I have never been made to feel so special! Arriving at the door we were met with hotel staff and a member of the entertainment team. Luggage was immediately taken care of and a refreshing drink provided whilst we obtained our keys. Check in was effortless and as soon as we opened our room door I knew that we had... More

We stayed at this hotel from the 27th Sept until the 8th October 2014. This is a lovely hotel in the small village of Olhos D'Agua about 4 miles along the coast from the bustling resort of Albufeira. The hotel maintains the excellent standards associated with the Riu Hotel Group , albeit whilst it claims 4 star rating, which I... More

We spend 1 week in this hotel and except for the last 5 minutes everything was perfect. The check-inn was handled very professionally and very kindly by the staff. The restaurants were excellent although we didn't try the chinese one. A special mention to the entertainment team which made each evening a great show in the theater and funny activities... More

We recently (sept 2014) with friends on a thomson all inclusive package, Hotel is nice, larger than we are used to and as such a little impersonal, another traveller remarked that it was all about volume, maximum people in minimum fuss. Hotel is clean and bright with 2 pools, all inclusive is ok but a bit limited in that you... More

A lovely place & at this time of the year it wasn't too busy. Friendly staff, food was fine, restaurant clean & tidy. Room was spotless clean & comfortable. Shame there wasn't any waiters (maybe because of the time of the year) next to pool or restaurant but not a problem really.

Brilliant holiday again at the Guarana, the weather was exceptionally hot for October, food good but pork or veal every meal, lots of other choices, fish, salad etc. Given a room overlooking roads and waste ground on arrival but able to change it next day for a larger one overlooking pools, plenty of sunbeds and towels provided. Staff very pleasant... More

We stayed on the 4th floor with a pool view, the room was clean and spacious. Our maid did a great job. The hotel is rather dated, however, all of the staff were friendly and genuine and wanted to ensure we had a great holiday.The main buffet restaurant served a variety of dishes, but was very repetitive. The quality of... More
