Arrived home Monday after a weeks stay! We had a wonderful time the apartments where home from homes and we felt so comfortable from our first evening everything you wanted and more we stayed in 2 which meant easy access to the pool and restaurant. The food was delicious and every meal we enjoyed just sometimes waited a little longer... More

The Villas themselves are of an excellent standard, maybe lacking a few essential items. Unfortunately the rest of the hotel doesn't live up to the same standard. I found it to be a little tired in areas e.g around the pool, not enough parasols, very old and tatty sun loungers etc. A major issue for us was the lack of... More

Excellent service.. The apartments are beautifully finished with everything that you need for the family. The kitchen is very equipped and modern and up to date. The location is a bit secluded and you really need a car to get around. We stayed half board and the food was nice with lots of variety even for the fussy eaters.

Clean, comfortable, really high standard accommodation. Highlight - ALL the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly - anything you asked for was never too much trouble! Food good but there are sooooo many fantastic restaurants locally and in neighbouring towns that a car is worth having. Some of the fish restaurants with lovely terraces and views are better if you... More

Recently spent a wonderful week here. The accommodation is 5 star. We stayed in a family suite which in effect is a two storey apartment fully kitted out, very modern, 2 bathrooms 3 toilets, living room, TV in each, very well appointed kitchen - lovely. Some have reviewed and complained about frogs but these did not disturb us. The pool... More

This is our second visit here and nothing has changed from the problems of last time. We only come back because of the fantastic local restaurants and quietness of the resort, Sesmarias. The villas are great, no complaints although there are a few signs of wear and tear exacerbated by a poor maintenance schedule. Thats where the good ends. The... More

We have just returned from a relaxing 9 days. It is the first time we have experienced, that the photos on Trip advisor and other website are not as good as first impressions we had on arrival at the resort. The 2 bedroom properties are extremely well equipped with both bedroom having en-suites. The ground floor is spacious with a... More

We've just got back from a ten day break at the Agua Vale da Lapa resort. We had a great time. We booked via Expedia and to be honest, we weren't 100% sure exactly what type of accommodation we had paid for. But when we got there we were amazed. We got a lovely two bedroom villa, with a large... More

We booked 3 bedroomed villa with its own pool through bookings.com for 6 nights. Villa was huge with a fully fitted kitchen lounge diner and 3 on suite bedrooms - master double upstairs with balcony :1 double and 1 twin downstairs with garden access. A bonus was Daily Maid service daily too. With towels and sheets changed during our stay... More

This is our second visit to Val de Lapa the first being three years ago. Without doubt it offers exceptional value for money particularly when discounted which is frequently. We arrived at 1230 to be told our accommodation was not available until1500 so we dumped our bags and stocked up in the local supermarket. The new Apolonia supermarket just south... More
