My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights here from the 5th to the 9th Feb after getting a good deal through a travel website. Overall we had a pleasant stay however feel we'd like to help others in deciding whether they still want to book this hotel by leaving a detailed review.

We stayed at this hotel on a great value deal in depressing January.   It is a good hotel in a nice location  by the beach, but be aware that there is not much else around in the way of amenities and is surrounded by other hotels and apartments.  It was very quiet all around in

Dear beeza1, Thank you so much for staying with us at Vidamar Resorts Algarve and for providing us your valuable feedback. Even though there are another hotels and apartments in the vicinity of our Hotel, we are located right beside the Salgados nature reserve, a bird sanctuary and a protected wetland and the Salgados beach, one of the most valuable and appreciated stretches of sand in the Algarve. Overall a quiet area, but located just a 10 minute away drive from the city centre of Albufeira. We are deeply troubled by the approach made by one of our security guards and we are truly sorry. Any feedback of this nature is immediately escalated to our General Manager and the respective head of department so that no other guest faces the same experience. We hope to see you soon. Sunny regads, The Management

This hotel does not deserve to a be a 5*. It provides the minimum requirement, ie, the gym is in the basement and the size of my utility room, the spa is extra, the free pool is tiny for such a big hotel, having stayed in the winter a lot of amenities were shut, there was only

Dear Mrs. Christine M, Thank you for staying with us. It is with great regret that we read about your experience. Please rest assured that we have addressed all concerns directly with the respective heads of department and discussed every issue you have encountered during your stay. Our beach access is gated and locked to everyone who is not staying at the Resort to ensure our guests safety, but openable by sweeping the room key on the card reader, located just before before the gate. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We look forward to serving you better in the future. Sunny regards, The Management

You can walk to Armacoa de Pero which is the nearest smallish town along the walkways and beach in about 40 minutes if you don't stop to look at the birds on the lagoons. Albufeira is a few miles away. The free hotel shuttle bus leaves at 10:30 and returns at 3:30 each day and takes about 30 minutes. You have to book this on the day if you want one of the limited places but it wasn't used much when we were there so had no trouble getting a seat.

Around half hour by taxi, we had a coach transfer from the airport when we arrived took 2 hours so we had a taxi when leaving to go home much quicker.
