This is my very first TA review as I have used this service to judge so it is only fair i do the same for prospective guests also. Let me say tha the hotel is a large complex, which is surrounded by Palm Trees. We selected the Half board, Nature View (i.e. Facing the outside of the Building onto the... More

We've just returned from the Vidamar Algarve and had a great holiday. Our children are aged 8 and 5 and they loved it. We stayed in a 2 bed villa with private pool and we felt this gave us the best of both worlds - an opportunity for privacy and quiet and access to the hustle and bustle of the... More

Dear Laura, Thank you first of all for chosing our resort for your recent holiday and for your time to post your holiday experience. August is by far the busiest month in the Algarve, this is when mostly the Portuguese and Spanish families drive down south for their Summer family holiday, thus there are a lot of children everywhere you...

Very difficult to rate this hotel. In the end, we have gone for three out of five. Too many negatives for us personally. Good location, although it looks the same as other hotels in the area, so maybe the same architect/builder/interior designer had a hand in all of them at some point! Reception area resembles an aircraft hanger. Check in... More

I stayed with my parents and a friend for five nights in this hotel. The idea was to have a restful family holidays. Unfortunately, the time here was all but rest. The hotel was overcrowded, full of kids and constantly very noisy, either by the pool, as well as by the the bars and restaurant. There was constantly kids running... More

Excellent location. Beach is in front of the hotel. Excellent breakfast. Dinner could be better. Too many fried food for kids. Should have grilled fish. Pool is marvellous. All the environment is very exotic.

We were expecting much more from a 5 stars resort (!!!) especially considering it was August and the price we paid!! The hotel was overcrowded and staff and service was completely inappropriate. We always had to queue, to sit for breakfast, to have lunch, to have dinner. Whatever we wanted to do we always had to wait. There were about... More

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your preference in our Hotel for your holiday and for the time to post your comments online. I'm sorry to read you were disappointed with your stay with us. August is indeed the busiest time in the Algarve (and in our Hotel), with a tremendous amount of families staying during this period, thus... More

We booked a two weeks vacation stay directly with the hotel by phone and are currently in-house. This hotel is certainly not a 5 star hotel looking at it from a classical point of view. It is not a luxury hotel and you can't compare it with the Vilalara or others in the area. However and in view of the... More

We booked the hotel as a 3 night family getaway before we embarked on the extended family villa break. We chose it as it was close to the villa we would be going to and it was supposed to be a 5 star. Our first impressions were very disappointing. There was far to many children screaming around the foyer and... More

Whilst the hotel is new and probably still learning, 5 star it is not. Rooms are fine but cleaning staff seem to wait until you are in your room and then knock on the door hoping to be turned away. One one occasion it was 5:30pm when the cleaner finally showed up to our room and we had paid for... More
