Rio Azul
Reviewed 9 September 2016

We needed somewhere to stay close to Ferreira do Zezere just for a few days while we completed a purchase of a property nearby. Online Rio Azul (at time of booking called Alojamento Rio Azul) looked ideal. Nice airy rooms, a pleasant looking restaurant area - I was expecting a continental style breakfast at the very least. Well, the room was indeed ideal for our needs, beautifully clean and we had lovely crisp bed linen changed daily including towels. There was a temporary member of staff at the entrance to see us in and confirm the booking, but to my knowledge, no one remained on site, the office was closed after a certain time with just a telephone number written on a slip of paper on the door, if anything went wrong. First alarm bells for me - no mention of when breakfast was served or its venue!!! So, as feared, no breakfast available, just the room full stop. No facility to make a drink, just one very small complimentary bottle of water plus two plastic cups on the first night only. We therefore had to go into Ferreira do Zezere and hope a cafe would be open for coffee and a roll each morning. No huge deal, just not what I was expecting or hoping for. Maybe I misread the online booking, but why include photos of your restaurant facilities if there clearly isn't going to be a breakfast included? Oddly, when we came to pay our bill we were told there was no card reader at Rio Azul, we would have to pay cash - just seemed very odd for an up and running business. However, disappointment aside, the room, parking and location were fine for our purpose and short trip. I wouldn't book again.

Room Tip: This hotel is on a main road so maybe request a room at the rear of the building
