Globo Hotel Portimao

I have stayed at the Globo Hotel now many times and I am always impressed with the courtesy and friendliness of the staff at all levels. The location is good , only a five minuite walk from the train station and within the heart of Portimao. The rooms are clean and great value for money. I will continue to use Globo in the future

best value for money anywhere

Great hotel in the centre of Portimao, great facilities , very clean with friendly helpful staff. breakfast a bit on the cheaper side but plenty of it and a super view over the town while you eat or drink from the bar. So all good , such a shame then that Portimao has virtualy nothing to offer , some afternoon shoping but not a lot in the evening, this is a very local, earthy, working portugese town so unless you have good reason to visit , i wouldent bother. If you do visit stay here , you cant get better value for money anywhere.

quiet city hotel

Every thing was fine, staff friendly and efficient, Views from the roof bar and restaurant fantastic. A town centre hotel, so not for a family, but fine for shopping. We were there in January and it seemed as if there was no-one else in the hotel, so very quiet. Nice change to be waited on instead of a buffet at dinner, good food nicely presented. Breakfast buffet a disappointment.

Modern, clean and friendly.

The Globo is a great hotel for short stays. It's more of what I would class as a business hotel. Sleek, modern design and a good breakfast thrown in. Couldn't fault it apart from the parking that can be very difficult and seemed to be pot luck throughout the day on all surrounding streets, and boy can the locals pack cars in. I found the best place was at the bottom of the street near the post office rather than round the back as advised. I'd probably go back to Globo but not in a rush to go back to Portimao. It's an ok place but not really geared for tourists yet which can lead to only a handful of choices to eat and drink.

Great value at Globo

We stayed at the Globo over the extended weekend of 17/18th while racing at the new Portimao circuit. We were pleasantly surprised for what is a 3 star hotel. The whole hotel has been refitted in the last 2 years and it still feels fresh. Everything is very clean and well planned. For the money I don't think you could fault it. Position wise it is very handy for exploring Portimao and is a short walk down to the waterside. Parking is tight! It is not a family holiday hotel, no pool or handy beach but great for short stays etc.

Okay I guess

The hotel is located in the city center but in order to visit the nearest beach you'll have to take a bus. By car it is easier to get there if you follow the signs saying "Hotel Globo" (many streets are one way so we went in the wrong direction many times being actually very close to the place). The breakfast (the same every day) consists of the basic and is good overall. Several fresh fruits were always available. The products of coffee and juices machine were pretty bad though. The room with a bathroom was pretty small but ok.

Fantastic decor/Fantastic Hotel

My partner and I have just returned from our 3rd trip to The Globo. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the decor of the hotel is absolutely fab. The bar especially is recommended for its amazing views and also its amazing furniture. Now that the hotel has a/c we will certainly use it time and time again. The position in Portimao is about the best you could wish for. Highly recommended to those who do not want a beach holiday

What a Gem!

The Hotel Globo is in the backstreets of downtown Portamao - the part that hasn't been re-generated. Yet it is only 100 metres from the new riverside walks and cafes. For the price I paid for my single room, I was only stopping over for one night, I didn't expect that much. Well, I was wrong. From the moment I entered the spacious and clean entrance and was courteously greeted by the smart and polite manager, I realise that I had found a small gem. My fifth floor single room was small but of sufficient size to hold a double bed, desk and draws, and a 20 inch flat screen TV. The view up-river was excellent and the bonus was nesting storks only two buildings away. The sixth floor restaurant and breakfast room has a spectacular view across the river to Ferragudo making the simple breakfast a real treat. Fantastic value for money, I'll be taking the family back!
