Modern, luxury family-style resort consisting of 69 self-contained suites - ranging from one to four bedrooms - set in landscaped gardens. An ideal location for relaxed holidays.
Spacious surroundings, well thought-out design and brand-new look combined with the facilities on offer make this an ideal option for families - no nasty surprises or holiday horror stories here. For all intents and purposes this is part of the 5* Hilton, and all guests have freedom of use of all the Hilton amenities.
There are four types of properties available to rent for holidays: 14 one-bedroom suites, 47 two-bedroom suites, 4 three-bedroom suites and 4 four-bedroom suites, sleeping between four and ten people. The rooms are generously proportioned, all properties have their own kitchens plus balconies or terraces, and come complete with a range of facilities including wide-screen TVs, CD players, A/C and fully equipped kitchens with ceramic hobs, microwaves, fridge-freezers, washing machines, dishwashers, etc.
The Hilton Vilamoura (built by the same developer) is next door, and includes an all-day dining facility, a fine dining restaurant (seasonal), a poolside bar and a cocktail bar. As Cascatas itself also has a poolside bar. For self-catering , the nearest shops are about a five minute drive. Vilamoura itself has a wide choice of shops, bars and restaurants.
Between As Cascatas and the Hilton Vilamoura, guests have the options of two main outdoor pools, a child-free romantic pool, a children’s pool, a heated indoor pool and a gym, plus the facilities of the adjacent 7Seven Spa Vilamoura. The Paradise Island Kids’ Club for children aged 4 to 12 includes climbing frames, adventure toys and games, and supervision from qualified staff.
What could be improved?
The ‘hospital corridor’ approach to the apartments is a little off-putting. Once inside however, they’re as luxurious as you would hope for.
As Cascatas is within walking distance of Pinhal golf course and the Michelin-starred restaurant Willie’s.
Rua do Brasil, just outside Vilamoura. Follow the signs to the Hilton. At the Hilton island, turn up by the left hand side of the hotel, then first right. As Cascatas is about 100m on your right, just before Willie’s. Plenty of free parking.
