    Fabulous 8.8 From 228 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Christmas at VidaMar Algave
    The hotel is clean, modern and perfectly located near the beach and close to a golf course. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. We were here for Christmas 2019 and had excellent weather (high 60’s). Not all the facilities in the hotel were available as it was out of season. The indoor pool was very popular with families. The outdoor pools looked great but, unless you are an experienced open water swimmer, I would not recommend jumping in at that time of year. The staff were friendly and the food options were restricted to a large buffet for both breakfast and dinner. The quality of the food was great excellent and they provided a Christmas themed buffet on the 24th for no extra charge. There was plenty of parking and I’d recommend hiring a car as the hotel is a little isolated. Our extended family want to join us for Christmas there next year!

    Family trip - 2nd stay
    Overall very good, clean, perfect pool and excellent beach. Food is pretty good and usually something for everyone. Can get busy but better than most family buffet dining. Good WiFi. Hotel has a feeling of space and feels more remote with the beach just a stroll away. beach is excellent and again with lots of space and no other hotels nearby. There are apartments near by overall a great spot. Have visited twice now and that says it all. Reception staff generally not as friendly as others but overall an excellent clean and reliable hotel. Small gym and excellent spa and indoor pool (for adults) outside Pool has a new Adult only area with superb beds, this area is very quiet.

    Very Good 8.0
    Nice but with a few minor complaints
    Very nice hotel, room very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was really good but the evening meal was very limited on choice. Drinks were expensive. We did have an issue with being ignored at the bar and had to return to our room for a drink which we had brought from the supermarket. I did complain to the manger he said he would look into it but we never had any comeback. There was a huge amount of Portuguese families and couples there and some we found to be very rude which was surprising as we have never encountered that before. One more negative was that our room was not cleaned and tea and coffee replenished so had to go without one morning. But overall a nice hotel with just a few hiccups.
