“So nice!:-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

I booked this apartment last minute online and glad i did. When we got there the staff greeted us and were very helpful throughout our stay. Our apartment was on the ground floor which was handy due to luggage. I would recommend this is you have buggies ect. Our apartment was lovely and clean and very very big! There was a sofa bed and another bed in the cupboard so it would suit many more people.There is a proper kitchen so you can cook. There is also a fridge/freezer so you can do shopping and stock up. There is a shower/bath too. The maid comes every 3 days and we had plenty of towels ect. The pool is nice and big bit deep at the end so be careful! We ate in the restaurant most mornings for breakfast and it was nice! The 4 cheese pizza is so so yummy!!!! I came home at 1am and the man at the bar kindly made one for me even though the kitchen was closed! We walked into town everyday its about 15mins straight walk.My card wouldnt work when i tried to pay the first day and the staff were so laid back and relaxed. They could of easily made me feel bad and akward but instead explained where the nearest atm was and to pay anytime before i left no rush! The woman at reception is so nice and helpful. I would stay here again!

Just got back after spending 2 weeks at the Vilamor.

The hotel was clean,the staff were excellent, friendly and helpful and I didn't lose any sleep to rowdy Irish people in the bar. The only negative was that its a long walk back from town/beach with younger children

First stayed here by chance about 8 years ago and have been back every year since (twice this year). While it may not be for everyone, it certainly is for us (you know who you are Norway). It is small enough that everyone knows everyone else but large enough that you have your own space. We have made friends there with many families who will now be lifelong friends and meet up with them here every year and at intervals in between. Ok, it may seem a bit dated but it was built a number of years ago, the apartments are large, clean, well maintained and well fitted out (credit to Elizabeth, Geeta and the cleaning ladies).
The bar (Joe, Pedro & Lisa), what can I say, it's my favourite place in Portugal, is well run with great drink & food. All tastes and whims are catered for. if they don't have it, just tell Joe or Pedro and they will get it in for you (both food & drink). This is where the fun happens, it's loud, lively and non stop laughter. Very few visit only once due to the friendliness, location and all round craic. The hotel next door only enhances the Vilamor, just take a look over at the vast, souless entity that it is.
The Vilamor is run by a family for families, Alvor is a beautiful village with many great restaurants & bars but as mentioned in a previous review, somehow we always end up in the Vilamor bar at the end of each night.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the Joe might put up the prices !!!
Looking forward to July 2014..

My Husband Brendan and I and our five children have just returned from a three week stay in the Vilamor. It was the most relaxing hoilday we have ever had with the children. we found the duplex apartment we stayed in both comfortable and spacious, equipped with everything from a washing machine to a tin opener. The pool area was very relaxing and anything you need Elizabeth in reception was more than helpful. Joe and Pedro behind the bar were very friendly and knew all the children by name in the first hour. If you are looking for a fiendly family atmosphere the Vilamor is the place to go, we will definetly be back!!

Returned here again after they built the large hotel next door and it hasn't detracted from the charm of the apts as I thought it would, but it does mar the view from the back balcony a little. Booked apt privately and stayed in a duplex unit covering 1st & 2nd floors. Reception looked after the apt and brought us fresh linen and cleaned it regularly. As stated a little dated but huge and the lady that cleans does a really good job. It was lovely and quiet in May but don't think I would fancy it in the height of the season with lots of kiddies! Couldn't fault it and would like to return next year. The only thing that let it down was the weather, never known it so cold in May but luckily we had a couple of heaters in the apt.

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.
