Villa was good for our two families as we could sunbathe separately using the pool area and the upper sun terrace Plenty of loungers and parasols (which are not often provided ) .. The location is 25min walk to the marina and 2-3 mins to a selection of bars and local shop. The tourist train was every 1/2 hr up until 6pm which we used almost daily. If going again we would purchase a weekly ticket and not a daily one as more economical. Very quiet, well maintained, very clean and tidy village.

Lovely villa situated within a 5 minute walk of a small supermarket, a couple of restaurants and a bar. The marina is only 15-20 min walk away although you can hop on the tourist train which stops across the road from the villa if you fancy a ride out. Great friendly service from Solmar as we had a minor query which was resolved within an hour.

We loved our stay. A family of 5. The place is quiet and 10 minutes drive maximum from all the important places, beach, restaurants, supermarket. Loved the pool and the balcony.

Villa Ponderosa is in a perfect location, literally a 1 minute walk to the old town where there are lovely restaurants and bars. Outside the villa a little motorised train that arrives every half an hour and cost €6 return and will take you down to the marina where there are plenty more restaurants and bars to choose from. There are also some beautiful beaches. We did have a hire car for our week, so we also managed to visit some other towns, you can get a coach to theses places though so a hire car isn’t needed. The villa was lovely and clean, and the pool entertained the 6 of us even though it is small. We would definitely go back to this villa.

Ways of improving would be to replace beds

Lovely villa. The pool is tiny, exposed and a bit of an after thought, but otherwise the villa a great choice. Nice roof top terrace for privacy. Location is the Old Village...pub & bakery/bistro within 100 yards plus a small supermarket & 3 or 4 other eateries within 5 minutes walk. The Vilamoura road train stops opposite 2 or 3 times an hour & is handy for reaching various locations including the beach & marina.

Really enjoyed the holiday in the villa, however, there were two issues 1 - no heating in the lounge so it was a bit chilly in the evenings 2 - on the Friday afternoon about 4:00 pm the sprinklers for the lawn suddenly came on and wet the towels / books etc on the loungers we had placed near the pool. My wife ran into the villa away from them and because of the water slipped on the floor and fell - dangerous to say the least. We think these two issues need to be addressed

Resort was immaculate and quiet. Very British/Golfers but no rowdiness. Would definitely return. Would have liked to find more authentic Portuguese restaurants. Villa was also amazing. Highly recommend. Fully equipped and fresh towels delivered mid stay. Perfect break. Will use Solmar again 100%
