We are just back from our 2nd visit to Vale Da Lapa, and this time decided to upgrade ourselves from town house to villa. The villa was ready early (1:30pm) which was a bonus. Initial impression was very positive - nice open plan layout (although master suite was like a mezzanine with no closing doors which is fine as there...

The accomodation appeared on the surface to be excellent. However, by the morning we could see that it was just that, surface cleanliness and comfort. The mattress was just awful....so hard...no give whatsoever. We had many a sleepless night, and on a couple of occasions we actually slept on the sofas! The pillows are worth mentioning too. They are filled...

We always stay in 5 star hotels and reading the reviews for this thought we had chosen well. 1.The villa was clean spacious and well thought out for a family. You have everything you need and the extra security of role down blinds to the outside of the building. The...

The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, freezer, cooker and 4 ring hob, toaster, kettle, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine etc. There are large patio doors opening on to a private patio with table and chairs.

Rooms are massive, kitchens well appointed. Maintenance is starting to slip - we had one of the showers in the suite out of service for the whole 9 days. Services are not five star quality. Entertainment is outsourced and whilst a lovely young lady tries her best there is zero variety. Kids club is a small windowless room in the...

Could not fault this hotel or the staff in anyway. Beautiful villa. Lots of room, even considering there were 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 children. Really peaceful all day and particularly at night. Staff were all very helpful, kind and considerate. Would return again in the future.

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...
