We stayed in the Jasmin apartment within the Villa Branca complex and can not recommend this enough! The apartment was beautifully presented, spacious and well equipped. Upstairs comprises of two separate bedrooms, each with its own en suite and a shared balcony. Downstairs has a separate living space, downstairs toilet and a separate kitchen. Downstairs leads out onto a large terrace which overlooks the pool. The apartment is really nice and I would definitely go back there again.

Given what I paid for this I felt it was great value for money. The room(s) I stayed in were huge. I'm not used to having a separate living room on holiday! All of it was spotless, although slightly tired in some places. Daily floor cleaning and bed making. The kitchen was well equipped, with a cooker, kettle, microwave and toaster. All the staff I encountered were very friendly. Good location, reasonably quiet, but walkable to the places I wanted to visit and there was a well stocked supermarket opposite the location. The only negative when I was (w/c 14th October) that the pool by the bit I was in seemed to be in the process of closing up for winter. I was told on arrival that the pool bar was already closed, and gradually during the week most of the sunbeds were put away. This didn't affect my holiday, but if I had been staying for longer than 5 nights I would have disappointed with this, and would have liked to have been aware of this before making my booking. So its worth checking before booking what facilities are available if you are booking on the edge of season and this sort of thing is important to you.

As you saw, we have 2 swimming pools, that were available with enough sunbeds for the guests in Vilabranca and we had the bar and the restaurant near the reception opened all day. Looking forward to welcome you again in the future, With the best regards, Neusa Rocha

Having spent last week at the Vilabranca in Lagos with my family I was very happy with our stay there. The complex has too fine pools and also a paddling pool for little children. Our room was a good size with a balcony where one could eat breakfast or lunch although it could have done with a little paint job. Towels were changed daily and the rooms cleaned. The staff at reception were always on hand to help out and very friendly. There was also a snack bar near the pool that served drinks and food daily. I must mention Paula who was an excellent host and looked after us during our stay. The Vilabranca is especially suited for families as the grounds are spacious and well back from the roadway. Some of the rooms could do with a makeover but other than that we really enjoyed our week there. We will certainly return.

I have visited Villa Branca on numerous occasions and unfortunately standards continue to slip. The location is excellent and a great place to holiday as a family with young children, but when paying a premium price you would expect basic pool cleaning and maintenance of surrounding areas to be conducted on a regular basis. During our stay sunbeds and tables were not cleaned, just a cursory sweep and bins emptied. In addition the standard of pool maintenance is diabolical, the filtration system is inoperable and has been for numerous weeks,(friends stayed two weeks prior to us), resulting in low water levels and in turn cloudy water, debris floating in the pool and on the pool floor. Sun canopies and umbrellas are dirty and in a poor state of repair, and have been for some time as we have witnessed their decline over the years. These issues are clearly a managerial problem and need to be addressed at said level. When paying a premium price you would expect some investment in the infrastructure. To finish on a high the apartments are clean and of a good standard and we continue to enjoy our holidays at Villa Branca.

Good afternoon, Thank you very much for your review. It is very important for us to have feedback from our guests to look for improvements in Vilabranca. The water of the pool is always subjet to an outsider company for tests and the results were good. The problem were because in August we were always fullybooked and it happened during a few days, due to the high utilization of the pool and with people with sun protectors , which spoils the water. We hope to welcome you again in our complex. It is a pleasure for us to have many clients coming back, as you. With best regards, Neusa Rocha
