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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Have just returned from Grande Real we have going for ten years. Another fantastic stay. Two negatives to note we had the breakfast everyone morning, I have to say the general quality and selection of the food as gone down. Also the male receptionist tall with glasses was very rude to my wife and father he is there a long time and his customer care skills need attention.

Hotel's Favourite
This has to be the BEST hotel we've ever stayed in! Everything from the lovely welcome when you arrive to the luxurious accommodation and first class customer service during your stay is exactly as it should be. The staff are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and we literally felt like we were wrapped up in cotton wool the while time that we were there. The half board basis was excellent, superb quality food and lots to choose from. Thank you .. our first time there and it'll most definitely not be our last!

Rooms starting to look slightly tired but still a good standard. Suite was very good size for families. First time we've had 2 bathrooms. 1 bottle of still mineral water per day. Nespresso machine with 4 free capsules, thereafter €10 per sleeve of 10. Bit disappointing to find hairs wrapper around the bath plug stopper that were preventing the bath from emptying. Very thin, ineffective toilet roll but very thick, effective black out curtains. Corridors leading to rooms are narrow and dark with no windows. By contrast the public spaces were large, airy and immaculate. There was only live music on Saturday night (a young couple playing guitar and singing popular music) but not other organised entertainment or sporting activities. Indoor pool €20 except 9-11 and 13:00-15:00 but full of kids. No problem for us but would annoy people without children. No lane swimming possible. No lifeguard. No depth indicator. Limited sun loungers. Food pricing for family of 4: Restaurant Atlantico: min. €80 food only. Kids menu €12 - €19. Real Bar: €70 food and one drink only. No kids menu. Desserts €7-8. Lunch. Wraps/sandwiches menu €12-15. Burger €20. On Valentine's Day staff put small chocolates on each pillow and a heart shaped balloon. Breakfast was amazing. Fresh fruit, cheese, meat, pastries (Portuguese custard tarts very good, croissants less so), hot breakfast buffet, fresh juices in decent sized glasses, prosecco, freshly cooked omelette to order. Very tasty honey granola. Coffee is brought to the table and there is also a basic coffee machine but we didn't see any tea. Rooms were too warm without air conditioning, even in February but our air conditioning was too loud to leave on all night.

So welcoming went back for my birthday with my fiancé. This time we went half board. Staff were fantastic, especially in the lobby and restaurant. Great beach, clean and welcoming room. Only gripe was the carpet in the corridor. It seems to replicate moving waves which after an evening out made me a little wobbly lol. The swimming pools were closed for refurbishment but not being a pool person they were not missed. We will be going back again this year.

Location is right onto Oura beach, hotel grounds are superb, staff friendly and the 2 restaurants nearest to the beach were very good and prices were reasonable. The only negative was that the room smelt a little musty, but may have been the time of year October.
