Nice hotel, friendly staff, great position with easy parking, only booked B&B, but snacks ok during day if required. No free wifi, only an old PC. Which was as slow as a mule but free of charge.

There are three 'Dom Pedro' hotels in Vilamoura, the Dom Pedro Marina has the best position for, restaurants, beach and Marina Bars.

My husband and I spend a wonderful 9 days, at the hotel for our anniversary in September, the staff really couldn't have be more helpful especially with my husbands condition and so so friendly. I would also like to thank Captivating Travel for all their help in getting us over there, they go out of their way to help what ever the problem maybe .Off with them again shortly. They seriously can't do enough to help. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Love the senior suites, great space, and to bathrooms really helped.

this was my second visit to this hotel the last time 3yrs ago. this time found it to be lacking atmosphere and rooms etc. looking very tired.the staff were very nice and helpful.this hotel location is also very good but lacks a lot of the facilities of other 4 star hotels nearby.

Room Tip: sea views are not great and most of them overlook the pool as well

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Spent 11 nights here recently. Unfortunately the weather was awful, thankfully the hotel was great. The location is fantastic - literally a 1 minute walk from the Marina. The rooms are kind of basic, and yes, it is dated, but it is very clean, and has everything you need. The showers are outstanding!

The pool was lovely, although the weather meant I spent minimal time by it. The staff were great. I was travelling solo for most of the trip and they really were very kind to me, as well as being extremely helpful. The bar and foyer area were nice and comfortable - I spent enough time in them considering the bad weather to confirm this!!

The only complaint I have about the stay, and I know I'm not the only one, is that you have to pay for WiFi. In fact, when I was in reception on a couple of occassions I heard many others complaining about it. It makes very little sense, as WiFi is free everywhere else! I would highly recommend to the management that they reconsider this!

Finally I saw it mentioned somewhere on here about Yellow Fish Transfers for airport transfers, and I would also highly recommend them. Very reliable, and the cheapest place I looked up!

We travelled by monarch airlines to Faro , unfortunatly we were delayed as there were issues with the plane , but rather safe than sorry eh?
I had arranged a transfer with yellow fish taxis , i had heard good reviews about them but i was anxious about them actually being there to collect us , as You are with these things . But it went well , Del boy as he referred to himself (even though he was Portuguese ) met us with our name on a paper , gave us wine , let us use his wifi in the car , an chatted the whole way in English with us , it was a fantastic service . On the way Back we met Berto he was equally Nice and punctual , i told them both i would give them a plug on trip advisor .
Now the hotel , we had a great time , its a well located, hotel , near everything .
Its dated and needs updating , i imagine it was once a fab top of the range place but its loosing points to other newer places as they need to spend on it a bit now , they cant just rely on the location to keep it selling.
Breakfast was good , we didn't eat any more meals there but i believe its all inclusive as well , i heard it was Nice but repetitive .

We were unlucky with the weather which exposed the lack of leisure facilities in the hotel, but we knew that when we booked. The public areas and the room were excellent. Service at the bar and at breakfast was excellent. The location for the marina and the beach was great...just wish we could have used the beach more!
Our only gripe is the lack of free wifi in the public areas....come on guys, you need to move with the times. The daft charging structure meant that we went out for drinks in order to access free wifi...madness! I fully understand no free wifi in rooms, but a quick check of email should not cost cash these days.

We booked this hotel on a whim as the one we booked in Moncarapacho was too quiet for us. The location did not disappoint. Hotel staff were very helpful and efficient and could not be faulted. Nice pool, good breakfast and not really expensive for its location. Rooms are tired and slightly depressing though, dark brown tiled floors and an overwhelming smell of bleach to go with the 1980's floral bedspreads and the wifi was priced at 2.5 euro for 6 hours a bit of a surprise in this day and age. All very clean, fine if you only fancy a couple of days, for longer would say pay more and have a bright airy room it would be worth it.
