“Absolutely great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Just returned from a wonderful 5 nights here - brilliant time! The staff can't do enough and the hotel is 4 star by English standard it is truly great. I read the other reviews - yes the path is not good for kids, a car would have been good to have - yes it is a bit in the middle of nowhere (it doesn't claim to be at the beach or in a busy place and nor are most water parks and themeparks - I would have thought that a little obvious!) There is a free bus to the nearest busy places and a market once a week. Taxis are about 8 Euros but the hotel sometimes call a private car service for you (quite special) these are more expensive but worth it, it really is quite upmarket and a lovely experience. There is little to do on a evening in the hotel but again - it's not that kind of hotel. I would go back it really was lovely and hats off to the staff they bent over backwords - excellent holiday - even despite the rain!!! I can't believe we got such a decent hotel at a low price very, very pleased.

We stayed on the forth floor with a pool view room. We found it modern and very clean. There is a small fridge which is a nice touch. breakfast was from 7am to 10am and included, fresh fruit, yoghurt, croissants, cold meats and cheeses. Range of breads, choice of sausage, beans, bacon, hashbrown, boiled eggs. Recommend going early to get it piping hot.

You can buy a Buffett dinner for 20 euro pp. it's good but I would suggest going into town for a better choice. The lobby area has a good range of seating, you can watch sport on the large tv, order a bite to eat from the snack menu and buya drink from the bar. Drinks are reasonable, at the time of our stay they done a promotion on corona for 2.50! Euro

the hotel has an indoor gym, treadmill, cross trainer, spin bike and a range of weight machines. Beside it is the indoor pool with jacuzzi. It's perfect for the colder days and to relax in the evenings. It closes at 8pm.

The main attraction is the water and theme park. It's metres from the hotel and you get a free pass from reception. Normally this would cost 27 euro ( adult) 18 (child). There are loads of things to do here and if you have kids they will have a blast. I recommend the wave pool and the water roller coaster (europe's highest apparently) . There are lockers for your belonging, they cost 3 euro with 7euro deposit. You can bring in your own picnic too.

The hotel offered a daily shuttle to Quarteira and Vilamoura, approx 10.30am, and pick up 4.30pm. This is really useful. They also have a shuttle to the gypsie market each Wednesday, 10.30am, pickup 12.30pm. Some good deals to be found here. You can walk to town but its on the road edge. Taxi costs approx 8 euro to town.

The staff at the hotel were very kind and friendly. The receptionists were very helpful throughout our stay.
Overall we would recommend this hotel, it may be a little out of town, but it offers so much that you won't mind. Get it booked! :-)

Amazing 4 star hotel staff were excellent and very friendly, lots to do for my family we travelled with a 16 month old who had a great time in the kids playroom and at the on site playground. Breakfast was included and was fresh each morning we also ate in the hotel for dinner which was great value for money, drinks were reasonable 2.50 for a glass of wine. Free shuttle every day to town where you could walk to villamoura in about 30 minutes along the beach boardwalk.
Rooms were very modern and clean and it had the most welcoming babycot I could have slept in myself as it looked so comfy. All rooms had a fridge and a balcony. The pools for me were so cold so mybe could have been heated at certain times of year. From the 1st of May the waterpark is open and your entrance is fee every day with your stay at the hotel.This hotel is a hidden gem and all the photos on the website are true to life it cant be faulted at all.

Room Tip: All rooms are of superior quality very modern and clean all have balconys but if you get a pool view...

Could not believe our luck. did a search for a cheap out of season deal and ended up at this gem. A recently built modern designer hotel with really helpful staff who have gone out of their way to make our stay a great one. The Park is closed for the winter so our free entry isnt of much use but we did get to walk around and it looks like a nice place for kids and really big kids too... when it opens again at Easter. The hotel is being used by bussiness people during the week and a few couples on the weekend but it is bound to be buzzing once the summer comes. Mean time we have the indoor heated swiming pool and jaquzi all to ourselves every day and rearely see more than 4 people at meal times... how can they afford to do this.... we feel like royalty.
If you come and stay... say Hi to Claudia on reception... she is quite charming and brings a smile every morning.

Room Tip: Most rooms overlook the pool with a choice of south or west facing, clever design and air con mean e...

Awesome, lovely new hotel. Nice, friendly staff who were keen to help. Although as stated the hotel is a bit "out of town", there is a free courtesy bus which goes to Quarteira and Vilamoura daily. Adjacent, and included, water/theme park is good fun and very clean. Definitely recommend the food and service provided by very professional staff who could not do enough to help make our stay a brilliant one. We will be back!

We hab been in aquashow hotel 2 nights in midle of august in a 2 conneting rooms and couldn´t be better! Our teen had been all day in aquatic park, hotel provides free entrance for guests, and me and my husband visit the aquatic park but stay in hotel pool in the afternoon. We arrive in beggining of our holidays and it was very good for our teens that had great time in aquatic park and for us that could relax in pool all afternoons! Pool area is very nice, plenty of sunbeds, very quit during the day, spotless clean and pool bar is open all day with fresch meals, icecrem and drinks.
Hotel rooms are very good with varand with table and chairs, AC, TV, fridge, confortable beds, nice furniture, beutiful bathroom, amenities ans spotless clean.
Hotel provides pool towles but with extra coast. However, free entrance in aquatic park, indoor pool, gymnasium and outdoor pool.
We lunch ad dinner the 2 days in hotel. Breakfast and dinner are buffet service, plenty of choice and very profissioal ad friedly staff. Buffet diner coast 20€ person wihout drinks ad light meals at luch time are not pricely. There are a few restaurants and bars in aquatic park open at luch time but we prefer eat in hotel ( next door aquatic park ) because is much more quit ad better quallity.
Hotel is very quit during the day, only a few couples and childreen but is very buzy when aquatic park cloose at 7PM! many teen and childreen in indoor and outdoor pool, however is funny!
Hotel provides free cortesy bus to Vilamora marina and beach a few times a day.
Aquashow hotel is new, open this summer and furniture, service, restaurant, cleaness, staff couldn´t be better! Congratulations! We will return next year!

What a great hotel this is, we visited as a family and hotel only opened recently. Spotless and very clean. Food was good and plenty of it, staff very pleasant. There was lots of sunbeds and bean bag chairs around the pool, never seemed to get busy as lots of people visit the water park. Hotel is next door to water park we went twice but the queues for rides were very long, would recommend go late afternoon to ensure you are not spending all day in queues. Not much going on at night although they did provide 2 nights of entertainment which consisted of greek dancing. There are no footpaths/shops around the hotel so be careful on the main road and the restaurant called The Sol is well worth a visit food and service is spot on. Enjoy your stay.
