Guest's review of Clube Praia da Oura


“good winter destination; ask for a room with a proper bed ”

Written on: 06/02/2016

10 days late January 2016, 2 couples in adjoining rooms, all inclusive deal via Travelzoo.
hotel: staff always friendly & helpful.
situation: overlooking the sandy beach.
food: buffet style, plentiful, wide choice at breakfast; good choice of meats, fish and salads for lunch & supper.
drinks: house wine quality poor ( this is a pity as we enjoy Portuguese wines and it is a good opportunity to showcase decent ones to a wider clientèle); other drinks good.
facilities: plenty of seating in outside gardens, terraces, good pool area but unheated so unused. advertised a sauna which sounded good as no indoor pool, but this was only available to members of the infiniti club, not for standard use. never found the tennis courts.
room: deal included upgrades to newly refurbished Deluxe pool view room - which was a studio apartment (however, our friends next door had a room which was not refurbished) the main disappointment were the beds - sofabeds! of some age and despite a topper, the springs were felt acutely. these dipped in the middle and were really uncomfortable. They were permanently down which made the rooms tight on space and with no sofa to relax on.
MGM hotels need to sort the beds as a matter of urgency, and also the astonishing 'bath cemetery' - a central area of ground where we had some activities with the doubtful pleasure of looking at a hill of redundant toilets, baths and basins we were informed had been there for at least fifteen years!

overall, we had a very good winter holiday, with warm sunshine, great location and very hospitable staff. we would have scored it higher had we been able to sleep on proper beds.
