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.

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.

                                                                                                      We stayed here as a family of 4 in April 2017 for 5 nights. We come to Vilamoura 2-3 times a years and know the area well. For families wanting peace and quiet the location here is ideal - its far enough out of town to be quiet but only a Euro 6 taxi ride via Uber to the Marina. It is right next door to the Laguna Golf clubhouse for a bite to eat/drink on the terrace. The apartment complex itself is modern, secure and very well looked after with gardens and a large pool to the rear. Very secure for children. The apartment itself was spacious, clean and generally well appointed. We particularly liked the 270 degree (!) balcony arrangement so you can catch the sun all day. Beds were comfy, 2 bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Adults & kids all happy. Only slight areas for consideration : The No. of towels provided weren't sufficient for a family of 4 and were a little past their best ... and the apartment walls could do with a coat of paint - appears previous renters weren't that considerate in that respect. Also very good value for money and excellent communication with the owner through the booking process. Would recommend (this is 12th visit to Vilamoura ,...)

The apartement is equiped with all the facilities we needed to make our stay homely. The location is just a few minuttes walk from the Marina and restaurants. We enjoyed the Citybikes and went exploring several times. Odette was very kind to help us when we needed to order a taxi.
