We had a very bad experience with this hotel. Our reservation was confirmed, by arrival there was no room available. We did't get a choice, the only option was to stay at an other hotel. We booked this hotel specificly, for a travel - business purpusise. Our money back was not an option! Terrible service, with an Owner who did... More

After having staid in Vila Valverde three years ago, we returned in August and found back the same relaxing nice place as it was before…The former country house has been refurbished into a fancy cosy design residence were every detail counts. Luxury rooms, spacious public areas with appropriate soft music, an immense garden and an outdoor swimming pool we often... More

This hotel is absolutely breathtaking and by far the most spectacular place I've ever stayed. For my wedding day I wanted to get ready (and to come back to!) somewhere special, and Vila valverde did not disappoint. The pictures in the hotel and grounds were beautiful.

We were looking for a boutique hotel away from the crowds and Vila Valverde certainly fitted the bill. Our room was very spacious, with great facilities, including a large balcony. Dinner is available, upon request, though with so many good restaurants in Lagos and Praia Da Luz, I would recommend dining out. The service was very friendly, but don't expect... More

Frankly I would have been happy to stay... More

This hotel really did live up to the expectations we had having read the other reviews on here. It was a fantastic boutique hotel just outside of Lagos and Luz. Margit and Luis go the extra mile to make sure you have a great stay by offering personal recommendations for places to eat and beaches to go to. This knowledge... More

I have always used trip advisor to check in advance the places I visit but never got motivated to make any review until my last vacation in Algarve. I stayed in Praia da Luz in the end of september, the weather was magnificent and part of the summer crowd was already gone. At the vila valverde hotel we had a... More

I went here as a guest of my friends who were getting married. To reach the hotel it is necessary to walk up a steep hill with no assistance with bags. I noticed what looked like a golf buggie in a shed near the car park and I think there should be a service to help people with their luggage.... More

We booked five nights for ourselves and treated five guests to a short stay in this luxurious hotel. Upon arrival, we immediately faced the first problem: nobody was there to help us with the luggage. We dragged the heavy luggage up the steep path and stairs. The lady at the reception showed us around. Again, we had to handle the... More
