Jardim do Vau is situated on the world famous beach but has its own grounds, complete with a kids' play area, three outdoor pools and one indoor. Our good sized apartment was in building A facing the ocean. We had a one bedroom place with kitchen and all essentials, eating area, living room , full bathroom and patio. Maid service... More

This is a really lovely complex right on a lovely sandy beach just a short walk from lots of really nice restaurants only downside is that the bus journey from the airport was far too long and there was no food available as it was late at night but the bar staff organised a toasted sandwich which was really nice...

The apartment was bright , clean and had an amazing view of the beach. The beds were comfortable and the patio spacious. The staff were most friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend Jardim du Vau, the location is fabulous.

We have stayed at this hotel for 6 years now and absolutely love it. You just can't beat the location, right on the beach with amazing sea views. The apartments are large, bright and airy and spotlessly clean. All the staff are friendly and couldn't do more to help. The facilities are great with onsite shop, restaurant, pool bar, gym,... More

Have stayed here a few times and will be going back this May. It is not the most modern of apartments for technology, however when I am on holiday, I am not there to watch television or use Wifi, that is what I am getting away from! The rooms are tastefully decorated and everywhere is always spotless and the service... More

I can not praise this hotel too highly. We were there when most of Portugal was closed (for the winter) The balconies (complete with covered sunbeds, table and chairs) faced south and so caught the sun most of the day. The rooms were large and airy. Effective heating (and aircon) The linen was changed whenever it was necessary (not just... More

A stunning location within yards of the beach and beach bars at Praia Do Vau. The apartment overlooked the sea and had sun almost all day. The rooms were spacious and clean and there were adequate cooking facilities if required. The staff were friendly and always helpful The beds however could do with being replaced as with the TV. The... More

We stayed from 7 Oct - 24 Oct 13. We expected a 4 star hotel as advertised. It is nothing like as comfortable as we expected. It was built in the 70s and has not been refurbished since. Very shabby. Mostly timeshare apartments, not hotel rooms. Uncomfortable beds, thin towels, useless hairdryer, elderly tv, many cracked floor tiles. No WIFI... More

Set above a nice beach, this apartment complex is next to the main road and close to plenty of restaurants and shops. You can go for nice long walks or take a taxi for trips to Alvor. The apartments are clean and comfortable and the staff are helpful. The pools are nice for when the beach gets a bit too... More
