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.

Vale du lobo holiday

Review by jillrl2021 Sheffield, United Kingdom

Beautiful resort but very expensive! A bit too far away from every where for a family stay. Villa was lovely but not overly clean. Transport is a must as waiting for the shuttle bus is a nightmare...

Staff are not overly friendly either! Says on a private beach but not about the fact you have to pay 25 euros for two beds and an umbrella. Also be aware you can’t get into your holiday villa until after 5pm. After an early flight we were unable to settle in until teatime with two tired kids. Not a place I’d return to an definitely needs updating and refreshing of decor etc! Looked tired and shabby even early into the season. Also our private pool had no barrier around and a very significant drop. Restaurants are limited but nice food but are expensive. Taxi service’s are readily available but are also costly!

Beautiful resort but you need to plan your days

Review by lyndaandgary Esher, United Kingdom

This was the first time we stayed here and it is a large resort with amazing villas dotted along the tree lined roads, apartments and houses. We opted for a one bed apartment which was nice and spacious, but according to my friend who’s stayed there a few times, these are often privately owned so each apartment might be slightly different inside, I’m not sure. Just two things were a little annoying with ours, the hairdryer was attached to the wall, like a lot of hotels and look prehistoric and was really slow, secondly we couldn’t use the safe as you had to pay for it, which would have meant a trip back to reception, which isn’t just around the corner.....who charges for safes nowadays? They need to remove this charge...

The resort itself is lovely but you can’t just pop for a swim, everything is quite a way away so planning would be something that needs to be done on this type of stay. For us it didn’t matter as only stayed a couple of nights as was here for a wedding.

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.
