I have recently {End Oct 2018 ) just finished my third visit to this excellent hotel and as on past occasions been thoroughly satisfied in all respects.
A short transfer from Faro Airport
The Hotel is located adjacent to a level promenade / Marina overlooking the Ria Formosa estuary, it is within a short walk of the town centre with its many Café s, Restaurants and Old Town as well as an open area of salt flats surrounded with walking paths.
The hotel rooms are spacious comfortable and maintained to a high standard by the diligent and efficient housekeeping staff for whom nothing is a problem.
Reception staff provide a friendly and informative service always offering a polite greeting and words of advice
Bar and waiting staff are competent, capable and friendly
Breakfast offers an extensive well stocked and maintained selection, with any special requests met by the kitchen via the competent waiting staff
Once again we have enjoyed a holiday in this excellent hotel a major element of this being due to the friendly and courteous staff
I would have no hesitation in returning and certainly intend to do so in the future

I travelled to visit a friend living locally and to celebrate our birthdays. The Real Marina was outstanding, as was the warm weather, and especially my birthday surprise of espumante with chocolate mousse. Will definitely go back to be spoiled again.

The hotel itself was lovely and everything we thought it would be, however, we ate in the downstairs restaurant on the 1st evening and the food was not good nor worth the money that we paid for it, we left most of the food and the waiter didn't even ask us why, we ate in the adjoining burger bar on the last night and waited over an hour to get our meal because apparently the main hotel was short staffed but nobody even thought to tell us this so we just sat there, the food arrived as we were about to walk out.

Stay in this hotel a few times a year and always enjoy it. This time it was my birthday that the staff obviously picked up from my passport because I did not mention it and had a bottle of bubbly and a cake waiting for us, very nice touch and as always a great stay.
