      This was our fourth visit in October half-term holiday. It has nice rooms and generally good facilities, breakfast is great. We kept coming back as the kids loved the heated outdoor pool and the atmosphere it created with families playing together. Unfortunately this year the heating was switched off so it was a bit desolate. Kids were disappointed. The hotel had clearly switched into winter mode and was focussed on the conferences that were taking place rather than holidaymakers. No outdoor heated pool, no ice cream for the kids at dinnertime, less choice in the restaurant, areas reserved for conference delegates etc. Also some of the smaller details that made a difference before have either disappeared or now incurr a charge. So I'm afraid we will be looking elsewhere this year.

      We stayed over Christmas week. Its pretty much boring for our kids as all the fun parks are closed during winter. We had half-board so our review... Dining: breakfast buffet = 4, dinner buffet = 3, atmosphere = 3, cleanliness = 5. Well-run buffet, clean but we felt like we were eating in a school canteen. Rooms: space = 5, bed = 4, daily room service = 4, cleanliness = 3. Good big comfortable room albeit slightly old, bed was softer than our preference, good daily room service where we had new towels (and looks like sheets too) everyday. Nice but unnecessary. Shower was not clean and had mould around the tiles. Over all facilities and location is good. Good supermarket down the road. But I felt we got lost as a number. The hotel can hold 1200 guests! Special thanks to Neuza and Richardo for making our stay more comfortable! If it weren't for them, I would have lowered my rating for this hotel.

      Christmas at VidaMar Algave

      The hotel is clean, modern and perfectly located near the beach and close to a golf course. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. We were here for Christmas 2019 and had excellent weather (high 60’s). Not all the facilities in the hotel were available as it was out of season. The indoor pool was very popular with families. The outdoor pools looked great but, unless you are an experienced open water swimmer, I would not recommend jumping in at that time of year. The staff were friendly and the food options were restricted to a large buffet for both breakfast and dinner. The quality of the food was great excellent and they provided a Christmas themed buffet on the 24th for no extra charge. There was plenty of parking and I’d recommend hiring a car as the hotel is a little isolated. Our extended family want to join us for Christmas there next year!
