Absolutely fabulous hotel!

Review by aoifem554 London, United Kingdom

We spent 12 nights in the Anantara and we are devastated to have left! What a beautiful hotel!

Highlights:

  • The staff really make this hotel. They are incredibly friendly, attentive, welcoming and good-humoured. This was visible across all staff members - from the breakfast staff, pool staff, valet and front desk...

In particular Jose at breakfast was super attentive - always so prompt with the cappuccinos and very warm and welcoming. Jose at the pool bar makes the best pornstar martinis and is always so friendly and good humoured! Kugic the valet was a gentlemen. The front desk were very helpful with any questions - they gave us some great restaurant tips.

  • The main pool area is stunning with a very relaxed vibe and a beautiful view of the Victoria golf course. There is a smaller adults pool which is quieter and also very relaxing.

  • The bed was huge and so comfortable. The rooms are well sound-proofed (I am a light sleeper and slept very well). Our room had a separate walk-in closet which meant we could fully unpack and had lots of space.

  • The breakfast buffet was extensive and excellent quality. We ate at Emo the fine dining restaurant and it was exceptional - well worth visiting. Pool snacks and room service also excellent quality.

  • The wider amenities at the hotel in general were very good , the spa was very relaxing and the hotel was very accommodating and prompt in arranging lessons and tee times for golf . In addition there is a tennis court on-site that is available for booking and it is well maintained with good equipment available.

  • In addition to the aforementioned restaurants the main lounge bar in the hotel is incredibly tranquil with a beautiful view of the golf course and pool area . It’s a great location to watch the sunset.

  • Hotel guests have free access to sun loungers at the Purobeach club in Vilamoura. Sun loungers are usually €40 per person per day so this is a huge perk!

  • There is a free shuttle to and from Vilamoura on demand which is very convenient.

We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and we would love to go back! Thanks to everyone for making it such an enjoyable holiday!!

We had a great stay!

Review by TheMacs47 Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

We had read some of the reviews from the busy summer months and therefore checked in for our 9 night stay with some trepidation. We needn’t have been concerned as we had a really great stay and didn’t experience the issues previously outlined.

The excellent service made this hotel, if there were any issues they were rectified without hesitation. The breakfast service was exceptionally well organised and social distancing well observed in the buffet (which is a proper buffet now)...

The hotel is a little way out of Vilamoura marina but the shuttle worked well, you do have to share with other family groups in close proximity so that is a small downside.

There were always free loungers around one of the pools but the prime spots were always with towels on early morning - slightly annoying really as they were empty for a while.

The rooms are very spacious, only criticism is that ours appears to have had some water damage as some of the furniture was warped, small things like this is why I haven’t given it 5/5.

We were a bit confused about the evening dining offering as we were led to believe on check-in that the Victoria restaurant was buffet in the evening, but we were dining in Emo on our final night and we could see the Victoria restaurant terrace and it was obvious it was al a carte. Which we had realised this sooner! The food in Edo is very good, but as it is fine dining you wouldn’t want to eat there each night. There are loads of options round the Marina or short Uber away so with a bit of research you can find lovely food.

The beach club was great, especially over the weekend, and we had no problem booking loungers. The food down there was decent as well. It usually costs 40-50Euros for a lounger so it is definitely worth taking advantage of this as part of the Anantara offering where they are complimentary. You also receive free water and fruit on arrival which is a nice touch.

I would definitely return to the hotel, its proximity to the Victoria golf club is what initially attracted us to it (they do free shuttles to other local golf clubs too) but overall the quality of food, service and accommodation meant we had an extremely enjoyable stay.

Has potential but ultimately a huge let down to what we expected

Review by Kunal P London, United Kingdom

What to say about this hotel? so much promise? some nice rooms and a nice setting of the course but that's about it. Where do I start. We are spoilt by the places we usually visit which are often the best hotels in the World...

Due to the travel restrictions and covid we thought we would come to the Algarve and chose this hotel instead of a villa for example or another property. Part of the decision was based on the Anantara brand name which we have heard if fairly strong whilst not experiences directly.

So from when we got in there was no bell service on entry, this is something basic we expect of a 5 star hotel. Disappointing to begin with. Check in was ok though there were a lot of people in the Lobby which is not the Hotels fault. What was bad though was that one room not ready to check into. We had to wait in the lobby area for a few hours, we were however given free drinks as recompense. The room itself was OK though we had a child bed in our room that despite a number of requests no one ever removed. The corridors need some new decor maybe? Breakfast, awful, cold most of the time and what made it worst was we were lining up everyday like school children. I felt embarrassed for the Hotel. The food itself was of a poor quality. We had Full Board included and trust me on this, don't do it, the lunch and dinner were the worst I have ever experienced in my life, truly abysmal food, shocking even. People were lining up in the kids queue to get pizza and chips as the food was so atrocious. Some staff were amazing though, I will say, especially bar staff however others were completely and utterly miserable like they were waiting on us for free? We had no room service until we asked for it on third day. This is in spite of the fact we asked for it on the phone and left our 'make up rooms' signs every morning and even during the day whilst we were out. Amenities were nice but they were not replenished unless we asked someone in the corridor whilst they were walking about to tending to another room.There was no water until we asked for it, again, most 5* hotels provide daily or at least one bottle of water for the room. Finally service when we asked for it was usually slow, whether it be us picking our car or getting some food. Not what we expected.

On the plus side the hotel has a wonderful indoor spa and pool which we made very good use of since it was very windy outside when went on some days and because had of England had decided upon this region which meant the pools were completely full of Brits abroad and their wild children.

A Shame. Do not recommend, please try another hotel.

Relaxing setting with lovely golf course views

Review by claire o Manchester, United Kingdom

I stayed at this lovely hotel in June when things started opening up in the world.

Really nice pool and views to the golf course, I would recommend you upgrading your room To a suite so you have space.

Breakfast was nice & service was good.

Really good location to vilamoura and the hotel ha a free Mercedes to take you in & out so a great base to go and explore the resort...

I’ve stayed at this hotel twice now I would say it’s more of a 4star plus but it’s very calm & relaxing.
