Well from start to finish this resort never failed to impress.Were greeted by a lovely receptionist Sonya so polite and accommodating checked us in early by 3 hrs. The villa was perfect and even got a birthday surprise of fruit for hubby. Resort bus was ideal for coming and going. Villa was cleaned each day and staff so polite. Overall this was well worth the visit and on last day were gifted with Easter Egg . The personal touches were so nice. Worth every penny.

We find ourselves returning to this wonderful resort, now renting for the 4th occasion at different times of the calendar. It’s always fantastic, naturally much quieter through winter months but still plenty to do ion the warm days. Our favourite area in the resort is the Vale Do Golf in stunning contemporary accommodation and close to the golf club which is great to eat and drink. The perfect retreat for family, friends or golfers and quite unique in Europe.

I love Vale Do Lobo and have been many times. We always stay right in the resort behind The Praca. It’s clean and safe. The restaurants are all excellent, if a little pricey compared to the rest of Portugal.
My only problem this year were the beach staff. 4 of them! Not sure what they did other than chat loudly all day! They refused to take my money for 6 sunbeds - apparently there was someone else for that. My problem is that I suffer from skin cancer and have had a melanoma removed. Whilst we paid for 6 beds and 3 umbrellas I still worry. (So yes we’d paid a small fortune to lie there) Yes I’m covered in factor 50 but I like to be under cover too. I took a small umbrella which I bought for emergencies and put it low over my left leg (where the Melanoma was situated). I put it up. Staff appeared from everywhere screaming at me to put it down! I kid you not! Apparently I broke a rule by using a small umbrella of my own to protect myself from a recurrence of skin cancer! At least it stopped the lady staff member talking for 5 minutes while she screamed at me! This year I’ll take some ear plugs instead of an umbrella!

What a fabulous week. From the moment we landed our seamless transfer arranged by VdL took us to our apartments. 8 ladies with our apartments next door to each other.
The golf was really well organized with competitions every day. About 160 competitors and aach day we had complementary fruit, tea, coffee on the 1st tee. The resort bus worked a treat taking us back and to. Clubhouse food is delicious. Such a well organized week. We will be looking forward to returning next year

Played the Royal Course it was very nice and a good standard for holiday golf. Staff very good and the whole facility is excellent. However the golf in the algarve has become far too expensive for the standard of courses.
