Recent guest reviews

A lovely stay staff very helpful and friendly location very good lovely beach and close to old and new town with free shuttle service. Rooms clean and good variety of areas to sit out dun bathe swim and relax. A bit busy as there were lots of wedding parties which meant restaurant could be quite noisy.

We have been here at least 4 times before and it never fails to impress. Great staff...great facilities....fabulous food.....brilliant spa and the best apple mojitos I've ever had. There is also a hidden gem - the Santa eulalia restaurant which is by the beach. Amazing food....served in traditional Portuguese style or European...something for everyone. Open for dinner only but its worth it. Open to non hotel residents too(access from beach car park). Worth a visit!

beautiful and calm hotel area with many pools, not overcrowded, parking houses for rented cars for free. Free access to the beautiful beach. Short distance to Albufeira with a free bus ride from the hotel. Only the food at the evening buffet was not warm enough :( Still I can heartly recommend this hotel!

A lovely resort only 40 minutes away by car from the airport Faro. It has different appartment Units with two pools each-one for small children. My studio had a bedroom a livingroom and fully equipped kitchen . Breakfast was in the Main building about a Five Minute Walk from My studio. Breakfast was Continental with a variety of Bread, cheese, sausage, pastry and much more, an Own cook and Even Champagner. The grounds have different Restaurants and Bars, a spa and Access to the Beach. I was Herr at the beginning of September so Not man other guest were Here.I Enjoyed My Stay very much

2nd visit here, our first being in 2015. I would say the 5 star rating probably applies to the resort as a whole (which is beautiful) rather than the accomodation. We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment, which was fine, though a little tired. Did have part of a tile come off the wall in kitchen area. Housekeeping was excellent and any problems (like the dust which was clogging up fan in bathroom) were dealt with promptly. Breakfast buffet was ok, nothing special but plentiful. Restaurant always busy but staff seemed to cope well. Loved the pool areas and you could always get a sunbed. Only thing was the pool bar was closed and there was no explanation why. We did take advantage once of the shuttle bus into old town but taxis are cheap enough to get around. I recommend the Santa Eulalia restaurant for top quality seafood and fantastic ocean views. Reception staff were always helpful and, overall, think this is still a great resort.

We enjoyed our week in Grand Real Santa Eulalia. Everything was perfect but our room 214 Dodd not get any sun and it was not possible to sit on balcony. The pool area was v good and there was,plenty of room for everyone. The staff were amazing, very helpful and pleasant at all times. I also found them friendly . There was a huge variety for breakfast and the restaurant was sunny and bright.

Fantastic Hotel, Friendly Staff, Clean Rooms, Great Location, Perfect for a relaxing getaway. 20 minutes walk from the Strip, and about 40 to the old town. Therr is a free bus services provided by the hotel. It unfortunately is a first come first survived bases. There is two resturants just out side the hotel gates that are brilliant. I would recommend the Calzone in RM. The Indian Sizzler in the new town is an amazing Indian, the Prawn Puri is fantastic. Would recommend a Studio apartment for more value and peace.

I would have given this hotel a lower rating but I do think it's better than average and there's no 3 and a half stars so gave it 4. We loved the position of the hotel, direct access to the beach and about a 25 minute walk to the strip. We would have gladly upgraded to a sea view room but there was no availability. Breakfast was adequate, the cakes and pastry items were very good but the cooked breakfast items were pretty poor with bacon more like plastic soaked in oil and the fried eggs not done to order like we usually find in other hotels and everything was all a bit messy. Rooms and bathrooms are a good size with air conditioning working really well. TV wasn't working very well but you don't go on holiday to watch TV so it didn't bother us. Rooms were spotless clean. The area around the pool is very nice but there's no cushions for the loungers so not very comfortable and the water in the pool is freezing, I don't like the water to be too warm as it's not refreshing but it really was too cold. Also with the clients being mainly British the beach bar is always really busy, there was usually about 10 people waiting to be served and service was very slow, there needs to be at least another person serving people. Reception staff could be more friendly, they very rarely wished anyone a good morning or afternoon so maybe some staff training wouldn't go amiss. All in all I think this hotel could be really good with just a little more attention to detail. I don't know if we'd return.

This is our second time this year to the hotel and found it friendly and great value. It is a five star hotel and the food is to die for, every meal is fresh and tasty. The staff are great and make you feel more than welcome, we received a free bottle of wine and fruit on our return and the staff remembered the two boys so it felt nice.

Have stopped here many times over the last 10 years and still find the hotel to a high standard. Stopped bed and breakfast found breakfast very good with a varied selection of food, went to the Altantico cafe at lunch very prompt service, good food and excellent value for money. Ate in the restaurant Santa Eulalia in the evening very good food and great location to sit outside and dine while enjoying the views over the sea. Rooms very spacious, clean and tidy and great house keeping. Drinks prices are what you would expect for a 5 star hotel and would definitely recommend trying the cocktails as these are excellent. All the staff give a excellent service and are a credit to the hotel. We have already booked another holiday here again for next year
