I've been there four times. Used to be much better a few years ago. Overall service is now terrible. Takes half an hour to get a drink in the pool area (even when the hotel is only 10% full). In the pool bar? I gave up, had to beg for the bartender. Some employees used to complain that guests were... More

Rooms are big, comfortable and clean. Food is ok, could have been less diversified and improve quality. Staff is very friendly and location is excellent. Beach is very good , but not for kids. Check in and check out very efficient. Internet was poor,I have not tried in the lobby. Location is excellent, near the Praia do Forte village where... More

This hotel is amazing. We stayed here 5 nights and wished we had stayed a whole week. It has 6 swimming pools, a kids pool and lots of entertainment the whole day. There are always shades and beds available at the pool side, no need to hurry to get one. The entertainment staff is amazing, always available to help and... More

Personally I always book my vacations in 5 star resorts so this review is comparing the Service of the Iberostar Praia do Forte with my several previous experiences. It's not often that one finds a Resort All Included that deserve the five stars and is full of unexpected good surprises as the IBEROSTAR Praia do Forte. Starting with the staff... More

Great hotel with excellent facilities and good food. The only drawback is that it is very big so you might have a bit of a walk to the pool or restaurants but there are covered walkways. Really nice place and it is right by the beach too.

First, we were Americans staying at a mostly Portuguese speaking resort. However, the staff was always willing and able to find an English speaking staff member when necessary. We were there over the New Year, and the resort did a 5 star job on the New Year's Eve party. I never stay at less than a 4 star resort, so... More

Our four night stay did not start well. It was a Friday, and this huge resort (and it IS huge) was heaving with people. Our best efforts to locate our room were in vain until another kind guest pointed us in the right direction (which housekeeping staff seemed unable or unwilling to do). The numbering system of the rooms had... More
