This is a very good new hotel in the Algarve (probably the best in the region) but it's not perfect.

First the good:
- excellent rooms (really nicely finished)
- very pleasant staff (though service can be slow sometimes)
- quality of food generally very good
- free wifi

But....
- very expensive to eat and drink (however room prices are reasonable) e.g. from memory Euro for a G&T.
- we had a particular problem with wasps - they were everywhere and loads of people were complaining (probably due to unseasonably warm weather)
- for a new hotel I thought the aircon was very noisy
- hotel taxis a complete rip-off - make sure you book your own.
- our kids didn't use the kids club but again it was very expensive.

Overall, a very pleasant stay and we would definitely return. However the low room rate is certainly recovered by food, drink and taxi charges etc....

Good but not perfect.

Amazing hotel. Probably the best I have ever stayed in with faultless service. The rooms are luxurious, the food excellent, the pools perfect and the staff unobtrusive, but ever helpful and committed to making your stay perfect. We'll be back!

I stayed at the Conrad Algarve for 2 nights (1st to 3rd of November, room 632). The hotel was recently awarded the World Travel Awards trophy for Europe's leading luxury hotel. My expectations were, thus, as high as the hotel credentials seemed to justify.
Of course, a review is always subjective: what's good for a person may fall short for others, people in different rooms or staying at the hotel at different seasons may have opposite impressions. However, for me, for my particular experience, this hotel as left me speechless.
I usually list things I liked and things I think could be improved. I'll try to do the same now:
Things I liked:
- EVERYTHING! I think it all can be summed up in one word: Excellence. From the modern, sophisticated decor, yet with a relaxed atmosphere, to the hotel grounds and mostly the excellent service at all levels (reception, restaurants, spa, even maintenance), everything here seems to have been thought to make one leave the stress and worries outside the hotel gates and just enjoy. Some tips:
- Gustus Restaurant is an amazing place. Use it thoroughly!;
- the bar at Gustus offers mind blowing cocktails, designed and prepared by bartender Wilson. Miss it and be sorry!
- reception staff are superb;
- breakfast is a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Staff, again, is superb!
- one word for the spa: WOW!
- etc., etc.
Things I thought could be improved:
- Can you turn the hotel around so that most rooms face South? Just kidding, of course...

I'm not surprised about the awards this place has got. The standard is still uncommon in Portugal, but I do hope this works as a trend setter.
Could this be the perfect hotel? Maybe not, because I haven't been to all hotels in the World, but I bet it is really, really close to perfection. It sure was perfect for me!

This is the second time we stayed here. Even though it is low season, all hotel staff do everything possible to make your stay special! My only and I mean only critique is that even in low season, it was impossible to get a spa booking! We'll be back again. Fab hotel!!

Dear Guest,
I am absolutely delighted to read that you had another very special experience of the Conrad Algarve, second time around and that you really enjoyed the services provided by our team members. Rest assured that I have forwarded your comments to the Hotel Team.
With regards to the impossibility of booking the Spa, it is indeed rather popular and, I would thoroughly recommend that when booking your next stay at the Conrad Algarve that you request a Spa reservation at the same time in order to guarantee availability.
Once again thank you so much for sharing a review of our Hotel with the Tripadvisor Community. We really look forward to have the pleasure of welcoming you back at our Resort soon.
Kind regards.

Though a very new hotel, the décor, quality of rooms & service are nothing short of exemplary !! The pool & facilities are better than anything in the area & I've been staying down there for the last 20 years so I should know !! Both restaurants are fitting of this 5 star resort & altogether highly recommended !!
