“Good for the Price”
Reviewed 17 September 2007

Stayed here between 3-13 September 2007 and enjoyed my stay very much. We had a 1 bed villa, which was very clean and had everything you needed for your stay.
Area is quite quiet so you should always be able to get plenty of sleep if you need it, and the Marina is not too far away. A taxi there is 5 euros, but it is just about within walking distance (~45 minute)
Pool is good, well maintained and plenty of space around it for sunbathing.
Mini supermarket is only 5 minutes away, which bakes fresh bread all day long.
Would definitely stay there again.

(one piece of advice - if you are planning on visiting any Waterparks, book them with a tour operator at the Marina instead of booking a transfer from the hotel - the park bus services all stop directly outside the hotel and you will save yourself a lot of money)

Stayed for one week at these wonderful appartments in July this year. Booked Prado Do Golfe and ended up in Hotel Do Golfe. Studio appartment was comfortable, Roomy, & cleaned every day. Staff were attentive food was good. Only slight trouble having to wait quite a while for a taxi to the marina on an evening.
Would definitely go back

Having booked a great value package on Expedia, I was a little dubious about the quality of the accommodation, but I am pleased to say that Prado Do Golf was superb

We had a two bed room villa (having booked a 1 bed apartment), which was spacious, well equiped with all the basics, and spotlessly cleaned.

The bar was basic, but very friendly staff, cheap drinks and great food which was cheaper than anywhere else we ate...so what more can you ask?!

Pool was also well maintained and clean.

I would not hesistate to recommend Prado Do Golf to friends and family, and I would certainally return there if visiting the algarve again.

Stayed here April 2006. Apartment was badly in need of being modernised and had a musty smell - particularly in the bedroom. It was reasonably clean though not spotless. The kitchen had the absolute basics and to be honest I wasn't too comfortable cooking in it, but we ate out every night anyway. The beds were awful - really hard.

This place is located at the Old Course, about 40 minutes walk from the marina. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The pool area has bar complete with pool table, "Pepsi" tables and chairs (tacky) and played music all day, although it wasn't too loud.

If you are on a very tight budget then this place might be OK, but it is not quite at the standard I have previously experienced in Vilamoura. There are lots of places to stay in Vilamoura - you can afford to be fussy.

We have just come back from the Prado Do Golf. Our apartment was nice as it had recently been modernised. But some of the other apartments were a bit dated!

Lots of nice golf courses around there! I played on the driving range and it was so hot!

Not many places to eat around the Prado do golf so you would have to go to the marina. To get to the marina you have to get a taxi it costs about 5 euros.

Had a great time and the weather was fantastic!!

We have just come back from Prado do golf our apartment had been modenised and was excellent. Beautiful bathroom. Air con in living room and bedroom. Kitchen had a dishwasher microwave toaster and full size cooker. Tv with some sky channels. Other room their were in need of a complete refurbishment so be aware. We were lucky!

The pool area is rather tatty and not very nice but over the road the hotel their had a good sized pool.

The bar was also not that good all right for a beer and then it would be time to move on.

My husband played on three of the golf courses and he really enjoyed them.

The marina is nice but very busy and the meals are quite expensive.

We got back from the Prado do Golf a few days ago and we really enjoyed our time at this resort. I have to say, it looks ok on the photo's published on expedia but it really is better than they suggest. The resort is very green, the apartment blocks are attractive and the whole place is generally quite nice to look at. Our apartment was very well maintained and spacious for a one bedroom, and we had satellite TV with lots of good, watchable channels which was something of a bonus for those post pool lazy moments!

The poolside is clean and well managed with a bar that does good food with friendly staff. The only small criticism I would make re the pool area is that there arent enough umbrellas - not a problem if you're a sun monkey like me but this proved to be an issue for people with small children who needed some shade (and my other half who doesnt like to fry!). Talking of children, the resort pretty much filled up during our last few days there - which is what you'd expect at this time of year. As a 30 something couple who dont have kids yet, I would book a little earlier (maybe last wk of June/first wk of July) next time around.

There's a bus stop right outside the reception area which will take you down to the marina and beach for around 1 Euro, although it only runs until about half past 7 in the evening. A taxi ride is just under 5 Euro's though and is a very easy way to get into the centre - reception will phone you one or the guys in the bar.

Vilamoura Marina is very picturesque but not cheap! It costs you about the same to eat out there as it does at home. The beach is beautiful and I'd recommend the Beach Club restuarant there for a nice meal out. We also visited Quarteria which is about 1km away from Vilamoura and that is much more of a seasidey resort, if a little run down.

On the whole, we really had a great time at Prado do Golf. They've had a few problems with break in's apparently but we just took extra care to lock up and we didnt ever feel unsafe in any way.

I would definitely go back - the apartment was great value for money and the location of the resort worked really well for us. Enjoy!
