SdV has come up trumps again. Sue , Paul & Co doing a great job (even if many of the questions on Quiz night are UK based!!). The BBQ is the best value in town, the revamped pool is great and Paul's omelets the best. Great to see so many old friends again and even better to make new ones who are always welcomed into the SdV "family". As we say here in Ireland "Go n-eiri libh" (loosely translated - "more power to you".
Come for the fun - return to make it even better.

We were there for the end of June start of July. Four adults and 5 kids. Sue & Paul were great. Got us taxis, transfers, tasty snacks and cold, cold beers. Pool was clean and well maintained, pool & bar area was nice to relax in. Very friendly place. Sue & Paul will do whatever they can to help you. World of difference from our last visit a few years ago when the place was being ran by "someone else", lol.

If you go and there is a BBQ on (usually Sunday IIRC), go for it. I haven't eaten that much in years, the piri piri chicken was even better than our usual fave (Lima restaurant, just up the road). Bottle of good white for 6 euro too. Really nice atmosphere too.

Just up the road (10 mins walk) you also have Lima, L'em casa and O Puente where we had a few good meals, very reasonably priced.

stayed at our friends appartment, great location, close to strip but far enough from noise when you want to sleep. Sue and Paul very helpful and friendly, make you very welcome, even though end of season still made to feel welcome and not rushed when enjoying a drink at the end of the evening. Paul's food very good and plenty of it. Thanks Sue and Paul for making our trip so enjoyable.

I stayed at my friends’ apartment in the 'Solar Dos Vilarinhos' this September (2009) as a last minute 'thank you' trip for some work I did for them.

The complex is lovely, the resort of Montechoro is very endearing - the lively strip, the lovely beach and, of course, the wonderful lively music venue of Erin's Isle Irish bar – a perfect end to days of relaxation

The key factor that stood out more than anything else was how well the complex’s pool, bar and restaurant area are run. Sue (the new manager) and her team (including the chef, Paul) are very friendly and accommodating - which was the icing on the cake for a wonderful trip!

I will definitely be returning to the 'Solar Dos Vilarinhos' soon, and am currently considering investing in a property there! Surely this will tell you how good it is!
