Great hotel in a great location

Posted 01-Jul-2015
Excellent facilities in this hotel. Ate on the square behind the marina. It's much more reasonable and beautiful food. Villamoura is a beautiful resort. This was our 3rd stay.

Good location; does what it says on the tin

Posted 29-Jun-2015
Pros: Proximity to the marina; clean and tidy; friendliness of staff.
Cons: The evening 'entertainment' looked quite cringeworthy - dodgy singers, naff karaoke, wine tasting etc. It was like a cruise ship in the mid eighties.
Location: Very good location; a 2 minute walk to the marina so couldn't be better. Plenty of restaurants to choose from.
A decent enough hotel in a really good location overlooking the marina; I would liken it to a 3/4 star in the UK as the offering is what you'd expect from a hotel that tries to appeal to all demographics of life. It works for golfers who are serious about having a base to use all the premier courses; it also works for older couples who just want a nice break and access to good restaurants on the marina. You wouldn't come here for a romantic break as the rooms are fairly basic, although clean and tidy with fresh towels every day. All rooms have a balcony; ours was on the 8th floor so great views across the marina and out to sea.

Great hotel, perfect location

Posted 27-Jun-2015
Stayed here for a short break in June. We were on the top floor and the views of the marina from the higher floors are stunning. The hotel is a short walk to the marina but is far enough away so that you don't hear noise from the bars in the evening. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful and there was a good selection of food at the breakfast buffet. Tip: if you are wanting the cooked breakfast aim to go down when it gets busier (about 9am), any earlier and the food is luke warm. Was apprehensive about this trip as I had read many reviews about rowdy golfers in the hotel but we must have missed them as all the golfers were very well behaved! Overall this trip exceeded expectation and if I return to vilamoura in the future I would definitely book this hotel again.

Nice hotel convenient to marina and beach

Posted 26-Apr-2015
Pros: So convenient to everything.
Cons: Breakfast wasn't great. No variation in food, same thing each morning. We had breakfast out a couple of mornings
Location: Few minutes walk to the marina, shops, restaurants and beach.
Stayed here for 1 wk in April. Nice view of marina from bedroom. This hotel caters for golfers and we found it noisy at night in the bar and bedroom. Rooms small but comfortable.

hôtel agréable

Posted 31-Mar-2015
Pros: Les personnels serviables
Cons: Rien
Location: Il y a La Marina avec plusieurs restaurants , le casino, si non il n"y a pas des activités culturelles
Hôtel très propre, personnels serviables, piscine très propre, petit déjeuner varié et bon. Seulement cet hôtel est loin de Faro, mais il y a quand même le système de bus on doit connaître les horaires.

Great Hotel. Perfect Location

Posted 10-Feb-2015
Pros: Great location to Marina .Hotel very clean. Staff helpful and efficent.
Cons: whilst there were english speaking channels on tv. BBC , sky and CNN news. Would have been nice to have ITV and BBC.
Location: two minutes to Vilamoura Marina with shops and resturants. Five minutes to beach.
Could not really fault this hotel at all, and i am very hard to please. Arrived at Eleven in the morning, and was checked in straight away. The room and balcony were large, well maintained and very clean. We had only booked bed and breakfast, and breakfast was freshly cooked to our liking. The staff were fabulous in all departments, very friendly, helpful and polite. A special mention to Marco on reception, who was super efficent and went over and beyond in every way to help. Would stay here again with no hesitation.
