Best holiday ever, fantastic top class apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed out in Vilamoura on the 9th to the 23rd of August. The weather was heavenly. Loads to do, went to zoo marine, where our 9 year old went swimming with the dolphins (expensive, but she adored the experience) The aqua park was also great, loads of rides and different types of pools for all ages - you could spend a few days there. The Apartment was really fantastic, 2 large bedrooms and a king size pull out bed in the lounge. The lounge area was huge and very tastefully decorated. There is sky tv, so all of the home comforts, minus the rain. The terrace overlooking the pool is very large and divided into two seperate areas, the larger of which is covered, providing shelter from the mid-day sun, the other part is an absolute sun trap. The pool was one of the nicest we had seen. You walk into it from both sides and the temperature of the water was beautiful. There is a jacuzzi at one end of the pool, which is lovely to sit in and watch the world go by. There is a baby pool at the opposite side of the pool surrounded by grass, where parents can relax and watch the children. The Irish Cabin at night time was very lively, with great bands and full of atmosphere. Vilamoura is an upmarket resort and you will not see one street trader trying to sell cheap watchs etc., This being said, there are some great happy hours to be got - the Matador Pub 7-8 all local drinks half price (great way to start the evening). The Beach if stunning, rolling on for miles and the water is crystal clear. The fish market is so worth a visit. The Marina with the yaughts and boats worth more that I could even imagine were amazing to look at and fantazise. We really loved the holiday and will definately be going back there, for sun, sea, sand and wine. If you do get a chance to stay in this top notch apartment - take the experience, because it is really super - piped music, plasma tv, electric blackout blinds, air conditioning, beautifully decorated, large patio's...... heaven, heaven, heaven..... Until next year - we will bring out own yaught. Thank you very much, james for the use of the apartment and to Andre who was there to meet and greet us. Bye x

Again, thank you and it was more than a pleasure having you as a guest in what we feel is a real jem in the middle of Vilamoura.

A must. Will definitely Return!!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from an amazing 9 days, in this fantastic apartment in Villamoura. We've been on many a family holiday to date, lanzarote, mainland spain twice and southern france and this by far blows the rest of them away. so good that im actually writing a review.

My husband and two kids (6 and 9) really enjoyed this holiday. The apartment is even more attractive that what the photos can show so that tells alot. the apt is well located with many golf courses including one on the european tour card nearby. it is a 3 bedroom apt wit one room en-suite including a bath, if you have extra travellers there is also a pull out bed so the apt can sleep 8 comfortably.

We arrived at the apt at 12pm to be greeted with a maintanance man who show us around. there was no problem wit the early check in or 4pm leavin time. the apt was spotless, compliments to the cleaners. the pool is located just outside the back pation so uve no problem keeping an eye on the kids in this enclosed apt.

we rented a car in the town for two days and drove the coast both days east and west and we had a secure underground carpark for the car overnight. loads of activities to keep the kids and husband happy including the bars.

this is my first time staying here and have already been in touch with the owners about renting it again next year.... cant wait.

Highly recommend this luxury appartment.

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a fantastic 2 week holiday. All correspondence with the owner and the key holder was superb and the apartement itself was lovely. It is furnished to a high specification and has everything needed for your holiday. The large balcony is ideal for a BBQ lunch and the pool is really big and hardly every used! Both appartment and pool are very clean.

We ventured out to the neighbouring towns of Alberfuria & a few others so I would recommend renting a car. Aqualand was good fun and not too expensive.

Overall this is an excellent value for money, luxury holiday in a superb location. We would definately condiser going back in the future and have recommended it to our friends!

Villa Moura Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying in this beautiful apartment within a very secure and maintained complex. The aprtment is self contained and decorated to the highest standard, piped music, plasma tv, electric blackout blinbs and a lovely large terrace. By day you can sit on the terrace or by the pool enjoying a totally relaxed experience with family and friends knowing that you do not have far to walk to the apartment!! If you are feeling energetic you can walk to the Marina (would recommend comfortable shoes) and enjoy a lovely lunch /dinner in a restuarants /bars of your choice, looking out at the sea and the numerous yachts moored in the Marina. If you prefer not to walk you can drive or get a taxi (very reasonable and arrive within minutes of booking one). I highly recomend this apartment and Villa Moura and am really looking forward to my next trip.

Firstly I would like to thank James and his lovely family for the use of your superb apartment.

This holiday was our fifth in Vilamoura in the last three years and by far our most enjoyable.

The apartment is beautifully appointed throughout and very spacious with its two large bedrooms and a large living room that open out on to a superb patio area that leads to the outstanding swimming pool and Jacuzzi.

It is also ideally located for all the regions superb golf courses and the marina with all its fabulous restaurants.

All in all it is a superb base for your holiday being only twenty minutes from Faro airport and with the EN125 running close by you will be able to explore the whole Algarve region easily.

Amazing 5 Star Apartment in beautiful Vilamoura

  • 5 of 5

Both myself and my partner stayed at this beautiful apartment from the 12th of January for one week. I could genuinely not believe the standard of the apartment and the complex. There was all the basic necessities ie:dishwasher, cooker, washing machine, microwave and then there were the extras. The entire apartment has piped music in every room (bathrooms included), blackout blinds, huge plasma tv with sky tv, dvd, cctv, intercom and a beautiful marble fireplace, which we lit on the evenings we did not go out - it was just heaven. There is a large veranda area at the front and pool side of the apartment - the latter leading directly out onto the pool. This is a ground floor apartment and the view out towards the pool is beautiful. The pool and garden area consists of decking, shubbery, grass area, Jacuzzi, large pool and baby pool and is immaculate. At night, spotlights light up the entire area and there is even underwater lighting in the pools. The walk into Vilamoura is about 25 minutes and the scenery is lovely. The taxi service is faultless, once phoned, they were outside the apartment within 10 minutes and they cost between 5 and 8 euro depending on the time of night or morning!!! in our case. The Irish Cabin Pub is hopping after 11pm and the bands are excellent. There are loads of bars, cafes, restaurants down on the Marina and it is a great place to relax and watch the world go by. We took a boat trip and it cost 15 euro each for 3 hours (wine included) it was good fun and a great way to see the algarve from the sea. Seemingly in summer they stop off at little beaches and rustle up a bbq etc. We found the Matador pub great for "happy hour" all local drinks were half price and then there was a "cocktail hour" again the same. The quality of the food in the restaurants was unreal and you could eat out for a couple with wine for 20 euro - unbelievable. The whole Marina area is beautiful and of course the yaughts or mini-hotels were stunning - you would really wonder who could afford such luxury. We had an amazing holiday and will definately be returning to this paradise. Before I go, a special thanks to Andre who was our "meet and greet" he gave us loads of little tips about where to eat, drink etc. and is a gentleman. If you get a chance to go to Vilamoura - DO (by the way it is seemingly famous for its golf - we dont play) and if you get a chance to stay in this wonderful apartment DO, it is really 5 star luxury.
