Recent guest reviews

Had a great 5 night stay here, close to the beach and Marina. The service is great and the reception organised a hire car at last minute for me. The breakfast was very good, highly recommend the omelettes, the ala carte restaurant was good, on night 3 I asked for something off the menu "peri peri chicken" the waiter said the chef would make it specially for me on the next day which he did and I didnt even need to mention it. The food, service is impeccable. The only slight downside is I asked for a sea view room which I got partial view from my room, however the rooms are nice and comfortable.

Just spent 3 nights at the crowne and have come away feeling unbelievably relaxed and ready to carry on working. The check in, service and rooms were all of the highest standard as were the facilities offered by the hotel. Excellent breakfast and restaurants, which weren't too expensive considering it's a 5 star hotel. The location is second to none, with easy access to a beautiful beach with in a 100m of the hotel. I spent a day in the spa when I checked out, as my flight was leaving in the evening, and at a cost of 11 euros for the day, thought it was excellent value, to feel refreshed and ready for the flight, in a beautiful and well equipped facility I would definitely return and recommend this hotel.

A lovely hotel with many rooms and if you're there in the summer months, full of people and buzzing with activity. The decor is unusual (cool white cavernous caves - I guess the idea is that you are protected from the heat outside) and the vibe is luxurious and relaxed. It was particularly nice to have drinks out on the terrace in the afternoon, chatting wth the lovely wait staff and taking in the holiday atmosphere. There was a great session of Zumba in the pool which was fun. The breakfast buffet was extensive with some lovely food. One fault though is that our room had a fan which was not enough to cool the room down. The rooms really need decent air con as they get very warm during the summer season.

I booked three rooms which were later cancelled. I received three cancellation emails after speaking with their representative. At a later date a one night no-show fee was on my credit card. The hotel states that one of the cancellation numbers was a duplicate that I didn't catch. My feeling was when you cancel three rooms and you get three cancellation emails that should suffice. Poor, unethical, shady, business practice.

Nothing great, nothing terrible... super convenient location. Breakfast included was perfect... pool area was fabulous... but for some reason pool isn't heated so every time getting in was like jumping into an ice bath. Chairs around the pool soooo comfortable, but need to get there really early to get one. Restaurant in hotel wasn't great... but didn't really matter since it was just a 10 minute walk to the marina. We'd stay again.

We have just returned from a 10 night stay. The hotel is lovely, nice big rooms, even with the extra bed for our 15 year old. Clean towels every day. Breakfast is excellent, lots of choice for everyone, we went in the quieter time about 8am. At last a hotel where you do not have to get up at stupid o clock to get a sun bed (unless you want one of the hard ones by the pool) lots available on the grass area until about lunchtime, and if not the pool guys will help you find one. Lovely big pool, did not feel crowded even in August, pool bar food and drink is expensive. Perfect location just across from the beach, and a short walk to the Marina, where we ate out every night. Friendly and helpful reception staff. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return next year.

A good, clean hotel situated close to the beach. They've got a lovely swimming pool and a kids pool which at the peak of heat was packed with families. Plenty of sun loungers and though some were waking up early to reserve loungers, the hotel don't let you do this before 8pm. Plenty of towels available and they've got pool attendants for when you want a drink or snack by the pool. The menu is limited and food is expensive (this is a 5 star hotel hotel and at time of writing the GBP is weak against the Euro). We had a few bits of confusion around dinner and splitting bills and sometimes others in our party had some requirements for the children which were either ignored or not accommodated but for us (without children) it was a perfectly good hotel. It gets very busy but it's close to the beach so you can always go to the sea I'd the pool is too crowded and there's plenty of places to sit in the shade there. Overall a good experience let down by a few small details. But definitely one of the best hotels in the area.

The crown plaza was absolutely wonderful. Everyone working there was very nice and helping and all of the staff spoke perfectly English. The breakfast buffet had something for everyone and delicious sweets go eat afterwards. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Stayed here using IHG vouchers so didn't actually pay. Make no mistake this is a really good hotel with very little to fault it. Pool area is great and rooms are fab Only ever stayed in the refurbished ones. Location pretty good a little further to walk to the Marina than some others but bang opposite the casino. Breakfast is adequate and usual hotel fare. It is hard to find any fault and would rate this as a good four star but not a five. Would not pay full price at circa £1100 per person for a week.

Having never visited Portugal before, we wanted a hotel with good recommendations and plumped for the Crowne Plaza which resulted in a wonderful holiday in a top-class lovely hotel, right on the beach and just half an hour by taxi transfer from Faro airport. Check-in was problem-free with lovely, welcoming reception staff. We arrived earlier than the stated check-in time but were informed our rooms were ready which was great. As we were only there for a week, we spent most of the time poolside. No issues at all getting sunbeds and umbrellas, with lovely pool staff who were attentive and readily able to help with anything. Nice poolside bar and Zumba in the mornings to work off the amazing hotel breakfast. Everything imaginable on offer and very enjoyable...set us up until dinner! The pool was mainly quiet in the afternoons with music played after 4pm. The double rooms we had were lovely, spotlessly clean, huge comfortable bed, great walk-in shower. Spent most evenings around the marina, just a 10 minute stroll from the hotel. Variety of restaurants to choose from serving a wide range of foods including Italian, Indian and Thai. The area is really busy from around 9pm but we were always able to get a table to eat. The hotel is a real family one with many guests obviously returning every year, and we will be one of them!
