Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always excellent…
This is our third time here. As has now come to be expected the staff, all the staff, are friendly, helpful, smiling and generous with their support and assistance. The facilities are all first class. The indoor and outdoor pools are spotless, the lawns manicured, the apartments excellent and the location is second to none. Our early morning walks on the adjacent beach start each day with invigoration and a certain karma. Just love it here and look forward to next year. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

Our family has been coming to the Quinta do Lago Country Club for years. The Location is brilliant - a short walk to the beach and close to golf. The apartments are spacious and most have been recently refurbished. The staff are all very friendly and always provide great service. The facilities are continually updated and having both indoor and outdoor pools is great for all weather. The poolside cafe is perfect for a Summer lunch. The gym, although not large, is well equipped and maintained.

The apartment was superb. The grounds impeccably manicured. The location is unbeatable being immediately adjacent to the beach and a host of the best restaurants. The staff beyond wonderful. Kind, patient, helpful, efficient, accommodating and friendly. Always smiling. We go every year and each year we appreciate the place even more. I cannot recommend the place more highly.

Very nice accommodation. Stayed on 3rd floor with view mainly of lake. Very spacious 2 bedroom apartment for family of 4. Extremely fresh and clean (cleaned daily) . Excellent location close to board walk & lake.

Only slight negative note is no kids club or kids entertainment which isn't surprising as it's quite a small resort property. Greet kids pool though.

Pool bar is good with service until 8pm.

Exceptional, upmarket resort - perfect for a relaxing stay. Large, comfortable and very well equipped room with full kitchen and large terraces on both sides. Staff are friendly and discreet. The indoor pool and hot tub are blissful.

Qunita do Lago followed Vale do Lobo to become the leading 'Country Club' in the Algarve (followed by the 'Beach Clubs' of Pine Cliffs, Dunas Doradas and Martinhal).

The Algarve is a desolate place (almost a desert) which built tower blocks in Albuferia in the 1970s for cheap holiday deals. The beaches are amazing (go on for miles) however as they back on to the Atlantic, the water is colder than the Med and the drop off into deep water is faster. The 'Country Clubs' were a development in the 1990s to turn large vacant plots behind the beaches into up-market golf holidays and secondary locations for tax-exiles. The 'Beach Clubs' appeared in the naughties to address the major failings of the 'Country Clubs' (which were that they were set too far back from the beaches, and that not everyone wants to play golf in +35 degree heat).

People either love or hate the 'Country Club' formula:

(1) Loves being - high standard of accommodation, wider range of dining options, good facilities (esp. tennis, golf, pools etc. including kids clubs etc.) and very social (I know people who have been going to them with same friends for years).

(2) Hates being - expensive (all the on-site restaurants plus supermarkets are 2-3x cost of off-site options), sterile (you have no sense of being in a foreign country), sprawling (most are on big campuses with +25 min walks in +35 degree heat to get around).

Recommendations:

(a) Having stayed in most of these places (and enjoyed them), I would really really recommend to anyone (even on week long stays), to hire a car. The cost savings alone (supermarkets and restaurants) will pay for it (even on one week), and it will allow you to greatly increase your dining and day trip options (plus avoid the +25 min walks in 35 degree heat !). However note that it has become very hard to hire cars at shot notice in the Algarve - book ahead !

(b) If the golf aspect is not a major element to you, then I think the 'Beach Clubs' could be a better bet - much more intimate and integrated resorts and less sprawling. The 'Beach Clubs' are also much younger so the standard of accommodation is usually much higher. Dunas Doradas sits right between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago anyway if you need to play a round.

In terms of comparison, Quinta do Lago is the biggest and most desirable, although most of Quinta's non-villa accommodation is also quite ageing vs. say Dunas Doradas or Martinhal. It has several of Portugal's (and Europe's) best golf courses. Quinta's biggest drawback is that it really is sprawling (i.e. a car really is really essential) and is very disconnected from the beach (unlike Vale do Lobo) - it could be any country club in Arizona. It is very convenient and actually sits about 2 miles from the end of the Faro Airport runway (unusual positioning for such an upmarket club - there is always a plane overhead at almost all times).

I have visited this apartment hotel style Club on a number of occasions over the last 10 years and I am always impressed by the high standards for an hotel with only 36 apartments. The apartments vary in size from one to three bedrooms which are fantastically appointed with enormous balconies or terraces.
We always find the maid service exceptional, nothing seems too much! The reception staff are extremely helpful and friendly, from taxi to restaurant bookings - it just happens.
The Pool Bar serves limited but excellent lunches and delivers to the apartments during the day. enMaria and her team do an amazing job with what appears to be a very small kitchen However, there is no restaurant on site for the evening but there are two restaurant within 100 metres -one Casa Velha is better than many Michelin star restaurants.

Within metres is a path straight onto the Ria Formosa nature reserve and a sand path walk to a bridge across to the sand dunes and several miles of unspoilt beaches. Just over the bridge (supposed to be the longest wooden pedestrian bridge in Europe) is an excellent fish restaurant - Gigi's - only open lunchtime but right on the dunes - so relaxed. It is expensive but worth a least one visit on a trip.

If you can get into Quinta do Lago Country Club it really is Location Location Location.

We were there last year and the breakfast/restaurant wasn't open at evenings but the pool bar was and food was good. There's The Shack which is pub/ restaurant and a steakhouse both within walking distance.
