“Great value apartment in quiet location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Second time at the Old Village and we (a group of four ladies) were lucky enough to be allocated a pool side apartment with lovely patio and garden area with beautiful flowers. Like a previous reviewer said, this seems to be luck of the draw at this apartment complex. Very clean and with a well stocked kitchen containing every utensil you could want plus lots of crockery/cutlery. We visit Vilamoura quite regularly and spent more time around the pool on this particular trip due to the fantastic locatioin rather than going down to the marina during the day. Staff at the rental office very helpful too. We always used taxis rather than walked to the marina as they were readily available and cheap too (4 euros).

Room Tip: Not sure you can choose a room - seems to be pot luck but we would definitely give it a try and ask...

I stayed here for a weekend for a friends 50th and I must admit I was pleasantly surprised, it was one of the more reasonably priced accommodation in Vilamoura the place had a real good feel, no cars in the complex and cobble streets just like an old village, The staff in the office could not have been more helpful and polite, The restaurant and bars in the complex were good and the studio apartment we rented had everything you need, bed area, kitchenette and seating area with TV. Plus of course a bathroom.
This is not a compliment but an observation, the apartments seem varied, although I was happy with our ground floor apartment it had no ware to sit out but the couple we traveled with paid exactly the same and they got a room with separate bedroom, small living room, kitchen, bathroom small balcony with a table to dine on and roof top balcony with barbecue and sun beds, luck of the draw I guess . Maybe when you book request a roof top balcony?
The pools are good (cold) this place is a 20 Minuit walk or a taxi ride from the beach and the harbour but if that is not a problem to you perfect for the price.

Visit every year . Lovely spot .
Quiet area within 20min walk to main facilitys and Marina.
Vilamoura is great especially in winter when we go its so relaxing.
There is quite a lot of golfers around as its got a lot of courses . But the golfers have their own agenda and tend to be out all day and stick to their own places at the evening time.
The marina is gorgeous with many bars and restaurants you can soak up the sun and do some people watching .
Old Village is a collection of apartments and houses set in a village style with a shop and its own few restaurants and bars and pubs so you dont have to move far if you dont need to .

The travelling time from the airport is 20-25 minutes . Take a transfer its cheaper than a taxi faro airport taxis are a rip off and drive like shumacher. yellow fishtransfers are good and one of the cheapest its who we use and with a loyalty points scheme

Have just returned from my second stay at the Old Village. Love the fact that it is so peaceful there. There is never a problem getting a sun lounger by the pool. It is a short walk down to the marina or you can jump on the tourist train. The restaurants and bars in the village offer good food and at reasonable prices Can't wait to return!

A beautiful place to relax and chill out for a week or two, absolutly spotless and all appartments are kept in a very clean condition. This was our second trip to the old village and it won't be our last.The restaurant Casa do Lago is the place to be for excellent food and drink. Heather and her husband Dave are excellent hosts along with Leanne her husband and the rest of the staff. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them and they go out of their way to ensure you continue to have a good and relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: All appartments are kept immaculate and are well serviced and looked after.

We are just back from a wonderful stay in the Old Village, like most reviews this place is a little gem it has everything to suit everyone ! we stayed in the Old Village Presitge apartments which is a much quieter area of the old village complex which suited us, studio apartment which was plenty big for 2/3 people. The complex has a great selection of restaurants to suit all budgets and 4 great bar/cafes. Villamoura Marina is a 15 minute walk and we spent most nights there as there is such a great selection of restaurants and bars and of course people watching, it has the best buzz ! the staff in the old village are so helpful, from the bar/restaurants and particularly Celia in Village4Lettings who we booked with, overall we had a very enjoyable stay and will definately be back again, I can't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: The main pool is a busier place to stay, so if you would prefer a quiet spot make sure you request i...

Had a wonderful week in a studio apartment the gardens and pools are really good and very well mantained.The studio was a good size but really needed updating very basic everything you needed but a little shabby. About 15 min walk to marina but could stay on the site good bars restaraunts and a really good little shop. We will go back but I would want to see the interior of the accomodation before I book.
