"We booked a sea view room at Quinta Bela Sao Tiago, but were in fact allocated a room in the newer side wing of the hotel, which gave at best a side sea view - more hotel garden than sea! General satisfaction with the hotel, however, was such that we did not think to query it at the time. On the other hand, Torre Praia would not confirm a sea view room at time of booking but one was allocated to us on arrival without any problem (others were not so lucky!)."
