Stayed here for 6 nights - the pools are fabulous and very clean there was plenty of sunbeds The apartment was clean and spacious with great housekeeping Staff here I found very helpful especially the lady on arrival gave us all the info we needed and was happy to help if you needed advice on excursions The property is based on a hill about ten minutes walk from the restaurants Lidl is about a 15 minute walk handy to get a few bits We ate dinner here once and found the food wasn't great so would opt to dine out Overall a very nice hotel and friendly staff and very reasonable would absolutely stay here again
This resort is ideal for families. It has three pools, lovely gardens, playgrounds, a bar to watch the sunset, a mini-market, launderette and so on. The wifi is excellent throughout the resort. We had an apartment with a partial view over the harbour. It was spacious, although the bathroom was weirdly tiny and badly designed; in the bedroom the bed was large and comfortable.The kitchen was well equipped, but basic things like washing liquid, sponge etc were not supplied (which would have been a nice gesture). Unfortunately our apartment was rather dirty, I had to cover the sofa with a blanket (supplied for the sofa-bed) and clean the surfaces with my own wipes. The loo seat was faulty, the shower curtain mouldy, the floors dirty (despite daily room service). Ferragudo itself is only a 5 minute walk – it’s a lovely little village with many restaurants and shops. There are several beautiful beaches nearby, easily accessible with a car or water taxi from the village.
This was our first stay in Portugal, we liked Ferragudo the square is lovely, the food was good, although quite expensive. The beach was especially nice and well worth a visit. Our apartment was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. The walls are very thin and we had particularly inconsiderate neighbours which woke us up several times in the middle of night. Reception handled this very well for us. Reception staff in general were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately I found the older lady on reception very sharpe on two occasions. The pool areas are great no issue getting sun beds each day. The kids pool was perfect for our 5 year old to go in on her own. The lady in the shop was so friendly and made a real effort to chat and get to know us. As did most of the staff within the resort. Unfortunately we found that breakfast was very basic with not enough healthy options the quality of the food was poor. Although we were aware there wasn't a kids club, I do think that a kids disco a few times a week would of been great a quite easy to facilitate. Overall we enjoyed our stay if we returned we certainly wouldn't eat at the resort.
Having been to Ferragudo many times. Vitors is always our first choice for accomodation. Staff on reception are very helpful. The apartments are very clean & spacious as is the location for bars & restaurants.
What can I say what a lovely hotel the staff are friendly there are 3 great pools a shop onsite the lady there is so nice we stayed a week would definitely come back the room is really comfortable and is cleaned daily the kitchenette has plenty of intensils to cook with highly recommended
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Vitor's village. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and rooms were cleaned daily and spotless. Prices at the pool bar were very reasonable and the food good. Ferragudo itself is only a 5 minute walk and a lovely little village. I wouldn't hesitate to return, we really enjoyed our short stay.
We got a free upgrade to one of the beautiful apartment; newly built, air con, very large. The town near by is called Ferragudo and is a lovely little harbor, full of small restaurants. The only negative point to make is their breakfast; the selection is good but everything tastes very very very cheap and poorly made.
I spent hours scouring the internet for the right holiday for us as we didn't want some high rise busy resort town. Ferragudo and Vitor's Village resort was perfect. We arrived at 12 and happily made use of the pool and snack bar until our one bed S/C room was available from 2. The room was immaculate with fresh towels and linen changed very frequently. Every apartment had great views and the resort was very relaxed with a balance of British, Dutch, German and some French. Our apartment was in the green zone (103A). It had the advantage of being in the shade during the afternoon. It was always spotless and had everything we needed. There was a short and pleasant walk (two options) to get into Ferragudo; yes downhill but it was not difficult. We also enjoyed walking to two of the beaches, again not difficult but thoroughly enjoyable; making use of the courtesy bus just the once to reach Praia Pintadhino further a field. You can get easy access to Praia Grande at low tide by walking around the now privately owned castle. You can as easily walk across the sandy path behind the castle to get to the beach at high tide. The easy walk to Lidl was 10-12 minutes; which was well stocked. We made this walk daily for fresh bread etc. We enjoyed eating out on a number of occasions though would advise booking if you want to eat later. We can recommend the Italian in the narrow street that had beautiful pink flowers trailing above. We also loved a last night's meal at the Club Nau restaurant on Praia Grande. We never had the desire to take the taxi cross to Portimao or Praia da Rocha as we enjoyed the calmer way of life and quieter beaches this side of the river. There is a simple beauty and charm of Ferragudo with fabulous views. We used Green bus transfer taxi service; which was great so can highly recommend as it means you avoid sitting on a bus for two hours dropping other tourists off at their hotels. All in all this was a perfect choice for our family. Exploring the narrow streets and drinking in the square at night whilst watching the sunset over Portimao was great. We also enjoyed seeing the fishing boats return, the fish being cooked on the prom and the three cruise ships arriving, It was about 45 minute transfer from Faro and despite leaving our apartment at 12 for a 4pm pick up we still enjoyed using the resort's facilities before leaving. You are therefore best getting an evening flight home to add an extra day to your holiday!
I'm currently staying here and I can't wait to leave. Where do I start? Firstly, you're miles from the beach, don't think this is a beach resort. As you pull in part of the resort is derelict, obviously they ran out of money at some point and didn't finish it. The empty buildings are covered in graffiti. Rest of the resort looks dirty form the outside and in need of painting (or at least cleaning). Arrived around 12, room not ready (accepting it is peak season) so headed to the pool. No sun-loungers available, whole thing cramped and over-crowded. Loungers probably for 100 guests, probably 500 people here so the odds are against you. Went to the pool bar, over priced for very average food. Finally got to my room and its tiny and the TV is about the size of an iPad! No fridge and two very flimsy single beds. Noise levels horrendous, walls paper thin. Breakfast is disgusting, very cheap food / ingredients. Pre-made omelettes could have doubled as frisbees for the pool! Waiter had a stinking attitude and wouldn't let me in as I didn't have the piece of paper to go with my room key. Just back to my room at 3pm now and no maid service as yet. Complained to reception staff, no interest and no endeavour to try and make things better, they really don't care, you're just a commodity here. Avoid this place like the plague!! I was at the Pestana Viking just before I came here, its about 10kms away and its brilliant. My advice, go there if you want a nice relaxing break and to be treated as a valued customer.
Arrived at the resort just before midnight, but friendly greeting at reception and walked around to our apartment. All very well organised! Apartment was very spacious with everything we needed (although note that no oven). Resort was reasonably quiet over half term and we always managed to get loungers by the main pool. For the money, it's an excellent choice in a great location. Will be back!
