“great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

This is a really lovely complex right on a lovely sandy beach just a short walk from lots of really nice restaurants only downside is that the bus journey from the airport was far too long and there was no food available as it was late at night but the bar staff organised a toasted sandwich which was really nice after the long journey

Room Tip: room over looking the pool area

The apartment was bright , clean and had an amazing view of the beach. The beds were comfortable and the patio spacious. The staff were most friendly and helpful. We would certainly recommend Jardim du Vau, the location is fabulous.

We have stayed at this hotel for 6 years now and absolutely love it. You just can't beat the location, right on the beach with amazing sea views. The apartments are large, bright and airy and spotlessly clean. All the staff are friendly and couldn't do more to help. The facilities are great with onsite shop, restaurant, pool bar, gym, indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi...it lacks nothing!

Have stayed here a few times and will be going back this May.
It is not the most modern of apartments for technology, however when I am on holiday, I am not there to watch television or use Wifi, that is what I am getting away from!
The rooms are tastefully decorated and everywhere is always spotless and the service is excellent. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is delicious and Chico behind the bar is always entertaining! The sandy beach is right on the doorstep with a restaurant right there so you can eat and watch the sunset. There are a selection of bar/restaurants that are child friendly, local to the apartments but are not too noisy that would disturb your sleep. Can not wait to go back.

I can not praise this hotel too highly. We were there when most of Portugal was closed (for the winter) The balconies (complete with covered sunbeds, table and chairs) faced south and so caught the sun most of the day.
The rooms were large and airy. Effective heating (and aircon)
The linen was changed whenever it was necessary (not just as in the brochure twice a week)
I had a small nose bleed the day after the sheets had been changed and they were changed immediately.
The staff on reception spoke English (and Dutch, and French, and Spanish) and along with the other staff were friendly and very helpful.
Special mention here, to the 'men in yellow' who did the maintenance - lovely smiley people!
There was a huge indoor pool and a Jacuzzi ( normally empty) a well equipped gym and a well stocked library.
Don't know about the summer, but in winter this was a perfect place to be - we even booked an extra week!
See you next year!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

A stunning location within yards of the beach and beach bars at Praia Do Vau. The apartment overlooked the sea and had sun almost all day.

The rooms were spacious and clean and there were adequate cooking facilities if required. The staff were friendly and always helpful

The beds however could do with being replaced as with the TV.

The Spa was good but all bathers have to wear a bathing cap which can be purchased for 4 Euros from staff at the Spa when you can find them.

The pool bar was closed when we were there but looked a reasonable size beside an excellent outdoor pool.

All in all great value for money.
