Perfect Setting

Watching the sun set over the sails from the yachts in the marina, from one of the marina-fronted restaurants or strolling along the long sandy beach, Vilamoura has everything you could wish for in a break. Bars, cafes, shops and luxury hotels all in a compact area make it an ideal break for all ages. A lovely place to stay and have been here many times, would highly recommend for couples, friends and families.

villamoura was very vibrant all day long. something for everyone

although the resort can be expensive there are places that are great value for money and offer great food and lively atmospheres. Nosolo Pizzeria we found was always buzzin . its right in the heart of the marina and has a fantastic array of foods on offer at very reasonable prices. as a family of four with two older teengers a typical meal with drinks was about Euro80.Also try the restaurants on the squres behind the marina. They offer great local food at even better prices . Typical60 Euro. If you want swanky try the Mayflower on the Marina. its a few Euros more than the others but the food really is fantastic!

The best thing about my stay was ...

something for every pocket.
