I am considering booking a villa in the san lorenco area of vale do lobo and i would love to know a few things about the area before i book it.

Are restaurants & bars in the area very expensive?

Is the resort family friendly?

Basically if anyone has any info on the place i would appreciate any feedback

Vale Lobo area and Quinta do lago ( next door ) is a lovely place and family friendly. Is a very quit area, with a lot of lovely house and apartments, excellent beach with sunbeds, parasols and bars.

In Vale Lobo there are a small square with a few very good restaurants, bars, Kiosk and live music in the evening only in summer time.Mostly of the guests are foreights and there are only a few portuguese people. Is a big area and mostly of the house are a long distance to beach and square but there are bus runing all resort.

Next door is Quinta do Lago and Quinta Shopping with excellent shops restaurants and supermarket.

Negative points:

is not a typical portuguese village, long distance to beach and shops, only a few houses are near it, to much quit, long distance to ALMANCIL village with all manities like big supemarket, pharmacy and shops, very expensive restaurants and bars.

I had been there many times and I like it but only eat in restaurants a few times, they are very expensive! I travel by car and I use it all day to go beach, supermarket and Vale Lobo square or Quinta Shopping. The best is that is very quit during the day, very pacefull, not buzy beaches and nice atmosphere in the evening. However, we go many nights to Vilamoura ( 15 minutes by car), chepear and very good restaurants, more buzy, many bars, more funny.

O hope this informations help you.
