Just a couple of minor moans; the...

Very good hotel. Fantastic location, with the beach on one side and the lovely marina on the other. We asked for a room that got the afternoon sun and was not disappointed, everyday was lovely, sat on the balcony on our return. Rooms are very big, with good stocked bathrooms. Staff are helpful and polite, nothing is too much trouble.

I wish..I wish..I was here on pleasure. I got a sea view room and man was it worth it. Sitting on my balcony sipping on a glass of wine as the sun beemed down 😎. Amazing location... 25 foot from the beach which is soft sand and had two cocktail bars on it. 300 meters from the centre of town....

The best thing about this hotel is it's location next to Vilamoura beach and a 5 minute walk to Vilamoura marina, restaurants and bars. The hotel has a good reception area, bar, spa, inside and outside swimming pools. The hotel has different category of rooms. The standard rooms are small and need upgrading but the superior rooms are spacious. The...
