“April 17-23 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We booked for 2 weeks in a superior 1 bedroomed apartment. this was in the main complex. the apartment was amazing, it had aircon in the lounge and bedroom, a large balcony 1 bedroom with ample storage space. A proper kitchen with electric 4 ring ceramic hob, oven and microwave and a large fridge freezer. Ample utensils and plates, cups etc. Large lounge with dining area 2 large settees and a 4 place dining table and chairs. the balcony was huge with a pull out airer and a LCD television. the staff were great and the manager Joaquim was very helpful. Our apartment overlooked the pool and we could just see the sea from our balcony. the hotel is quite a way out from Vilamoura, but there is a courtesy bus and the Noddy train as well. there is also a bus stop just round the corner where you can catch the service bus.
Some of the apartments were being updated whilst we were there, this was quite noisy during the day and did spoil our holiday enjoyment. We would go back to these apartments but not until the renovation work has finished. The walk into Vilamoura was exceptional, in that you walk down the middle of the dual carriageway which is actually a keep fit area, there are stations to do exercises and to take water onboard, we used them to have a rest.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are the best in the main complex

Came back from there last Monday 29/04/13, wasnt sure about the place before I went but had the bedt time. The apartment was lovely, large balcony overlooking from of hotel, not at all noisy, spacious, spotless, cleaners were were excellent.My friend & I stayed bed & breakfast, food was tasty & plentyful, only drawback would have liked to sit looking at the pool for breakfast. All the staff were so friendly & helpful. We have both said that would go back any time

Room Tip: ask for an apartment that has been re-furbished & has air conditioning

This is a nice, no frills complex, with lovely gardens, perfect for an out of season bargain break. In a pleasant quiet area; even though we looked out over the road and reception, it was very quiet with little traffic. There are no rowdy bars or restaurants nearby, just a supermarket 5 mins walk, and some bars/cafes about 10 mins stroll away. We used the little road train (2€ each way), or the free shuttle bus to the beaches and marina/town centre. We walked in a few times, a very nice 20-30 min stroll, mostly along a flat beautifully landscaped path. We felt very safe walking on our own. Our 1 bedroom apartment was really nice, well decorated,with huge sliding patio doors out onto a large balcony with table, chairs and washing rack. Take some pegs, as it always seemed to be windy. We found the beds a little too hard, and the bedroom dark and a bit cramped, so we slept (very well) on the sofa beds, only using the bedroom as a 'dressing room'. We had a small galley kitchen, with large fridge/freezer, hob, oven, grill, toaster, microwave, kettle and teapot. There was sufficient crockery, cutlery and utensils, plus an iron and board. We had air conditioning in the lounge and bedroom, and BBC1, Sky news and Film on 4 on a nice modern telly. We were cleaned, bins emptied and given fresh towels 4 times during our 7 night stay. Sheets were changed once, mid week. We found the staff welcoming and helpful at all times, even when we arrived at 1 AM. We were able to print our return boarding cards for 1€, and staff would book us taxi transfers eg to Albufeira (€12 return). There is a charge for internet, but we didn't need it.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor in the Mourabel, overlooking the quiet road if you want to admire the sunset, o...

Great service and the studio was very clean, spacious and well stocked. Towels changed and floors washed daily, more than expected for the price. Gardens and grounds well maintained. Special thanks to Susan for warm welcome and daily greeting!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor studio which was peaceful, easily accessible and very roomy.

We have been visiting here for about 14 years. Because it's the nearest (only) Hotel to our favourite eating place in Vilamoura, the nearby "A. Carpa" and our favoured watering hole " The Cactus Bar".
The grounds and gardens are very well cared for, the Gardener never stops and is a credit to his craft. For those of us engaged in Property Refurbs, our room 27 was a joy. Next door to the Building Site, the sounds of Whizzers, Kangos, Steelwork was a joy. The Building Team didn't start until 0830, so we were gone during the day, so no problems. The room had plenty of hot water, but no plugs to keep it...The handyman took the closer out of the Bidet as the only way to keep water in the bathroom basin. The cleaners are first class and the rooms are looked after. We love the area and will be back again.

Perfect for a visit to Portugal with excellent customer service and very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is with in walking distance the marina where many shops and an excellent variety of eating establishments can be found. The hotel runs a free bus to the beach and the marina, 3 times a day so it is easy for those not able to walk too far/

Room Tip: ask for air conditioning and bbc tv
