Another trip to VDL and excellent again. We rented a Villa and the safety and cleanliness of the resort was up to its normal standard. Being August it was a little busier than normal, particularly in the evening at the Praca. Aside from some ice-cream and cocktails at the Pancake place at the Praca we visited restaurants outside VDL except for the Ken Lo Chinese at the Tennis Centre. It is only a view but the restaurants at the front are overpriced for the quality you get and it’s easier to drive a few miles towards Almancil and get much better value for money.
Ken lo's Chinese is very good and we also went to Mr Freddie’s just outside Almancil which whilst it does not look much from outside was in a nice courtyard setting with fantastic food at very reasonable prices. We also visited Don Giovani (good simple Italian) and Pizza Pasta Fantasia, both good value and pleasant food and good for small children.
The beech is always good and clean and plenty of room if you just walk 100 yards beyond the steps.
Remember on the last day, if you need to kill time between leaving your Villa and catching a plane you can use the tennis centre pool and loungers FOC. Towel hire is #2 and there is showers etc.
All in all another very pleasant holiday at VDL.
