Classy hotel with lovely pool and not too noisy!!!!!!!

I am trying to plan a girly trip - more like old woman trip - we are both 48 year olds but go away for a girly week once a year and love to stay in a lovely hotel, great pool area and near to all amenities - we have left the husbands at home so don't want to hire a car or get into taxis, so a fab hotel near the restaurants and luxury during the day - any help.

The trip advisor on the Dom Pedro Marina and The Vila Gale Marina sound terrible - any help greatly appreciated.

Really does depend on how much you want to spend, my least favourite would be the dom pedro Marina! I stay at the Vila Gale marina, this is mainly due to the price, as it is great compared to what you can spend on hotels in vilamoura, and it has great location and graet views if the marina. The tivolli hotel is lovly and the price is steep, i mainly go on holiday to relax in a nice clean hotel and go out to eat in an evening so the vila gale marina suits me, as it is quiet. The lake resort does look nice however it is big, and some of it i think is private apartments.

Vila Gale Ampalius, overlooks the beach, very close to Marina,

the hotel is lovely . We were there new year and met a couple (40/50ish) who came over to the ampalius, because they did not like the Gale Marinia.

We liked it so much went back in March, you wont regret it if you go to the Ampalius I promise you.

I agree - the Marinotel is ideal! I stayed there for the first time last summer with my husband and am returning at the end of this month with my mum (who's fed up with Madeira). Mum & I have a girly week away each year, so I know exactly where you're coming from! (I'm the same age as you, if that's any help). Everything is on your doorstep - plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.

The shopping's great, especially if (like us) you like shoes and costume jewellery. There's a great T-shirt shop by the Haagen Dazs (please excuse my spelling!) ice-cream parlour and plenty of bars where you can have a rest every now and then, have a nice cooling drink and watch the world go by, or simply admire the yachts! There is a Swarowski shop very near to the hotel (ouch!) and I think that there are some designer boutiques, as well.

I like a bit of luxury, but not too much bowing and scraping, if you get my drift. The Marinotel got it just right which is why I'm going back twice this year. BTW - the breakfast is fantastic (I'm now hooked on custard tarts) - you can even have a glass of bubbles if you wish! The maids are fantastic, pop into the rooms 2-3 times per day and leave a choccie for you at night.

I think that it's the perfect place but then, that's up to you! We travel with Sovereign - the price includes taxi transfers and the services of a concierge. If you book online you save 10%.

Good luck and have a great time, wherever you decide to go.
