We only had a couple of days here - but we loved everything about this hotel and if we ever went back over this side of the world would definately stay at this hotel again. The breakfast was lovely and plenty to choose from and the facilities in the hotel were fantastic.

Just spent a week at his hotel with my husband. Really good value for money. booked the hotel room through monarch cost for the whole stay £475 for bed and breakfast. There is an option to stay half board when you get to the hotel for 13 euros a night each. this is really good value - especially when the restaurant is not full as there is no hot buffet service and you can choose 3 courses from the shortened version of the a la carte menu. You can eat outside and it is lovely in the morning and evening to do this.Our room (on the 5th floor) was very clean and the batthroom was spotless and new.Air conditioning very good. Great location the entrance to the marina is across the road at the back of the hotel. We are not golfers but there were some groups of golfers and a group of men on stag nights but in all honesty there was never any noise or disturbance. Great for couples - not so good for children as only entertainment is the pool. Some days there were no sunbeds but if you ask at reception the staff seem to find spare ones.Vilamoura is not cheapt o eat out or drink however we found a lovely little bar just behind the italian and icecream place on the marina called el matador. The prices were very low and they even had happy hour. If you want a relaxing holiday in the sun where you can go out and stroll around the marina at night to eat and drink this is the perfect place.-

I have just returned home from staying at this lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was huge, clean and had brilliant views. There is no smoking allowed in the room but you can smoke on the balcony. The restaurant in the hotel is by the pool and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the food was great too. I wouldn't recommend staying here with children (not a lot for them to do). Overall great value for money in a fab location across from the beach one way and the marina the other.

Just got back from our weeks golf break at Vilamoura. We chose Dom pedro marina because it was cheap to stay there. Now i know why.
1. Our room stunk (not of man farts). I think the drains were backing up and we had a smell of sewage in there most of the time. Being men we didn't bother changing rooms just put up with it.
2. The safe didn't work at all. All they could do was offer us was our money back. We had to use a mates safe.
3.The beer was so dear 4 euro a pint.
4. Buffet breakfast was ok as long as all you wanted was coffee. The hot food wasn't up to much. If you want nice brekkie go opposite to the cafe next to the super market can't remember the name.

Now I don't usually moan so i'll tell you some of the pluses. None to do with the hotel i'm afraid.
We didn't play any bad courses whilst there but Vilamoura old course was truly great as was Vale de Lobo's Ocean course. Give the royal a miss because of the local works, like playing golf across a building site. Pick of the bunch for me was Vila sol. Excellent.

If you are out drinking go to Galaxia between 7 and 9 for two for one drinks, lizzy the barmaid has a lovely set to examine whilst you drink. Out of hotel entrance turn right 200 metres on right. After that go to the second square behind marina and visit The sports bar for a cheap [-] up. Philippe makes great cocktails. Stay clear of the Absinthe tho.Trashed me. If you want to watch the footie get in The 19th hole on the marina. Great atmosphere, good beer and tv's everywhere.

All in all venue was great for golfers but wouldn't take my family there.

we booked this hotel whist we were in vilamoura as the apartments we were staying in were empty.We were given a suite on the third floor.The suite was very clean and and had two bathrooms which were spotless.The staff were very friendly and professional.The buffett breakfast was more than adequate and catered for all tastes,My only complaint was regarding the ignorant people playing golf in their rooms as the noise from the balls running across the tiled floors was beyond a joke.This was not the hotels fault but a notice in reception asking guests to refrain from this activity would not go amiss.Nice clean hotel well worth a visit.

I have just arrived from the hotel and i must say that i expected much more.
The loby and the bar were ok but when i got to my room it was horrible.
It smell like an ashtray, it look very old and ugly and no matter how clean it was it didn´t look like(smell!) clean.
We ask for another room and they give us a suite room(2 bedrooms, 2 wc´s and a siting room)
It was a bit better but it is not worth staying there.
The staff very nice and helpfull
Vilamoura have much better hotels and this one have to have a renovation very soon.
