The Residences at Victoria

TripAdvisor Review
Portugal, Europe
Vilamoura

Wake up to the idyllic surroundings of one of Europe's best golf courses when you stay at The Residences at Victoria Algarve. You can benefit from special offers for rounds at the Arnold Palmer-designed Victoria course right next to the self-catering holiday apartments. A free shuttle service takes you to Vilamoura's dazzling marina and beach. The 92 air-conditioned apartments include spacious three-bedroom properties for up to six people. All have a private balcony and heated bathroom floor, plus a kitchenette equipped with a dishwasher, oven, and fridge. The Residences has its own restaurant and poolside bar that are open in summer, with pizzas, burgers, cocktails and smoothies on the menu. The hotel also delivers family meals to the apartments as part of its 24-hour room service. On hot days, you can cool off in our lazy river outdoor pool or relax with a good book on the sun loungers.

"Reception is open from 07:30 AM to 02:00 AM. Between 02:00 AM and 07:30 AM Anantara Vilamoura reception will provide assistance to all The Residences at Victoria guests. The Hotel has a 24h security service."

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Deserted!

Huge property in the middle of many apartment complexes. 3 bed apartment clean & well equipped. But it completely lacked any atmosphere - no one there! Guests or staff...

The front desk was always staffed when we visited but no one poolside. The outdoor restaurant felt like you were eating in a 'pop up' in a large open space. Only 1 other table occupied whilst we were there for lunch. We used pool & restaurant at Anatara for rest of the stay as there was definitely more atmosphere there. There are no shops at all nearby so either order an online shop ahead (min spend 75 euros) or have a hire car. Make sure you book the courtesy bus well ahead to ensure you get a space, taxi to Marina is 17 euros if booked via reception. 9 euros to return from marina taxi rank. If you want a very quiet stay with no interaction with anyone else this is your property!

Amazing service

Review by Rebecca S Godalming, United Kingdom

A wonderful resort with great facilities, our apartment was spacious, clean and well serviced. The highlight of the stay had to be the staff and the service. We ate and drank at the Piazza most days, whether it was breakfast, lunch or just drinks...

Nuno and Kelly were, simply put, amazing, they were incredibly attentive despite being constantly busy. Always smiling and courteous they are the epitome of best in class service. Thank you Nuno and Kelly, for making our holiday very special!!

What a lovely place, with amazing staff

Review by 32ns Bristol, United Kingdom

We had a wonderful 3 night stay. 2 bedroom deluxe apartment overlooking the golf course. Apartment was large with a well equipped kitchen and large balcony...

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Special thanks goes to Nuno in the bar/restaurant, he was very kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

Could not fault

We booked a last minute holiday the first since the pandemic. We wanted a quieter resort which was in easy reach of facilities if we wanted to venture further afield. The residences met all our needs...

The apartment had everything you could ask for, equipped with all you need and cleaned to a high standard every day.

All staff could not do enough, they were happy to go the extra mile and stopped to chat when they had time. Victor and Kelly at the piazza bar were exceptional.

Taxis arrived within 5 minutes and the shuttle service when booked was excellent.

We had a bed and breakfast package and breakfast was in the next door Anatara hotel, the service here was excellent staff were friendly and food choice was what you would expect in a 5 star hotel.

The marina at Vilamoura offers great restaurants and the beach has bars and great facilities. To get here you do have to book the shuttle ( which is free) or book a taxi, for 10€ a journey it's great to have the choice to stay by the pool or join the livelier crowd in Vilamoura.

Problem after problem after problem

Review by Hol_06 Essex

Currently on holiday at The residences at the moment (3ads a 2 1/2 yrs and a 14 month) but our experience is leaving quite a bad taste in our mouths, now I cannot fault the apartment whatsoever, we have a 3 bedroom and it is lovely, not overly child friendly but no complaints, unfortunately that’s where the good news ends for us, we arrived on Sunday at 2pm at 7pm we wanted dinner, all restaurants closed and we were unable to get 24hr room service which is provided by the Anantara hotel next door, eventually at 10pm we walked up to the Anantara where they said they had no idea why we couldn’t be provided with room service, we ordered some food for the children but to be honest it was not worth the money at all, for Anantara you’d expect more. Yesterday we pre booked seats on the shuttle bus to the marina at 10am for today and at 10am today we arrived they had booked 11ppl in a 6 seat van and not provided car seats as promised so we ended up not getting our shuttle and it took them an hour to arrange a new one, There doesn’t really seem to be a care given by the staff which is frustrating as they don’t seem to understand their mistakes. A car is essential as far as we are concerned as there is nowhere to eat in walking distance or a supermarket for that matter no matter what people say, from talking to other people it seems pre covid there was a lot more on offer and they have just stayed on a cut back basis. Overall we are here for 4 nights and it has all been tainted
