The official language spoken in Vilamoura is Portuguese, but it’s not uncommon to hear other languages such as Spanish being spoken either, due to Portugal’s close proximity to Spain. Even if you’re not fluent in Portuguese, you shouldn’t have any problems with communicating as English is widely spoken throughout the more touristic areas. It’s always polite to try and learn a bit of the local language before travelling to a destination.
