Vidamar is a relatively new hotel and has all of the benefits of this in being spotlessly clean with staff eager to please. The location is perfect- five minute walk to the beach which was not over crowded unlike other nearby beaches. The children's club is well run- good signing in and out policy and the kids are well entertained... More

We are here at the moment and it's been great, the staff are friendly, hotel is spotless and pool is lovely. Kids club all day and stuff on every evening so ideal for children. It is a bit sterile and not much character to hotel as it's new but it's very comfortable and we've had a great holiday. Food is... More

We had read the reviews before going here so we were prepared. No. it's not really a five star. Yes, the open plan bathrooms take getting used to. However we do disagree with those finding fault with the food and service. The buffet was plentiful and delicious, the staff were overly accomodating and friendly and we were spoiled for choice...

We have just come back from the Vidamar hotel after the most wonderful week, and would like to thank the management and staff for being so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. For us it was the most perfect holiday from start to finish. We were welcomed by the very efficient staff and although we had arrived early due to... More

Been there twice already and recommend it for the following points: - 1 huge swimming pool, 1 nice kids pool and 1 very nice heated outside pool - Direct access (walking 3 minutes) from hotel to the beach - Great kid animation programs both at night...

We are currently here. This is a new hotel and some of the staff are inexperienced, however all of them we have had any dealings with so far have been extremely pleasant and helpful. You do not have to pay €7 to open the safe but you have to pay €7 to open the mini bar. Safe and wifi are... More

This is a 3 star hotel at most. Best part of our holiday was the room view. Staff, in particular at the reception (day time) were grumpy and not very helpful. To give you an example, we asked the reception to call a taxi for us with a baby seat and was informed we need to provide 2 hours notice!... More

Seemingly new resort, very modern decor(could fit into business category), well kept,but under the surface definitely not 5 star. On Friday night arrival, after a very delayed trip, we were warmly welcomed by a young man, who had us at the door. On arriving at the desk where two women were standing, we were told to go to the check... More
