Guestbook comments from the owner

My family spent a week in your charming apartment. We thought it was spacious, secure and very good value for money and the complex was very clean and well maintained.

Just wanted you to know what a lovely time we recently had in your apartment. The apartment is wonderful and was great to be so close to the pools for the children.

....just a quick word to say "thanks"...we throughly enjoyed our holiday and your apartment contributed to this in a big way.

excellent apartment in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was excellent with everything you need. Over looking the pool from the balcony which got the sun till late dinner but don't worry the fabulous roof terrace had sun all day till the sun went down and a great bbq to use. All outdoor furniture had cushions to use. Table and chairs on balcony and on roof terrace. Kitchen utensils had everything you need and all in great condition with plenty of plates, cups, glasses etc... (there was a washing machine and dishwasher but we didn't use these..) The whole apartment was as described and the view to the pools was great and the heated pool was a plus with plenty of sunbeds. The grounds was very well kept and spotless with gated security access into the pool area. Restaurants on site were very good and we tried them all except the moon which was closed. Small supermarket and a deli coffee and cakes onsite and customer service if needed. It's a large complex with lots of apartments, villas and the hotel all safe and spotless everywhere. Car would be recommended .

Fabulous apartment.One of the best we've stayed at.Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Daphne and John have left nothing to chance in making this a real home from home with everything you could ever need. Brilliant. The complex is superb, beautifully clean, immaculate well tended garden areas with constant security on site at all times. We loved the three pool areas which on the whole were nice and quiet, ideal for peace and relaxation although the time of year could have influenced that.

We have nothing to say but good things regarding our stay at Villa Sol, not forgetting the friendly agents who welcomed us and went out of their way to help us with a couple of minor problems not worth mentioning about

We will definitely be returning in the not too distant future, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the apartment to anybody wanting a lovely holiday with everything taken care of. Many thanks to Daphne and John and all concerned.

Comfortable well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Vila Sol which is an excellent family resort. We have stayed at Vila Sol on numerous occasions however we found this apartment to be the best so far. For a family of four it was spacious and well equipped. We felt comfortable and there was ample room to sit out on the balcony or the roof terrace. It is close to the gate for the pool and pool bar. The owners responded to enquiries quickly and again we received the best service in terms of communication etc than we have on previous visits. Thank you would definitely recommend and if we return next year we will stay here.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this lovely apartment. Immaculately clean, spacious and very well equipped. The apartment complex is lovely too with excellent swimming pools and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Overall - this apartment is excellent value and we would certainly go back again with our two children! Many thanks!

Lovely apartment and great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this apartment in June. The apartment is very spacious and well equipped and we particularly appreciated the large roof terrace for sunbathing and barbecues. The balcony off the lounge is also a good size and overlooks the lovely grounds and swimming pools which were also very well maintained. We used the pool bar for meals and drinks by the pool which was very good value, and Oscars bar is also worth a visit in the evenings for a range of entertainment. The Pingo Doce supermarket is very close by and has a good variety of foods. Vilamoura is only 10 mins drive away and has a large choice of good restaurants. Also worth a visit is the water park which is literally just up the road.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to re-visit in the future.
