Was back at the Jardim again in July, and the bottom line is, we are booked again for 2015. I reviewed this place last year, and once again, I would say all the same things. It is a little dated in decor, and this depends on the apartment you are in, but in reality, all are very clean, it probably... More

Where there were choices I was displeased with in the Algarve, this one I was not. Clean if a bit dated. Wonderful service. Very close to the beach. A great place for families with small children. I would not recommend it to couples or the business set. I found Portimao to be quaint, and Jardim do Vau lived up to... More

The ride from the airport to Portimão takes about forty-five minutes, including two stops to drop other people off. Since there are only eight people present in the bus, I can only conclude that around this time of the year this location is not very busy and overcrowded. The location of the hotel is alongside the road in between Alvor... More

We spent 10 nights at the Jardim Do Vau and enjoyed it all. The hotel itself is very nice, clean in all areas and didn't feel too busy even in mid-August. Our accommodation was a 1 bedroom apartment in block B with a sea view. The sea view was partially obscured by block A (the one right by the pool)... More

We spend one week here in August in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment is very well cleaned (daily) and well taken care of. We had a sea view apartment in block B, which was beautiful. The only thing we did not like in the apartment was the bed. It is very hard, which after a few night is not... More

Set right on the beach the Jardim do Vau is an excellent choice if you like sun sea and sand. The outdoor pool was adequate in size although sunbeds were at times a premium. The rooms were big and clean and we were fortunate to get the 4th floor rear block with a great sea and beach view and a... More

The two bedroom apartment which we stayed in was ample size for myself, wife and three older children. It was very well equipped and we had an excellent sea view. The rooms were cleaned daily and to a high standard. Breakfast was adequate with various selections of meats, fruit and bread. with some bacon and eggs also available if you... More

I just returned today with my wife and 1 year old after 8 nights here. We had a ground floor apartment in block A overlooking the pool which was perfect for us as our baby could wander out onto the lawn but was not too close to the pool as to be dangerous. Lovely facility, the grounds are kept immaculate.... More

The apartments themselves are perfectly adequate for self catering. The beach out in front of the apartments is probably one of the best in the Algarve. Outside of the apartments there is very little in terms amenities, restaurants etc. The pool area is fine but could do with a good cleaning. Wifi is only available in public areas which is... More
