A very nice hotel. I've never experienced so much service from the staff anywhere else. Sometimes it feels likes too much service, if thats possible. If you like to spoil yourself in the best hotel in Olhaõ this is the right place to spend your vacation. Would come back here again and again, without a second thougt. Perfect!

We booked this hotel independently and never having been to the Algarve before we had no idea where to stay so decided this would be a good start. We were not looking for noisy night life just a getaway break. The hotel is just beautiful. We agree with other reviews that you really should try to get a sea view... More

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

Great hotel, fab area, pool area lovely, staff very helpful and friendly, Islands well worth a visit. A lot of tapas bars and restaurants in the area. Breakfast good, did not eat in the hotel at night but lunch good also.

We spent 4 nights here. Hotel spotless. Only complaint there are no tea/coffee facilities in room. 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

We stayed for two nights at the end of our two week visit to Portugal. The staff at this hotel were the nicest. Staff I have come across in our many years of travel in many countries. Top marks to the reception staff. The hotel has a great location, rooms are good size, large bathroom, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and... More
