What a holiday ðð»
What an amazing holiday, great hotel, great food, such friendly and hardworking staff, couldn't fault it at all, will definitely be going back to this hotel..Augusto in particular was such a welcoming member of staff.. Vilamoura is a must visit, beautiful place (only 17 euro in a taxi from the hotel).More
The best of quiet reflection
We went for a fortnight to riu Gaurana, we've been to riu hotels a few times so knew it would be good. Our room was clean and comfortable with a sea view as we'd emailed beforehand and requested one. The staff were all faultless and couldn't be more helpful. The management were everywhere, I'm sure they hardly go home! The food was good, with the normal buffet restaurant plus an Asian restaurant and the grill. Sometimes there were sessions where a chef would cook local specialities outdoors for guests to try and local cocktails to accompany it. That was really good. The entertainment team were fantastic, I would go as far as to say some of the best we've ever seen. Go on the rooftop tour of the hotel it's brilliant! Our rep was really good, from the area so familiar and very knowledgable. We had a walk down the beach to villamoura, it took about an hour and a half and the marina was good but rest of it a bit shabby. We then got a bus back. There are two beaches, the one we walked along plus a smaller fishing beach which we really liked with a few nice little shops on the way. We went on a safari 4x4 which was absolutely brilliant and would really recommend it. We also went on a dolphin encounter but sadly never saw a dolphin but was a nice boat trip but to be honest wouldn't try again. While we were there the race horse Quiet Reflection (our son has shares in her) had a race at haydock (hence the title), after too many the night before we txd him to put Â£100 win on her and luckily she romped it! We had to watch it afterwards on our iPad as it would seem betting on horses is illegal in Portugal. Would we go again - absolutely!More
Only stayed at this hotel for 4 night so was prefect for what we wanted, however would not want to stay for any longer as the Location was to quiet for us. Rooms spacious but a little dated but were cleaned to a high standard. Nice swimming pools and grounds but personally found the pools just that little bit to cold we stayed in April. Food a lot of choice and very good. Good selection of drinks including cocktails. Some of the best entertainment I have seen at a Riu Hotel. I would recommend this hotel but probably wouldn't go back myself due to the location. More
Very good hotel for holidays in Algarve
Very relaxed atmosphere, two nice pools, very kind staff, nice room and good all inclusive. Free parking facility. Very good location in a quiet place, about 15 minutes walking from Olhos de Ãgua (tradicional fishermen village). The best beach near the hotel is Praia da FalÃ©sia that can be reached in about 15 minutes through a wooden staircase.More
