We came back on Sat 2 August from Vale da Lapa and had a lovely time. We stayed for 7 nights on a room only basis. On first impressions we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the villa which is furnished to a high standard. The kitchen is fitted with a dishwasher and washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is...

My husband & I had 2 weeks at this hotel (returning July 24th 2014) & can't fault it. The rooms are fabulous, huge & kept spotless with maids daily (they even washed up). There are full sized washing machines, dishwashers, ovens, microwaves & fridge freezers, air conditioning, TV's, safes (free) dining tables & huge beds that were very comfortable. Everything...

Just spent a blissful week in Carvoiera. We stayed in Vale de Lapa & I would recommend it highly. The accommodation itself was a 2 bed townhouse-style apartment, big, bright & spotlessly clean. The resort grounds were gorgeous - really well landscaped & a meandering river ran through the whole site. While this was lovely to look at, the racket...

I stayed here with my boyfriend and absolutely everything was impeccable, clean, welcoming, modern. The food was amazing, the pools were clean and spacious. My only complaint was the location was a little ways from the beach but it was a nice walk :)

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during July. As this resort is not situated in Carvoeiro (3-4 km away) you will need a car if you are going here. Our first impression is that this is not a 5 star hotel/resort merely +4* for accommodations and 3* for the rest of the complex. - The houses are spacious...

Travelled for a week in May, Weather was poor at the beginning of the week but the indoor pool was a godsend. Staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you especially Ana. My mother in law has an intolerance to gluten and the restaurant could not have done more to accommodate her. The food was very nice and...

Enjoyed our stay here, we were travelling as a couple and wanted a few days in a nice room with relaxing surroundings and had little intention of doing to much. This was what we got, amazing suites which are massive and situated in gardens. We stayed in room 21 which enjoyed the sun all afternoon so we could sit out...

We booked this resort for a mother and daughters break for 4 people. We went all inclusive. When we got to the resort we were happy to find we were upgraded from a 2 bedroom villa to a 3 bedroom with its own pool. The resort pool and restaurant were very good.
