Pros: Extensive resort with all facilities that one needs. Range of accomodation that suits families as well as couples. Sport & service facilities are excellent.
Cons: There are a wide range of restaurants that suit most travellers with the food being good but not excellent. The main restaurant and bar/beach areas tend to have music/life music which is fine occassionally however can be a little much at times so we found a few restaurants that were not in the main areas of the resort and hence quieter or there is of course always the opportunity to have dinner outside the resort.

Pros: Vale do Lobo resort is luscious and green and extremely well kept, the staff were efficient, helpful and polite. A golfers paradise or simply a great place to relax. Hire a car if you want to explore surrounding areas.

Pros: Staff were really great, location was good, beds were reasonably comfortable although it was two singles and as we'd just got engaged we wanted a double.
Cons: Wifi didn't work, beds were crammed in- and there were three, when we only needed the one double- room service selection was really poor, facilities were ok but the pool was absolutely freezing, shower leaked everywhere and the bathroom grouting had mould growing on it, room temperature control didn't work so on a hot day was pouring out hot air into the room...to say it was a four star hotel it has two star qualities. Be glad the staff are fantastic because the rest of it was really poor. Would definitely never go back.
