We visited again for the second year running and loved it. It is such an easy, relaxed and laid back experience, and once you settle into that way of life, you can not go wrong! The breakfast buffet was again amazing (although on our last day, they changed the hot plates system and I was not convinced by it). The... More

I travelled with a group of single friends and loved staying at the hotel where everything lived up to our high expectations. We were on a half board basis and were able to eat in all of the restaurants using credits. Service was usually brilliant, particularly in the Koi and Mamma Mia restaurants, but the portuguese themed venue needs some... More

Visited for 11 night in June for a wedding. Check in was incredibly slow taking almost 45 mins including wait. Rooms were stunning clean and well equipped. Shower superb. Now to the not so good bits.... Drinks are ridiculously expensive. €3.50 for a litre of water is daylight robbery. Buffet was always superb in the morning but lacked consistency at... More

the hotel is really good located with the ocean front. Rooms are wonderfull . Restaurants are very nice . The only bad point is the service for non portuguese speaking clients . The spa is also a very nice place , and so on for the fitness room . swimming pools and kiti bar are lovely and funny places .

My son and his wife recently got married in Albufeira and had their reception at the Vidamar Hotel. What can I say only that the whole day was wonderful. We were amazed by the outdoor setting for the drinks reception and of course the food itself. Everything was wonderful especially the selection of food The whole day was totally relaxed... More
