All was easy a lovely apartment lovely pool always a sunbed at busy times as no reservations by towels, very close to marina with lots of places to eat
Great property and location
We had a lovely stay in the apartment. It was right on the marina and had everything we needed. We did a bit of cooking and found everything required for this. The beds were large and comfortable and the shower had good pressure! Our daughter enjoyed playing in the on site pool and splashing in the shallow kids pool. Great location for access to the marina and restaurants and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evening watching the sun go down. Would definitely recommend!
Superior apartment on the marina at Vilamoura.
We are regular visitors to Vilamoura and have stayed in many apartments. Without a doubt, this apartment is the most enjoyable we have stayed in. Located in a modern apartment block right on the marina, the property was equipped with every appliance neccessary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment and would recommend it without any reservation.
Lovely apartment next to Vilamoura Marina ..
very nice spacious two bedroom apartment in excellent location ..
A beautiful apartment, in an amazing location so close to the Marina. The apartment was spotlessly clean with everything you could need for a holiday. The whole building is kept in a pristine condition. Would definitely return. David always replied back to emails immediately. A really great holiday. Thank you.
Vilamoura, and its near neighbour Quarteira, provide miles of flat ground for easy cycling - with leisurely routes around Vilamoura, the marina, and Quarteira's long promenade.
Brown's Sports & leisure Club in Vilamoura offers daily/weekly membership (including gym, pool, tennis etc.).
Aquashow water park (5 minutes by car) has tremendous water rides and is great for kids, young and old, to spend a day. Further west, approx. 30 - 40 minutes by A22 motorway are Aqualand and also Slide & Splash. These parks are usually open from April to September at least, but dates vary. Zoomarine (25 minutes by car, and open most of the year) is also a full day of enjoyment for all the family, with amazing dolphins, seals/sea lions etc., as well as the superb 4D cinema screen.
The Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila lie just 100 metres along from the apartment and are evidence that this modern resort area does have an intriguing past – historically and geographically.
Falesia beach is a short walk away, renowned as one of the best. Its name refers to the red cliffs which provide the backdrop to the beach. Stretching about 6 km west towards Albufeira, the beach is great for walks (as well as sunbathing!) and there are cafes/restaurants dotted along the way. Watersports are available at certain points on the beach. At the end you can walk up and over to Olhos de Agua and its cosy beach. To the east Vilamoura beach, and Quarteira beach beyond, provide yet more choice.
The apartment is about 25 minutes drive from Faro airport – around 30/35 Euros by 4 seater taxi depending on time of day/week etc. There are 2 or 3 taxi stands around the marina and local journeys are reasonably priced. Buses run to Faro and Albufeira. 2 tourist ‘trains’ travel round the resort (including Aquamar) and you can hop on/off all day for a reasonable price. Zoomarine has regular buses from Vilamoura to the park. Car hire is easy to arrange once in Vilamoura - details provided on booking.
Faro is approx. 25 minutes away by car (35-55 by bus from the marina). It has a nice small marina, pedestrianised shopping/cafe area, and interesting historic quarter - one adjacent to the next - and perfect for a half day or longer. A boat tour from Faro of the Ria Formosa nature park is well worth the time. Such tours are also available from Olhao, not far beyond Faro. Olhao also has a pleasant promenade by the water, with several cafes.
Historic Silves is c. 40 Km and Portimao, with its nice squares and good shopping, 50 km away.
Lisbon is 3 hours by car, bus or train, and worth adding to an Algarve trip if time allows.
The marina provides an attractive and relaxing spot for leisurely strolls - day or night. A great choice of bars and restaurants awaits – and you’ll never miss a big sporting or other televised event as many of them have comprehensive satellite coverage. Watersports, boat and fishing trips are available from the marina. Vilamoura also has a lawn bowling club and a tennis club with 12 courts (5 floodlit) - all within walking distance. The resort's casino has a great reputation - as well as the tables and gaming machines, you can see a spectacular international show, enjoy dinner, and dance at Blackjack's disco! There is a very handy mini market at one corner of the apartment building (seasonal opening) and a couple of small supermarkets in the marina area, which are about 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Cash machines are available around the marina. As you enter the town of Almancil, 10 minutes drive to the east, there is a larger, very popular supermarket (with a Barclays bank opposite). Almancil also has an impressive karting track, including junior track. Large indoor shopping complexes can be found as you head into Faro, and also at Algarve Shopping (15 minutes to the west of Vilamoura). There is something for everyone in Vilamoura, and the result is a lively, but relaxed resort day or night.
If you have a car the A22 motorway makes days out along much of the Algarve coast quite easily achievable. From Sagres on the south west tip, back through Lagos, Portimao and Lagoa (which is home to the Slide & Splash water park, and also has the pleasant beach resort of Carvoeiro nearby, as well as historic Silves slightly inland).
Closer to Vilamoura, the old town of Albufeira is also good for beach, shops, bars and restaurants - and the small beach at Olhos de Agua lends a different atmosphere again.
