My Husband and I stayed at this hotel last week of May to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, boat trips to islands were very reasonable and well worth the trips. Fabulous beach. We had a beautiful room on the 4th floor with Sea View Balcony which is a must. We woke up each morning looking out... More

Stayed her for eight nights and was not disappointed. Lovely modern hotel and the staff were very friendly. We were there on a Half board basis and had a sea room view (a must) which looks out onto the pool area. The hotel pool is lovely (could be bigger) but suited us perfectly, plus there is the use of a... More

We had a twin room, the single beds were pushed together and we tried to move them apart but every morning the cleaner had put them back. We had a room with village view which isn't attractive. I would suggest u pay extra for... More

Stayed here for a week in June on bed and breakfast basis. This hotel is well worth it's rating. Very friendly and helpful staff. We were on the fourth floor with a village view and our balcony got the sun all afternoon/early evening. Buffet type breakfast was very good. Would go back here.

If you were to read any of my previous reviews, you will see I usually see the best in everything and usually have lots of great things to share - so I am honestly not one of those people who nit picks!!! I booked into the Real Marina Hotel for myself, my daughter and her partner for a 7 night... More

Booked this hotel knowing it was in a less "touristy" part of the Algarve, there would be a need to get a ferry to the beaches (which ARE fantastic) and our views would not be over the sea but over some "wasteland". We were therefore not surprised by these things nor the fact the cost of the holiday reflected these... More
