“Luxury with a warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Here is a five star hotel that is simply stunning. The design, finish and style of the whole place is a testament to an eye for detail. Add to that staff that really love their jobs, attentive, warm and friendly this is a place we will return to over and again. Whilst it is a new hotel and opened just recently it is a place to come and enjoy and indulge yourself, great pools, fitness and sauna, beautiful settings that overlook lovely countryside it is very relaxing and very special. Finally the food will win awards!

Room Tip: I am not sure there are any bad rooms, you can opt to overlook the infinity pool

This Hotel is heaven on earth! From the moment you step inside its very very special! All of the staff without exception were attentive, professional , friendly and welcoming, what a triumph !!! We did not want to leave, having gone in for a drink we stayed for dinner and 4 hours later we were still there!!! The knowledge of the staff was impressive particularly the wine waiter.

We experienced the taster menu, which was a delight! We cannot praise or recommend this hotel enough! Rush to the algarve and do not miss out on this amazing experience!

What an excellent place to meet with business colleagues and network with our clients. We visited the Conrad for a networking event and was greeted by smiling and attentive staff. Great attention to detail and excellent service offered by your waiting staff. We will definitely be returning and recommending this venue to other business colleagues for future events. Well done to all the staff at the Conrad!

My husband & I took a much needed trip to Algarve for a late anniversary celebration. We were looking for a place to relax, indulge in some great food, and be treated like royalty and with the Conrad Algarve we got just that and more! From the moment we landed at the airport & were whisked away in the Cayenne till we were deposited back at the airport 3 days later we were in heaven. The Conrad is a designer haven, no detail was forgotten. From the custom chandeliers done by a Scottish designer to the cushions, desks at check in, and there was nothing spared when decorating our suite! The staff was awesome! They were professional, helpful, friendly, & accommodating! We were upgraded to a suite overlooking the pool. It had a wonderful balcony and sitting area inside with all the amenities you would ever need! Want to watch TV while lounging in the bath? Go for it! We used the spa twice while at the Conrad & were very pleased with massages, the sauna, pools, steam room, & spa staff. So don't skip the opportunity to indulge! Breakfast couldn't have been any better! Wonderful selection plus ala carte items available and the staff was helpful & friendly! We had dinner at Louro & Gusto by Heinz Beck and very pleased in every way! The only drawback with our stay is that we enjoyed it so much we have to get busy planning a trip for the summer!

Room Tip: We were in room 530 overlooking the pool it was perfectly lovely!

What an amazing experience it was staying at the Conrad Algarve. Thank you for treating us so well. We stayed for a birthday treat and would definitely return. Stunning bedroom, loved the attention to detail from the staff, great TV at the end of the bath, free in-room coffee. You need to change your phrase to 'luxury of being treated like a VIP'. Very personal service. We stayed at a similar hotel last year and didn't get half that attention. Fantastically designed bedrooms, especially the lighting, hidden doors to the bathroom, toilet and the see-through shower wall. Very elegant uniforms for the female staff. Would recommend the Louro Portuguese restaurant for a big, tastey meal and great breakfast with buckets of Champagne on ice. Thank you so much. Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Check in as early as you can to make the most of the experience.

This is a beautiful hotel with a beautiful pool. The infinity pool is heated (at least in October/Nov) when we were there and it was truly magnificent. The pool attendant was extremely attentive and generally the service was top notch. The only thing that let it down was the fact that the jacuzzi in the covered pool area was freezing and despite raising the issue, no one seemed to do anything about it. I was not even offered to take advantage of the jacuzzi in the spa area which is a shame as its the main thing that I look forward to in a every hotel that I book. So I was very disappointed. The toiletries are all from Aromatherapy Associates which are gorgeous and the TV in the bathroom is a treat.

Although there is a shuttle to the beach, the beach is not really close by - it takes c 10 minutes so not walkable at all. However, the hotel are very accomodating in providing the shuttle.

There is a lovely beach bar (very Hamptons) right on the beach called Marias - really popular and busy even on a rainy day!

I just hope they fix the jacuzzi and then it should be perfect!

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. I am very pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for mentioning the Jacuzzi temperature. We did have a problem indeed and we now managed to fix the Jacuzzi with the right temperature, which should be 28/29 degrees. Quality is a main concern for us hence we will continuously work on improving our services and I thank you for your suggestions which we will take on board. We hope to have the pleasure of your company again.

Excellent hotel staff friendly and eager to please,breakfast well presented and plenty of choice rooms very comfortable and very well appointed one small hiccup but handled with haste and professionalism.would highly recomend a stay at this luxury hotel, and hope that the high standards will remain ongoing.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms overlook fountains but better rooms to be had with view at the rear of the hotel.
