great villa,a home away from home
The setting--beautiful, rolling hills in the western Algarve. The staff--friendly, professional, with a "can do" attitude. The villa--enormous, clean, well-equipped with every kitchen amenity and several gorgeous balconies. The pool and spa area was beautiful and large. I could go on about how amazing this place was, but essentially it was the highlight of our entire trip to Portugal! They didn't provide any shampoo or soaps, but this was a minor point as most of the guests there stay for longer periods so therefore probably bring their own.
While we were vacationing in Spain we took an over-night trip to Portugal. The views from the room were beautiful We actually had such a great time and were so impressed with the Spa and services that when we got back to Spain we recommended Parque Da Floresta to acquaintances who were also staying at the same hotel in Spain and they went for a couple of days. There was no blow dryer in the room, a minor inconvenience.
This is an excellent resort, we had a 3 bedroom villa, which was spacious and very well equiped including a microwave, hairdryer, 2 bathrooms, 2 balconys etc. The pool was fantastic with lots of loungers, there are several restaurants on the resort and the spa was amazing, offering all the usual treatments to a very high standard. The golf course looked amazing. On the whole no, but you really do need to have a car. Reception is about a mile from the villas, Lagos is approx 12 miles and Sagres 15. But there is more than enough to keep you amused within the resort
Fantastic rooms, very cosy and stylish, hotel was opened in June 2010; extremely nice and helpful employees; small pool, fantastic breakfast location of the Casas do Moinho is a little bit off the track, but if you are looking for deserted beaches and a place where the clock ticks slower than somewhere else this is the place to be
the design of the room in a typical portugees village is really nice. the break fast is huge; well furnished, home made, with fresh products. from the swimming pool there is a nice view on the mountain and the mile.
Friendly, owners could not do enough for you, relaxed, stylish modern room, lovely location with fabulous views, secure, family oriented, lovely pool, close (5 mins drive) to a fantastic beach for surfing or swimming (when safe). A bit noisy at night as our bedroom was on a busy street with passing traffic very close to our heads. Not recommended for elderly or disabled visitors due to location at the top of very steep hills and all facilities for dinner involved walking down and then back up the hills or driving. No air conditioning.
Casas do Moinho must be one of the most friendly hotels we have stayed. The staff were extremely helpful and it is beautifully located to explore the Costa Vicentina.
