About Rodrigo Oliveira Santos
We are a portuguese married couple with three girls from 6 to 13 years old, that love the Algarve and in particular Old Village. Since the first time that we met the complex, we fell in love for it, for its beautiful gardens, common areas, and all around the year life and people. We first bought a house 15 years ago, and have recently bought a bigger one, to ensure that all our big family can come to enjoy sunny Algarve. Our passion is also hospitality business, as we like to meet and greet our customers, that easily become our friends, regardless that it is not always possible to ensure that. Our vacation always include staying in the Algarve, and so we can recommend "our spots", to share with you our experiences.

Pool / Spa
About 25 minutes away from the airport. Everywhere you go in taxis, they all provide car seats which funny enough I haven’t been to a country which provide them as usually they just sit on your lap. Cooking facilities in the apartment were great. Instead of eating out every night as we had two babies with us, we stayed in and cooked food, everything you need was already there, pots and pans, cooking utensils. There’s also a washing machine, hair dryer and the tv is great! I have the same tv at home so was ideal. There were loads of British channels, so that night when we stayed in we were able to watch something. They also have numerous of children’s channels, nikelodeon, Disney channel, cebebies, good for when we had to get ready in the mornings. There wasn’t a bath but that didn’t phase us, my 4 year old showered and my 11 month old had a bath in the sink. There was BBQ facilities in the garden which would be great if you had a family and friends with you.
There’s a local super market which has everything you need. Fruit, veg bread butter meat, so on..
also on the complex were a few restaurants.
1.2 miles away, 6€ in a taxi, was the Vilamoura marine, there was a beach to one side and marina on the other. we took a nice walk along the dock, loads of amazing and expensive boats/yachts to have a look at. There were a lot of shops and restaurants along there. We had cleaners come in and give us a bin liner and fresh towels after two days, no one came in then for the rest of the holiday and I would advise maybe after another 3 days to come in again and check if everything is ok, change the bin liner and bed sheets only because our lovely 11 month old baby, decided to spew absolutely everywhere, which went over the bedding, I tried to work the washing machine but weren’t sure how to use it as no lights were coming on, it wasn’t a problem in the end.
Would definitely come back again and are even considering getting married here !
Lovely apartment in a fabulous resort.
Compact apartment, well furnished and nicely presented.
Everything was provided to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Missed having a bath.
Needs an update
Stayed in this apartment for 3 nights as part of a big group out to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were quite disappointed with the apartment as it is quite dated and tired , particularly the bathroom (really not a fan of grubby old shower curtains) and very old kitchen units. Also it is situated on a fairly busy road. It didn't help that we had several groups of friends all in different apartments which were far more comfortable and had been updated and they were paying less than us.
Very sad to see my first one star review.
Understand some of your opinions, but do think one star review is too unfair.
Don´t understand fully the reasons, has even during your stay our management services team let you stay on a late check out, offered you towels for the pool for free.
Prices in old village are set by each owner, and the ground floor apartments are more valuable, regarding nearby road, I have the apartment for more than 15 years and never had any complaint.
Regarding shower curtains, and wall paintings needed in the wc, I fully agree, and usually these sort of refurbishments are only done in the winter season. (which we will do)
The apartment was perfect, clean and very welcoming.
We absolutely loved Vilamoura and especially the Old Village. The apartment was perfect. We will definitely be back.
Hi Deborah, thank you for your kind message.
Hope to welcome you back.
Well equipped apartment
We had a really nice 7 night stay the apartment was well equipped with patio doors opening onto a small garden , the Old Village complex is a good Base for a visit to Villamoura
Hi Neil, thanks very much for your feedback!
Glad you enjoyed my apartment.
Hope to welcome you back in the future!
Lovely apartment perfect for a couple of people but ideal for one too (which was me). Everything you need is there.
Old Village is a beautiful place to stay, nice restaurants, lovely people and a choice of pools including the Garden Pool which is lovely if you want a chilled out, quiet day.
Two niggles for me
1. The double bed is really squeaky - fine if you are on your own once you get used to it but can imagine it being "interesting " if you are a couple!
2. The door to apartment is really difficult to unlock and open! You need brute strength and it will take several attempts! I heard other people saying they couldn't do their doors either so more and Old Village problem I think but needs fixing as it's scary being on your own in the dark when you can't get in.
All in all a wonderful stay and I am sure I will return next year.
Thanks for your comments, and for sure will have to replace the door lock as soon as I can.
Hope to welcome you again next year!
