“Relaxing and Exciting at the same time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This hotel is lovely, staff are both respectful and attentive. Rooms are clean and airy with air conditioning that actually works :) This hotel is the perfect way to experience vilamoura as it is central to the marina and the beach and has a great atmosphere without being too noisy. The poolside bar staff in particular are friendly, attentive and remember customers.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room, it overlooks the pool and the marina for views that are beautiful.

went oct half term stayed at Don Pedro marina hotel nice hotel good location.
The marina was a big plus for us very impressed reasonably priced and a great variety of places to eat and drink.
Only down side of the hotel. we were charged for a drink we did not have from the mini bar.
Was quite offended paid the £3 to save a situation but wont go back to the hotel for this reason.
we gave the staff more in tips every day but hate getting ripped off.
Will be back to the resort but not the hotel.

The Dom Pedro Marina is perfectly placed, with views of both marina & the sea. The sound of the waves & amazing sunset displays seen from the balcony were very pleasant. The restaurant food was simply divine & lunches served by the poolside with the added bonus of an outdoor bar provided a great dining experience. The icing on the cake was the superb service provided by the staff. The team here really know how to help you feel comfortable & have the perfect balance of professionalism & charm, I left feeling thoroughly relaxed & very spoiled.

Booked a room here. The night before check in they emailed me to say they had given me the wrong rate per night and were putting the total up by 240Euro! I was already in the area so went to the hotel. Was told that this was the new rate i would have to pay. There was no manager present to speak to at the time! Was only in the hotel reception but from what i saw it was very old and dated! Glad i didnt stay there! Couldnt not afford the price increase so didn't stay ruined my holiday. Emailed the manager when i got home and given a pathetic responce!

Enjoyed a long weekend at Dom Pedro. Good value, with a large room and a better than decent buffet breakfast. Some aspects of the hotel seem a bit tired but the overall impression was one of comfort and good service. I found the pool area particularly pleasant. Perhaps the clincher is the great central position. Everything is close at hand and you haven't got far to stagger back from the marina, if unlike me, you are used to a liquid nightlife!

Exactly what`s promised, A nice and relaxing hotel.
staff- we found both pleasant and helpful, as well as very efficient.
Location is fantastic,100 yards from marina which has the best and most varied choice
of restaurants and bars I have seen in a long time.
Room -we found clean, comfortable , with nice little balcony, and towels were all changed
daily.
Breakfast is also - both relaxed ,and extremely adequate, with really plenty of everything
on offer, both cooked and continental.
The "gripe" I had was the charge for Wi.fi, which I think in todays age should be free in all
hotels.
Other than that ,I feel anyone would enjoy this hotel as a short stay base, with no hassle
involved.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor room, with sea view.

Stayed here for 2 nights in Oct-13, hotel has a very central location very close to the marina. Sea view rooms are not quite sea view as the hotel is not located next to the beach, its a little misleading. Breakfast is reasonably average, buffet style.
Rooms and bathrooms are good size but quite old furniture. However the big complaint is that wifi is not included and costs extra, not really acceptable nowadays, it should be included. Also the room safe costs extra (you are required to rent a plastic key to activate it), no hotel should charge extra for the safety of your valuables, it should be included.
Also because corridors are tiled, it can be very noisy in the mornings with doors slamming and suitcase wheels clicking on the tiles.
