“Absolutley fabulous place - great in every respect....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Stayed for 6 nights and now have restored faith in European 5 Star resorts.....
The hotel is superb throughout - modern, clean and fabulous....
Staff are so attentive and the room is really nice - ask for a pool view though....
The only downside is it is a little way out of town but with that comes total peace and tranquility....
Breakfast it truly superb - lots of choice for all....
Highly recomended for sure...
Join the holiday club and the wifi in the room is free too....
An adults only pool is available if you want some total peace - the sunloungers are really comfy and pool service is first class...

Room Tip: You need a pool view or golf view...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and didn't want to come home! We had no complaints at all, everything was perfect.
We especially loved the adult only pool, which was wonderfully relaxing with waiters coming round to take any food/drinks orders. The service was outstanding and staff couldn't do enough for us.
The breakfast buffet was absolutely phenomenal. As soon as we were seated, staff approached us to offer tea/coffee. The food was always fresh with a huge selection including pancakes and wide variety of fresh fruit, and even champagne! As one of us is vegetarian, we were spoilt for choice.
The free shuttle to Vilamoura Marina was 15 mins and we were provided with a timetable. It was perfect and only a 15 minute journey and a lovely touch for the hotel to offer. We had no problems with the times that were offered and it suited us very well.
The Marina was fab with lots of fantastic restaurants and shops as well as a variety of activities to do such as a Dolphin Safari which we went on where we saw 100+ dolphins on a speedboat. Only 35 euros, and well worth it.
Our room was very luxurious (deluxe Queen) with plenty of space, balcony, huge bed, shower and bath. The view from our room was lovely and very relaxing! As a guest at the hotel, we had free access to the spa facilities which is definitely worth going to. Beautiful pool with steam rooms and a terrific view overlooking the golf course.
This was our first holiday as a couple, and was absolutely perfect. We would recommend to couples wanting a luxurious, relaxing getaway as well as families. We will definitely be back, as we couldn't find a single fault! Obrigado Tivoli!

The hotel rooms were superb, the pool areas were excellent. Free use of the spa area allowed escape from children for adults.

The restaurant served excellent food. However, it was expensive and small portions.

The only criticism of the hotel I have is the misrepresentation for 'free'.

For example the tennis court was free, however, there was a significant charge for a racket and ball.

The free driving range, required hire of golf shoes and equipment charging the hour. A round of golf was also very expensive.

The free shuttle bus to the marina was extremely infrequent and the last bus back was around 11pm. (We visited in August 2013)

Well I'm a regular client of the Tivoli Victoria, however since I'm used to travel worldwide I have to say that for a 5 stars Hotel (or 4 right now?), the service is really low and lazy comparing with America, Switzerland or UAE. The service is nothing special, with exception of some motivated young waiters (working only during summer). What save this hotel, is for sure the deco: modern, really creative, touch of wood, golden colors, and marble accompanied with huge elegant mirrors, and the "kind of" infinity pool with golf and lake view. The hotel has 2 restaurants, but we have to consider only 1 for dinner: EMO. The other one is only for breakfasts (or at least I don't remember if they serve on it for other meals). There is 3 others bars & snacks: lobby, chill by pool, and a night club front of the pool, nice for night. During the Summer, the lobby is not well conditioned, so it's too hot inside the hotel. If you are used to have fresh air conditioning, then it will be hard to stay on the lobby during the day. Regarding pools, the hotel has several (the main one which is front of the lobby) and several smaller ones near the accommodations. If it's the best hotel in Vilamoura? Maybe on of the best yes. If it's the best in all the Algarve? Definitely not, not even close! If you are in holidays and want to chill out and golf, I will recommend you a resort instead of an Hotel, however they are a little "far away" of the town (7min or 10min driving), but the Victoria is not inside Vilamoura too, and you have to pick a cab or car to go to the town. By walking you will need 1hour, by car around 10min.

We have just returned from a one week stay here, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The majority of the facilities at the hotel are top notch. The bedrooms are spacious and allow you the option of an open plan room with the bathroom incorpoated as part of the overall room or screened off which ever you prefer, with a seperate WC. We had a pool view room with balcony, complete with double sun lounger.

The buffet breakfast each morning was spectacular and the staff in the dining room were brilliant.

There are two pools to chose from, the main pool which is suitable for families, and the adult only pool, which is perfect if you want to relax in peace and quiet. Poolside snacks and drinks are pretty expensive but the staff here also provide a first rate service.There is a very efficient shuttle service to Vilamoura provided by the hotel which runs at regular intervals. If you're a golf enthusiast there are reduced green fees for residents at the adjoing Victoria Course, which is fantastic.

The only negative aspects are the daily charge in room Wifi, although it's free in the lobby along with the lack of a running machine and air conditioning in the gym, which should be a given in any hotel.

In summary we really enjoyed our stay at this fantastic hotel and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the "Adult Only" Pool come at no extra cost and are lovely.

Stayed there for 4 nights recently and can't complain about anything other than the ridiculous €15 per day charge for wifi (free in the lobby). Bus into town was handy every evening and the pools were fine and food fine also. Nice luxurious rooms, with some english channels on tv, and a well stocked mini bar. The roof top pool is amazing, free use of the pool, sauna, steam room etc and there are sunbeds up there to relax in peace and quiet away from the screaming kids! Again the only complaint I would have is the charge for wifi. As a self employed person i need internet every day but refused to pay €75 for the 5 days we were there. Other 5 star hotels provide complimentary wifi everywhere and I expected the Tivoli to do the same. Even the wifi in the lobby was terrible - lost coverage regularly! Really enjoyed my stay and will probably come back again. A little restricted with being stuck out there as the bus runs at very odd times, got a taxi twice into the marina and was charged €13 by one and €10 by the other. Would recommend you try this hotel for sure though! Happy customer.....

Room Tip: Sun facing rooms in the evening are very handy as you can tan those white bits in private and the lo...
