“Great Hotel altogether”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Had to book hotel as our villa was having building work done and it was not completed. Wanted to stay in the area and got a deal through a booking site, in fact 70 GBP per night which included breakfast. Not being a fan of buffet style food, was more than pleasantly surprised by their wonderful choice at breakfast which included fresh omelettes made to one's choice. Lovely really. We stayed, instead of one night, three. The bedroom had side view of the ocean and was nice to hear the waves in the morning. Great facilities of iron board, iron, tea and coffee tray on request. I think this hotel used to be called The Atlantico but obviously has had a big refurb done. Front of house staff were courteous and professional and the wifi was free in the bedrooom. There is also a business centre in the lobby with computers and again free wifi. Would most certainly recommend this hotel for anyone in the area of Quarteria/Vilamoura............lots of restaurant choices within walking distance and would highly recommend the chinese restaurant down at the marina, the one nearest the Tivoli hotel, there are two!

I have been to various hotels in villamoura for the last 10 years and have walked past this one on numerous occasions. What a result I had when looking for a short stay 3 night break i came across this one in a deal. Everything was very clean staff very friendly and helpful and it made for a fantastic break. Even the weather which was in the 70's everyday was kind to us so we could go for walk's and have lunch in various locations. Around the Marina quite a few resturants were getting ready to close with a few open for their last weekend of the season, but still enough to give you a good choice of food.
We had a room on the side of the hotel and could watch the sun come up every morning from the balcony, The rooms were spotless and beds very comfy. Breakfast was a buffet with so much selection. (Fella's be warned you can have a Bucks fizz with your breakfast, so if your wife/Partner is like mine and likes a glass of champer's be warned as after breakfast I couldn't get a word in as my wifes mouth was doing about 1000 words a minute.)

In Brief
A Fantastic Hotel in a fantastic location run by fantastic staff.

I will be back!!

We stayed in this beautful hotel for 3 nights in Early December and found the whole experience to be excellent. We generally visit Vilamoura every September for our main holiday as the location and restaurants are first class. We have always wanted to stay in the Crowne Plaza and got a fantastic deal for December. We got upgraded to a Jur Suite which was lovely in every way and as part of our deal a bottle of s/wine and a fresh fruit pladder arrived within 10 minutes of checking into our room. The accommodation is of a 5 star standard and the staff are friendly and welcoming which really made our stay.

I must say both the standard of accommodation and staff are leagues above the Tivoli Marina (which I love and stay every Sept). The resort was extremely quiet compared to the month of Sept, but at the same time there was enough to do. I will hopefully return to the Crowne Plaza next December.

Merry Christmas to all the staff and management at this great hotel.

Room Tip: The Jnr suite is a must.

My husband and I returned yesterday from Vilamoura where we stayed in the Crowne Plaza for a four night break. We had a superior room with a side sea view and it was beautiful. The hotel is spotless and the staff are very friendly and professional. The breakfast was lovely, all fresh and plentiful. Like everywhere in the Algarve at this time of year it is exceptionally quiet so we wouldn't choose to go back at this time of year but we certainly wouldn't hesitate to go back to this hotel.

Everyone's favourite hotel it seems At the moment , I can see why . Fab rooms , fab location , fab pool area. easy to get everywhere ,we love it .
Since it opened we have been 5 times , flying in the morning , we pick up a transfer in the airport , book it 2 days before with yellowwfishtransfers .They meet us and it's only 20 minutes drive , we are around the pool by lunchtime, recommended.
Walking to the marina is 5 minutes and in to Quarteira approx 10 . It's very flat area..
Plenty of great eating places for traditional or more variation , Chinese ,Indian etc if you ,like.
One down side is after looking at the new prices they have shot up this time , by a lot we may have to view another option , come on Crown Plaza don't out price yourself it's a great hotel but we are open to trying others if the price is right ...

Stayed here for a short break in early november and was pleased that even after the main holiday season was over every part of this hotel was very clean.the room was very modern with everything you needed in it.the bathroom was very modern and towels and toiletries replaced every day.A in room safe and tea and coffee making facilities were very welcome and from the balcony we had a good view looking towards the marina and sea.The hotel was not very busy so we were able to eat in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner without it being too busy.the hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful .In the restaurant special mention must go to Kevin the manager and Islanda for looking after us so well.the meals were buffet style but plenty of choice of food for all tastes.Would return again but only in the off season as it was nice and quiet.
