3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A group of us (8 golfers) arrived on Saturday 17 September 2016. We requested (and got) sea view rooms. Across the road was a Eurobeach pavilion. When some of us returned to the hotel prior to midnight - a loud disco was in full swing. The music was so loud that it seemed that our bedroom was in the middle... More

Decent hotel in a very good location close to the Marina and the beach. Nice pool, lots of sun loungers, lovely spa and massage, towels provided and friendly staff. However the reception could do with more staff to handle busy check-in periods. Also more staff at breakfast (particularly to make eggs) would be good. My main reason for a low... More

Used in Sept 2016 for a golf holiday (as I imagine the majority of people do during the summer) The hotel itself is pretty large and situated near the marina (5 min walk) and directly behind the swimming pool you will find the beach. My only negative comments (and it might have just been a bad week) is the bar... More

We have stayed here twice now and I dont think we'll bother staying anywhere else whenever we visit in future. The location is perfect - right on the beach! The pool and bar are brilliant and the facilities in the rooms are great (superior sea view is recommended). The reception staff helped sort our airport transfer out when BA made... More

Stayred here for a week in August. The hotel is in an excellent location - minutes from a great beach and a short walk to the Marina, Restaurants and Bars. The hotel is clean, it is air conditioned which was great as temperatures were high. Reception could be a little slow dealing with check-ins and check-outs. One quibble - a... More

We have visited Vilamoura many times but our trip in September was the first time we had stayed in this particular hotel having wanted to stay here for many years now. The hotel occupies a nice beach side location and although being set back from the marina where all of the resorts bars and restaurants can be found, these are... More

Firstly the location is excellent, easy walk to the marina. Staff are mainly helpful and polite. We had a lovely spacious junior suit with lovely seaview. Breakfast buffet is good but can be busy. Pool area is lovely. The Spa is beautiful but here's where it falls down. Our stay was for 5 days, but on 3 occasions we used... More

Nice hotel, very busy with golfers etc, which is fine, actually it's no harm as they are gone most of the day playing golf , so sun loungers are free!
