Just back from another great stay at Agua Vale da Lapa. So comfortable and the villas are of a high standard, everything you could need is provided. The cleaning staff deserve a pat on the back too as after they've been the villa looks new again. Breakfast is good too. A fair walk to town but all on the flat...

Altough it was on winter time and the weather didn't help, the resort made all the difference. With a very good suite and all included, the indoor pool was great such as jacuzzi and the other services. I do not have anything to say against this resort.

We booked a fairly last minute week away at the Vale da Lapa and we loved it. The 'rooms' are fantastic and cater for your every need. We were a family of 3 including a 9 month old and her needs were very well taken care of. The self catering facilities within our room were great and enabled us to...

Excellent resort. 4 star rather than 5. Some beautiful beaches 10 min away. Great townhouse a, spacious, daily maid service, fully equipped kitchens. Food was good though restricted for a vegetarian. However, they happily cooked off menu. We went half board which I would recommend. Great pools, spa was always deserted though. My main complaint is regarding the charge for...

Had a wonderful holiday at this relaxed and chilled out resort. The deluxe suite we stayed in was clean, spacious, with an excellently equipped kitchen and furnished to the highest standard. The maids provided an excellent daily service. We were self catering and only ate at the hotel once for lunch but it was one of my favourite meals. We...

If you're looking for a very good 4 star treatment, excellent service, great menu and off menu if you want anytime, high spec villas, quiet poolside inc covered pool with steam/sauna rooms (in October), but you are €30 away from albufeira type towns then this is definitely for you. We are veggies and picky, but with their buffet or a...
