During the renovation of the main house has done everything, in order to guarantee a fantastic and memorable stay. Stay in a Oasis-premium suite stayed in, very stylishly and nicely decorated, with fresh and modern design. In the evenings we enjoyed the various resort restaurants, attentive service and quality of the dishes. We especially want to praise the two chefs in the open kitchen grill restaurants aladdin, the really a very good job. Despite all i would like to criticise an innovation praise: the new Oasis-several of the park pool in brochures often pictured covered couches with luxurious mattress cover ..., now may be the only occupied, if you for the price of 175 Euro a bottle of champagne and canapes consumed 4 bottles of mineral water included. During our entire stay, no beach chairs and the offer was not accepted this. Other than that, we were very pleased and will definately return soon. read hotel review

Great resort - especially for families; really everyone which! No entertainment - but a very sophisticated decor with a clear requirement to upscale guests. As a result, also the prices - under 100 Euro is a dinner for 2 with drinks not included; and this is the lower end (thus not the 2 star restaurant on the premises meant). But whoever took holiday here, the not look on the money. One of the greatest oases of europe. Respect for the entrepreneurial idea - the area is so large and varied, that there is a huge maintenance needs and get you! ... Therefore it is already inexpensive in the genuine sense of the word. All the staff was very nice and accomodating - compliment! Gladly again and highly recommended. read hotel review

This is a lovely hotel with the most beautiful gardens.It is huge set in 40 acres of landscaped greenery that is kept immaculately by the gardeners. It is the staff that make this place special,whether it is the housekeeping team keeping my room tidy,or Samuel and Joao bringing a cool drink in the early evening. The hospitality team led by Jolita and Francesco and backed up by the potentially high flying Imke are utterly brilliant whether it means going shopping or booking taxis and restaurants they get it done!

    The hotel is located in the middle of the Algarve. Around the ugly achievements of the mass tourism and unfortunately also the consequences of the crisis shows to see. Much is empty or is only 1-2 months in a year filled. Sad and terrible to look at. Directly from the hotel but not to see. ' Eigener' small beach below a cliff. Some restaurants medium quality (it was much cheaper than in the hotel) are within a 10-minute drive away (for example, porches). Supermarket 5 minutes (by car) away. All destinations from golf to nature/attractions are easily accessible by car in 15 to 40 minutes distance, Faro-airport is about 45-50 minutes away.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    Several restaurants, from which allegedly 3 closed due to renovations were. With a capacity of rd. 25-30% there are but rather different reasons have been. Once the main restaurant, the dishes were good, but quite expensive! Bar (outdoor and indoor) is ok however also nothing more.

  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    Small swimming pool (inside and outside); since few guests were there was fairly quiet. There is chairs and sunscreens, whether these difficulties are, we do not believe, but know... There are tennis courts and a nice and quite unique miniature golf course. In addition expensive spa, which we didn't use.

  • Service
    6.0

    Everything staff is friendly to very friendly. English almost all (maid only conditionally), some even good german. Rooms are thoroughly cleaned, evening turn down service and cleaning (bathroom, trash cans etc.). Complaints are not necessarily prompt-worked. Helpfulness is high, a question-and already someone helps. Also seemed everything was really and not fake. A lot of time at the welcome us uses, very nice and personal.

  • Room
    5.0

    Our room was in the main building, thankfully far from the entrance and the bar and therefore quiet. Very beautiful view into the garden. Even these standard rooms with balcony, large room on two levels and bathroom were absolutely appropriate and nice. Small wear and tear on the furniture, but still in order. Lots of closet space, firm, wide beds (unfortunately pushed together twins) and plenty of space. Bathroom is ok, but needs a upgrade experience. Above all, there is only a shower in the bath tub, which for older people a problem is, there is always everything under water. Leads to deduction. Balcony was quite big and two people can easily sit there.

  • Food and Drink
    AN EXTRAORDINARY DINING EXPERIENCE Deliciously diverse, the dining experience at VILA VITA Parc is a gastronomic adventure that makes the resort a magnet for gourmets from all continents. With choices that range from elegantly served haute cuisine to the sweet simplicity of the Algarve’s rustic cooking, the resort offers a wide selection of restaurants and bars, each with distinctive individual styling and ambience. VILA VITA’s own country wine estate and farm supplies fine vintages and freshly harvested organic produce, and an impressive on-site wine cellar stocks some 11,000 bottles. The Ocean is VILA VITA Parc’s signature restaurant, serving freshly caught seafood with inimitable flair, its excellence marked by a Michelin star awarded in November 2009 and the second Michelin star awarded in November 2011. Austrian-born Chef Hans Neuner is the genius in the kitchen, where the focus is on the catch of the day from nearby Sagres. Signature dishes include a filet of red mullet served with “perceves” (goose barnacles) and fennel jelly; and tail of langoustine topped with caramelised turnip on a classic French combination of pressed veal face in black truffle sauce. A team of four sous-chefs rounds out the talent in the kitchen, and service is charmingly discreet by the ultra-professional front-of-house staff. The elegant dining room leads out to a terrace and winter garden set just back from a cliff top, offering breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Subtle changes have added exquisite tabletop details, including elegant Italian cutlery from Sambonet and stylish new table service. Diners are presented with an intriguing selection of amuse-bouches on seating. Two tasting menus come with optional wine and Champagne selections paired with each dish. Breads are home made, produce is organically grown at the resort’s own farm, and cheese selections include specialties of the region, like the buttery Borba cheese from the Alentejo. Desserts are enchanting, with unexpected combinations like strawberries and rhubarb with a gratin of pistachio sabayon. Dinner ends with a flourish, with a delicate selection of petits fours. On any day, this might include a dozen or so variations of chocolate truffles, tiny cakes and fruit tartlets, and slates of dark and milk chocolate—opulently presented on a silver and wood Christofle trolley. Bela Vita, located in the Main Building, is an à-la-carte restaurant serving international cuisine with a wide range of daily specials. Guests may be seated on the large outdoor terrace. Adega is a Portuguese restaurant with traditional rustic décor. Specialties of the region, including tapas and grilled dishes, are enjoyed on a large summer terrace with a view of the swan lake. The Whale is a Mediterranean restaurant serving delicious seafood, pizzas and salads, overlooking the Pool Bar and the ocean. Aladin Grill & Lounge Bar is an elegant grill room with an open kitchen and Moorish ambience. Specialties here are meat and fish from the grill. Atlântico offers a charming terrace looking out at the Atlantic, perfect for a tranquil breakfast in summer months. In the evening, it offers a Mediterranean cuisine with a French and Portuguese flair. Arte Náutica is a beach restaurant with a large terrace, located less than two miles from VILA VITA Parc at the neighbouring town of Armação de Pêra. Access is by complimentary shuttle service on a regular basis during the summer. This venue offers a selection of fresh fish straight from the ocean, plus grilled meats, salads and snacks. Deutscher Biergarten, at the nearby village of Porches, is an authentic Bavarian beer garden offering traditional specialties including Paulaner beer, sausages, “schnitzel”, “herring”, pretzels and “Apfelstrudel”. All meats originate from the Herdade dos Grous and are prepared in VILA VITA Parc´s own butchery. Oasis Bar is the hotel bar and a favourite rendezvous for guests, perfect for coffee in the morning, tea and cake in the afternoon, drinks in the evening. The ambience is elegant, and a pretty terrace looks out at the gardens. Aladin Bar offers live entertainment and dancing on disco evenings. Pool Bar is directly next to the swimming pools, close to the beach access, and primarily serves the area where the sunbathing lawns and swimming pools are located. Varieties of ice cream, pizzas and snacks, and freshly squeezed juices and milkshakes are prepared here. Delfim Bar, a favourite with athletes and fitness buffs, is located in the Delfim Health Club next to the covered swimming pool. Specialties here include a large selection of freshly squeezed juices and healthful vitamin-rich drinks. Tea, coffee and cake are offered during the day, plus small snacks and sandwiches. Cave de Vinhos, VILA VITA Parc’s magnificent wine cellar, stocks more than 11,000 bottles of fine vintages, including spectacular reds from Herdade dos Grous, the resort’s own wine estate and farm located in the Alentejo. The drive to this inviting retreat takes about 80 minutes. A visit here can include lunch in the winery’s on-site dining room. Café Bica, at the Piazzeta, features a bistro decoration with wood panels and typical hand-painted tiles, and lounge area on a beautiful terrace overlooking the swan lake. A selection of local pastries, cakes, paninis, sandwiches, coffees, organic teas and cocktails are on offer throughout the day. Room Service is available ’round the clock, offering an innovative menu of international fare and daily specials. Dining aboard the resort’s 72-foot VILA VITA yacht is a thrilling option, with a delicious Portuguese version of bouillabaisse personally prepared by the captain. Cooking classes can be arranged at the resort and teach guests the art of cataplana, the Algarvian culinary style named for the copper pot used to cook shellfish and pork with handfuls of aromatic herbs. At VILA VITA Parc, these are picked straight from the on-site herb garden.
