Wonderful grounds everything on site
The resort is fascinating with breathtaking views of the beach. The view overlooking the pool is spectacular. The hotel has its own private beach which is beautiful. The hotel is landscaped very well with beautiful plants and flowers. The rooms are big and spacious, and the staff is very courteous. Would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone considering visiting Faro. The hotel should have had a tea/ coffe maker in the room. For the price you charge, this is an expectation. To call for room service costs 5 euro per person which normally other similar resorts worldwide do not chanrge
Superb location, great facilties and very friendly staff
marvellous place! excellent dinner. Not so good service for price and quality of food. Improvement is needed in staff. We ordered a glass of "Morgado de Ste Catherine" and another wine was served with no explanation.
Comfort and quietness. Should have towel service at beach
Excellent hotel in beautiful gardens, very nice staff, perfect for a resting family holiday. High standart new rooms. We were there a couple of years ago and will return for sure in the future! The Spa is wonderful. Only quite expensive. More attention should be given to room cleaning for this luxury hotel
A peaceful retreat with plenty of places not to do anything...... restaurant choices on site were limited
Spacious room, fully carpeted, well furnished; low rise accommodation; beautiful gardens and cliff top location. Daily change of complimentary pool towels. Restaurant prices are much too high.
The Vilalara is the most beautiful relaxing , peaceful and magical place I have ever stayed at. The staff are exceptional , the location is unimaginable and the peace and quiet is a tonic for life. I will visit the Vilalara many more times in the future without doubt. We have traveled extensively but this has got the be the top of our list for summer vacation. We hereby thank all the staff at Vilalara for a wonderful stay. there truly is nothing to dislike
excellent service by staff, beautiful grounds, private beach & overall pleasant ambience. Good buffet breakfast Forget the bar snacks - both too expensive and very poorly prepared. The main restaurant was acceptable - just. The food was OK but not exceptional however the prices were very high. You can easily find a better dining experience outside the hotel so only go to this restaurant if you really don't want to leave the hotel surroundings.
Well kept hotel and equally smart guests. Excellent food & beverage. Interior decor style needs updating.
We were impressed with the staff who were very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of repeat clientele for that reason The Hotel has a few restaurants to choose from so you can choose to dine in any one of them. We liked Arte Nautica as it is on the beach in Armacao de Pera - stunning location and brilliant fish, or you can have a snack The location isnt so great as it is out of town. If you are not mobile you will need to hire a car or take a taxi which are cheap and plentiful. The staff seemed to push their very expensive New Year dinner and there wasnt much choice. to dine elsewhere. They also naughtily put the costs of two New Years dinner on our bill when we hadnt even booked or attended the event which goes to show that behind the staff smiles there is the pound signs motive to make as much money as possible from their guests! We were not convinced the hospitality was genuine for that reason especially when the staff all repeated the same sentence - is there anything we can do for you. It seemed they attended a management school and were taught to say that
hotel was of a very high standard and we were very well treated by the staff. not really
Variety of restaurants, quality of food, amazing beach with beds and professional level of SPA. Servants in the restaurants expressed quite strong dissatisfaction if the tips were less than 10 %.
In addition to the above, I liked the peace & tranquility & space in general, in particular the spacious grounds, gardens etc. I was disappointed with the quality of furniture on my balcony given the fact that I observed furniture of quality in similar suites where I was based, furniture on my balcony was that of a 1 or 2 star Hotel, I have already indicated my disaproval on the personal questionaire at the Hotel, I would at some stage like a report directly to me regarding the unsuitable furniture on my balcony, I stayed in 7 Oasis Parc at the Hotel.
The variety of facilities, the high standard, the staff, and the wonderful gardens. Beds could be better. Do not like two singles pushed together to make a double or king. Need better beds.
Everything was brilliant,with the exception of below. Food was not up to a good standard, but was not overpriced.
Fantastisk flot udsigt. Rolig beliggenhed.
Hotellet har en meget smuk udsigt over havet. Der er roligt, selv om det er et rimeligt stort hotel. Værelset var godt og rent. Morgenbuffen var god og for en hver smag.
Hotellet ligger meget smukt. Personalet er søde og hjælpsomme. Vi kommer meget gerne igen Der mangler lidt småting som f.eks. badekåber og strygejern, men ellers er komfort og service i top.
Meget imødekommende og professionelle medarbejdere. Gode restauranter med flot udsigt. Gode aktivitetsmuligheder for større børn. Parkeringskælderen - meget svær at komme ned i/op af.
nice clean rooms and very helpful staff breakfast was a bit poor and i think staff need to be trained in order to deliver quality service and good food.
Totally suitable for our needs- Nothing to fault-Everyone was wonderful and eberything hit the spot. Nothing- We will definitely return.
Ultra Modern and stylish
noise from rooms upstairs or alongside, high heels on stone floor.
Staff and overall eperience excellent.
The hotel had only been open a few weeks so everything was clean bright and very modern. Breakfast good. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A little chaotic at reception as obviously having problems with computer system and reservations although I suspect only teething problems
The check in staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was splendid. The hotel was spotless. None
The staff were outstanding, especially Carlos at the front desk. Nothing was too much trouble. Tea/coffee facilities should be in all rooms.
Very modern hotel in agood location near to the beach, shops a good selection of restaurants and public transport links. As a single traveller I found it rather impersonal. I chose the hotel as I am very familiar with the area expecting a quiet location. One night I was kept awake until 2.30 am by a nearby (but not adjacent) karaoke bar which is a considerable problem for the whole area.
quiet comfort, ample and well-cooked breakfast, interesting modern design, professional staff
The confort and the location. The level too high of the music in the central lobby and the hours of beggining and ending, very early in the morning (7.00 am !!!) and very late in the evening (11.00 pm)
Fantastisk god og rolig beliggenhed. Meget velholdt. God plads, skøn placering lige ud til poolområdet og med havudsigt. Desuden var vejret helt fabelagtig godt. Hovedpuderne var ikke gode, - minder om en pose skumgummifyld i et pudevår, - men ellers var ALT som det skulle være.
the hotel, the staff, the beech and every thing connected to the hotel was fantastic this is a 5 star hotel make no mistake about it,i would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family if i visit portugal again i will be making another booking at the grande real santa eulalia
Breakfast Spa and Staff.
Relaxing by the pool, having bbq lunches, strolling into Albufeira. Bus transfer facilty was very convenient. Trip to Golf Academy was most enjoyable The restuarant menu in the evening was very limited and the Sunday buffet was very disappointing when one was used to the buffet at lunch time. The food generally was of very high standard so this was disappointing
Hotel is very nice because of his separte T0,T1,T2 suites. These suites has separte living room and bedroom and a kitchen. The total cleaning is done for you
A wonderful oceanfront property full of amenities and lots of charm. I went in the off season so it was magical and relaxing. Good restaurants, good food, complete gym and spa and an amazing beach at the doorstep. Really enjoyed my stay. The lack of a tea kettle in the room
Beach front, very quiet, beautiful gardens. Excellent swimming pool with warm water. Near Santa Eulália center. For a 5-star hotel, the carpet is a bit used and with some stains. Sauna and turkish bath are not included in room rate.
The staff were really helpful and polite, especially in reception and in the restaurants. The food in the buffet was ok and we liked the choice of the other restaurants. The beach was great. The room that was advertised as resort view was of the car park. The overall standard was not that of a 5 Star hotel - just a 4 star. The Kids club was basic. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and you had to pay for sun beds
Friendliness of the staff, faclilities good, location good Beds were not 5 star standard ( they were rather hard )
My 18 year old daughter and myself returned for a 2nd time in September. We love the hotel, particularly the beach side location. The food is very enjoyable. The pool areas clean and beautifully appointed. The breakfast selection is varied and fresh, nearby snackbars offer a selection of food whilst enjoying the sea view Although expensive, we always feel relaxed and refreshed after our short stays.
This hotel is everything you could wish for on a relaxing holiday. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, the location magnificent, I will be telling all my friends
Surroundings, Club Atlantico, Restaurant, closeness of beach to eating places Should have been water in room for our arrival
Det var en dejlig beliggenhed lige ud til vandet og med en skøn terrasse, hvor man kunne sidde og spise. Ja,, at de ikke tilbyder en enlig rejsende, som betaler en høj, individuel pris (ikke gruppe) et værelse med udsigt til en mur, men til hav eller et pænt landskab. Dette sidste fik jeg da også efter at have sagt min mening om den sag. (Jeg har da heldigvis heller aldrig oplevet andet end at få et dobbeltværelse med en pæn udsigt på de gode hoteller, jeg har holdt ferie på.)
Venlig modtagelse, venlig og smilende dame i morgenmadsrestauranten. Hjælpsomt personale som ved hvordan "kræsne" gæster skal tumles. Gode omgivelser og ikke overrendt, men det var jo også medio november. Det fandtes lidt pudsigt med de niveauspring fra værelser til restaurant. men en yderdør var pga tiden blokeret.
har man bestilt med halvpension kan man frit vælge buffet eller al carte ( vælg frit for 35 Euro) samt selv bstemme om man vil spise på et af de 3 andre CS hoteller i nærheden. Faciliteterne på de andre hoteller kan også benyttes. Fik en lejlighed helt nede ved jorden, ville gerne have haft havudsigt som kun ses fra 3 sal op efter.
Selv om det var udenfor den store sæson, så var muligheden for strand og byliv - 4 km til Albufeira by - billigt med taxa, hvis man ikke vil køre. Morgenmaden lækker. Spa afdelingen virkede ikke så integreret og lukkede tidligt. Vi blev opgraderet til en suite - og det var super forkælelse til 2 dages overnatning og afslapning møblerne og interiøret er meget mørkt
pool and pool bar and restaurant bar service
Very nicely specced out hotel, lots of facilities like a gym; plenty of entertainment for bored holidaymakers in the evening. The wi-fi internet access was not available on the 5th floor - we couldn't get any coverage at all and had to sit in reception to send and receive e-mails, which was a nuisance and not really good enough for a hotel that advertises availability of wi-fi access throughout the hotel.
The staff was so courteous and the proximity to the beach was great. The breakfast was fantastic!! There was not one usable electric outlet in the room or bathroom with the exception of the one used for the TV. Also, there were only 2 bedside lights for the entire hotel room. It was quite dark at night. Our housekeeper also wanted to clean our room one day at about 5pm after we had already gotten back for the day. We have a child so this was not going to work for us. Subsequently, we ran out of toilet paper and tissue and our very small trash bins were overflowing. Also, our room was also not incredibly clean when we got there. The main elevator was broken for some time one of the days.
The hotel itself is very good, with a nice entertainment area (bar, restaurant, pool,...). It has a good location since it is outside Armação de Pera and very close to the beach. The staff really needs to be renewed since they have no experience at all and are not nice as they should. The rooms are not correctly cleaned day after day, specially the bathroom.
The staff are very friendly and helpful
Hotel breakfast excellent- facilities reasonable. Good location, if you enjoy walking! Very near the sea . The question of the hotel providing a two-tier price range is debatable. The question of the sea view (at extra cost needs defining specifically as our room had a view towards the sea, but the sea view was miles away!!!
nice clean comftable hotel having to pay to use gym etc
the staff were extremely nice, great selection at the breakfast buffet, nice rooms and nice surroundings. Huge Pool and loads of sun loungers. the beds were very uncomfortable and they didn't have the room we requested and paid for available. Also the hotel is situated in a very quiet area where there are no resteruants or entertainment.
Overall the service was excellent
The breakfast and the outside pool was excellent, staff were friendly. The room had 2 single beds pushed together to make a double. The Jacuzzi was cold and the turkish bath smelt of damp. The gyms facilities were also very basic
God beliggenhed, dejlige strande og spændende byer i området. Rigtig gode swimmingpools.
Flot beliggenhed, tæt ved en god strand. God standard.
Jeg var positivt overrasket over den rigtige flotte standard af vor lejlighed, blandt med helt nyt renoveret køkken, så det var en rigtig flot lejlighed, sammenlignet med andre lejligheder vi har haft på vore ferier. Det eneste jeg kunne ønske mig, var hyppigere skift af sengelinned og håndklæder, specielt håndklæder.
Cleanliness, size, location and pool area I was surprised that there were no waitresses at the pool area to take drink orders. The prices of drinks were also extremely expensive...
Great rooms plenty of room. Didn't like the fact that you have to pay to use the fitness facilities and indoor pool.
The pool, the place: is near beach and fun (strip), but quiet and has relaxing view. Just didn't use my car for 5 days because everything was very close. The studios and T1 apartments didn't have couple beds (the ones given to me), ar conditioned in studio where noisy but good in T1.
Good standard room, great views, good vfm
The facilities were excellent Additional payment for use of pool and gym
