“terrible place for families”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I hate to have to give such a review but would hate other families to be disappointed like we were after working all year for a family holiday. Firstly our apartment, we where delighted with our apartment which i must admit was the best apartment we have ever had on any holiday! It had 3 large bedrooms dinning room, kitchen, 2 bathroom and large living room with tv! However the other family in our party had booked a sup studio and were given a very small apartment with only kitchen and livingroom, the livingroom had 2 settees and they were there beds for the 10 days!! The complex is a place that the portuguese holiday in and therefore very few english speaking ppl round the pool and no company for the kids at daytime. There is no day or evening family entertainment in the complex! To get a taxi into town 20 mins away you had to wait up to 1 hour and the wee train was not very reliable. The marina where all the restaurants and bars r is a beautiful place but again not geared toward families. Some great restaurants and the Irish cabin was a great bar and the only one we felt relax enough to have kids with us in. Overall was worse family holiday we have had and would defo not recommend to other families. Villamoura is a beautiful place for couples but you would defo be better staying closer to marina because the taxi service is so bad at all times of the day!!!

1 week stay and i am happy with my stay at oasis village. We stayed in one of the upgraded rooms on the 4th floor with AC and we even had a view to the ocean about 2km away. Clean, tidy, friendly staff, no problems. Overall a very positive experience. One thing on the downside though, was the lack of WiFi in the pool-area.

Just returned from a weeks stay at the Oasis Village apartments. To start with the good, the pool area was very nice, plenty of sun loungers and shady areas, no complaints there. We stayed HB and the food was fine, basic but fresh and tasty, service in the restaurant was quick and the restaurant staff were all very plesant. However, its a shame the same couldn't be said about the reception staff who I found to be very unhelpful and all looked totally bored with their job.

Now for the really bad, basic accommodation is fine with me on holdiay so long as its clean but I can honestly say the apartment we stayed in was DIRTY and nothing like the photos on the travel agents website. The decor was dated, the bathroom was shabby, there were stains in the toilet and bath and the taps were covered with limescale, the cupboards and wardrobe were dusty inside and the kettle was so dirty we couldn't bring ourselves to use it. We complained to the reception staff who were totally indifferent and said they could not upgrade us as there were no more rooms available. The cleaners did come by each day to change the towels and make the beds, but thats all they did! Also, the towels they left were useless hand towels and most of them were stained with goodness knows what. On the first morning whilst using the bathroom I saw a cockroach on the floor, deciding this was Portugal and it was probably a one off I didn't feel too concerned, that was until the next morning, when I awoke with one inside my bed. We complained to the reception staff who were totally indifferent and said they would have someone check the room. Well if they did, they clearly did not solve the problem as every day we had several roaches in the room.

Vilamoura itself is a lovely place and the marina area is well worth a few visits, I would love to stay in Vilamoura again but, next time I'll pay more to stay in one of the 4 star marina hotels not The Oasis Village.

I recently had a ten day holiday at oasis village and highly recommend the place. The apartment was spacious with excellent facilities. There was only two minor things we would have liked parasols around the pools and English tv channels for when we preferred a relaxing nite in. However this did not spoil our holiday and we are looking forward to return in September .

Just returned from a lovely weeks holiday at the Oasis Village Apartments. We had a studio on the third floor and although it was a bit out dated it was clean and very well equiped with - tv, fan, full oven and 2 ring hob, microwave, toaster and full fridge freezer, the only negative was the 2 single sofa beds which involved removing covers and cushions every night. The walk to the Marina is 30 minutes but taxis are only 4/5 euros. There is a free bus during the day which picks up at the main receiption at 9,11 and 4 and takes you to the beach or marina and return. Not very many restaurants in the area but we got a good special offer at reception on half board basis for 12 euros 50 which included full breakfast and three course evening meal. We booked the package at a good price with Low Cost Holidays and had no problems with any part of the holiday. Dont get a lounger and shade at Felisia beach as it will cost you 15 euros 20 for the day.

We have just returned from a week at Oasis village. The apartments were clean, and were cleaned every day. Sheets and towels changed regularly. The grounds are lovley and well kept. Staff i reception were helpful. The restaurant was fine and the staff friendly, Swimming pool in very pleasant grounds. It is about 30 minutes walk to vilamoura or the beach, there is a courtesy bus three times a day.

This hotel has 3 complexs i.e. Parque Mouralas, Oasis Village, Pe-Do-Lago and Ive seen all great valve for money. Sleep well, Swim, Eat, Drink be Merry, and get on with your holiday,Enjoy.

From the hospitality shown on my arrival in reception to my allocated 1 bed apartment, fully fitted kitchen, really large balcony I was more than pleased.
I was also nicely surpised at the positive approach of the General Manager Joaquim Sa Pereira and all the staff very friendly and helpful the piority being to please so we would return back here.

I hired a yes a push bike (Megasport) and covered both short/long hops from a complex at expats Parkys Bar close by, on then to the large Marina and Vilamoura town all having beautiful walkways down there for a stroll and right along the beach front to Quarteira a lively and fun place, yes I even rode my bike along the cost line and villages right to Albufeira AND BACK in one Day, this not for everyone but lovely way to spend the day and earned a couple of drinks afterwards,
I have to say this hotel and holiday experience was one of the best Ive had in my years aboard at a modest price paid (and Ive holiday around the world) and so I decided to stay one more week, as the bill boards say

"I WASNT BORN HERE BUT ITS WHERE I BELONG"

YOU TRY IT TOO !!!!!
