Just returned from 9 days b&b at the hotel, beautiful modern and clean hotel, breakfast served 7.30 til 10.30 which was nice, hotel location is 5mins bus/ taxi ride from quarteira but don't bother going its a dump, head straight for vilamoura much nicer, lovely shops and restaurants. 10€ each way to quarteira, fantastic restaurant just over road from hotel and very good prices. Car hire is a must for this hotel as taxis expensive and buses limited, car hire isn't cheap either we hired a fiat punto for 5days at 400€. Free waterpark for duration of our stay just over the road which is fab for the kids. Would highly recommend this hotel but also the car hire too. A visit to alvor beach is a must if u have a car it's about hour journey down the 125 road but well worth it the beach is fantastic and alvor is beautiful.

Room Tip: Car hire is a must

the staff were very friendly and helpful especially all the receptionist's. the hotel alaways was very clean and looked modern. the lifts was amazing. the hotel room looked gorgeous and was very spacious and imaculate.
the water park entry was unlimeted and free!!! we were given a special wrist band wiched ment we could beat the long entrance que.
the hotel activities were grat we never got bored. the pools were faboulous. in addition the resturant was great. it was nice to try different food.
However the only downfall was the location right next to it was a big main rode wich was trick to cross especially with children. there was not many places to go for a walk. we tried but to our horror we were chased by a pack of wild dogs. 10-15 minutes drive into the main towns Quateria and Vilamora.luckily the hotel had a free shuttle bus to take us to each one wich was handy.

Well overall it is very good . Here is one of my reasons at the snack bar it takes 5-10 mins to get served and they are not always polite in your room it is Cleaned exceptionally well i would have loved a waterpark view because it was awesome . i am 10 ,we went with 4 mums and and 4 children my friends . the waterparks is entertaining because we had wristbands it was great we could skip the queue to get to the waterpark before the visitors the rides and slides are great fun there is lots to do . we did Bed and breakfast because we read before we went that the food is not up to standards , there are some really great restaurants right near the hotel , we went to the marine twice it is great lots of boats to see nice shops and places to eat there are lot of people who are not your language the cocktails are a bit overpriced but the pool is cleaned everyday the kid club staff are very fun lucky there is wifi int the lobby some of the food is nice there is a games room where me and my friends played in your room there is a big tv which has lots of English channels Sam aged 10

We have just come back from 7 days at the hotel.First impression of hotel was wow.
When entering hotel it was lovely and clean rooms were the same. The staff very friendly at receptions and kids club was great for the kids.

Bad points very expensive for drinks 2.80 euro for a can of Pepsi !!!! So we stocked up at the supermarket in town and kept in fridge in room also water . The food was the worst I have tasted breakfast was cold and not good so glad we only B&B after a few days was dreading going to breakfast. Also it is out of the way and can be expensive to get to the town but they put a free bus on in the morning to the towns and local busses back not expensive . There is an amazing little restaurant 2 minute walk right of the hotel on the left where we ate each night as food was AMAZING def worth money there. All in all we had a fabulous holiday and would def go back but the food needs seriously looked at and the prices of drinks

Just come back from a wonderful 10 days at the Aquashow Park Hotel. I'm rating it a very solid 4 out of 5 - my family and I loved it and would certainly return. There are a few areas that could be improved though, which prevent it getting the full 5 out of 5 from me.

Firstly the good - the hotel is new, clean and perfectly located for the Aquapark next door, which is free if you are a guest at the hotel. A real bonus, as it would be very pricey for daily entry. Rooms are very new & have everything you'd need for a perfect holiday. Wifi is free in public Reas, but only wired Internet is free in the rooms. Easily fixed with a travel router though... #geek. Staff are generally excellent, especially Caludia & Celia on reception. The pool area is also very good, and usually has just enough beds for the guests. Food in the poolside bar is standard enough fare, and tasty, if a little pricey. But delivered by friendly staff, which means a lot.

As the hotel is a little way from the centre of Quarteira, hiring a car would be important, particularly if you are planning to explore a little. Taxi costs can mount-up and shuttle buses are fairly limited in their schedules. The hotel is very handy for Faro airport though - just 20 mins away or so, and also close to the N125 road that runs horizontally across the South of Portugal and gets you easily around the Algarve and beyond.

Now the not so great bits, some of which can be difficult for the hotel to control.... The breakfast buffet is ok at best - food is pretty average quality. And when sitting outside to enjoy the early-morning sun at breakfast-time, there's no smoking section, which means that non-smokers are often subjected to the noxious fumes from neighbouring table(s) while trying to eat...... Kids also seem to be allowed to use the corridors as play zones until the early hours of the morning and again from 730am, without any management intervention. A nightmare for anyone trying to sleep more than 6 hours a night.

However if these issues could be resolved, I'm sure it would make the hotel an essential Algarve destination for families everywhere... It wouldn't stop me from returning, but I'd like to see improvements in these areas too.

The hotel is nice for families, quiet holiday and even quick relaxing weekend.
Lovely indoor pool, nice couple bars, inside the hotel and one next to outdoor pool.
Friendly staff, very clean.
The only think you could find in minus is location. There are very few restaurants not far from hotel.
You can book free bus from from hotel and back to see the port or the town.
Free/unlimited water/themepark - amazing!
Highly recommended.
Enjoy!

Just back from a 7 day stay at the aqua show park hotel , and I was very impressed at the standard of service that greeted us. From the moment we arrived we were made feel welcome and valued. Myself, my wife and 10 year old daughter had the best time and had no reservations about asking the staff about any trips or information that we needed, we would have gladly spent all our time between the hotel and the aqua park . I found all the bar staff to be especially friendly .Will return next year. I enjoyed my stay so much I presented the bar manager with a gift of a personal wine opener as a gift before I left.
