              Individual guest reviews

              • A great central location and Vilamoura is BIG on golf, and boats. The hotel is excellent, staff are helpfull and also tea and coffee making facilities in the room would be nice. The buffet breakfast had a large variety to choose from.

                Very bad value for money and a lazy distance to the beach. The service at the bar could be quite slow at times, the food is average at best and the pool is freezing and should be heated.

              • Great rooms wirth sea view, also the boat trip on the catamaran Vital was good and drinks and food was cheaper in the park than outside. Value for money was excellent and the staff were at all times courteous and helpful. Senior suites were available at exceptionally reasonable rates, breakfast was delicious and the swimming pool was nice.

                After driving back to the airport to get a rental car, also, a charge for the spa use is really not acceptable for a four star hotel and the service is a little slow. Bar is expensive.

Hotel and bedrooms very clean, to sum our holiday up we had a great time and would definately return, the staff were very helpful at all times. The rooms were spacious, breakfast was excellent and the selection of fruit and pastries were delicious. Sunbeds at the pool were always available whatever time of day.

              • Excellent location close to beach, the bus station is handy to get a ticket to Albufeira and coffee making facility in the rooms like other hotel rooms I have stayed in. Friendly helpful staff and level of cleanliness good, well maintained, fridge very useful, air con large balcony. Service is first class and food is fantastic.

                Ours wasn't very big and the bathroom was quite small, our towels were never changed once, the cooked breakfast was not hot enough each morning.

              • The sea view is exceptional for the rooms at the front and hotels should provide all basic facilities free of charge to paying guests.

                Staff at ppol bar not very friendly.
