This was our 2nd annual golfing trip from Hillside to Portugal, after a good trip in 2013 to Vilamoura we decided to stay at Vale De Lobo for our May 2014 holiday which we booked via Golfbreaks.
This proved to be a good decision as it was far better and the management & staff at Vale De Lobo were fantastic. From the moment we checked in, we were very impressed with the resort. The quality of the apartments was fantastic, we were upgraded from standard to deluxe apartments and as a group of 9 this was very well received by the guys!
Every member of the Vale De Lobo team we met were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them, even accommodating our late tee time on Sunday by allowing us to check out late and use the great facilities in the well equipped apartments prior to returning home. Great modern rooms with high specification bathrooms and powerful showers.
The internal circuit bus works far better than we expected, just a quick call to reception and in 10 minutes they collect you and the drivers were all very friendly and helpful. Great breakfasts at Spikes bar and the whole process was managed well, leaving us to concentrate on enjoying our golf and not worrying about anything.
As for the golf, both the Royal and Ocean courses were in fantastic condition, and we had no issues with slow play or unhelpful marshalls like some of the other reviews on here, so would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Vale De Lobo as a great place to say as well as play golf.
