Great 1 one bedroomed apartment in Vilamoura outskirts.

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment in the outskirts of Vilamoura.

10 min walk to Supermarket and Marina.

Everything included in the apartment from corkscrew to DVD player.

Nice pool on the complex with plenty of loungers etc.

There is no aircon or wifi. We knew this before we arrived, it just so happened the temp hit 41 degrees whilst we were there.. so it was pretty hot in the apartment.

Has cafe/restaurant on the doorstep, which serves good food and drinks.

Nice and fast communication with owner.

We had great holiday!!

Top tip.. try La Pizza Locca which is 15 min walk. All you can eat pizza for 12.95!!

Great location to the marina and lovely surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in our accommodation. It was well kept and in a good location to walk to the marina. The surrounding area is really nice.

We had no issues with parking our rented car. The neighbour was very friendly.

It would be even better when internet is installed in the flat but we got around with the new data roaming changes.

Great value for money! Definitely coming back!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be happier with our holiday. The apartment made it that much better as it was much more than what we expected. Very modern and bright. Had everything we needed. The kitchen had every Hing bar a dishwasher which was fine. The local supermarket and the spar was less than a km walk away so for me only took less than 10 mins which meant we could cook in the apartment quite a lot. I loved how we could have both the quiet area and the nightlife as the marina was only a 10minute walk away. If you are a fan of seafood then this is the place for you, if not there is a range of food options for every budget and taste.

Thankyou for a lovely stay, I will definitely be returning!

Great location to relax and unwind for all ages

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment had all of the mod cons and very well presented. The complex had a nice pool and a good place to relax. The marina and shops where a short stroll with a restaurant just next door. Great and quiet location for all ages with the nightlife a short walk away if desired.

All and all a nice relaxing Holiday and defintely got more for our money than what we paid.

Perfect Place to Relax

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was well furnished with mod cons, well maintained and was perfect for our stay. The complex was within walking distance of local shops and the Vilamoura marina where all the town's life is. The complex has a pool which provides a perfect area to kick back and relax and enjoy the Algarve climate."

A FUIR !!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

Cet appartement est à fuir au plus vite !

Voici tous les problèmes rencontrés durant notre sejour d'une semaine (du lun. 1 août 2016 au lun. 8 août 2016) :

- odeur très désagréable dans l'appartement due aux remontées d'égouts dès que l'on tire la chasse d'eau ;

- appartement très sale dès notre arrivée, alors que soit disant un service "professionnel" réalise le ménage avant les arrivées ;

- pas de climatisation, cet appartement est un four ;

- pas de volets dans le salon (si vous êtes plus de 2, la ou les personnes qui dormirons dans le salon seront réveillées vers 8h par les rayons du soleil) ;

- pas d'accueil

- coupures d'électricité incessantes

- aucun produit ménager prévu pour votre arrivée (que ce soit papier toilette, liquide vaisselle, éponge, sel, vinaigre etc.)

- vis-à-vis indéniable sur le voisin qui se balade nu à longueur de journée ;

- et j'en passe...

Le pire dans tout ça et qui est inacceptable, c'est que l'annonce est totalement mensongère! Il est dit que l'appartement est à 10min de tout (commerce, plage, bar, restaurant, La Marina...), hors ceci est un gros mensonge. Nous avions bien précisé que nous n'aurions pas de voiture lors de notre semaine et que nous devrions tout faire à pieds par conséquent la distance était très importante pour nous. La personne nous a confirmé plusieurs fois que nous n'aurions pas besoin de voiture, mais en réalité l'appartement est à 30 min à PIEDS de TOUT : des premières plages, des premiers supermarchés, de la Marina, des bars et des restaurants.

C'est une réelle arnaque, nous avons passé des vacances gâchées à cause de cela.

The apartment is located on the Rua Melvin Jones which is just 12 minutes from the Marina (Algarve's largest!) and the beautiful sandy beach - Faleshia Beach is 2.5 kms walk. There is another beach closer at the Quarteria end. Local grocery store and family run restaurant just minutes walk from the apartment. Restaurants, Cafes and Bars are located in abundance within a 10 minute stroll as well as the Casino where there are excellent shows held during the high season. There are lots of excellent golf courses in the immediate vicinity for the golfer. Nearby Quarteiria holds an excellent weekly market. Loule, up towards the mountains has great shopping and an excellent market on Saturdays. A stroll around the Old Town of Faro has to be recommended and is just 20kms away. Faro also has an excellent modern large shopping center called The Forum. Albuferia is a short drive away with Lagos slightly further but worth a visit. Cape St Vincent is Europe's furthest point and is a great day out. There are also numerous parks and water parks in the immediate area. The concierge will be delighted to give you further information on any of the above.

Other Activities: Water Sports galore, nearby Spa and Fitness Centre, nearby Casino.
