My family and I have just come back from a lovely holiday at this hotel. I'll address a few of the other 'complaints' that some reviewers have had. My room, the junior suite, was very spacious, with a huge balcony. Really couldn't fault the room at all. Cleaned mid morning every day, power shower, sea view. Opposite the hotel is... More

Don't get me wrong, this hotel is nice, but it certainly isn't a 4 star. First the pro's - The hotel location is great being very near the marina and bus stop. It is also right next to the beach. The reception, bar & pool area are all lovely and very clean. The con's - we had a very small... More

We are currently staying at this hotel. Arrived on Monday morning, no welcome drink and also none at front door to welcome guests. Room was not ready as expected so luggage stored for couple of hours. We were then expected to take all our luggage up to 9th floor even though we had already tipped the bell boy when he... More

Stayed a couple of nights at the beginning of July. The suite was very spacious, and clean, however the decor was getting a little tired and the lights were not working in the kitchen. Breakfast was ok, the continental side was great, the hot food was interesting, very fatty streaky bacon and mini hot dog sausages, and some interesting frothy... More

Noisier than last year with a number of stag parties; the towels on the rather uncomfortable loungers is annoying. However, the hotel is in a great location- next to the beach and a short stroll to the marina. If your room is opposite the Pure nightclub you will need the air con on to mask the noise ..or go and... More

we had a superior room facing the sea. it had a balcony and a kitchenette. Nice and spacious. lovely hotel it a fab setting. Only downside is that it was a bit of a pain to get the sun beds around the pool. However, the fantastic beach is just across the road.

Currently back at the Ampalius. 4th year and it never fails. Always makes me feel welcome to be here,one of the best hotels I've stayed at anywhere. Big shout to Pinto behind the bar. Great man and great at his job. The hotel has everything you need for a holiday,close to beach and marina.Quite simply wouldn't chose another in Vilamoura.
