This is the second time we have stayed at Vila Vita and it was still as fantastic as the first time. The hotel is great for adults and kids alike. Our 6 year old had yet another fablous holiday with lots of activities, a great kids club and fantastic staff throughout the hotel (particulary the staff in the oasis bar... More

We have just returned from vacation. I was extermely happy about the choice of the hotel, as I got exactly what we needed - a very relaxing stay in a gorgeous setting. The hotel is very well maintained and has all necessary facilities. Usually we prefer only BB to be included in the package, but this time we had a... More

Just got back having stayed for 10 nights - 2 adults, 3 children (2x10-year old, 1x2-year old). Very mixed experience - many aspects were excellent (although this should be expected given the cost) to very poor. Food - wide range in quality. Arte Nautica (fish restaurant) was excellent but beware the cost. Dined there on four evenings - not much... More

I stayed Vila Vita recently with my wife and 3 young kids. The hotel was fantastic as was the service, level of accomodation and food. Although the food is a little expensive, it is well worth it and the facilities are fantastic. A beautiful private beach and never any real issues about getting a spot by the pool (at any... More

What a discovery. Met my husband in Europe and we spent a few days in Portugal, never having been before. It was an easy flight from London to the Algarve. A friend in Los Angeles suggested Vila Vita, and it was ideal. We stayed in the Residences, beautiful and elegant accommodations complete with hammock and daybed overlooking the Atlantic. The...

We found this to be a disappointing hotel, which we will not be returning to! The area surrounding the hotel is very down at heel and you will need a hire car if you intend leaving the hotel, as there is nowhere within walking distance that you would want to go to. We were there for the spring half term,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during my honeymoon, it wasn't long enough! Stay for longer. VVP is so relaxing and beautiful, impecably maintained and very friendly service. We stayed in the residences and liked our room very much, spacious with a step down to a seating/living room area, sliding glass doors to an outdoor patio overlooking some grass and... More

We were very impressed with the service here. The staff were very curteous & the food very good quality. Plenty of fresh fruit , vegetables & fish. We booked half board, which we would not normally do, as we had read a trip advisor report beforehand which said that this hotel was expensive & with the current economic climate weren't... More

Great time had by all at the VVP. Fantastic (if a bit expensive at 50 euros per morning) kids club. Great care taken with the kids, good facilities, activities and play areas. Seemed very safe. Good choice of restaurants albeit a couple don't allow young children in. Can understand that...to a point. Would like to have taken mine!! But wouldn't... More

An update to a previous review - we've just returned from our third visit to Vila Vita Parc, and once again cannot praise it highly enough for its lovely gardens, brilliant but low-key children's facilities and simply brilliant staff - how do they do it?!
