This was our second holiday at the Crowne Plaza, Vilamoura, November last year and March 2017. We worried about going back for a second visit as often second time around is not always a good idea.
We needn't have worried, the hotel was as good as the first time, if not better. From walking through the front door we were made to feel welcome from and excellent guy on reception, wish I'd made a note of his name. Room was a deluxe with side sea view though we were right on the corner near to the sea. Room was comfortable and well appointed, just one small point, one chair on the balcony, we actually moved one of the bedroom chairs outside as the weather was do nice late afternoon. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice of everything you'd want. We were half board, in November dinner was buffet style, this time al a carte which was excellent , apparently the buffet returns when the hotel is busier. Both the experience of the buffet and al a carte were excellent. Just one little gripe the outdoor pool was so cold I'd liked to have had access to the warm indoor pool but not to have to pay for that, just a small point. The pool area itself was spotless, but as I say, the water was freezing . We are really looking forward to returning, possibly later in the year, September and October could be very nice. Full marks to all concerned, our only problem, the week went too quickly! [Less]
