We went to vale da lapa last August and when booking the holiday I wasn't sure what to expect as I couldn't really find all the details I'd have liked about the accommodation. The pictures show house type accommodation with stairs etc, I thought this might be the upgraded apartments but when we were arrive I was soooo impressed ,... More

I cannot believe some of the reviews from people who have obviously very dull lives complaining about ridiculous things! Give your heads a shake! This is a beautiful place, suites are huge and stunning. Staff are very informative and friendly, going the extra mile. We arrived late on our first day so dinner had finished, however we were greeted by... More

We originally wasn't supposed to stay here and was booked on their sister hotel 'Riverside' just down the road but upon arrival we was informed that their restaurant was out of service so our all inclusive agreement would have to be fulfilled at 'Vale de Lapa' at no extra cost even tho it was the better of the two hotels....

Stayed as a family of 4 in October. The accommodation is far superior from what you expect in Europe. They are individual villas, with 2 bed & 2 bath room. Finished to a very high standard. Indoor and outdoor pool - handy as a couple of days the weather wasnt great. I would recommend a car, as it is out... More

The resort is excellent. The 2 bed villa are very modern and allow for an dedicated self catering holiday. We travelled with 2 kids under 4 and they absolutely loved the place. Our eldest loved the kids club, midday aqua slash and the night time disco which was on at about 20.00. Only a few kids about the place in... More

Very confortable. The HOUSE is huge and very clean. Better than at home! The dinner in restaurant delivers high quality food, with many potuguese specialities. large balcony on the 12nd floor, and a terrace on the 1st floor.

All the staff are friendly helpful and efficient. Check in was hassle free and informative. Everyone here has time too speak with you and tell you about places... More

Each villa has their own pool in a small backyard and the resort itself has a bigger pool as well as a indoor heated pool. Each villa has wifi and tv. The resort Restaurant is conveniently located and priced reasonable though the menu is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vale De Lapa Resort. We have been to Carvoeiro many times but this was our first stay at this hotel. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member upon our arrival. We were a fair bit too early but she said would get the house ready for us within half an hour... More

we are just back from a week here. The house was beautiful, immaculately clean and probably the nicest accommodation I Have stayed in. The staff were very friendly. We expected it to be quiet at this time of year, and it was but this suited us fine. We had a two storey town house with living/dining room, downstairs toilet, fully... More
