We stayed in the old village for a week in June. Booked out apartment with village4u lettings. We stayed in a studio apartment 27a river valley gardens. It overlooked the dolphin pool so was a lovely setting.
The studio apt was newly refurbished and was lovely and bright. The kitchen was very very well equipped for a self catering apartment. Everything you could need- massive fridge, microwave, oven, washing machine. There were a lot of glasses, plates and every utensil you could need.
The apt opened out onto a garden terrace which was lovely to eat breakfast on ot lie on the loungers in the afternoon. The TV had a wide range of channels including sky sports.
The complex itself is so well kept. The gardens are fabulous. there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.
We ate at the following:
il Gecko- this was a tapas restaurant. The food was ok but was really cheap so that was good.
Princess Gardens- highly recommend this restaurant. It was fabulous. The fillet steak was lovely. It cost 70 euro for both of us that we had two course meal and wine etc.
Bucaneers bar is a lovely spot. It is in behind zanzibar resaurant. We went here most nights for a few drinks. But they also have the option to order italian, chinese or indian takeaway to either eat in the bar or take home. We got the indian and it has to be one of the nicest indian meals I have ever tasted.
In Vilamoura we ate in the Thai restaurant across from Mc donalds twice. Again it was lovely.
We ate in nosolo italia on te marina one night. it was packed every night so we thought it must be nice. It wasn't!!!! Salad I got was bland. Service was slow etc.
Overall a fantastic holiday in Vilamoura and I would highly recommend the old village:-)
