My family, 2 adults, 2 11yr stayed here beginning of August 2014. We arrived on the early flight so couldn't book in till time specified but looked around and had a drink. We were amazed with our family suite villa, could not fault it! Massive, electric shutters, air con, 2 on-suites and further toilet downstairs. Fully equip kitchen, dishwasher, washing... More

Despite some of the negative reviews on here, my family and I really enjoyed our holiday at Vale De Lapa. The villas were beautiful, loads of space and in a lovely setting. I thought the electric shutters were a good idea as it can be a nuisance with sunlight coming through flimsy curtains on holiday. The pool area was lovely,... More

We came back on Sat 2 August from Vale da Lapa and had a lovely time. We stayed for 7 nights on a room only basis. On first impressions we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the villa which is furnished to a high standard. The kitchen is fitted with a dishwasher and washing machine and fridge/freezer. There is... More

My husband & I had 2 weeks at this hotel (returning July 24th 2014) & can't fault it. The rooms are fabulous, huge & kept spotless with maids daily (they even washed up). There are full sized washing machines, dishwashers, ovens, microwaves & fridge freezers, air conditioning, TV's, safes (free) dining tables & huge beds that were very comfortable. Everything... More

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 :)

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
