Vilamoura is a sensational place to holiday. If you want pazzaz, glitz and luxury, forget Marbella and St tropez, visit Vilamoura on the Algarve. I love it. I have visited both Marbella and St tropez, but Vilamoura and the golden triangle of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago has the panche, but not the "plastic" look.
Marbella is as fake as plastic surgery and St Tropez is like a gold plated watch you buy at a market stall. Vilamoura and the Golden Triangle in the Algarve are wear real superstars come to get out of the limelight. They are in the Algarve in their 1000's but they love the Algarve as it is not "in your face" I love it as it is just fantastic. Nightlife, bars, restaurants, food from €5 to €500 and just everything you need.
