We'd not had a great experience with one of the Diamond Resorts locations in the UK, so hadn't set our expectations too high. We were delighted when we arrived at Vilar Do Golf, villas are spacious, well equipped and very clean. We have young children and so the convenience of the on-site store was great.
Restaurant lovely, as is the pool bar/cafe which is very good value as I must admit we expected a bit of 'captive audience' price hiking, but not the case at all.
What really makes the difference is the customer service &
friendliness. Across the board friendly people but in particular a grey haired chap who works in the restaurants (wish I'd remembered his name) who was great.
All in all location great but it was the people & their attitude that stood out for us. Will definitely be looking to visit again.
