Visited here for a long weekend in late November for my birthday. Our villa was perfect - spacious living room/dining room and kitchen, upstairs had a large double bedroom with an en suite, a smaller bedroom with two single beds and another separate bathroom. Nicely decorated and lovely and warm as it was cool outside. The surrounding golf courses are...

Wandering around the general area of Quinta Lago you may bump into any number of Celebrities from Entertainment and Sport. This does push prices up for restaurants however so shop around.

We first stayed at Vilar do Golf in 2007 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but this visit not so much. The villa was as expected very well equipped and very clean but we were disappointed that the sofa was stained and extremely uncomfortable and there was a slightly unpleasant smell in the bedroom, and this along with a few other...

Firstly the accommodation was superb. We had a two bedroom apartment which was excellent. The swimming pool was wonderful. Now for the negatives - the gentleman who checked us in wasn't up to the usual Diamond standard. He was not very professional and when we asked questions regarding places to eat he said there was nothing in walking distance other...

Amazing place, accommodation is clean, modern and has everything you need. I'd say it's not very child friendly as it's slippery hard floors everywhere but I suppose you don't often find carpets abroad. I think in general it's more for the older generation than kids but you can still have a good time with the family. Make sure you take...
