We loved the accommodation in our villa which was clean and had everything you would need especially for families. But we had frayed towels and holes in our small bath robes and a blood-stained sheet was put on our bed! Breakfast was good but the evening meal was far below 5* standard especially with an al la carte menu which...

Stayed here for a week in May with our nearly 2 year old. The accommodation is perfect for families as it's spacious and has a full kitchen with washer/ dryer. The pool area is lovely, makes it easy to relax while the children play together. Breakfast was a good spread but the rest of the meals were average. There are...

Just arrived back from Vale da Lapa, after a 5 day break. What a wonderful resort this is, wasn't sure what to expect when we booked, but no need to worry. We had Suite No.1 which was as near to everything as possible. Straight out of our door right by pool, restaurant, spa etc. All the staff are brilliant, they...

The Villas are actually amazing I was shocked as I did not expect it to be that nice. It was like you were living in your own fully furbished apartment it is absolutely stunning.

Stay here last week and I cannot praise the quality of the villas and the staff highly enough. We stayed for six nights and wished we had stayed longer. The rooms are finished to a high standard and the pool was great. As it was the start of the season the resort was not that busy, however , at peak...

I can see this being a great place to do a multi-family get-together someplace sunny. The villas were well equipped (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, washing machine, cooking facilities and equipment), clean, and spacious. Ideal for someone like me who has dietary restrictions. The restaurant food was nice, but a bit salty. Aside from the salt, it was well prepared and...

Very nice view and facilities, everything is clean and the employees are great (not always coordinated during meals), but always very friendly. The food was Excellent (except the Burgers :)). The swimming pool is small and gets crowded really easy and the “all included” is not that great because you can’t even have something to eat in the afternoon (despite...
