    Superb

    Arrived in Vila Petra in late June 2011, really enjoyed our 11nights there. Staff very helpfull, rooms very clean, lovely poolside area. Very close to the strip. Only downside is you have to get a taxi to the old town(very nice restaurants there) but this only costs between €4.50-€5.00. Overall had a really relaxing holiday!

    We had full kitchen facilities which is great when you are travelling with children. Indoor pool was an added bonus when it got too hot to go outside. Temp was 32* and it was only June. Massage not to be missed downstairs in the Spa, Place is spotless. Free bus to beach and Shopping Centre. Pre book shuttle bus to and from Airport before you go. Staff during the day were very friendly and helpful. They cleared all unused towels from around the pool when a family complained they had no beds, about time somebody started the habit .All hotels should follow suit.

    We where kept awake every night with "young adults" next door (at least 15 if not more ) coming and going , drinking out on the patio and singing at the top of thier voices, drunken visitors banging our door (2am) and practically walking in. Party or door didn't stop before 5am. We were on the ground floor and in clear earshot of Reception but no one bothered to silence them.

    Superb

    The apartments are very spacious and clean. The pool area and gardens are well kept. Taxis to the old town cost €5 approx. There are restaurants within walking distance of the Vila Petra. Shop on site with fresh bread etc every day. Family friendly!

    Hard pillows!!

    Fabulous

    The staff were very efficient and the hotel was very clean.

    On arrival we had no pillows for the sofa bed. We went down to reception to be told that housekeeping leave at 5 so we couldn't have any for our first night. However, they did get the pillows to us the next day without us having to go and remind them.

    Fabulous

    The Apartment was very spacious and clean. We got clean towels and sheets every day. The kitchen was completely separate and had a window which was great. There was plenty of storage space for clothes, cases etc. The bed setees in the living room were big and comfortable. We did have one night when there was a lot of noise from the apartment next door, which went on for a few hours and kept us awake. We complained to reception the next day and they followed it up and it was ok after that.

    There was very little entertainment in the hotel. It would have been nice to stay in the hotel bar for an evening but it was too quiet.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The generous size of our two bedroom apartment, the facilities for children and babies, the children's pool, the helpfulness of the staff including the airport transfer with baby car seat that was booked for us on request.

    Really lovely aparthotel we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was a really good size overlooking the pool. Location is excellent. Pool is large with plenty of sunbathing areas. All the staff were very friendly & everywhere was spotless.

    Fabulous

    Very relaxed atmosphere. Brilliant little shop which was very cheap. Very well maintained, great cleaning staff. Dave very good behind the bar. Kiddies pool was ideal, pity no kids club

    We were on first floor, could hear the music down stairs each night. The playground area facilities got very hot during the day so could not be used.

    Exclusive

    Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We had a group of 16 lads away on a stag do and although we are a pretty well behaved group some hotels want to cause a problem. Not here. Great facilities right in the middle of everything. Reception efficient, bar and food a good standard and pool fantastic. Superb price for the four star rating. Well done. I would recommend this hotel to anyone but any lads going away, respect works both ways.

    No fault with the hotel at all but if you are going for nights out in Albufeira then make sure you have plenty of cash (Don't pay on cards anywhere), three of our group got stung.

    Fabulous

    Good location, close enough to walk to shops restaurants etc and beach but far enough away not to be affected by noise from the bars etc

    We booked a 2 bed appt however we were given two separate apartments with a connecting door. Also they were located in the darkest corner of the grounds at the back of the complex. We requested a change and got what we specifically booked but had to spend our 1st night in the 2 appts. The beds/bedding were very basic not really typical of 4* hotel.
