My wife and I stayed for a week through Christmas and had a great stay. Rooms clean with housekeepers checking every day. All staff were friendly and helpful at all times. It was just a short 8 minute walk to the sea front. Restaurant was for quick meals, nothing fancy. We would definitely go back.

Stayed in January. Room was really comfortable; temperature easy to control. Kitchen well-equipped. Room cleaned every day. Staff on reception (and the cleaners) were lovely - very cheerful, friendly and helpful. Sea about 10 minutes walk in one direction (don't miss the fantastic walk along the coast to Alvor), and supermarkets etc 15 minutes in the other. Wouldn't hesitate to... More

This hotel was the worst choice in my life. I will never return. Seriously. The first apartment I stayed was halfway between the ground floor and the basement (?!?!). The room was smoky and the sheets were smelly. There was an ANT INVASION during the night in the bathroom. I asked for a change. The staff was helpful (it was... More

The apartments are fantastic! Spacious lounge with French windows and balcony, bedroom with plenty of storage , French windows and balcony, kitchen with oven and fridge freezer and bathroom with bidet. Everywhere spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and furnished. I had a lovely view over open land with sea views to the side. Lovely little swimming pool and very pleasant... More

Nice friendly staff, couldn't believe the size of the apartment, seperate fully fitted kitchen, clean bathroom, huge sitting room, had a level 1 apartment overlooking a disused football field and further across the resort. If you don't hire a car, get a bike as the area is a little hilly, and places like Alvor and Portimeo are about 30-40 minures... More

Firstly, do not book a studio, they are situated ground/sub-ground level, have no outside space, limited natural light with only a small high-level window which has security bars. It would be akin to spending your holiday in a dungeon! After complaining, Plaza Real did upgrade myself & a friend to a lovely apartment but we had to share which was... More

Me and my Husband stayed at the Plaza Real in the beginning of October during one week in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was a very pleasant stay and we loved it! - The staff is very nice in general. There was only one employee that doesn't answer to our "good mornings" when we were passing by the reception, but... More

I booked a studio at this hotel, they have 3 studios, all are semi below ground level, at the back of the kitchens, have no outside space, or even a window that opens onto fresh air. They are dark, you would need the lights on permanently and in my opinion only suitable as staff accommodation. Saying that, on complaining on... More
