Stayed at the Muthu Club Praia da Oura with friends on an all-inclusive holiday in the sun. The location was great, next to the beach and close to both the new and old town (very good for restaurants). Unfortunately, the location is the only real positive I can give this hotel.
Checking in took over an hour due to payment across each shared room having to be paid in a way that meant the total couldn’t be shared equally. The receptionist made it hard work to get everyone checked in and into a room, complicating the process and mixing up paperwork. The light in reception above the desk flickered and gave more than one of our party a headache.
Rooms of 4, costing over €230 each were appalling with only a small double bed and sofa to share. The rooms were very tired and need some work. Drawings in pen on the wall seemed to show the fire exit, while sun loungers on the balcony were in bad condition. The shower was in particularly bad condition, with a trickle of water at best coming from the head while on. Not once were the rooms cleaned or dirty towels taken, maids only entered the room to offer new towels, leaving them on the side.
The pool was freezing cold and again the sun loungers weren’t up to much in the main areas of the pool. Jacuzzi was also freezing cold, not once did I see anyone using it in 4 days. Drinks at the bars were limited to two small plastic cups each, not letting groups collect drinks for others in the party. Having said that, the beer was one of the better alcoholic drinks I’ve had in a hotel. The gardens were nice and well maintained.
If you’ve read my review and would still like to stay at this hotel, make sure you don’t go all inclusive for the food! Food was terrible and only used once for dinner and breakfast in our 4 day stay. Very watery and tasteless to say the least.
I was very unimpressed with my stay here and wouldn’t recommend to anyone looking at booking anytime soon.
