“very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We arrived without a booking because the place we had arranged to stay at was to say the least sub standard. We walked in to reception and asked if they had availability and at what price,We were offered a room on the 8th floor with a balcony and stunning view over the harbour and town which was just what we hoped for. We stayed for a week and had a really good holiday. The staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant,and we would recommend this hotel to anyone. We were spoiled for choice with restaurants in the harbour area and It Is a great place to stroll around in the evening. The only problem is that you will need earplugs to keep out the noise of revellers going home late at night if it is warm enough to sleep with the windows open.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the 8th floor with a balcony big enough to take a dozen people with ease.

Although the hotel is situated near the harbor of Vilamoura it had his best time years ago. Only 1 elevator activated and staying at the 7th floor you can wait a long time. The bathroom is ok, but after a shower stinks a lot! Large rooms and a full option compensate slightly the before mentioned disadvantages. Service at the front desk can be compared with the former eastern countries.

Room Tip: Ask for the front rooms with view over the harbor.

Was more than suprised when we arrived. Lovely open plan apartment with a bedroom off the sitting room. We stayed on the 5th floor which had a balcony which over looked the marina. The restaurants around the marina are 5 stars could not fault any of them. Well worth a stay. I'm planning my return for 2013 already.

this is our fourth winter there we go for a month over christmas and new year ,this year it was very quite but its with the recesian ,the apartments are very large and clean ,even on christmas morning the maids came in to make the beds and empty the rubbish bins ,clean towels every day ,bedding twice a week ,you can knock up a quike meal if you want but we stick to salads and snacks in the apartment and go out every couple of nights ,its a bit dear in the marina but if you walk up to quitiria its very nice and not expensive ,if you walk to the end of the baech you come to a lovely beach bar veretone makes for it you can sit in the sun all day have a snack and drink ,a small beer and glass of wine is 2 euros 30 cents ,in vilamara our favourite resterant is the concord lovely food and service

Room Tip: if you go in winter ask for a room on the pool side you get the sun the marina side is good with lov...

It's more of an aparthotel. It's an old building, needing some extensive renovation. But the rooms are big and clean. A big balcony and living room.
The good thing is the price. Specially considering the location. 50 meters from the marina.
Breakfast is basic but does the job.

Shabby 2 star rooms, very poor lighting in corridors, night club on ground floor that open until 6am. The breakfast was just pig slop and coffee like sludge. The only thing its got going for it, is its location. Just one minute walk to the harbor.

Forget the four stars that must of been in the 70's, its a two star lads away getting drunk hotel.

Room Tip: The higher the better to get away from the noise

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Olympus is now a Luna hotel and has been renamed Olympus Suites. It is essentially an "aparthotel" which provides rooms which are self-catering (there is a microwave, fridge freezer and two hobs for knocking up a snack) with breakfast. Flat screen TV with some satellite channels - but the most uncomfortable sofa from which to watch it!! Don't expect luxury and you will not be disappointed. However, the hotel does provide clean, basic accommodation in a convenient location in the middle of Vilamoura. There is a swimming pool with sunbathing area and a small bar. The breakfast provided alternates daily (one day fried and boiled eggs and the next tortilla and scrambled eggs) with bacon, continental sausage, beans, mushrooms. Continental meat/cheese selection, fruit, cereals, juice, coffee, selection of breads. It is not luxury standard but is perfectly OK for a 4 night stay and enough to keep a golfer going through a round!!!! I have stayed at this hotel on a golf break on about 4 occasions over the last 6 years and return because the rooms are a good size with a good sized "living" area. There is always ample hot water for showers. It is also very quiet despite having big groups of golfers staying.

Room Tip: Two bedroom suites are very roomy. Back of hotel avoids road noise.
