Séjour en hiver en Algarve

Posted Jan 6, 2015
Pros: Les suites trés grandes avec terrasse sur jardin paysager. L'accueil parfait et la gentillesse de tout le personnel.
Cons: L'espace piscine intérieure / spa : triste sans lumiere sans mise en valeur La piscine exterieure doit s'avérer minuscule en été
Location: Toutes les falaises et le cap peuvent se faire à pied, les plages en hiver sont désertes et magnifiques. Visite des grottes en bateau
Très belle région pour qui sait ouvrir les yeux et faire marcher ses pieds. L'Algarve est une belle destination en hiver.

Uitstekende Suites

Posted Nov 7, 2014
Pros: zie boven
Cons: Meer Ned. TV zenders en WIFI mogelijkheid in de Suite. Op een concurrerende door ons bezochte suite had elke kamer eigen WIFI aansluiting.
TV met alleen Nederlandse zender BVN. Wifi alleen bij receptie. Mooie ligging Suites met groene ruimte rondom. Diverse strandmogelijkheden in de buurt, maar een auto is wel vereist.

Tolle Unterkunft

Posted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: Die Großzügigkeit der Räume, schöner Blick aufs Meer aus dem oberem Schlafzimmer. Viel Privatsphäre.
Cons: Leider ist die Ausstattung etwas in die Jahre gekommen, Defekte Stellen im Bad nicht ausgebessert, Handtücher teilweise fadenscheinig.....
Location: Das Hotel liegt oberhalb von Cavoeiro, Mietwagen unbedingt erforderlich!!!!!
Wir haben neun schöne Tage im Vale da Lapa verbracht. Waren zu viert in einer Villa mit eigenem Pool. Das Haus ist von der Ausstattung sehr komfortabel, leider fehlte es an der Küchenausstattung, es gab weder Schüssel noch Salatbesteck oder Dosenöffner. Ansonsten fehlte es an nichts, das Haus wurde täglich gereinigt und auf Anfragen wurde prompt reagiert. Das Frühstück war recht ordentlich, entsprach aber nicht dem 5 Sterne Standard. Bei genauerem Hinsehen gab es hier und da kleine Mängel, entspricht eher einem guten 4 Sterne Standard.

Zum dritten mal absolute Spitze

Posted Oct 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Wir waren bereits zum 3ten mal in dieser Anlage. Der Service und die Suiten sind einfach nur fantastisch. Man sollte sich jedoch einen Mietwagen nehmen, die direkte Umgebung ist eher karg und langweilig. Mit Auto ist es aber ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt um die Algarve zu entdecken. In näherer Umgebung gibt es zudem einige tolle Restaurants.

A week at Vale de Lapa for 2 in Sept/Oct

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: The staff, the service, the size of the villas, the food, the atmosphere, the quiet location
Location: Location is great - not too far from the nearby cosy Caivero (by car or walk) but far enough for the hotel to be a little sanctuary for relaxing!
My partner and I stayed in Vale de Lapa for a week (end of Sept - start of Oct) and it was fabulous. From the moment we arrived we were treated well, the service was exceptional. The hotel is quite quiet but in a great way - we found our week really relaxing. A nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Somewhere to really recharge the batteries. We enjoyed the food and drinks - the menu is vast enough to try something new every day. The accomodation is more than adequate, very spacious with ample furnishings and equipment. We will definitely return and we are looking forward to booking again!

Beautiful relaxing hotel

Posted Oct 5, 2014
We had a week there and was surprised by the tranquility of the place. The hotel is small yet sits in large landscaped grounds full of beautiful ponds and manicured gardens. The accommodation is large, each deluxe suite is in fact a semi detached duplex house. With views over the pool or the gardens. The houses are clean and well appointed with comfortable furniture. Each house has double doors onto a terrace and a balcony from the main bedroom. Wide screen Tvs and a DVD player too. The only things I would would be keen for the hotel to issue more crockery and washing up detergent in the kitchen. Also the digital channels are mainly news channels so best to bring some DVDs if you'd like to stay in. The hotel restaurant is very good, we upgraded to half board for 19 euros each per night and enjoyed a three course meal in the restaurant every night - we hadn't expected to eat there every night, but you do need a car if you want to travel to local restaurants or to the beach. All in all a special find and a relaxing holiday had by us both. Thank you to the excellent staff who do a great job!

Clean and tidy resort

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Sitting out on the private patio with the waterfall and crickets in the background
Cons: I've no major or even minor grumbles
Location: Not much nearby, a pizza joint is about all. Probably need to have a rental car. Main town is Cavieros, which has a beach and lots of restaurants.
The hotel is really about 100 small houses clustered round a pool/bar/restaurant. There is not much else in the vicinity. We had a rental car, which I think is a necessity unless you want to walk about 45 mins to the nearest town on Cavieros. Some of those roads have no pavement btw. The resort is clean and in good repair. The only bad thing I could think of was there was some green growth on the white plastic drain for the outside pool. Little house was very roomy, and it had air conditioning that worked. Everything was clean and in good repair. Friendly and helpful staff. I'd stay there again.

VERY GOOD HOTEL WITH GOOD AMENITIES

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Excellent quality & space in accommodation. Lovely grounds and pool area. Parking. Sun beds always available. Enertainment not too loud or pushy.
Cons: more crockery, glasses, sharp knives. Make it clear in more than one language that wine is not complimentary. Provide promised equipment on day one.
Have stayed there two years running -.accommodation is excellent, as is pool area and surrounding grounds. Entertainment girl was very good and enthusiastic.Couple of niggles in the accommodaion - had to ask for toaster, iron and ironing board.No ice cube trays provided and not enough crockery, glasses, sharp knives. Beware of the 3 miniature bottles of.wine that are left in the room! They are NOT complimentary as appears to be the case! Asked reception about exchange rates - which they were unable to advise us on. Told to go into Carvoeiro to the banks, only to find it was a bank Holiday that day! Surely Reception should have known this and advised us? Despite the niggles, we would go again and recommended it to friends who went a month ago and enjoyed their stay. We know and like the restaurants in the area so did not use the restaurant on site.
