We stayed in Encosta do Lago in May, and, as our 7 year old loved the pool so much, and the proximity to The Shack, we returned in July/August. In May, the resort was very quiet, despite being half term. The pool rarely saw more than a dozen people around it, and the pool bar was closed, although the pool... More

My family came back to Quinta do Lago and this time stayed in Encosta do Lago via a private villa hire from Owners Direct. Having stayed in both Quinta and Val do Lobo before we knew the area but not this resort. It works well for young families. What we can say is that it is lovely, well kept, but... More

Stayed in September and then again in October for a week! We will definitely visit again. Spacious, clean, modern apartments. Helpful friendly staff. There ARE restaurants within walking distance - Tucano's on site and Casa do Lago 10 minutes stroll away on the lake - a beautiful spot to see the sunset. You can walk to other beach restaurants for... More

Encosta Do Lago is a smart purpose built holiday estate comprising apartments and houses, some up to three stories. Villa 87, where we stayed last week, is a three bedroom, two storey villa, reached via about a dozen steps, then a path and a few more steps, where we had the ground floor and the upstairs was a separate apartment....

We stayed here early July and were very pleased with the accommodation, facilities and location (although you do need a car). We booked a 2 bed but were given a 3 bed top floor which was fully equiped with everything we needed and more. The complimentary coffee, water, fruit and jams were very welcome and unexpected as was the fresh... More

Stayed in a ground floor, 2 bedroom apartment with a garden and private pool. The apartments were modern, clean and spacious, and the kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable and there were loads of clean towels, including pool towels. Maid service seemed to be every weekday. The resort itself was in a very select area of Quinta do... More
