Would not stay again

Villanova was not what we expected. We expected a bed to sleep in, not a mattress on the floor. We expected a garden view and we were given a view of the strip so there was no chance of sleeping with all the noise and music. There were people running up and down the corridors every night at 3/4am and shouting from one end to the other every so there was no chance of sleep. The people at reception were very rude and would be doing other things while we spoke to them so it was like they weren’t listening at all, on the day we came back we had a lovely woman who we spoke to, but nobody else was friendly. The only thing I’d say that was good about our stay in Vilanova was that we were close to the strip so we were able to go out and not have far to walk, however, it also meant we had all the noise and music from bars all night so this wasn’t always a positive. We paid for breakfast for the week we were there and had it on the first day but not again. For the money, we expected at least a cooked breakfast, but all we received was a butter croissant and a hard bread roll with a slice of ham and a slice of cheese, so we didn’t bother having it again, especially as it says breakfast is served until 11am but we got there at 10:50 and were told we should have got there earlier as they want the room cleared and everyone out by 11 which it does not say on the leaflet. Overall, our stay at Vilanova was not the best experience, and we certainly won’t be returning.

The best thing about my stay was...

The pool area

Vilanova Albufeira

I stayed at this resort for 9 nights in a bungalow. The bungalow like most of the resort was very dated. It was clean, towels and bedding changed regularly. I would not recommend the bungalow to people who have difficulty getting upstairs. The stairs were very narrow and step. However there were two beds in the lounge. The beds are very low and not suitable if you struggle getting of low bed. The kitchen is acceptable with plenty of hot water. Bathroom good with a low bath making it easy to get in and out. It has a good swimming pool with a bar close to the pool. Being winter it only opens on nice warm days. The Vilanova is in a good location with plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Albufeira is quiet hilly with the old town with in walking distance. Or you can catch the local road train into town. Albufeira covers a large area and has some Beautiful sandy beaches. The staff very friendly and helpful.

The best thing about my stay was...

The winter warm weather.

Great hotel

When I seen a lot of the reviews about this hotel I was very anxious about staying here. When we got to the hotel we had a great little room that accommodated the both of us, its situated at a great location and there is also a little supermarket right beside the hotel. I definitely would stay at this hotel again when I return to Albuferia.

The room was not very clean when we arrived, after three days we hadn't seen a cleaner I had to go and ask for clean towels .we had to buy cleaning materials for the bathroom it was filthy .The light light was hanging of the ceiling.The cleaners arrived the day before we came home they washed the bathroom and living room floors without even brushing them.The cleaners need to get a cleaning course just for the basics.It was totally disgusting never again .

The sunshine

Get what you paid for

Lovely complex. For the price you pay, you get what you paid for. If I was to return here I'd probably go for the Vila. Only wifi around the pool and in the reception area. Staff are friendly.
