Vitor's Village Resort Ferragudo Reviews
Vitors Village Ferragudo Portugal Jun 25, 2010
With my best friend I went to Vitors Village for 9 days.
We had the best time ever!
The Hotel is recently openend, since 2008, so it's all very new. Great, but also large appartments!
The Hotel has three swimmingpools, and a jacuzzi, a little mini market with every day fresh bread. They also have a restaurant called Purple, and on top with the best view a skyline bar. We can recommend the Sangria! :)
Hotelroom is just perfect, except, and this is really the only thing, the beds! So hard!
Ferragudo is a small town, about 5/10 minutes walking to the square, with very nice fishrestaurants. Really try Sueste :) You can choose your own fish..
The staff is very helpfull and kind!
There's also a busservice three times a day to Praia Grande, Praia dos Caneiros and Pintadinho. Great service!

The Perfect destination with Charm and Character Sep 02, 2010
We stayed at this hotel on the 5th September - 12th September 2010 as a couple, we booked this hotel after reading reviews on Tripadvisor as they were excellent and they were spot on!
Vitors Village was a excellent choice for accomdation and location.A 5/10 min walk in Ferragudo itself.The pools,grounds, rooms, restaurant and reception were spotless and very modern.
Rooms- Spacious rooms, all ammenities kettle, toaster, microwave, 2 electric cooker plates, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. maid service was excellent fresh towels everyday.
Supermarket- As other people have stated very bare shelfs in the shop, but they have all the neccessaties like water,bread,milk,cereal, sun cream etc.
Hotel Ammenities - 1 Adult Pool, 1 Family Pool, 1 Kids Pool and a Jacuzzi, never felt over crowded and could always get a sunbed.
For snacks around the pool you could eat at the snack bar which did a variety if food, pizzas 7 -8 euros, chips 2 euros, burgers, 5 euros and sandwiches 3-4 euros.
The Pools are open from 10am - 9pm and no lifeguard on duty.
We visited the Skyline bar a few times over our holiday in between 6 and 7pm they do a happy hour which is a % off the bill. I had a few cocktails and they were always around 4 euros a time but 6 euros at any other time, From the Skyline bar you get excellent sunset views of Ferragudo and the local area.
Vitors Village runs a courtesy bus to 3 of the local beaches and goes twice daily once about 10am and another one around 3pm and will pick you up later in the day. If you choose to walk it would take you around 20- 30 mins.
On the Praia De Grande beach we visited Kalu Beach bar excellent food and cocktails.
Purple Restaurant - We were on half board basis for the week , ate everyday for breakfast and had our evening meal here 5 nights and 2 nights down in the village.
breakfast consisted of Coffee,tea, cereal, fruit,bread,yoghurt, cheese,ham and a hot buffet of Bacon, scrambled eggs and beans. The later you went for breakfast the colder it would be, so i would recommend getting there early, it is served from 8am- 10am.
For the evening meal it was served in between 6pm and 10pm, a 3 course evening meal for starter soup or salad, main a meat dish or fish and for desert a choice of 4 or 5 deserts. The meals were very nice and they do a different theme every night.
For people who are self catering we knew where the 2 big supermarkets were but thought it would be a bit to far to walk but down in Ferragudo there was a butchers, fishmonger, and green grocers all within walking distance of each other so that could be a better option then going the supermarket.
Reception - We never went to the rep meeting with first choice, as reception would book any excursions to places you would like to visit and they were cheaper.
One morning we went to Fiesa Sand Sculptures which cost 16 euros each with transport highly recommend doing this.
Another day went to Slide and Splash waterpark which cost 26 euros each with transport. There was also a alot more excursions to go on and no problem with reception booking them for you.
Ferragudo itself was an excellent choice of resort for us, quaint, unspoilt fishing village. We walked around the whole of the village up back streets up to the top by the church with excellent views of Ferragudo.
In the heart of the Village the winding small cobbled alleyways and crooked steps lead to the central square which is surrounded by restaurants and a few bars giving a real impression of traditional portuguese culture.
A 10 minute walk from the village is the seventeenth century fort castelo de sao joao do arade which sits on the beach.
We visited a few bars and restaurants in Ferragudo there is around 10- 12 restaurants in total. One of which we visited twice for lunch Toc Toc on the main street, i tried the Piri Piri Chicken it was excellent, the second time we visited we both had the turkey kebabs again excellent and very reasonable prices, better value for money then in the UK.
Another restaurant we ate at was Farragood excellent food again we ate here twice for dinner one night i had the steak with mushroom sauce and my husband had steak Portuguese style, On our last night in ferragudo we dined here again, I had the Monkfish and prawn kebab with new potatoes highly recommend this, my hubby had lamd chops with mint sauce, both times we had excellent service and prices very reasonable.
A couple of the Bars we visited were JJs bar what do any cocktail for 3.50 euros and play up to date music and then another one L - Chaimine in the square which played football on the telly. Very good prices for Cocktails and the bar maid even booked us on a boat trip with a local man she knew for 15 Euros each.
Holiday Overall - Was a fantastic sun holiday, the hotel exceeded our expectations ,Ferragudo was a charming village and i highly recommend this hotel for couples, familys who are looking for a realxing holiday.
We shall be returning some time in the future........
