6 Stars….highly recommend the Conrad
The best hotel we have ever stayed! I titled the review ‘6 Stars’ as this this hotel is far superior to any 5 stars we have stayed in. We had a deluxe king room which was spacious, clean, luxurious fittings and had a lovely balcony. The pool areas were never overcrowded. Great selection of food and drinks. The breakfast was gorgeous, there was nothing they did not have ! The staff throughout the hotel were excellent, in particular Vitor at reception - no matter what our query was, he went above and beyond. We will definitely be back!
My wife and I returned for our annual pilgrimage to the Conrad Algarve in September 2021. We have visited many times as it is our favourite hotel in Europe. As a HHonors Diamond member, I was upgraded to our favourite room on the top floor, and a bottle of Champagne greeted us with a lovely note from the GM Katharina. Since the pandemic, the majority of the staff are now Portuguese who speak such good English and are all charming. They all have a can do attitude which makes the stay so relaxing. The hotel is extremely Covid-19 safe and face masks are mandated indoors; there are hand sanitisers everywhere. Each day was started with a sumptuous breakfast in Louro. They will even deliver this to your room for free. We tried this on one day and it was pure decadence - breakfast in bathrobes at 1030hrs on your terrace. We sunbathed around both pools, since there was hardly any children present even though the hotel was full. We had one minor engineering fault with the Air Conditioning in our room , but once reported, this was fixed within two hours. The hotel also arranged our lateral flow tests for our return trip and transportation back to the airport. The only issue we have with the hotel is the banging of the doors (including the bathroom pocket doors) since they are so heavy and built like bank vaults. Unfortunately this is a design fault, as otherwise we would give the hotel 6 stars!! We will be back next year.
This is a stunning hotel with beautiful decor. The pool areas are very tranquil and quiet with wireless buzzers for you to use to order pool service. Food was gorgeous and quite large portions for a poolside snack. Lovely friendly, helpful attentive staff. Try and get a room overlooking the pool it’s definitely worth it. Really enjoyed staying here, it’s very relaxing.
Does it deserve a five rating? YES!
The food is truly outstanding, everything from breakfast, to pool snacks and through to dinner. You are in for a treat if you are eating at the Conrad Algarve! We also dined at several small (more local) restaurants across the road from the hotel, there are plenty of options to vary your eating locations. We had a couple of small issues with email communication before we arrived at the Conrad but these fall into the shadows when you do arrive and see the quality of everything at the hotel. This is a high end premium hotel and the prices mirror the high standards - you get what you pay for and sometimes it’s so worth it! Our minor issues were quickly resolved by Rui the Duty Manager who personally went above and beyond in making our stay a very special one. The other hotel team members are on the whole very professional and personable making our stay amazing. The rooms are fitted to a high level of quality fittings and the twice daily cleaning/turndown service were very good. The spa is first class, wonderful sauna and steam rooms and the treatments that we received were very good. We highly recommend Conrad Algarve!
The third time at this wonderful hotel and each time it gets better. Our holiday got off to a bad start as we arrived a day late, but once at the Conrad our mood improved enormously and from then on, we relaxed and our holiday really started. Our room was beautifully appointed, large in size with a view of the hotel pool .The bathroom area was extensive, with two hand-basins, large bath and separate shower.Amazingly, there is also a TV to watch in the bath. Towels are large, fluffy and plentiful - changed twice a day if used. The balcony is the largest and most beautifully furnished we have ever seen. The staff, however, are the treasure of this hotel. They have high standards, are clearly very well trained but always have the interests of the guests at heart. They are also superb personalities in their own right. Very often they go over and above anything asked of them, as they did in our case. , Breakfast was delicious and Covid safe. Generally, food was sumptuous and eaten on the outside terraces which in the evening were beautifully lit with fire pits. I heartily recommend this hotel in this beautiful area of Portugal.
