Vilanova Resort in Montechero, Albufeira

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 12, 2009

Period: September 2009.

Vilanova Resort has appartments, villas and studios. The villas surround the garden with swimmingpool. So do the appartments and studios, but their located kind on the side. Still: if you're on 'garden view' side, you have view of the garden and swimming pool.

The appartments on the other side, street side, are located just above what is called "The Strip": very loud at night, but in the shadow until later the day. Nice for having a 'cooler' breakfast on the balcony. Balconies on garden side have sun from sunrise until dawn.

The appartments are very well equipped. I've never seen anything like it. Like kitchenware: everything is there. Kitchen also contains a microwave, a fridge with freezer, a toaster and a stove with oven.
Beds are quite bed though. In the studio it's just a matras on an elevated piece of the floor. Very small also.
I stayed a week in Vilanova and my linen and towels were not changed in between. That's quite poor, I think. I thought they would change it once, but they didn't.

Airco is only in appartment/studio block 4 and working flawlessly.

Reception desk is very friendly. I came 'round quite a few times and they were always willing to help. Even when I asked to switch from the street side to garden side.

There were a lot of larger groups when I stayed here.
One disadvantage, but I guess it happens at every place: people put their towels on the deck chairs early in the morning, as the reserve their spot. Very annoying.
But again: you can put your towel in the well kept grass surrounding the pool and even get a spot under the trees, it's so big!

Location:
Vilanova is located directly at 'The Strip'. Close to the main road - where the ATM is and close to the touristic train on wheels brings you to Albufeira town.
To the beach it's about 750 mtr - about a 10 minute walk in my speed, but never longer than 15 mins I think. From the beach back to the appartment it's very steep: at least the part until the roundabout, which is, I think, about 400 mtrs. Take it slow when it's warm of make sure you're in good health! :)

Unique Quality: Pool is large, with a green garden (check google maps how green it is compared to the other resorts) with enough trees to find shadows.

Kitchen is well equipped.

Directions: 50 meters south from the main road "Avenida dos Descrobimentos" in Montechoro, Plaia da Oura.
