Stay in Vilanova Resort, a self-catering unit and enjoy the proximity to the eating and shopping areas. This resort is visited by couples, families, groups of travellers and even solo travellers. Besides friendly service and facilities, its well-equipped kitchen is the main USP.

Room Types

Vilanova Resort is equipped with 216 contemporary studios and apartments. These are functional accommodations furnished with kitchenettes—electric hob, toaster, microvan, fridge, electric kettle, cutleries, and other basic kitchenware are available. Designed to offer a comfortable stay, the rooms are air conditioned and customised with safe deposit, WiFi internet, TV with satellite, telephone, furnished balcony, dining table and chairs for four guests, separate living room with sofa/couch and table, and more—you might have to locally pay for some of the room facilities. Most of the rooms have twin beds—approach the management for extra bed and crib. Accommodations are spacious and offers either sea or pool area, depending on the location. The rooms are also cleaned daily and clean linens and fresh towels are provided every day. 

Food, Drink and Entertainment

This is a self-catering unit with a poolside bar that serves scrumptious light meals and snacks at breakfast and lunch. It also serves hot and cold beverages and some alcoholic drinks from morning till early evening. You can prepare all your meals in the kitchen—there are shops and malls around the hotel. But in case you’re in a mood to explore the local cuisine, there are plenty of restaurants, clubs and bars in the immediate neighbourhood. You can also visit the main strip which is about 12 munities on foot and indulge in numerous eating joints that come within pocket-friendly budget. 

Sports, Games and Entertainment

Built within a landscaped garden, there is a large outdoor swimming pool with a kid’s paddle pool and a poolside bar in the adjoining. There are parasols and loungers around the pools—do approach the front desk for beach towels and lilos. The garden is ideal for children—well, even adults can play various games. You can also play tennis, billiards and darts, but if a poolside holiday isn’t your style, you can head to the beaches—there are around four beaches. The nearest beach is about 900 metres, and the main beach (located in Albufeira) is approximately 1.5 km from the hotel. Balaia Golf Village (3 km) and Pine Cliffs Golf Course (5.5 km) are the golf courses located nearby, but if you travel another 5 km, you will come across five more golf courses. 


Centrally located in Areias de Sao Joao (Albufeira is the neighbouring town—they’re twin towns), Vilanova Resort is a three-star destination. The resort is built around a landscaped garden that is full of ornamental plants. The property is divided into many villas, featuring apartments and studios. You will find numerous restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and malls around the hotel—the main strip is 1.2 km from the hotel. Many relate Areias de Sao Joao and Albufeira to thrilling water sports activities and incredible parties and both are accessible within 10 minutes on foot. Aldeia das Acoteias, Quarteira, Cavacos, Gale and Evaristo are few seaside towns and villages ideal for day trips. The harbour is around 3.5 km away and distance to Faro Airport is 30 km from the hotel.
