Stayed here with friends, the villa was great and was 5 star (comparing it to the rating process we had to go through for the 5 star holiday cottage we run). All the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. We went b&b and would probably have been bored if all inclusive as it was nice to go...

Despite some of the negative reviews on here, my family and I really enjoyed our holiday at Vale De Lapa. The villas were beautiful, loads of space and in a lovely setting. I thought the electric shutters were a good idea as it can be a nuisance with sunlight coming through flimsy curtains on holiday. The pool area was lovely,...

My husband & I had 2 weeks at this hotel (returning July 24th 2014) & can't fault it. The rooms are fabulous, huge & kept spotless with maids daily (they even washed up).

Just spent a blissful week in Carvoiera. We stayed in Vale de Lapa & I would recommend it highly. The accommodation itself was a 2 bed townhouse-style apartment, big, bright & spotlessly clean. The resort grounds were gorgeous - really well landscaped & a meandering river ran through the whole site. While this was lovely to look at, the racket...

I stayed here with my boyfriend and absolutely everything was impeccable, clean, welcoming, modern. The food was amazing, the pools were clean and spacious. My only complaint was the location was a little ways from the beach but it was a nice walk :)
