We spent two nights here and could have stayed forever. The check in was flawless and the guest relations young woman who walked us to the room took us through the amenities in this 9 restaurant hotel, I usual ignore this, for Vila Vita, listen.Excellent large room recently refurbished - we could still smell the paint, but we forgave that - overlooking the ocean. The bar was fabulous, comfortable and with a great staff. We should have been more adventurous, but having been satisfied once, we went to the Adega for dinner both nights. I particularly liked the Mozambique grilled prawns and suckling pig. In addition the wines were beyond excellent. A feature that may appeal to some is that the wonderful and somewhat healthy breakfast is served in two restaurants, one that let's children wander freely, one that is childless. Finally, this is a big resort, we never felt that, as a matter of fact it felt way under used and the beach had never more than a dozen people on it. Two thumbs up.

My family and I have been coming to this hotel for the past 10 years to escape from the drab cold weather in England in February. And although there is no guarantee the temperature in the algarve will be hot it is a welcome sight to see some sunshine in this wonderful part of Portugal and especially vila vita parc. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the service is second to none and the hotel and grounds are a paradise. The breakfast has always been a highlight with its enormous choice of freshly prepared foods to choose from the buffet. The beautiful beach, grounds, mini golf, 9 hole golf course, pools and spa, there has always been something to while away the day. It is very quiet at this time of year and some of the restaurants are not open but there is still the choice of the nautico which has a shuttle bus service to and from it and has a wonderful setting on the beach, The beer Keller is great fun if not an unusual place to find yourself in the algarve. It is also nearby to visit the many lovely places to be found on this part of the algarve. We hope to visit again for our February recharge!

Spent three nights as a family with teenagers at the Vila Vita Parc. The facility is impeccable, and the service by nearly 100% of the staff is outstanding. As many reviewers have said, there is no request too big or too small. Whatever you ask for is done immediately with a big smile. If something goes wrong they clearly take it as a personal mission to make it up to you. This place is clearly run and staffed by people who take very great pride in their jobs.

Most notably, if you go and need anything, go ask Pedro N. He assisted us on probably a dozen different requests. Every request was handled in an “above-and-beyond” manner. While for us, Pedro was our “go to guy”, it is important to note that every staff member that we met was of a similar caliber.

We stayed in a family suite and did see many of the other buildings and rooms. We have to agree with the other reviewers, every room at the VVP is excellent. We loved our stay at the VVP and recommend it highly – but as our title indicates, everything at the VVP is expensive but everything is top notch.

In terms of restaurants, they had a nice diversity of establishments – the Bela Vista was our least favorite in terms of food the service was fine, the Arte Nautica was excellent in both food and service, and the Whale food was good (for lunch) but the service was “off”. We had considered eating at the Ocean Restaurant but chose not to spend over $1,000 for dinner for four.

Overall, a highly recommended resort if you find yourself in the Algarve, especially if you have a young family.

Room Tip: The family suites, at least the one we had (Room 12) was absolutely perfect for two adults and two t...

We returned with our twin daughters for our yearly visit to Vila Vita and were once again welcomed and pampered during our stay. The bed rooms had been totally refurbished and we loved them! The service was of an even higher quality than usual and it was lovely to see all the usual staff along with some new members. One thing we always notice here is that the staff are always keen to learn from the guests and are not offended if you make any suggestions . We had a wonderful trip along the coastline to view the caves which was spectacular, organised by the hotel. Breakfast in the Bela Vita is the best we have ever experienced in any hotel. The service at the Delphim pool bar is superb. Transfers were both smooth and efficient. All in all we had a wonderful week and can't thank the staff enough! We will be back next year for our 10th visit!

Spectacular. Don't be put off by the size of the resort - it has all the perks of a boutique hotel but with the facilities of a large resort. We can not recommend Vila Vita enough - the staff make this place. The ambience is unrivalled.
