Vila Vita is amazing, we had a wonderful experience. You've seen the photos, it's as beautiful as it looks: amenities, pools, beach, restaurants, rooms, grounds- all beautiful. The service was equally impressive, they are knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We felt they were genuinely interested in helping us have the best experience. The resort never feels crowded or rushed, it's a premium experience with lots of things things to do. The restaurant offerings are wonderful, from breakfast on the terrance to Ocean their 2-star Michelin restaurant, there is something for everyone. We ate at almost all of the restaurants including the off-premise beach club (which is a great additional offering and provides an additional beach experience with chairs & activities) and even had a glass of wine in their beautiful wine cave. Ocean was the highlight, it's a truly world-class dining experience that we will remember for a lifetime. Our 6 year old daughter had an amazing experience, the resort does a great job offering family-friendly amenities but also private areas for adults without children. She used the kids club, loved the mini golf and play area, and enjoyed eating gelato at the swim up bar. We also had childcare one evening while we dined late, the staff was amazing. The spa has an upcoming renovation which will bring it up to current offerings and design standards. The resort has done a wonderful job evolving their food and beverage offerings (very cool bar and lounge areas) and the design of the hotel to maintain the luxury standards they've established. This was our first visit to the Algarve region which exceeded our expectations, the natural beauty of the incredible coastline and beaches is magical. We couldn't have made a better choice than Vila Vita Parc and can't wait to return.

Some suggestions as follows: - this resort has some great sports facilities which are underutilised as i.) organised use is arranged during the day when too hot to play, and ii) not enough people turn up to play team games. My son wanted a game of 5 a side but after a few disappointing attempts we gave up. Suggest put up a board where people can write their names down for daily team games, that way the games will get advertised better and more people will turn up.....and hold the games at 5-6pm so it is cool enough to play. - the restaurants all seem to target a certain standard of food and service ie high priced fine dinning. Hence despite the numerous restaurants, there is a lack of real choice, and all the restaurants were mostly empty in the evenings, when we stayed despite maximum resort occupancy. This is disappointing for the guests and I am sure for the resort. We took a taxi out most evenings to a restaurant 20 minutes away that was more relaxed, had a wide selection of good high quality food, and was significantly cheaper than the resort restaurants. I would suggest you convert at least one of the restaurants to a more relaxed family dinning option, focussing on good quality basic international food including at least local and Italian (note a need to buy a pizza oven to be able to serve proper basic Italian pizza) - perhaps add to the schedule some weekly events/ shows e.g. Jazz evening, magic show, barbeque and cocktails night etc. These might add expense but give the guests reasons to stay (and spend money) in the resort. In the evenings we stayed the resort was generally so empty it was a little lifeless - our room suffered from noises in the pipework during the night, not too loud, but more than we have experienced elsewhere Generally we really enjoyed our stay and hope that these suggestions help you improve it further. At the moment the balance of cost versus value/ enjoyment isn't enough to make us want to return, but if you make changes please advertise them as we may well then reconsider.

Visited VV 17 years ago and then thought it was wonderful, great setting, gardens, privacy etc, had young family with us then and they enjoyed it, big tick in the box. Returned last week as two couples and have to say ALL staff are really great, no complaints there at all. Internally little has changed in 17years even the decor which now frankly looks quite tired, the choice of food during the day is limited which I found strange in August. Why have restaurants closed during your busy period ! Gym could be a lot better for such a large resort. Stayed in Oasis Suites @ ‚ā¨855 euros per night each, and they still charged ‚ā¨1 euro per Nespresso pod in room !!!!! Ridiculous and certainly not what you would expect at that price. Food is excellent in resort, beach bar very disappointing menu & wine list, again service good & staff nice. All in all living on past performance, reputation, need to up their game there are a host of much better proper 5* resorts out there at those prices. Sorry but better to leave factual & accurate reviews that is what this site is for. Huge pat on the back for ALL staff as they are propping up and aged resort.

My husband treated me and our 18-month-old son to a week at Vila Vita for my birthday last week. The service was fantastic and everything was in tip top shape, as you would expect from this type of resort. My advice for anyone thinking of staying here is not to get too hung up on any one review because there's lots of different kinds of vacation experiences you can have here, depending upon your family situation and interests. What follows is a review from a pregnant woman with a young child, so there are many sports/recreation/dining options we didn't take up as a result. Check other reviews for different opinions! My husband is Portuguese and we usually spend a month or two in Portugal every summer, and two weeks in the Algarve. We decided to experiment with a resort that didn't require us to drive to the beach (although there are many gorgeous beaches in Algarve!) or dinner (although there are many lovely places to get delicious grilled fish!) and that had on-site daycare, so Vila Vita was a perfect fit. Let me first give a HUGE thank you to the truly lovely staff of caregivers at the daycare, especially Ines who also babysat for us a couple of evenings so we could have dinner just the two of us. They were fantastic. We alternated half days (2pm to 6pm) + evening babysitting with full days (10am to 6pm) at the daycare -- called Natalia's Creche, which is connected to the Kids Park for older children -- and it made big difference in our vacation experience, which before was, well, "vacation" in name only with an 18-month old! We still got in lots of pool time with our son but also a little alone time for us, and we felt very confident that he was having fun in a safe, warm environment -- with tons of toys and activities! Overall, service at Vila Vita is very responsive and extremely courteous and you will say "bom dia" more times in a day to friendly staff than you can count. Basically, if you want to do something, they will make it happen. Sandra in hospitality was very helpful, as was the rest of the staff. (I hate naming names because I either didn't catch or can't remember the names of everybody who made the experience so easy!) We ate at Ocean on my birthday, which was wonderful -- they managed to retain the essence of Portuguese cuisine, which I have been enjoying for seven years now, with high-concept innovation, not easy to do. It's a 3+ hour odyssey! The Whale was our favorite of the other restaurants: low key, nice selection of kid + international + Portuguese foods. Aladdin was also delicious and a fun layout with the kitchen in the center of the restaurant. Manuel who made the flambé strawberries and crepes tableside was a treat, and all the servers, especially the sommeliers who are very knowledgeable, are efficient and gracious. On more than one occasion, employees spontaneously mentioned how much they enjoyed working at Vila Vita, which made us very happy to learn. I was less impressed with the Adega, which, again, after eating Portuguese cuisine for 7 years, was pretty underwhelming food-wise, especially considering what you can get in a plethora of modest establishments throughout Portugal with more authentic food at 1/4 the price. Staff, of course, were still excellent. Every restaurant was teeming with servers bringing food or asking us how the food was -- a question decidedly atypical in Portugal and Europe in general! -- but there were only a handful of servers at the poolside restaurants, so we often had to get up and go order food/drinks or wait around for awhile till somebody came by. First world problem, I know, but for these prices, and in contrast to the restaurants, it was noticeable. The pools are very clean, and several are heated, and since the water in the ocean is cold, this was a plus. Note also that the resort is a bit hilly and walkways paved with Portuguese tiles which can be slippery. The few women I saw teetering on heels were braver than I was! There are golf carts that the staff can drive you around in, but if you want to walk a night pushing a stroller, bring rubber-soled shoes! We stayed in a suite, which was well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. They brought me a cake and a bottle of champagne for my birthday, which was a fun surprise, as well as another treat served in a box with balloons at Ocean after dinner (see my profile pic). One quibble: I had a facial treatment at the spa -- it was called Rose Chrystal something or other -- which I thought included a scalp and foot massage, the main reason I booked it. (Foot massage for pregnant woman = heaven). It was an 80 minute treatment, and though the aesthetician was great, no scalp or foot massage was included. In fact, she left the room for about 10 minutes or so to let me "rest" which I found rather unnecessary, especially since I didn't get the massage I was expecting. I didn't complain at the time because I thought maybe I had misread the description, but rereading it afterward I saw that I was correct. Not sure what happened there. We didn't leave the resort for any excursions, didn't use the gym, didn't golf or sightsee, just basically sat around eating and lounging by the pool, and it was a great place to do it. I think you can easily have a more active vacation then we had, but you're in good hands if you don't want any activity at all. Thank you Vila Vita staff for your hard work!

We had the perfect holiday. If you are looking for a relaxing break, Vila Vita is the place to book. The restaurants are excellent and breakfast was a real treat. Drinks and food are on the more expensive side but our exchange rate at the moment isn't great. We stayed in Croatia in July and were charged similar prices and the hotel was certainly not on par with Vila Vita. We will book to stay at this hotel again as it ticks all our boxes.
