“Excellent! A master class in hospitality from the moment you land.”

Don’t need to pack anything other then your clothes even if you are travelling with a baby/child. Everything has been taken care of from the charcoal for the barbeque to baby toilet seat. Rui, the owner is a very genuine person, friendly and funny. Pay attention to his sight seeing trip around the area before he drops you, you will know everything you need to.
Apartment is very clean and modern. There is free wifi, a huge selction of movies and ps3 games. There is also a free mobile phone for you to use locally.
Vilamoura itself is posh purpose built resort next to Quarteira the main town. Vilamoura is excellent for cycling (provided by Rui including a child seat) with dedicated cycle tracks. There are other tracks as well and infact you can do the whole 14km trip to Albufeira along Falesia beach. If you haven’t cycled for a while this is a really nice place to start again. The pool was functional but cold (will not be a problem from june to sep). There is heated indoor council pool and gym facilities nearby which are better than what I have seen in Britain
Two beaches, one just outside the apartment and another slightly better one about 20min walk and 8min to cycle. Loads of places to eat, the ones at the back of marina were cheaper and better. The best food we had was at Piri Piri and A Sangria, both are authentic Portuguese food and 5-7min walk from the apartment. Piri Piri is really informal and child friendly.
Overall, I will not hesitate to come back to this apartment again, we had a lovely stress free time courtesy of Rui.

Let me just start start out by saying that it was a really a pleasure to meet you all. You were wonderful guests and nothing makes us more happy and proud than hearing that you have enjoyed your stay so much and that the apartment exceeded your expectations. We always try to think about and consider every detail, especially when we have guests travelling with children. It was a shame that the weather wasn’t good enough for swimming in the pool or the sea… but that’s another good reason for you to come over again soon. We were also delighted to hear that you tried our restaurant & cateries recommendations and that you felt the Portuguese friendliness and exceptional food. Thank you so much for sharing and rewarding our apartment and us with such an amazing review.

“Fantastic Apartment and owner”
Reviewed 2 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

We decided to have a nice relaxing week away over the Christmas period after a very stressful year. We were greeted by Rui who is the most friendliest person you could ever meet. After a small tour of the area we were taken back to the apartment. There was a welcome pack waiting for us, food and drink in the fridge and the apartment is to die for. This was our 3rd stay in Vilamoura and the best by far. I would recommend this apartment to anyone. It is very spacious, clean and has all the amenities you require. The shops area a 2 minute walk away as is the beach and they have a fantastic fish market as well. There was lots of information left in the apartment for places to visit and Rui was more than helpful before we arrived over there with all the information we needed. It is very much like home from home but the views are slightly different at home ! Thank you Rui for making our holiday a very nice relaxing one from start to finish and look forward to seeing you next year

Thank you Rui for making this a very enjoyable holiday. The apartment
was lovely and it was great that you picked us up at the airport and showed us around the resort. We really appreciated the welcome pack and also your restaurant recommendations. We really enjoyed eating out at O Arco restaurant. Happy Xmas and all the best for 2012.

Dear Janet & Martin, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our holiday apartment following your recent short break with us. Also, thank you for your feedback regarding the mattress. We purchased this mattress this November. We just wanted a more comfortable mattress to replace what we had, but now we realized it’s a bit hard. A new firm but still comfortable mattress is already on the way. We hope to welcome you back next year. Thanks again.
