We have just returned from a fabulous week at the Real Marina. It is spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis which were very good. There was bacon, sausages, tomatoes, beans, hash browns and scrambled or boiled eggs. If you want fried, poached or an omlette just ask and they... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week (first time without teenage children!) We were not disappointed. Great facilities, friendly staff, spotlessly clean and the food was good. Before our trip, I did have doubts about the food given some of the poor reviews about the evening meals. However, we had booked half board so we tried it on... More

We have just returned from a three day spa-break weekend at the Real Marina,but were quite concerned before we went having read the negative comments on here. Nit picking is the word that comes to mind! The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff were friendly and very helpful and they work extremely hard!! Yes, it may be a little disappointing... More

Stayed for a further 10 days in October and despite what others have said we found that little had changed from our nov 2013 stay. Bare in mind Portuguese 5 star is in line with uk 4 star and you will know what to expect and it matches and exceeds this. The staff are wonderful and could not be more... More

Just came back from a pleasant stay. Hotel is beautiful, but I feel this is a result of being relatively brand new. It has no competition and is in the very charming and remote fishing port of Olhao. Lots of locals, good accessibility to main strip. Rooms very nice indeed as is pool but I feel this hotel is not... More

We recently stayed for one week at this hotel. The room was large, the well appointed bathroom was spotless and the housekeeping service was very good. However the units were a little shabby with marks on them, the 2 'easy' chairs both were stained and the balcony furniture was damaged. The breakfast, the usual selection of hot and cold food,...

It was our 9th stay at the Real Marina Hotel & Spa, in September 2014. I feel I have to write another Review since the one I had written in June this year. There are some " negative" things, which are mentioned on TA, by many Guests, and I include myself also, and agree with many of them. I feel... More

The Hotel is lovely and clean and with everything in good working order, I understand that the hotel is about 3 years old. We stayed for 10 days and had our linen changed 3 times, the towels you can change every day if you wish. Never used the mini bar but the fridge was a bonus, no tea making facilities... More

We had a sea view room which looked out over the pool & sundeck, the main coast road, the promenade, the islands of Ria Formosa to the open sea beyond.The room was quite large, spotlessly clean with a change of linen once during...

it, The decor in the hallways were so bland and drab it absolutely felt like you were in a retirement home, needs more pictures or some colour on the walls. The halls were carpeted which I think is a bad Idea as the carpets absorbs stains and smells musky. But the carpets made the hotel really quiet ,hardly any noise.... More
