Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Tivoli Marinotel is well located in the city, two steps away from the beach, directly  on the marina. Mainly reserved for groups, this is a structure that some will find too imposing. The place is a perfect starting point to play golf.

    Location 9.72 /10

    The Tivoli Marinotel is in the heart of Vilamoura seaside resort, 100 m from the casino between the Atlantic and the marina. Faro international airport is 14 miles east (about  25 minutes by car). To get to the hotel, take National road 125 to Vilamoura or the highway (exit Quarteira-Vilamoura). In the city, follow signs that say " Marina ".

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    All 362 rooms are of decent size (thirty m²) and each has a large balcony with a reclining chair and table. Accommodations are adequately equipped and decorated but without excess for a 5 star : individual air conditioning, television (33 channels), full minibar, safe (extra charge);direct international telephone (2 lines). The bathrooms have bathtub, two basins, hair dryers, towels, diverse welcome products, and sufficient bathrobes. Big cabinet at the entrance.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    You should not miss the Tivoli Marinotel, an impressive building featuring a highly visible façade of bleached red and yellow. With one side facing the marina, and the other facing the Atlantic, it stands on a large 30 000 m² property with a lawn, planted here and there with palm trees and maritime pines. A large terrace with deckchairs surrounds the very beautiful round swimming pool.  Open in June 1987 and regularly renovated, the building is decorated in a combination of styles - in some parts, very 70's kitch.  
    There are 362 rooms, 18 junior suites, 2 executive suites, and 1 presidential suite are housed  on nine floors.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants. With a capacity of 600 place settings, the "Aries" looks inevitably like a canteen. The large room is bright and overlooks the garden. The cuisine, of Portuguese and international inspiration, is served buffet style. Breakfast is not in keeping with the category of the hotel : few choices and little taste. the "Sirius", an a la carte restaurant open only at night (pretty height view of the marina), is gastronomic and chic. The staff  is a  little too friendly however. The menu seems original (lobster pork or banana sole) but the food lacks refinement. There is a beautiful portuguese wine list with reasonable prices. The neighbouring bar has a show every night ( magic, dance demonstration, fado, music). In season, a bar is open on the edge of the pool.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Vilamoura public beach is a two minute walk from the hotel. You have to cross a little one way road that isn't very busy which is good for a stroll along the seafront. The beach is very long and wide, limited on both sides by a pier. Deckchairs (for a charge) are available. Also water sport clubs. Coarse sand with seashell crumb.

    To know

    The hotel is perfectly located for golf lovers. Six courses - Pinhal, Vila Sol, Laguna, Millenium, The Old Course and Victoria - are a few minutes away by car (free shuttle service from the hotel). A dozen of other courses (among them Quinta do Lago, Ria Formosa and Salgados) are also found in the area. The  Marinotel hosts mostly groups (it has 18 conference rooms), except in August when its clientele consists of individuals and mostly Portuguese.
    The common areas, starting with the well-designed reception hall, may seem disproportionate. Request a room on a high floor to get a beautiful ocean or marina view.
    A free safe can be requested at the reception.
