Service from start to finish has been out of this world! 10/10 all round! We booked via alpha rooms to initially stay at the Velamar hotel which was unfortunately closed due to under occupancy. We were relocated to this hotel and it did not disappoint. Check-in - we arrived quite late. Check in was quick and safety measures were reiterated following the new covid-19 guidelines. Rooms - we had a standard double. It was spacious, bathroom was lovely and we even had a partial sea view! Staff - the staff at this hotel have went above and beyond during our trip. The staff at this hotel work extremely hard and it doesn’t go unnoticed - keep up the fantastic work!!! Pool/ beach - pool area was really well kept and it was nice to see it getting a little busier nearing the end of our stay. The beach is a short 5 minute walk from the hotel which was a huge plus for me! This was our first visit to Portugal and it definitely will not be our last! We loved everything about the place and upon return will definitely be staying here! Thanks for having us, it’s been a blast!

Thought I should post something as the global situation has changed immeasurably since the last review. Traveled with a friend, booked in December through an online agent. Had a bit of trouble with cards being accepted and paid in euros in the end. Not sure what the issue was but it was a great deal. I contacted the hotel twice via email , initially to request a room with twin beds on a high floor which was acknowledged and again via email for descriptions of the covid restrictions. Good response both times from reception. I called the hotel a few days prior to travel for an update and got a call center which was able to assist. Upon arrival, masks are required inside the hotel, obviously barring your room and it is enforced which we found reassuring. All facilities were available, pool, spa, bar etc but the roof terrace was locked which was unfortunate as would have been ideal to view the sunset. The room was great, we ended up with a double instead of twin beds but they are huge beds so we barely noticed the other there. Acceptable shower pressure for the top floor, shampoo and shower gel in fixed full size bottles over the bath. Good quality too. We had a superior room with side sea views and agree with past reviews there aren't really enough plug sockets near the main mirror. Plugs are under the bedside shelves for phone charging. We also found the kettle didn't work, although oddly coffee pods were available from request at reception but not actually in the room. Really loved the sheets, matress and pillows! We emptied the fridge on arrival so we could use it for our own items from the supermarket round the corner and there was no issue. Location is great for the strip, we enjoyed the walk to the old town and got a tuk tuk back often from the top of the escalators. Prices ranged from 7€ to 10€° Reception staff, probobly the best I've encountered and I holiday up to 3 times a year! Breakfast was odd as the usual do a buffet and I imagine they are still finding their way. It did feel awkward, this could be resolved by providing a menu of items available. Cracking quality though! One concern was one morning there were actual seagulls taking food from the tables and begging for food. They were gone the next day thankfully. Didn't try the spa. Pool was adequate, definitely not heated but I'm fussy unless it's set to 25 degrees! Good to cool off and immaculately tended. The actual resort was quiet from what we heard but this was my first visit, we had no trouble finding great food and if you were in a bar by eleven could generaly stay until 2am. Visited Villamoura in an uber and was just about as busy as I remember. Check out was friendly and efficient, in all really did feel like a holiday despite the situation and wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Loved the Modern touches of this Hotel. The staff was very accommodating. Rooms were comfy and clean. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to COVIN-19, but would definitely go back and recommend to anyone. Great location. Walk to the Strip. Thanks for taking care of us !

The plus: Sea view from the room (deluxe room), a lot of tv channels, good breakfast, live music at night and great location close to the famous Strip Albufeira. The minus: Small room, amenities not refilled, weird AC noise, old furniture and not much space to store all clothes.

Our second stay in Albufeira for 2 weeks. We like this area compared to old Albufeira because the strip offers so much and is busier , and easier to get around. The hotel has direct beach access,and surrounded by condos called Quinta Pedra dos Bicos . The reception for both accommodation is located in the hotel. You can either rent the apartments or the hotel rooms , either way you eat breakfast in same restaurant. We stayed in the hotel but asked to view the apartments, and were impressed by the size of apartments (same price as hotel rooms but sea view better in hotel). The reviews reflect exactly our expectations...no surprises. There is construction next to the complex but did not bother us. Cleaning service was great, so was reception, and breakfast was excellent. The restaurant is surrounded by glass so you feel outside while you eat. Also you can eat on the patio or simply finish your breakfast on the patio with a coffee. Parking was directly in front of hotel and the street utilized by complex guests only. Rooms are sized ok but balcony is too small. We chose a sea view room and glad we did because the front rooms face the apartments, and ours were overlooking a lush forest with views of ocean and Falésia. Food for us meant breakfast in hotel and out to restaurants for evening meals. You will find about 20 different restaurants within 500 yards of the hotel. Our favourites were Ribeiro, Pauli’s, and the Casa Velma next to the Old House bar. Happy hour was at the Old House (best sangria for 7 euros/jug) ,and Coyote bar right in front. The Inter Marché grocery is 300 feet away so you can load up with all your needs and walk back to your room in 10 minutes. We took time to go visit other resorts we had contemplated before booking the Aqua hotel, but the environment at our place was the best.
