“Nice, clean and tidy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Me and my friend spent a week at the Gloria Palace Amadores in the beginning of march. We didn'n expect much but we were pleased with our stay. It was a nice and clean hotel, very nice staff and a lovely spa with a range of treatments. Most of the staff spoke very well english and the staff in the restaurants were very friendly. The food was nice, i think, for a buffé, maybe a bit tasteless sometimes. We had a complaint in the room at one time and they were fixed that very quick. This is not a luxorious palace, but for one week relaxing holiday it was perfect for us! Nice rooms, nice pools. The one thing we did not enjoy were the daily entertainment, not very suited for the guests, and felt cheap and maybe for a more touristic hotel.

Just back from 14 days stay with my sister at Gloria Palace Royal Hotel on an all inclusive basis.
We have been there before, an enjoyed every moment. For us it is perfect, the friendly , efficient and personal treatment by the staff, the spacy well equipped room, always spotlessly cleaned with fresh towels and on request extra matrasses. We enjoyed the wide choice and varity of the delicious food of high quality. The location and the view from the wonderfull poolareas are superb and we enjoyed the indoor spa . We will be back.

We have just returned from a stay at the Gloria royal palace ,on an all inclusive basis , and there are good and bad comments to make about this hotel.But I'd just like to point out that I am not one of those people who is never pleased , moans about everything and enjoys picking fault(you know the people I mean!) . Take a look at my other reviews if you don't believe me .

Anyway the good about this hotel :

It's location is fantastic , 5 minutes walk to the white sands and clear water of Amadores beach.
The main outdoor infinity pool is amazing and we really enjoyed swimming to the edge and looking at the view below. The indoor spa pool is also excellent with numerous jets, a sauna and steam room.
The entire hotel is spotlessly clean and the bathrooms have a separate bath / shower. The rooms also have a kitchenette ( more on that later ) and a large balcony with breathtaking sea views.
The buffet for breakfast ,lunch and diner was high quality and the choice was wide and varied ( as a vegetarian I don't normally say that! ).
The service in the salon bar was excellent , fast , polite and they always remembered our order.

The bad ;
Our biggest gripe by far was that all inclusive at this hotel is really not what we expected . Upon arrival , 11pm , we were given a glass of champagne ( lovely!) and told that a cold diner was waiting for us in the restaurant . The cold dinner consisted mainly of meat and salad , not particularly appetising. We were also not offered a drink and had to make do with the bottled water , the waiter had disappeared. Back in the room there was a mini fridge and despite being all inclusive and the tap water not being drinkable there was nothing in it . Back to reception and we were told we'd have to be charged for water as all inclusive ends at 11.30pm.
Also excluded from all inclusive is the a la carte restaurant , where guests on half board / all in get only a 25% discount.At diner only local wine , beer or soft drinks are included (no local spirits). But they do walk around with a trolley of spirits to entice you , but yet again all inclusive customers have to pay for these , all be it with a 50% discount . A similar occurrence occured daily at the pool wherea lovely chap made fresh cocktails , but again all inclusive customers must pay 50% for them.
The hotel also charges for the safe , 5 euro deposit and 2.40 euro per day . The deposit has to be paid cash , so you cannot just add it to your room.
Another thing is you have to return your beach towels to reception when you check out , otherwise your charged 15 euros per towel .
Some staff at this hotel were very unprofessional , one such member of staff mocked us for saying thank you during the breakfast service !

Overall the facilities and cleanliness at this hotel are excellent . But I would advise against paying extra for all inclusive as you receive very little extra for your money . A few simple changes would have vastly improved our experience at this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to have a high room as the road below is quite busy/noisy .

Everything was perfect, the staff - the room - the balcony and the most delicate food all day.
We would likke to come back to that nice hotel and the wunderfull island which have so much to give.
Try to go to Palmitos park and book a swim with the dolphin,
You will never forget the Hotel and the dolphin.

spent our silver wedding anniversary at the gloria palace amadores arrived 25thfeb for 1 week had a lovely room in block 1 floor 6 over looking the pool and sea the views were amazing there was a bottle of carva waiting for us in the room which was nice and chilled.The room was a good size with a big bed and large bathroom all was spottlessly clean maids came in every day.We paid for a upgrade and im pleased we did because we got to use the spa as much as we wanted it was fantastic. We went half board and the food was lovely we did go out a couple of nights just for a change. The only thing that i wasnt happy about was that 1night we got a couple of drinks to take up to the room and we were charged 10euros which i thought wasnt bad for a 4star hotel but 2nights later we got the same drinks and they had gone up to 15.50 and when i questioned this they said the manager had changed everything i did ask to see the manager but he wasnt there and we were leaving the next day so i just left it. We did have a fab time and i would reccomend this hotel.

We stayed one week in February and enjoyed it very much. Great weather (app. 22 degrees) and perfect location if you want a decent hotel, proximity to the beach (5minutes walk), a safe environment for children and do not need bars and noisy night life. Very friendly staff - great with children. We felt very welcome. The food was nice and varied and room and hotel facilities nice, clean and spacious. Will definitely consider returning some day.

Very good service and servicemindet people works in the hotel. It is good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is over 5'th time and it has been good every time. Lois Santana in the restaurant and the rest of the staff is making the stay good. The healthsenter is good, so is the pools. We will recomind a stay in this hotel.
