The resort was clean and comfortable. Because of the time of year many restaurants were closed and the restaurant on site only opened from 6-8 and only offered a set menu not a la carte. The food was basic and not worth the money. We only ate there once. The bar was uninviting

Dear Marco, Thank you so much for staying at Jardim do Vau and for your kind review. Indeed our restaurant/bar has been in a transition period, as a new F&B management will take over this from tomorrow onward. Jardim do Vau tried at it most to keep our clients satisfied, but unfortunately this was not the position of the previous F&B manager. We trust that everything will go well now and we hope to welcome you again soon so that you can experience a good meal at our restaurant.

The 2 bedroom apartments usually have a double-Queen bed in one room, twin beds in 2nd bedroom, and a sofa that makes into a bed in the living room. There are 2 complete bathrooms. You may have to use the patio chairs for meal times, but the table will certainly accommodate your group. Also, the coffee table provides another eating area. Children may actually prefer it! The 2 bedroom accommodation is very roomy, lots of closet space and very well equipped. We have stayed at J do V. for several years and have never been diisappointed. Enjoy! Returning shortly!

Yes, there is a stove top, no oven, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster in the one bedroom units. If I remember correctly the China service is for 4. There are pots, pans, fry pans and a decent size refrigerator in every unit. It might be wise to take some “ throw away” plastic containers for leftovers or extra servings to be stored. I always take coffee filters as well because we tend to use a lot.( standard size) The units are very comfortable and the ladies who do the cleaning service are very good, pleasant and efficient. Enjoy!

Transfer from airport is required, my wife and I book private taxi through our tour operator by far the best option as shuttle bus takes far to long.
