Fantastic hotel perfect location extremely friendly and helpful staff fantastic breakfast so close to the beach and marina. We travelled with our 8 month old baby and it could not have gone better. Junior suite is ideal for those with families as it has a kitchenette for preparing bottles etc. Excellent house keeping very spacious rooms with everything you could... More

Great location, very good amenities, oh and just the best staff ever. Value for money. We will be back. The Turkish bath and sauna and pool are really well maintained. Best Turkish bath/steam room I have ever been in. The breakfast is very good with a large choice.

The hotel staff are very child friendly, rooms large and clean and breakfast buffet great. On arrival our little girl was offered a 'kids essential' fruit drink, by Nunu, it was very welcomed. Might be worth having water / coffee machine in reception area for the adult guests checking in too.

A group of 8 Lady golfers on our 5th visit to this hotel. Once again we had a great stay. The rooms at the front have fantastic views over the beach. The hotel's location is perfect just off the Marina so easy to walk to restaurants and beach. The staff always make you feel very welcome. We will be returning... More

This hotel was very appealing from the outside and the inside, i had the sea view room with balconies yet I visited when it was unfortunately very windy and cold so couldn't spend much time there. There was free wifi everywhere around the hotel - some places better than others - and I could reach it to some parts of... More

Stayed here for a week as part of a group of golfers. I really like this hotel - it is very conveniently located to the marina where there are a multitude of bars and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent with lots to choose from - hot or cold. Overall a really good choice if you are contemplating staying in Vilamoura.

Visited the Ampalius again in January this year and another great stay. Superb location, great staff and very good room overlooking the beach and marina. Stayed here many times and will continue to stay whenever in Portugal.

Stayed as part of group of 20 golfers. Location excellent. Clean rooms but bit small. Bathroom good with excellent shower pressure. Breakfast good. Pool too cold to use. Friendly staff. Issue with outdoor lift sticking for 2 of our friends gave us a story to tell. 4/5 as been to better in albufeira (grande real santa Eulalia)
