“5 night memorable break at the Four Seasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

From the moment we booked, to the confirming call the following day from Bridgette we knew we have made the right choice. Taxi also booked for us at the same time.
We had booked a 5 night stay at the hotel in a studio flat but advised that we had to move after the third night. All the move was handled by the staff and the accommodation we received was a 1 bedroom apartment. We couldn't believe our luck. We were pleased with the studio but the 1 bedroom flat was spacious on the ground floor facing the golf course. An evening meal on the hotel was provided as a thank you and we could not fault their attention to detail and offer of assistance when ever required. We were even allowed to hold onto our room for 3 hours longer on the morning of our departure.
We would certainly come back to this hotel as the previous ratings and recommendations certainly lived up to expectations. Well done Four Seasons. First class service.

Room Tip: Had the use of 2 rooms during our 5 night stay and both were very good. Don't think there are an...

Thank you for your kind review, lovely compliments and excellent rating. We would be very happy to see you again and welcome you back.

Liked the hotel and the facilities but didnt like the location...
We were ok not staying in the centre of the resort , but usually if you are on the outskirts there is still some facilities. But not around here im afraid . For this reason only we have to think if we return .
Everty thing else was good , easy jet to Faro was on time and the taxi company yelllowfish taxi were great , on time , wifi in the car and well priced .
But the location was not good.If that isn't important to you, then book it.

We are pleased that you enjoyed our resort and facilities. The 'Old Village' is a mere 100 meters from our gate and has some bars, restaurants and a grocery store, but if you need more the main town and marina are only about 15 minutes by foot.
I sincerely hope that our location will not be the factor that deters any future visit.

We stayed in the 4 seasons for two weeks and we're blessed ith lovely weather. The complex was everything were expected but it didn't over delver in any aspect. The apartments were lovely but there seemed to be something missing from the resort. The food was ok- not great but the pool area was really nice. The complex is about 30 min walk (downhill) to marina - its only a 5 min taxi ride, costing €5, very cheap. Some really fantastic restaurants around but you hav to travel away from the marina to find them. Would we stay again yes,- but it's expensive- comparatively so- we have booked our next holiday again to villamoura but not to the 4 seasons - its just too expensive for wht you get- we have opted to hire a villa privately.

We are pleased that the weather was favourable for your holiday and that everything met with your satisfaction.
We feel that our prices are wholly competitive in comparison with the other resorts in the area, especially when one considers the facilities and services that we offer. I am sorry that you do not feel the same, and also that you will not be visiting us for your next trip to Vilamoura.

We holiday here regularly and love it. There is a rolling programme of renovations underway and we could see that the apartment we were in had improvements to the bathrooms and aparently all the mattresses have been replaced. We have had several apartments and all have been good, the only time we had any problems the staff were very helpful in getting it sorted. The apartment we had this time was really conveniently situated, nice view to gardens and pools, the only drawback was some noise from the kitchens but that was a very minor inconvenience.

Everything is scrupulously clean, the maid service is excellent and the pools and gardens are beautifully maintained. We ate at the pool bar and the outside restaurant area several times which do casual food such as sandwiches, salads, burgers, and light meals at reasonable prices. The theme evenings are excellent value.

The staff in this resort are all brilliant, they are friendly, helpful and provide an excellent service. Reservations, reception, bar, restaurant, cleaning and outdoor staff were all amazing and are a big part of what makes this resort so good. Each time we go we meet people who have been back for years and years and I hope we will too.

Well done Four Seasons!

Room Tip: Rooms 68-75 are the closest to the kitchens and may hear a bit of clattering of pots and pans but it...

In September 2011 I completed my review of this fabulous resort stating that we hoped to return having no idea that we would be lucky enough to return just 2 years later, for 2 weeks this time and our stay was even better than our first!
The reservations staff, Bridget in particular, were incredibly helpful and allocated a fabulous 2 bedroom apartment to us overlooking the pool but in a quiet spot with a view of the sunset. It had everything we needed and more; very comfortable, huge bed, 2 balconies (one with sun loungers and one with table and chairs), all manner of kitchen equipment and a tumble dryer and washing machine. We could also have hired a DVD player had we wanted to. The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival and was cleaned every couple of days to a high standard.
There have been some strange comments regarding the restaurant food and the themed evenings. We enjoyed an excellent evening meal in the restaurant on the first night and of particular note was the rich seafood soup which we enjoyed so much that we had it on a further 2 occasions for lunch. We went to 2 of the themed evenings, the BBQ evening where once again the food was not cooked on the Barbeque and the Portuguese evening where it was. Both evenings were well attended and we certainly enjoyed the food which we felt was reasonably priced both for the themed evenings and in the restaurant. Incidentally, the restaurant was open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner as an alternative to the themed evenings. There is also a takeaway service and there is a selection of restaurants just minutes’ walk away in the Old Village. It is very rare for us to eat at the place where we are staying, preferring to eat in a variety of restaurants, but, in this case we could certainly recommend the food, service and it’s great if you just want a short stroll to your apartment.
This time I am giving The Four Seasons 5 stars and, once again, hope to return in a couple of years’ time

Stayed at Four Seasons Vilamoura 13/9/2013 for 1 week. Rented a 2 bedroom apartment and it was fantastic. Very clean and well maintained. Toaster not working on arrival but replaced without fuss in no time at all. Apartment was huge !
Had lunch a few times and food was excellent and reasonably priced for a hotel.
The 3 swimming pools outside were lovely and the indoor one even better. Jacuzzi good too. Sunbeds no problem although this was mid September.
A pleasant walk to the Marina through the Old Village could be done in 15-20 mins. Taxis cost about 5 euros eachway and we never had a problem getting one. Waited no more than 5 minutes.
Only minor downside I can think of was our Apartment was directly above the kitchen area and they could be a little noisy at times however this will not stop me giving this resort 5 stars. Would most definitely visit again....
