Vilamoura is closer to Faro than Albufeira and is also quieter and smaller.


Vilamoura is ideal for families and has plenty of hotels geared towards parents with young kids (See ‘Where to Stay’). The town offers nice restaurants and a beach along with a marina however it is a little more expensive than other resorts. The marina is the hub in the town and everything is happening around here. It is a very child friendly resort and kids will be welcome everywhere in fact you will find that waiters and waitresses will generally make a fuss about your little one.
