Just to let you know we had a great holiday and loved the apartment. The children really enjoyed going in the pool each day and having the space around it for playing. Having the DVDs was great for them too and we took your advice and brought an HDMI cable and used Filmon to watch some TV (a nice option as with children we weren't out late). We have stayed in a number of apartments in the last 5 years and we voted yours the best.
We will definitely consider returning - and possibly next year.
We are a family of three (two adults, one teenage boy) and stayed at this apartment from 28.07.14 to 11.08.14. We have visited Vilamoura 10 times over the years and have always stayed at self catering apartments, including the Old Village, Vila Sol, Tivoli Apartments and Victoria Boulevard. However, we all agreed that this was the best apartment and complex we have stayed at so far.
I understand that 2014 is the first year it has been available for rental. As such, everything is very new and all the furnishings, utensils and kitchen equipment are virtually unused and everything that you might need is here. The pool area is lovely and, even at peak times, we never had any difficulty finding spare sunbeds; this is something we've always had a problem with at other complexes. There is a great view from the large shaded balcony, with the marina and sea view in the distance.
Due to its location, I would recommend hiring a car (as we did) as it's probably too far to walk to the marina, being about a 5 / 10 minute drive. There's easy access to the main coastal road from the complex which makes it easy to reach other resorts - for example we visited Silves and Loule for the markets and spent most days at our favourite beach at Garrao next to Vale do Lobo. There's shaded underground parking available with a lift to the apartment right opposite the allocated parking space. The wifi also came in really useful for checking out restaurants etc.
Although we know the area quite well, Carla gave us some great instructions (including photos) of how to get here. I would also say that the in-room welcome pack was the most comprehensive we've seen.
In conclusion we had a great holiday at a fantastic apartment and would recommend it highly. Thanks Carla!
Had a relaxing week, with a little golf, in this wonderful, immaculate apartment. Everything you need is to hand. I was not sure whether staying in an apartment would feel as safe as a hotel but I was proved very wrong; in fact very much the opposite. The view from the lounge balcony, which is where we spent most of our time while in the apartment, is absolutely amazing and relaxing in itself. Ate out at the local golf courses and surprised at how reasonable they were, and within walking distance. Definitely considering staying again and recommending to friends.
Just enjoyed a great fortnight at Monte Laguna - our 2nd visit. The apartment is spacious, very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the addition of a coffee maker this year which made breakfasts on the balcony even better. The large pool is great for keeping the children entertained with lots of sun loungers and umbrellas. Overall a great place for a family holiday in the sun.
The apartment was well equipped and furnished to a high standard and includes free wifi.
Although it comes with the recommendation to use car hire, it really is only five minutes drive into Vilamoura and you could travel by taxi to the marina or the beach.
It was lovely to be able to enjoy the busy marina and the return to the more tranquil atmosphere of the apartment, gardens and pool. The out door space here is great. It's totally enclosed, no worries about the kids. The pool is great for fun or the more serious swimmer if you want some exercise. Surrounding the gardens is the fairways of the Millenium golf course and the club house is only a short walk away, with its very good restaurant.
We had a great holiday at Monte Laguna, enjoy great food at the many restaurants around the lively Marina and loved the moles of sandy beaches.
But my favourite part of the whole holiday was the time spent on the balcony of the apartment. Whether first thing in the morning, watching the sunrise over the distant hills or enjoying cold drink or meal during the day overlooking the golf course with the sea in the background and in the evening you can look out towards the bright lights of Vilamoura.
I can only say we will go back again next year.
P.S. The owner Carla is very helpful and supplies a really useful welcome booklet, which covers everything, from how everything works to where are the best places to eat and what days the markets or on.
Our family of four (with two children aged 9 and 7 years) had a great fortnight’s holiday here in August 2015. The apartment is spacious, well furnished and very clean. We all loved the large pool which didn’t get too overcrowded during our stay and the grounds were large and well maintained. The flat is well equipped with loads of storage space and the provision of a washing machine and covered drying area can really help keep your luggage requirements down – especially when travelling as a family for 2 weeks.
Monte Laguna proved a great base to explore the Algarve coast by car. We also enjoyed several strolls round Vilamoura marina and visits to the sandy beach – just a 5 min drive away. Vilamoura resort is very pleasant with the marina lined with lovely bars and restaurants. The children enjoyed the Family Golf, a boat trip and we hired bikes and had a great ride along the coast.
The free wifi is a great asset and the collection of DVDs was a nice touch to keep us entertained in the evenings plus Carla’s tips on how to access UK TV. Great weather meant we were able to eat all our meals on the balcony which has nice views overlooking the adjacent golf course.
Carla was very helpful in providing advice in advance of our holiday and arranged for a 20 euro box of groceries to be provided on arrival to avoid the need to shop after an evening arrival.
My tips on a few small improvements would be the provision of a coffee maker (we bought and left a cafetiere but a filter coffee maker would be great to go with the luxury billing of the apartment) and two sets of keys to help getting through the garden security door if not everyone wants to come back from a swim at the same time. Minor points for an overall very well equipped flat.
We would recommend this as a great place to stay in a lovely setting – particularly good for families.
The Monte Laguna apartment is set within a quiet complex, within easy access to Vilamoura (5 mins), Albufeira (25 mins) and Faro (20 mins). It is also only 20 mins drive from the airport. The apartment is very modern and is furnished tastefully. We enjoyed the wonderful view of the pool (more later) and the surrounding hills, golf course and villas. There is a large table in the balcony, which is conveniently shaded all day, so we used it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The living area is compact and we enjoyed the various facilities on offer, such as the smart TV and DVD player. The WiFi was very fast which kept our teenage children happy with their laptops and iPads! The kitchen is well equipped and the two bathrooms are also well maintained. The pool is huge (25m) and is very well kept and was empty most of the time we were there. The underground car park was very convenient as it keeps the car cool and it is very near to the lift up to the apartment.
The only slight negative is that we wish there is a larger supermarket near by, as the nearest one is at least 20-25 mins drive. There is however, a small shop only 2 mins drive away but it is more expensive and limited with what it has but fine for smaller things like bread and milk.
On the whole, we enjoyed the apartment very much and would recommend it if you wish to enjoy a quiet vocation.
The Vilamoura area is beautifully landscaped and caters for golfers, shoppers and beach lovers or just somewhere to relax by the pool in year long sunshine. The picturesque town of Vilamoura has a large marina, where you can people watch in the many cafés, bars and restaurants or do some designer shopping.
The golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice by the 36 Algarve golf courses, 5 of which are in Vilamoura. Oceanico's Millennium, Laguna and Victoria are in walking distance from the apartment, a short drive away you can find Pinhal and Vila Sol golf courses. You can also experience many of the other activities on offer such as water sports, luxurious spas, tennis, horse riding, cycling, lawn bowls and sailing.
Your evenings can be spent walking around the vibrant marina, take your chances in the international casino or dance the night away in the many nightclubs including Black Jacks and Kadoc or in the open air beach clubs in peak season such as Bliss.
It is the perfect resort for families with miles of white sandy beaches, local Praia da Falesia beach has been awarded blue flag status for cleanliness. Day trips can include visits to local markets, visiting the picturesque local towns, cruises, excursions, Aquashow Park, Zoomarine or Karting and Buggy Safari's for the adventurous.
There is something in Vilamoura for all ages and tastes.
