Beautiful hotel within a short walk of the town with fabulous views of the marina. The breakfast was amazing, the pool and spa spotlessly clean and the rooms very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Be warned alcohol is very expensive and you really can not get into your room until 2pm however it is a lovely place... More

We just had a 3 night stay at Real Marina. We booked a Junior suite - Ria suite - which was well worth the bit extra money. We had a fantastic view over the Pool, Marina and out to the islands. We had a sitting room, 2 balconies, a huge bathroom and lots of storage space - we had a... More

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,...
