“Another Winner !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This was our third visit to this fine hotel. We stayed in the Dom Pedro twice last year and again in early September 2013. The Manager Alexandra Santos welcomed us personally and although we had booked a standard room she gave us a Junior Suite!. It was 10 days of lying by the pool reading and spending the evenings dining in style both in the hotel and at the many good local restaurants. We cant wait to get back again

Room Tip: There is a very good breakfast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Stayed at Dom Pedro Marina for 10days and was not sure what to expect due to the variation in Trip Advisor reviews. This is my third stay in Vilamoura and the third hotel I have stayed in, the others being the Tivoli and the Vila Gale.

First and foremost there is no doubt this is a four star hotel, We stayed on the 6th floor and had five days with sea view and five days with Marina view. This is the floor to stay in, and my preference was the Marina view.

On the positive side the cleanliness of this hotel is outstanding the best I have seen, I witnessed first hand the cleaning that took place prior to us moving to the room with sea view, the staff were excellent. The lifts were first class, the tiled decor which some find dated I found clean and tidy, no hiding place for bugs in tiles. The pool was clean and was located such that you have sun from morning to night, a distinct advantage over some competitors. Plenty sun loungers and pool plenty big enough for me.

Rooms were well furnished with fridge and tables inside the room and on the balcony, beds are fairly hard / firm, I would have preferred softer. TVs are not state of the art but were suitable for our needs, we only used the Sky and BBC world news channels. Fitting flat screen TVs would not enhance the available channels, so not a priority for me.

Breakfast was very good something for everybody, bacon is not as you find it in the UK but it is ok provided not overcooked. We enjoyed breakfast, again supported by excellent staff.

This hotel is quiet and usually peaceful, so if you are looking for childrens activities and entertainment etc., this is maybe not for you. There is billiard table and music in the evening.

A couple of things I thought the hotel could do better: They do not promote the music in the evenings, nor activities in the beach areas or round Vilamoura, such as the old town, they could certainly sell themselves better. Even advising on the entertainment available in the sister establishment the Dom Pedro Golf Resort would be good.

I am a do it yourself person and in our first room I cleaned the shower head to turn it from a very good shower to an excellent one. I also noted that a towel rail had been removed from the bathroom in our second room, but the fixings had been left open. Basic thing to do is plug holes or fit new towel rail, so black mark. Other than that no other complaints.

Bottom line I would be more than happy to stay here on my next visit. Cleanliness, good food and friendly staff are my priorities

Room Tip: The higher you are in the hotel, the better the view, look for 4th floor or higher.

This is a wonderful hotel. 1 minute from the Marina and 1 minute from the beach, it is the perfect location. The staff are the friendliest I have ever come across. The rooms are pleasant and clean, the beds a little old and could do with being replaced. The breakfast has a hot and cold buffet.The hotel pool is clean and quiet. The hotel provide you with a shuttle bus to most golf courses, which is normally 20 minutes away.

The hotel is very quiet and peaceful and really helps you relax, but it is the location that makes this hotel, as you have the fantastic marina so close that you can walk their for an amazing choice for lunch or dinner.

Just back (sadly) from our 4th or 5th stay at this hotel.
Staff excellent, Valentin on reception and Jose (I think) behind the bar deserve special mention.
Good selection for breakfast each morning including the delectable Portugese custard tarts.
Rooms always spotless, location perfect for the marina and beach.
Golf transfers worked like a dream as per usual.
Fantastic views over the marina from the superior suites, looking forward to next year already.
Thank you

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on the superior suites as the large terraces make the room.

Stayed for 6 nights, the hotel was clean, and the staff were helpful, but the beds were very hard and the hotel seemed somewhat basic, but it occupies a good location for the marina and the beach. If there was a next time I think we'd spend a bit more and go to another hotel. Perfectly adequate though.

Stayed at the Dom Pedro Marina for a week, the hotel was very clean, and the staff willing to help. Found the bedroom a good size, but could do with a face lift and tea making facility, would be good. The hotel and pool area was well kept. But could not fault the position of the hotel so close to the beach and the marina. Lovely place and beaches.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise

We have just returned from the dom pedro marina 13-9-2013 with jet 2 holidays we found the room to be clean but in need of refurbishing the beds were very uncomfortable also very noisy full of golf eras who were loud first thing in morning the pool area is small as every body reserving sun beds at 8.00 in the morning we enjoyed the resort but will not be returning to dom pedro.

Room Tip: Top floor if possible nobody above you dropping golf balls at 6 in the morning on a tiled floor
