Stayed 16th-23rd July. Lovely hotel, nice and clean, very friendly staff, nice and pleasant. We had bed & breakfast, the food was nice, everything you wanted.

The furniture is old fashioned, needs updating. Our room was nice facing the front on the 2nd floor, but didn't hear much traffic noise, nice size balcony, had a king size bed, with a fridge, air con, got free wifi and a safe to use free of charge in the wardrobe, again the furniture needs updating. Nice bathroom with a shower but a bit on the small side, also had a hairdryer on the wall and also toiletries. Nice view from the terrace at the back, facing the beach, nice sea view.

There are tables and chairs to sit out and have a drink and most evenings there is an entertainer on outside as it was too warm inside. Nice size pool quite a few sunbeds with a parasol and small table, again people leave towels on sunbeds then don't return for hours! Needs addressing. There is a pool snack bar serving drinks etc. It's a must to stay at this hotel, we will return.

Increased capacity in recent years has affected some services, especially cleaning of rooms which tends to be erratically timed and variable. Also restaurant can be unpleasantly full at breakfast and dinner times. The hotel is well managed and has a good location in its favour, and staff are long standing and experienced. The outdoor swimming pool can be cold and the adjoining showers are cold water only. Evening entertainment in the bar is good especially on Fridays.

Nice room, a little cold due to it being away from sunlight but the price was right. Food became repetitive after a week, also pasta dishes came without any form of sauce.

Hotel very clean and staff couldn't do enough for you but the food was a big let down, always plenty of it but never hot, had to microwave every thing which was a pain.

Very good staff from greeting to when you leave, all were excellent. Very good choice of very tasty food. This was 4th stay there and would have no hesitation in recommending it, lovely grounds lead straight on to the beach.

Read some of the reviews before we went about the staff and also the food being a bit iffy. We found in the main, that the staff and the quality of food were of a 4 star standard, In addition, the hotel was very comfortable and the management were trying to make it so.

Very clean hotel, ideally suited for the beach. Food was good but a little repetitive at the evening meal. You have to buy drinks at the evening meal but they do save unfinished bottles for the next night. British tv channels are very limited but there is free WiFi available throughout the hotel. We went in late December when most guests seemed to be retired. Not many sun beds out but they were not needed too much at this time of year although it was sunny all day and very warm in sheltered spots.

The hotel is old but with classic elegant charm, with up to date facilities, big beds, flatscreen tv in the room. The food was well cooked if a little repetitive, but perfectly edible.

The surrounding gardens, location and pool are lovely although the hotel interior needs renovations and maintenance. We booked a Superior Family room which was far from Superior and not suitably designed for 4 people, i.e. you could not get into the bathroom or open the wardrobe as the 4th bed (camp) blocked both the wardrobe doors and access to the bathroom.

The hotel staff were very understanding and relocated us to a family Suite when it became available after 4 nights. The family suite room is suitable for a family of 4 with children aged 9 and 12 but the other room should not be advertised or sold as suitable for 4 people. Alongside this the air conditioning drips water onto all balconies and the furniture is very old and tired.

Cleanliness, pool facilities and beach were very good. Staff were good. Hotel could easily be classed as Good with overdue renovations.

Vasca de Gama was a very good hotel. Immaculately clean. Wide choice of good food. Room well furnished, very comfortable beds, fridge, hair dryer, nice balcony. Free TV, safe and Wifi. Superb location and view. Reception, cleaning and other staff well presented, very pleasant and efficient. Plenty of facilities, two pools, direct access to the wonderful beach. Main bar, very comfortable but lacking in atmosphere. Pool bar, lacking in atmosphere. Beach bar, lacking in atmosphere. All bars, expensive.

Sunshine.co.uk were excellent all round, fantastic communications. Good value we'll certainly travel with Sunshine.

Adjoining rooms were noisy (loud music through doors kept open) owing to a large party of young guests. Heavy pressure on dining room facilities owing to accommodation capacity being expanded in excess of dining room capacity. However reception did deal with the noise complaint promptly. Food quality good although staff in dining room during first 30 minutes and final thirty minutes at breakfast time is below par, so guests find tables are not laid and have to do so themselves. However hotels location is good near the beach and shops; staff are helpful. Guest are mainly from Holland and TV entertainment is very poor for English speaking guests. Evening bar facilities are satisfactory.
