These are super apartments for families. The 2-bed has everything you need: (washing machine, dishwasher, air-con, safe, daily maid service). We were on the top floor with a lovely sea view from the balcony. The pool was excellent with ample loungers. No pool games or inflatables in the main pool which means you can enjoy it - 2 very small... More

This hotel ticks all the boxes if you are after a family self catering break close to beautiful beaches. We didn't eat here but the waiters at the bar were super friendly and helpful and mix up a good cocktail. Indoor pool is very quiet and good to escape the busier outdoor pools. Children's pool isn't very deep or large... More

Spent 10 days here. Booked a sea view 2 bedroomed apartment, and although the apartment was fabulous (2 bathrooms, full kitchen, huge balcony, modern decor and air con in every room), the sea view was extremely minimal. However we did not let this deter us. We were on the 2nd floor on B Block. Did not have to grapple for... More

It had been almost 15 years since I first visited Jardim do vau. Back then I was equipped with a gameboy colour, the latest Pokemon game and the utmost desire to spend all my time in the nearby slip and slide aqua park near portimao. However I've always held fond memories for this resort, especially the people who man it,... More

We visited Jardim Do Vau for 10 days in May 2016. We were delighted at the reception we received on arriving late at night. The front desk is manned 24-7 by staff who are invariably polite, helpful and very pleasant. The location is great for people happy to enjoy sun bathing, with excellently equipped sun terraces facing the outdoor pool.... More

This was our first visit to Portugal. Through friends who have stayed at Jardim do Vau, we decided to stay there. The hotel was well maintained, clean and located right on the ocean. If you want luxury, this is not your place. If you want comfort, convenient location at a great price, this is it. The rooms are bright, clean... More
