Great location and hotel for a golf break. Wouldn't recommend for families or couples. Once you have been around the marina not much else to see. Hotel breakfast is excellent, rooms fine and staff friendly.

Perfect Location, only two minutes from the marina, but away from the hustle and bustle. Very friendly staff and the hotel had good all round facilities. Nice bar area and restaurant, and a good breakfast with excellent omelettes..

Friendly, with very helpful staff and good service. Food was excellent, rooms and public areas clean. Easy reach of Marina and beach. Very popular with golfers but they do not spend too much time in the hotel. The view from our room was stunning, looking over the Marina.

The hotel is perfect for the marina in vilamoura. Close to all the golf courses. Only down point the shuttle service to the course was not as good as last year. I do know that this is a service given to the hotel and not run by it.

“There is a small wall in the bedroom that prevents it being too light in the room if you put the bathroom light on at night. I turned out of the bathroom and walked into it banging my nose. Just be aware.”
