As diamond members, we are familiar with many of the resorts, this being one of our favourites as its so relaxing and in beautiful surroundings. We love the huge pool, and yes, it is cold when you first get in, but that soon passes, and then its lovely and refreshing! Staff are brilliant and nothing is too much trouble. We...

We visited this place in May and were delighted with our stay. The resort is beautifully designed to give the feeling of seclusion and tranquility. Well equipped apartments are spaced well throughout the complex to allow privacy and prevent disturbance from other guests. Outdoor swimming facilities were fantastic, the pool is huge and the entire resort is spotlessly clean. Resort...

My husband and I stayed here for a week at the end of March, a great time to visit. Our villa was very comfortable. We had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Unfortunately both bathrooms were upstairs, but other than that and a slightly uncomfortable living room sofa, we were very happy there. I would like to thank the concierge staff...

Stayed here for a week with family, and it's a very peaceful place - It's lovely to wake to the local birdsong. All the grounds are well manicured and looked after. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. The hotel were happy to arrange airport transfers, and they run a series of shuttle trips using their own...

Just got back from a wonderful week at Vilar do Golf. Our apartment (7) was spacious, well equipped and clean. The staff on site were first class. As Diamond Resort members, we didn't have to pay for WI-Fi, but would agree that others shouldn't have to pay for that either. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The entertainment staff...

My friend and I visited for an over night visit as we got a very sweet booking deal.
