Just back from a fantastic week at this hotel. The staff and location are wonderful but dinner in the evenings was very poor. Never 5* quality. We are not vegetarians but felt sorry for anyone who was. Only option was different shaped, dry looking pasta every evening and meat dishes of very poor quality.

Just back from a week at Real Marina. Just 20 minutes taxi from Faro..Great. Lovely hotel and really nice staff. First reason we selected the hotel is that it cost about half a similar 5 star. We were a little worried about it being too cheap - is their a catch??. Glad to say "NO". Just great value. Why? Maybe... More

this was the first night of our portugal roadtrip. We prebooked it to have a stay after driving down from Lisbon. We found a fairly big hotel with a very friendly reception. Also the room was quite nice and the view was stunning. The location is in perfect walking distance to several good restaurants and seeing the see from your... More

We have just returned from a wonderful week at this hotel. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen well. The room was superb even though we could not get a sea view. The village view is fine and plenty of interest - it reminds you that you are not at home and not the usual pool view... More

Visited Olhao during the low season so having a good hotel & friendly caring staff made a huge difference. Facilities are clean and rooms are roomy compared to other hotels. Lovely pool side and downstairs bars with friendly and accommodating staff. We had breakfast included, which was ok for a buffet - however not much variation. Would not recommend the... More

My wife and i have just returned from a great five night break at this hotel. From the moment we arrived to this clean, modern, friendly hotel we were greeted with smiles and offers of help. It is located overlooking the marina and less than a 10 minute stroll to the market along the promenade. A sea view room catches... More

I visited the Real Marina with my mother for seven night stay. The hotel is really modern and comfortable. I am planning a return trip this summer and have recommended the hotel to many friends and family members. It is a great choice for both families and couples alike and the proximity to the airport was a real bonus. Breakfast... More
