Stayed here for 10 nights 8-18 July in a suite which was fantastic - lovely big bedroom and bathroom and lounge area with sofa bed for 2 children to sleep on and another bathroom. Towels changed regularly and bathrobes supplied. Fridge in lounge for storing water and soft drinks. Staff very friendly and helpful at reception and in the restaurant. We were staying on half board basis - breakfast had very good selection of everything, dinner maybe slightly less of a selection but the buffet did change each night. Restaurant was much quieter in evenings as most people were on b&b basis. We were pleasantly surprised by a trolley in our room with cakes and bubbly on our anniversary which the hotel kindly provided - Thank you! Only down side if on b&b basis long wait for taxis at hotel after 7pm.

My wife and 12 yr old son Stayed here under a month in Grand Real, I stayed 1st 2 weeks,& we were joined by other family & friends at different intervals throughout, obviously in pre-booked other apts on the complex. We stayed in a 1 bed apt. Bed & breakfast included, which was excellent. Have been coming here last 3 yrs in a row. We always enjoy our stay here in The Grand Real, our son meets up with the same kids every year and looks forward to catching up with his mates and meeting new ones. Certain members of staff went beyond the call of duty, Filipe in the restaurant always had a warm welcome and went out of his way to help. He was so sweet to my 12 yr old, thank you Filipe! However certain other members including the young gent who stood at the cash register at the evening buffet and a lady,a senior lady/ waitress with long hair in a pony tail were not so professional. Every time I visited( and wished to sign for my evening meal) I was questioned in front of the whole dining room, when I will be paying and did I want to pay for the previous evenings..... This was before we even sat down.....I almost felt they thought I was trying to pull a fast one! It kind of put us off, & we tended to eat out instead of the aggro. Martins restaurant and the many restaurants in the nearby village are great. Joao in the kids club is absolutely wonderful. He is the heart of the kids club. He was always so full of energy and enthusiastic with the kids. We really, really missed Antonio, who was a porter this year. We would love to see him return to the kids club, his smiling infectious enthusiasm is missed greatly. One last gripe, the pillows are very hard and uncomfortable in the apartments. Overall, another enjoyable stay, thank you.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a week. I stayed in a studio which I thought was home from home. The pools we're fantastic just outside our room and there were more than enough sun loungers to go around. Staff was a great help the only downfall was that my stay was too short

We stayed for one week from 12th July in a one bedroom apartment. Lovely apartment, spotless, great air con and comfy bed. Kids v happy in lounge. Staff are all very helpful and friendly. My daughter has coeliacs disease and they kindly organised gluten free bread and cake. There was a wonderful breakfast choice for all everyday. Location superb, gorgeous beach. Beach has water sports if you like that kind of thing. Live music in the atlantico bar wonderful in the evening. We enjoyed eating at the restaurant actually on the beach - great fish. Taxis are cheap. We went to olhos d aqua a few eves - loads nice restaurants 5 euro in a taxi. Also has a great beach. Lovely pool area - ice lollies for the kids! Walk out of main gate and turn right and supermarket 10 min walk. Sadly whilst away my daughter became unwell and needed her appendix out. The hotel were wonderful. They arranged a doctor. Sorted taxi. Phoned us in the room to ask if they could help with anything. Our jet2 rep mary Jo was superb. She helped us in our hour of need and also visited my daughter in hospital. We love this hotel and the staff. It is low key but our kids love playing on the beach at night so it suited us perfectly. We have never been back to the same location but we would come back here!
