“OK Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2010

OK hotel. Nice staff. Good location close to Marina but hotel photo on hotel website was a bit deceiving: we thought we had booked "right by" the marina rather than "close". Accomodation becoming a bit faded/dated. No problem for business conference: facilities fine. Pool a bit small and regularly visited by Ducks who kept landing on it!
I think overall I would prefer its sister hotel in Vilamoura: the Dom Pedro Golf Hotel.

Stayed for a long weekend and could not fault the hotel in any way. The staff were some of the best I have ever encountered and nothing was too much trouble, especially as we got stuck due to ash cloud. The hotel let us keep room on for longer until new flights were sorted and let us use the business facilities to ensure we had necessary paperwork. Highly recommend this hotel....one little downside was the cost of hiring sunbeds at the beach, but hotel amenities itself was excellent value for money.....thank you Dom Pedro Marina, you made our break!

Read a couple of old reviews so a little apprehensive - no need to be whatsoever.
when arrived we wasn't happy with our 1st room (seemed to be a foul odour from bathroom) room was changed without any problems to a pool view. The actual rooms are fine, clean & if you wish to be fussy maybe in need of a slight refurbishment but nothing drastic.Location great, staff fine, pool area spotless & peaceful (plenty of clean sunbeds stored around the side) & some entertainment on at night but a little dour, there is plenty happening at the Marina though. We recommend it & very reasonable

We booked the Dom Pedro Marina for the Easter weekend. On arrival, we were really impressed with the location, being just opposite the marina gates. We hired and car and found there to be a number of parking spaces (free of charge) in hotel car park, but during peak times, it was busy and you needed to park out on the main road. We arrived at 2pm and were told the hotel was full and ended up having to wait 1.30 hours to check in, which was disappointing. However, once our room was ready, we were really happy. It had marina views, a large bed (two singles pushed together as they don't do doubles in Portugal) and was clean and tidy. We were given a complimentary fruit basket and chocs too as Easter gifts.

We were B&B. The breakfast was very good. Choice of cold (continental buffet) and hot food. Freshly squeezed juice, fresh fruit and good selection of bread. Avoid going down between 9.30 and 10am as the queue is out of the door. Best time is 8am.

Lovely newly renovated pool area. Not many sun beds though.

Safe is €10 Euro deposit then 2 euros a day to use. This is not obvious when you first go to use it.

Terrible coat hangers! Take your own if packing suits or dresses as the ones provided are useless!

The location is ideal for the marina and beach. Amazing choice of bars and restaurants to choose from. Prices on par with SW England (3 euros glass of wine, 3.5 euros for beers, average decent meal 50 euros for a couple). Recommend the Zu Yi, (Chinese) and Mayflower (fish and meat) as well as Old Navy (although they charge 3.5 euros cover which is not clear when going in. Irish bar up from Old Navy does live gigs which are excellent.

We recomend hiring a car if you want to get out and about along the Algarve but plenty to do in Vilamoura if going for a short break. Casino really good (mainly slot machines with 3 gambling tables).

Definately recommend this hotel and planning on going back in the Autumn.

(It's 20 mins drive from airport too).

Its centrally located, close to the main shops, the marina, casino. The room is a little dated, but the service is great. If theres any place you need to stay at when visiting portugal the first time is vilamoura or lagos.

I have just returned from another very good stay at the Dom Pedro Marina. Having stayed in Vilamoura many times and at this hotel on more than 12 occasions, I found it yet again an ideal hotel. The staff in particular are both efficient and friendly - many having been at the hotel for several years. Whilst the rooms are probably in need of a minor refurb, they are nevertheless, comfortable and clean - and quite quiet, although that can depend on what floor you are on if the hotel is busy - the lower the floor, the noisier it can be.
Excellent buffet breakfast, with loads of variety. Excellent choice of very reasonably priced restaurants close by around the marina and in the plazas to the rear. Can't wait to go back.
