“Basic items cost extra (wifi and room safe)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights in Oct-13, hotel has a very central location very close to the marina. Sea view rooms are not quite sea view as the hotel is not located next to the beach, its a little misleading. Breakfast is reasonably average, buffet style.
Rooms and bathrooms are good size but quite old furniture. However the big complaint is that wifi is not included and costs extra, not really acceptable nowadays, it should be included. Also the room safe costs extra (you are required to rent a plastic key to activate it), no hotel should charge extra for the safety of your valuables, it should be included.
Also because corridors are tiled, it can be very noisy in the mornings with doors slamming and suitcase wheels clicking on the tiles.

I have given glowing Reviews of this Hotel which in one way as another we have used since Day one either purely as a Customer or as a owner of 2 weeks in the Presidential Suite, Our weeks are in November and this year we were hoping to spend another great weeks in the Apartment.
Since our Purchase for 1 week in 2006 and a further week in 2008 in exchange for our Time Share Weeks. Last year we made the mistake of going to another Resort but missed our weeks in Vilamoura. so were really looking forward to our return to our Apartment, only to find that it will be Closed for the Winter, this happened once before only to be told of the closure by our Taxi Driver when Transfering from Faro to Vilamoura so we had to make other arrangements. This looks like closure in the Winter could be the Norm therefore we will lose our 2 weeks in the Presidential Apartment with its own Jaccuzi Large Balcony and great Views.
The Staff in all the Dom Pedros are great but of the 3 we love the DP Marina the best for its intimacy and friendly Staff and of course its closeness to the Marina.
To say the least we are very disappointed and that the Economic Climate has made the regretful decision to close. i KNOW THERE WILL BE MANY clients who like us have used the Hotel during the Winter Months.

Room Tip: Check with Reception whether it is open During the Winter.

Have just come home after a long week-end at the Dom Pedro Marina. The staff were all very helpful, despite arriving early, our rooms were ready, allowing us to change and make our afternoon tee-time. Breakfast is well presented, offering the usual European fare, a good selection of cold meats and cheese as well as hot food and plenty of fruit. The outside terrace provides the opportunity to have breakfast outside. The terrace is also a good place for pre-dinner drinks. The pool area is also very good.
Standard rooms are a little small but well equipped however lower floors do not have much of a view, unless over the pool.
Locally there are many restaurants to satisfy all tastes, it is only two minutes to the Marina.
One point to note, if using the hotel shuttle to the Oceanico Golf Courses, make sure you book them early at reception as they do not always come on time !
Overall a good place to spend a few days.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, great position with easy parking, only booked B&B, but snacks ok during day if required. No free wifi, only an old PC. Which was as slow as a mule but free of charge.

There are three 'Dom Pedro' hotels in Vilamoura, the Dom Pedro Marina has the best position for, restaurants, beach and Marina Bars.

My husband and I spend a wonderful 9 days, at the hotel for our anniversary in September, the staff really couldn't have be more helpful especially with my husbands condition and so so friendly. I would also like to thank Captivating Travel for all their help in getting us over there, they go out of their way to help what ever the problem maybe .Off with them again shortly. They seriously can't do enough to help. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Love the senior suites, great space, and to bathrooms really helped.

this was my second visit to this hotel the last time 3yrs ago. this time found it to be lacking atmosphere and rooms etc. looking very tired.the staff were very nice and helpful.this hotel location is also very good but lacks a lot of the facilities of other 4 star hotels nearby.

Room Tip: sea views are not great and most of them overlook the pool as well
