As the title states, I had mixed feelings about this hotel. I would have preferred to stay in some smaller boutique hotels, but we were attracted to this one for the beach access and views. The view of the private beach did not disappoint -...More

I visited Vilalara Thalasso resort the second time. Everything fullfilled my expectations. The staff is very friendly, the spa excellent, the breakfast board extraordinary, the rooms well designed. The location just at the private beach is comfortable. I recommended this wonderfull place to everyone.

I didn't know what's customary in Portugal so we used the general UK rule: 5-10% depending on service. Usually I try to use cash direct to the individual rather than adding to a bill when paying with a card.
