We spent a week at Vale Do Lobo. The staff is fantastic! Joao was amazing! They made us feel welcome and went over board to make our vacation special. Portugal has the friendliest people in the world! We can't wait to go back!

Apartment was great, golf courses fantastic, restaurants good value with plenty of choice, beach fantastic. The shuttle bus service just topped the whole thing off, on call all day and never waited more than 10 minutes for it. I would definitely go back.

Although a friendly reception, THE experience on THE golfcourse was very dissapointing. Very unfriendly caddymasters who gave our group an unwelcome feeling.this golfcourse is very expensive and one coulant expect a better treatment! We dont come back here.

Just back from a perfect week stay at Villa Penroze in Portugal. Highly recommend. So much space. 12 of us went and we didn't feel crowded at all. Pool was fantastic. Grandchildren had a brilliant time in the pool. Villa plus rep very helpful. Look forward to renting again with Villa Plus next year.

We stayed in a front line villa through owners direct and the location could not have been better. Our patio overlooked the main pool and beach with the praca a stroll away for bars and restaurants.

Vale do Lobo is one of the large residential and apartment resorts along the coast. We selected an apartment that turned out to be amazing- two master suites, three balconies/patios and a very private sun deck with our own hot tub. We could see a peak of the ocean and one the golf courses. Totally modern with air conditioning in... More

The weather was great, everything is well serviced and provided for. It lacks any authenticity or culture and if that's what you want then I wouldn't bother. It's a very easy place to holiday but I feel like you could be anywhere in the world. Prices are inflated for tourists.

Lovely resort but beware when parking. If you are not facing in the direction of traffic you will get a fine of 30-150 euros. You can pay at the booth next to crazy golf but you won't get a receipt. Alternatively you have to go to Loule to pay.
