‘Great location. Great pool. Bar is awesome.’
Vilanova Resort in Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal

A great, affordable base for an Algarve escape, the 3 star Vilanova Resort offers chic and contemporary accommodation and is perfectly positioned if you’re looking to make the most of the vibrant Albufeira nightlife. The large outdoor pool has plenty of sun loungers and parasols surrounding it, and is set within extensive lush green gardens, giving you endless opportunities for making the most of that gorgeous Algarve sunshine.

Vilanova Resort has a mixture of villas and apartments, decorated in traditional Portuguese style, all with kitchen facilities, TV, fully-equipped bathrooms and a daily cleaning service. Villas have up to 3 bedrooms, ideal for groups of friends planning on partying the nights away, and studio apartments can sleep up to 3 guests. The poolside bar is open all day and serves a variety of snacks and drinks, and as the resort is set in the centre of Albufeira, a short walk will provide a wealth of dining options when evening rolls around.

The buzzing heart of Albufeira, ‘the Strip’, is only metres away and offers a large selection of street cafes, bars, restaurants, night clubs and shops, while maintaining a fun, relaxed vibe. For a slower pace, Praia da Oura is one of the best beaches Albufeira has to offer and is just a short walk away. Don’t miss Albufeira's charming old town, and the traditional fisherman's cottages and pretty cobbled streets are just waiting to be explored.
