    Top hotel on the St Eulalia beach. No other hotel in the neighborhood making the number of people at the beach very low. Fantastic views from my room to the beach. Very large room. Good facilities at the spa.

    The staff was very friendly and the location was great!

    There was a massive queue for breakfast and you had to wait for a long time to be seated! I saw a couple of old geezers swimming naked in the in-door pool - not nice!

    This is a fantastic hotel, all around we had an excellent stay. Excellent is the word to describe the staff, food, service, rooms, beach etc. We hope to come again.

    The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. Great breakfast buffet. location was fantastic. Beautiful pool area. Spa facilities are excellent. Just wish we had better "seaview" from our room as we were in -1 floor. Maybe next time. Overall great retreat! Definitely would return to Grande Real if in future we return to Albufeira. Can not beat the proximity to beach area. Nice restaurants on grounds as well. Guaranteed you will enjoy your stay.

    Not much. Was expecting a 5 star hotel and got a 4 star at most.

    Occupation is too high for facilities in August. Poor customer service because employees were not enough. Weak food menu. Not enough chairs in the swimming pools.

    The location is great with the beach a short walk away. The facilities are great, and the resourt is a perfect option if you're travelling with kids. The staff will do anything to please you.

    The hotel isn't responsible for that but he constant noise from advertisment airplanes is really annoying. In my opinion the buffet is expensive considering other options in the vicinities.

    Superb

    Facilities and so close to the beach.

    The hotel staff don't make guests respect the rules in the pool: - Guests usually leave towels on the hammocks in order to book them, and they come back to the pool few hours later. Often there were nobody in the pool and no hammocks available. -Sometimes the pool was full of air beds and other inflatables stuff and it was almost impossible to get into the pool. The rules regarding this events are very well explained in the hotel files, but the hotel staff don't deal with the guests to be applied.

    There seems to be a lot of debate about if this is or is not a 5 star hotel... I would say that if you have any doubts just give this hotel a chance. We had a very relaxing week and felt very well looked after in the Santa Eulalia. The grounds are well maintained and there is access to a lovely beach. The room and the view exceeded expectations, they were a good size, very clean and comfortable - the beds are firm but for me very comfortable. Cushions on balcony chairs would be a plus. The fitness room is one of the best I have seen in a hotel ( although a couple of bikes were not working during our stay ) and the spa which we used a couple of times was great. The breakfast.. Fantastic!! A great selection of good food and it was lovely on the patio with a sea view - this is the first hotel where I have bothered to get up every morning for the breakfast! In particular the breakfast staff are very polite and attentive ( especially given how busy they all are ) even when breakfast was closed we did not feel rushed to leave the table. The pools are small but there were at least 4 open and they were not crowded. There were plenty of children around enjoying themselves but, as a couple, we did not find them intrusive - in some resorts I have found it overwhelming.

    An area for improvement would be service in the bar - we raised this as an issue and the management have already mailed us following depature for more information. Small improvement - cushions on balcony and sunloungers.

    We had a room overlooking the Sea and it was just beautiful. Excellent beach access and pool. So many things on site, that you don't ever have to leave the resort. The breakfast buffet was included in the price and it was actually a champaigne brunch, and was fantastic. Will absolutely be back for another stay. They also have free kids club, so our 7 year old had a great time as well.

    Only that the Disco was very loud, while we were trying to sleep. Kids Club though was right next door though so our daughte could wavt to us, and come back to the room when she wanted to.

    This is my second stay at the Grande Real and once again it excelled. I particularly like the fact that the hotel amenities, the pool & restaurants, plus the beach are all together in one place. Also, the services of pilates & yoga classes included in the package are a real value add for the hotel. The food and standard of service are as usual excellent.
