    Superb

    Wonderful surroundings, close enough to Vilamoura Marina (5 mins in a taxi) but far enough away to enjoy the quietness of the surrounding area and a refreshing breeze due to being situated on the hill. Garden Villa's are wonderful, plenty of space and extremely clean. Fabulous breakfasts and lovely staff.

    Pool area could have been cleaned a little more comprehensively at the end of each day, however, we were there during the school holidays resulting in the pool side being extremely busy.

    Exclusive

    Just about everyting, but especially the 'extra' touches and attention to detail such as 1. a birthday cake and sparkiling wine provided (as a surprise) to one of our party on his birthday and 2. the provision of a breakfast picnic bag on day of departure because we were missing breakfast. Also, the staff were excellent in every respect

    The hotel is a €9/10 taxi ride from the main night life and shopping in the Marina at Villamoura; though this is not necessarily a bad thing

    Very good

    I specially liked the lobby and other common parts of the hotel. Lots of space and a nice decoration and landscape.

    My room was not big (in opposition to the bathroom which was huge).The dinner buffet is a little too expensive.

    Fabulous

    For poolside relaxation this hotel is ideal. However although a curtesy bus is laid on the location is out of the main marina/beach area.

    This was the second time we had stayed at this hotel following a very pleasant stay in August 2010. Since then the hotel has changed ownership. It's still a nice place to stay - very relaxing - no hassle finding a sunbed around the pool - very helpful staff etc. Would recommend to anyone.

    Some things need refurbishing eg the dining room furniture upholstery which we thought was looking a bit worn and shabby last year. Pestana need to increase the frequency of the shuttle bus to and from Vilamoura. There certainly needs to be some sort of service in the evening. You might also benefit from providing an electric vehicle (golf buggy) shuttle service to Oscars/Supermarket/Bank for a nominal fee - it's a leisurely 25 minute walk and people do like a change of scenery. Our main complaint would be that our hotel room wasn't cleaned on the day before we left. We returned to our room at 3.30pm and nothing had been done. We made the bed ourselves and replaced our towels etc. We did complain to the reception staff who were most apologetic.

    Fabulous

    loved the rooms large cosy bed and huge bathroom. great comfort.

    the only drawback is that it costs ten euro each way in and out of marina, too far to walk. no resturants near by.oh and no spa either.

    Good

    We received a lot of useful information from the reception staff on surroundings and restaurant tips. The room was comfortable and had a nice balcony with a view to the green/ trees.

    On 3 different occasions, we had to request that the room was cleaned and tidied up because it had not been made up, or the bed sheets had not been changed (although requested) or the room had not been cleaned properly before. This is not acceptable in a 5-star hotel.

    Superb

    The bed in our room was huge and so comfortable and the room we had was lovely ans spacious bathroom lovely and roomy.we got new clean towels at pool every day . brilliant breakfast buffet offered everything from hot to cold and very wide selection keeps to going till dinner. The hotel offers a free shuttle service twice a day to mirana which costs between 6 and 7 euro by taxi. On our last nite we got champange and strawberrys and chocolate as we were celebrating an anniversary. Second time stayin in this hotel and wood go again.

    The only thing I would fault was at the bar a bottle of still water is nearly 5 euro pure rip off... If your a drinker consider all inclusive or stock up in water at shop.

    Superb

    I love Vila Sol complex and this was the first time i stayed in the hotel, but i would certainly recommend it and will be going back. The hotel is in a great location, very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach of many great restaurants and attractions.

    The only negative feedback i have is, i think there should be tea/coffee facilities in the room. Also free wifi should be available.

    Fabulous

    This hotel is very good value and has some of the friendliest and helpful staff I have come across on the Canaries & Portugese 5* hotels circuit. Its main selling point is space and the really good use of that space, you never feel crowded out. Our room in the main block was spacious with a balcony overlooking a peaceful garden & pool, and receiving evening shade which was welcome as it gets pretty hot out there; bed & pillows very comfortable. The villas in the grounds appeared attractive if a little close together and seemed mainly populated by young families. Breakfast was excellent (big choice & outdoor terrace) as was dinner in the restaurant, bar in evening quiet and perhaps lacking in atmosphere. We went there for a long weekend to simply get away from the terrible weather in Northern Europe and enjoy the sun and this hotel absolutely delivered for us!

    Only cirtiicism would be the lack of an "adults only" area to relax in peace and quiet. The pool bar area and pools are dominated by young and inevitably noisy families even although this hotel is in a residential area some distance away from the beach, but you can find peaceful and pleasant open areas in the grounds overlooking the golf course from the villas to get away from it all
