What makes this apartment unique

We recently installed Wi Fi (April 14) for our guests and it reaches out to the pool area so you can catch up on social media, emails and games from the pool edge.

The supermarket and chemist are only 2 mins stroll from the apartment complex for convenience.

Great Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 weeks in this excellent apartment which provides an ideal base for a holiday in Vilamoura. The apartment is well set out and had everything we needed for a great holiday. It is also ideally located and feels just far enough out to be missing the hustle and bustle of the Marina but close enough to be a short walk to the centre. All in all a great place to spend your holiday.

Perfect, perfect, perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Marina Sol, what can I say, well this apartment exceeded our expectations on every level. From the first enquiry I made the process was seamless, Mary was a gem to deal with. The apartment is amazing, with 6 adults on the holiday I was anxious we might feel a little 'close for comfort' but the spacious layout meant we never invaded each other's space. I've stayed in numerous apartments but this one topped the lot, air conditioned bedrooms, the most comfortable beds you could imagine and three bathrooms ensured our stay was 'luxurious' from start to finish. The complex itself is immaculate, spotlessly clean and really well maintained. The location is also perfect, a short stroll to the Marina, beside the tourist train, supermarket 30 seconds away. We loved every minute of our holiday, I've already recommended the apartment to friends and I am already looking forward to going back to Marina Sol in the future. Thank you Mary x

Modern apartment. Brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, 2 0lder teen boys, and myself, loved this well kept apartment. It had everything you needed in it. It was Amazing. The pool area and grounds were extremely well maintained. There was always someone cleaning the pool, mowing the lawns, general tidying, etc. I was really impressed. And there was never a need for the the 7 am rise to get a sunbed. The apartment had its own beds with additional padded toppers to make them nice and comfy.

Vilamoura itself is stunning. The marina (which is genuinely only a 5-8 min walk away) is quite high class with lovely restraunts, shops, yachts, and, super expensive cars. With this in mind a number of the restraunts and bars on the marina front can be quite pricey. However, there are cheaper ones sat back in streets just behind the actual marina, we just alternated our evening meals between the both to keep our holiday within budget.

We took a taxi to the waterpark one day. It was really fun. We booked it online through the parks official site which gives you a 15% discount, after which you are sent a digital ticket to your phone which is scanned at the gate on arrival. So it didn't matter that we didn't have a printer to hand

I would definitely like to return to this apartment sometime in the future. It was perfect for our needs, and perfectly placed for all Vilamoura had to offer.

Thanks Mary.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a lovely break at this exceptional apartment where we stay each time we visit Vilamoura. We choose this apartment because it is ideal, it is immaculately presented, very well equipped, very spacious, air conditioned and a great lay out. The 3 bathrooms certainly are an advantage when getting ready to go out. It has everything you will need for the duration of your stay and the added bonus of free WiFi.

Each morning we had breakfast on the front balcony which catches the morning sun - lovely. The back balcony very conveniently opens out enabling you to walk out to the pool area and well kept gardens.

The apartment is very secure and is situated in a nice quiet location with the advantage of a grocery shop, chemist and restaurant close by. A 5 minute walk will bring you to the busy marina, where you will be spoilt for choice with the many restaurants, bars and shops.

Thanks again Mary for all your help and of course your great apartment - looking forward to our return visit in September

Other Activities: Night life, Golden Slumbers, Romance

Golf: golf info:

If you are a low handicap group, play the Victoria. My favorite is The Old Course. The Millennium has five of the most attractive tree lined holes in Portugal. Vila Sol is OK but a bit featureless. Pinhal is delightful but tight. Laguna has lots of water. To the east you have Val do Lobo Ocean (terrific) and Royal (the famous par 3 into the wind along the cliff over ravines). Quinta do Lago North (Rio Formosa) is cheaper but inferior to Quinta South (Fantastic). Pinheiros Altos is wet and very pretty. I've never managed to get on San Lorenzo.

All the courses are expensive - just hunt around for the best deals. Happy Golf.

Everyone of these golf courses is nearby.
