About Fraser Boyd
Hi my name is Fraser Boyd and I live in Ireland with my wife Orla and our 10 year old daughter. We live in Co Louth and both work in Dublin and enjoy visiting the Algarve for breaks and holidays. Olhao is a great place to relax and unwind. It is close to all facilities with great restaurants, shops, markets and marina. Easy travelling to Faro and the west Algarve and Spain.
Fraser Boyd purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Fraser Boyd chose Vilamoura
We bought the apartment as a long term investment and for somewhere to take our holidays. Having visited Spain on a couple of occasions the Algarve was a breath of fresh air with none of the commercialism and crowds. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed, ideal for stress free holidaying. Plenty of activities for all ages and the weather is amazing and only 2.5 hours from the UK/Ireland.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is set within the Vilasol Resort which has 5-6 condominiums similar to Sunsetvillas and set around a central swimming pool. Very family orientated, quiet and relaxed. Golf club and 5 star hotel are close with bars, shops and restaurant at the entrance to the resort.

Excellent value we will rent the property again.
All good only one minor problem promptly fixed by the management company.
Perfectly located first floor apartment in a lovely resort
We arrived on 11th of August until the 21st August and we were delighted with the location of the apartment. The view from the 2 patios overlook the pool with easy access to it.
The apartment itself is spacious, clean and nicely decorated and the layout was perfect for my 3 teenage children and husband.
The owner was extremely helpful with any questions we had before we travelled, along with detailed directions and this meant we had no need to contact him during our stay.
We hired a car and there is parking just outside the apartment which was very handy, particularly if you have just stocked up with supplies from the nearby Pingo Doce supermarket.
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again when we book our next holiday.
Great surroundings but problems with the apartment
We arrived late at night due to a delayed flight and were very upset to find no top sheets on the beds and unwashed bedspreads - without going into too much detail these were very unpleasant. It was too late to be remedied on the first night so we were forced to sleep with our towels as covers. The next day the management company came and took away the soiled bedding and we’re supposed to return it laundered after the weekend but this didn’t happen. We were instead left with some very worn (ripped and threadbare) comforters which were from the wardrobes - no idea if these were clean, they certainly weren’t freshly laundered. The problems with cleanliness extended to the sofa which is not the cream leather pictured but rather a nasty stained yellow. A (dirty) throw covered half of it but this was not nice to sit on either. The place also had an dirty floor (sticky) and an ant problem but the management just said to buy some insect killer - as if this is something you want to go out and go on arrival.... so we were definitely upset with some aspects of our stay. On the positive side the beds themselves are very comfortable, the air con and WiFi were excellent and the Sunset complex is lovely and great for families. I feel the lack of cleanliness of everything marred our stay and made the holiday off to a bad start and hope the owners will address this for future guests.
Excellent stay. This was my second time staying here. Enjoyed thoroughly.
Property is ideal for families. Everything is in the property that you would need. A home from home. Great communication with Frasier the owner of the property. Will definitely be back sooner rather than later.
This apartment was great for my friends and I.
The apartment was very clean and spacious. The Taxi company arranged from the airport were also very helpful.
Ideal Holiday Location
I recently returned to this Vila Sol Apartment, along with my partner and my two children (17 &13) after we first stayed here four years ago and once again we had a really nice, relaxing week. The apartment is very clean, well maintained and is located is very peaceful, pleasant surroundings, with a lovely swimming pool. It was well equiped for everything we needed during our stay and has a fantastic BBQ, which we used three of the six nights we stayed. I would say the location is slightly remote, so unless you are happy to use the local taxi's then I suggust you hire a car as we did, which is useful for visiting Vilamoura marina, Quarteria or the local supermarket. It's not often we return to the same place, but we are all glad we did and we are likely to return again!!
The algarve has many top class beaches with the closest being Quateria and Vilamoura. These are 3 miles from the apartment.
Faro airport is 15/20 minutes from the apartment. Vilamoura marina is 5 minutes drive.
