A gorgeous piece of the world. Clean, safe & beautiful. I really can't wait to return. Fabulous beach with brilliant restaurants everywhere! Sea rough when we were there. Views of cliffs stunning. A fabulous family resort. A few hotels but mainly villas. A ready made resort for a carefree holiday. Locals are so friendly.

Vale do Lobo is built entirely from scratch so don't go expecting to experience anything real. It's a huge resort built for golf - a small town really - but one that lacks all the usual amenities and character of a real town, and the weirdest thing of all is the absence of real people, and by that I mean...

We stayed in an apartment booked via booking.com and I have to say it was outstanding (675b). The apartment was roomy, clean and had every amenity needed to ensure a first class stay. It had an external jacuzzi which we didn't use as too hot, but I'd imagine it would be great for cooler nights. Air con worked well and... More

Bad value for money ... bad housekeeping Service ... (cleaning toilets very poor, dirt stains from previous use in all the furniture, walls and equipment, ashtrays dirty from previous users, ventilation toilet did not work, repairs to lousy finishes no replacement amenities throughout our stay). Pool with sun loungers marked with towels all day though little used by users.

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom villas with a private pool. The service was impeccable, the daily cleaning services were welcome, the shuttle was efficient and there within 5 minutes every time we called. The villa itself contained everything necessary for self catering with large outside area. Will definitely return for another holiday here next year. Outstanding.
