Girls trip away to the sun, can't beat a relaxing holiday. We booked the Residences at Victoria as the price fitted our budget. Even though the complex is located a good 10 minute bus journey from the marina in Vilamoura where all the night life was we didn't mind. The was a free bus that left from outside the complex and dropped you at the marina (scheduled times). You did have to make sure you were on time for the bus as sometimes there was a queue and if you couldn't get on the bus you had to wait for it to come back again and make another journey. Some people just ordered a taxi to take them in.
The complex is located along a golf course and beside the Victoria hotel which you can also use their facilities. They had a lovely pool there so we would go and sunbathe there a few times. Not saying that the pool at The Residences at Victoria wasn't any good but we preferred the other one.
Apartment we got overlooked the golf course so at times was quiet and other times you could watch them playing golf. The apartment was two bedroomed and spacious. King room and a twin room. You could also have used the sofa for a bed if needed. We had a bathroom and an ensuite so for the four of us it was great to have two bathrooms to get ready. The kitchen was well equipped and modern and had an extra balcony part that we were able to hang out washing.
The staff at the complex were lovely and as one of us had a birthday they organised a lovely chocolate cake for us when we arrived (on the house!). It made the start of our holiday and birthday celebrations just that bit special.
We ate a few times at the pool bar for lunch which was as you would expect. We ate our evening meals down around the Marina in Vilamoura which is lovely at night, a great buzz but not crazy mad like Albufeira. There are also some lovely shops around the Marina which open late which we would dander around before heading for our bus transfer back to apartment.
