Beautiful resort, clean, friendly staff, lovely restaurant and wonderful location. You are right on the beach next to Maria's (wonderful food and live music on a Sunday) and down the boardwalk are 4/5 lovely beach bars (personally recommend Julias and Izzys). A short taxi drive away from central Vale do Lobo with an array of restaurants, bars and kid's entertainment.... More

Wow, you just can't beat the location of this resort. The apartments are fitted with high end finishes, and the beach is amazing. The serve in the rooms is very good. Food and serve at on site restaurant is a bit disappointing. Overall a great place,

This resort is real nice. The villas and apartments are high end and comfortable. The service and room cleaning is excellent. The resort location is fabulous and can't be beat. Check in and service is also excellent. The on site restaurant is just ok and the service in the restaurant is poor. Overall I would recommend.

Having passed one night we decided to eat here. We didn't have a reservation but were offered a table inside. The waitress asked us to order drinks and sit in the bar area so the pressure in the kitchen was reduced; this was fine and understandable until we realised the restaurant wasn't actually that busy. We were sat at a... More
