“Ampalius and golf”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We (four) stayed here for a week from 1st July as a base for playing golf around Vilamoura. I have stayed here before, and again found the hotel to be well worth its 4stars. Our bedrooms were at the rear, and were very comfortable, with good balcony views. Linen, a daily clean and towel changes, and variety of good food makes this a hotel I can recommend. The pool and position by the beach, closeness to the Marina will suit most, especially families. During our week we also had two outside buffets, which were excellent.
For the golfers, transfers to the courses is a piece of cake. Staff at reception were excellent, and other staff were also friendly and helpful. I am currently in the process of booking for the same week's golf next year.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear suited us perfectly.

Hotel is lovely, staff only OK, not very helpful a lot of the time. The pool area is not very child friendly, no ramp down into the little pool so feared my 14month old would just topple in to the ice cold water brrrr brrrr brrrr. We had a gorgeous view of the sea and only once heard puro night club and the baby slept soundly every night, to be honest the in hotel entertainment was far more intrusive!! The 'junior suite' was more of a studio apartment, not exactly celubrious but nice all the same. Perfect distance from hustle and bustle for a night sleep!! We had an excellent holiday here and would return but for a small child poolside was not an option, beach it had to be and I will be requesting better air con, lost a few pounds in sweat

Room Tip: After June club season opens so do not choose front sea view over looking puro!!

We stayed here the first week i in August and had fantastic sea views on the first 2 nights but unfortunately the noise from puro beach was unbearable and we asked to be moved to the other side of the hotel. The manager was very obliging and friendly and promptly arranged another room for us. All staff were very friendly and helpful, the food is lovely and the position and pool are great. All in all a lovely place to stay if only they could do something
about the puro beach sound levels and the night club at the tivoli.

This hotel is the worst place i have ever been. First of all it is not a 4 star hotel the rooms are 2 stars at best and every night there is a nightclub 100 meters from the hotel that plays music till the late hours of the morning as loud as possible. If you enjoy sleeping dont come here !!

Paid extra for a sea view which is nice but every morning between 06:00-07:00 am we were woken by drunken louts leaving the night club across the street and on that basis I would not return to this hotel, don't get me wrong I enjoy a good time like most people but after spending all week listening to singing, fighting, shouting it can get a little too much, on the plus side the hotel is nice, breakfast was lovely, pool area is also lovely, a few of the staff are nice but the some of them are very rude (reception) and don't want to to know you unless you are from Portugal, rooms are cleaned daily and to a good standard, so in summary good location, nice hotel but the noice levels in the early hours would put me off going back to this hotel.

Recently stayed here in a junior suite. Great hotel in terms of location so close to resort centre.

Breakfast was great couldn't get enough of the freshly made pancakes with various toppings.

Clean rooms, cleaners are great just spotless.

Pool area was nice and always got a bed. Only inequality day was bad when a gang of loud mouth hens descended for weekend.

One gripe one of the spa staff was rude when I enquired about using inform pool and treatments.

Finally the nightclub across the road is noisy so sleeping with patio door ajar isn't possible.

Room Tip: Avoid room overlooking nightclub
