Just spent a blissful week in Carvoiera. We stayed in Vale de Lapa & I would recommend it highly. The accommodation itself was a 2 bed townhouse-style apartment, big, bright & spotlessly clean. The resort grounds were gorgeous - really well landscaped & a meandering river ran through the whole site. While this was lovely to look at, the racket... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and absolutely everything was impeccable, clean, welcoming, modern. The food was amazing, the pools were clean and spacious. My only complaint was the location was a little ways from the beach but it was a nice walk :)

Just back from a fantastic 12 night stay at Vale da Lapa, this is our 4th visit here since it opened and we have never been disappointed. The suites are extremely spacious and well equipped for a family holiday. Our suite was meters from the pool and we had a beautiful garden. the resort gardens are very well maintained and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights during July. As this resort is not situated in Carvoeiro (3-4 km away) you will need a car if you are going here. Our first impression is that this is not a 5 star hotel/resort merely +4* for accommodations and 3* for the rest of the complex. - The houses are spacious... More

Travelled for a week in May, Weather was poor at the beginning of the week but the indoor pool was a godsend. Staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you especially Ana. My mother in law has an intolerance to gluten and the restaurant could not have done more to accommodate her. The food was very nice and... More

Enjoyed our stay here, we were travelling as a couple and wanted a few days in a nice room with relaxing surroundings and had little intention of doing to much. This was what we got, amazing suites which are massive and situated in gardens. We stayed in room 21 which enjoyed the sun all afternoon so we could sit out... More

We booked this resort for a mother and daughters break for 4 people. We went all inclusive. When we got to the resort we were happy to find we were upgraded from a 2 bedroom villa to a 3 bedroom with its own pool. The resort pool and restaurant were very good. The breakfast was average but you had everything... More

Just spent two weeks here, and it is one of the few places I would return to. The staff were very pleasant courteous and accommodating, We were half board and the food although good quality became very repetitive, the suite was about 3 times the normal space i would expect and is actually unusually better than the photographs the only...

We arranged a week's break at very short notice. We have stayed before a number of times. We had a very relaxing time. It is comfortable and clean and the staff are very helpful. I would recommend a hire car - plenty of parking available. Plenty of wonderful places to visit, nice beaches etc. within a short drive. Will be... More
