This place has so much potential but a few things let it down. The room we stayed in exceeded expectations. Essentially is was a semi-detached villa with lovely large kitchen, dining and sitting area that was really spacious. The gardens are well maintained and you feel like you are staying in a small village. Most of the reception staff were... More

We arrived at the hotel to find that our tour operator had gone into adminstration while we were in transit. Although the hotel still had our reservations we were asked to pay for the accommodation again but at a considerably higher rate than we had originally paid via the tour operator. After some lengthy negotiation we were able to get... More

We had a three bedroom villa with its own pool. The villa was spacious with three good bedrooms living room, kitchen and utility room. The only faults I would have is that the kitchen is under equipped especially since it could sleep six and it could do with some more shade in the garden or on the roof terrace but... More

This place was almost very good. Contrary to some other experiences the reception staff were outstanding. The apartment itself excellent and exceptionally clean. It was just the pool area that let the whole place down. The sun beds were phenomenally bad. But we could have put up with that had the guy in the ice cream booth just turned the... More

We stayed at 'Vale da Lapa' resort for just one week, and we wished that we could have stayed longer! The villa was just perfect and was always beautifully clean. We went all inclusive, and were amazed at just how much was included - we would highly reccomend it! One of the highlights, however, has to be how friendly the... More

We booked a 4 night stay at this hotel following the positive reviews on this site. Although we were expecting a decent standard of accommodation, we were completely blown away by the fantastic 5 star quality of the villa. It was more than we had hoped for and consequently enjoyed a fabulous stay in very comfortable surroundings. The staff at... More

This is the second time we've been as a group of 4 friends and we wouldn't hesitate in returning. Beautiful, spacious clean villas, quiet pool area with loads of sunbeds (none of this saving with towels nonsense), pretty bar/dining area, lovely food and faultless service. If you want entertainment or something a bit more lively then head into the nearest... More
