My partner and I just stayed at this hotel and had high expectations, given it was a 5 star. However from start to finish it was a let down. We arrived early as the check in is not until 4pm, this was not a problem we had encountered anywhere else. We acknowledged this and simply asked if we could leave... More

Just returned from a stay at this hotel and I am totally baffled as to how it has achieved the 5 star accreditation. There is no doubt that the lobby, the restaurant, The Piccadilly Circus Bar,and the room, are done out to a good standard and are pleasant. The room size is good and the Mitsubishi air conditioning system on... More

We have stayed many times at FDV but werent booked to stay this year (prices way too high) . As we stayed at nearby KR Hotel we just couldn't resist going in to have a peek to see if any changes had been made. We asked at Reception if we could have breakfast there and were made welcome. Breakfast there... More

Stayed for nearly a couple of weeks at Easter. We chose the hotel primarily for its location, half way between the strip and the old town. Checking in took a little longer than we expected, initially there was only one guy and a queue started to form, but then he was helped by another person. The information offered at check... More

Any negative thoughts I had regarding this hotel were erased by the positive and caring nature of all the employee s Antonio and his team in the restaurant and kitchen who looked after us everyday ... The ladies who cleaned our gorgeous rooms ... The wonderful reception staff who were so helpful ... And the fabulous ever smiling chistiano and... More

Lovely hotel good location, all inclusive I wouldn't bother..pool bar shut most of time, only one person behind bar at night..very rarely I went in but walked out 15 mins waiting for a beer, understand people want cocktails etc..lets just say an extra bar person rather than 3 people yapping behind reception would not go amiss! (Only one barman?)

My wife and I stayed here in April in one of the timeshare apartments as opposed to the hotel rooms. The apartment was excellent, good size with all the equipment you could want. It was cleaned each day except Sunday. Good sized balcony with table and 2 chairs, which faced the back of the hotel over some tennis courts, thesune... More

Booked a week at the Forte Do Vale in April through Travel Republic. Arrived with accommodation voucher to be informed that they were fully booked. Something was wrong with the server despite hotel bookings being on a real time system. Were turned away. Staff were very unhelpful. As we didn't have a booking they felt no responsibility towards us. Shame... More
