“Luxury at it's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is one of my favourite hotels. I could not get over how helpful and friendly the staff were. They could not do enough to help and they were really attentive to my daughter who was only one and a bit the time!
From the moment you step in, the reception area looks absolutely stunning! The colour scheme is bright with a modern and very chic feel to the hotel.
The rooms are comfortable and very modern; this feel runs throughout the whole place.
The food on site is absolutely amazing. The buffet I had on arrival was about €50 BUT it was worth every penny. There were steaks, fresh fish you could choose and have them grill on the spot, humungous prawns, various meats... You name it, you got it. They have beautiful pool areas where you can have cocktails that taste divine.
The hotel is a very short walk from the beach so a stroll down to the beach is a must. The Marina also has a fab feel. Awesome boats/yachts to look at with restaurants (oh and there are great ones nearby - I think there's one called the Mayflower- 5*!!! You have to book in advance to eat there and when you do you'll know why!) nearby also.

I completely loved this place. I am very fussy and there was nothing here I could fault.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on a higher floor maybe, just for total silence but this hotel is very chic... You won...

This is a fantastic Hotel with all rooms having either a sea view or Marina view balcony. I think the Marina view is a better option as there is allways something going on!!!

Amazing breakfast which can be eaten in or out - with champagne on the breakfast buffet - great start to the the day!!!!
Pool and beach area great, very clean and bar access good, if a little pricy drinks.
Great place to chill out and good location to stroll down the marina and shops and excellant bars /restaurants in the evening.

Staff great, rooms large and well equipped, good experience overall.

Room Tip: Choose Marina view as there is always something to watch!

I love Easyjet and I love tivoli marina!

Do not listen to bad reviews everyone is telling a lot of lies!

Tivoli marina really is something special service is outstanding, laying around the pool with waitress service, gorgeous room the beds are truly so comfortable we had a early flight home and I didn't want to get out of my bed!

The puro beach looks good but because we went non peak nothing was out but will be definitely taking a trip back in the summer months!

Romance, relaxing, family, business this hotel has it all.

The food is amazing, service is brilliant and the overall location and staff are amazing!

Visit this hotel now!!!!!!!!!!!

Our first visit to Vilamoura. This hotel is situated between the marina and the beach. In off season the marina was quiet and the beach windy! The hotel itself is ok, maybe more UK 4 star. Our room on the 3rd floor was tidy and had a comfy double bed. The bathroom was spacious but had very slippery floors when wet. Nespresso machine in the room but they charge 2 euros per capsule, so take your own! Breakfast was ok but the dinner was very good. Exellent service and most helpfull and acommodating staff. The big negative was the spa. Very slippery floors, no dissabled changing rooms nor hand rails anywhere! Avoid if you have any movement issues. Portugal is going through an economic crisis and unfortunately this means increasing crime, there have been a couple of muggings lately at the marina so avoid walking there late at night. I would recommend for an off season wknd break.

Room Tip: Beach side for quietness, marina if you like watching boats going by. 3rd floor and up for refurbish...

TIVOLI MARINA VILAMOURA has now more than 25 years but was recently renovated to keep its five stars shining. As in all TIVOLI hotels, you can expect good accommodation, plenty of services, an excellent breakfast and an exceptional staff.

LOCATION:
Exceptionally located in the very heart of Vilamoura, between the main beach and the marina. Vilamoura’s casino and the best bars, restaurants, night clubs and shops are on sight.

FACILITIES:
The building is huge but is surprisingly well integrated in Vilamoura’s cosmopolitan landscape. The lobby is magnificent in terms of space, natural light, quality and luxury. Decoration is in modern style with some works of art giving it a special human touch. There is also big private garden with direct access to the beach, where you can find the outdoor pool and bars and restaurants.

ROOM:
Stayed in a deluxe room facing the beach. It is a relatively small room compared with the modern five star hotels, but we have to take into account that the building has a quarter of a century. The word “deluxe” is well applied in the room concept: recently refurbished, it has modern decoration, luxury materials and electronic equipment and the famous TIVOLI T-bed, which in my opinion is one on the most comfortable beds one can find in a hotel. Bathroom is good enough but it does not have the quality of the rest of the room.

SERVICES:
Room service is very good. Besides regular cleaning, you can expect to receive weather forecasts and chocolates when the room maid asks you if you want the bed to be opened. There is a mini-bar (expensive) and an internet wi-fi connection which unfortunately is not free. There are many bars and restaurants which provide wide choices of menus and prices. TIVOLI also provides the so called T-experiences which consist of various activities the hotel can provide you at your demand. Did not use the outdoor pool nor the interior pool, but they seemed to be Ok. On the other hand, I was very disappointed with the SPA, as it is completely outdated and in urgent need of renovation. You can take a complimentary delicious ice tea in the lobby. Check-in and check-out occurred with no problems or delays. All the hotel staff is extremely polite and helpful.

BREAKFAST:
It has the superb quality and variety that TIVOLI normally offers. You can find literally everything that is supposed to be in a continental, American or British breakfast. Nevertheless, I still cannot understand why there is no natural orange juice available as the hotel is located in the Algarve.

Room Tip: Be sure to pick a deluxe room to have a real five star experience. Standard rooms will give you a wr...

if you want 5 star in vilamoura then stay in the lake resort !! we stayed there last week but due to it closing we had to move and what a let down that was. our double room was two single beds pushed together dirty floors in our bathroom the worst breakfast ever disgussing sausages cold tea and coffee uninterested staff poor service woke by the hotel deciding to take down and start hammering the marquee they had up for the summer at 7am!!! the only positive thing is the view overlooking the harbour end of im afraid if you have any experience of 5 stars dont go here as you will be dissapointed however you wount be disapointed if you go to the lake resort pure class

Room Tip: make sure you tell them you dont want two single beds together
