Carvoeiro

Located between the two fishing villages of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo, this exclusive modern apart hotel in contemporary style is surrounded by a large delightful landscaped garden with ponds and creeks – just the perfect place to relax under the warm sun. Two of the most beautiful beaches the spectacular coastline of the Algarve has to offer, Caneiros and Carveiro, are within easy reach. Faro International Airport can be reached in less than 40 minutes by car.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

A great resort

Review by heidio982 Essex, United Kingdom

We are just returning from a week on a self catering basis at Vale De Lapa Village resort. I had read a few bad reviews before hand. Not sure why this is as When we arrived late evening we was greeted by Louisa, she was informative about the complex, very welcoming they arranged for food to be cooked even though the restaurant was closing and was a great start to the week ahead, the apartments are very well equipped and very spacious, with large bedrooms both with bathrooms, downstairs w.c, large balcony the grounds are immaculate, the facilities are very very good for a self catering holiday...

Nothing we asked for was a problem, all of the staff had been amazing including the resort manager. I would not hesitate to recommend for a quiet enjoyable holiday. Thank you from the Obeng’s

Great place to stay

Just back from 10 days at this wonderful hotel. We had a great time. We stayed in a 2 bedroom house which was perfect for our needs...

We went bed and breakfast and couldn't fault it. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Our 2 girls had a great time in the pools and the massages in the spa were amazing. Would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic Accommodation

Review by PJP78 Bristol, United Kingdom

We stayed in a 3 bedroomed detached villa, with private pool and it was certainly 5 star!

The villa was spacious, well appointed and very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, and all high quality appliances (Bosch dishwasher, American fridge freezer, Dulce Gusto coffee machine - with pods that were replaced each day). Dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid were also provided.

The beds were huge and all bedrooms were en-suite...

The master bedroom had a full size bath and a separate shower.

Towels were provided for both showers and the pool, and changed daily if needed by the cleaning staff, who were all really friendly and helpful. Dressing gowns were also provided.

We had read a few negative reviews on trip advisor and people had mentioned things such as ‘worn sofas’, and yes, the sofa was not brand new - but it was more than adequate - we couldn’t fault the accommodation, and having stayed here for 8 nights can honestly say that any negative reviews are not justified!!

Our daughters enjoyed playing in the pool at the Villa (even though it was not heated!) and we also used the indoor heated pool and hot tub, sauna and steam room (free to use, but had to be booked in advance, due to Covid restrictions). Swim hats must be worn in the indoor pool.

We also enjoyed playing ‘padel’ and basketball (free to borrow the equipment).

Breakfast was great - a large selection of bread, pastries, cakes, fruit and juices as well as eggs and bacon.

Perhaps the best thing about the resort is the staff - they were all so friendly and welcoming - especially the staff on reception and in the restaurant.

The only slight downside to the resort is the location - you do need a car. We found a great local restaurant called Casa do Pasto, which was excellent value and lovely food. This was a 15 minute walk away, but due to the lack of pavements, it was better to drive. Auchan supermarket was a 5 minute drive away. We also went to Ferragudo beach was a 10 minute drive away, which was a lovely flat beach.

We really had a fantastic time at Vale de Lapa and would definitely rate it a 5 star resort!

Benefits of a hotel, privacy of a villa!

Review by AmyHannah Manchester, United Kingdom

We stayed here for 4 nights after deciding to extend our stay in Portugal and having a bad experience with another private rental villa (and therefore, quickly needing to find an alternative). We booked on the Sunday afternoon and arrived an hour or 2 later - we booked a 3 bedroom villa with private pool.

Pros:

  • reception team are fantastic. You can also WhatsApp them at any time for help (so you don't have to walk up to the main reception).
  • the resort is clean and well kept.
  • the villa was modern, clean and spacious.
  • private pools in the villas
  • good location - close to Carvoeiro and within walking distance of some fantastic local restaurants (Hexagon, Oregano etc.)
  • communal pool area looked well kept, although this wasn't a facility we used...
  • villa had most things you would need in: kitchen utensils, plates etc, coffee machine, washing machine, fridge/freezer, towels, pool towels, Toiletries etc. (Note: there is no bottled water provided, so make sure to get some on your way to the villa)

Feedback:

  • the sun loungers are directly on the grass which isn't ideal. This means you get grassy/muddy feet when coming out of the pool and walking back to your lounger. It also means more bugs as they are all living in the grass.
  • the sofas in the villa could maybe do with replacing now as they are starting to look tired and worn.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again as you enjoy the benefits of a hotel but with the privacy of a villa!

Family holiday

I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Vale Da Lapa, We stayed in a 3 bedroom 3 bathrom#om villa with a private pool. The villa was huge and spotlessly clean - the whole family loved it. Breakfast was very nice with table service and a good choice of hot and cold food...

If you're into tennis there is a lovely tennis club next door which we used regularly. Can't wait to return next year!!
