I’ve stayed at Viking so many times already and I used to love this hotel. The location has privileged views and the hotel is still fairly comfortable but this year I was a truly disappointed. It seems like the Pestana group has completely forgotten about this hotel. The décor is dated, the ceramic floor in certain floors was creaking and “unglued”, breakfast was reasonable but the quality of some of the food was questionable. My suite’s decor was from last century, as was the TV, the curtains and blackout had more holes in it than an Emmental cheese. A part of the lawn on the ground was yellow. This hotel could be so much better that what it is. Such a pity!!

I Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Pestana Viking. The location was ideal and so was the service at the hotel and not to mention, The location is very good and quiet, the rooms were spacious and we had a room overlooking the sea with a balcony. I managed to catch a bit of sunshine and plenty of vitamin D. Considering the weather in the UK and most of europe, I was actually surprised to catch some sunshine

The location of this hotel is good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself needs some money spending on it, it’s very rundown and grubby looking for a 4 star. Restaurant was closed at night and there was only one main dish and snacks for lunch, they said that was because of the all Covid situation but all the other restaurants were open, so its not a valid excuse. Its a "OK" hotel with a 5 star staff.

Not enough sun beds near the pool, huge lines at the breakfast at the entrance and coffee, noisy conditioner, no variety of food at lunch and very slow service. Perhaps this was driven by COVID measures partly, but still there’s space for improvement.
