“Perfect Location.”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

The Tivoli Arade, Portimao, Portugal.

This hotel has the most ideal location at the entrance to the river Arade with a marina on either side of the main hotel. The rooms are clean and the surroundings are well maintained. Food is excellent and breakfast in particular is 1st class with a huge choice, buffet style. I am delighted to promote the hotel but beware of the company Resorthoppa, the transfer company operating out of Faro airport. They specialise in failure! They take your money for transferring you to the hotel but do not collect you to take you back to the airport at the end of your holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the marina are quietier.

we have visited the hotel for 7 nights in late August - early September 2011. the place is very good, quiet, and clean. the room was closed to the hotel swimming pools, and the marina were yahts were parked. personnel was very helpfull and willing to bring comfort for turists, food was very good and overall it wass a very good experience. Hotel has its own parking places for cars and is very closed to the ocean beach (sand beach)-2-3 minutes walking. I recommend it to all turists looking for to relax and have a quality vacation.

Room Tip: maybe to ask for a marina/pool view

An excellent relaxing week in family, wonderful breakfast with fantastic views over river Arade and Ferragudo, the room is clean, the service is good and they are very friendly. The pool is calm, Praia da Rocha (beach and village) is 5 minutes walking. I recommend and hope to return soon.

Thus is an adequate hotel, which appears to over market itself. That doesn't make it bad, simply that one has raised expectations that aren't met.
The hotel talks about its experience team ( who are there to deliver more than just food/technology/service/whatever), yet whilst they are friendly, they are nothing out of the ordinary- beach towels have run out I was told - exceptional service would either make sure they didn't, or say 'they've run out, I will rush out and buy you one'.
A general, 'it has slide past its sell by date' pervades the hotel - best exemplified by the pool area outside my room which had one large broken umbrella there for the length of my stay, broken chairs, a lack of shade (umbrella stands but no umbrellas), weeds growing, a closed bar area and looked generally run down.
Rooms are a good size and functional ( though the drains occasionally smelt). Food in the restaurant is ok - though at breakfast no one offers to cook you an egg - it's either scrambled or hard boiled.
On a positive note, reception looks good, the soaps in your rooms are nice, and it's pretty inexpensive and generally clean. A not unpleasant functional hotel.

having visited praia da rocha for the last 23 years, having stayed at different hotels, i can say without doubt that tivoli marina is a great place to stay. we are a family of five and booked a master suite, plenty of room, roof terrace, balcony, air con, great maid service, we were overlooking the marina, so the view was great. when you arrive you are greeted by very helpful and professional staff, nothing seems to be a problem for them,breakfast is very good, plenty of fresh fruit, bacon, eggs,cold meats, yoghurts, pastrys, cereal,juice, good coffee etc, if you want to do lunch then the dockside is a fantastic place to eat, thats on the marina, also o farol on the boardwalk is also worth a visit, both do fantastic fish dishes, on average we were spending between 80 to 100 euros for us all, three courses with wine and coffee, so not bad at all so i cant wait till next year, oh by the way the beach is fantastic goes on forever, happy holidays.
