We recently returned home after having our wedding at the Cascade - words cannot express how wonderful this place is.The food, location, rooms etc etc are all fantastic. However, its the staff that make this place special - they will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is a memorable one. All of our guests were wowed by the service, and most will be returning to sample the hotel again. Thanks to everyone in the Cascade - see you soon

Room Tip: All rooms are stunning but try and get a sea view room or a suite for the ultimate experience

The beauty of this resort is on show from the moment you enter the front gate. The amenities inside the main hotel which include the "Purpur" bar and the "Senses" restaurant are as well defined and unique as the three swimming pools on show outside. The views at meal times are almost as good as the food and drinks available to guests.

Our apartment came with a double bedroom, a kitchen which included an oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer and microwave, separate toilet and shower rooms, a dining room and outdoor table and cheers to enjoy the sunshine at breakfast time. Special thanks to the cleaners who took great care of the place whenever we had left to go on a daytrip (for which there are many options).

The staff at the resort were very helpful with any requests we made and were always polite and courteous.

The resort is within walking distance of the Ponta da Piedade. I would recommend this walk for anybody wishing to get a closer look at the spectacular Portuguese coastline.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot think of a single thing which could have gone better.

Obrigado!

Just returned from five nights in this hotel!! Wow wow wow!!!

Fantastic five star hotel and staff are fantastic. Very helpful and recommended us some very good restaurants.we stayed in one of the apartments, which had EVERYTHING you needed! Even heated floor in the bathroom and our own private sun loungers. (Note: no need to bring beach towels, they are provided in room and around pool). Views from the pool area is fantastic!! Very peaceful. Worth a try of the cocktail bar too they are delicious!

As the hotel is a walk from shops ect, in the apartment they provide you with a shopping list and will go shopping for you, which was very helpful. Also a tip, if you get a taxi to lagos, get a receipt and the hotel will give you the money back. This is fantastic!!!
Also lovely walks to the beach are easy to find too!

If you are looking for a very relaxing stress free holiday this is the place to go!!! IT IS PARADISE!!!

We will defiantly recommend to others and hopefully visit again soon.

We are delighted that we choose the Cascade Resort for our first family Holiday – we now understand why people keep going back to the same places. We found all the staff very friendly and helpful; this hotel truly has everything you need to keep the whole family entertained.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment overlooking the driving range with a partial sea view. The apartment had everything you needed to be fully self-sufficient (if you wanted to be) – coffee machine, washing machine, dishwasher, induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, flat screen TV, toaster even a juicer and hand mixer - all the appliances where of high quality (that includes the Jacuzzi bathtub, which had a number of different settings). The apartment was very clean when we arrived and we could not fault the cleaning that was carried out daily by housekeeping – even toping up the pool towels while we were at the pool.

The onsite facilities were also top-notch especially for children. Our son used the kids club everyday (his choice to keeping going back), they have a very large on-site playground with everything a child would want. There’s sand-pool with plenty of buckets and spades to make sandcastles. At the main pool there was table tennis and a foosball table. My husband used the driving range and putting green. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to the spa (I think that really would have been the cherry on top!).

As for location, it is a bit outside the town centre. We had a car (which is recommended for the area) so we drove into the town centre but there are busses that go into town. We were happy to be away from the hustle and bustle and enjoyed the quieter location – besides I don’t think a hotel in the town could have offered the same amount of facilities. There’s a very nice sheltered beach just down the road. It is also very conveniently located for the motorway (A22).

I think you would find it very hard to find a hotel better than the Cascade Resort – thank you again for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: If you like your coffee I’d say bring your own – the supermarkets in Portugal seem to only sell coff...

My hubby me and our four boys stayed here. The kids club run by Leanne for the little ones (ages3-10) was fantastic. I cannot praise her enough for the kindness shown to our little one Fred. Every morning even though he had his big brothers he could not wait to go. Leanne even said our big boys aged 11 and 12 could stay with Fred and his new mates, they all had great fun. Another upside to the hotel was Pedro on reception he recommended some great places to eat and his hospitality was second to none in fact I would go as far as to say I have never been made to feel so welcome at a resort. He introduced us to other staff and every day welcomed us with a smile and our name, nothing was too much trouble. So what's the down side. We'll we stayed in this resort in April 2014 in a two bed apartment. Breakfast for our family for a week cost 80 euros a day - I had nearly fell over ! 560 euros for breakfast for a family ! Not good. We miss pitched this hotel it is suited for couples or people with very young family. My older boys are 11 11 and 12 and there is not much to do. When I read about the golf academy and the football academy I automatically presumed it was for children and not professionals ! Probably too much holidaying in an all inclusive resort lead me to this conclusion. If you're looking for a peaceful time in a relaxing five star hotel with attentive staff then look no further. For a family of six with busy boys it's been nice but not enough activities for teens.

Room Tip: Rooms two bed apartment Ab Fab !!

We visited cascades in April with our 7 month old daughter for our first family holiday. The hotel, staff and setting is brilliant. We could not ask for a better experience!

The medium-sized hotel opened in 2013 (144 rooms). With its two and three floors and its diverse architectural form it blends well into the landscape.
At the time of our stay in the first half of April there were very few guests.
The free underground parking, from which we could easily reach our room without a long walk, turned out to be very comfortable.
The hotel is not directly on the beach, but it is ideally suited as a starting point for the exploration of the western Algarve and the South West coast of Portugal. If you have got a rental car (which is highly recommended) you can access the A22 motorway within minutes. Getting to the old town of Lagos on foot means about half an hour’s walk.
The hotel is located at the end of a cul-de-sac meaning that there is no problem with traffic noise.
Already before our stay we had contacted the hotel by e-mail which was replied to quickly in contrast to another 5-star-hotel on the Algarve. This provided a first impression of the level of service at the Cascade and facilitated our choice of hotel.
We were welcomed by Mr. Pedro who provided us with numerous tips on rewarding excursions from the hotel.
An inquiry regarding the lighting in the room was quickly responded to by a member of the front desk.
On departing at the end of our stay another employee inquired about our satisfaction with the hotel and had a sympathetic ear for critical comments. This is the way a hotel should deal with its guests.
We had booked breakfast only, which was provided as a buffet. The food quality was good, however there was no variation. Also we missed the offer of additional individually prepared dishes which is normally found in 5-star hotels.
Dinner was not offered as a buffet due to the few guests and therefore we preferred to have our meals in different restaurants in and around Lagos where you have large choice of cuisines.
The hotel compound comprises a large swimming pool, but in April the water was still quite cold. However, there is a fairly large and sufficiently heated outdoor pool in the spa area which can be used free of charge. Next to the pool there is also a hot tub and a sauna.
The sunbeds at the pool proved to be very convenient because of the thick pads.
The only deficiency we noticed in the pool area was the fact that there is no handrail next to the stairs leading into the pool. This makes access less comfortable for elderly guests.
We had booked a standard double room and were given a very nice large room on the ground floor overlooking the swimming pool. There was a spacious covered terrace outside. The bed in the room was large and so was the size of the TV screen. The bathroom offered plenty of space, too. There were all the amenities typical of 5-star-hotels apart from a coffee maker.
The housekeeping usually turned up around noon and again at ca. 5 pm. The room was cleaned perfectly.
Two minor improvements should be considered by the hotel management regarding the rooms. The light of the attractive bedside lamps is definitely too weak for reading and the sliding doors to the bathrooms should be fitted with noise-reducing rubber profiles.
The free Wi-Fi proved to be fast and reliable. Access codes for all our electronic devices were handed out without any restrictions.

The hotel can definitely be recommended especially if you are looking for a quiet place to stay. If travelling to the region once more we would choose the Cascade Resort again. The room rates are relatively high, but you can find attractive offers off season.
