    The tranquility of the setting/ the breakfast/ the lovely airy rooms/ the immaculate gardens

    The only "negative" comment I would make about Vilalara is that for a 5 star hotel , it should provide more TV channels. Not that we are in our bedroom often, but it should have BBC1 and at least 1 national French channel. All you had was BBC world and TV5.

    Wow...where do I begin! The resort was absolutely amazing! I wouldn't change a thing! The room was amazing and always clean. The resort was beautiful and the views are out of this world! The food was pricey but worth every penny, it was wonderful. If we return to Portugal, this is where we will be staying!

    One of the best hotels in the Algarve; beautiful gardens, stunning beach, friendly service, very nice rooms.

    The service at the beach bar is somewhat erratic.

    Superb

    The wonderful location; the excellent service; the dinners in the restaurants; the nice calm relaxing environment (with the exception of the last day due to the terrible noise created by two uncontrolled boys at the swimming pool; see below).

    1) If you want two know why I have indicated a "fair" note concerning the cleanness of the room, please look at the floor of the room when we stayed (room 9106). If it has been cleaned since then, it is ok, but I do not think so. The floor consisting of a mosaic of small piecies of stones was badly colorized at the bathtube and the shower. 2) On the last day of our stay (August 31), a French man arrived with two boys. The two boys spent all the time in the swimming pool shouting to each other terribly loudly, repeating: "tu es merde!" Tu es nulle!" "Ta geulle!" "Je te tue," etc. Nobody of your staff tried to calm they down. (Neither their father, of course, who once also shouted into his cell phone the same: "tu es merde;" tu es nulle;" tu ne m'interesse plus" probably to his ex wife; but at least not so loudly as his boys.) I tried telling them - no, not "ta geulle!" Or "shut up," but - "du calm!" After which I received a lot of congratulations from your normal guests around the pool. It is a pity that not your staff received those congratulations. Due to the apparent absence of rules againts such a terror, now I answer somewhat reluctantly by "yes" to the next question.

    We took our two kids - 8 and 5 - for a weekend holiday. It was my sons birthday. The hotel was fabulous. The service is amazing and the people in the restaurant knew our kids after the first day. Our kids loved the hotel and want to go back next year.

    This is the other algarve far away from confusion and from the hordes of tourists. Private access to the beach , 3 pools , the smile and hapiness from the staff and the other guests. The restaurant has a very good barbecue by the pools at fridays the prices are very reasonable. This hotel is so good that the owner and the millionaire Americo Amorim has a beach house in there. Absolutely fabulous.

    The only problem is that the hotel as a single restaurant option, so if you want to change a little you can go to the vila vita hotel walking just 100m, you dont need car, if you go to armacao de pera or albufeira you will miss the hotel very much ... Because its quite bad and confusion...

    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.
