We’ve stayed in the hotel for 8 days from the 14/09. We travelled as young couple (26&33) Overall we thought that hotel was great.
Food was great and lots of choice. We had few meals out in the evening and I would definitely recommend trying steak Portuguese style – loved it. All drinks at the hotel were nice, was pleasantly surprised that the wine from the barrels was nice as in the different hotels they always tend to be the opposite.
We went to Abufeira, Praya de Rocha and Lagos and even tho they were very nice we felt that Delfim Hotel was in the best location. Beach (and the views) which is less than 5 min walk was amazing, what we loved was that it wasn’t too busy and it didn’t feel like you are in the holiday spot but between locals so you could experience the ‘unspoilt’ Portugal.
Hotel itself could do with updating the decor, but to be honest we don’t go on holiday to sit in the room and look and the wallpaper. All facilities were very good ( but gym could do with air conditioning because after 10 min of working out it felt like you are in sauna), biggest surprise was that the indoor pool is actually next to the bar, you could still swim in it but I wasn’t too keen due to location. The outdoor pool is large enough for anybody, and the water is refreshing not to say cold. Shame that the Laguna bar was closed , but that was probably due to being slightly out of season. All staff worked very hard to keep everything clean, especially in the restaurant and they were doing good job. Our room was on the 8th floor (high enough for me) and it was spacious and very comfortable. View was great as we could see the water to the left and Alvor town to the right). Despite being such a big and busy hotel, you feel like you can have your own space as the grounds are so vast.
I would recommend boat trip to Lagos to see the cliffs, moreover we were lucky to see dolphin too which was absolutely amazing as it swam next to our boat.
It was our first holiday in Portugal and we would come back again and stay in the hotel. It was great value for money and would definitely recommend it to someone who wants to relax in the sun and enjoy lovely food, and great views.
