Very good hotel, beautifull location, nice staff, great view from balcony. We had a very nice relaxing holiday. On our last day we could even get a room to freshen up, even though we allready checked out.

Room Tip: room 706 has a great view!

Just in couple of sentences, hotel is superb, stuff is very nice, view from the window one of the best ever, breakfest is good, location-just great. Suggest to all who want to travel to Algarve, if you stay in Pestana viking, it will not be a dissapointment. (im not talking about USA travelers, who are complaining about everything) :)

Room Tip: Room 101 with garden view! (its not just a garden, its with ocean view, and swiming pools ae just 10...

Stayed here for a week with three friends on our annual golf break we were very pleased with the hotel .
Great location very clean and good facilities felt a little rushed at breakfast time with staff snatching your plate before you had put your knife and fork down! Plus the buddy holly looking character was a little strange.
Bar staff good and reception staff very helpful.
Would stay again

We had a lovely week here, our apartment was lovely, the domestic staff worked very hard and the standard of cleanliness was very high. We had a lovely terrace and secure shared garden with the apartment, which was great for sunbathing in peace. We hired a car, which I would recommend, just to explore the surrounding area a bit more. There was a really good supermarket locally, and some nice restaurants- especially Belmondo. The pool area was nicely kept and the local beaches were great.
The reception staff were fair to middling, depending on who was on duty. We were disappointed not have wifi in our room, and the hotel information book was not very explanatory. Our room was on the ground floor, and unfortunately we had a lot of noise from upstairs.
We would definitely go back, but would ask for an apartment which has wifi signal and probably on the first floor.

Room Tip: Ask for 1st floor apartment and ask for a room with wifi

Loved this hotel, loved the pool area - really nothing bad to say about it. Room was great and the balcony has lovely views. I would definitely go back again, and would be happy to look at any of the other hotels in the group.

Fantastic hotel!! From first appearance from the road it looks nothing special. But once in the door it was modern and chic!! Staff were very pleasant and helpful.
We got a special offer for bed and breakfast in a sea view suite which was lovely. We stayed in room 718 and were amazed with the view, very beautiful.
Family is suited for couples and families
Really enjoyed our stay here, and made a pact we would return here one day with a family of our own.

Room 718 has the perfect view of the Atlantic, seems to be the one from where the promo pics are taken form and is the middle of the seaview rooms.

Poolside bar and many loungers out on the grass and round the pool makes lazing round in the daytime perfect. We didnt try the nearby beach Senhora De Rocha or the tiny Cova Redonda during the day.

At night you can hear outdoor concerts from your balcony from outside Lords Bar at Senhor De Rocha. You can go along here from the hotel 10 min walk. Turn left down the hill from the hotel and follow the road.

The nearest town is Armacao De Pera, a 5 euro taxi ride away. Not an impressive town but you can stroll along the pedestrianised old town just behind the beach and it feels nice.

There's an Indian (New Delhi) and an Italian (Vila Italia) within walking distance of the hotel and both decent.

For further choices head into Armacao for the night.

We came as a family for my son's wedding. The rooms were good except for the one we had that faced onto the roof of the hotel. Other visitors could just walk across to your balcony.
They moved my other son and his family into a larger room with no quibbles.
The pool area was good but the inside pools walking area was very slippery once wet, and children were falling on it, aswell as some adults.
The hotel is in a lovely area, close to beaches and a beautiful limestone coast. I really enjoyed my stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden/sea room up high.
