Reviewed 7 June 2011

Very nice hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. I was not there for a golfing holiday so it was a little far out from the marina for me. Taxi costs 10 euro to the marina from the hotel. All in a great place with lots of first class facilities. My room was directly opposite the pond and the frogs were making quite a noise. I had no issue with this due to the AC going but others may.

We have been to this hotel many times in the last few years. We used to go to Dona Filipa but wanted somewhere more modern and Vila Sol is a great alternative. If you have a family then the garden suite is perfect. We have a 6 year old and the garden is perfect for him to play football, run around etc. The best aspect, I feel, is the staff. They truly cannot do enough. Alfredo Tavares, the front office manager has always been extremely helpful. It is also refreshing to return year after year and have numerous staff members remember us. Great hotel, great service, great breakfasts......

We stayed at Pestana Vila Sol for a weekend and it was a trully good experience! The room was large and comfortable. The food at Club House was good with good views from the golf course. At the check in the employees were very helpful and friendly. The swimming pool was very nice also. The decoration of the villas is very nice and the lake at the entrance is superb! Recommended to a nice stay in Algarve!

We stayed in one of the apartments at Sunset Villas, Vila Sol. We booked very last minute direct with the owner. On arriving there we realised how big this complex is. It is made up of the hotel,Sunset Villas, Vila Sol Golf and Palmyra. However what I didn't realise it that the swimming pools for each of these complexes are not able to be used which limited us to the one small pool outside our apartment.
The apartment itself was modern and had everything you needed. Due to the time of the year there were very few people at the complex and it often seemed like a ghost town. This was a real shame as we thought there would be a lot of kids for our son to play with as he is an only child. However even with a lack of other residents there was a road behind the apartment which seems to be used as a cut through and therefore at times you could hear road noise. The weather was not great for the week we were there and so couldn't sit or go in the pool, too cold! We therefore wanted to go into Villamoura and the marina. Problem was that it is a 15min car ride away and without hiring a car you are almost stranded. It takes nearly 25 mins to walk to the only shop on site. Therefore you should really discount this complex if you don't drive or don't want too. We had to get taxis everywhere which seemed to range in price from day to day, even with the same company. A return trip cost approx 14 euros. There is only one restaurant, an Irish bar, within the complex which is open to everyone and again that is a 25min walk away.The food was pretty good but nothing special. I really love Portugal but don't think this resort really allows you to fully appreciate where you are as there are no views of the sea.

We stayed at the Lazy Days villa on the complex for a few nights. Overall,very good. Mine hosts,Ruth and Paul made a big effort. Food good ,wine excellent although Paul can sometimes take the 'let me taste the wine first' a bit far-and there's not much left in the bottle after he's got his chops round it. Everything was glatt,which was good as we were kosher for pizza
Maybe best to go when Paul isn't there

Room Tip: Book early to avoid disappointment

All four of us enjoyed our stay at this hotel, which was far more relaxing than staying in the centre of Vilamoura. The staff were excellent, as was the choice at breakfast. We had balcony rooms overlooking the pond which had fantastic reflections of the trees. The only problem with this was the noisey frogs at night - so take your ear plugs and enjoy!
