“EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY”
Reviewed 5 July 2011

Having read other reviews i was reasonably happy that this hotel was a good choice.How right I was. Friendly staff on arrival,check in with a minimum of fuss. Hotel very clean. Maid service every day,towels changed daily.Bar area and pool area good,plenty of loungers albeit they are a bit tired and probly need updating.Breakfast typically continental with meats cheese bread,fruit but you get what it says in the brochure.Free wifi and air con a bonus.Only one issue beds a liitle on the hard side but we did get used to them.A great little hotel

My partner and I have just got back from a week stay at the Zodiaco Hotel. The hotel is a lovely clean well presented hotel, don't be alarmed by the outside bright orange decor!
The staff were extremely friendly, the rooms were cleaned everyday with clean towels each day. The rooms have a t.v , hairdryer and air conditioning.
The hotel has a large pool which isn't heated so we found this a bit too cold even in very hot weather but we manned up and got in eventually!
The hotel is a short walk (5 mins) to the beach and about 10-15 mins to the shops. The hotel is a very quiet one with no evening entertainment but there is a large screen t.v off of the bar area and a pool table . The town is also quiet maybe a bit too sleepy for some, but if your looking for a quite relaxing holiday this is defiantly the hotel for you.
We walked to the next town of Villamoura several times during our stay and highly recommend this, the walk takes about 40 minutes but you walk along the sea front the whole way. Villamoura has a lovely harbour with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.

As has been mentioned in other reviews the first impression was a bit daunting but don't be put off by this. The staff and cleanliness and the hotel in general - all excellent. We went in June 2010 and enjoyed it so much we booked again in Sept 2010, Have also booked again for June 2011 - can't wait.

Short walk to the town, approx 10 min. Also short walk to beaches. Little supermarket just few mins walk from hotel.

Ideal for couples but nothing to do for children which only adds to the appeal for myself and partner.

Room Tip: There are certain rooms you can hire a fridge.

Stayed there for a few nights recently, what a great find. On arrival the staff were very helpful and the room was very clean and modern. Being out of the summer season the pool was unheated and uncleaned, but swimming was still possible. Breakfast was typically continental - bread, cheese, ham, yoghurts and cereal. The free wifi was handy. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the beach, and around 5 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket. When leaving we asked for a taxi to the airport and were offered one for €33. We requested he just called us a taxi and we go on the meter and it only cost €21. I don't think they're trying to rip you off - just that maybe they've not adjusted their prices yet.

Room Tip: Don't take their taxi voucher to the airport.

i have just come back from my first solo holiday and i was delighted that i had picked this hotel.From the minute i entered the hotel i got that feeling of warmth and friendliness from the staff.My room was nice and ample for my needs.Cleaners came everyday .Breakfast was lovely ,The waiters were most attentive and corteous at all times.There is a small pool where i spent my mornings relaxing and reading ,In the afternoon i would head for walks ,the beach is only ten minutes walk from the Zodiaco , the promenade to the marina in vilamoura is well worth walking and of course there are beach bars on route if you fancy stopping for a super bock only €1 a glass. Wine was also very cheap and the portaguese red is lovely. Although there is no entertainment at the hotel ,i met lots of people and the criac was good.The bar staff Lee and Louis kept us entertained.Taxi to Vilamoura is about €5 where there is plenty of night life.The gypsy Market is a short walk from the hotel on a Wednesday .lots of bargains there. I will definetly be going back to the Zodiaco

Looking for a cheap week away but don't want to be worrying about it being a total dive?
Stay Here!!! I have to admit the value for money was so good we where a bit dubious about Hotel Zodiaco. When we arrived in the darkness and saw the cheesy flashing neon sigh for Hotel Zodaco on the horizon we started to worry!!!......
We couldn't have been further from the truth. The Hotel is clean, well appointed, the staff are; seriously, fantastic. All spoke excellent english and gave us some excellent tips of where to go to avoid the usual tourist crap and fodder.
The Room was a great size, air conditioned, looked newly decorated & had a big clean bathroom with air con also. A TV and the option of renting a fridge, windows had those great shop shutter things so no chance of Mozzies at night when I normally get eaten alive.
Breakfast included, georgious portuguese breads, cheese hams etc. Again staff lovely and so helpful, even down to telling us Irish and English which tea bags to use!!!
There is a good size pool out the back with beds etc and it is nice and quiet. However if you have kids the pool is not policed, so one of you would have to be keeping an eye.
I would deffo recommend this Hotel, they where so nice I would wan't to give them business again myself. I reckon for a couple of 100 Euro more elsewhere you really couldn't do much better than here so keep the extra few quid for your holiday and stay @ Zodiaco : )
