Our apartment was covered with ants the kitchen and living area
Excellent apartment with a pool. Golf courses fantasic but expensive. The apartment was advertised as being 500 metres from the sea with sea views. This is not the case. you had to drive 15 minutes to get to the sea.
Excellent resort, very safe and something for all ages. Great beach and accommodation options. Would highly recommend.
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. Many of the restaurants on the Vale Do Lobo resort are overpriced and the food disappointing. Similarly, the onsite supermarket is incredibly overpriced (€7 for a can of deodorant!) so beware.
Extensive resort with all facilities that one needs. Range of accomodation that suits families as well as couples. Sport & service facilities are excellent. 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.
We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment and could not have gotten better accomodation. Everything was luxury and the staff and security were very helpful. The kids loved the beach, the pool, the tennis and the putt putt golf. Would recommend to someone wanting to get away and relax.
It is not a Hotel. They have service apartments of various sizes. Good for longer stay. Great for golfers or Tennis enthusiasts. Because of the size there is a mini bus service for the resorts, very efficiently run. The reception area is too far away from the actual drive way. Long procedure checking in. No seating while waiting for bus to collect.
total privacy ... big appartments, lots of space1
nice hotel similar to villar do golf parking down by sea
We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa and it was absolutely luxurious
The garden...and location...and service The old furniture and plastic terace equipment ...this is in contradiction to the general standards of the" luxury collection" ....really disapointing
Very little, the hotel was closed and the facilities were very limited. It is great in the summer but a no no in the winter, avoid at all costs Deserted, no facilities. Poor location if everything is shut
The location and excellent facilities Not really a complaint but the restaurants on site are very expensive
Location to Beach, Breakfast included was a bonus. We had booked a TownHouse and from the website looked to be a modern, bright airy property; on arrival it was old, dark and damp; with bronchial problems in the family we have to move; 3 options later! We upgraded to a beautiful villa at extra cost of e2500 above that already paid! A expensive but good experience in the end.
The resort was excellent. Our apartment was equipped with all needed. We had nice rooms and nice kitchen and living room. Better than we thought. The facilities of the resort were very good, staff very helpful and we consider this hotel as one of the best we had had.
I liked how close it was to old albuferia, only 17min walk, and how close it was to the beach. also liked the private beach they took us to. Very quiet and clean. The apartments are just brilliant. Well equipt, plenty of hot water. there are 3 pools at the resort, would of been nice if one of them was left for adults only. The bus could of been a bit more frequent to and from albuferia. The apple bar has absolutely no atmosphere, better off drinking in the town. If your mainly english speaking, the Tv was a no no. nearly all german channels.
Standard of accomodation was excellent. Spa facilities excellent. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Cleanliness excellent Standard and comfort of accomodation. Friendly, helpful staff. Location, although 15 mins walk from centre it was much more tranquil.
Really great accommodation and very family friendly. The swimming pool and playground area were ideal and the whole resort was very safe and pleasant for strolling around. A short taxi ride brought us to Albufeira to the lovely beach during the day and the great restaurants in the evening. The restaurant and bar were disappointing, it would have been nice to socialise in the resort in the evenings but there was nothing to encourage us to do so. However we really enjoyed our evenings in Albufeira town where there were many lovely restaurants. The day-time shuttle bus service could be improved as the resort is a little too far from Albufeira to walk. An evening-time shuttle would be very convenient also.
The big room, perfectly equipped kitchen, the big bathroom, parking nearby. The quiet place suffices Very expensive access to the Internet, and thus, very low speed
Everything about our stay there was excellent. Rooms, Pool areas were all spotless and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Nice apartment. The reception closed before we arrived (17:00) and there was left no note on the door on on how to get the key. It took half an hour to puzzle out that se had to find a restaurant who then in turn called security. Calling the hotel didn't help as no one picked up the phone.
The apartment with private pool is fantastic. Nice garden with pool view where we took our breakfast. Comfortable rooms. Nice design and areas.
We only went for a short break and really felt relaxed and pampered when we left.
I would recomend encosta do lago resort club, I can not speak highly enough of it, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, do not hesitate to stay here
