This is a charming village outside inside it's less charming but nice anyway. We spent there two weeks and were satisfied. The ladies in the reception were helpful and nice. The cleaniness in the apartment could have been better. What is inside depends of the owner, I suppose, ours was quite worn out but suportable. This was low season, October, but in high season I would choose an apartment away from the vicinity of restaurants and bars as they can be quite noicy. (This was not our case.)
I must repeat the complaint of lack of WiFi in the area and cash payment should be more clearly indicated when booking the rooms. If you leave the payment to the last moment you may be in trouble.
Pari sanaa suomeksi. Alueelta löytyy hyviä tarjouksia talvikuukausiksi loka-helmikuu. Kannatta etsiä niitä. Varustetaso on suht riittävä ja kylä on viehättävä, vaikka huoneistot voivat olla hyvinkin remontin tarpeessa. Kaikki kuitenkin toimii ja sijainti on hyvä esim. golfareille. Vastaanotosta saa kierroksia hieman edullisempaan hintaan.

Room Tip: Next time I would choose an apartment facing the golf course. Though there's a street then in front of you but it is not too busy.

Just returned from 5 days at the old village, stayed here many times in several apartments. Grounds perfectly kept, staff so friendly in all rental offices and supermarket. Restaurants in general can be quite expensive for evening meals. Offers on for lunchtime I can recommend the sunflower on the marina for lunch. Best cake and coffee is at buondi in one of the back streets of quarteira approx 2 euros . We have been coming to vilamoura for many years and each year improvements are made. Beautiful relaxing place

just returned from a weeks stay in the old village. we were allocated 23A church street a lovely studio with everything you needed for a weeks stay, everything in working order and spotlessly clean.All the staff around the old village from the restaurants to the little on site shop are really pleasant and helpful no moans there. I must say me and my husband loved the fact that we had no maid service for the week we could get up at our leisure and not worry that we were half way through a shower, which usually happens on holiday when you here the maids knocking. I always take extra towels so the fact that there are no towels changed is not a problem, and it takes two minutes to take rubbish to large bins dotted around the village.The old village is so very well kept and really pretty all the pools are spotlessly clean and well ran, there are are some lovely restaurants on site the casa do largo have some really good meal deal offers including a drink. The walk down to the marina is very pleasant and only takes about fifteen minutes. Once down at the marina there are numerous bars and restaurants offering a large range of international dishes. The beeches are just beautiful and you can walk for miles stopping at the odd beach bar for a drink or snack. The Portugal masters was on while we were there so we spent a day watching some top golfers which was great. There are lots of things to do in villamoura apart from golf, there is a big tennis club with an onsite pizza restaurant, bike hire, pony trekking, water sports, fishing, firing range etc. Have already booked up for next year cant wait.

Well, firstly let me echo guitarman47's comments about the Scottish 'lady'. Imagine the worst battleaxe that Coronation Street has ever thrown up and treble it. Customers - except those that fawn over her, are a hindrance. Shame as the cafe is good and the males there are very helpful. Good wifi. Anyway ................ we arrived to a booking shambles. Initially we had booked a two bedroom apartment but changed that to three bedrooms when another friend decided to join us (we were there for the Portugal Masters and to play locally). Whilst we had confirmations of the initial booking, the canx and the three bedroom booking the reception did not. They were helpful in changing our booking to a three bedded but withing three hours we were told that we had to move as that one had 'been rented by the owner'. They moved our items so no real problem and the apartment we eventually ended up in was far superior except for the interiors. Our impressions are that all the apartments here are shabby. The ones we saw were very tired internally. Shame, as the complex is very smart. See my separate review of Princess restaurant. One point of thought ........ they always seemed to want cash and said that the machine wasn't working. I wonder how much of the €€€ taken on rentals actually reaches the owners. Am I being cynical???

On first impressions the Old Village is very clean and attractive. However, after talking to several people, one needs to be careful about choice of apartment--location and state of apartment: it is not as upmarket as it first appears. Our worst experience was the downright rudeness of a Scottish waitress at the Casa do Largo cafe. Having enquired about the 45 minute wait for a sandwich, her attitude was beyond belief together with a face of annoyance for me daring to ask. Full of Brits holidaying or working--upmarket it ain't!!
