We stayed here for two nights, and had a great stay, the hotel rooms are ok, not 5 star but perfect for the price. All staff at the hotel were great, all very friendly and could not do enough for us. The hotel is well located and has some amazing restaurants within a very easy walk. Only issue would be...

We stayed at the “Real Marina Hotel and Spa” for 4 nights in the first week of April 2015. It was myself, my wife and two children (ages 6 and 11). We arrived on a Monday afternoon, the hotel reception was first class; extremely helpful, friendly and informative. We were grateful as they allowed us to check-in early as our...

Superb hotel!! Very interesting location for either a relatively quiet holiday or a combination of relaxation and sightseeing. Staff are just THE BEST. Absolutely nothing is too much bother. Spotlessly clean with some very nice touches. Would definitely list among the best I've stayed in. The extra cost of a sea view is well worth it.

Vast hotel is immaculately cared for and the staff are attentive and friendly however there is no atmosphere it feels like a business destination. Rooms are well equipped and the bathrooms are spacious Upside is that it is well positioned for the many local restaurants a non-touristy haven of local food. Unlike the hotel fair which is expensive and bland.

Briefly, we got a great deal for the whole package thru Easyjet and couldn't refuse.. The hotel is ideally situated for all the sights, sounds and flavour of Olhau. This is a good spot for quietly sipping a cold beer, relaxing and watching the world go by..

We returned after 3 years and were disappointed. Hotel shows signs of wear and tear that haven't been addressed. Wifi in our room was non existent. Food is mediocre but a bar across the street (Emotions) does far better food for a fraction of the price. I am writing this review based on Real Marina being a '5 Star hotel'....

Stayed for a week in May 2015. Nice spacious lobby; good sized bedrooms with air conditioning. Plenty of good options for breakfast. Plenty of room on the pool deck, and while pool was not deep, we were able to enjoy a good swim anytime. Close to a restaurant 'strip' and very reasonably priced meals there.

Beautiful hotel about 20 mins in a taxi from Faro airport. Breakfast lovely but a little repetitive. Staff extremely friendly. Facilities great. Olhao is a lovely unspoilt Portuguese town with great fish restaurants. It's a bit quiet on the nightlife though.
