We have just returned from a ten night stay with my wife and two kids. We stayed in the two bedroom appartments which are in a self contained block about a three minute drive from the main hotel. We stayed on a half board package which included breakfast and dinner in the main hotel.
There is a free shuttle bus available on the request which will take you anywhere in the resort as well as to the beach at Vilamoura.
The appartments are well equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, fridge/freezer, all cutlery and utensils) and perfect for those with small children. There is a large lounge (with a TV with CBeebies and Sky Sports and DVD player) as well as a communal pool which the kids loved. The appartments were cleaned regularly (but not a weekends).
Food in the Green Pines restaurant was excellent with an exensive breakfast buffet and an evening buffet with a different theme each evening. The wine list was very reasonably priced for a 5* hotel (18 - 45 euro).
The only disappointing aspects was the kids club. Although the facility are extremely good the staff were a little too hands off leaving the kids either to watch TV or colour in pictures. Compared to other hotels we have stayed in the staff could have been a little more proactive.
Overall a great set up for those with young children.
