Vale do Lobo is one of the large residential and apartment resorts along the coast. We selected an apartment that turned out to be amazing- two master suites, three balconies/patios and a very private sun deck with our own hot tub. We could see a peak of the ocean and one the golf courses. Totally modern with air conditioning in...

The weather was great, everything is well serviced and provided for. It lacks any authenticity or culture and if that's what you want then I wouldn't bother. It's a very easy place to holiday but I feel like you could be anywhere in the world. Prices are inflated for tourists.

Vale do lobo, obviously exclusive, but great safe holiday destination for families, golf courses are top class, you need to book restaurants well in advance of travel sometimes months ahead for the popular weekend hotspots, the central square near the beach is loud and family based, with activities for young children, and then turns into a hub for young, very...

Lovely resort but beware when parking. If you are not facing in the direction of traffic you will get a fine of 30-150 euros. You can pay at the booth next to crazy golf but you won't get a receipt. Alternatively you have to go to Loule to pay.

Just lovely. Warm safe sea. Easy to park. No unexpected claims to pay for a surprise stain on a carpet. Will WANT come back, unlike to a certain other place I visited in June. I did not take photos of every inch of the beach on arrival - as insurance against a dodgy claim that I created a stain -...
