I have been coming to VDL for 30 years. Sometimes twice or three times per year. I spent a long weekend here at the end of April knowing that the renovations were to be finished early March. How disappointed was I. They must have meant March 2018. Its chaos. We hired a villa overlooking the beach and Rotunda pool. What...

Perhaps my second home outside of UK. Love the place and have owned house here since 2006. Beaches great, restaurants in Vale Do Lobo and within short drive cater for all. A really family friendly "resort" where the locals are so very friendly... And Portuguese wine is super. Love it.

Vale de Lobo is highly manicured resort with many facilities. It's predominantly English and whilst there we saw many people we knew. It was great for my daughter as she could spend time with her friends who were also on holiday at the same time and there are great places to eat. However it doesn't really float my boat. My...
