Amazing medical spa with lots of option, huge gardens in the resort as well and great rooms. Lots of pools and access to the beach too. It ticks all the boxes, thier are more luxury hotels but great value for money and good for families

Left two weeks ago the Villalara. The time spent was incredible. The hotel itself it is impeccable, the grounds, the pools and the staff. All was seamless. Stayed in one of the swimming pool view rooms but now, knowing the hotel, a garden view would be our choice. All staff was really helpful and professional. The restaurant is a bit... More

The location and surroundings are marvellous. The service did not meet my expectations by far. I did not utilise the medical services but in terms of reception, the destination survives on past laurels. We stayed 1 night, reserved a table in person for our anniversary (the reservation was accepted) only to arrive and see all tables taken and we were... More

We really enjoy the friendly atmosphere at the resort, as well as the well maintained gardens and spacious room. Breakfast was ok, but could have been better if they produced little & often, rather than making big stacks of food that sat around for a while. Rooms were clean and comfortable, with sufficient space for all our clothes in the... More

This hotel has a series of quirky buildings, set in beautifully landscaped gardens, with great views of the sea. We were thrilled with the overall look and feel of the place when we arrived. Sadly, there have been a number of annoyances occurring throughout our stay, and as a result, we won't be returning to this hotel. Firstly, as a... More

My wife and I spent 11 cloudless days in a pool view room near the spa in late June. This was our second visit, the first two years ago. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff attentive and the restaurant service was Claridges + genuine smiles. The only danger is to your budget. The place is so alluring you will find... More

We spent 1 week with our 2 teenage daughters and everybody had an absolutely fantastic vacation. First of all we were stunned by the beautyful cliffside pool and restaurants with a panoramic view of the Atlantic ocean. Secondly we enjoyed the extremely comfortable, comtemporary rooms - despite the heat, the rooms are cool. We had a poolside room and really... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
50 kilometres from Faro airport (FAO, ALgarve - Portugal), the Blue&Green Vilalara Thalassa Resort is a lakeside haven of style, comfort and exclusivity. As you gaze out and enjoy the setting you will realize the resort’s true essence and magic. This is a fascinating place where every detail has been designed for your wellbeing. Located on the Praia das Gaivotas cliff overlooking the sea, with a 12-hectare area consisting mainly of magnificent gardens, the Resort has 100 junior suites, 11 suites and 13 apartments. The low-rise architecture is marked by soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. It includes one restaurant of Portuguese cuisine and gourmet, low-calorie menus, and another with theme dinners and barbecues. It also features six outdoor pools of fresh and sea water and one of its main trademark images: the Thalassotherapy and Spa Center, the first in Portugal and one of the most respected in the world. soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. ... more   less
