Out of town location ideal for golfers.

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: Location and ambience
Cons: A little more information on the immediate area. We discovered quick routes and alternative beaches when out exploring.
Location: We enjoyed the out of town location as the shuttle buses were frequent enough to take us to the Marina. We explored on bikes.
We enjoyed our visit very much and felt we were well looked after. The staff were very efficient and helpful when necessary. The food we ate at the hotel was of a good standard and the venues were airy and comfortable. The pools were always clean and there were plenty of beds around for sunbathing. The pool staff were particularly good and always happy to find you an umbrella/towel when needed. We would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and will hopefully re-visit in the near future.

Smart hotel with a contemporary theme

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: Clean, modern and upmarket
Cons: More frequent shuttle service to Vilamoura Marina
Location: The location as moderately remote and guests would be advised to hire a car to get around
This hotel offers bright, open plan rooms with comfortable beds, luxury bathroom and even a walk-in wardrobe. Breakfast was excellent with a broad choice and nice atmosphere. All staff were courteous and helpful. The adult only pool was a lovely relaxing area with very comfortable sun loungers for one or adjustable beds for couples to share. Changing rooms are available at this hotel which made departing from the hotel in the evening more convenient.

20 Year Anniversary.

Posted 27-Aug-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Possibly a few more time slots to the free shuttle bus service (every hour would be better), due to the location of the hotel.
Location: Nothing going on at all by hotel, you need to travel into Vilamoura for the night life, dinner etc. However, it does have one of the best Golf course
Me and my husband stayed at this hotel for 4 nights over August bank holiday and were absolutely bowled over by it. We are quiet well traveled having stayed at the Waldoff Astoria in New York, The one and only in Dubai, Crystal Cove in Barbados, Vila Vita (leading hotel in the world) in Porches, Portugal to name but a few, but have to say this hotel has it all. The Hotel is a relatively small in comparison to what we are used to but it does everything perfectly. The service at reception and the waitresses at breakfast are exceptional. The rooms are fabulous with fantastic views and have the comfiest beds we have ever slept in. Please do not change a thing, we will definitely along with our children next year.

Fantastic Clean hotel, with friendly staff

Posted 26-Aug-2014
Pros: Everything, can't complain... Friendly staff, clean rooms, good food and drink...
Cons: nothing...
Location: Location is ideal if you would like peace and quite, not much around the area, however as mentioned they do provide a free shuttle to the marina...
This is our third visit to this hotel and again we had a fantastic holiday, the staff are all so friendly and welcoming... They provide a free shuttle service from the hotel to the marina which makes it easy to get around. Highly recommend this hotel..!!

Absolute bliss

Posted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: There was a separate pool for adults only which was very serene and the free shuttle bus to and from the marina
Cons: The signal for wifi in the rooms and across the hotel as well as providing tea making facilities in the room
Location: Marina, mini golf
We stayed for 7 nights to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. The hotel was very accommodating and even provided us with complementary chocolates and champagne which was a very nice touch. The hotel facilities were very good with 2 pools. We would recommend signing up for GHA Discovery which will enable you to receive free wifi (otherwise charged at €15 per day). Overall a great stay!

Great hotel

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Great hotel that caters well for everyone. Very friendly/helpful staff, very clean and comfortable, food is very good. This is a relax and chill out venue with little evening entertainment. However, complimentary bus service runs regularly to the Marina where very nice restaurants and different types of entertainment. Will definitely return in the future.

Nice hotel in a quiet location

Posted 19-Aug-2014
Pros: The staff are the selling point of this hotel. And it's quiet location but with easy access to the marina in villamoura.
Cons: More staff required during the busy season to assist with shorter waiting times at reception and having someone show you to your room.
Location: Beautiful area with nature reserve, amble golfing, marina and beach.
We stayed at the Tivoli Victoria in October 2013 and found it a much better experience than when we stayed in August 2014. This is probably because we initially went at the end (or even out) of the season. Little things that I had expected a 5* hotel to do (eg show you to your room!) were missing. I think they need to employ more stuff during the summer season to cope with the extra demand. However the staff that were there were amazing. Extremely helpful and accommodating.

Fantastic hotel

Posted 18-Aug-2014
We have just returned home from a lovely long weekend at the Tivoli Victoria. The hotel was beautiful and the service was fantastic! The furniture around the pool was very comfortable and despite it being the middle if August we could always get beds, no need to rush at 8am!! Breakfast was yummy as was the hotel resturant so Emo for a lovely Michelin style dinner. The bed in the room was very comfortable!!

Modern, contemporary hotel on a golf course

Posted 17-Aug-2014
Pros: Contemporary hotel and outstanding service
Cons: Better gym facility
Location: About 15 minutes outside of the Marina at Villamoura. Hotel on golf course.
Outstanding hotel .... All staff were extremely helpful and the level of service was fantastic. Rooms were very clean and modern. Very efficient shuttle bus service to the Marina every evening and they put on extra buses when they were full.
