We returned yesterday from a 9 day break in Ponta Grande. We had a super time, the pool is fabulous. We booked our villa through owners direct and whilst it didn't meet all the criteria that was listed on that (clean linens were supposed to be provided on a weekly basis, ours were never cleaned, the TV did not work...

We arrived from Australia via Budapest worn out and in need of rest & relaxation. The reception staff were friendly, helpful and professional. They encouraged my efforts to practice spanish, and forgave my lack of portuguese! The villa was huge, clean, modern and magnificent! Loved the roomy patio and fully equipped kitchen. A particular highlight was the resort restaurant, and... More

Arrived to a very relaxed ambiance late at night. We were bought into a very clean villa which was an accurate representation of pictures on websites we had looked at (although the beds were a little bit hard for our comfort, ending up in my Dad sleeping on the comfier sofa). The food was made to order and made very... More

A two bedroom, two bathroom spacious house with a outside courtyard. On the whole very good, could do with minor upgrades of decoration but both families were pleased. The day before leaving...

Have been told to try this for ages by friends of ours and have never managed to do so until yesterday. The food, service and fantastic staff made lunch time very enjoyable. We will be returning soon for an evening meal, but the lunch time menu is second to none - 100% recomend it to anyone

Like most of the recent reviewers we were very impressed with Ponta Grande. The apartments were beautifully spacious. Dated? Perhaps but only slightly and very well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and much larger than usual. The restaurant on site is good and excellent value. We were there in March but they still had a cabaret night which was... More
