Vale do Lobo

Vale do Lobo has undoubtedly come a long way since its visionary beginning in 1962, at a time when the Algarve was predominantly a region inhabited by farmers and fisherman, and Faro Airport had yet to be appear on the scene. From early on, it was clear that Vale do Lobo had been touched by the mark of “unique” and its history, characteristics, family orientation and continuous vision have today propelled it to the forefront of luxury developments, in fact now the largest resort of sole ownership to operate in Portugal. Luxury apartments located at Vale do Golfe, an area with beautiful communal landscaped gardens and charming ponds

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

Wonderful stay

Review by Voyage295032 Surrey, United Kingdom

This was out first time to the Algrave and to Vale do Lobo resort. We were travelling without children. We stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of May in a two bedroom deluxe townhouse with a non-heated pool...

What can I say it was a wonderful experience. I had read several reviews about dissatisfaction with 5pm check-ins. We got there at 3pm and while our accommodation was getting ready, we were able to put our suitcases safely in a room next to reception and spent time at Spikes bar and restaurant, enjoying drinks and a light snack. It felt really smooth and we had no issues.

We noticed our accommodation was of a high standard, modern, surpassing our expectations. It was also spotlessly clean with lovely touches such as welcome snacks (juice, tea, coffee, croissants, bread etc.) to keep us going on day of arrival till we shopped at the local supermarket.

Getting anywhere on the resort was easy via the free shuttle bus. We used it several times a day on most days. There was a delay one day and we opted to get a taxi from the super market to the townhouse.

We loved the access to the beach, being able to eat at restaurants overlooking the beach such as Well Beach Club and enjoyed the sunsets. Staff at reception and in restaurants were all incredibly polite, friendly and helpful. I want to thank the security man who took a call from me before reception was open last Saturday and had reception call me asap to rearrange airport transfer due to flight delay.

I also want to thank the restort for lovely gesture of giving me a bottle of wine and a card on my birthday.

We used the taxi company recommended by the restort and we want to thank Ana Paula Guadalupe for being so warm, friendly and going out of her way to make sure we would get a taxi when we needed it.

The resort is not too far from Vilamoura, which is a good place to visit, lots of restaurants and cafes on the marina. It was convenient for us ti book excursions from there. We went on a boat trip to see the stunning coastline and magical Benagil cave. Fara old town is also lovely to wander round.

I would definitely visit again in the future and recommend to others wanting to visit the Algrave.

An excellent villa

An excellent villa, very well maintained, with all the necessary equipment and in excellent condition. Plenty of space, a great terrace and a very quiet area. The heated pool, which we opted for, was a great option and a great asset. We loved it!

Stunning place and golf course is amazing

Review by EvertonROC Liverpool, United Kingdom

We arrived at Vale Do lobo gold course and you could sense this was going to be special. The 2 golf course are amazing and the 16th on the Royal course is fantastic (I parred it twice so well happy). We stayed in a villa on the complex it consisted of 2 floors. Very nice and spacious. We got a 5% discount card which you can use in the restaurant and bars on the complex- which stretches to the beach. They do have a courtesy bus which will take you anywhere in the complex-including the beach bars- You can press the button on the bus stops and it goes through to reception, they will then send a bus to pick you up free of charge. Some nice beach bars within walking distance...

Julia’s, Fins etc right on the beach. The cheeky pub was very good on a Friday night, but it’s a cab ride away €15 Vale do lobo is very expensive for drinks and meals. We went into Villamoura one night (€16 in a cab) Food and drinks were a lot cheaper. I would go back, to bake do lobo for the golf, but go into Villamoura of a night.

Nightmare end to holiday no compassion from staff

Review by zelmo dublin

We have been returning customers to vdl for many years, we have always found it to be a great place to stay this was our first time back since COVID and this holiday meant a lot to us. Firstly the accommodation was comfortable however the apartment was grubby the kitchen counters all stained and marked. I am a member of their resort loyalty and you get nothing as promised in this we arrived at 5 as we knew that was the time but when I requested a late check out I was told no and not even offered another propert to use for the day and they had some available we would have paid for this too, no sleep the night before we left as when we returned from dinner we found a broken picture on the floor smashed and a note from security in portugeese to say the alarms had gone off and they checked the property that a window was left open , I found this very unnerving and they should have called us I couldn’t sleep after it as I was so nervous of being broken in to again , we never left any doors open so obviously someone did try and access the property while we were out I did find a number of personal items moved...

Rang reception and got no help or did they show any sympathy just passed me onto the private security company who stressed me out more as they had no English terrible end to our holiday this is not what it used to be and also the toilet brushes are filthy and we had to replenish the toilet paper ourselves avoid the place

Lots of housing options at Vale do Lobo

Review by Ronald P Sequim, Washington

Stayed with my honey in a deluxe two bedroom apartment with a hot tub with a view of the ocean that I booked directly through Vale do Lobo’s website. The VDL property is gorgeous with picturesque golf courses, a major tennis club, swimming pool and much more. VDL offer “van” service, but having a car is a better option unless you want to stay in your apartment because the property is so vast...

Our hot tub was outside on a upper deck and heated to 29 C.

This is a high end resort that is well maintain and a good location for sun worshipers. Our unit; A32B, had three levels, a well equipped kitchen, ensuite master bathroom with separate tub and shower, a small second bedroom with an adjacent bathroom with shower and a living room. There are lots of housing options on the VDL property that can be obtained from multiple sources.
