Great apartment with views over the pools

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious apartment with a large balcony over looking the pools plus a roof terrace. We found it to be clean, well equipped, albeit the furnishing, fixtures and fittings are a little older modern. The owners were very helpful before and during our stay.

We are very familiar with Vilamoura and the surrounding area, having visited several times over the last 15 years. There are some great restaurants around the Marina but the cost of eating out is quite high compared to our first week further West at Lagos.

Vila Sol itself is lovely and all the pools and their facilities are kept in very good and clean order. We did not play golf here but did play at nearby Victoria & The Old Course, both of which were very good, the Old Course particularly so.

The surrounding area is well worth exploring and Zoo Marine is also a good day out.

I would recommend the resort to those with kids as the pools are great.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted on our arrival to find the apartment clean, well equipped, and exactly as promised in the on-line listing. The location is fantastic, with a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, and local shops which stocked everything we could need. The view from the balcony and the roof terrace were brilliant; the whole area is very well looked after and couldn't be faulted. Our accommodation was extremely comfortable, and a welcome refuge from the glorious sunshine which we enjoyed on the many nearby golf courses. We would happily recommend this apartment to anyone planning a golf or leisure trip to this beautiful part of Portugal. We shall certainly be heading back!

Fabulous Apartment

The apartment is so comfortable with everything you need, it is close to the Vila Sol restaurants and walking distance to Pingo Doce supermarket. The apartment overlooks the pools, the roof terrace has a barbecue for the summer evenings and the views are amazing. This is our second stay at this apartment and we will definitely be booking again. Thank you Ronnaug and Mike we love your apartment.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment in an excellent and quiet location of Vila Sol. The apartment is well equipped and very spacious. It has lovely views on its top balcony across to the sea. The location is fantastic for the pools and Oscars bar/restaurant. It is also only a 5 minute drive to Vilamoura which is a beautiful town with lovely restaurants and bars which overlook a marina. Lots of excellent golf courses within a 5-10 minute drive away. This apartment is ideal for family holidays or for golfing weekends away. We would definately recommend it and cannot wait to stay in it next year. Thank you for letting us use it.
