Having just returned from 2 weeks at the Vila Petra we wanted to rate the hotel and our time in this area of Portugal. This was our 3rd visit to Portugal in 4 years. The Vila Petra is located a 10 minute walk from two main streets one with multiple restaurants and the other the 'Strip'. You can also walk... More

All staff great- could get a sunbed even when you went down later on in the day - plenty trees in the garden to hide away from the sun as it was so HOT when we were at the Vila Petra - loved the relaxed atmosphere in the dining room - found food very good - plenty to eat -... More

I cannot fault anything with the accommodation, restaurants, entertainment, sports and facilities. It's very clean and looks beautiful inside and out. Perfectly located close to the strip and the shuttles provide easy access to the stunning Oura beach and Strip.

I have just returned from a nine-day holiday with my husband and daughter at Vila Petra. I booked ‎a one-bed apartment here back in May based on the extremely positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I ‎booked flights separately so the cost was for accommodation only. As self-catering ‎accommodation goes, it was not cheap – 1,600 euros for nine nights with no... More

We just returned home today from Vila petra, and felt I should write a review! We stayed self catering in a family group of 8 (ages 2 - 50+), the apartments were fantastic, the kitchen was so well equipped everything you would need, and more, even down to corkscrew! They were absolutely spotless, beds made every day and clean sheets/towels,... More

Just returned from a week in this spotlessly kept, comfortable hotel. Our studio apartment was really spacious with a really well equipped kitchen in a separate room. Aircon efficient. Large pool and a smaller, quieter kids pool. Plenty of sunbeds, despite some folk ignoring the rules on reserving with towels for too long. Gardens are really well cared for and... More

When we arrived at first we were disappointed, as we were put off by the surrounding area being quite rustic. However, although the accommodation is a little tired and basic, it is very clean, and the grounds are beautiful. The food however is not worth bothering with. We were room only and went to try breakfast one morning, we were... More
