Been to Apartment J many times and cannot fault it at all. Very homely, spotless in regards to cleanliness, great location and the complex is very quiet and private. Feels like a brand new show home. Soo peaceful during the day, swimming pool and gardens are beautiful. Villamoura is an amazing town to visit and the marina is exceptional. 5 stars
The apartment was fantastic, from the word go we had a great time. Clean, modern and great set up with it being five minute walk form the Marina however quiet enough to feel relaxed. Great back up service from Karen and nothing is ever a problem like when we got locked out within first 15 minutes of our stay!
Supermarket across the road and Parky's which is great value for lunches. Will be booking again

We loved our stay in Praia Village. The information provided in advance was very useful, all correspondence was prompt and helpful; on arrival we were met with the keys and given an introduction to the accommodation.
It was half term but the complex was pretty quiet so there was plenty of space and no disturbances. The apartment was pristine and equipped with all necessary kitchen essentials inc bottle opener, pizza wheel, egg cups, knives, ice packs, ice trays etc. There were lots of bath and hand towels supplied for the three of us, and the beds were firm but comfy and large.
The outdoor temp was in the low to mid 20's during our stay; the apartment was nicely cool in the day, a little chill in the evening (as we'd neglected to take sweaters) but there are spare blankets if needed.
We couldn't get any freeview on the TV and there's no card provided for the Sky box (not sure whether taking ours from home would have worked). Loads of children's DVD's are provided which was great for our four year old. No wifi, although you can get free wifi in most restaurants.
The whole Praia Village complex including the pool was very clean and well maintained. We could see all the pool area from our patio making it very safe for our daughter to play.
For us it was a touch too far to walk to the old town or the marina, but in the car it took just a few minutes to reach a huge range of restaurants. The local supermarkets are a bit limited but Pingo Doce, a 10 minute drive away, is much better and has good fresh meat and fish.
We visited Zoo Marine, Aquashow, Family Golf Park and Quarteira market, enjoying them all. There's lots to do in the area so I'd really recommend this apartment, and Vilamoura, to anyone.
We stayed in Apt J,Praia Village for one week . The apt was clean, modern and tidy with all the appliances you could need for your holiday.We have paid much more in lesser properties, so for vfm the apartment is an absolute winner. Mark(the owner) was always available to answer any queries prior to our departure in a very friendly and helpful manner. We were accompanied by our teenage daughter but I would say if you have more than two children then you may find the property a touch on the small side but that would be my only criticism.The small complex was very quiet and relaxing, very family orientated. If you want all day drinking around the pool, then I'd suggest Magaluf or Ayia Napa...Vilamoura is not that kind of resort.
As for the actual location of the apartment itself I would admit it is a little bit of a trek to Falesia Beach but only about 15 mins to the very popular Marina area...to sum up, we would have no hesitation in booking again in the future.

The apartment was extremely comfortable even for 7 people, the grounds were clean and well taken care of. The marina was a little too far away if your in heels but otherwise it's a fair distance away, it has a wide variety of restaurants, bars and clubs. We found most to be quite affordable but there is cheaper just a couple of roads from the marina. Also, excellent karaoke!!
