Hotels in Vilamoura are popular with holidaymakers who want it all. Glorious sandy beaches? Check. A gleaming modern marina? You’ve got it. Ancient Roman ruins, you know, to tick the cultural box? Sure thing!
This magnificent medley makes Vilamoura one of the hottest package-holiday destinations on Portugal’s sunny Algarve.
This purpose-built tourist resort grew from little more than a fishing harbour and the site of an ancient Roman villa, the Cerro da Vila.
It wouldn’t have been difficult to see the potential of this place way back in the 1960s. Stretching away from the harbour in both directions are glorious caramel sands and shallow Atlantic surf, with plenty of land behind them on which to sculpt manicured golf courses and lay the foundations for resort hotels.
Today, several of Vilamoura’s five-star hotels flank the sands of the main beach, Praia de Vilamoura, offering excellent service, magnificent sea views and delicious dining options. Surprisingly, they don’t always command the highest rates, and you can often net a fantastic deal.
From nabbing the best views to sweet talking your way into an upgrade, improve your chances of getting the best hotel room – without paying through the nose – with these expert tips.Read moreabout Ask the experts: How to bag the best hotel rooms
