For an affordable yet luxurious choice in the Vilamoura area, you should consider paying a visit to the Pestana Vila Sol Premium Golf and Spa Resort. This peaceful resort is far enough away from Vilamoura marina that you will not be overwhelmed by the crowds and the noise, but it is close enough that you can get there in less than 5 minutes if you want that experience. This resort offers tranquillity on your terms.
Room types range from Classic twin and double rooms, through to the luxurious Presidential Suite, which offers spectacular views out across the course. All rooms have air conditioning, minibar, safe deposit box, LCD satellite TV, balcony, and hotel services available. Free Wi-Fi is available to hotel guests and can be accessed inside most public areas of the complex.
The Pestana Vila Sol is perched right next to its own 27-hole course, which was designed by Donald Steel. The resort also has excellent access to many of the other wonderful courses which are situated in the Algarve. If you want to practice your skills off of the course, then you can go down to the large driving range or the adjacent golf academy.
After a hard day on the course you can visit the Magic Spa, which has a signature massage area with a variety of different sports and relaxation massages on offer. This spa only uses the finest massage oils and relaxation products, so you are sure to leave here feeling as refreshed as you have ever been. The Jacuzzi is also great to soothe your aching muscles. If you would prefer to spend time by one of the pools, then free sunbeds and parasols are available for use. During the winter months or periods of bad weather (or for those who want to stay out of the heat of the sun), an indoor pool is also available.
Additional entertainment can be found in the form of tennis courts, a games room (which includes pinball, pool and ping-pong amongst other things) and a fitness centre. The gym is accessible 24/7 for those who want the opportunity to exercise early in the morning or later at night.
