“Been there And Back Aagin”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Just back from Vila Sol after a golf trip with friends. This was our third time time in a row and there will no doubt be a fourth! Golf facilities great. The scottish guy on the tee box a particular gem. Free with his advice and patient with all golfers. The course is a great challenge for all types and afterwards the food in the clubhouse super. I advise you to try it.
The hotel is spotless and the rooms are top class. The breakfast in the hotel is tremendous and will satisfy all needs!! Did not try the evening buffet.
The hotel is located a bit of a distance from vilamoura but for us it was perfect....a secluded , relaxing and peaceful island!

Peaceful and relaxing location with excellent golf within walking distance of hotel. Only stayed bed and breakfast which was fine. Short taxi ride into Vilamoura about 5-10 mins. Really good value for money when booking a golf package. Staff very friendly and always happy to help.

Room Tip: Ask for villa with pool view

My chum and I have just returned from our 5th visit to this wonderful hotel. The staff as usual were first class and they go beyond the call of duty. 2 new additions to the staff this year were Marco and Devage who operated the pool bar and their personalities brought the whole pool area alive. We ate at the clubhouse on several occasions and food was good and a nice change from the hotel restaurant, one can also eat in the prime bar so there are 3 different options to choose from. I keep going back to the staff but really its them who make our stay so exceptional, they remember your likes and dislikes and their smiles are genuine. We went down to Vilamoura quite a bit and a taxi only cost 9 euros no matter how many were in it, if we went down during the day we got the hotel courtesy bus free. The hotel has a lovely golf course and the golfers liven the hotel up in the evenings so the atmosphere is fun. We will go back next year why would we change when everything we want is in the Vila Sol. There are many lovely restaurants behind the marina so try to explore a bit. Kathleen and Kate

Room Tip: Garden rooms/suites are lovely and spacious and sit in the lovely rural setting with little riverway...

Accommodation fabulous everything you could want in your room.
Pool area beautiful with great pool bar. My husband walks every day and was delighted to find a track he could use. Thought we would miss not staying in the centre of Vilamoura but it was so easy to get a taxi there we actually preferred being outside.
The only one thing we we would like to flag is, in Prime bar there are two leather sofas both my husband and myself had clothes we could only wear once as after sitting on the sofas we had dirty marks on them, my husband flagged this with reception and we wondered if anyone else had this happen but didn't realise how it happened.

We travelled as a group of 12 golfers and was accomodated in 6 garden rooms situated 100 yards from the main hotel building.we were bed and breakfast only.
The rooms were a standard size with the usual ensuite facilities The twin beds were very comfortable.my room 1208 had a fish pond outside the 'balcony'
The breakfasts were first class with every type of meal you could imagine.a lady cooked eggs and wonderful omlettes to order.
The golf courses were in good condition,unfortunately we had heavy rain on the second day which logged the courses abit.
The only down side to staying here(which we were fully aware of)was the location.We used the courtesy bus to Vilamoura each night for our dinners,and returned by taxi with the fare about 10 euros.not too bad between usually 4 of us.On previous golf trips we had stayed at the Don Pedro hotel and was able to walk for our dinner at a time to suit.
On a good note the room safe was completely free.On my earlier holiday in Spain 2 weeks ago i was paying 4 euros per day.Another plus was the use of a locker for golf clubs situated just behind the reception area.This was wonderful as you did not have to carry your clubs back to your room.The best bit was the price ,it was free although when first asking for it i was told "yes sir 50 euros per day".It was their little joke,and to finish all the staff were polite and very kind.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are all single storey and face south.

This was our second year at Pestana Vila Sol ( 10 golfers ) and we find it a great base. Had a little more time this year so had a few hours round the pool and used the jacuzzi which was cracking to soothe the bones after 3 rounds of golf. Staff are very nice and the barmen make a mean bloody mary. Breakfast is really good too. Have noticed they tend to put groups of male golfers out the way in the garden rooms. We were in 1101 which was well away from the hotel but wasnt really a problem.
The golf was great again, although the greens werent as good as Quinta North which we visited the middle day. Have noticed some people saying the course is average, but it is unfair to make a comparison with other bigger and more expensive resorts. To play 3 or 4 oceanico courses high season, its over £400, just for the golf. For a working man like myself thats too pricey. Whereas 2 rounds at Pestana and 1 at Quinta North 4 nights b and b flights and transfers cost us £450 all in. Holes 3-7 are great; other standouts are the downhill par 3 12th par 5 13th and par 4 18th. Already looking to book next year.
