Hotel Praia Sol
Ranked #29 of 48 Hotels in Quarteira
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for a week in Nov 2012. I had a twin room for single occupancy which for the price paid was of much higher standard than you would normally expect. Nice bathroom with plenty of space and a balcony. The corridors are wide and give the hotel an airy feel.

Bar is great and staff are friendly, it's open 24 hours and the prices are very reasonable. The ground floor area is open plan with bar, dining room and reception in the same area. The pool area and garden were quite nice but didn't spend too much time out there due to the weather.

As many have said the hotel is in between Vilamoura and Quarteira, so out the front door turn left to Q and out the back gate turn left to V. I found it a great location as the 2 resorts are very different so had a choice more local and down to earth from the front or touristy out the back.

The only down side for me was breakfast, I don't expect much for the price paid but the scrambled eggs are awful. Just feel that real scrambled eggs would make a complete difference to the experience but not a great issue overall.

Without doubt would stay here again.

Friendly hotel with great staff they are always helpful. Nice little pool and sit out area. Location is within easy walking distance of Quarteira and Villamouri. Just order the coffee from the bar not the breakfast machine.

Stayed here last week in march, great hotel !! Only 40 rooms, very clean hotel, nice breakfast, plus you have the option to have evening meal 3 coarse for 10 euro !!!! Lovely pool area, and only 10 min walk to vilamoura harbour, plenty to do in the area. Great chill out for time of year, the staff are great and very pleasant esp Antonio who looked after everyone !! Great bloke, only downfall is the back gate there should be some kind of key system for people staying there, and not having to wait for someone to open it for you. All in all great place !!! Great break would go back

Just returned from our annual golf trip with 3 friends. We last stayed here when hotel had just opened and it is still excellent. Staff very hard working yet very pleasant and nothing too much bother for them. Shuttle service to and from golf courses provided and this was much appreciated. Bar area very pleasant and even entertainment on a couple of evenings. We would certainly return here.

Have just returned from a 3 week stay here and found it to be a genuine 3 star hotel with 5 star hospitality and friendliness. It is small enough for staff and guests to be on first name terms.
The small staff are extremely friendly and very hard working. The bar prices are reasonable (cheaper than many bars in the resorts). Antonio shakes a good cocktail ("The Praia Sol" is highly recommended !). Many thanks to Anna, Isobel & Iliana(with the permanent smile!). Must also mention Maria who produced superb meals.
Will certainly go again.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the front if you want sun on the balcony all day

We stayed here at the beginning of March. Accomodation is very good value, clean, uncluttered entrance which is carried on throughout the rest of the hotel.Rooms were cleaned daily and beds comfy. Staff were very friendly. We went half board,not much available on menu for vegetarians but the Chef will cater for if you ask which was much appreciated. This hotel is a great base to get around from with plenty of free parking spaces.
Bar area has free wi fi and a couple of tv's, a great social area to meet other guests if you wish. Pool looked lovely but even though weather was sunny not warm enough for a dip in March! We only stayed four nights on this occasion, would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view/ balcony room.
