The rooms were cleaned daily however the cleaners after arrived after 6pm far too late in the day. The pool area although attractive and there...

We recently returned from a two week family holiday in the Estrela do Vau apartments and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Our two bedroom apartment was on the ground floor with a pool view as we requested and we were very impressed by it. Great air-conditioning, very spacious, clean, great cleaning services and staff etc. The staff at the...

We booked a two bedroom apartment and were all pleasantly surprised at its size. Both bedrooms were very spacious and the living area was huge. It had two balconies, a large bathroom/toilet and a separate shower/toilet. All very clean. All nicely air conditioned. The only thing lacking in the kitchen was an oven, although there was a hob. TV channels...

Just back from a two week stay in July 2013 with husband and 14 and 10 year old boys. We had a lovely view in our apartment of both sea and pool. Room number 433- would recommend 4th floor as you have views of the sea. First thoughts were that the kitchen/dining area was brighter than others we have stayed...

Staff were very helpful and friendly. The staff at the kids club were great and I had no qualms leaving my 5 yr old with them for an hour or two. The...

This was our 2nd visit to Estrela do Vau. This time we visited in May, last time was September. I know the season had yet to start but do Vau and Praia da Rocha were very quiet. The hotel/apartment was great. No complaints at all, we had got a reasonably cheap deal so were more than happy with our one-bedroom...

Stayed here with my two children aged 8 and 13 last October for a week. Nice clean, if slightly run down apartments. But fab for the price we paid off season. Restaurant very disappointing but loads of lovely places to eat in Alvor and Praia da Rocha. Kids had us at Big Reds twice. All in all we were happy...

This hotel is need of some TLC! The outside areas by the pool and restaurant bar need a good sweeping. Snack bar and Restaurant are only open at certain times, and there doesn't seem to be enough staff to keep both of them open. The grey haired guy with the glasses is one miserable git, no service with a smile...

The apartments although not modern were spacious clean and well equipped, there is no oven in the kitchen although we didn't miss it as on the hot weather we ate mainly fresh food. The staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly as were all the staff in the hotel. The little restaurant on site provides basic but reasonable...
