I have been to Vilamoura several times and this hotel is the best that I have found there. The rooms are comfortable and a good size, room 841 was in a beautiful position with a large sunny balcony and fantastic view of the Atlantic and the beach. Quite central for the marina and a few steps away from the beach....

First time in Portugal and absolutely loved, loved, loved! Spent a few days in Vilamoura and the location was perfect for first-time visitors. Perfectly situated near the marina with all its shops, bars, restaurants. So convenient with lots to do, and right on the beach! Apparently, (who knew?) this area is super popular with golfers, as the lobby of our...

Lovely place-couldn't fault the views. Hotel was ok and breakfast varied. Beware of travelling during the college/school breaks in Portugal-hotel is close to nightclubs which means there is noise and racing cars from the youth from 11pm to 8 am. My sister, who travelled during low season had a lovely time.
