    At Vilalara hotel, you are in a real cocoon, far away from the busy world.

    A small detail : no coffee/tea maker in the room. Everything else was perfect.

    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.

    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.

    Amazing! We stayed for 5 nights for our honeymoon. The hotel is 5 star with the some of the best service, staff, and facilities we have ever experienced. The views and beach are breathtaking. The food and wine is of the highest quality- a bit expensive but well worth the splurge! After staying here my husband and I wonder why you would stay anywhere else in the Algarve.

    Great open gardens and lovely private beach

    The reception staff were very slow and unprofessional. The cleaning of the room was forgotten and we had to complain to get the room cleaned. Even after the so called clean the bins were still full. Each night we kept a glass of water next to the bed. The glasses were never cleaned for us so we had to do it ourselves. Shames as this in the service of a 5 star hotel or in fact any hotel.

    Service level and availability of staff as well overall lodging and spa services

  • Older travelers

    The resort is in a beautiful spot - with amazing views over the cliffs. Staff are extremely nice and helpful. A great spot to relax and chill out. Easy to get into town (5 euros by taxi or 40 min walk) for a wander and lots of choices of places to eat. Food at the hotel quite pricey but average for 5* hotel. Great breakfasts! Resort was full but did not feel busy at all -- except at lunch time. Lots of pools. Beach not very long or great for swimming but decent enough and lots of other beaches in driving distance. And three great pools at the hotel.

    The standard garden view rooms were nice enough but not fantastic and not much of a view. Our room was a little musty but we aired it out and seemed much better. And as above, food on the pricey side.
