All round Lake Resort in Vilamoura is a great choice for a resort stay in central eastern Algarve. Modern and well equipped (though I think the resort will be updated and renovated in Winter 2021/2022). The layout of the resort is slightly unusual. We had a nice second floor room with balcony looking left to the marina, straight in front the pool and lagoon right to the sea and beach in the far distance Room very well soundproofed and despite location in front of the lagoon beach it was never noisy. Breakfast excellent and we ate 4-5 times at restaurants on site which were perfectly good including Mare Nostrum which is located on the lake Guest services staff were very helpful with tourism (we visited a local Quinta vineyard) and also some great restaurant recommendations in Quinta do Lago From the Lake Resort it’s a short walk to Vilamoura Marina and also to Falesia Beach on the open ocean We travelled all along the Algarve east to west (about 170km) from Vilamoura and drove to and from Lisbon in about 3 hours We booked Covid tests at the hotel for our return trip which was helpful The bar area was vaguely disappointing for such a high quality establishment - nothing wrong with it, just a bit bland and non-descript Staff were very good and maybe only one of few negatives would be very high price (overpriced) but we went during ultimate high season so maybe that’s the price. The Lake Resort deserves 5 stars for service, location, quality and all round good place to stay

This was our first overseas trip since the end of lockdown and my wife was very apprehensive and unsure about the holiday. We had seen The Lakes resort when visiting Vilamoura before and always fancied staying there. It did not disappoint in any way at all. The minute we arrived we were greeted by a porter who made us feel warmly welcome within 30 seconds. He assisted us with our bags and found our conservative hire car a parking place straight outside the hotel, something that many hotels may reserve for more expensive vehicles. We checked in and was assured to see that our vaccination certificates were checked to try and make the hotel as covid secure as possible. The check in staff were all smiling and checked us in earlier than stated. Our room was clean and very well decorated and appointed with a sea view and balcony. The room was cleaned every day with copious clean towels and other small but unexpected little touches. The breakfasts were magnificent with food to suit all and good quality. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiting staff and every request was greeted with a smile and a yes. There are 2 restaurants at the hotel and the food was well prepared and good quality. My wife was taken ill on one occasion soon after ordering but our meals were brought to our room with a smile once again. The little things make this hotel and as previous reviews have said the staff are wonderful. A lovely holiday was had as a result.

Writing this review while staying at the resort .. The room is spotlessly clean as is every area of the hotel .. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food at the pool bar is lovely but the drinks prices are so expensive, €8 for a very small glass of wine at a pool bar ?? Also think it would be nice for waiters to come around the pool area and take drinks orders occasionally .. We are here to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday and even though I emailed the hotel in advance to make them aware of this there has been no acknowledgment of this at all .. not even a card or an inexpensive sparkling wine in the room .. I find this very disappointing considering this is a 5 star hotel .. maybe we have been spoilt with our experience of Dubai hotels .. Apart from this I would recommend this hotel, the beds are very comfortable and it’s quiet and relaxing ..

Four of us have had a very good week at this hotel in early September. Clean, friendly, very good service, excellent pools and restaurants. Covid rules followed strictly but not restrictive. Breakfast are excellent, pool bar very good for lunch and the on-site restaurant, particularly the floating fish restaurant is very good. It isn’t cheap mind, with drinks costing more than the bars in the marina, but you are staying in a five star hotel. We would like to recognise Vaniya (hope I have spelt her name correctly) as she was excellent from the word go, as a restaurant floor manager. Always with a welcome smile and time for a quick chat. She is excellent. Great location, just a ten min walk to either the beach or the marina. Sand surrounded pool is very good and ideal for swimming ! We will be returning !

There is not ONE thing that I would change about this little oasis - usually when you go to a hotel in large grounds and the facilities of this one, it quite some way from the town or other bars and restaurants - here its all within a 5 minute walk! As well as near to a fantastic beach with blue water and sand not pebbles! The staff are so helpful, I usually email before coming to ask for the same room - always done. The lunches at the pool bar varied, and the cocktails are fabulous! What more do you need!
