The staff were fantastic and especialy the Bar and Restaurant Manager Pecho real nice guy as where all the staff. Food was excellent, nice wine and port. The beach restaurant 2 Passos is well worth a visit. We played both the hotels courses we played Los Pinheiros Alton and San Lorenzo and met some great people.

Four of us, two golfers and two non golfers recently spent a week at the Formosa Park Hotel and apartments. We had a two bedroom apartment facing the pool. The hotel staff were fantastic, nothing to much trouble. The apartment was spotless, well equipped, and the service good. The balcony ran the full length of the apartment, and got the sun all day, which made it an ideal place to sit and relax. The men enjoyed 4 rounds of golf, playing the Los Pinheiros and San Lorenzo courses, they were VERY impressed with the course conditions. the non golfers were able to relax around the pool, although the water in March was still to cold to swim, the walks around nature reserve/ park and the beach were fantastic. (the beach was about a 10 minute walk, ) and there were a number of small cafes on the beach,.This holiday location suited us fine, and we would be very happy to go back to the Formosa, however be aware that there are no shops or restaurants within walking distance, and we where not able to even buy milk from the hotel to take to our apartment. A taxi to Quinta shopping centre (30 euros return) solved this issue. The hotel reception were happy to organise this. There was no problem in getting refreshments by the pool / terrace or sent to the room. (Happy Hour in the bar was excellent value!) The breakfast and evening meals were good. (the head waiter was very approachable, and friendly)

We will I am sure go back.

Room Tip: We liked the pool facing apartment, as the balcony got the sun all day, the other side of the hotel...

Revisited Formosa Park last week. Still as good as ever despite the days when bacon was not on the breakfast menu. Staff still great and friendly. I would recommend it to any golfing groups and share a two bedroom apartment.

Room Tip: Chose pool facing rooms

Just returned from 4 day golf trip to the Algarve where we played Los Pinheiros Alton and San Lorenzo courses....both are wonderful courses, beautifully kept and some fantastic views out to sea from San Lorenzo. The Formosa Park hotel/apts were just fantastic... we stayed in a 2 bed for 4 persons.... firstly the size of the room took our breath away.. you walk into a huge living room with TV, settee, chairs table.... off there is a very well stocked kitchenette with a 4 ring electric oven/hob...microwave kettle toaster... what more do you need... two spacious bedrooms with wardrobes and drawers for storage.... each room and dining area has a door leading to a long balcony which runs the length of the room... the down side, if there is one, is it is pretty isolated with not much around so car hire would be best suited (we had transfers organised each day).... Vilamoura and Albufuera are a taxi rida (25/30 euros) away the former is fabulous......

I have recently returned from a lovely few days at this hotel.A golfing trip for a friends birthday.The staff were all friendly and helpful.The one bed apartments were spacious well designed and clean.The beds are very firm, but after 18 holes of golf we were so tired it didn t bother us too much. The only bad point is that whilst we spent 3 days on the golfcourse without any problems from mozzie bites my husband got bitten a number of times in the room.Our friends had the same problem and located a cluster in their room ! That being the only downside, breakfast was very good , they even let us in early on our departure day.I would recommend this hotel if you want a quiet ,peaceful time as it is a taxi ride to any nightlife.

We have just returned from 3 weeks at the Formosa. All the staff were pleasant and good at their jobs. The breakfasts were very acceptable with a good choice. The restaurant was good for a hotel. The hotel was very popular for golfers because of the golf packages offered - Pinerois Altos and San Larenzo courses. Unfortunately, the kitchenettes were in need of a refurb/re-equipped as the equipment was very old and the bathrooms require a refurb as they are so old. The location is good but remote and a car is a must for non-golfers.
If WiFi is a requirement - forget it as the system used at this hotel had big difficulties and it was expensive. The only other downer was the tv that could not receive BBC or ITV - though this may have not been a fault of the hotel.
We can only rate this hotel with 3 stars but with minimal cost refurbishment it could be a good 4 star. If the management can correct the failings we will certainly stay again in the Formosa.

Room Tip: Pool or sea view are the best

Our 2 bedroom apartment was huge - plenty of space for a family of 4 - nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. Big balcony with not great view over the play area - may be worth spending the extra to get a sea view if you plan on spending a lot of time on the balcony. The hotel is just 5 minutes pleasant walk from an enormous, undeveloped beach - and also the Formosa nature reserve, a beautiful wetland with storks and flamingoes. Great for walking. Breakfast was included and was excellent, with enough variety so you didn't have to eat the same things every day. This is very much a golf hotel - even though it was half term, our kids were the only kids there. Our only gripe is that the people in the apartment above us were very noisy - they seemed to enjoy rearranging the furniture late at night - this didn't spoil our stay and didn't keep us awake, but I suspect the rooms aren't particularly well soundproofed, which is why I have given 4 stars, not 5.
