My wife and I have just returned from Parque Mourabel, Vilamoura, Portugal and stayed in a superior one bedroom apartment which was fully refurbished incuding air conditioning . This is the 4th time we have stayed here in the past 16 months, having booked each time through lowcostholidays.com. On each occasion we just seem to like it more. The apartments are larger than average with a well equipped kitchenette including a full oven/grill with halogen hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, juicer and fridge/freezer.
The hotel is ideally situated for a quiet relaxing or golfing holiday. The swimming pool is set in a lovely garden area.
There is a "Jafers" supermarket within about 100metres; ideal if you are self catering.
The hotel restaurant is quite good, with reasonable prices, although we went to the family run 'A Carpa' restaurant (our favourite) at the end of the road, for dinner almost every evening. Booking seems essential here although there are other bars and restaurants close by.
The centre of the resort, marina and beaches are about 30 minutes walk through the beautifully landscaped gardens (in the centre of the main road!) and well worth the walk.
The free hotel shuttle bus will take you to Falesia or Marina beaches
(3 times daily). There are also regular tourist road trains, and taxis to the Marina are 4-5 euros .
We will be returning soon!More
