We booked 2 senior suites, these suites are made up of 2 floors, a living space with full kitchen and shower room on the ground floor and 2 ensuite bedrooms on the first floor... More

Stayed here for a week in the middle of June and could not say 1 bad thing about this hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. We booked a standard room with no balcony but to our surprise were given a room with a balcony. Beds comfortable, nice kitchenette with fridge (makes life so much easier when abroad) beautiful bathroom all cleaned... More

I have visited Vilamoura on at least 10 occasions, this was the second stay at this hotel. We stayed last year and booked a junior suite for the sea view and we did the same this year. The room was great and the view amazing. After last years stay, we realised that the sea view junior suite meant overlooking Purobeach... More

Very clean rooms with great views. The beds are extremely comfortable. The breakfast is plentiful with something for every one. The pool is quite small considering the size of the hotel, but hotel is right on the beach. There is wifi available all over the hotel, room and pool area included. Only downside enterainment is poor

We have stayed in Vilamoura a few times, this hotel would not have been my first choice if the booking had been totally my decision as I deliberated about staying at Crown Plaza which is located a little further away from the marina area, however this was a last minute break , common sense prevailed and we needed to be...
