Had a good week in Vila Petra. As said by previous reviewers, hotel spotless. Staff very good, particularly the 2 ladies who looked after our rooms on the 1st floor, also David in bar, lovely cocktails! Only slight downside was 2 days of drilling with renovations being undertaken in hotel. They started at 8.30am so no sleep from then on...

We spent the first three weeks of November at the Vila Petra, something we had done last year as well. Once again, the experience was made memorable by the wonderful staff - most of whom remembered us from last visit; the attention paid to cleanliness; and the available amenities that enhanced our time there. The facility is quietly being upgraded,...

We stayed in November 2016. All staff at the hotel have been welcoming, friendly and helpful. The one bed apartment we stayed in is just as photos on website. It is very clean and well maintained as is all areas of this hotel. We stayed half board and had a wide choice of food at breakfast, hot food, breads, cheese,...

We recently travelled to Portugal for a family wedding. We stayed in Vila Petra and were very pleased with its location and amenities. There was an issue of the indoor pool being closed one day due to vermin infestation which was concerning as we'd had the six month old in the pool the previous day, but this could happen anywhere....

I did plenty of research before I booked this and I found the reviews here very accurate so there's no point in me repeating what everyone else has said so I'll try mention other bits The shop on the grounds IS very basic but handy, it's not as expensive as some have made out. The staff in the bar/snack bar/reception/cleaners...

Stayed here 1st week in November. The hotel was quiet which suited us as our son is autistic. Can't fault the place, staff courteous, apartment spotless. We asked for a quiet room and we certainly got one, no disturbance at night. The indoor pool was a great addition to our stay as the outdoor pool was fairly cool this time...

Just returned from a week at the Vila Petra, and will definately be back. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the a la carte menu was superb. Our stay was at the beginning of November, so obviously the hotel was fairly quiet, which suited us. Although some bars and restaurants on the strip...
