“Great Value for money, great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

Very well located apartments. Great value for money. Apartment was clean and cleaners attended regularly throughout our stay. Accommdated our late arrival whihc was about evenutally midnight. Nearby reception provide very useful for booking boat trips, hiring bikes, tranfser to airport and general local information. The only criticism is the noise. We had downstairs apartment close to the front door which made a very loud noise when closed, obviously in the day the day we didn't notice it but at night it could be quite disturbing! Overall definitely recommended!

The apartments were fine,very roomy,location excellent.However the real estate office that own these apartments did not send instructions on how to get the key.We did not know where the office was.We booked airport transfer with yellowfish,they were great,thankfully the driver knew where to go,he also contact them and waited with my friend and I until they arrived with the key.He then drove us to the apartment and helped with our luggageI would strongly recommend yellowfish,they were the cheapest fare £48 return,free bottle of wine,loyalty card and very helpful and safe drivers.
Sadly the pool,if you could call it that was small,no sunbeds,four plastic chairs and 2 tables,you had to lay on the grass,which was uneven,loads of ants and no where to get a drink.

Room Tip: No veranda unless on ground floor

Took three visits to collect the keys, however the Reception were friendly and helpful. We stayed in A310, security was good with grilles on the windows, so no problems. The Cleaners are very hard working, our room was spotless, plenty of towels etc. Location opposite the Roman Village is excellent for the Marina and the Mini-Golf, Post Office. We stay in Vilamoura at least twice a year, and have no hesitation in recommending a stay at the Mouraliz..

Like others I was quite concerned about what I'd got myself into when I read the reviews on this website. However, on arrival, I realised it was nowhere near as bad as others have made out. Sure, it's not the most salubrious part of Vilamoura - but then Vilamoura is pretty nice in the main, so it is certainly not bad by British urban standards. There was a little graffiti, but not enough to worry about. The apartments are also a little vulnerable to break-ins as the communal front doors seem to be left open frequently by other guests. But, if you make sure you lock all your windows and doors, you should be fine. I certainly didn't feel threatened walking between the Marina and the apartments (about 2 mins walk) even during the early hours of the morning. The apartments were also very well equipped and quite spacious. Location-wise, you couldn't get much better. Apart from being close to the marina (where most of the bars/restaurant are located), it's also on the road to the (beautiful and well-organised) beach, and about 5 minutes walk from a supermarket. I had a great time and would certainly consider returning!

I have just returned from these apartments in Vilamoura and i must say that the somewhat negative reviews posted by some people were totally unjustified ; we had three apartments and we found them safe, clean and a really great location for the beach, nightime in Vilamoura and access to transport. Check in was easy and efficent.
The area was safe - we were a mixed sex party and neither one of us felt threatened or intimidated as some people seem to be intimating. Ok, it's not 5 star, but if you are on a limited budget, like us, it's a really great place to stay. As for crime, tou wouldnt sleep with your windows or doors open at home, so don't do it 'abroad', and there are safety deposit boxes for the sake of 20 Euro's..

Went to Vilamoura for a stag weekend (4 nights). 7 of us stayed in 2 x 1 bed apartments (ground floor) and 1 x Studio.

The ground floor appartments seemed as good as anywhere else I've been security wise - the window by the kitchen mentioned by someone else as an entry route now has bars (not sure if this was the same for all floors). Security boxes were available for valuables so don't leave valuables out until you have one and lock all the windows and shutters when out - there are lockable shutters when in the appartment when you need the windows open.

Apartments were clean, comfy and well equipped (microwave, toaster, fridge freezer)

If arriving late in the day make sure you get decent directions as the key pick up location depends on the time you arrive. The reception is more like an estate agent than a hotel/aparthotel reception but they were friendly and helpful.

Pool had no bar or snacks but was OK. Beach was about 15 minute walk away and was excellent with good waves for body boarding.

The marina is right on the doorstep and has loads of shops bars and restaurants.

These apartments are very near the marina which is fantastic, however the area around them isn't nice and there is grafitti everywhere. They are spacious, clean and ok for a couple of nights, you get what you pay for. There is no balcony, its just a room.The pool area is NOT within the apartments, they are only a minute away, however did not look appealing at all and you need to pay 20E deposit before getting the key to use it. The reception for these apartments are a few minutes away also. We were only there for two nights so it was fine and I will say the beds are really comfy.
