We spent 6 days and nights at this hotel for our summer holiday with our two boys: aged 4 and 1 and also our friends who have a 5 year old boy. I agree with other reviews that this hotel is not 5 star. There are parts of the hotel that need redecorating and small things like having a shower... More

I was there in August 2015. Coming early to the hotel, expecting to wait to be checked in, but the staff were very helpful and friendly, and made their best to provide the room as early as possible. Resort facilities are great, it is a huge resort with a great view. Beaches, indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants and gardens are... More

The room is very small and we can see some stains on the floor carpet. We can also see wear signs on the furniture. No wifi pass was transmitted on check in. Only positive comment is location near the beach.

Stayed for a week in August at the Grande Real Santa Eulalia. Overall had an enjoyable holiday. Hotel of good quality rooms clean. We had a room overlooking the resort which we found to be better than paying for a sea view as the sun is on that side of the hotel late afternoon so nice to sit out on... More

Has everything one would expect from a 5* hotel besides the poor wi-fi. Breakfast was lovely and with a generous selection of foods. Wi-fi was disappointingly poor! We were in room 236 and the wi-fi was not good enough. So much so that the Messenger app for Facebook actually failed to work properly during our stay at the hotel. The... More

Summary I stayed in this hotel with my wife the first week in August 2015 on a B&B basis having booked a deluxe sea view room. We chose it because of the Tripadvisor rating and its close proximity to the beach. Overall, we were disappointed mainly due to the small pool, limited range of food and the hotel’s isolated location... More

My partner and I stayed there thinking that it would be a great place for a relaxing stay in the Algarve. Unfortunately it is very much a family resort and the pool area is small for such a large resort, therefore there is not much "peace and quiet" around the pool. The location is great for the beach (though the... More
