VidaMar Resort Algarve is an excellent option for an Algarve holiday, at just steps from the ample sandy stretch of Salgados Beach! The surrounding area is uniquely interesting, mixing proximity to Salgados Lagoon’s Nature Reserve, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and just a few minutes' drive from a golf course! As the name suggests, this resort is much more than just a beach holiday destination! The idea is patently clear in the resort’s , which combines “Life” and “Sea”, added to a complete range of services! The rooms are well equipped, with balconies, free WiFi and plenty of comfort. Each unit comes with a bathroom — featuring plenty of natural light — including a flat-screen TV, air conditioning and a minibar. A tasty daily breakfast is included in the rate, with the hotel also including restaurant options for lunch and dinner within it. VidaMar Algarve also includes bars, a Kids Club and an exclusive area for guests over 16 years old.

Worst 5* hotel I've even been. Its a good 3 star at best. Arrived the night before a wedding. (5pm) told there is no iron and ironing board available and the laundry service starts at 9am. Terrible service and no solution offered. After a complaint to the manager they said at 9am the next day they could do a special express service. I did the express service for 1 hour and the shirts were still creased. I complained again and they eventually sent an iron and no ironing board to my room. So I had to iron my shirt on the bedside table. Additionally when I checked into this overrated hotel I paid for the premium 'pool view room' where I was placed on the ground floor and could not really see the pool. I've attached a photo. Trying to check out they were under staffed on reception and the queues were crazy and creating a crowd of people with no social distancing. I left my key at reception and didn't check out, assuming they will charge me the €10 to iron my own shirts. Both of these trivial incidents are small attention to details that actual 5* rated hotels do not overlook. Vida Mar has zero customer service skills. They will not try to solve problems or go the extra mile. The night before I arrived I stayed at the NAU Salgados Dunas Suites next door for 1 night. It was pure class, friendly helpful staff incredible accommodation and actually cheaper!

Dear guest, Thank you for choosing VidaMar Algarve. We consulted the staff involved in your review, which found you uncooperative with our schedules, COVID-19 safety requirements (i.e. guests must use a mask indoors) and queues. We would also like to inform you that the extra fee charged on your credit card pertains to the Express Laundry Service you declined on your arrival date but demanded the following morning. Our rooms and suites do not include an iron and an ironing in our Facilities/Amenities. Additionally, your booking was for a Superior Double Room with Pool View and not a Premium one, as you can clearly double check with the Agency you booked with, or in your own booking confirmation. Our Premium Rooms are exclusively located on the top floors and are, of course, highly-sought after and command a higher rate. We nonetheless thank you for your feedback and hope to one day have the opportunity to greet you once again. Best regards, The Management

We really enjoyed our stay - spacious room, helpful staff (Nueza, who was always on duty at breakfast,is one of the nicest and most helpful people I have ever met - massive thank you to her for her hospitality), good selection of food for breakfast and dinner (especially considering Covid restrictions and how this had to be managed). You are 100m away from a gorgeous and seemingly quiet beach. The pool is enormous and there are 2 smaller kids' pools. Loads of loungers and umbrellas. We hired a car so could get around as otherwise it could feel a little secluded (if you arent wanting to be at the resort 24/7) and maybe this is a British thing but I wasnt a fan of the frosted glass bathroom door but they seem to be everywhere in Europe! But would recommend the resort for couples and families.

With five-star staff, a perfect location for those who like the beach, ideal pools for those who are younger and older. Before our check-in I read here some comments that today I confirm that are not honest or fair. For them I have only two conclusions, either they never entered in the Hotel or it is even a matter of demanding above what is expected for a five star hotel. I will be back without no doubts! Thank you in my name and in the name of my family!

Been a guest for almost 10 years. This year the hotel has cut costs steeply in dinner and restaurant service. Not good enough for a 5 star hotel, and covid cannot be the excuse. We have spent some time in Spain this summer and the hotel there handled covid restrictions much, much better.

Dear Guest, We would like to thank you for choosing Vidamar Resort Hotel Algarve and for the time to share your experience. We’re sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. We accept and respect your opinion, but do not agree with it. Indeed, Covid is the reason for adjusting the service in our restaurant. In order to guarantee the safety of our guests and staff, following the guidelines of local government Health and Safe legislation, our buffet changed to a served buffet with reservation of schedules. We are sure that all measures have been taken, with the primary concern of everyone's safety. Unfortunately, we were unable to please you and we are obviously sorry for that, but we will continue to work so that VidaMar Resort Hotel Algarve offers safe stays until we are able to return to normalcy before. Kind Regards, The Management

Been in the hotel from 2nd July until 12th. Location is awesome, huge facilites and and amazing garden and seaview. Most of the staff is very helpful and you feel that the are willing to everything possible for you, despite all the changes that everyone was submited to. Daniel Dias (Restaurantes managers) is a 5 star asset. At the breakfast you have Rita, Susana, Neuza, and Cassandre that are rock stars. Pool restaurant, Jorge, Fabio and Tiago and the chefs are also rock stars. We've also been in Mar Club, an adult only space with heated pool, and Ricardo, Carla and Emanuel take good care of us. Lots of fun out there! We have not be able to memorize all the names, but we have seen couple of gentleman that must but the managers, always present everywhere, breakfast, pool, dinner and reception. Felt warm and safe wich nowadays seems to be most important. The food is good and there is plenty of option. Saw couple of clients complaining, but hard to understand especially on these difficult times! A small under: There are some guest that are arrogant, disrepectufl, and seem able to create a constant problem to the staff or even to other clients, like us. (Please stay at home and don't ruin everyone else vacations) Hugo
