very happy with my stay at Hotel Zodiaco, the room was clean with a daily maid service, the bathroom had fresh towels each day, the breakfast was hams, cheeses, rolls, toast, yoghurts that sort of thing but all fresh and plenty of it, the pool was clean and tidy, and the staff were polite and very helpful, its about a 5 min walk to the beach, you can do a lot worse, good value for your money

stayed at the Zodiaco last week, visiting family close by. we stayed for 5 nights and booked thru travel republic (who were cheaper than doing it direct with the hotel) at just over £30 a night for B & B it is good value for money. Our room looked out onto the pool and was very clean (maid came in every day), they have automatic metal shutters on the windows which are good for keeping the morning sun out if you want a bit of a lie in ! the rooms are pretty basic, but comfortable and have air con and a safe which is good. Breakfast was cold option only (breads, yogurts, cheese etc) so do'nt go expecting a full English !!!, but the coffee was pleasant stuff for a change and the food decent and plentiful.
A couple of negatives, the pool had plenty of beds around it but was freezing and had lots of bugs etc floating in it so was'nt the cleanest pool ever ! They are also putting in a new dual carriage way directly outside the hotel, we never noticed any additional noise, but be careful walking on the road side as there is a distinct lack of pavement at the moment !
All in all a decent hotel for the money (have stayed in much worse for a lot more!) A good hotel as a base to go exploring around the area, Quarteira has a decent prom and beach with a few bars and about 20 mins walk further there is the marina with plenty of bars and restaurants.
ENJOY !

Room Tip: We stayed in room 109 which faces the pool away from the road which was pretty quiet.

Stayed for a few days bed and breakfast (restaurant and snack bar not open as it was hotel's out of season period). Seems to be more of a business hotel than holiday. It is on the outskirts of the town (10-15 minute walk). Good service by the staff who were very helpful. Nice, clean and modern hotel. Only downside is there are no balconies to any of the rooms. Rooms are a good size though walls are thin. Nice decent sized pool area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is on a budget and looking for a cheap holiday.

Room Tip: Higher floor has less noise.

I stayed here end of April'13 all I can say is this is the cleanest hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in! (Travel to this hotel see last paragraph) I had a room facing the rear / side of the hotel; I have no complaints at all. My TV broke one day, it was REPLACED within 15 minutes yes REPLACED, might I add this was a flat screen wall mounted number. Maintenance guy was lovely, non English speaking but very manners-able.
I hired a bike (from the Hotel) the first day and cycled to Vilamoura most days. Hotel is the furthest hotel in the area, it’s away from the main hub but this was perfect for good walking exercise and cycling. I would definitively recommend staying here. The breakfast had no eggs (!!) which was such a shame.
Travel from Faro to this hotel, I paid €30 from the Airport at 10pm at night, as I booked last minute I was unable to pre-book travel however on t he return I ordered a shuttle from the hotel which cost me €9!!! Yes that was it! And to be honest they were prompt friendly and a nice shiney new bus! Apparently they are called ‘followmetours.net’, but the site seems to have viruses! I would definitely use them again if I could via the site.
well worth my long weekend pennies!

Room Tip: Room 118 was perfect for me!

Ok just got back from this great hotel. Want to warn. well warn is a strong word word but for all the great reviews no one has mentioned the massive dug up road directly outside the hotel. Granted it did not spoil our Hol but it would have been less of a shock if someone had mentioned the 3 JCB,s that greeted us on arrival. Once its finished it will be lovely and such a shame for a lovely guy down the road in Nicole,s Kactus Bar as its tricky to get to but well worth a pop in for a bifana and a bottle of Crystal. The market on a wednesday is ok not as full on as the turkish ones but be aware of the watch sellars peddlin hash.just turn left out the hotel an its bout half hr walk up past the lidl.
So back to the Hotel lovely and clean pleasant staff.nice pool . No balconies which is a shame as i do like a cheeky beer sat out on an afternoon while the wife has a siesta. But room was clean and well set out. Shutters on the windows which is nice as can shut out early morning light altho we were still up at half 7 every morning. The breakfast is continental lovely cheese and ham good breads simple but good start to day.few tips for ya. As you leave the Hotel turn right cut across large carpark to take you to see front lovely long promenade with bars dotted. Try Fantasia set back on the right there wed,fri buffets are good value at 9.99. They also do a mean white russian and Pina colada.further on is lovely restaurant called pic nic nice traditional fare altho the owner is. Little crazy (in a good way).take a bus to albufiera to experience the escalators to the beach .tickets are 8,50 return .All in all was a great hol and would go again altho maybe next year when th work is finished. Hope the review has helped and if ya go Have a good one . Have a Super Bock for me lol

Room Tip: Room 101 gets good wifi which is free

We stayed 5 nights at Zodiaco. The room was really very nice and specious. The bed was very comfortable and big. And the bathroom with very wide shower was always clean! The reception stuff was very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is child friendly. Child can sleep with parents at no extra cost! And the breakfast is also included in the price. It was the same breakfast choice every day but more than enough to have a good start of the day.
The swimming pool was very nice and warm enough to swim in.
And last but not least - there is parking so you do need to worry where to leave your car
