Just back after a week there in April. Really nice hotel, very clean, very comfortable. We had a city view room and realised very quickly we should have paid the extra e150 for a sea view but they were all booked. Gym and indoor pool excellent. Buffett breakfast up there with the best too. Only real flaw is the appalling... More

Wonderful accommodations, pool area was really nice. Parking was free in a lower level garage, very secure. Nice views of the bay area, often gets cloudy in the morning so the view comes out around 1100 and is nice until the evening. Walking distance to many restaurants.

Just returned after a four night stay, I would highly recommend this hotel. We had a suite on the fourth floor (room 425) which face south and west so you have sun most of the time. This room is massive, large bedroom with sitting area and a separate lounge area, two bathrooms and a very large balcony facing south and... More

We stayed here for three days in April and the weather was great. We had a third floor room with views over the lagoon, which I would highly recommend as the balcony was spacious and sunny. The breakfast had all you could wish for. We ate in local Portuguese restaurants so cannot speak about the hotel restaurant other than for... More

This is a very quiet hotel off the usual tourist route in the Algarve. We had a junior suite which was huge and overlooked the lagoon. Very clean and well presented hotel but a bit 'cold' feeling especially in the dining room and bar. Food was perfectly ok but not outstanding, plenty of local restaurants just a short stroll down...

The hotel is really great, it has a stylish modern deco and a very friendly staff. The breakfast was delicious and nothing was missing. The room with the Ria view is highly recommendable, otherwise all the charm of the hotel is gone. The things I would improve: 2 small welcome bottles of water out of charge would be nice, better...

Even though the hotel was nice and new, the room was great and the breakfast menu was delicious - some things brought down our experience. First of all, the free wifi was terrible. I have never used a wifi that was so bad, it was working for 10 seconds, then not working for 2 minutes, working for 5 seconds... and... More

Just arrived home from a very good week’s break at the Real Marina Hotel in Olhao. The Hotel is beautiful, with many stylish design features through-out the reception and lobby as well as the rooms. We paid the 15 euro per night surcharge for a sea-view and I have to say this was well worth the cost… if you can... More
