Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Returned from a great holiday during Oct half term to this hotel, 3HB Guarana. From the time of arrival to the time leaving the hotel, everything was perfect. Great food and drinks with plenty to choose from on every single meal. Fernanda was a very friendly face we saw every time we went for meals. The hotel and the rooms were clean all throughout. It was my son’s birthday and the team made his day extra special. Diago in reception had a small gift put in the room with a birthday message to my son and when dining at the Oriental Restaurant, Claudia made the day extra special by arranging small cakes and mocktails for him. In the evening Belen arranged for all to sing happy birthday to my son during the evening entertainment which made his day even special. Got to also mention the entertainment team, with special thanks to Danny in organising the games for us and Dani in keeping the kids entertained all throughout the stay. Dani even got us to take part in kids games which we thoroughly enjoyed. Two lovely beaches just a few minutes walk, so would highly recommend this hotel. Counting the days until we can go back there to have another great holiday. Thanks to the team who are working hard to maintain the standards and for being so friendly, caring and making sure everyone had the best holiday ever.

Stayed here in July as a family of four (two adults two kids 3 & 7) and we cannot fault the place. The hotel is so well kept & one of the cleanest we’ve stayed in. The restaurants are fantastic with something for everyone so yes somethings are repetitive but along side that there are new dishes every night. This was our first holiday abroad since 2018 for various reasons and has really reminded us how good going abroad can be. Do not go past this hotel 😃

Hotel was really clean, weather was fabulous for the end of October. Food was good and staff were friendly. I would have liked another bar being open in the evening that didn’t have the entertainment on as that was a bit basic. The musicians playing on the outside veranda we’re good though. All in all a really good experience.

First time in Portugal, Guarana was a terrific hotel. Although it was offseason the place was immaculate and the room spacious and comfortable. The staff were so helpful and always greeted you with a smile, a special shout out to Sandra in the Sports Bar, a truly wonderful hostess so kind and gracious.

First time to Portugal so a bit apprehensive. Nice hotel asked for a room in quite section which we got. Room nice in clean order, never actually say the maid. Food excellent, got to be on par with some of the 5 star hotels in Mexico. Not a 5 Star Hotel,by any means, Staff very pleasant and helpful. V. clean hotel in quite position, like how they try keep pools,kids and adults only. Good end of the week show by 3HB Team. Some bars closed due to end of season, but they need another bar adults only? Jet2 transfers way to long for 35 min. journey, book a taxi. Sightseeing bus outside a good buy, cheaper than uber. Would not like come here in height of season.

From the moment we got there which was past midnight as delayed 2 hours we were made to feel very welcome. TAMIRES checked us in and gave us all the information we would need for our stay She was a pure joy to of met certainly her customer service skills exceeded our expectations. Also on reception through the week we were helped with the same enthusiasm at any time of the day by VANESSA,BRIGADA and DIEGO. The hotel itself is immaculately clean ,the rooms spacious we had a pool and sea view. The maids cleaning up to a very high standard and very pleasant attitude they work extremely hard. The restaurants are amazing the choice and standard extensive something for everyone and served 16 hours a day all freshly prepared. CARLOSone of the waiters went out of his way to make sure you were happy. All of this complex is so clean , teenage entertainment good and a good balance of outside entertainment for all . We had an excellent holiday and that mostly was down to the unbelievable staff in all areas. Thank you

The hotel was spotless, cleaning staff do an excellent job, inside and out thank you. Food was good, main restaurant always busy and noisy. Dinner time variety was hit or miss. Good luck trying to get table in The Oriental or Mediterranean Restaurants book before you arrive. Pool was stone cold, the sunbeds were on top of each other you had no privacy from strangers and no space to access beds you had to either laugh your self onto them or crawl up from foot of bed not ideal. Large entertainment area, one bar and queues were awful hubby and I both unable to stand for long periods of time, bar staff very friendly but they have to work so hard to keep the queue flowing, for the size of the area another bar needs to be created. Would I return? no, due to Sunbeds as I didn't pay to go on holiday to lie beside strangers and queue for the bar was off putting.

This is a great FAMILY resort! We thought so much of it that we went back again after a few months which is really not something we normally do. We had 10 glorious days here in July and then a further 7 days in October. Of course, the weather wasn't as hot the second time but our kids (11 and 8 years old) actually preferred the mid 20's rather than the mid 30's in temperature. Just be aware that you might get some rain in October and the (outdoor) pool temperature will obviously be cooler. The hotel does everything it can to make your stay comfortable come rain or shine. The complex is large enough for guests to enjoy indoor activities as well as outdoor if necessary. The animation team really work hard to make sure that everyone (that wants to) has a good time and, for us, JC was exceptional. The kids were entertained throughout. I think during both visits, we only ever encountered one member of staff that was a bit grumpy and the rest were always smiling and attentive. The service staff were very welcoming and helpful and the maintenance/ cleaning staff were visible but non intrusive. You could tell that they all worked hard as the standard of cleanliness was high and any problems were quickly rectified when reported. The food and drinks available were all of good quality and varied so no complaints there. OK, actually the coffee could be better but I survived. The resort facilities had actually improved in the space of a few months and it was good to see that they are continually investing in it to keep the standards high. Examples of this are the new Sports Bar which opened and the additional selection of beers on tap. Our advice would be to keep an eye on prices and availability (particularly with Jet2) and when you see it at a price that suits you, snap it up. Personally, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
