Looking for some advice regarding picking a hotel in Vilamoura. We've picked Vilamoura due to the short flight time from Dublin and it appears to be one of the nearest resorts to Faro airport.
We are planning a week long trip from 7th September this year. Our daughter will be 3 years of age then and it will be her first sun holiday.
I like the idea of being near the marina for walks, eating out etc and having easy access to the beach, so was looking at the Tivoli Marina. Would this be a suitable hotel for a 3 year old? if so, any particular type of room recommended? I would hate to arrive and for it to be full of adults and my daughter to be the only noisy toddler there :-)
I guess a lot of our time will involve building sandcastles and the pool - will the weather then still be hot enough for this? In saying that I would rather that the weather wasn't scorching hot for my daughter so could go later in the month if that would be better.
I have also looked at Crowne Plaza but read some reviews / forum posts about certain rooms only being available on the smoking floor. This has confused me a bit when pricing a room as rooms seem to be called different names on different booking websites (we're non smokers). The Lake Resort looks lovely but it's a bit more expensive.
Any thoughts / suggestions welcome.
