5 Star Accomodation!!!

  • 5 of 5

One word.....wow!!! I would highly recommend this apartment to anybody. The location is far end of the Marina very quiet simply perfect! The apartment is very modern and spacious with a very well equipped kitchen, the whole place is spotless. The supermarket is a two minute walk for you to stock up. We left toilet rolls etc for the next person who arrives. The accommodation is very secure and we loved the underground car park with the electric doors :) Communication from start to finish was excellent thank you David, Maria is also wonderful nothing was to much trouble. I would recommend Toni's for breakfast which is located across the car parks first bar/restaurant as you walk onto the Marina opposite the water sports booking centre. We really miss Aqua Mar see you very soon and massive thank you again David :)

Fabulously equipped apartment, spacious, clean with fantastic location near to the Marina.

  • 5 of 5

David's apartment really made our holiday. The whole process of booking and the arrival procedure was very smooth. David was extremely helpful at every stage and always prompt in replying. The apartment was well-equipped with everything you could wish for. Two spacious bedrooms with two bathrooms really useful. Relaxing lounge and balcony area and a kitchen with every appliance you could want. Really was a home from home. Apartments are well managed and secure. Beautiful pool area with plenty of sunbeds. Fantastic location about 2 minutes walk from the Marina. Vilamoura is a wonderful place for a holiday and we are already planning to return.

Beautiful apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful apartment in July and it was perfect. It had everything we needed and more. The beds were very comfortable, we had adjustable air con and I slept better than on any other holiday. On arrival in the morning we were able to get into the apartment without having to hang around which was a huge bonus. We couldn't find a kettle so I contacted David and within 20 minutes a very friendly lady called Maria arrived with a brand new one. She was so apologetic and helpful. She pointed out her number and told us to call her anytime if we had a problem. (We didn't). I thought this was a wonderful service from them both. The complex itself was also spotless and very safe with 24 hour security and you need a fob to enter the building. The pool area is beautiful and we didn't have to get up at 8 to find a sunbed as there were always plenty. I would recommend this apartment to anyone - families with teenagers like ourselves, families with young children or older folk. It has everything you need and the marina is just around the corner. I would definitely return again :-).

Lovely clean apartment, close to the marina, great communication with owner. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in June 2017 for a week and would definitely recommend to anyone who wishes to stay beside the marina. This apartment was perfect for our young daughter, lots of shaded areas around the pool, very close to the beach etc. Great communication with David the owner from our first initial enquiry, wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this lovely apartment

Special interest holidays:

Vilamoura, and its near neighbour Quarteira, provide miles of flat ground for easy cycling - with leisurely routes around Vilamoura, the marina, and Quarteira's long promenade.

Brown's Sports & leisure Club in Vilamoura offers daily/weekly membership (including gym, pool, tennis etc.).

Aquashow water park (5 minutes by car) has tremendous water rides and is great for kids, young and old, to spend a day. Further west, approx. 30 - 40 minutes by A22 motorway are Aqualand and also Slide & Splash. These parks are usually open from April to September at least, but dates vary. Zoomarine (15/20 minutes by car, and open most of the year) is also a full day of enjoyment for all the family, with amazing dolphins, seals/sea lions etc., as well as the superb 4D cinema screen.

The Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila lie just 100 metres along from the apartment and are evidence that this modern resort area does have an intriguing past – historically and geographically.

Coast/Beach:

Falesia beach is a short walk away, renowned as one of the best. Its name refers to the red cliffs which provide the backdrop to the beach. Stretching about 6 km west towards Albufeira, the beach is great for walks (as well as sunbathing!) and there are cafes dotted along the way. Watersports are available at certain points on the beach. At the end you can walk up and over to Olhos de Agua and its cosy beach. To the east Vilamoura beach, and Quarteira beach beyond, provide yet more choice.

Travel:

The apartment is about 25 minutes drive from Faro airport – around 30/35 Euros by 4 seater taxi depending on time of day/week etc. There are 2 or 3 taxi stands around the marina and local journeys are reasonably priced. Buses run to Faro and Albufeira. 2 tourist ‘trains’ travel round the resort (including Aquamar) and you can hop on/off all day for a reasonable price. Zoomarine has regular buses from Vilamoura to the park. Car hire is easy to arrange once in Vilamoura - details provided on booking.

Distances:

Faro is approx. 25 minutes away by car (35-55 by bus from the marina). It has a nice small marina, pedestrianised shopping/cafe area, and interesting historic quarter - one adjacent to the next - and perfect for a half day or longer. A boat tour from Faro of the Ria Formosa nature park is well worth the time.

Historic Silves is c. 40 Km and Portimao, with its nice squares and good shopping, 50 km away.

Lisbon is 3 hours by car, bus or train, and worth adding to an Algarve trip if time allows.

Further Details:

The marina provides an attractive and relaxing spot for leisurely strolls - day or night. A great choice of bars and restaurants awaits – and you’ll never miss a big sporting or other televised event as many of them have comprehensive satellite coverage. Watersports, boat and fishing trips are available from the marina. Vilamoura also has a lawn bowling club and a tennis club with 12 courts (5 floodlit) - all within walking distance. The resort's casino has a great reputation - as well as the tables and gaming machines, you can see a spectacular international show, enjoy dinner, and dance at Blackjack's disco! There is a very handy mini market at one corner of the apartment building (seasonal opening) and a couple of small supermarkets in the marina area, which are about 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Cash machines are available around the marina. As you enter the town of Almancil, 10 minutes drive to the east, there is a larger, very popular supermarket (with a Barclays bank opposite). Almancil also has an impressive karting track, including junior track. Large indoor shopping complexes can be found as you head into Faro, and also at Algarve Shopping (15 minutes to the west of Vilamoura). There is something for everyone in Vilamoura, and the result is a lively, but relaxed resort day or night.

If you have a car the A22 motorway makes days out along much of the Algarve coast quite easily achievable. From Sagres on the south west tip, back through Lagos, Portimao and Lagoa (which is home to the Slide & Splash water park, and also has the pleasant beach resort of Carvoeiro nearby, as well as historic Silves slightly inland).

Closer to Vilamoura, the old town of Albufeira is also good for beach, shops, bars and restaurants - and the small beach at Olhos de Agua lends a different atmosphere again.
