Vale do Lobo is the go to place for sun, golf and tennis lovers. The resort is huge with 2 golf courses and a tennis acadamy. The praca is home to Montys - western food and bar, la terezza - italian and a number of bars. Great for couples, groups, familes with young or teenage children.

The Royal course is still one of the premier courses on the Algarve, stunning scenery and in great condition. All of the staff on the golf side of the complex were very good in particular the ladies who man the golf reception and the course marshals, however the shine was taken off of the day by the poor quality of...

We loved this beach and visited frequently with our son. The beach was clean and well maintained. The sand is beautiful due to the red rock eroding from the nearby cliffs.

Two decent golf courses, the Royal and the Ocean. A nice decked area with restaurants above the beach and a sports/spa complex. The houses are mostly very impressive,... More

This golf complex is a complete shambles ! The staff are rude and the whole club house is like a building site . No practice facilities and course is just rammed with to many people.
