    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.

    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.

    Wonderful Resort
    It was an amazing holiday! We enjoyed very much in VidaMar Resort. Room was clean, good enough for 4 people. Nice View and wonderful for relaxation. 3 outdoors pools catered for grow up, kids and babies. A nice beach was just within a few minutes walk. Foods were delicious. Should return.

    100% relaxation
    It was great located, close to the beach and quiet location. We got upgraded to a sea view room. Rooms are massive and very comfy. The service was professional and friendly.

    Excellent, modern well run hotel.
    Hotel was exceptional, modern, clean and great staff and massive rooms, showers also were fantastic. 2 negatives, they give you 1 free bottle of water on the first night but there after is €3.5 for 75cl, surely they could give 1 bottle per day? Other negative is that it is not really walking distance to anywhere but saying that taxis are plenty and you never wait long so overall had a great stay and would go back.

    Nice hotel, check in is at 3pm not 24 hour as stated. Overall pretty good. Service isn't the best on the reception desk but everywhere else is ok. The food is decent but not much choice for younger children.

    Magical Christmas & New Year stay!
    Our first time in this hotel - truly amazing! We visit the Algarve on holiday every year but Christmas & New Year was magical. Brilliant location - amazing walks along the boardwalk, beaches and bird walk. All staff were so helpful, friendly and smart. Half board included our breakfast and dinner - food was delicious! Brilliant variety and a different theme for dinner every evening. Daily cleaning of the room which was great. Rooms were comfortable, warm, spacious - everything you can want. Christmas Eve dinner was fantastic - champagne reception, amazing dinner, entertainment and Santa! New Years Eve - another great event with a champagne reception, dinner, entertainment, fireworks! Definitely will be returning!
