“ideal for short break”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

spent five nights here with my wife hotel ideally situated for the marina breakfast is good and outside seating are is reasonable size
main bar has good selection of drinks would only say that the outside are is not that large and also when you are sat down the view is no existent as the balustrade is in your eye line
Staff seem to be happy are very helpful
My only gripe was on last night ordered a taxi via front desk to go to restaurant and the one ordered was twice the price of a local taxi they do need to get this sorted
I have no problem paying for a service but when it is twice the local rate that is not on

Luxury hotel. Short transfer from airport which is a plus. Close to Marina with shops/restaurants. On a lake but sea 5 mins walk away. Long sandy beach. Nice spa area. Buffet themed nights good value as they include drink, excellent band playing. We had a panoramic view room, well worth it although I am told the other rooms were good. Only minus was lack of tea and coffee making facilities in room. Low key entertainment provided in day, mainly sports orientated but we were just there for a sun break. Very good place to go if you want to play golf. Hotel was full but no problem with sunbeds. Now a ticket for a towel set up and the pool guys are not there until 9 ish but they would find you a sunbed later on the day if there wasn't one available.

Room Tip: 3rd floor sea view

Wonderful hotel for the relaxing vacation. Very kids' friendly. Big gardens and a lake around the hotel. Despite the "high season", we were always able to find the sunbeds and umbrellas; the staff checks the availability and bring more sunbeds if needed. Hotel has 3 swimming pools, one of which has an sandy beach(!). Swimming pools are not very deep (1,40m) - safe for kids. Ocean beach is 5 mins away. Excellent fish restaurant near the lake, with large variety of seafood. The main restaurant offers buffet dinner - different each day; so you're not getting bored. Not a lot of entertainment after the dinner at the late evening, so if you want some activities you can go to Marina (where all the bars, restaurants, clubs of Vilamoura are situated) which is about 5 mins walk. The hotel staff is very friendly and the service is great.

Stayed here with my husband for 2 nights early July as a 'luxury treat' before spending a week in Albufeira. We wish we could have stayed longer. Everything about this resort is fabulous. From the outstanding service to the luxury facilities and only a few minutes from the marina. We couldn't fault one thing. Will definately return in the future.

This hotel was a great choice and our new favourite in Vilamoura. We stayed in the Hilton previous but the Lake a Resort had the edge overall.

The hotel has good outdoor pools and sunbathing space with plenty of loungers, cushions and a few day beds and cabanas. The cool sea breeze makes sunbathing a bit more comfortable.

We were able to get a day bed on most of the days which was great. The large sand bottomed pool was fantastic for a cooling dip.

The pool bar serves good drinks and decent food. Some of the food items were a little hit and miss when compared to the Hilton (e.g club sandwich) but good overall.

We had a panoramic view room which was nice and overlooked the pool allowing us to survey available day beds etc. I recommend a line of day beds that are up some steps away from the pool and the kids a bit.

We are in the marina every night so didn't try the main restaurants in the hotel apart from breakfast which was good.

If you are looking a nice hotel to relax and top up your tan that is in walking distance of a range of evening dining options then this is for you.

Great hotel with very professional and friendly staff. Nice pool area and great breakfast. Toilet is separate from bathroom what i like. Good location, close to the restaurants but still in a quiet corner.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in early July, 2014. We had already spent a week in an apartment at Victoria Boulevard, Vilamoura. We were joined by our son and his wife and we had an absolutely brilliant time at the hotel. The staff are outstanding and each one of them go out of their way to please. They are very efficient and courteous. The room was spacious with a brilliant big bed and fantastic pillows. Our room overlooked the garden and the pool area. The breakfasts were fantastic and the highlight of my day! We loved the spacious gardens and had many walks. The beach is only about 5 mins accessible by walking through the garden and across the road. The Marina is only a 5-10 min walk away, depending on which one of the many restaurants you choose. There were lots of family groups of all ages - lots of young couples with small children as well as teenagers and young adults. There are 3 pools and a very nice pool bar. There is organised football etc and opportunities to play table tennis, pool and basketball. There is a spa and a gym too. We would love to return to this fantastic hotel again. Full marks to the staff!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 3rd floor and overlooked the garden and one of the pools. We did not have any p...
