Reviewed 4 August 2013

We stayed at the Dom Pedro for a week and found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was basic but very clean, with a sea view which was great! We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis but ate in the hotel's restaurant on a couple of occasions and thought that the food was better than some of the restaurants in the marina. The location of the hotel is very good, being close to all amenities. The only downside would be that there are not enough sunbeds or parasols for the number of guests staying in the hotel, I would think that this is something which could (and should) be easily rectified.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view on one of the higher floors.

Have just spent a lovely ten night stay at the Dom Pedro Marina. The hotel is in a good location close to the beach and marina and although close to the road no disturbance from local traffic. A short walk to neighbouring Quateira. Like other travellers was disturbed early mornings by revellers from nearby night club. The staff were friendly and helpful and rooms spotless with towels changed daily. Food was more than adequate with a good choice for breakfast and dinner. Despite certain guests trying to discredit the food by loudly videoing the dining room,which only served to make staff and guests feel uncomfortable and make themselves look silly. Overall a great holiday thank you Dom Pedro Marina.

dom pedro marina hotel is in an excellent location both close to the beach and the marina. We were bed and breakfast with the breakfast buffet providing an excellent selection. The rooms were cleaned everyday, beds made and towels replaced. One negative would be that during peak times there was not enough sun loungers - we actually had our sun loungers taken by other hotel guests even thought we had placed towels on them. The hotel provides guests with towels for use at the pool/ beach which was very handy. All staff were very helpful and pleasant. Overall we had a great experience staying in the dom pedro marina hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend on a girl's weekend away. On the positives, the location is great, rooms were very clean, there was a good choice at breakfast, and there is a nice reception area. On the negatives, the rooms were fairly basic with with little or no frills, check-in took ages and not terribly friendly, never enough beds by the pool unless you get down with your towels by 8am the reserve beds (should NOT be allowed!!!), pool service slow as only one waiter on who was doing his best. Also our room stank of cigar smoke - on the curtains and bedding and despite leaving the window open for the 4 days, it was fairly unpleasant.
If you just want a base just to sleep and shower, then this hotel is fine. If you want a bit more luxury then try somewhere else.

As other reviewers have said it does now need updating but it is still a great place to stay and the location for the Marina and elsewhere is excellent.

There is nothing about the Hotel that I could honestly say that I did not like and am looking forward to having another stay there soon.

I was encouraged at first by some reviews that said the Dom Pedro Marina was fantastic. It's not! I don't won't to be unkind but this is a mediocre hotel in need of updating. The best thing about this hotel is its staff; they are absolutely wonderful, pleasant and helpful.
We booked a Junior Suite and were disappointed with what it had to offer; a tiny balcony that just had room for a small round table and two chairs, not much more. No coffee making facilities in the room; come on Dom Pedro, how much would that have cost you considering we paid something like 400GBP extra for the room? I also missed a shaving mirror. Ancient TV's (Plasma hasn't got there yet) The beds have very firm mattresses; if you like that, then OK.
We booked Bed and Breakfast only and the Breakfast was also disappointing. The bacon was like strips of leather, the fried eggs (when they were there) were dried up. You only get fried eggs every other day, apparently! After three days of this we went down to the Marina each morning for breakfast. 5 euros for a classic, well cooked English Breakfast, brilliant.
The Wi-Fi is in serious need of updating. If you want it in your room it could cost just over 100GBP per week for a family of four, each having their Smart Phones. You get a code for 3 days (13 Euro) which your device will not remember once you disconnect, so you have to keep typing it in. Far better to pop down the Marina and get totally FREE Wi-Fi in the bars and restaurants.
We had a Mini-Bar which was very over priced. Pop over to the Supermarket next door and stock up there.
When I said that you won't sleep for the excitement, I mean it. Right opposite is the Purobeach Lakeside Restaurant and Night Club. Disco Dancing, Cabaret Entertainment, etc until the early hours. You may as well go there because you won't sleep while the music is playing and hundreds of teenagers are screaming and shouting when coming out at all hours of the morning, motor cycles racing up and down the roads at frighteningly high speeds, right through until 7:00am. The worst night was our last night there, and we were told by hotel staff that this disturbance would go on now, every night, until September!
Of course, the beauty of this is that you can pop down the poolside and reserve your sunbeds at 6:30am, as we saw some couples doing. (And they were English!) Needless to say, if you haven't plonked your towels on prime position sunbeds by 7:00am, you'll have missed out.
We will most definitely be visiting Vilamoura again but sorry to say that we shall not be returning to Dom Pedro Marina, or Dom Pedro Portebellow, Dom Pedro Golf, Vila Gale Ampalius, or the Tivoli Marina, all of which overlook the Purobeach Night Club and receive the nightly noise with both barrels.
Such a shame.
