      This Hotel is perfectly situated next to the beach and is within easy walking distance of Vilamoura Marina.

      Buffet breakfast had no service or variation of food content.

    • Couple

      Everything! Room was so comfortable and clean, location was brilliant.Breakfast was very tasty with lots of choice. We were really pleased with our choice of hotel and will be back.

      Friend;t staff, fantastic breakfast, great rooms wirth sea view and cleaned to perfectly every day,nearness to beach,

      I think that a few more sun parasols could be distrubuted around the grass sun bathing area

    • Single

      The perfect location. Good breakfast.

      The cleaning of my room was always done after 4p.M. during my whole staying (f9 days) in the hotel.

    • Older travelers

      Check in Staff very friendly

      lack of staff. Pool bar did not open until 13h30 in the afternoon even after having asked many times. reason why...the Pool Barman and the night bar man were the same, so he needed to sleep.Breakfast food quality was not good. A large variation, howere fruit was from cans not fresh, and the only fresh fruit had no taste (melons). The coffe machines were chemical and really tasted bad, the orange juice was caned and watered down. For a four star hotel, there should be fresh fruit, juice and real coffee.The rooms need to be seriously refreshed as paint and furniture have seen better days. There is a charge for using the room safe in a 4* hotel...why.This is classed as a 4 star hotel...because of the spa, if this was not there, it would be a 2 star.This was the begining of the season, but when you have clients in the hotel, they need to be treated as if it was full season. For us, this was not done.

    • Couple

      Location of the Hotel is excellent - Breakfast buffett was very good with lots of variety for all tastes - We were upgraded to a Sea View as soon as we checked in which was truly lovely and made our stay even more special

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Proximity to the beach, room with sea view lovely, very friendly and helpful staff.

      Villamoura is not an attractive place to us - it is entirely modern with nothing authentic about it. In the hotel, the coffee was poor but that is a minor complaint with everything else making it a wonderful holiday for us.

    • Single

      Location is very close to vilamoura Marina

      No complaints it's a good clean friendly hotel located well

      The view from our room was fantastic, the room was spacious and very relaxing.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      We liked the location of the hotel. The food was excellent and so were all the staff in the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Walking distance to marina life

      Elevators cramp, long wait. They are close together and due to long wait, buttons to all elevators are pushed, so there are more stops than necessary. Sink did not drain properly. Left note for room maid. She asked us, rattled the hose underneath and according to her it was solved. Not so with next use 10 minutes later. Hair dryer broke down. Mentioned both at check out.

    • Family with children
      9.2

      delicious breakfast !!! friendly staff !!!! the seniorsuite was fantastic for our stay with three teenage children ( 13,16, 17 year old)-it was like an appartment ( kitchen , livingroom,3 bathrooms en 2 large bedrooms with two terrasses ( where you could even eat outside !).

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      the rooms were very clean, the cleaners did a good job. Also plenty of hot water in the shower

      i didnt like that you had to wear a swimming cap in the pool or that you had to pay extra to use the steam room and sauna. Also tea and coffee making facilities in the room would be nice

    • Single
      10.0

      It was very relaxing. The staff were very helpful at all times. The weather was very good.

      I didn't like having to pay for Safety Deposit Box. I have been to many hotels and I think the last time I paid for a safety deposit box was about 20 years ago. I also found the €3 charge per hour for wireless internet expensive as I would like to check the internet four or five times in the day so this would make it very expensive so I didn't use the internet so much.

    • Group of friends
      8.8

      comfort and the location is safe and very accessable to the port of vilamoura easy stroll

      booked a morning call for 4.00am did not recieve it and booked early take away breakfast and it never turned up
