We stayed in the Beach Club for 2 weeks early June. This was our second stay and it was as good as last time. We had a two bedroomed apartment with roof terrace.
The resort is very family orientated and our young children made many friends and we spoke to alot of people who we had met at the same time last year so obviously lots of people return yearly.
With regards to the apartment, I didn't notice the matress protectors last time but certainly did this time as they were so noisy every time we moved. I also agree that the pillows could be better. The apartments are cleaned daily which is great with small children as they trail sand etc in every evening.
If I had any issues it would be that the pool bar is quite expensive and the on site shop is a total rip off charging €3 for a bottle of water that costs less than a €1 in the supermarket. Normally we eat out alot however this year we cooked in the apartment a bit and there is a good supermarket called Pingo Doce in Almancil which has everything.
The restaurant is nice as is Maria's restaurant on the beach. Also, the restaurants in Vale Do Lobo are great and super for kids as they have music nightly for the children to dance to.
Overall this is a great resort, well suited to families and exceptional self catering accomodation. I hope we will return again next year.
