Excellent trip to Algarve thanks to Santa Catarina
I highly recommend Santa Catarina! 1. Free breakfast, and good variety! 2. Amazing views. I'm a budget traveler so normally the view is not important to me. I stayed 1 night in a city view room and switched the next day to an ocean view room and it was well worth the small upcharge. The decks are bigger, the rooms are bigger, the bathrooms and showers are bigger, and the view is one of a kind. Spring for the extra few euros and get an ocean view room! 3. Location! Right across from the beach and only steps from the main street with bars, pubs, cafes, restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream, & entertainment. All open even in March with no crowds! 4. Free wifi in the living room. It doesn't reach the rooms usually, but I got wifi on my deck. The showers were great with excellent water pressure. The tv didn't have many channels but did have English channels with movies. There are connections for wired internet access for computers in the rooms and in the living room and there is a computer in the living room you can pay to use. The staff is really helpful and greeted us every time they saw us and spoke excellent English. There is always someone at the front desk. I can't praise them enough! 5. Very clean and comfortable. I had an excellent stay and attribute a lot of that to the great hotel!

Great Service in the perfect location
After a less than acceptable experience in Albuferia, arriving in Portamao and being greeted by the professional courteous staff at the Santa Catarina was the perfect way to get my vacation back on track. The hotel is in a great location for the beach, eating and nightlife. I am not a fan of rooms on the first floor, but our first floor room was bright, had a balcony, and was quiet at night. the bathroom is luxurious, but the shower had amazing pressure and was ideal for getting the beach sand off of you. Our small balcony afforded us an ocean view, which was perfect for a glass of wine in the evening. The parking lot, if you have a rental car, is tight and there are not always available spots, but no worries there is street parking in the neighborhood and a municipal lot four blocks away. I must close by once again stating that the staff here is so accommodating and sincere. I'd book again...

Great hotel. So central. It is basic, good size rooms, spotlessly clean. Friendly helpful staff. Great breakfast. Close to everything!!! Second time staying and would go back again.
