We visited for the second time in 2016, this time treating our daughter and son in law. Rooms are all junior suites, very large and with double sized rain forest showers to die for. The extensive gardens are a delight and with five swimming pools to choose from, it never feels crowded. And then there's the kabana beds... The breakfast...

We received 5-star treatment at Vilalara and paid almost 1/3 less than the cost to stay at Vila Vita. The hotel staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We really...

Vilalara has a stunning location just above its own beach. The gardens are delightful and the view from the main restaurant is superb. We had a one bedroom suite which worked brilliantly for our family (children 13 & 10). The resort is big enough to feel that you have your own space but not so big that you have to...

This resort is set in beautifully maintained grounds with a low density development. There is private access to a section of beautiful Algarve cliff fringed beach, where there is an unlimited supply of sun beds and shades. The sand shelves steeply into the water and the wave drag makes it unsuitable for small children. The staff are very friendly and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
50 kilometres from Faro airport (FAO, ALgarve - Portugal), the Blue&Green Vilalara Thalassa Resort is a lakeside haven of style, comfort and exclusivity. As you gaze out and enjoy the setting you will realize the resort’s true essence and magic. This is a fascinating place where every detail has been designed for your wellbeing. Located on the Praia das Gaivotas cliff overlooking the sea, with a 12-hectare area consisting mainly of magnificent gardens, the Resort has 100 junior suites, 11 suites and 13 apartments. The low-rise architecture is marked by soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. It includes one restaurant of Portuguese cuisine and gourmet, low-calorie menus, and another with theme dinners and barbecues. It also features six outdoor pools of fresh and sea water and one of its main trademark images: the Thalassotherapy and Spa Center, the first in Portugal and one of the most respected in the world. soft lines and colours and appears to have been inspired by Gaudi. ... more   less
