“Great to stay and close to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Well this property is huge. They have hotel, villas, apartments and aparthotels, all close to the beach. We spend a weekend there, in the hotel. What was strange at first was that they didn't have a concierge at the door, there was no guy for the valet and the check-in took a while. Not because of a lack of employees but probably because some of them were still in training. The room was pretty nice, with a different bathroom, just top of the art. Just a little note, there was more light missing in the bathroom.
The pool, 2 for the grownups and one for the children, were huge and because of the dark tiles, the temperature of the water was really damn good! The towel service was not good for a 5 star hotel. You have to collect your towel at the reception.
In other hand, you can use the SPA facilities as you wish, no entrance fee needed. Nice indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and turkish bath. If you forget your cap, you'll pay €5/each.
The dinner buffet was good but not amazing. There were more sweets and desserts than other kinds of food. But the drinks were included and you can drink as much water as you like.
If you book early, you can get a good relation quality/price for this hotel.

We spend one week in this hotel. The swimming pool was lovely, the spa relax was very good. The food was good. Beautiful room. Very nice gardens in the hotel. Proximity to beach good. Very clean. Every night very good music. Good value for money. The cleaner broke my perfume in our room and the management replaced immediately.

We got to the hotel very late on our arrival.
Staff was so good, they went out of their way to get us food.
Hotel is really beautiful and our room was really nice. Hotel is not in the centre but they do have a bus service right out side the hotel

Me and my boyfriend visited this hotel in September and we couldn't have asked for a better week!

The hotel was imaculate and v.modern. Exactly what a 5* hotel should be. Our rooms were huge and v.clean.

The pool was lovely and peaceful. Most people staying there were Portugese we were one of the only English. The breakfast was the only dissapointment, it was always cold and there wasn't much choice. The lunch was lovely, and dinner was not great either.

The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the beach i would reccomend walking and not getting a cab as the walk is a lot more enjoyable.

It is about a 20 minute cab ride into town which can be quite costly if you want to get out of the hotel every night.

We had a great experience at the Salgados Grande Hotel. We were 3 couples staying for a long bank holiday weekend:

Pros:

Great value for money
5 minute walk to Salgados and Gale beaches which are both beautiful
Friendly and helpful staff
Generous buffet breakfast included
Comfortable beds and huge rooms
3 lovely pools
Right next to the golf course which was great too
Incredible spa facilities which were free of charge

Cons:

The driving range is located right next to the swimming pools, so it's only open from 8am-10am..bit of a strange design fault.

Pool: amazing, lovely natural round stone pools with a dark natural blue water.
Birds surrounding the hotel and on the grounds were lovely.
Food: we only experienced breakfast but probably the biggest selection and best quality breakfast I ever had!
Beds: the most comfortable beds ever, in fact we nearly got one shipped over to the UK!
Location: near a lovely beach and lovely walks.
Spa: beautiful, had a circuit spa and it was just lovely.
I really can rate this hotel as being a dramatic entrance, superior, great views from your amazing room with great food and cleanliness!
