Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great villa for a family holiday!
Casa Selatar in Quinta do Lago is a perfect place to base yourself in the Algarve. The villa is well equipped but it was the heated pool that made it perfect. The pool is basked in sunshine from dawn till dusk should you wish to lounge around. The surroundings for the villa are well maintained and the outlook on to the 6th tee of the Quinta do Lago North golf course makes for a beautiful setting. The sun shone every day which meant the our grandchildren(aged 2 and 4) spent most of the time in the pool or at the beach near Dos Passos restaurant. If your budget can take a hit then the prawns at Dos Passos are the best you will find anywhere. Our trip was complete when on our last night we saw a dolphin swim close to the beach. Great accommodation and a great place to stay if you are visiting Portugal.

Située aux abords d'un Golf, cette maison a un très agréable jardin et une jolie piscine permettant une réelle détente. David, le propriétaire, s'est montré compréhensif et réactif quand nous avons fait quelques demandes. Les installations sont de bonne qualité. Le mobilier mérite toutefois un sérieux rafraîchissement.

Spacious and well equipped private villa
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week in Casa Selatar which was ideally located for the golf in Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo.This was our first time to this part of the algarve, but won't be our last! David was a very helpful host and was very responsive to any query. The golf was fantastic, but very expensive ..... adverse exchange rates have made everything seem costly. The pool looked great, but in November it is just a little too cold even with the heating on. A pool cover would be a good idea to retain the heat at night. We also had blue skies, 20 c days for all of our week which does make all the difference for a winter break.... In summary; great location, villa, host and weather....

Thanks Peter,I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. We like to create an attractive environment in the evenings with the glow of the pool lighting which would not be possible with a pool cover. It is a bit of a trade off when the nights are colder although we have managed 28 degree C in November before. Maybe we should provide a cover and let our guests choose if they wish to use it. Kind regards David

great spot to base your holiday
fantastic villa in a great location with all that you need for a great family holiday , we with a family of 6 kids and my wife and i had plenty of room great pool and outside space ,surrounded by 4 golf courses within mins of each other , the only one negative which is personal is that the master suite bed was quite small and mattress was very soft with what we are used to apart from that i would book again this summer if i could get all the kids and my wife to give me dates that we are all free , all well organised by david . cheers neil d walker

Thanks Neil,much appreciated, I guess the mattress is a difficult one as guests have different preferences,I tend towards a firmer one myself but as most Portuguese mattresses are very hard we thought best to go for a softer option. It is a very high quality British mattress with 3000 pocket springs. Whilst I agree the master bedroom could be grander the bathroom is considerably larger than normal. Thanks for staying with us and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best wishes David

HOMELY COMFORT IN MAGNIFICENT GARDENS WITH WELL HEATED POOL & GREAT VIEWS
This home is extremely comfortable but not ostentatious so we could relax with our 2 year old grandson & our family. We all spent hours in the gorgeous large & very well heated pool & then enjoyed many BBQs overlooking the wonderful golf course & garden views. Plenty of garden chairs, tables & sunbeds & our grandson enjoyed many picnics in the exquisite & well kept gardens. Location is perfect - walk or 3 min drive to the lake/restaurants/water sports at QDL or park at Lake & walk on to the QDL beach. Also, a few minutes drive to good supermarket & shops. Casa Selatar is in a beautiful & peaceful setting & we all came away refreshed & revitalised. It is by far the Best Value in QDL. The owner was a pleasure to deal with & was extremely efficient in organising our reservation. He was also a very honest person & heated the pool as requested. We were disappointed on many occasions with pool heaters suddenly not working so really appreciated Davids efforts to have this magnificent pool heated to perfection! We highly recommend this fabulous home. Thank you so much, David ....

Spacious, comfortable, beautiful views
A last minute decision to book this property was handled brilliantly by the owner David who made everything very simple. The pool heating (it being late October) was turned on as soon as our money landed and the house was made ready for us in just a couple of hours. The weather had been horrid but the house was never cold, and by mid-week the pool was really very pleasant indeed - the October storms didn't bother us in our steaming pool! It's a grand building, very interesting to stay in, and well stocked with everything you could need including 4 sizes of cafetiere and a couple of decanters too! The wifi never let us down so my kids were happy, and the TV had a great choice of channels for the evening we chose to stay home. Just a 20 minute stroll to the shops and restaurants in one direction, and a 30 minute stroll to the Lake and eateries and amenities there, we didn't even need a car - it really was a lovely relaxing break. To the rear of the house the pool area is well equipped with sun loungers and chairs and an outside dinner table for 6, and the uninterrupted views from the edge of the pool down onto the fairway of the famous golf course, were just breathtaking. Really lovely week had by all 5 of us - 2 stressed out parents and a teen, a nearly-teen and an 8 year old. Thanks so much :)

Just to say if you use a car there is free parking by the salt water lake (a 3 minute drive from the villa) and you can walk to the Ocean beach from there across the bird santuary protected Ria Formosa. The outside dining table will seat a maximum of 10 persons.

Spacious villa in private grounds
Although this villa has four bedrooms, we booked it for just my wife and myself to give us plenty of room during a low season holiday. It has all the expected facilities, including wifi and a wide choice of satellite channels. The gardens are extensive, giving on to a Quinta do Lago golf hole. The swimming pool is a good size, if a touch fresh. We would certainly be happy to stay here again.
