Crowne Plaza is in Vilamoura's city center, just a short walk from the Marina and a 10 minute drive from 5 golf courses. The tastefully-decorated rooms have furnished sea-view balconies.

Score from 894 reviews Very good
Stayed here many times over the years both as a holiday break or golfing with the lads. Always fulfils my requirements.
Can be annoying if you have a room overlooking the casino with the air con units working away.
Great location lovely clean hotel we had a junior suite which was very big and cleaned everyday by lovely staff, breakfast was also very good
Full off large groups of male golfers who appeared to spend a lot of time drinking and not golfing
The price 4nights bnb for 140euro. Large selection at breakfast. Spa service and indoor pool area. Location was right on beach and a five minute stroll to the harbour. Bus stop straight outside hotel to get bus to other nearby resorts.
can be more windy at the beach location. Bar service a little slow at times but regonise time of year and limited staff.
excellent location to the marina. buffet breakfast is excellent with great choice. good facilities too e.g. pool, sauna etc
having to ask for the little extras - like tea/coffee making facilities in the room. This isn't available on arrival, if you ask they will supply a tray but each day the cups and tea bags don't get replaced so you have to keep asking for them. Also, there should be free wifi in the bedrooms - the cost for this is negligible
I have travelled to Villamoura and stayed many times in the Vila Gale Ampalius over the last few years. The hotel is lovely and the staff also work very hard to make your stay a pleasent one. Location is very good. I wont be retuning unless the review in the What did'nt you like box is delt with.
The Hotel clearly has a problem with prostitutes entering the hotel and going to bedrooms. They can enter freely through the hotel foyer and continue on to the lifts. I met them leaving rooms on my floor each night and they also touted in the bar area. This will give this hotel a bad name unless they do somthing about it. I also heard fellow guests talk about this and they were alsoupset. Do they hotel know the level of prostitues that are working in there hotel?
Location, breakfast, spa, room size.
Bed discomfort, lack of children facilities, bar prices, too few staff.
Location to all ameneties i.e leisure walk's by the sea and marine and near most restaurants.Beautiful view from 7th floor of sea & marine.Junior sweet very spacious incl kitchen and all cooking equipment you must request a kettle. Breakfast very good and plenty of choices especialy the fruit.Staff most helpful with every request.Very good Leisure centre but outer pool a bit cool. Relaxing atmosphere.Would certinaly go back to this Hotel.
Bed,s a bit hard if you are used to soft bed,s.A bit windy around pool side.
Hotel was very clean we had a suite with fabulous view breakfast was good location perfect beach was 2 mins walk away marina less 5 mins walk we were happy with our stay and would definitely stay again spa was excellent
Had no complaints
The location, the facilities at the hotel and the variety of food at breakfast.
There needs to be more staff on reception. Also if we had a query information wasn't volunteered to us. Eg. We asked about wifi however we're not advised of password and so had to go back and ask. Also when we checked in we had to wait 30 mins and each time we had to ask if the room was ready when we were being told 5 mins to wait.
Couldn't have hand picked anything better... Excellent location & good value for money...
good clean hotel overlooking the sea and 5 mins walk to the marina
decor is a bit dated
Comfortable room and excellent location right on the beach. Evening buffet was good. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful.
Breakfast ok but let down by poor juices and coffee and a meagre choice of cereals - the choice never changed. Room facilities such as hair drier were rather antiquated. 2 of the lifts are tiny. Safe for valuables in room not complimentary.
Location, staff, facilities, pool, breakfast
Beds a little uncomfortable, sliding patio door in room not fully sealed ,rooms in need of an update
Although very busy, the hotel did not feel over crowded, nor noisy. The food, entertainment and cleanliness of the hotel were excellent. Also, the staff were helpful and the location perfect.`
I felt that the Health Club was a little tired and in need of a refurb.
Now serves a la carte as well as buffet dinners
great location next to the marina and on the beach, hotel very clean, nice breakfast (apart from so called sausages), room cleaned every day
when you've paid €169 per night for a junior suite, you don't expect them to fleece you €3 for a bottle of water left in the mini bar, and then try and charge for six bottles when we were replacing it ourselves. and the sausages at breakfast are rubber cocktail sausages......
We have stayed here many times before and this stay was consistent with all the others, meeting our expectations during a clay shooting holiday.
Groups of male golfers behaving like children round the pool.
Right next to the beach and close to the popular and bustling Marina, it was perfectly situated. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful.
The hotel was really busy so sometimes the waiting times for a person on reception or drinks in the bar were too lengthy in my opinion.
The location, the spa, the view
Staff not very friendly. Could do with a lot of training in how to treat quests.
Lovely hotel, very good location, rooms spotless. Please note most rooms have twin beds and a proper bed would have been lovely. Breakfast was excellent. Spa facilities were spotless and very relaxing. Pool area was fan, just wish I was back there now! Thanks for a great stay.
WiFi was a bit bothersome as you had to log in every time and wasn't free in bedrooms or available at pool.
Closeness to beach and marina Staff were more than friendly and helpful in every
Vilamoura has very little attractions beyond the beach and marina . Breakfast was only average....tinned mushrooms ..??tinned /boiled cocktail sausages...."deep fried eggs" toaster which took 3 laps to toast the bread ....would take very little to make breakfast a much better experience !!
