Vila Petra

Vila Petra, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

A well presented and fairly upmarket establishment that attracts discerning guests attracted by the health facilities and well established gardens.

Although primarily a self-catering option, the restaurant is very presentable and the general atmosphere is of a highly rated full service product.

The gardens and generous pool size, along with an indoor pool compensate for the distance from the beach.

Exterior

A series of 3 long and smart connecting buildings, which appear well maintained and sturdy with their wide airy, glass sided balconies, ornamental pillars and views over the attractive gardens. A row of separately owned shops occupy the ground floor and there is limited parking outside the inviting main entrance.

Property type: Aparthotel

Balcony/Terrace: All

Storeys: 4

Built Year: 1998

Exterior: Connected Blocks

Interior

The modern and stylish interior is enhanced by an attractive atrium in the lobby area with its formal and welcoming reception desk and comfortable seating.

Courtyard style garden in the lobby adds real sophistication and would not be out of place in a higher category property.

The main restaurant is long and spacious although not overflowing in style. The bar/snack bar has an amenable atmosphere and there is often evening entertainment

Rooms: 143

Grounds

The grounds are particularly spacious and attractive with a larger than anticipated pool in a paved surround with a more than adequate supply of sun-loungers and parasols. Well tended lawns, flowering plants and shrubs and many trees add to the calm and relaxing ambience.
