Vilamor Apartments Hotel
Ranked #6 of 19 Speciality Lodging in Alvor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Just back from our 7th visit to Vilamor apts. As usual, we had a great holiday. This place is ideal for families, young couples and older couples. Rooms are spotless, cleaned regularly. Any problems, just go to reception and Elizabeth will look after you. The Bar /Restaurant on site is brilliant. Good food and drink(Magners on draught). Joe, Pedro and Lisa are so friendly. Great atmosphere at night. Bar stays open late, but no problem with noise as everyone is brought inside after 1.00am. So many people we know return every year. Small complex with 42 apts, but lovely pool and gardens. Alvor only 10 minutes away with great restaurants. Try India Hut, Dal Vinos, El Toro. Plenty of bars also but we always come back to Vilamor for drinks, great craic. Nothing bad to say about Vilamor, going again next year, can't wait.

I have stayed in these apts for the last time!!! I used to be a regular, every August for 2 weeks. up until last year it was a nice place to stay, a very old fashioned place that's badly needs updating, but still a nice place to stay.
We arrived last year for our normal two weeks and were greeted by a swarm of flies in the bar, It was late when we arrived so the light was on in the pool, as we were walking by the pool to get to our apt my husband noticed some dirt in the pool, on closer inspection it was POO, He immediately went up to Joe in the bar and let him know, Joe's reply was "the guy who looks after cleaning the pool has gone to bed, he will look after it in the morning". I knew it was going to be the holiday from hell from this moment!!! The next morning my husband woke early to find "the guy who looks after the pool" on his hands & knees pouring bleach into the pool - maybe this was their way of cleaning the pool.
I would not return to these apts and I would not recommend them to anyone.

I have stayed at these apartments on numerous occasions and Love it!! Joe ,Pepe and everyone there are fantastic. Customer service is second to none, fantastic atmosphere in this accomodation. Apartments are a little tired but clean. If you are looking for somewhere family friendly and safe for the kids then go to Vilamor. Food is great in the bar and I would reccomend the Portugese Steaks, great Holidays we have had here, cant wait to go back this year!

Well, what can I say?? we were told we were staying here after our initial hotel booking 'went astray'!!
Both in our 40's and a cheeky week away to see the world superbikes was the aim.
Well, we were made to feel like royalty!!
Fabulous Geeta on reception as we arrived at 12 midnight was there to greet us with a smile. Bar open, and friendly staff.
Yes the rooms were typically portugese, dated but massive!! 2 floors, 2 ensuite rooms, downstairs toilet, well equipped kitchen, 2 balconies.................................
Clean towels 3 times in the week and sheets changed once.
9 minute walk to Alvor, (yes we challenged ourselves) where we found the chill out bar, and Lionel (leonel) with his 1 euro drinks...........
We also found a tiny bar called 38 1/2 where we had the most beautiful, very inexpensive food, cooked beautifully and service with a smile from a lovely lady.
Yes, you could've complained and been dissapointed and yes we've done the 4 and 5 ** but to just be relaxed in a clean, friendly apartment was great.
We were allowed to keep our room til 7pm as our flight was later. (Out of season tho)
Yes, i'd go back, no I didnt mind the walk to Alvor, no we didnt have noisy teenagers running around but we did have an elderley Irish couple who used expletives after every other word and it would've been easy for some to take offence. (Nothing to do with the place tho)
Gardens were well maintained and lovely little pool.
Go!! you'd be surprised, dont have high expectations but do have a relaxed holiday with whoever you're with.
Very beautiful, friendly resort.

Our apt was lovely and well kept and cleaned daily by the very friendly cleaning ladies who made a big fuss of our little children. Our bed was very comfortable. One major problem with this lovely little complex is the complete lack of security at night. Our holiday was marred by at least 4/5 very noisy nights caused mainly by teenagers allowed to run riot through the complex until very late and some were given their own apartments - parents not staying in the next apartments - surprise surprise. Wouldn't come again in high season for this reason. Reception ladies were lovely and tried to help but an impossible situation for them when parents not bothered by their children's actions. Best not to stay in an apartment near the bar/restaurant in high season if you have young children esp.

Room Tip: Book an apt away from bar /restaurant during high season
