“Couldn't ask for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

I spent 4 nights at Browns with family and had a wonderful time. Having stayed there before, I knew of the high standards to expect and I was not disappointed. The rooms are spacious and clean, offering a private terrace with sunbeds if the pool area is too busy. The grounds are well-maintained and offer many opportunities for sports and leisure activities, the outdoor pool and large playground also means children can be kept entertained for hours! Staff are friendly and helpful and the clubhouse always offers a warm welcome. Although there is plenty to do within the grounds, Vilamoura marina is only a 5 minute taxi ride away if you wish to explore the local area in greater detail. I would recommend Browns for a family holiday or a short break with friends, particularly if you enjoy being active and playing sports! I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

We had an amazing time at Browns. We were there for a 4 days, and wish we had stayed for 2 weeks instead! First of all, the place looks lovely. Freshly painted walls (inside and out!), clean, and well-situated. We were greeted by super friendly staff that helped us with our luggage, and got us settled in record time.
Also, the villas are amazing. It was great to stay in a location that truly felt like home. It had the cozy atmosphere of your own home (but the convenience of a 5 star hotel), and a great little kitchen so you could cook for yourself, if you like. The showers had INCREDIBLE water pressure, I wish we had that in my apartment at home :)
The pool (though a little cold) was great, and large enough to get some good laps in, but also great for just relaxing in. If that one proved too cold, there was also an indoor one, so there was no reason not to be swimming! The steam room and sauna were also great. Clean, well-managed, and of course, extremely relaxing.
Browns also has a bar and grill that serves great food, I especially liked the burger and the caprese/pesto panini!
The location was also fantastic. A 15 minute drive to the beach, or downtown Loule, and only a 40 minute drive to Faro airport.
We're already planning our return trip, this time for 2 weeks, we hope! I highly recommend this location for people looking to stay somewhere that is clean, comfortable, has friendly staff, and is in a central location. Two thumbs up!

Stayed closed to browns with a large group from my family ages from 6 months to 50 and i was disgusted at the welcome we got when we decided to head to browns, one of my party had found a glass bottle on the grass verge outside that she lifted inside to be binned on seeing her bringing this inside we were asked to leave as the girl(blonde hair) behind the bar had thought we were bringing in are own drink she was rude and aggressive. After the confusion was sorted we gladly finished are drinks and took are custom else were. I have friends and family staying in this area all year round and i will be making it clear to them to stay away.

We had a mix up with our booking in a different complex and were changed to browns instead and we were delighted once we arrived. We had 4 adults and 2 children. The villa was clean and spacious. The area out the back was perfect for the children, gardens well shaded and plenty of space for them. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Complex was very secure.

We had a lovely two weeks with Browns. Clean, superb facilities and grounds. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The villa was clean and comfortable but are becoming in need of a bit of cosmetic work to update them. The pool lovely and relaxing even at busy times, unfortunately the pool bar was never open even though the complex was full and a sign telling people not to reserve empty sun beds for the whole day is needed. The sports bar is welcoming and relaxing, the food was acceptable but not outstanding. We had a pleasant stay and would return again.

My friends have a villa just round the corner from Browns so we tend to be regular customers for either a couple of beers or a lazy evening meal, but this sporting complex is also great for a game of Badmington.
The Staff are helpful and will always try to accommodate out of the ordinary requests.
The Bar has some very nice red wines for you to sample over Dinner - which can be a 2 course special or A La Carte in the restaurant - I've spotted famous Footballers in this complex

Room Tip: Opt for a room at the back of the complex as the front has the Bar which can be noisy in the evening...
