As a self cater apartment well equipped self contained and located within the Old Village and its facilities. Would need to consider distance from beaches and the town if not mobile.
We stayed in The Old Village Apartments from 19th to 26th May, 2011. It was a delightful week and the weather was brilliant. The Staff were excellent - will have to compliment Celia and Belinha at the Reception Desk for their courtesy, helpfullness, friendliness and efficiency. Also the lady at the Pool Bar was so friendly and courteous (did not get her name). The accomodation was excellent and the Studio was so well equipped - everything we required and even more! We really liked the decor and personal touch of the Studio - right down to the pictures on the walls, the pot pourri and the candles - every effort was made to ensure/create a homely ambience.. The Village is well designed and has colourful gardens. All 3 pools are nestled discretely in different locations throughout the Village and are surrounded by some colourful climbers, giving total privacy. We would highly recommend this lovely Village.
Towels only changed once during our stay. The internet cost was 3 Euro per hour - expensive and did not last the time stated.
I loved how quiet it was- so quaint didn't feel like you where in a big apartment complex. Apartments are so well designed and the little cobbled streets where so elegant. Loads of restaurants and swimming pools tucked around the resort. Loved it and would definitely go back. Only 4euro in a taxi to the marina.
Original apartment was cramped and poorly heated with one small portable oil filled radiator. After complaining we were transferred the 2nd day to on excellent apartment with air conditioning/heating in the village Prestige block. If such an apartment had not been available we would have had an uncomfortable 2 weeks.

We stayed 30-3 Oct '11 our stay was so relaxed the staff were so helpful and pleasant unfortunately we did not get the lady's name at reception. Lovely location and beautiful surroundings. Will definitely be going back! Highly recommend this lovely village.
Apartment was beautiful, location excellent, loved roof tarrace. Shop and bars/ restaurants around made life easier. Friendly staff. I would recommend to a friend, I also will come back to old village with pleasure.
I thought I would have clean towels and beddings every day but unfortunately turned out they only change those once a week.
Location and agreable enviorenment
All the staff in the village were very helpful and friendly. The village was very clean and well maintained. I was there on my own with my two boys (10 and 6) and I felt very safe and comfortable walking around during the day and the evening. Swimming pools are lovely, especially the dolphin pool.
Would have been nice to be able sample more portugese cuisine instead of the all day English breakfasts that were on offer. The food was generally satisfactory but not terribly imaginative.
The location was great and lots of restaurants on site. Room was well equipped.
Payiing for sunbeds was not what I would expect.
The Old Village is a self-contained complex, we were there for 1 week and somedays, we didn't leave it at all, staying at the pool and then eating in one of the 6 restaurants. The reception staff, the cleaning staff, the staff at the main pool and the bar at the main pool were all excellent and very helpful
The layout of the old village is loverly,our studio apartment was ideal,shop had all we needed with others not to far away.
While we were there weather wasn't to good,so maybe a indoor pool or heated pool would of been good,but certainly didn't spoil our stay.
The old village is a very pretty setting
I didn't like the fact that the apartment we had was not that private, you could see into the apartment opposite so didn't feel very comfortable about sitting out on the patio.
We stayed at The Old Village for 8 nights at the end of June 2012. We hired a rental car, which made life a lot easier - there is plenty of room to park very close to the apartments. All the staff (reception, pool bar and catering) were extremely friendly, approachable and helpful. We chose to walk to the marina and back most nights for dinner (about 15-20 minutes, once you find the quicker route through the park) which was fine for us as we like to keep active or I'm sure a taxi would only be a few minutes. The marina was beautiful (particularly recommend Il Lamparo restaurant, gorgeous food, lovely outside sitting area and great staff) and the beaches are great. The beaches are quite a walk away, but we drove there so didn't find it a problem. Our apartment was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed and it was light and airy, our towels were changed once during the time we stayed, but that was fine for us. We rarely heard any noise from passers by even though we were in the heart of the apartments (although school hols might be different!). In essence, we would highly recommend staying here and will definitely come back.
Can't fault this place at all, if I had to write a negative it would only be that you had to pay for sun loungers by the pool - but at least it stops people hogging more than they need and the pool staff were very helpful and the whole area was kept clean.
Great facilities, staff very friendly and helpful, lovely room and a very nice roof terrace that gave us a bit of privacy if we wanted. I would love to go back and stay again.
Our room was modern with everything we needed including an oven and wash machine. It was spacious even though there was just the two of us staying. The grounds were beautifuly kept and the whole place was peaceful and relaxing. It was also only a lovely 15 min walk to marina but taxis were very cheap as an alternative from walking. The staff were helpful and welcoming. The pools were quiet and clean. It was a very enjoyable stay overall and would definitely return and recommened.
Only thing was that you are charged for the sun loungers morning and afternoon...upon booking I don't remember being informed about this, I would have expected it to be included in the price. We went when it was not a peak time so seemed a cheek to ask us to pay when there was nobody at the pool anyways! Cleaners only make beds, nothing was cleaned while we were there but because it was an apartment it was understandable and we cleaned up after ourselves anyways but would have been nice if the bathroom was cleaned.
