The hotel and setting are stunning. The newly refurbished room was ideal and house keeping were diligent in meeting any requests (mosquito repellent!). But why no daily bottle of water in the rooms - come on - at these prices!
However, we travelled for the spa experience and aimed for a relaxing time. Whilst we appreciate it is school holiday time the place was over run with badly behaved and un supervised children. The signs requesting'silence' around the spa pool were completely ignored and staff did not enforce. Hardly relaxing after a great spa treatment. Beware- those with very young kids travel in term time too.
They need to consider an adults only area, now provided by most resorts regardless of budget. This is not a cheap hotel.
The restaurant provides very good food, but high prices. Thankfully we read your reviews and went to the large supermarket 15 minutes walk away to stock up.

- 50 kilometres from Faro airport (FAO, ALgarve - Portugal), the Blue&Green Vilalara Thalassa Resort is a lakeside haven of style, comfort and exclusivity. As you gaze out and enjoy the setting you will realize the resort’s true essence and magic. This is a fascinating place where every detail has been designed for your wellbeing. Located on the Praia das Gaivotas cliff overlooking the sea, with a 12-hectare area consisting mainly of magnificent gardens, the Resort has 100 junior suites, 11 suites and 13 apartments. The low-rise architecture is marked by soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. It includes one restaurant of Portuguese cuisine and gourmet, low-calorie menus, and another with theme dinners and barbecues. It also features six outdoor pools of fresh and sea water and one of its main trademark images: the Thalassotherapy and Spa Center, the first in Portugal and one of the most respected in the world. soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. ... more less
