Went to celebrate my Birthday with 9 girlfriends and had a fantastic time, some of the girls were delayed checking in so we were all upgraded to Superior Rooms. The hotel is just off the main walk of the Marina which was good as we could actually leave the music behind in the bars when we went to bed. Breakfast was superb even the coffee. Lovely pool and bar with great sandwiches and various areas to sunbathe also just a quick step across a path to a beautiful beach.

This is a good hotel, with a short walk down steps to the beach. Pool and surrounding areas nicely resourced, pool bar served good snacks and drinks. Breakfast buffet was good, with fresh fruits, cereals, breads and cooked breakfast, but the gorgeous Portugese custard tarts nor the orange compot (= marmalade, essential for a Englishman) were not available everyday, which was a little disappointing. The Basilico restaurant served a wide range of good Italian food, and they serve a themed gourmet buffet in the main restaurant every night. We tried the Brazilian evening; there was a good spread, but the quality of the meat courses was OK, but not great (excessive bone/gristle/fat), and the desserts looked wonderful but too sweet for our tastes. Never the less the price for 'all you can eat' was very good value. Rooms comfortable and clean. 4* rather than 5*; we think the PortoBay Cliff Bay Hotel, Madiera to be superior in many respects.

Stayed here for a week and had a great time, note this is not a 5 star property more like a 4 but decent enough.
Breakfast was good lots of choice, room was quite outdated but sea views were amazing and space was great.
Staff were very helpful and I would stay here again. Location was great 2 mins from strip and lovely restaurants and beach clubs
Outdoor pool was going through maintenance and did cause bit of an issue for us but we used the other branches pools.

We stayed in the Anantara in an extremely quiet week at the start of May. Starting with the positives, it is newly refurbished throughout, with a great spa, large gym, very helpful and friendly staff, peaceful, has beautiful views and with a great buffet breakfast. It is right next to the Victoria golf course but otherwise not much else. The hotel is a 15 min journey from the marina/town by shuttle bus but it is worth going there (or, at lunch, the golf course opposite) to eat. The couple of negatives for us were the value for money of lunch, dinner and drinks, with prices materially higher than hotels/restaurants of a similar standard nearby. And charges for WiFi of €10-15 a day - annoying! Some of the facilities such as the kids club, adult pool and tennis court weren't yet open but looked like they should be pretty nice once finished.

Excellent value for money for a 4 star hotel. Great facilities, excellent friendly staff who were extremely helpful and polite at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. Pool towels are a nice touch. We had a deluxe room overlooking the pool which was a nice size and extremely clean. Pool does get busy and more sunbeds are needed. We did use cabs out of choice as went to the old town to eat which was about 5 mins drive. Strip & several restaurants very close by too. Small beach only 5 mins walk with nice beach bar. Main resort beach only a further 5 min walk & spent a great day there. Highly recommend and would definately stay again.

Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The room, service, food was excellent. Evening buffet rather expensive.
We had breakfast and everything was there!
We will definitely be going back.
Only one problem which was at Faro airport. Complete chaos when we arrived. We had a very long wait for both suitcase and transport. Nowhere outside to sit with no explanation. It turned out that a bus had broken doors and we had to wait for a replacement but we were only told after 2 hours waiting in the sun!
If we go again we may well hire a car instead of all the hanging about.
Journey back to the airport was ok.

the hotel has large appartments but didn't like the hen and stag parties that frequent this area fortunatley there wern't any staying here though the onsite bar was a bit rowdy,beach only 10min walk and bus stop just outside to old town which is much better to avoid the hen and stags.

A modern resort created in the 1970s, Vilamoura is famous for its marina and several championship golf courses. What it lacks in local character it makes up for in facilities as one of Europe’s largest leisure complexes, including most water sports. By night the marina is the lively hub with bars and eateries for all budgets, plus a casino and nightclubs. The adjacent beach of Praia da Falésia is recommended.
