The 5 day stay here was fine. Nothing special. The room was clean when I first got there. Was shocked to learn (after some nosing around) there was ample space for a restaurant downstairs but it is closed up and looks like like hasn't been used for a while. It would have been nice to not have to use the... More

Me and mum stayed here in September 2013 and we had a great time. The apartment was clean, tidy and roomy and for the price excellent value. we went self catering and found the kitchen equipment adequate. Only a short walk to the beach and regular buses to nearby villages. We will certainly return .

We stayed for a week in October, out of season and it proved to be a great time to go if like us, you were just after a peaceful break to recharge the batteries. There were very few people around and we had both pools to ourselves for most of the time - both of which were perfectly clean and... More

Our stay at Vau Hotel was very very "average". Our first initial impression when we stepped into the hotel to check in wasn't the greatest one. We arrived at 12 noon and were anxious to get our stuff into the hotel room, change and go out exploring. Much to our surprise, we were told our room was not ready yet... More

We stayed for a few days in June 2009. The room is very tired and outdated. Could do with a refurb, the furnishings and general state were tatty. Good location We mainly went to Praia do Rocha in the evenings for meals, loads of great restaurants, bars and shops. There is a wonderful Italian restaurant!!!

The apartment was very clean, towels were changed very often. We had a lovely view from the lounge & bedroom, as the balcony went right across. There was enough kitchen equipment for what we wanted.
