Just a couple of minor niggles - but all in all a thoroughly decent stay

Pretty good. Only things letting it down were a) it’s a bit out of Quinta and b) breakfast service was a little slow and some of it wasn’t cooked great (although cold selection is pretty good tbh) Other than that though a thoroughly decent hotel. So don’t let those two things put you off as they’re only minor and are well outweighed by the many good bits which are: - very friendly efficient staff - excellent Covid protocols - immaculately clean public areas and rooms - great bathrooms particularly the showers with quality toiletries - comfortable beds - comprehensive TV channel range including sports - great bar at reasonable prices - food in the evenings is really good - plenty of free parking All in all a really good stay. Would stay again for sure Recommend paying extra for a suite of budget permits. We did and it gives you a lot more room. Get in Block A if you can - less walking and get an upstairs room too
Beautiful boutique hotel

We really enjoyed our stay in this stylish 'Palm Springs' vibe hotel. We were a family with two older teenage daughters. The service from staff was excellent and the breakfasts truly delicious. The pool area is very relaxing with a lovely outdoor eating terrace with staff on hand to serve from the beautiful bar area. Rooms were cleaned very well by friendly smiley ladies daily with a large environmentally friendly pack of water left. I asked for an extra suitcase stand and within minutes it arrived. Hiring bikes was very easy from the hotel and was a 15 mins cycle to the beach/boardwalk where you could cycle much further afield on the beautiful boardwalk which goes all the way to Faro airport. The boardwalk is a real asset to the area. We saw turtles and wild flamingos which was very special. We cycled to the shopping centre but walking to it would be an option also with some care. Rooms are styled minimally in good taste with quality fittings and quality toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and a small fridge and kettle was in our room. QDL is a stylish resort with some fantastic restaurants. The weather was very kind to us which obviously helps. We would love to stay again especially at a time to enjoy the outdoor film screenings.

Stayed here for the second time last week for a golf break. The hotel is well situated for the Quinta courses and met our needs really well. The room was good for us though the shower could flood from the top shower head. Staff were brilliant and the breakfast and food we ate very good. Spent some time around the pool which was lovely though there were some issues with the flies. I like this hotel and whilst it may not suit all I would come back.
Not a good experience

We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel for one night. The room and swimming pool were nice however we did not have a good feeling and experience overall. The receptionist did not accept the EU Covid certificate due to what seemed to be an IT issue (her QR code reader didn't read our pass). She tried to convince us that EU Certificate was not accepted anywhere in Portugal (this is the only place we heard that) and we were forced to BUY one of the hotel's covid tests before we could check in. That looked like a scam to me. During the check-out the receptionist again lied to us saying that no taxi or uber were coming to this part of Algarve. (????) She said the only way to go to the airport was to use the hotel shuttle at a fixed cost of €42. Fortunately we checked and booked a Uber for €12. I wouldn't recommend this place as I think they just try to rip tourists off.
Amazing Golf trip at the Magnolia Hotel

Fantastic stay at the hotel for a golfing trip with friends. Service was fantastic throughout the stay and the shuttle to golf courses was also excellent. Breakfast and dinner was also really good. Overall a fantastic stay at the Magnolia!
