Paul do Mar Aparthotel, Calheta
Very Good8.0
Lovely hotel in quiet location by the ocean
Not as close to Calheta as thought when I booked but it was only a 10 minute drive & worth it for the 2 small sandy beaches, bars, restaurants & shops. There is not very much in vicinity of hotel but there is bar & restaurant within easy walking distance if don't want to stay in hotel every evening. Room was clean & spacious. No tea/coffee making facilities but when asked for a kettle & cups they were happy to provide. Buffet breakfast was ample and varied with choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Swimming pool was large with pool bar for drinks & food. Indoor pool also if weather not so good. We enjoyed our stay in this quiet location.
