Daily cleaning with fresh towels and bedlinen on alternative days. Excellent staff throughout hotel. Had dinner on 2 nights which was very good. A little expensive but hotel bar very expensive. Went to... More

Nice and clean hotel. Only downside is you hear everything from the room next door and the creeks from the room above. Try and get top floor. Staff are friendly - the night guy ( elderly man) and man on reception (not roberto-didn't catch his name) he was on reception on the 19th june were very nice and friendly. They... More

Great hotel for a relaxing break. Just 5 minutes walk from the strip and 10 minutes to the nearest beach. The staff are genuinely friendly and can't do enough for you to make your stay special,especially the reception staff. Nuno was lovely, very helpful and always had a smile. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and huge balconies overlooking... More

Lovely hotel and great location if you want to be near the strip. Old town is much nicer. The strip is full of hens & stags. Very commercialised also. Hotel was clean but the pool bar area floor could do with a clean. Bunches of ants on the floor where left over food was. The young girl with the long... More

The Vila Petra is in a good location within a short walk of the strip in the new town of Albufeira. In truth this hotel is more of a 3 + a half start rather than a 4 star but that is more down to the decor of the rooms rather than the facilities. The food selection was very good... More

Just got back today from a week's stay at the Vila Petra and couldn't be happier with our choice of hotel. Rooms are very spacious and are cleaned everyday. Kitchen came complete with everything we could have wanted for self catering, including a toaster and even a dishwasher (bring your own tablets). Free use of gym and fitness facilities at... More

stayed here a week with my hubby to attend a family wedding nearby. We were surprised and disappointed with the noise early hours of the morning due to hen/stag do's coming back in to the hotel considering its location in the quiet area of the strip. I have noticed a few reviews who had the same problem hopefully the manager... More
