Pestana Vila Sol is truly amazing. At first I assumed it was a hotel primarily for golfers but thats not the case. Pestana caters to a whole range of guests. First and foremost the hotel staff are brilliant, they are constantly smiling and on hand to deal with any query you may have. The entire resort is beautiful and set out for easy navigation. There are different parts to the resort where each part provides you with a different experience/feeling. I personally stayed in a Villa and had an amazing time. There is a indoor swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, a huge main pool with a swim-up bar and then a kiddies pool. The resort itself offers food and drinks and theres also the clubhouse which is 1-2 minutes away which offers mouthwatering food which you can eat whilst overlooking the golf courses.

We booked into the Four Season's as we usually stay in the Hilton close by in Vilamoura but knew of the Four Seasons and wanted to try it. Being a Four Season's we expected a high standard but the hotel was disappointing, very dated and understaffed. The rooms were large and nice but just in real need of updating and our bathroom really smelt which was so unpleasant. Some staff were nice but many were very short and rude and just not enough staff. Only one lifeguard for three pools (impossible to see all areas and they had lots of kids in so quite unsafe) and a nice little pool bar but it just opened infrequently and one morning one staff member joked it should be open but no one had arrived to work there that day. All in all it could be so much better, the Four Season's I'm surprised has not made improvements.

Located 15 minutes walk up the hill from the Marina, this complex is well positioned if you are happy to include walking in your list of relaxing things to do on holiday. The hotel has two pools, the main one is more family orientated with a children's pool and is where the bar and restaurant are situated. The second is much more peaceful, has no bar but is only 100m away so easy to flit to the bar as desired. We had a pool view apartment on the ground floor, which opened onto a balcony with sun beds and steps down to the pool. This is an ideal set up and worth trying for.
The nearest supermarket is ten minutes walk, the Marina is fifteen minutes ish and The Old Village is fifteen to twenty minutes walk. Vilamoura is clean and well maintained with a wide variety of restaurants and bars. We also visited the Roman villa near the Marina, which is fascinating.
An enjoyable hotel and location.

"Basic comfort but really nice and quiet location"
A really nice villa in a quiet area with comfortable beds.
We were really missing a washing machine and a larger drying rack.
The fridge and TV were old. No freezer either, but I could see them changing appliances in the villa next to us.
Overall however we spent 2 really nice weeks there.
The place is 3km from the sea so would recommend a car, there's also a lot to see around.
White-washed, block-style villas close to Old Course fairways comprise this resort, which is 10 km (6 miles) west of Albufeira.More
A modern resort created in the 1970s, Vilamoura is famous for its marina and several championship golf courses. What it lacks in local character it makes up for in facilities as one of Europe’s largest leisure complexes, including most water sports. By night the marina is the lively hub with bars and eateries for all budgets, plus a casino and nightclubs. The adjacent beach of Praia da Falésia is recommended.
