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

If I could give 4 and a half out of 5, I'd be closer to the mark. Described as a 5 star hotel, I think it's short of that, but you get excellent value for money at the prices we paid. The rooms are spacious and airy, painted white and very simple but elegant decoration. Front desk service is amiable... More

Staff very helpfull,room spacious (upgrade to see view if you can worth a small fee) Breakfast good selection. Pool area and snack bar was good, might get a bit busy in high season. Olhao is a quiet fishing village , pleasant walk to get there and plenty of bars and restaurants. Had a great short break
