Excellent 5* Hotel

Posted Jul 9, 2014
A very relaxing four day stay. The hotel is located just far enough away from the Marina to avoid the crowds / noise, but close enough (about 5 mins walk) if you want to get in amongst the night-life. The sandy beach just across the road is public but not overcrowded while we were there.

Great hotel with a location to match

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness and the location of the hotel.
Cons: The lifts are a nightmare, fortunately for us we didn't mind taking the stairs although our 10 year old son wasn't so keen.
Location: Beachfront location and within a 10 minute to the Marina where a host of restaurants and shops. Numerous golf courses within easy reach.
We were only here for 2 nights mores the pity because we loved it. From the minute of pulling into the free guest car park the staff were attentive, friendly and blest.t thre to please. Our room (junior suite) was fabulous, complete with sea views. The only negative would be that there was only one chair on the balcony so not ideal if wanting a night cap out there. We were busy both mornings out and about in the local area visiting friends etc so walked up onto the grass area between the pool and the beach upon our return in the afternoon still managing to grab ourselves some 'big boy' bean beds. I did notice that each morning from about 7.30 the towels would start to appear on the sunbeds around the pools so not sure at which time they were all reserved....thinking not too late. We didn't eat at the hotel at all, missing breakfast on our first morning because of a long lunch we knew we were having and then because it being to early before we left for the airport on our final morning so cannot comment on that. Overall we had a really enjoyable stay here and would definitely go back and recommend it to our friends.

Highly Recommended

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Very Clean, Staff helpful and in a good location.
Cons: Maybe a little more choice on the bar menu.
Location: Very convenient to the local town and Marina within walking distance. Across the road from the Casino for an excellent show and meal. Good
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Crowne Plaza Vilamoura. Facilities, staff and breakfast were excellent. Very convenient to everything. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect - Junior Suite Highly Recommended!

Posted Jul 6, 2014
We had another great stay at the Crowne Plaza. The Junior Suite is perfect as it gives us enough room for our 2 year old to play, and a separate sleeping area for him in the lounge area on the sofa. Stunning views over the pool and beach, spotlessly clean room and beautifully modern decor. The beds are ridiculously comfortable and well soundproofed, making sleep an absolute joy. Staff at reception and doormen extremely helpful and polite - nothing is ever too much trouble. Hotel is well located for beach, marina and a short walk to Quartiera. Booking a suite entitles you to have breakfast in the lovely seafront restaurant on the terrace (avoiding the other busy breakfast room) and one day's free use of the spa - well worth it! Love this hotel and can't wait to return!

Luxury on the Beach

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: The rooms, The staff, The location
Cons: The Fatboys could do with a refurbish.
Location: The Marina area where most of the restaurants and bars are is just a 10 minute walk, go a little further and you will find less costly options
I have stayed at this hotel three times over the last four years and if anything it gets better each time. This time along with my wife and son we took my mother who is 86. When we got to the rooms we found we had bath showers rather than the easy access walk in type which my mother needs. I went down to reception and explained the problem and within five minutes we had new rooms and our luggage beat us to them waiting for us when we entered. The only slight negative I can think of is that the drinks in the hotel were quite expensive but then so is the whole resort of Vilamoura.

Lovely hotel.

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Beautiful design. very clean.
Cons: Kettle without cups or any tea-making facilities. What's the point of that?
The hotel was beautiful. Still issues with people leaving towels on sunloungers by pool all day. Reception staff said if towels left more than 30 minutes they would be removed, didn't see any staff members doing this. We had a problem with an over-zealous chambermaid who threw out several items from our room including my son's memory card for his PS4 which was a real inconvenience & expense. Reception staff were very pleasant restaurant staff not so much!

Lovely Hotel close to beach

Posted Jun 19, 2014
Comfortable, spotless. and friendly staff. Only thing I could fault it would be the subbeds around the pool area it was the old cliche people putting towels on subbeds at 7am, people were just inconsiderate, but the hotel has a policy in place which does work.
