Formosa Park Hotel & Apartments
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Almancil
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Formosa the staff are helpful and friendly, breakfasts were good and an excellent choice of food for all tastes.
The rooms are roomy and well laid out but be warned the sofa beds are not comfortable and a couple of our party found theirs were broken. That said everthing was very clean and the sheets and towels changed every day we were all impressed with the housekeeping.The location of the Hotel does mean you need a car to get to most bars and restaurants the beach is just a 10 minute walk and you will find places to eat there in the daytime. A good selection of golf course, with a 20 minute drive.

Room Tip: If you are in a party it may well be worth booking an apartment with lounge and 2 bedrooms.

This aparthotel is perfect as there is a very large lounge area, huge kitchen and a twin bedroom each side of the living area each with own bathroom. Thus it is ideal for two couples sharing or a group of friends. We were on a golfing break and superb courses are nearby. Breakfast is excellent, the pool area well provided with loungers and kept spotless. There is a bar on the pool terrace but set apart behind plants etc so reasonably quiet and a nice place to have a snack. The area is beautiful and as it is in a natural reserve avoids the excessive development of much of the Algarve. Visit Tavira, Olhao and old Faro, all worth the trip.

Room Tip: All are good as far as we can tell but one away from the pool area is good as golf ears in groups ca...

Just returned from a fabulous golfing break in Portugal. We stayed at the excellent Formosa Park where the staff and facilities are excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. Golf at San Lorenzo and Pinheros Altos IS UNBELIEVABLE. The greens are like ligtening and the views breathtaking. I will never golf in Spain again. We are already planning to return again next year. If you get the chance to go here take it. I promise you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool facing room.

While only a three star hotel, this place gives amazing value for money, especially if using one of their golfing packages. For under £300 you get 3 nights, two free rounds of golf on the excellent Altos courses, half price on San Lorenzo (my favourite in the Algarve - a must play) and two evening meals. Take one of the rooms over looking the pool - worth paying the extra. Nice and clean, quiet, well located for the Quinta and surrounding golf courses plus if you like beaches and nature reserves there's lots to do nearby. Not for those seeking nightlife and a lively atmosphere but if you're looking for a nice quiet break with activities thrwon in then this is amazingly good value.

Room Tip: Choose one with a pool view. These are apartments with separate living area and kitchette. Basic but...

I really enjoyed my stay here, FANTASTIC and very very helpful staff, nice rooms, excellent food, better rates for golf courses and very nice area in pine trees forest. My only criticism is the price of the internet. To charge 17 Eur a day is really really lot. But anyway, will come again!!

we went on a golf vacation and found a perfect place. spacious and clean two-room apartment, very good breakfast buffet with tasty fresh fruit and attentive staff. happy hour is well visited by all guests, the bar staff is extremely friendly and accomodating, and make the bar feel more like a living room than a hotel bar, the reception staff helped us with all sorts of things, from recommending good restaurants to changing flights to changing rental cars, all in all really excellent service and great value for money. several groups of golfers go there every year because it's such a good place, we'll definitely come back again!
