What an amazing holiday, great hotel, great food, such friendly and hardworking staff, couldn't fault it at all, will definitely be going back to this hotel..Augusto in particular was such a welcoming member of staff.. Vilamoura is a must visit, beautiful place (only 17 euro in a taxi from the hotel).

We went for a fortnight to riu Gaurana, we've been to riu hotels a few times so knew it would be good. Our room was clean and comfortable with a sea view as we'd emailed beforehand and requested one. The staff were all faultless and couldn't be more helpful. The management were everywhere, I'm sure they hardly go home! The...

Only stayed at this hotel for 4 night so was prefect for what we wanted, however would not want to stay for any longer as the Location was to quiet for us. Rooms spacious but a little dated but were cleaned to a high standard. Nice swimming pools and grounds but personally found the pools just that little bit to...

Very relaxed atmosphere, two nice pools, very kind staff, nice room and good all inclusive. Free parking facility. Very good location in a quiet place, about 15 minutes walking from Olhos de Água (tradicional fishermen village). The best beach near the hotel is Praia da Falésia that can be reached in about 15 minutes through a wooden staircase.

The hotel is very tired.. Much need refurb apparently happening over winter. Food was repetitive, but pretty much what you would expect. My daughter and I ate out most of the time. Wine selection - red, white or rose from a pump. Staff very nice and helpful.

First class hotel. Delicious food. Excellent, kind service from the staff. Clean and beautiful, modern bedroom facing the sea, worth the extra money. Nice to have a balcony too. The entertainment was good, the entertainment staff worked very hard. Altogether a fantastic holiday and we're returning next year!

This was our third visit to this hotel, and hopefully won't be our last! We visited in August, so the weather was great. We like it hot! The reasons for our return visits are the amazing staff, the delicious and varied food and the cleanliness of the hotel and facilities. As other reviewers have mentioned, the staff really do go...

Stayed for a week in late October. Weather was still pretty good and the hotel was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food and drink was plentiful and of a high standard.
