Second time to this lovely hotel and we were not disappointed. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are spacious and well appointed with excellent bathrooms. The breakfast buffet is wonderful and we love the sparkling wine to make a Bucks Fizz! Great on New Years Day! The spa and pools are beautiful and clean.... More

This is a very large modern hotel. The bedrooms are large and airy with lovely large bathrooms. We had a room over looking the sea with a good sized balcony. I would have like tea and coffee making facilities in the bedroom but this is a minor quibble. There aren't many English channels on the TV. The breakfast buffet is... More

The Real Marina is a large modern hotel with all the amenities you'd expect, but with a staff so friendly you'd think you were in a B&B. The rooms are large, clean, well-furnished, with beautiful views of the harbor and tidal flats. The spa is lovely, with a small heated indoor pool and a large outdoor infinity pool, plus hot...

I visited this hotel in October 2015 and had the most relaxing holiday if my life. Out of season, I found it to be quiet and able to enjoy the pool area and great sunshine. The staff were the best at customer service that I have ever experienced ( and I stay in hotels 3 days per week on average)... More

Apologies for this rather late review. We came in October for our 10th Wedding Anniversary stay. Absolutely superb, fantastic view from our spacious and well equipped bedroom overlooking the Ria Formosa and beyond. The outdoor pool was just below us with its fantastic location overlooking the wonderful views. Many thanks for the bottle of fizz cooling in the cooler and... More

Overlooking the marina, the views are excellent. We were in 441 and arrived to find that we had indeed been given a double bed and sea view as requested, good start. The room was spacious, well decorated and very clean. Bathrobes for two, a tv that worked, with appx 5 English channels. No kettle, but this was supplied within 5... More
