We travelled in the May half term and found that not much got going in these apartments until June, so it was very quiet with no activities or entertainment. However I would still recommend these apartments. The service at reception was absolutely excellent, they couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were kept very clean and had a very well... More

A group of 5 of us stayed here for 1 week and it was great, the 2 bed apartments are really spacious and clean with 2 toilets and showers. There is a/c in all rooms which was wonderful. The location is good as its in a quiet area but its a nice walk or short taxi ride to 2 nice... More

My wife and I returned here ten years after our first visit. From memory little had changed. The apartment was a good size. The kitchen well equipped. Reception staff more than helpful. Translating instructions on frozen food, where to get fresh bait and a license for fishing, bus timetables you asked they provided. Cleaners came daily. The location is not... More

We spent a week here at the start of May. The studio apartment was a perfect size for us with good amenities. Staff were helpful and the little shop on site provides the basics at relatively good prices. The location is about 20 minutes from the main resort of Praia do Roche it's close to Vau beach and it was... More

I was very impressed with the accommodation. The apartment was a great size. The food was very good too with waiter service in the evening. The only down side was the hotel was too far away from the town.

ALL IN ALL: This is lovely resort but if its action you are looking for it may be too tranquil for you. Its set next to the golf course from one side and have a beach near by so its peaceful and quiet. There is plenty to to do and see around if you willing to walk though. Staff is... More

Just back from a 10 day stay and felt that it was good value for money. Our apartment was clean but perhaps a little dated and slightly shabby. Cleaners came every day. The 2 single beds weren't the most comfortable. However there were all the basics that you needed and we cooked most evenings. The onsite bar was over-priced and... More

Gob-smacked at the positive reviews for this place! I am easily pleased & don't need much laid on entertainment but this place is a complete disaster! It's clean and the staff are polite but I would not be surprised if this is closed down very soon. Much of it was empty when we stayed in April and with good reason!... More

This is not a 4* accommodation. I stayed during Easter 2014. During this time, Our bed(two single beds pushed together) was made once but the sheets were never changed. We also had to continuously ask for clean towels at reception. This 'hotel' needs to be renovated & major changes are needed to meet the needs of the customer.

Most of the reviews before heading off to Estrela Do Vau were good so was expecting good things and wasn't disappointed. The hotel was built in the mid nineties, and looks a tiny bit dated but the room (studio) was clean and bright with a kitchen that had a microwave, four ring hob, a coffee machine, a kettle AND a...
