Stayed here with girlfriend for 4 nights, we were very pleased with our stay. The room was quite simple but nice. Fairly sized and most importantly, it was very clean! The room had air-con, a bath tub/shower and a balcony with table and chairs. There is also a safe which could have been a little bigger, especially since you have to pay to use it - €10. (Worth noting that paying to use the safe is quite normal for hotels in Portugal. Generally speaking they all charge a small fee to use it). There is Wifi in the room which gets a pretty good signal and we also had an iron and ironing board which is very useful and not something that all hotels usually provide. The room is cleaned twice a week and towel changes are also twice a week - you can get it changed more times at an extra cost. Also worth bringing your own towel as they ask not to use their towels by the pool side. Facilities wise the hotel has a lot to offer. Lots of outside space and a total of 3x outdoor pools (one of which is a children’s pool). There is also a small gym upstairs, a games room equipped with a pool table and air-hockey table, a quiet area where you can sit and read a book (lots of books there to choose from), and a poolside bar with an upstairs terrace with nice views overlooking the sea. We opted for the breakfast which for the price is worth doing. It’s fairly standard food, pretty much what you’d expect. Lots of variety from hot food, cereals, biscuits, fresh fruit, different breads and fillings, and a selection of hot/cold drinks etc... Location is also pretty good! There is nothing in the immediate area around the hotel, however its a 5-10 minute walk into town where you can find plenty of restaurants (one or two in particular are Excellent!) and also a nice beach nearby. There are a few companies based there offering boat tours. The hotel is about a 20-min walk from Ferragudo train station which has links to Lagos, Silves and Portimao, amongst other places. (It also links to Faro so you can get train to/from the airport but do check timetables as the trains are not regular). Tickets are very cheap (about €2.20pp to get to Lagos and even less to Silves). Tickets are usually bought from the conductor on the train, so dont worry when you get to the station and dont see a ticket office or any staff around. Ferrragudo station is very hidden and almost looks abandoned. I found the trains to be pretty reliable and ran on time. There are also a number of buses you can get to other towns etc although I didnt use them as I found the train to be much quicker as buses take longer routes. I found Ferragudo to be an excellent place to stay. Its nowhere near as touristy as Albufeira but still has lots to offer tourists, whilst maintaining that small town-feel and charm, with mostly local-run establishments. The perfect balance. Lastly, the staff at the hotel were all very friendly and professional. The lady who checked us in, I believe her name is Carla Alexandra? She was particularly very helpful throughout our stay, helping with instructions on how to get to different places and general information, so a big thank you to her. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely stay again in future.
We (couple)stayed here bed and breakfast from 11th to 18th November.We arrived about 9 o'clock at night to be greeted by no one at the reception desk.After waiting around 5 minutes the reception lady appeared(she was showing people to the doors of their chalets as it was quite dark)by this time I was quite irate after a long journey and just wanted to go to my chalet.It was a quiet time of the year and this was probably why she was on her own.Anyway after settling in we were fine and made our way back to the reception for a couple of night caps.....Now to comments about vitors village........The place is like a little village of well kept gardens which is spotlessly clean....The chalets themselves are also very clean and spacious and kept to a high standard.Although we did think that the light inside the chalets are a bit low,especially when trying to cook.There are no draining boards or anywhere to stack your dishes after cleaning.We were there during the close season so all the amenities(bar,supermarket and restaurant were all closed.We did however have a breakfast every morning and the food was of a buffet style help yourself and was very pleasant..........There is a big lidl store about a 15 minute walk which was very handy for us.Nearest town is Ferragudo which is a quiet fishing village with some eateries and small shops...You can get a taxi ferry to the bigger places like Portamao and Playa de Rocha for around €6 per head,ferry time is only 5 minutes or so................We were there for 7 days and never saw a cloud in the sky which was excellent for sunbathing by the pool.
We were not sure exactly what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. It is a substantial property with a large number of units but not congested. Rooms are spacious, clean and accommodating. Excellent for the price. Within walking distance to the town, shops and restaurants. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Pool area was most inviting as was their restaurant.
Big ,new,luxe apartments,near the centrum of ferragudo, nice grounds and swimming pool. it's a stip hike,guests with walk problems it will be a problem and probably have to take a taxi.(around 3 euros); bad acoustic insulation,we had a spanish family with to small children, and there was a lot of noise,shouting to each other ,open and closing doors ,wardrobe. You have to be lucky to have a calm family next apartment. difficult to reach with public transport,from Portimão or the station of ferragudo costs 7 euros. rooms with river view can have a nice view; there is a taxi-boat on het river to the marina of Praia da rocha,you can walk till Prainha or Alvor and comeback with public transport. Very nice neaches praia do Vau,praia do Alemao, praia dos tres irmaos... superb beaches.
Loved the cleanliness of the communal areas and apartments. Pool was very cold, but as it was October it was hardly surprising- I did however get in! Breakfast is Ok. You pay extra for breakfast but the apartments are self catering and are fully equipped with hob, microwave/oven and fridge freezer. There is a daily free shuttle to the local beaches, we walked which took 20 mins to the best bit with cafe/restaurants. Portimao is great for shopping! Ferragudo is est 45 mins from Faro airport by taxi. Only a few stops by train to Lagos. (we used the train a lot, as it runs along the coast to all other hotspots, as it's very cheep) All in all a great holiday and would go back.
We stayed at Vitors at the end of Sept/early October (4 adults) & what a lovely place this is. The complex is very quite & ideal if you wish to just chill by the pool. There is a little supermarket on site which had the friendliest lady working in there, however provisions were quite low, which I can only assume is down to the time of year we went as it was the end of their season. The Skyline bar was only open for the first couple of nights we were there, so unfortunately we never really got chance to check that out. We ate in the restaurant a couple of nights & the food was very nice indeed, but for the remainder we walked into the village as there are plenty of very nice restaurants down there. The beach is about a 25 minute walk, or you can jump on the free bus from the hotel. This too is a gorgeous beach with a couple of very nice bars. There is a charge for the umbrella's & sunbeds of about €13 for 2 for the day. I would definitely return back to to this lovely place. Thank you Vitors
We stayed here last June for 10nights. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 young kids. Wr had a one bedroom apt and it was perfect. Clean, spacious, fully equipped with everything we needed. The cleaning staff were excellent and even arranged our pyjamas into shapes everyday (highlight for the kids lol). The staff were excellent in the bar. Very helpful. The swimming pool area is beautiful and plenty of space. We spend mornings and evenings here. Afternoons were a bit hot for our fair skin! The local village is a short walk away and full of lovely friendly people and fabulous restaurants. We ate out most days (no reflection on hotel restaurant but we just love trying new places every night). The walk down is fine but very steep so may be an issue for older couples. My in laws also stayed here in another apartment and they were delighted with it also. We all plan to come back sometime soon. The resort is quiet yet full of fun and friendly. We found it perfect for a family holiday with young kids. One of the best hotels wr have stayed in. Very safe feeling. Lovely clientele. Hopefully be back soon.
We travelled here as a family of four (2 adults, one 14yrs & an 8 year old) from the 27th September to the 7th October. We booked last minute via Travel Republic and got a really good deal. After reading previous Trip Advisor reviews we decided to book a car from Faro airport. The drive to the apartments was around 55 minutes and relatively easy for a novice European driver. Getting this car was an absolute lifesaver and I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to Ferragudo We arrived at 12 and was told we was unable to check in till 14:00, so we sat by the pool & got a drink; this gave our children time to explore the Village. Our apartments was great, spotlessly clean & ample room for a family of four. There is one double bed and a large sofa bed. The kitchen is well equipped however we was disappointed to not have an oven. There is a small fridge with a freezer compartment. The village has one main pool & 2 smaller ones. There is a small supermarket & laundry also on sight. Dina in the shop is a credit to the Village. There is a small snack bar and a restaurant. The snack bar was okay but we never used the restaurant after speaking to other guests. The reviews aren’t that great. Ferragudo is a small traditional Portuguese fishing village lined with traditional Portuguese heritage. The cobbled streets and small restaurants are picture perfect. There is a small square at the bottom of the road approx 5 minutes walk. Here you will find some lovely places to eat; however these can be a little expensive. We paid 80 Euros for the four of us and that was just for one course each and soft drinks. Ferragudo does have a small beach but we decided to drive to various other beaches. Portimão and praia dos Três Irmãos are stunning!! The sand is white and the water is crystal clear! The views are breathtaking and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. Be warned local men will try and sell you all kinds!! Beware of the Ray Bon’s 😂. I would personally recommend getting a car if you’re staying in Ferragudo, we found that by having the car you’re free to explore Portugal and that without it you could become tired of doing the same things; however you can take the water taxi over to Praia da Rocha and Portimão. We did this one evening it cost €20. We used the car daily and it was perfect to visit the local Lidl. This would be a 20 minute walk & with shopping & the heat it’s not ideal. If you have children slide & slash the local water park is a must!! We booked online and saved 15% it cost around €89 for the four of us but we spent the full day there and the kids loved every second! My husband had just as much fun! We also did the Santa Bernada Pirate Boat trip! We paid £100 and the water was so choppy we didn’t even get to see the caves!! We was offered a free trip 5 days later but we flew home before then. This was really disappointing as that’s the main reason we booked the trip! The hotel has no entertainment day or evening & I feel this really let the whole holiday down. Nighttime’s in ferragudo aren’t the best if you have children and most evenings we would drive out to different areas looking for something to do! Lagos has a good mini-golf and lots of restaurants and bars. We also drove to Praia Da Rocha and Portimão for our evening meal. Beware the food can be expensive! All in all this was a nice family holiday and Portugals stunning but due to the lack of entertainment I wouldn’t return to Vitor’s Village with children.
We really enjoyed our stay at Vitor's Village. Our one bedroom apartment was large, with a little lobby which meant that we were able to spend time on an evening and access the bathroom without disturbing our sleeping baby in the bedroom. It also meant room to store the pushchair and suitcases away from our living space. The staff were great, they don't go overboard without asking but when asked they give lots of help and advice. But then again I am happy to carry my own luggage and walk to my own room independently. The whole complex was clean and very well kept and felt very safe. Highchairs were always clean and well kept which is not always the case when eating out. We didn't eat in the restaurant on an evening but the breakfast buffet was lovely with plenty of choice for everyone, hot options as well as continental, lots of fresh fruit and selection of pastries and breads. The little cafe was very handy and the staff were very attentive, especially to children. It was a tad expensive for lunch, but the prices were in line with the other restaurants in the area. The only couple of downsides were minor, the pools were cold until late in the day and my daughter was often shivering (although refused to stop swimming as she was having too much fun) and we missed more than one maid service due to timing. Our room seemed to be visited late in the day and so merged with the time our baby was napping rather than when we were out of the room in the morning. I would be more than happy to visit Vitor's Village again in the future.
The reception staff where efficient but we didn't feel totally welcomed. We were given directions to our apartment, rather than taken to it and, as it was dark and due to the size of the resort, we had trouble finding it. We also had trouble with the key card so then had to walk back to reception. It was a big, clean apartment with partial views of the harbour so was ok as a base, but we didn't spend much time on the resort or eat there as there are much better options in Ferragudo.
