    Restaurant needs updated with new friendly staff that would make you want to go back. Bar staff at pool were great but restaurant needs to be looked at. Cold plates, tiny steaks compared to nearby restaurants. Ambience and staff that can smile to make you come back.

    Spotless accomodation. Reception and cleaners staff were exceptional to deal with.

    wi fi not working, as out of season no facilities, walls are paper thin we could hear everything from upstairs, even with sat nav difficult to find. Car is essential as nothing in neighbourhood with in walking distance. As said was out of season and were few in complex but feel in summer when busy the noise from surrounding properties would be difficult.The staff especially cleaners were all exceptional but would not consider returning

    Layout of properties were exceptional it is in a lovely location but very isolated.

    Some minor disadvantages are: - some ants in the bathroom upstairs (only there) - but it's not very disturbing and I didn't even decide to ask about that - it was a bit difficult to make A/C work in the heating mode - although we managed that - a small tip or something like this how to do that will make a difference for future visitors :) - cold - but clean - water in swimming pool - but it was November so... it's not something to brag about, really! :)

    Very kind staff, absolutely no problem with check-in even when I hasn't specified exact time of arrival. We (I and my 3 friends) had whole half of house for us. It's really big - has living room, kitchen, toilet, two bedrooms, bathroom, terraces and garden - there was really plenty of space for everyone. Also parking spot - it's free. Available coffee machine (need to buy your coffee though), oven, toaster, fridge, freezer, washing machine etc. Air conditioning in bedrooms and living room. One of the best advantages in my opinion are garden, space and swimming pool. It was unbeliveable but we were alone, I think no one else stayed at this time (9-13 of November). It's a beautiful time to visit Algarve and Colina da Lapa Club is a perfect place to stay. You can sit in the garden, swim in the swimming pool (although water is not heated), use sunbeds, drink coffee and enjoy the sun and more than 20-23 C degrees) and of course sightsee Algarve (I reccommend Afurada beach if you are looking for something very close to Carvoeiro). If you ever wonder if November is a good time to visit Portugal - yes, it is! To sum up, thank you for the very pleasant stay! If I visit Algarve once again I will definately choose you again :)

    I think that it is time for some reinvestment at the site. The villas are large and beautifully spacious but are in need of some refurbishment as the interior furniture is out dated and tired. The sun loungers at the pool side are nearly all broken. It wouldn't take too much investment to turn this complex round.

    This was our eighth stay because we love the location, the wonderful site and the excellent service from the staff. It is relatively quiet although this time we had some road noise from out side the site which was just unfortunate. Will be returning next year hopefully.

    The resort is well laid out, the gardens were very well kept and the facilities team/ HOUSE keeping team do a first class job. Reception and maintenance staff were all very helpfully. We both THOUGHT that nothing was to much trouble if you ever asked for anything. Very friendly staff throughout our STAY.

    The property is outdated and long due for renovation. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to care much. Employees are fairly nice and accommodating but the conditions are not even 3 stars not to mention 4. Rooms are dated with old shrieking furniture and not the most clean with a persistent smell of mold, pool is quite small with weird shower and most sunbeds are broken, restaurant is expensive by any standard, the entartainment/games are is a joke, etc... Park like setting is nice and the property has seen better days for sure, but now everything looks old and in dire need of restoration. All in all not at all worth of 4 stars, there are way better options around. I really don't get the other reviews on booking.com that give a good score to this property... they might be either very old or simply fake.

    Not much

    The kitchen could have been a bit more equipped; The hot water tank not enough for 4 people to shower. Bad Wi-Fi This things were not so important, anyway..

    Very nice, spacious villa, perfect for 4 people. Great staff (reception and restaurant). The outside area gives you the impression of a 4th star resort, with green grass, nice trees and paved alleys. We enjoyed tennis and ping-pong facilities. The resort is 2 minutes by car from the most beautiful beach - Playa dos Caneiros - and 5 minutes from Slide and Splash waterpark (really worth to be visited!).

    The internet didn't work, which posed problems when we wanted to arrange things to do and get everything ready for our next stop. It was NOT soundproof between rooms and one side had a crying baby, while upstairs were hard-partying 20-somethings. Would never go there again, nor recommend it to friends.

    The room itself was good - not great.
