Grand Muthu Forte do Vale
Reviewed 1 June 2011

Clean, spacious. no problems with sound-proofing ( noted in earlier reviews ).
Well-equipped kitchen and we didn't need a kettle.
Air con worked very well, infact we made the bedroom too cold one night.
Helpful staff.
Hotel conveniently situated for both Old town- 15 min walk - and Strip- 5 min walk.

Just returned yesterday from Forte do Vale apartments and had a fantastic weeks holiday there. The apartments are spotless and very spacious. The kitchen is well equipped with full size fridge and freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The only thing there was no kettle in the room but we asked at reception and one arrived in our room the following day. Also there was nothing to hang washing on to dry on the balcony so the washing machine wasn't much use to us. The only other downside was it could be quite noisy we had people above us coming in at 5am who had tv on loud and could here high heels and singing. The noise seems to travel through the concrete floors.
The hotel is in a fantastic location between the Old town and the strip. Its only a 15minute walk to either of these and about a 15 minute walk to the beach. The beach is gorgeous but beware there is a steep hill to walk up coming back and sunbeds and umbrella are quite pricey at 15 euros a day. There are some fantastic restaurants around including The Big Shanghai round the corner and there is also a little Indian restaurant on the main rd to the strip. It doesnt look much but the meal was fantastic and reasonably priced. We also tried the Tres Palmeras restaurant opposite the apartments but were not too impressed. I ordered fillet of fish, rice and salad. When it arrived my fish was covered in thick batter (not on menu) and my salad was one lettuce leaf! There are also many supermarkets around the apartments we used Spar quite a lot and prices seemed reasonable. Overall we had a great holiday and would defintiely go back again.

Great , clean . modern hotel. Large spacious rooms. Great location, near strip and old town. Would highly recommend. Breakfast wasn't the best, would go somewhere else, didn't try evening meal. Overall thoroughly enjoyed it.

Brilliant holiday at the FDV the rooms are very spacious, and cleaned to a high standard. Could not fault anything great pool plenty of sunbeds.The bar staff very friendly as was the reception staff and the cleaners always had a smile for you. The apartments are in a great location for the old town and the strip would not hesitate to go back again great holiday plus fabulous weather.
