Pinhal da Marina, Old Village or similar

Hello all, my husband and I are coming to Vilamoura for a week in early October with our then 4 month old baby. I am looking for a one bedroom apartment with some hotel facilities rather than a private rental. I was recommended the Luna Olympus but it is booked for our dates. I am considering the Pinhal da Marina or the Old Village. We would like a nice pool, a restaurant and bar onsite and walking distance to the marina. Which of these two would you recommend? Or is there somewhere closer to the marina with similar facilities? Our budget is €550 for the week. Thanks in advance!

Old Village has more choice of restaurants and bars. But it has no hotel facilities.

There's also a supermarket on site.

Pinhal da Marina has no hotel facilities either.

Both OV and PdM are privately owned and let either directly or through agents.

You could also check out the Dom Pedro Portobello hotel, right near the marina. It has spacious apartments and you'll have hotel service. The apartments have airco./heating as well. The nights in October can be damp and it can feel cool. Some heating may be useful if you travel with a 4 month old baby.

The marina will offer you shops, restaurants and bars. There are several supermarkets around.

We stayed in the Old Village last week. We really loved it but it is 1.5 miles away from the Marina so may be too far out for ye.

For Location Dom Pedro PORTOBELO would be very good close to PUBLIC TRANSPORT and Taxis to go further afield, just a few minutes from Beach and Marina, have been staying there for almost 30 years.

Also try the Ampalius even closer to the Beach and just across the road from Portobelo. both are a walk away from Quarteira with its very long Promenade along side the BEACH with lots of Resaurants and being a working CITY plenty of shops.

I always go from the end of October into November for a total of 3 weeks and always come back with a TAN.
