Vila Rosa Hotel

Reviewed 14 August 2012

Just back from Vila Rosa and am missing it already. The staff were so helpful and informative, they couldn't have done more. The resort itself is clean, comfortable and goes the extra mile for visitors. It looks lovely too, not high rise with a lovely pool. Location is great and we're definitely going back.

My fiance and I stayed at the Club Villa Rosa for 3 nights. We booked the resort last minute and were not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at how clean the hotel and room was. The pool area is beautiful. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the beach/main strip area where you can find many restaurants, shops, clubs, bars, lounges. It is really nice to walk the strip at night. The hotel is also about a 15 minute walk to the main town (Portimao) where there are some fast food restaurants (McDonalds) and a few grocery stores (Lidl and Continent).
I would defintely recommend Club Villa Rose to anyone on a budget who is looking for something clean and simple and not looking for a luxury hotel.

Just returned from Vila Rosa, very enjoyable 10 night stay. Arrived at 10.15am - knew check in was 4pm, our room was ready for us at 12.30 very impressed and thankful. Just a short walk (10 minutes) to main strip with shops, restaurants and bars. Beach lovely. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was a good size and had plenty of storage area. Enjoyed the Irish Bars - good music, plenty of choice. Bar in Hotel was very good and staff were very friendly - Overall very enjoyable stay

The staff at reception and around the resort were incredibly helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and made use of the great facilities.
The pool was lovely, with another smaller pool on the other side of the complex. The location was also perfect, 5 mins walk away from the beach and strip.
Cannot fault the cleanliness of our room and again compliment the helpful nature of the staff.
Overall a lovely stay and I would recommend this resort to any age/family!

Vilarosa is a perfect place for spending holidays in Algarve. Hotel with very sympathic service supporting visitors, safe, with nice atmosphere. In minus - far from Portimao center and supermarket, but walking is needed for our fit and health. Truly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Pls choose room near smaller pool as more quiet than in biuldings round main pool and restaurant, of...

I have just come back fom staying in Villa Rosa for one week with my three sisters and nephew. Each of us had a brilliant holiday and we are very sad to be home! As i said in the title it really is hard to fault Villa Rosa.

The complex caters for everyone including children, couples, single people (that want to relax, maybe not the young wild ones). In my opinion the facilites in Villa Rosa are what makes it. There are tennis courts, cheap and cheerful mini market and two swimming pool areas. One of the swimming pool area is smaller and quieter which is ideal when you want to relax away from children and music. It has a bar which serves food and drink. The bigger pool area has a bit more of an atmposhere and serves a bigger range of food. It has a lovely big resteraunt and bar area. There is also lovely grounds to the complex, nice grass areas to sunbath if you don't want to lie on the sun loungers.

We stayed in the two bed family room which was so spacious and homely. It had a lovely living area, fully equiped kitchen, backgarden with sun loungers and also a small little front garden. The room felt like our own little private villa.

The acutal location of the complex was perfect, 10 min walk to the strip and beach which meant we were not right on top of the hussle and bussle and not too far away at the same time!

Another touch this complex offers is the staff. There is a lovely friendly lady that works in the mini market and another polite happy young lady that works at the smaller pool area. They made us feel very weclome. The bar men and waiter were also excellent.

We liked this complex so much that we are hoping to come back next year for two weeks! The place has so much to offer we feel a week was far too shot.

Thank you Villa Rosa for making this stay so memorable :-)

Room Tip: We stayed in block A which had the villa like rooms.

I have been coming to this hotel for the last 15 years and it never goes down hill. The staff are always friendly and easy to talk to. Was a shame that the pool bar was closed for our first few days when we were there but its understandable as they were training someone up. I do not know why there is some bad comments just ignore them as this is the place to go. Also if you wish to go out for a nice meal I recommend two place one is in Praia da Rocha the other in Alvor. The one in Praia da Rocha is the Titanic and the other in Alvor is Mister Alvor the owner of it used to work at Vila Rosa behind the bar and is very friendly just get a taxi there only costs 8 euros but there was only 6 of us. The reception at Vila Rosa were so helpful as we were celebrating my parents anniversary and supplied us with strawberries and sparkling wine which was lovely. Ignore the bad comments as this hotel is such a nice place to relax and enjoy yourself.

Room Tip: The apartments are probably the nicest rooms at the hotel.
