Reviewed 12 April 2012

We have just returned from a 7 day stay at the Dom Pedro Marina hotel and we really enjoyed it. I had read all the good reviews, so was looking forward to the experience. I wasn't disappointed.
The reception and lounge areas are so welcoming and comfortable and, most importantly, immaculately clean. These lead to the pool and gardens, a most attractive setting for soaking up the sun and enjoying drinks from the bar.
The dining room overlooks the pool. We had breakfast there, which was plentiful and there was a good variety of hot and cold food. The cups are rather small and teapots would be useful, but that is a minor criticism.
Our bedroom was on the fourth floor and, although we had a view of the marina if we looked to the left, there was no sun on this side of the building. The beds were comfortable, the room was a good size, as was the bathroom. The maid came in every day to make the beds, clean the bathroom and change the towels.
The hotel is in a superb position, two minutes away from the marina where you will find a vast array of good quality, spotlessly clean restaurants and bars. Shop around, because the prices do vary and look out for special deals.
Don't ignore the people handing out the leaflets for the restaurants on the back streets. We had the best meals there and they were cheaper. Braganza Mar and O Colonial are worth a visit. Tip: some places give you bread, olives etc free of charge as a starter but some will charge between 3 and 7 euros for the privilege, so beware.
Take a 15 minute walk to the Old Village which is actually a very pretty collection of villas and appartments near the golf clubs. It will remind you of Portmeirion.
We were in Vilamoura over the Easter holidays, so it was quite busy with the influx of locals and the boat show but when they left, the place was very quiet.
The hotel was also very quiet, so we had a most peaceful time. I should imagine it would be a different experience in high season, however.
There is a lovely beach on the doorstep. The one at Falesia is superb and within easy walking distance. It has toilets, showers and a couple of bars.
Quarteira is a 10 minute stroll away and the small market on Wednesday mornings is worth a visit. So is the old town in Faro. Pop into the Tivoli to see what a 5 star looks like!
All in all, we couldn't fault the hotel or the resort.

Just come back from Dom Pedro Marina, Vilamoura. Loved the hotel very friendly clean and welcoming Would go back, its right on the marina, within 5 mins to the beach. Spoilt for restaurants we liked Dom Miguels,Don Toro, O Vittoria, Braganca mar all lovely. Dont go to the welcome meeting unless you what to buy a timeshare. Sitting in the sun for more than two hours without a drink offered is no fun.
Having said that would go back next March love Vilamoura and the Hotel.

Room Tip: if you want the sun on your balcony you need the swimming pool side.

Well we were upgraded, due the request put in by our travel agent, so that was a good start. The reception staff have a good command of the English language and were very helpful. They have knowledge of the local area and activities to do.

The beach is literally 2 minutes walk and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. If you work through the town along the beach you can walk right to the end of the beach and look out into the sea, it's mysterious at night. You can hire bikes and go riding quite safely around Vilamoura and even end up at another beach and ride past beautiful orange plantations.
The hotel food is very nice- good breakfast buffet. If you order from the bar in your room it's cheaper to go and collect it.

The jacuzzi was great and you have a lovely view from the balcony.
The TV channels were interesting as there were quite a few American channels- which was good for me as I love American television.

All in all this was a great hotel in a great location.

The Dom Pedro Marina is a beautiful hotel with lovely views over the marina. We have stayed in the Presidential Suite a few times and always enjoy the experience. The hotel is absolutely spotlessly clean and well maintained. The beach is less than 100 metres and the marina (with its wide choice of restaurants and bars) is just across the road. The breakfast is excellent, great choice of hot and cold dishes and the staff in the restaurant and at the desk are very friendly and real professionals.

Room Tip: Try and get a room overlooking the pool and you will have the sun most of the time.
