Stayed here for a week with family, and it's a very peaceful place - It's lovely to wake to the local birdsong. All the grounds are well manicured and looked after. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. The hotel were happy to arrange airport transfers, and they run a series of shuttle trips using their own...

Just got back from a wonderful week at Vilar do Golf. Our apartment (7) was spacious, well equipped and clean. The staff on site were first class. As Diamond Resort members, we didn't have to pay for WI-Fi, but would agree that others shouldn't have to pay for that either. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The entertainment staff...

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. All units are equipped with everything you need, are clean and very comfortable. The facilities on-site are ample and there is a variety of daily activities. The staff have been very friendly and accommodating. We hope to return soon.

My friend and I visited for an over night visit as we got a very sweet booking deal. Wanted to spend our last night in a bit of luxury however our stay felt from the first moment of greeting reception, unwelcome and extremely rushed. The receptionist seemed in heads down mode and gave us a very unfriendly service. We were...

First of all this is a timeshare resort sorry vacation ownership and you will be asked to attend a presentation just say no if you are worried about such things. I'd never been to Portugal before so didn't know what to expect. Some form of transport would be an advantage either car, taxi, pushbike which you can hire on the...

The location is beautiful surrounded by the golf course. The grounds are well kept but I wasn't impressed by the Bobby Jones restaurant. Our villa was on the edge of the fairway and was surrounded by Pine trees which looked really nice but did block the sun for much of the day. The Birdie Lounge was good value for money..

A tranquil resort set in rolling countryside surrounded by beautifully manicured golf courses. It is placed on the most prestigious international golf course on the Playa do Golf. The leisure facilities include two super outdoor swimming pools and a heated indoor pool. There are pleasant walks amongst the links but a car is required to explore the riches of the...
