Hey there,painters! Sorry for this incredibly late post but we didn’t had time to do it earlier..We’re sorry! This is the first travel log made by the SU Team and I have to confess we’re rather excited to write about it. We went to Vilamoura, a town in south of Portugal where it’s always sunny and you will surely need some SPF to protect you.
WHERE TO STAY: Vilamoura has a lot of hotels yet what we advice to you all is to stay in a house; Almost all the houses in Vilamoura are in house complex so it’s quite cosy. It works has a hotel except you have a house and more privacy. Also, you will have access to the pool’s complex and a mini bar, with more accessible prices.
WHERE TO GO – DAY: The number 1 place to go is definitely… Their beach. You have plenty of them to pick but you always have to keep in mind that you’ll need a car or so to travel – the distances are always big! The water is very clean and the sand is gorgeous. You can also go to Vilamoura’s marina, where they have a lot of cafes and ice cream shops.
WHERE TO GO – NIGHT: So Vilamoura at night was kind of a let down; we were promised a lot of discos, bars and a lively night town overall; this was not true. We don’t know if it was because of being July and not August but you have only a few options: two huge discos, one called Seven, the other called Bliss; the later however is really far away from civilization so beware if you don’t have a car/money for a taxi; the marina is also very pretty at night but all of the stores in it close really soon (we went there at 2 am and they were all closed already) so that just leave us with another option: the casino. If you like casinos then by all means go there, we are sure that it is very pretty.
So this was basically all there was to Vilamoura: it is a really pretty and HOT place where the people LOVE to exercise, go to the (very good) beach and at night go to a disco. A warning however: if you don’t have a car then you will have a bad time to get to places unless you stay in your house 24/7. This is it for our first travel log, hope you painters enjoyed it and we will see you next week!
