“Fantastic Hotel and Excellent Location.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Really enjoyed our stay here, and can't thank the staff enough for making us feel so welcomed and making our stay very special.

A special thank you to Maria, Isabella (also known as Delicious) and I think Anna-Marie.

Isabella is great fun, great sense of humor and very welcoming.

Maria went out of her way to ensure we had special meals that met our religious dietary requirements. EG no meat and food cooked in Alcohol etc is forbidden.

We went half Board and therefore she was always willing to cook something else for us.

All staff work so hard and have to cover every area, so please be patient- no need to rush- we're on holiday- LOL.

This is a nice quiet Hotel, very clean, very friendly, and the best thing is you get to talk and meet all the guest in the Hotel- we have made some great friends and hope to see them again in the near future.

This is a quiet hotel in that most of the guest are retired couples, and this is great for me and my partner who are light sleepers, so no doors banging and rowdy people walking in at 3am.

Location is great with easy access to both Vilamoura and Quarteria.

I would definitely recommend to others who are looking for a nice quiet relaxing holiday.

Only downside I have is that they only have twin rooms, and no double beds.

For those after a party and wanting to meet likewise people- this is not for you.

Room Tip: all rooms have balconies and hotel is quiet throughout so doesn't matter which room you get.

This hotel is very small, and would be very nice if they did something about the drunken golfers who ruin it for others. There does not seem to be anyone in charge at the hotel who will say anything to them, people are still complaining about them as far back as 2011 this was mentioned. They give a bad name to the other golfers who come to this hotel and still enjoy themselves but without the foul language that they think we should all listen to, and the slamming of doors in the night and shouting. its a shame for the people who want to enjoy there holiday.

We first visited Praia Sol in 2009 having stayed at Dom Pedro Golf the year before. We returned in 2010 and after 2 years in Spain we returned in 2013.
We are a party of 8 golfers in our 50's who like a bit of peace & quiet mixed with a bit of 'fun' and this is the place for us. Having stayed in larger more 'up market' hotels on a number of occassions we believe this is a much better option. It is quieter, more friendly, clean and not too far from the centre of Vilamoura. It is situated behind Dom Pedro golf but with no direct road access although there is a lane which gets you too the bars etc in less than 5 minutes plus you can visit the bars in Quarteira very easily.
We go for a B&B option and whilst not the most extensive menu it covers every option. The bar area is fine and drinks not overpriced.
Rooms are spacious, clean and all have a balcony. Being only around 30 rooms on 2 floors you dont have the usual lift fight in the morning. There is a good outside area with a nice pool and with the exception of one day we had no problem getting a sun bed.
The hotel provides transfer to all golf courses within the Vilamoura area. Bus usually driven by Toni who likes a cake of chocolate!
The staff are all very helpful and friendly.
If we decide to return to Portugal next year Praia Sol will I think be our hotel choice again.

It was the first time we have stayed at this hotel but it WON'T be the last. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful the hotel is spotless and comfortable the staff worked hard in all areas and were really pleasant and helpful it was a wonderful relaxing break .Ask at the reception for the back gate to be unlocked it will save time on the way to the marina and this gate can be used on the return up to 22-00hrs .

Four of us went to this hotel, we all found it very friendly very clean the bar prices were cheaper than the bars outside which was a nice change, once we found our way out the back gate you just turn left out the gate and its about 10 mins walk to the marina which is a great place to visit to see how the other half live lol. The staff were all excellent very hard workers and couldnt do enough to help you 2 of the nights we had a singer/guitarist he was very good.all in all we really enjoyed our stay .. in june/july i think there might be a shortage of sunbeds it was annoying to see the english have copied the germans and claim there sunbed first thing in a morning and leave there towels on them even if there not using them till much later.
