Great time had by all at the VVP. Fantastic (if a bit expensive at 50 euros per morning) kids club. Great care taken with the kids, good facilities, activities and play areas. Seemed very safe. Good choice of restaurants albeit a couple don't allow young children in. Can understand that...to a point. Would like to have taken mine!! But wouldn't... More

An update to a previous review - we've just returned from our third visit to Vila Vita Parc, and once again cannot praise it highly enough for its lovely gardens, brilliant but low-key children's facilities and simply brilliant staff - how do they do it?! I am fairly well travelled and used to staying in good hotels (worked as crew... More

This hotel really is a beautiful place. The gardens are quite awesome, so well tended it is like living in Kew Gardens! The service is excellent, the rooms are great (see point below), beach is next to hotel and is almost private to the hotel (there are no private beaches in portugal, all beaches are public access), the food is...

We have just returned from a long weekend at Vila Vita and we have to say we loved it! The grounds are amazing - so extensive, so well manicured - in fact seriously manicured - we didn't see any thing out of place, even the paths look like they have been scrubbed clean. It takes a while to walk around... More

We spent 2 weeks here as a family last July (children 18 and 15), and I think that the only thing out of the ordinary is the expense! Having travelled extensively I am not used to feeling that I am being taken for a ride, but certainly did here... I would fully agree that the hotel grounds are spectacular: apart... More

The hotel was fabulous. I had written and asked for a peaceful room in advance and we were given a lovely garden view room in La Residencia. From arrival - free parking for hire car to superb meals. We ate in two of the many restaurants - the italian and the one in the main building (whose name I forget)... More
