Four Seasons Vilamoura

Vilamoura, Faro District, Algarve, Portugal

The Four Seasons Vilamoura (not part of the luxury Four Seasons brand) is an upper-middle-range time-share property located adjacent to a golf course, but a bit far from the beach and marina. Decor is a little dated throughout, but the 114 self-catering apartments are clean and spacious, with full kitchens, washer/dryers, and balconies. With several large outdoor and indoor pools, three restaurants serving good food, daily activities for all ages, and a spa, the property is a good year-round destination for families, couples, and golfers. Free parking is convenient for those exploring the area by car, but there are fees for in-room Wi-Fi and for use of the kids' club. 


Pinhal da Marina

Vilamoura, Faro District, Algarve, Portugal

Pinhal da Marina is a friendly mid-range apartment complex geared towards families and couples seeking some peace and quiet. Its 128 units range from Studios to Three-Bedroom Apartments, all featuring full, well-equipped kitchens, spacious patios with loungers, and air-conditioning. Decor is dated throughout, but all rooms are clean, and housekeeping is available six days a week. Three outdoor pools, a kids’ club, a playground, and great sports facilities keep children busy and entertained. The restaurant has a short international menu, as well as a bar area and outdoor seating, and there are plenty of other dining options in the marina, about a 15-minute walk away.


Hotel Apartamentos do Golf

Vilamoura, Faro District, Algarve, Portugal

Apartamento do Golfe is a mid-range hotel offering good value a short drive from Vilamoura’s marina. Its 59 Studios, One-, and Two-Bedroom Apartments feature basic kitchenettes, living areas with sofa beds, and balconies. Decor and amenities are basic and there is a fee for Wi-Fi, but rates are competitive year-round, and units are clean. The pool is a lovely spot for a quiet day, and the restaurant serves decent international cuisine in a cute dining room with large windows. The location near several golf courses is convenient for golfers, and the hotel offers free shuttle service to the lively marina -- but those looking to spend a lot of time at the beach or marina may want to look elsewhere.
