We took a villa here in July 2012 and it was lovely.It was clean,the staff were friendly and helpful and the villa was well equipped with a dishwasher,washing machine and microwave.The lounge and bedrooms had air conditioning with remote controls which was so good in 30degree heat. We stayed a week and loved it however our plan was not to hire a car but it was really necessary to do so as the mini market on the complex was closed down so to get milk/bread essentials meant a trip in a taxi if the tiny shop ten minutes walk away didn't have what you needed.It took us 40minutes from Faro airport.The nearest beach was 10/15 minutes in a taxi as was Carvoeiro and reception had to ring for a taxi for you which usually meant a 15/20 minute wait for one to come up from the town.Taxi prices were reasonable between €6-€9 to go to the beach/Carvoeiro,price depended on time of day and day of week.But I would strongly recommend hiring a car as its quite an isolated spot otherwise.Theres a good selection of restaurants in Carvoeiro and Ferraguda the other side but check Tripadvisor on these too as some are much better than others. The complex felt really safe and secure but geared towards a younger age group,families with children would adore it.We have older teenagers and they loved chilling out but felt a bit removed from the action and any nightclubs etc.
It'd be ideal for families or friends to holiday together,hiring villas beside each other. To note,there's wifi available in the reception area but not in the villas.

Room Tip: We had a two bedroomed villa (56)and it was near pool and tennis courts.

We stayed here in April and had the best holiday we have had in 30+ years.The villa was faultless and the setting perfect.We enjoyed several beautiful walks and a short trip in the courtesy bus to Carvoeiro.Portimao is worth a visit,we went reasonably in a taxi.Regarding the villa,this was well equipped including a washing machine.The staff were very friendly especially reception.We can,t wait to return next April.

We returned from Colina De Lapa last week having spent the first 11 days of July there and thought we would add to other reviews for this complex and resort. First impressions are always lasting impressions and this did not disappoint, the complex is well set out and the villa/apartments are all set in lovely grounds. The 2 bedroom villas are very spacious with a full size kitchen and all the utensils and equipment you could possibly need including a washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. We liked it because you weren’t too close to your next door neighbour and had plenty of different places to sit outside. There is also air conditioning in 3 rooms which was needed as it was very hot while we were there. Although some people think a car is needed to get about we did not hire a car. We arranged transfers from the airport through Monarch and was dropped off at our accommodation. A courtesy mini bus is provided to either Caneiros beach or Carvoeiro 7 days a week and is pre-booked through reception the day before, we found this really excellent. As the main resort of Carvoeiro is a long walk away we took a taxi in and back for approximately 7 euros each way in an evening. There is a supermarket about 15 minutes flat walk away which has most things required, and next door is a pizza café. Another 5 minutes further there is an Italian Restaurant (Donatas) where the food is excellent. We also booked 2 trips through reception Loule Market which we would recommend and Zoo Marine which we are still talking about now. All in all we would certainly recommend Colina De Lapa and Carvoeiro and are thinking of returning next year.

Just returned from Colina da Lapa,unfortunately, to the miserable Scottish weather.Well what can I say regarding this complex. After much searching online for reviews prior to holiday booking. We didn`t know what to expect. Yes, complex is out of the way ,about 45 minute walk either way to carvoeiro and ferragudo, but complex runs free mini bus twice a day and public transport avialable in Carvoeiro to various main resorts. taxis usually 6 euros back to complex Complex was very quiet, site and accomodation top notch, especially 2 bedroom apartments(semi-villas). Staff there first class and bent over backwards to help. If you want an excellent quiet retreat, then great choice, although car hire would be recommended only if you want to go further afield. well done.Used tennis courts every day with my 15 year old son.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments are semi villas with two balconys and 3 verandahs
