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.

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.

We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers) The apartment was a perfect size - having 2 bathrooms was a great benefit! The management company Clever Details were at the end of the phone & helped out when we needed help or had any queries. The complex itself was kept immaculately clean & tidy. Having 3 pools to choose from and a snack bar (that had happy hour!) was super! Location wise, there are 2 main towns where we went to shop, eat & swim in the amazing sea (Quarteira & Vilamoura) but you need transport. Thankfully we hired a car and we also took day trips further afield to Albufera etc There are lovely restaurants within walking distance and reasonably priced! We only watched TV once, but there seemed to be great choice if that was your fancy! We arrived on a late flight and didn't plan ahead - so I would recommend you organise with the management company to have some essential supplies in the fridge until you get to the shops yourself! I would highly recommend this / complex for a family holiday - or indeed any type of holiday!

Our 3 kids loved the very private quiet pool, most of the time we were the only ones using it. The Apt. was exactly as described - homely, clean, fully functional kitchen, and the newly renovated showers were a prefect way to end a day of sunbathing before heading to the marina. Only downside was the location is a little too far to walk to the Marina so a car is definitely recommended, which i must add was highlighted by Carol from the outset. I would recommend this apartment in a heartbeat. Thank you for the memories. J.
