Why should you choose to stay in an Airbnb in Vilamoura

Accommodation is always a huge consideration when traveling and in recent times this often comes to the Airbnb vs hotel debate.

This is no different in Vilamoura with a variety of Airbnb options available.

There are a number of aspects to consider when looking at potential Airbnbs.

More privacy

Staying in an Airbnb often provides more privacy than a traditional hotel as Airbnb accommodation is usually separate.

This also allows for more freedom as there aren’t as many strict rules regarding house-cleaning and the like.

Rather, there are usually simple common courtesy guidelines.

This freedom also extends to having a full kitchen and separate rooms, making Airbnb a great choice for longer stays.

More unique and authentic experience

While hotels are fairly similar in most parts of the world, Airbnb can differ hugely by location.

This can provide a more unique and authentic experience of staying in a new place.

This can also allow for meeting local residents and learning local customs and recommendations.

This integration is helpful in bridging the gap between being a tourist and understanding the area, people, and culture better.

Often better value than a hotel especially when you are traveling as a family

When it comes to price, Airbnb can often work out as better value than a hotel, especially considering all the benefits that come with it.

If you are traveling as a family or in a group, it can also be significantly cheaper than a hotel.

Conclusion

The Algarve Coast of Portugal abounds with amazing holiday destinations with Vilamoura as one of the top choices.

Between the beautiful beaches and stunning resorts, a trip to Vilamoura is bound to be amazing.
