These apartments (known these days just as Vila do castelo as they separated from Ponto Grande 3 years ago) are spectacular and exceptional value for money. We travelled early season and we're spoiled by peace and quiet and all facilities still available to us. The gent on reception works incredibly hard and will be courteous and helpful at all times....

This Vila was absolutely amazing, it had a great location but wasn't central enough for activities etc, had to always get taxis around 8-12 euros to and around town, the duvets were very thin and didn't have any covers on so that was annoying but overall I was happy with the place and the staff.

When we arrived, we had to wait 20 minutes for the receptionist as they were changing shifts. The Spot; a pizzeria next door, has lovely homemade authentic food, at a really good price. The apartment itself is spacious, we got two single beds pushed together rather than a double bed and the duvet was annoying...no duvet covers and separate duvets,... More

Visiting early in season this resort was so lovely and quiet. Room was clean and airy, air conditioning in living area and bedroom. Lots of useful extras included such as Iron and ironing board. Pool lovely and refreshing. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a break away from the hustle and bustle. Two beaches within a short walking... More

We had visited these apartments in May last year and were very impressed. This year we have come in late September and am as impressed this time. We asked for the one bed with garden and were given a 2 bed as it was all that was available with the garden. The accommodation are spacious and fully equipped. If you... More

Firstly I need to warn you that main enterance doors are not that welcoming, my wife bruised her hand because the key hole it's located to close to the edge of the door. the setup of all rooms in the apartment...

We have just returned we went Mid May so wasn't height of season it was really peaceful and quiet. It is a perfect break for a more chilled and relaxing holiday. (you can get to the busy areas--old town which is about 8-10euro taxi ride for busy bars/restaurants..the 'strip' in the newer part of town is meant to be even... More

Vila Castelo at Ferragudo village is delightful and sometimes we get mixed up with this place near Albufeira We have been here for over 15 years and should still be happening, would be nice if on your description you explained it is near Albufeira and not Portimao.

Just returned from a week stay at Vila do Castelo - Unfortunately our arriving flight was a night flight and we arrived at around 2 am, slightly worried that we may be out on the street, so to speak, due to the late hour. We need not have worried as we were catered for, room ready and although reception was... More
