Adriana Beach Club Hotel Resort
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Olhos de Agua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2013

We stayed at the Adriana Beach Club for 5 nights (Tuesday to Saturday).
We flew into Faro airport and rented a car. From there it's a 30-40 minute drive. If you don't have a Sat-Nav and you are driving make sure you plan your route carefully as the Adriana Beach Club is at the end of a road that is not that obviously sign-posted and it's very easy to get lost - even after driving up and down the road quite a number of times. The Portuguese seem to love to have a road sign pointing down a road then after a few hundred yards you come to a junction with five roads leading off and no other sign for where you want to go.
We arrived at 9pm and check-in staff were friendly and spoke good English. The restaurant closes at 9.30pm so they sent is straight off to eat then we finished check-in formalities later and were shown to our room.
The complex consists of a main building where the pool, restaurant and entertainment is with several accommodation buildings scattered throughout the grounds. There are three standards of accommodation - Basic, Standard and Superior. We chose Standard and were about a three minute walk from the main building. No cars are allowed past the initial area - the resort is car free so a porter took us and our luggage on a golf buggy to our room (which we thought was a nice touch) and showed us how things worked.
This was our first holiday in Portugal so I have nothing to compare standards on. The room wasn't luxurious or opulent but functional and very clean. We had a bath and two balconies (one looked east - the other west). Our double bed, as in common with every other European country we have been to was two single beds pushed together. We had a faint Wi-Fi signal in the room but I was never able to successfully connect and we had to go to the main building in order to use the free Wi-Fi. Some things in the room could be improved – such as the sliding wardrobe doors which I am sure sounds wonderfully noisy to the people who are staying around / above / below you and also the tiles around the shower / bath could do with regrouting. There’s a hair dryer in the bathroom too. The pillow(s) were thin and too small.
Breakfast was available from 8am to 10am with lunch from 12.30pm to 2.30pm and evening meal from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. In between these hours you can have “snacks” which when we were there consisted of help-your-self- beef burgers, hot-dogs, chicken nuggets, potato fritters, ham, cheese, crisps and breads rolls. The food available at meal times was extensive. There was always a choice of salad, meats (hot & cold) and fish. At breakfast there were such things as Baked Beans, Eggs, Bacon, Hash Browns, Sausages and the usual continental foods (croissants etc.). There were always lots of available seats and you could sit where you wanted – outside or inside. One night whilst we were there they had a Mexican night with the waiters dressed as Mexicans with almost all the food being Mexican too.
The hotel has three food serving areas and two pools but only one of each was in use when we stayed. The others open peak season. We used the pool area a couple of times. There’s the usual (annoying) habit of people reserving loungers with towels and often you had to have a lounger with no umbrella for shade.
We walked to the beach. There are 96 steps to go down to the beach (and obviously the same amount to come back up). It’s a public beach and no loungers are available.
There are a handful of tennis courts which we used once. There was a four Euro charge for 1 hour plus a 20 Euro deposit (which you got back if you took the rackets and balls back on time). The tennis court area is floodlit but we never saw the lights on and tennis is only available 9am-5pm – the hottest part of the day.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the Adriana Beach Club. The layout has a feeling of space and not crammed in like a traditional hotel. The grounds and plants make you feel like you are somewhere exotic.

Booked a week here! When they say "all inclusive"..that's exactly what they mean! At the reception, we were greated with a glass of champagne!! The we were taken by golf cart to out room, The complex is quite huge! Being April the whole complex was not being used.; The village is set up with 6 rooms per building. We were in N building.. The complex has buildings from A-Z!! The HUGE pool was a bit cold for swimming yet, but could sun ourselves around uit, OR take advantage of the big indoor pool, jucuzzi and sauna! The main restaurant where we got three meals a day, is set up cafeteria/buffet style, and the meals have EVERYTHING! Portugese dishes as well as standard favoities..; something for all tasts! Dinks are free too..; even some liquor drinks!
The beach is only a 5 minute walk from the complex, and a sturdy well build staircase (92 steps) gets you down to the water from the cliff face..; where you can walk for miles in either direction!
We will difently go back!

Room Tip: Since this is a resort, there is music (sometimes rock; but not all the time) around the pool area...

We stayed here for a week at Easter a few weeks ago - we had a standard room and initially there was a problem with a door just outside our room that had been left unlocked by mistake, the door opened onto a big 10 -15ft hole with gas pipes etc into it. We reported this to our holiday rep immediately as a health and safety issue, the door was fixed and the manager asked to see us personally to apologise, then next thing were moved into the hotel owners private holiday apartment, which was fantastic (especially as it was our honeymoon!)....so to be fair our complaint was dealt with swiftly and they really went over and above and pulled out all the stops to put it right. The hotel itself is fantastic and perfect for families: great location, great food, friendly staff, excellent facilities...there was a kids club as well which was a nice surprise, as it was still out of season (I'd say Thomas Cook have undersold the place in their brochure as there was supposed to be no kids club or heated pool and there was). Negative points? Can't think of any! Overall one of the best holidays I've been on and I will be going back sometime!

Lovely place, thought it might have been busier as Easter holidays but wasn't so only one bar/restaurant/pool open, but all the staff were unfailingly polite, areas including rooms were kept very clean, and the food at lunchtime and the evenings was fantastic.
Only (minor) gripe was breakfast items like eggs and baked beans were sometimes cold, but looked like more was being cooked than required.
Overall a great place, will return in the summer if I can find reasonably priced flights!

Just returned from 4 days trip. Lovely place, very friendly staff. The all-inclusive is amazing and too much on offer to eat and drink - despite trying hard! an hours walk along the beach to Vilamoura or Falaisa. Need to hire a car or go on trips otherwise. However, on our last day we walked to Falaisa then up at the beach bar into Falaisa and down onto main road and caught the public bus back to the hotel. It actually turns around in the hotel entrance. We would have been able to see more of the area if the hotel had informed us of this service . Not everyone wants to go on an organised trips. Just ask at Reception for a timetable to be run off for you as there's not on on the general information desk. Great place, will be back!
The indoor pool area quite small and changing rooms need updating now.

Room Tip: The AA block is across the road into the hotel - a little walk but again could be quieter in the pea...
