Quietness Policy
  • We want quietness for our hotel. Please respect this when arriving late at the hotel.
  • External Noise: The hotel is located in a quiet zone. Nevertheless, please consider that Praia do Vau location (as you can see in Google MAPS) is much more isolated and quiet than other locations such as Praia da Rocha (20 min. walk) or Portimão but during the high season (15 of July to 15 of August) it's possible that some surrounding hotels will make some night shows that eventually could make some noise but fortunately those shows typically end up early.
