Beautiful hotel within a short walk of the town with fabulous views of the marina. The breakfast was amazing, the pool and spa spotlessly clean and the rooms very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Be warned alcohol is very expensive and you really can not get into your room until 2pm however it is a lovely place...

We just had a 3 night stay at Real Marina. We booked a Junior suite - Ria suite - which was well worth the bit extra money. We had a fantastic view over the Pool, Marina and out to the islands. We had a sitting room, 2 balconies, a huge bathroom and lots of storage space - we had a...

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the Real Marina. It is spotlessly clean. The staff are very friendly and attentive. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis which were very good. There was bacon, sausages, tomatoes, beans, hash browns and scrambled or boiled eggs. If you want fried, poached or an omlette just ask and they...

My husband and I stayed here for a week (first time without teenage children!) We were not disappointed. Great facilities, friendly staff, spotlessly clean and the food was good. Before our trip, I did have doubts about the food given some of the poor reviews about the evening meals. However, we had booked half board so we tried it on...

Stayed for a further 10 days in October and despite what others have said we found that little had changed from our nov 2013 stay.

Just came back from a pleasant stay. Hotel is beautiful, but I feel this is a result of being relatively brand new. It has no competition and is in the very charming and remote fishing port of Olhao. Lots of locals, good accessibility to main strip. Rooms very nice indeed as is pool but I feel this hotel is not...

We recently stayed for one week at this hotel. The room was large, the well appointed bathroom was spotless and the housekeeping service was very good. However the units were a little shabby with marks on them, the 2 'easy' chairs both were stained and the balcony furniture was damaged. The breakfast, the usual selection of hot and cold food,...

It was our 9th stay at the Real Marina Hotel & Spa, in September 2014. I feel I have to write another Review since the one I had written in June this year.
