If your looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in the algarve than I can recommend these apartments. They are located about a 25 min walk from vilamoura centre and early morning or late evening this walk is really doable, we have an 8 year old and she didn't moan with the walk! The apartment we had was located around the pool and you have your own patio area with sunbeds. We did go in the lat week of may and the pool was never busy. I'm surevitvgets slightly busier in the summer holidays. The apartments are very nice, we paid for a delux villa but it seems that a lot of people there got upgraded to a delux as it was quiet. So I'm not sure it was worth paying or just chance your luck when its quiet. We didn't see a standard villa so I couldn't tell you if the delux was any better but we were happy with the accommodation We had.
The only negative was we had no oven! And there is only so much you can cook on the hob.
We decided against hiring a car but got bikes for a day which was really good there is a great red route cycle path that is really safe, if we had have been there longer we would have probably got the bikes for longer as its really good to get in and out of town. We Went with the bike company that they recommend and the bikes are dropped off at 8 am and collected the following day at 11am. They were not the cheapest but it is convenient and we had a problem with one of the bikes whilst we were having lunch at the marina and they came straight away and swapped it over.
The lady on the desk is really helpful and gives you maps etc there is also wifi in the reception area.
Vilamoura marina is very over priced so if you are looking for a cheap holiday I wouldn't recommend vilamoura. Although if you stick to eating in the apartments you will be fine.
Although we had a great time here I probably wouldn't go back to vilamoura, but I couldn't fault the accommodation that was really nice. Vilamoura is too commercialised for us we would prefer to see a bit more of the real algarve.
Helpful tips: pre book car hire or your resort transfer online before you travel. Our taxi cost £28 with resorthopper.com
Taxi to or from the centre should be no more than 5euro each way.
Be warned The sea in may june is very cold!
The supermarkets will call you a taxi if you do your shopping there this is a little more expensive but more convenient than walking in the sun with your shopping to the taxi rank.
If its windy and doesnt feel to hot don't make the mistake of not putting on sun lotion... You will still burn.
The 2 beaches in vilamoura are separated by the marina the beach to the right is a very long walk if you don't have a car. I would recommend the beach to the left hand side (down tivoli avenue) don't buy food on the beach it's a major rip off.
If you travel in the quieter months there may not always be other children at this complex.
All in all I would stay at this accommodation again just a shame it's in vilamoura.
