Just back from a weeks stay here and I didn't want to come home! Portugal is beautiful and this hotel came highly recommended to us by the travel agent. I looked at the photos on trip advisor and didn't think much of them, but once I actually seen the hotel in the flesh, I can confirm that the travellers pics... More

What more can I say that hasn't been said by other reviewers. We're booking Vila Petra next year! Its close but far enough away from the "Strip" which gets quite noisy in the late evening. It's a good half hour walk to the old town, but a taxi costs €5, which is very reasonable. The reception staff were efficient and... More

No microwave but everything else you could possibly need to make your stay a very pleasant one (including dishwasher, small bag of tabs sold in mini market for €1). Spotlessly clean. Daily housekeeping. Pool area very comfortable with... More

DVD player & flat screen TV with loads of British channels. Bath / shower combo. Bidet. Large mirrors. Safety box for a fee (can't remember how much). The apartment had good... More

We stayed here with our two children early August this year for a week. We had the noisiest neighbours for the full week - and even after complaining to reception a few times - nothing was done! Never again will we stay here. We were awake with people running in corridors, banging doors constantly, ringining the door bell - the... More

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on a self catering basis, the rooms are very spacious and have a separate kitchen... More
