                  Near to the nightlife.

                  Reception staff unhelpful - room didn't have a balcony we complained on arrival and given keys to the only room available with a balcony. The corridors were smelly and dirty and the room was on the top floor. The balcony was loose and very unsafe. Didn't accept this room and asked for them to keep us informed if anything better became available. We were never informed if anything had become available. Facilities in the room were poor and not many utensils. No Wifi - kept asking when they would have this repaired! didn't once again get a helpful response. Wifi was off for the whole time we were there. I did email you several weeks ago and have not received a reply. The pool and gardens were very good but you need to 1. Get better Reception staff as they are representing your Apartments 2. Get rooms updated with better facilities inside the rooms. When a balcony is requested to make an effort to do this for the customer. Make the beds more comfortable. The list is endless really! We didn't let it spoil our holiday as the weather and Portugal are fantastic. Wouldn't go back to these apartments unless all of the above were improved. You also have a lot of bad reviews which when I checked before my holiday I was dubious about going. PLEASE EMAIL ME BACK WITH SOME SORT OF COMPENSATION. Thanks.

                  Close to the strip and not far from beach. Nice pool area and gardens.

                  The Apartment is in much need of an update! Not good facilities in the room, no wi-fi when we were there! No Air Con! No balcony. On our day of arrival we were disappointed we hadn't got a balcony as well as everything mentioned above. The reception staff were not good at all! Asked to see another room and we were handed a key to take a look. The area leading up to the room was dirty and smelt of urine which was off putting. We went to enter the lift but wouldn't go in as the floor of the lift felt unsafe. We got to the room and it was on the third floor and we asked for a lower floor. We had a look at the balcony and the rail was loose and unsafe. We then went down to reception to inform them the room was not suitable and asked if they would let us know if anything came on the block we were in (Room 2106 was the room we were in). We regularly asked the unhelpful staff and they seemed uninterested (we arrived 14th June for a week). We then went to our room! After a few days we noticed the room below us were leaving the following day. I then went down to the reception staff and asked if we could have this room, we were told to come down in the morning. In my opinion, they could have made a note to ask the morning staff to allocate this room for us. We went down the following day and were advised by a female member of reception that the room had been allocated to someone else! She also was unhelpful. At this point we gave up. To summarise, you should concentrate on the rooms and facilities in the room that need to be updated and employ more helpful staff as these people are the first we meet and represent the Apartments. Also repairs to wi-fi should be dealt with within a day or two. Await your response.

                  Room was ok for the 2 of us as we were just there to chill, beds are made of concrete with a hard single mattress so sleeping wasn't great, no air con, although a good bit from the road it was still very noisy traffic wise, great pool which we couldn't use as the place was overtaken with drinkers from 10am to 8pm, taking children is not advised.

                  Full of drunken people and no one to keep check on them, they were allowed to do what they wanted, not suitable for families.

                • 1.6

                  Although we were in bnasic accommodation (which we knew we were going to be in) the rooms were cleaned every day and towels etc changed daily too. The staff were always willing to help should you have a query.

                  None as everything was as we had expected it to be. Would recommend as you can't beat the price.

                • 0.2

                  Near the strip. Print out boarding pass free, cheap but you get what you pay for.

                  NOT cable TV only 2 English channels, no heating in rooms!!! Out of season and I was still put in a room facing a bar and had balcony with NO sunlight at all. Room was cold all the time!!! Microwave never worked, never had dish washer. Water heater was close to sink and above electrics would leek anytime I used the shower. Very basic. WOULD NOT RECCOMED.

                  Vilanova resort is in a great location for access to the (New Town) Strip in Albuferia. Our accomodation was a very comfortable villa-style apartment with parking at the door and direct access through a private patio area to the pool. I would recommend this property as suitable for families or groups but just remember this is not a 3 or 4 star location by Irish or British standards

                  The pool-water was green for most of the week but after lodging a complaint at reception staff seemed to be employed to treat the problem over the last few days -however it was too late for us. The property generally looks run down and there is not half enough sun beds for the number of guests accomodated. The pool snack-bar offers a poor choice which means having to leave the property for lunch etc,. Furthermore there is quite a walk to the closest beach and potential guests should keep in mind that the livelier and larger Old Town area and the other beaches are a bus ride away.

                  I liked staying in the hotel because it was at the centre of the strip and close to everything

                  i didnt like that there was a lot of ball playing in the swimming pool and it was hard to swim without getting hit with 1 of them using footballs, rugby balls , tennis balls

                  The staff we're excellent and always there to help. The pool and surrounding area was fantastic and so spacious. The Villa had an excellent Balcony and was perfect for our needs. Thank you.

                  The large pool and surrounding grassy areas.

                  Lack of sunbeds around the pool, many of them were broken. We were accommodated in block 4/5 which seems to be where all the young groups of girls/boys are, during the day they were very quiet but coming in after a night out, they were unbeleivably noisy and inconsiderate- usually between 4 and 5 am! Also our room overlooked the strip which again was unbelievably noisy at night. If at all possible, request rooms around the pool area, the bungalows are the best ones to go for.

                  like the fact that it was right next to the strip and as we were on a stag do the location was perfect! The place in general was good!

                  The location of the resort is good with easy access to a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops. The old town is within walking distance for those who a relatively fit. If you should hire a car, then getting around to the other resorts and places of interest is quit straightforward. The staff are frierndly and helpful. The pool area is regularly cleaned and the gardens are reasonably well kept.

                  The rooms are in need of renovation (villas). There can be some noise from the bars depending on your location within the resort. The rooms are cleaned daily but they do not clean/sweep outside on the patio area. Sun beds are of a premium. Be careful when walking on the pavement or road as they are uneven and very slippery when wet.

                  Fantastically situated, right on the strip in Albufeira. We took our dog as there is a huge garden and pools with a diving board available. Hotel staff are very helpful.

                  The only thing I didnt like about the hotel was the beds. Each room has two single matresses on the floor. Although they are elevated, they are still on the floor.

                  The complex is very good. the rooms are spacious and have front and back patios where we had bbq's every night. The swimming pool area is enourmous.

                  The rooms could do with a bit of updating, but then again you get what you pay for, and for the money paid its fine.

                  We have visited previously and on this occasion we were up graded from a one bed apartment to a 2 bed villa of which we were very grateful for.

                  The place needs an update, however it is perfectly place for the bars and Restaurants.
