Myself and my family (11 in total) visited this wonderful resort for a week in August 2014. We were struck by the beauty and absolute luxury of this place from the minute we arrived. The staff are unbelievably helpful and full of great advice on places to visit. We hired a minibus for the first couple of days (organised by... More

We have been staying here for 6 years, every year is excellent - It's like coming home. The resort is lovely, clean and relaxing; surrounded by the Quinta do lago course, superbly well maintained gardens, great facilities. Our villa was located near the pool, a short walk to the amazing pool area, 2 big outdoor pools and a indoor pool.The... More

The two bed, two storey Villas are all very well appointed with air conditioning, two bathrooms and fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers and washing machines etc. They all have a pleasant patio area with furniture. There is a small shop, a coffee bar, an indoor restaurant, an outdoor bar serving food, and a lovely pool on site. The grounds are... More

The apartment was all we could want, the staff were very helpful, the only thing I found disappointing was the lack of places to walk to. I felt a bit too isolated, definitely need a car and also a good map and someone who knows the area to point you in the right direction.

The villas are good but value for money is poor. For a 4 star resort you shouldn't have to pay Euro 1.20 per towel if you want to change your dirty one for a clean towels. That is ridiculous! !! Always disappointing is that you have to pay seperately for a Internet connection. 6 euro per day. I rather pay... More

We are extremely sorry that you had cause for complaint about certain aspects of your stay at Vilar Do Golf. At present, the resort’s committee has decided not to incorporate the cost of wi-fi and renting pool towels into our pricing plan, as this would charge guests for these services regardless of whether or not they chose to use them....

I hope we were unlucky with our apartment, because this was like going back to the eighties. We were told that we had one of the "old/ not renovated" units. We had booked a unit for 2 adults and 2 children, however the reception told us that our apartment was only meant for 2 adults and one child. Maybe an... More

First point I would make is you do need to hire a car, especially if traveling with children. The beach is a good 20/30 minute walk away as are the shops & other restaurants. The resort it's self is very well set out and although there are lots of villa/apartments on the grounds you do not feel closed in. The... More

I felt Vilar do golf was a disappointment. The complex was Ok but the apartment we were in was very old fashioned and tiny with awful furniture and a very hard mattress The approach and stairs up to it hadn't been brushed for many a week I would guess, and it seemed to be in a total time warp.
