we stumbled across Vigilia park by accident really and is somewhere we usually wouldn’t go to be honest, we usually go high end all inclusive and let companies do it all for us
Anyway, after a bad experience with the first choice that didn’t get resolved we thought we would look for a cheeky cheap week away for Easter.
So, I asked my brother who has a couple of timeshares if there was a swap he could go anywhere and this was the only one available so we booked.
When we got to the Vigilia park I thought what have we done, where are we and when we entered our apartment I though oh no , this is gonna be bad this looks as basic as it gets and everything looks tired.
I nearly turned around and said let’s look for something else BUT a deep breath and an OK we can do this from my wife and we decided to give it a go.
All I can say is it was a great decision, yes stuff was old and bashed and worn out in the apartment but I found out we were on the roadside that is about to be refurbished but everything was clean, the bath shower had hot water running out of it the beds were put me up beds and very uncomfortable but ok it was a base .
NOW for the good stuff
The staff here work non stop to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The pool on the 4th floor is very good lots of sunbeds very private and quiet.
The bar up there made it for us especially the workers they were all kind and pleasant, Isabella and Carolina just 2 of an excellent bunch, can’t remember the mans name up there but he saw us waiting to leave and went out of his way to shake each one of our hands and wish us safe travels .
4pm-5pm is happy hour up there which is good well it was for me lol .
They do food up there we mainly had toasted sandwiches and ice creams but saw others with pasta dishes that looked nice, everywhere behind that bar was spotlessly clean.
Downstairs on the ground floor there are shops as the apartments are built on top and there is a local place its nearest the reception that does spit roast chicken and duck and racks of lamb, was very cheap and very good , we went out to different bars and restaurants and was surprised how cheap the area as a whole was as its not really that tourist .
The beach if you like beaches were nearby with black sand but not very big or good, to be honest, but Vigilia is nearby.
Vigilia has stunning views from the roof top and the sun seemed to never go down.
We had a really good week here and are shocked really how good a time we actually had at a back to basics place.
I think we may be back one day we had that good of a time and the people are so friendly, thank you Vigilia park
