While staying in Villamoura we ventured to the restaurant for a late lunch. My food was lovely and good price for what I had. On the food alone I would have given 5 stars, my issue is the dreadful customer service from the blond lady who was the main server. I can honestly say that I have never had such...

Have been coming here for a number of years now and the facilities get better and better. The addition of a second rugby pitch was a master stroke. The owner and all staff are passionate about what they do and are always striving to improve. Food and facilities are both top notch.

If you are someone who loves to keep fit and is into sports, this is the place for you. It's a beautiful resort, with plenty of green and a sports person's haven!!! Amazing!!!

Called in to watch a game. It was really quite with no atmosphere. The drinks are over priced. The WiFi did not work and staff were not very helpful especially when they had no customers to serve. I didn't see anybody coming in for food and they didn't appear to try and do specials to attract customers especially when it's...

This bar mainly supports the health club and any teams in training. Whilst it's not a busy bar this time of year there can still be a lot of noise from the pool table, bored kids and the coffee machine so if you want to watch football without these distractions then best go somewhere else. The bar staff are also...

Least favourite restaurant in a week spent in Vilamoura. Service was EXTREMELY SLOW - despite the fact that they were not overly busy. We waited 35 minutes to have our order taken, 15 minutes later our drinks arrived and eventually our food. Side orders not served at the same time as main courses - one of our party had finished...

Called in with family for a meal. There were 6 of us. We waited for an hour for our food which came out in drips and drabs. Most main courses were finished before the final plate was served. Side orders and sauces came out late and most steaks and fish had already been eaten by this stage!! Drinks were ordered...

As a reasonably fit guy with young family I thought this place would provide us with most of our requirements for distraction. I paid for a week access as we have a villa nearby. I was told we would have access to everything. Having paid, I was charged for tennis rackets, balls, pay extra for astro turf pitch. Not allowed...

We stayed directly across the road from the leisure club in a villa so we used Browns to break up the holiday and pop for drinks, lunch and dinners and ice creams for the children. The food was good. But the service was so so slow!! Even when the place wasn't busy it could take up to 20 minutes waiting...
