Apartment in Vila Sol Golf Resort, Vilamoura, Algarve - 20 Minute Walk To Vilamoura Marina And Beach
About Neil Jeffrey
I was born in 1970, I'm married to Sue and we have 2 children. We love the Algarve and bought our apartment in 2008. The apartment was bought primarily as an investment, not a holiday home but having such a wonderful apartment, in the sun and in such a lovely location we find ourselves visiting much more often than we ever intended. We hope you will enjoy your time in our apartment as much as we do. Our children were born in 2001 and 2004 and love coming here. The central pool and gardens area is a great area for the kids and as it is members only, access is very secure so it is a really safe place for the children to play.

Why Neil Jeffrey chose Quarteira
The reason we chose this area is mainly because it was well known to us. We had been to Vilamoura on several occasions on family holidays and I have been on several golfing holidays. As a family man and a golfer I don't think I could have found a better location.
What makes this Apartment unique
It's so handy to the airport. Just 20 minutes from Faro airport and there are at least 20 great golf courses within a 30 minute drive.

Good value apartment
We had a good stay in Neil's apartment. The living areas are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped.
The bed linen and covers needs renewing and there is a real issue with the electrical trip switch, meaning that having the oven and any other major appliance turned on causes the trip to keep going off.
However, these issues didn't detract from an enjoyable stay, the electrical issue is an inconvenience but could be resolved.
Spacious has everything you need
Lovely clean apartment nice and spacious for us as a family of 5, only problem we had was our sons bedroom let a lot of light in a black out blind or curtains would sort it
Good value apartment
Overall the apartment is very good value for money.
We found a couple of things missing compared to other apartments we have stayed at in Vila sol i.e there was no safe or wifi in the apartment, although internet is listed on the facilities this relates to wifi at the pool bar.
The 2nd bedroom could really do with a much better blind or curtain as it faces the road and receives the early morning sun.
The sun umbrella on the terrace had clearly seen better days and was virtually unusable.
But for the price we paid it was very clean and in a great location.
Just a little TLC and it would be 5 stars.
Clean, comfortable and well appointed. Excellent location.
Everything you need
No major issues, a few minor niggles. Some blinds were missing from the verticals so not making the property private from the street. Some large cracks in the glass, although not an issue, it was unsightly. The apartment was just a bit tired. But overall, it had everything we needed and these minor points did not detract from our holiday.
Vilamoura has two lovely beaches just 2 miles away, 1 either side of the Marina. Both are very well looked after and have beach bars/restaurants available. Quarteria also has a beach with a long promenade with many places to eat and drink.
Faro airport is just a 20 minute drive away. Car hire is not essential but advisable.
Vilamoura marina with bars, restaurants, shops and casino is about 2 miles away.
