                  Individual guest reviews

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    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.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.4

                    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

                  • Group of friends
                    8.8

                    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.

                  • Family with children
                    5.0

                    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.

                  • Group of friends
                    8.8

                    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!

                  • Older travelers
                    5.4

                    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.

                  • Group of friends
                    8.2

                    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.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.0

                    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.

                    7.4

                    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.

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    Lots of space Lovely big pool Great location Big rooms

                    It is only for young people who want to party all Night long. Very noisy Not for families and definitely not for young Children!!! No playground like it states in Brochure Pool packed all the time with people drinking

                  • Group of friends
                    3.8

                    Location. Size of 2 Bed-room villa was good. Towel Service was good

                    Noise from bar opposite 2 Bed-room Villa. Staff were not helpful or friendly. Beds were thin Mattresses on cement base. Dampness in Kitchen Cupboards. Walkways and foot paths were rough and slippery when wet.

                  • Group of friends
                    5.8

                    Settting was nice. Views good. Pool bar was good. Reception staff were very friendly. Valuables could be locked in a safety deposit box in secure room next to 24hour reception.

                    Villa rooms were basic Beds were not good Villa security was very poor

                  • Family with children
                    6.2

                    I cannot think of anything we liked about it as it's so old and in need of updating.

                    The villas are very old and in need of total refurbishment with new kitchen and bathrooms the pool area is in need of new sunbeds as they are broken and there was no on site supermarket it has been closed down so has the indoor bar and childrens play area.Also the shopping area on the strip is run down most shops are closed.We have been holidaying in the nearby area for over 35years and would not return to Vilanova again.this was our first stay at this complex.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.8

                    The location for this resort was perfect and the price was fantastic. The 2 bedroom villa was good size for 5 girls and everything we needed was there for the kitchen - toaster, kettle etc. The resort is quite big with one pool, which I reckon in busy times could be overcrowded but we were there at a quiet time (early May) so there was just enough sun loungers. The resort is so close to the strip in Montechero, litrealy on the top of the strip, so location to bars and restaurants was fantastic. This is an ideal spot for a group of young people but I would not recommend to a family as there was a number of hens and stags at the resort. Great value for money at only €54 a night for 2 bedrooms which could sleep up to 6.

                    The resort was 3 star and some parts needed updating and a coat of paint, but it was clean. The resort is so close to the strip that at times noise from the nearby bars etc could be heard, but that didnt bother us! There was only two mirrors in the entire vila, and only one bathroom/shower in it which cause slight issues for a group of 5 girls. But it was great value for money at only €54 a night for 2 bedrooms which could sleep up to 6.
