Things to do

Vilamoura marina:

The marina is Vilamoura’s main activity centre. An impressive range of restaurants, bars and designer shops line the promenade, and the multitude of yachts are fascinating to look at. Many boat and fishing trips take off from the marina and are an excellent way to spend a day.

Beaches:

Vilamoura has two beaches within the city limits. Praia da Marina to the east of the marina is a busy spot with plenty of water sport activities to choose from. To the west is the more relaxed Praia da Falesia. This long stretch of sand leads all the way to Olhos de Agua.

Vilamoura Casino:

Vilamoura Casino is an exciting destination: aside from a large number of gaming rooms, it hosts regular evening entertainment. Nights of traditional dance and song as well as revues and magic shows are held here. The current program is available online.

Loule:

The 13th century town of Loule is located ten miles northeast of Vilamoura. Remnants of a 13th century castle draw in visitors, as does the daily market where fresh fruits, vegetables, spices and fish are sold. An added highlight is the gypsy market held every Saturday. Locals sell earthen pots, wooden toys, handmade lace and more.

Everything was as described and it was great to have things like a travel cot included, maid service once a week and that lovely sunny garden. We would only suggest for future that the welcome folder should be left on a table for arrival with the pool entry key in as we didn't know about this so had to go to the management place. Also info on the restaurants and local area would be good. Minor thing as everything else was wonderful

We have just returned from a family holiday (5 adults and 2 children) and cannot recommend this property enough!! The pictures do not do this house justice...it far exceeded any expectations we had. The house is beautifully furnished and is much bigger than we expected. At no point did we feel "on top of each other" which sometimes can happen when families share a property - it was light and spacious and had everything to make it the home from home. Many other guests at the resort commented on it having the prime location at the pool and I know that several are already looking to book next year. The gardens and pool area are beautiful and have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We hired a car for a little exploring (supermarket/marina trips) and thought the underground parking (so no boiling car) was fantastic. Dean and Nadia were excellent at responding to my many questions and provided a fantastic list of recommendations for eating and beaches. I even received a text from Dean upon returning home to make sure that we'd arrived home safely and all was well with our holiday. I have been recommending this property already to friends and family and can honestly say you will not be disappointed!! Thank you once again Dean & Nadia for making our family holiday one to remember forever!! X
