The Residences at Victoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 January 2013

1st time in our lives we decided to head abroad for Christmas - so I chose the Residences at Victoria for our family of 4 (2 six year olds) and we stayed from 22nd Dec 2012 for 1 week. The accommodation and service was outstanding - the 2 bedroom apartment looked over the golf course and was appointed to a very high standard - exceptionally comfortable - fixtures and fittings of a very high standard and very well maintained - no shortcuts. We had maid service every day and the apartment was left immaculate every single day. Obviously being the low season it was very quiet and the 5* affiliated Tivoli Hotel next door was closed - so no restaurants etc within walking distance - but we had a car so no problems and Vilamoura has many options 5-10 mins drive away. I would imagine come say Easter the options for eating etc would increase significantly. Staff were all extremely friendly, professional and courteous. We had a great week break with 1 week of unbroken sun with no rain and temps in the range of 17-20 C every day - v different to Ireland at Christmas. In short highly recommended & we will be back .......

Room Tip: All apartments are appointed to the same high & exceptional standard !!

Exquisite fit and finish that will appeal to those after a manicured paradise, similar to what one would expect in Dubai or Malibu drive.

Strongly recommended provided:

-You have a hire car at your disposal.

-You appreciate having a beautifully equipped pied à terre to explore the Algarve.

-You can live without wifi in your flat (it is available in the reception).

-You don’t want crowds. this place is a five minute drive from the marina which is the hub of town.

-You’re nuts about golf. These serviced apartments straddle a gorgeous golf course that has held multiple global tournaments.

-You’re not a party animal. This place is catered to sober couples and well-heeled families.

We were originally due to stay at the Tivoli Victoria during a brief visit to look at property sales in the golfing area. Due to the hotel closing for winter over this weekend, we took a offer to stay at both the Tivoli Marina initially and then the Residences.
These apartments are fantastic. We stayed in 102C which is a 2 bed property. All rooms are of a very good size. The apartments are all furnished the same, good quality and tasteful furnishings.
All necessary facilities are on site for adults and children.
Compared to our visit to Vilamoura in August, it is much quieter and with the hotel being closed, there are not as many facilities to hand.
Perfect for golfers with the Victoria Golf course on site. During the winter months would recommend a car and that you have provisions to hand as there are no nearby shops. If you are after a peaceful escape from everyone/everywhere this is the place!
Other than that summer would be perfect with everything you need as well as a courtesy shuttle bus to the marina
Some of these apartments are for sale for own use or rental. If you rent them out they are completely maintained by the hotel so no worries there
Reception staff were very friendly

Room Tip: All rooms are the same so cannot compare. If you travel in winter, have food/provisions on hand. The...

Our family stayed at the residences for a week at the start of October.The apartments are high spec and very well looked after and cleaned by the staff. Any extra requests we had , like booking restaurants , getting mattress toppers etc were always efficiently dealt with. Its within a gated community that has security , so no late night noise here ! The courtesy bus runs to Vilamoura 6 or 7 times a days so you get the best of both worlds .....The hotel accross the road is excellent and the breakfasts superb with everything you can imagine for breakfast including pancakes ,omelettes to order and champagne.You can also use the spa area , pool etc free of charge if at the residences.We would recommend this to all.

These apartments completely exceeded our expectations. They were spacious, clean and well decorated. The kitchens are also very well equiped - unlike many holiday apartments I have stayed in. The staff were great - the reception staff were extremely helpful and the bar staff were great. The pina coladas in the pineapples are delicious!
The resort is a little out of town and while there is a shuttle down to the marina it is quite infrequent. Taxis are easy to catch though and the staff recommended a couple of companies who were reliable and very reasonably priced and so it wasn't a problem at all. All in all, I'd highly recommend these apartments if you are visiting Villamoura.

Just come back from the residences,the staff were so helpful.the view from our 2nd floor 3 bed, apartment over the golf course was great.But the noise from the people above was awful, chairs scraping across the floor, and the constant thud of people walking about from 6am in the morning was horrible!!.It is to far to walk to the nearest shop for food ect,you will need a car to get there.The shutters on the french windows stopped working on the second day, so blocked our view,it was soon looked at by the engineers,but not fixed,so we left them in the open position for 8 days.Having said all this we had a great holiday,Vilamoura is a great place to be,also Quarteira next town. Check out Quarteirauncovered.com

Room Tip: Go for highest rooms overlooking the golf course with a sun shade over the balcony.
