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

Very much enjoyed our stay here , apartments were spotless and spacious which is always a bonus. No shoebox apartments here. We paid extra for the seaview & were glad we did. Beds very clean but a bit on the hard side ( isn't it just as easy to buy comfy beds as hard ones!!) Just a minor detail overall.... More

The hotel has a short path leading down to a superb beach. It is about a mile from the busy Praia da Rocha beach and amenities, but there are limited cafes, bars and restaurants in the immediate area. We stayed in A block , which overlooks the gardens, pools and beach, and has the additional advantage of being furthest away... More

We stayed in a two bed apt which was very spacious for 3 adults and two children. The sofa bed wasn't very comfortable though. This is a good 3 star hotel but I don't think it deserves 4 stars. The bar/ restaurant is dingy and depressing and the pool bar closes at 6pm. In June? The onsite mini market is... More

Location is great, just a few meters from the beach. If you want just pay the extra and have the sea view, its worth it. Pool is big and good, amenities are good, nothing fancy but really don't need to be. Parking is private so that is a good extra, specially on summer time. Apartment is not very big, but... More
