The focal point is the pool that has had a recent makeover but the surrounds missed out. The foot pools where either empty at the base of the stairs or if you ventured down the slope to re-enter the pool area, you encountered a dirty brown stained hurdle of a puddle... it was cleaned out on a couple of occasions...

We chose Vale da Lapa as the Villa accomodation met some specific requirements we had for our family such as child friendliness and wheelchair access. On arrival we were very impressed with the standard and layout of our villa. We had some electrical and wifi issues during our stay but these were promptly seen to by the resort. The housekeeping...

What a wonderful place we had a relaxing time with good food, and lots of relaxation we rented a car for 1 day but it wasn't essential the staff in the vale de lapa were very attentive. The local town you could walk too but a taxi was not expensive.

Stayed here at the end of August 2016 for a 10 night family break. we were given a beautiful villa at the bottom of the resort - nice and quiet, just under 10 mins walk form the club house. Villa pool had been left very dirty by previous guests and was out of action for 2 days whilst they re-set...

This is our second visit within 6 months so we obviously enjoyed it previously, however...The maintenance of the three town houses we were offered was very poor. Without cataloguing numerous problems I will just say that the two houses we were first offered were in poor states, one had a black viscose material leaking from the hot water tank and...

This was our first trip to Portugal and I selected this resort due to the great reviews and competitive price even though some negative reviews have crept in recently. I had already emailed the resort prior to travelling to obtain a selected suite that was South facing (29 or 31 which we got 31 as promised). On arrival Alexandra was...

We arrived to the complex ahead of the 3pm check in but our villa was ready for us and we receive the keys. We made our way to the villa ourselves with our luggage and did not get shown around the complex. Found the reception staff a little unfriendly on first impressions but in hindsight I would say that perhaps...

We stayed here for two weeks, breakfast included during September 2016, this was our first visit here but we had stayed in similar accommodation (Rocha Brava & Vitors Village) before.

We have been coming here for 4 years, sometimes more than once per year so this is our 6th time. We do love the place but I have to agree with some of the other comments that things are not quite to the standard they used to be. Firstly I would like to say the I can never fault the...
