Reviewed 3 April 2014

We have just returned from a very relaxing short break at this hotel..The hotel was clean and tidy,really well set out with a lovely bar/lounge area, our room was a very good size. The staff were always cheerful and willing to help you ( although there wasn't many).The food was a typical breakfast bacon, sausage, beans eggs, toast, fruit, cereal, so definitely nothing too moan about. The drinks are a very good price too. The location was a good base, if you used the back gate the beach was only a 5 minute stroll, and the Marina 10 minutes, where there's a varied range of restaurants and bars. Yes we would definitely go back again

Room Tip: Rooms facing onto car park don't get any sun

We had a great stay at this hotel. Instantly felt welcomed by the (mostly) happy and friendly staff. The hotel was really clean and tidy. The food was great. For the price we paid we can't fault it. Such a shame people write negative comments.

Note to the management - your staff are over worked, especially in the evening when one person has to run reception, the bar and serve food.

A fridge, tea and coffee making facilities would have been great to have in the room.

I would stay again.

We have recently returned from an 18 night stay at the Praia Sol which was most enjoyable. The
hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff worked very hard to ensure we had a pleasant stay.
Our room was adequate and well appointed, however,the balcony faced the side car park and did
not get any sun. The food in the restaurant was served buffet style for breakfast and waiter service for dinner. The food was good, although the choice was limited, portions were good and well cooked. During our stay the menu for dinner was never repeated. The bar is well stocked and
the prices reasonable. Lounge areas are comfortable with Sky TV's.Outside areas are well tended
with two pools ,loungers ,tables and chairs. We felt there were only three downsides to the hotel:
1,The location, which is a bit of a hike from Quartteira promenade however close to Vilamoura marina.
2,The hotel is grossly under staffed, one person to cover reception, bar and serve dinner is ridiculous!
3,No evening entertainment.

Many thanks to all the staff for an enjoyable experience
.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road get the most sun , however can be noisey

I booked this hotel for my husbands 65th birthday The hotel is set in small garden with pool and
terrace.There were only about 11 sunbeds which were a bit worse for wear,The rooms were clean and a decent size.The bar area is really nice and bar price are very good i.e. bottle of wine was
8,50 The thing we found odd was the fact that you had to order the following days meal the evening before with only a choice of 2 starter 2 main 2 sweets.all of which were quite good
There is a gate at rear of garden which leads to a path to Vilamoura marina five minute walk away
We had a lovely meal on the marina in the mayflower restaurant very reasonable lovely surroundingsNot a hotel for young people no entertainment but very relaxing and enjoyable.
Would we go back no

The Hotel may be a little quiet due to being the winter season and you will find everywhere in the Algarve is busier during the summer season.
We are pleased you had an enjoyable stay however we are sorry you would not return again in the future.

We arrived at this hotel for a 3 week stay. The hotel was clean, light and airy with very pleasant staff although there were not many of them. A nice lounge with 2 large TV screens and a bar plus the dining room were all visible on arrival. The description of the rooms was simple and modern and that is exactly how it was - no frills which suited us fine and the beds were comfortable and clean. If you wanted a fridge in your room then there was a charge for it. We had a balcony overlooking the pool area which was fine although being at the back of the hotel is in the shade, several people swapped rooms for one at the front of the hotel facing the car park as they got the sun. Breakfast was almost the same every day - scrambled eggs (very nicely made), sausage and beans plus lovely bread of various types, cold meats and cheese, yogurts, cereals etc. The evening meal was 2 choices generally - 1 fish 1 meat which you chose the night before and was served to you not self service. Again this food was very simple cooking but very acceptable. There was soup or a salad for starters most days and pudding was usually either a slice of cake or fresh fruit which was lovely. Only one night was there entertainment and since it was winter and dark outside we usually retired to our room after dinner and was able to watch both BBC and ITV as well as world news. All important events could be viewed in the lounge area alongside the bar if you wished to stay up for a drink. The pool area looked nice but was too cold in January for us to have a dip! Having experienced 3star hotels in other countries we now know that this one was good value. We would go there again.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel overlooks the pool area but the balcony does not have much sun, the front over...

I selected this hotel by its ratio on cost-benefit. Awesome place, with outdoor private parking lot. It is not quite near the beach, but can be a good choice to stay on summer vacations.

Rooms soundproofing could be a little bit better.
