About São Roque 5179 AL

The São Roque AL is a small pension style property in the heart of Portimão. It aims to be guests’ “home away from home”, and prides itself on providing genuine and personalised service.

The rooms are basic, but comfortably furnished. Each room has its own balcony, as well as cable TV, air conditioning and Wi-Fi.

The pension is in a compact four story building and features Wi-Fi in the public areas and a reception open 24 hours.

Only breakfast is available on-site, but its central location means that the São Roque AL is near an abundance of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Positive Reviews

Cosy family style atmosphere and service

An overwhelming majority of guests comment on how the owners and staff create an exceptionally friendly family-like atmosphere, and go far beyond the call of duty to make sure that their guests are well cared for and feel at home. Though somewhat overused, the term “nothing is too much trouble” is mentioned again and again.

Spotlessly clean

Many guests mention that rooms are kept spotlessly clean and tidy by housekeeping. No reports of problems on that front, which is quite exceptional.

Very convenient central location

The location, in central Portimão, is described as ideal for anyone who needs to access city amenities. While not on the beach, great beaches are not too far away, reached either by car or public transport.

Negative Reviews

Four storeys and no lift

This could obviously be a big problem for people with mobility problems. It is a four storey building, so if you are on the top floor you could face a climb up three flights of stairs. The stairway is narrow and passing can be a problem. If nothing else, it has been mentioned that this can actually be seen as a positive - by causing people to interact and be friendlier and more social.

Neighbourhood a bit noisy

Due to its central location noise can be a bit of an issue - mostly from the street traffic. Light sleepers may want to bring earplugs.

Room décor somewhat dated

While guests indicate that the rooms are both clean and comfortable, many go on to say that the décor is somewhat tired, dated and in dire need of revitalisation.
