Beautiful stay in Salgados
Hotel was stunning, pictures don’t do justice! Was given a ground floor room which wasnt ideal. Food was pretty decent but water should be included in the price also. Beach is a stone throw away which is ideal also. Will defo return in the summer when the pool bar is open.

Almost everything: The staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, the cleanliness of the restaurant, the cleaning of the room, the agressiveness of the staff, the over-charging of the accommodation, and it is very far and isolated. It is alo outdated and tatty!

8/10 Very good

VidaMar Located on SalgadoFaro, It is a breathtaking paradise.embracing the Atlantic with lots of Palmtrees. I definetly would like to visit in the near future again. Pros Big property,the Palm trees, Rooms have enough space for 3person wide and spacious.the pool is super big,walking trail to the beach makes a great experience etc.. The "Price Wise" is not very budget friendly,but not super expensive either.considering the facilities and services given I would say its Fair price. "The breakfast"is wonderful.The variety is huge my thanks to Brazilian staff( waiters and security guard) friendliest people ever. Cons Watch out for the bearded man in dark bluesuit on the reception.he is not friendly! Luri Silva, you need extra trainings to learn how to treat customers in positive way I wrote this here not because You did not upgrade Our rooms to pool side when the hotel was almost empty! I am writing this because I dont like negative energies around while I am on the vacation.Anyway thanks to Your colleagues they were super nice treated US in such a nice manners,especially the extremly nice lady who did our check out. If you have "Mobility issues" or dont' like walking this hotel is not for you. The things are spread and requires good walking distances to the golf course,the pool,and the beach. Half board option is not bad,but during the dinner at least "The Water" suppose to be served for free of charge! Also variety options for dinner can be improve.

4/10 Fair

NOT a 5* hotel!!
This is definitely NOT a 5* hotel. From the 70’s styled dingy lobby, rooms and corridors to the awful buffet breakfast restaurant, this hotel is a real let down. Having stayed in luxury hotels all over the world, whoever rated this hotel got it badly wrong. The swimming pool and nearby beach are the only decent things about this venue. The onsite Italian restaurant, PrimaDonna, was truly awful. Food not cooked fresh on-site, must have been frozen or shipped in pre-packaged. The constant noise and disturbance from almost daily weddings means little sleep if you go to bed before 12pm.
