5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have stayed here for many years every year without fail since about 2002..
Last visit was for 3 weeks in jun/Jul. 2013.. Stayed in 1 bed apartment, has everything you would need bedroom, living room, kitchen with fridge and cooker etc and bathroom with bath shower..
The atmostphere here is what i love best.. sue and dena are very good and make your stay enjoying.. they cant do enough for you... one day sue overheard me saying i didnt like apple bits in my champagne sandgria and the next time from then on for the rest of my hols she never put any apple bits in it..she does what she can to tailor to your needs, whatever they maybe.
People who come to this resort are very friendly and welcoming.
Once a week they put on a bbq buffet which is about 10euros per person excellent value, includes a starter of soup.. main buffet chicken piri piri, grilled sardines, pork, salad, chips and then a dessert!! You find most of the resort will attend the bbq night!.. There is a quiz night which is fun (i was in the winning team last time) and various other nights... the bar stays open until you are finished drinking which is great!! Beach is about 5 min drive or a nice 15 min walk down the famous strip.. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone going to portugal...I have been with my girlfriends, as a couple, with my family and even solo... I love this place !! x

Just back from a 2 week holiday here. I have 2 young kids and they had a ball. Loved the pool and snack bar area. Sue and staff very friendly and nothing was a bother. A very family friendly atmosphere. Was made to feel very welcome by Sue and other guests. Apartment lovely and spacious. Location was good. About 10 min walk max from top of strip, so far enough away from noise but not too far to walk. Can recommend Slide and Splash waterpark. Fantastic kids area and lots of slides. Old town was really nice too, about 15 mins away on local bus service. Would go back again. Really enjoyed our holiday.

Stayed here beginning of August for 10 nights. Myself, my partner and 4 children. Was our first time here and had planned to do lots of things when we got there. We booked our apartment through Dale who to be fair answered any questions i had during booking. Apartment was great. Only downside was it said it had some English tv but didnt. On the positive side we had a roof terrace which we did not expect. The making of the holiday were Sue and her team and the many regular visitors who return here year after year. We spent most days round the pool, mainly because we were kept entertained with a few games etc. Poolside bar had very reasonable prices for both drinks and snacks. Evening had bbq, quiz, mr and mrs etc. Other guest had been coming here for years and were happy to welcome us into their games and gave us any info we needed about the area. Great holiday made by sue and all at Vilarinhos.

Apartment was ok for a last minute booking (3b), but no English tv, and only 1 bedroom had air con. Dale very helpful all the way through booking. Llocation was very good, 1 minute to pool and bar, 1 minute to other shops and snack places, around 7 minutes level walk to strip. Taxis are less than 5 euros to and from the Old town, which is amazing value. Best of all was pool and bar area. I had read here about sue, dinah and carol, but they really are very good. Always seem genuinely pleased to help you with anything. There's always something to do around the bar, but sue isn't pushy, if you just want to sit and sunbathe you will not get hassled into anything. All in all, great holiday made better by Sue and girls. Food was good at poolside also!
