                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.

                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.

                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.

                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

                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.

                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.

                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

                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.
