The beachs are a 30-40 min walk or for us a 15 min cycle (bike hire is v cheap) and are just stunning. The staff were friendly and it is...

Travelled with 3 friends for a 7 day break. We know the area from previous visits but this location turned out to be the best ever. As other reviewers have said the pool and surrounding area is great. We were in a first floor apartment which lacked for nothing. We even had fresh bread rolls delivered daily, apart from Sunday....

We stayed for 2 weeks in August and had two apartments. Overall the accommodation was lovely and the pool and snack bar were great. We were a bit disappointed with some issues bearing in mind how expensive the accommodation was. In one of our apartments the back door on the ground floor didn't lock and neither did the side gate...

We stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate our friends wedding anniversary and was upgraded to a garden apartment with a private pool. The apartment was very clean, air conditioned and spacious and the location was lovely and very close to the lake but within a short taxi journey of Vale do Lobo. There was also a lovely communal pool...

We got an 3rd floor apartment and there is no elevator, but it is worthwhile to climb with the luggage. The decoration is really with good taste, and the size of the apartment is very good. The balconies have a very good size and being on 3rd floor we are above all the houses. The kitchen is well equipped. The...
