We spent one week at the Vila Vita Park. So we are able to sum up our positive and rather negative impressions.
Let's start with the positive side:
- a very good cuisine
- the interior of the hotel: very luxurious, Portuguese stylish and enjoyable
- the notel buildings are surrounded by a hugue and very beautiful well kept park; there is an access to a small beach area nearby the hotel;
- using the flexible hotel shuttle, you can go to the beach restaurant of the hotel (Arte Nautica) and make long beach walks nearby the small and (ugly) village of Armacao de Pera
- the very friendly and helpfull staff
- the perfect facilities (swimming pool, fitness room)
There are however some critical points:
- when you plan dinner in one the main restaurants (we didn't experience the two star restaurant Ocean), you should be aware of a very considerable time span between the courses (and at the time of our stay there was no huge occupancy!).
- in some restaurants (ex.: Aladin Grill) you have to pay a surplus even when staying at half board.
Finally, but that is a point we cannot blame for the hotel, we made our flight to the Algarve from Brussels with the Portuguese TAP: we were not impressed by the ponctuallity and customer service of the aviation company.
General conclusion: the Vila Vita Parc is a very enjoyable luxury hotel in the Algarve. We look back to a great stay during the Christmas days 2012.
