Loved it, the staff were so kind and friendly to me and my husband. The man on the bar in the hotel, Fernando I think his name is, brilliant man. Going again in April for my Birthday :). Lovely areas to go and visit. Lovely marina with plenty of shops and bars on the marina and restaurants, lovely sandy beach with gourgous blue greeny sea. The hotel is the best place I have ever stayed at. I could not change one thing about it and the staff are sensational. Great entertainment in the evenings, especially the man called Richard valentine!!!!!!! I would recommend this hotel to everyone :)

Returned after the manager asked us if he could put right our awful experience last year. We thought nothing to loose, and returned. I must say the apartment was 100 times better. The lifts worked, the sun beds weren't broken. Food in the restaurant we actually tried this year and it was good and reasonably priced. We have enjoyed thank you.

This was recommended to us by the travel agent, I don't truly think she has ever been there and valuable lesson not to be taken in by the chat!!! Positives were the staff at reception were helpful and friendly, there are 2 little motor trains which transport between the camp site and vilamoura centre, usually about every 1/2 hour. Plenty of sun loungers around the pool, nicely kept garden areas. Negatives..... room very dated, ants everywhere which meant eating within the apartment was simply not viable, beds really itchy - sure there were bed bugs, sheets changed but the ones changed to were stained, rooms dated - I know I have already said this but they were horrid, not just the furniture but the bathroom grouting, the bedding, the tv, urgh urgh urgh.
The apartments are situated quite nicely into 'blocks' (we referred to this as our 'cell block') it was quite quiet other than a couple of nights with people arriving or leaving very early/late. Good solid front door. They are well equipped but the ant problem we had meant we did not eat anything in the apartment.
We hired bikes which were dropped off at the apartment for 3 days, absolute bargain, great cycling around vilamoura with loads of cycle routes. Head down to the marina, its about a half hour stroll from the apartments, quite a nice walk through the assault course area ad seemingly very safe.
Worth checking out the steakhouse restaurant, lamparo italian restaurant and the ice cream bar (cant remember the name of this but it has a large luminous ice cream cone outside) much nicer than the Hagen daes shop. Very worth mentioning is the ticket office situated next to the Santander bank, one of the girls in there was so helpful, told us truthfully when she thought we would be wasting money on trips we had already covered with something else.
Vilamoura itself is beautiful but this hotel ........ no not good

We arrived at the apartments on 22/09/13 for a one week break in the sun and weren't disappointed. At check in the man at the desk was very pleasant and gave us an upgrade to the deluxe apartment which was in excellent condition roomy and fully fitted out. The balcony was great with sunshine afternoon to setting. Pool was of good size and plenty deck chairs available on the grass around it and lovely plants. The bar and restaurant was welcoming with reasonable prices At reception is Susanah who was very helpful at all times she made us feel very welcome.. Vilamoura marina and beaches about half hour walk no steep hills which is good but plenty transport available. All in all a great time we hope to return soon.

Stayed for two weeks. Entertainment was same both weeks & only 4 nights each week. As this is part of Oasis Village everyone came to the same venue, which was very small.

Swimming pool - during the first week it wasn't cleaned so chlorine levels were not checked either. Dead leaves in the pool proved lack of cleaning. Again the pool was used by all oasis village so getting a sunned was difficult most days.

Small shop not far away with good selection of food & drink, fresh rolls daily.

Staff very friendly & multi lingual. Cleaners excellent. Wi-fi only available in lobby & at a cost.

Work in progress but not too noisy but mess on our route to apartment.

Nothing to do close by, road. train (daily, one way or multi stop fares) taxi (€3-4 each way) or 40 minute walk to marina vilamoura & beach Not much to do so good for quiet holiday but not for me or even my parents who are lively 70+ year olds.

We have recently returned from a family holiday here in August, The two bedroom apartment was nice & spacious & clean.
Our overall observation was that we thought we had been transported back in time to the 70's. Square concrete buildings, lack of sunbeds around the pool area, basic pool not family friendly, no poolside umbrellas no pool bar. If you wanted to go to the packed beach the walk was about 45-50 mins or there was the option of the landtrain 10 mins to the beach - 30 mins back. We opted for the half board option & after 10 days we had certainly had enough of the menu choices, so we took advantage of swapping evening meal to lunch so we could go into the town for our evening meal.
Overall you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Rooms in the oasis village seemed better
