    Fabulous

    Two words: great location. Proximity to major street of Albufeira and to the Bull arena is what makes this hotel valuable as there is no need to drive and park the car. The green area around the pool is also contributes to positive experience with this hotel.

    The room service could have been more active. At the beginning of our stay, the daily cleaning included only services as emptying the trash and sweeping the floor. After a verbal complaint to the management, the situation improved with bathroom cleaning, making beds, and washing the floor.

    Very good

    Great location, relaxed atmosphere

    No toaster, asked for one we were told it would be brought but wasn'T. Checkin was very late and cleaners were still there. Shower was broken. Prices have gone up alot but no increase in facilities, some money needs to be spent on room upgrades. Very few sun loungers, other people took our terrace furniture.

    Superb

    We picked the hotel as a stag do venue for 11 people and had 2 villas. It was the perfect venue for what we wanted, the villas we had were ideal and perfectly clean and the location is spot on. The grounds are fantastic and the pool is excellent. It has a lot of stags/hens and groups and can be noisy around the pool area, so avoid it if you want some peace and quite, but for us this just added to the atmosphere. Would I take the wife and kids, no, would I go back and stay as part of a group, most definately!!!

    Very good

    This resort is just on the main strip it is very well located. Our 3 bedroom villa was very spacious and suited our large family especially with grown up kids. Our eldest was 20. The older kids had a ball every night on the strip. The pool is huge with a diving board over 3.5 metres of water brilliant but you must be a good swimmer.

    It can get very noisy at nite. There can be groups of guys or girls on the beer creating a racket late at nite.

    Good

    It was very cosy, very spacious rooms loved staying there. Excellent location right on the strip. Pool was fantastic we all had great fun. That diving board is amazing! Loved the stay, will definitely be booking Vilanova for my next visit :)

    There was nowhere to get breakfast or dinner in the mornings or evenings so had to eat out most of the time. Did not see staff at all and had to ask for towels, toilet roll, etc.

    The "Villa with 3 bedrooms'' is actually a villa with 1 bedroom, a lounge (with 2 mobile, fold down beds) and an entrance hall (with two, hard sofas). The dirty, green pool wasn't great and neither was the ant infestation in the villa.

    None.

    The apartment that we arrived to was filthy, sheets covered in indistinguishable stains, got moved to different room which was cleaner. Thought everything was going well until the second night where we had to kill 9 cockroaches, absolutely disgusting!! Decided to leave at 4 in the morning on Sunday because we refused to sleep with bugs, met lots of other groups of people who all agree this resort is NOT acceptable! Would never, ever recommend this place to anyone at all. DO NOT STAY HERE.

    Ba and passport taken from the room. Room was not broken into and was locked. Staff are rude unhelpful and ignorant. They would not even say where the police station was!!!
