeds
Hi. Only just got back from Portugal where I stayed at the hotel for 8 nights. Overall ok stay but would not stay for more than 2 nights. Here's my mini summary. Pros: fantastic views of the Castle from the balcony. Hotel generally very clean. Friendly service. Good location for visiting the algarve. Clean pool area. Orange juice. Cons Smallest of tvs with only 5 channels. 3 in Portuguese. 1 in French (TV5) and 1 in English (sky news). Mattress. Awful. Breakfast ok but the same every single day. No free wifi (payable service available in lobby or coin operated pc) Tips Lidl in walking distance with foreign newspapers available (English and German). Free wifi and Internet access in library which is 5 min walk away. It works even outside opening hours. 20 min drive to praia de rocha where you find bars beach and entertainment.

"Scenic view from the hotel"
09/12/13 GryMertz Århus
Colina Dos Mouros has the most wonderful view over Silves, the cathedral and the castle. The staff is very friendly, the rooms nice and tidy with a lovely balcony. The hotel is more for the mature couple than for families with small children or young people. Only minus is the breakfast, which is very uninspiring. Snacks and small meals, like an omelet, however, are both delicious and affordable.

beautiful location, perfect views and romance.. great hotel for character, style, architecture etc - staff were friendly and room cleaned daily. gardens are lovely, pool area great and clean hotel. only down sides are small details like only one plug socket in room difficult for recharging cameras, phones etc.. also our lights werent working properly, first room we were given was directly above the outside bar area so noisy and smokey werent going to make for pleasant stay - we were reluctantly offered a room below which was great. direct access to pool and car park areas. views were still great. already missing that coffee machine for breakfast

We stayed at Colina dos Mouros from 25th August for a week. We had a fantastic time, the staff were very friendly, helpful and always on hand. The hotel itself was very clean, fresh towels daily, air conditioning really helped at night. The decor i felt was beautiful. We also had the superb view of the castle and catherdral from our balcony. The swimming pool was in lovely surroundings and exceptionally clean, we always managed to get a sun lounger no problem. We were bed and breakfast. Breakfast was buffet and there was plenty of choice, the fresh fruit was delicious. We would definitly like to go again as we have stayed in coastal resorts in portugal before but felt the town of Silves was interesting, peaceful and the people of the town were very friendly, we also loved seeing all the storks nesting in various places. We hired a car, it was very easy to get to any location from Silves.

We took a tip from a previous review and requested a room with a view over the town. Our balcony afforded us the most beautiful view of the 13th century castle and cathedral. Room was clean and comfortable. The staff are polite, professional and helpful. We were B&B and enjoyed the continental buffet. We found the draught beer from the pool side bar a bit pricey a 3.5 Euros however a bottle can be had for 2 (until we drank them all!). This hotel is perfect for families and couples; my only minor quibble is the poolside could have been tidier from leaves and twigs etc. A nice hotel that I would be happy to return to.
"Superb Value - Ideal as a base for touring the Algarve"
09/05/13 Travellingman90 Christchurch, United Kingdom
This hotel offers superb value. It is ideally located for visiting anywhere in the Algarve with easy access to motorways and main roads (but not too close). We stayed 5 nights in early August and travelled the length of the Algarve visiting most of the main towns and beauty spots. Rooms are very comfortable and clean, breakfast is good, staff are very polite and it offered easy parking even for our campervan. Get a room at the back of the hotel as the views over Silves towards the old moorish fort and the church are just stunning. There were quite a lot of coach parties staying just the one night but this was not a problem and the hotel was always peaceful. The pool is excellent and was never overly busy even at the busiest time of the year with sunbeds readily available. Silves town is a short walk with plenty of restaurants and bars giving adequate choice. The set menu meals based around sardines or chicken piri piri are excellent value at around 10 euros. Great place for families or mature couples.
"Quiet heavenly place"
