Stayed here in May for 4 nights and I found the staff excellent and the room was great.
The hotels is close enough to Vilamoura without been in the heart of things, A taxi from the rank at the back of the marina never cost me more than 5 euro. The shuttle bus rang regularly in the evening and you would have to queue sometimes, but I never waited longer than 15 minutes.
Like other reviews, towel dropping is an issue at the pool, a couple placed towels on beds beside me at 11am and come back at 3pm and just handed them back in, never using the sun lounger once. I can only imagine the issues when the high season comes and I think the hotel need to enforce their own rules on this.
Poolside expect to pay 5 star prices, a can of coke & 1.5l of water costs 8.50 euro, this really is too much to pay and I actually think it serves as a disincentive for buy more. I'd reckon they would sell more if they dropped the pricing as most people made one purchase or just got what they needed from the nearby Ali Super.
The hotel provided free wifi which was great for checking emails and surfing the web, the speeds are pretty slow though, I got about 1mb download so dont think you will do any kind of serious work or stream movies over it.
Breakfast is run very efficiently considering how busy it is, the cold buffet is good, plenty of fresh fruit etc but the hot breakfast can be hit & miss depending on how long the food is sitting there.
Overall I liked this hotel and would return again
