I returned to vidamar in June 2021. The hotel has undergone some changes and renovations. This is perhaps the least positive aspect. I didn't like the bar being at the hotel reception, the dark tones of the decor or the lack of light in the corridors of the rooms. The rooms are big and very comfortable and the outdoor pool area is huge and very nice. The pool bar serves light meals with good value for money. However, the price of cocktails were a little excessive. The dinner buffet is varied and of quality. I missed the Japanese restaurant that once existed in this resort. The proximity and excellent access to Salgados beach is an asset of this hotel. I would like to highlight the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff who made every effort to make our stay during the pandemic period as pleasant as possible. The hotel spa is pretty good. I found the gym too small for the number of hotel guests. Without a doubt, it is a very good choice for those who want a few days of rest with their family.
Great in so many ways
Just returned from a half term week at VidaMar. All in all its a great hotel. Pro's - rooms are recently redone, large, well appointed, spotlessly clean, nice beds and good shower. Pool and garden areas beautiful and well spread out (didn't make it to the Mar Club but that looked lush), the hotel is positioned by a stunning and well kept beach. Stunning spa with really lovely staff. In fact staff all round were all so nice and super friendly and efficient. Good stuff going on for kids, and we loved the guy with the trumpet by the pool. Big thumbs up to the Sunset bar for lovely lunches and great staff. Cons - I've only given VidaMar 4 stars as its buffet restaurant lets it down. This is where you currently go for breakfast and dinner. As before, the staff are great and its very clean but the food is way below 5 star level. Its not bad or offensive in any way its just very basic, bland and not much choice. Saying this we are travelling in the world of covid (well managed by hotel in general) and that may have had an impact, and in generally we don't like buffets. Wished the other restaurants had been open. All in all, fab though- thanks for having us.
STAY AWAY - Ants, ants and more ants
Stay away. The room was full of ants! The hotels answer was to spray these and not even clean up the dead ants which were quickly joined by new ants all over the room. The room door was faulty and locked us in / out. The hotels answer here was to leave it partly open to avoid inconvenience. Despite all this the hotel refused to refund / partly refund payment. In summary - STAY AWAY
DO NOT BOOK !!
DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL ITS A SCAM.. when we arrived we had to wait 40 mins for our room, elevator weren’t working, got to room was 4 single beds crammed in one small room, (not suitable for a family with older children) ANTS from the balcony going on one bed, LOST our suitcases for over an hour, (said they can’t find them) No running water, the manager said will work soon so we went swimming pool then after about 2 hours still was NO running water, (so couldn’t shower) had to go dinner without washing! Not appropriate for children! Staff were rude, spoke to manager called Luis Camilo and he agreed to pay back our money as we didn’t feel comfortable staying, we booked somewhere else. Shock he didn’t agree after we left and never gave our money back and is LYING to the company we booked it through ! THIS HOTEL IS NOT 5 star at all Food was horrible and cold, my children were starving hungry I would Definitely book somewhere else and save your money, Please don’t make the mistake we did.
We’ve just returned from an eight night stay & we loved everything.. The hotel is very modern , well maintained & the staff are fantastic We arrived early ,so we weren’t able to go to our rooms straight away but we were able to take our cases to a bathroom/ changing room so we could freshen up & use the pool or head to the beach .. The pool area is huge , with one massive non heated pool & 2 smaller childrens pools (one heated). Also an adult pool area , that we didn’t use The grounds of the hotel are beautiful, with lots of private areas to sit & relax , a wooden promenade takes you to a secure gated area that leads to the beach .. The rooms are spacious, lots of wardrobe, drawers to put clothes , a free safe,fridge, kettle & hairdryer are provided. The shower & toilet area are also spacious & plenty of toiletries are provided .. The bed was very comfy & the pillows ! ( wow) We were HB & were spoilt for choice , plenty of choices , all freshly cooked Breakfast was a choice of hot buffet , fruit , cold meats , cheese , cereal & pastries Dinner had plenty of choice , with some foods being cooked to order, fish , chicken , veal The gym was shut due to covid , but there was a small room with weights , running machine etc Only 2 people are meant to go in at a time but at times there were more , so my only moan would be maybe some kind of booking system , so you don’t have to wait outside to have your turn ? There is a small shop downstairs to buy water etc But we went to a mini market 10 mins away to stock up , that was very reasonably priced Considering the situation with Covid, I think the staff all did a fantastic job in providing top service & helping us enjoy this much needed holiday ⭐️
