This place is simply stunning. It really is paradise, and is a credit to each and every person who works there. They work so hard at keeping the place beautiful and it is a joy to witness them obviously taking such pride in it. I don't usually write reviews but the reason I'm writing this particular one is that I...

Nice hotel with a great breakfast. Hotel staff were excellent. Bit disappointed none of the outdoor pools were heated in April as it was a bit too cold for swimming in the sea. Beach was the highlight of our visit.The surrounding gardens are also well worth a walk around. Little disappointed the place didn't have more eco features such as...

The location is a dream. A secluded garden of several hectares - I am gratefull I do not have to do the weeding- with hotelrooms and apartments spread over it in earth colours... My children named it ´Flintstone village´ and it still goes by this name in our family. The views from the restaurant over the Atlantic Ocean is breathtaking....

An old world hotel/spa in an old world country. Very quaint rooms in traditional Portuguese style. Hotel center, w/ restaurants, pool & cool, opulent 80s' style bar/lounge situated on bluffs overlooking towering limestone out-croppings from the sea. Beach service & tours of sea caves right from the hotel beach. A fantastic spa. The locals are lovely, happy and kind people...

We stayed for 4 nights for a last break before the winter months. The hotel was really lovely with a great welcome and reception. Our room was a bit away from the main hotel but faced the thalasso pool. It was spacious and very clean with a small seating area but a lovely terrace to sit on. The restaurants were...

What a beautiful resort! The view of the ocean is so spectacular! The gardens are kept so wonderfully. We saw a white and black swan on the small pond they have in the middle of the gardens. They even have a kitchen garden that is used by the restaurant. We did not stay at the hotel so I cannot speak...

The hotel is very nice, the view is fantastic, there are 3 pools that are never crowded, the room is beautifuly decorated and comfy and the staff is excellent.

We recently stayed at this hotel for two weeks and I have to say we really enjoyed it. It provided what one would expect from a 5* star hotel, i.e. friendly staff, rooms and furniture in good shape, nice gardens and the like. There are a few things that really set this hotel apart from others: - from the restaurant,...

Very nice park like property with friendly and attentive staff. We only found a few weak spots, but they were very limited and would not prevent us from granting the top rating. Guests come from various countries, including Portugal. We only had bed and breakfast and took only two evening meals which we found nice but somewhat overpriced. The area...

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
