This aparthotel has very good quality-price relationship. Our room/apartment was big enough, the kitchen was well furnished and there's nothing like having your breakfast looking at the amazing view the terraces offer. Praia da Rocha and Praia do Vau are within walking distance. But... The bathroom really needs to be renovated, and the wi-fi signal to be stronger in the bedrooms: everybody was just sitting all the time in the lounge because it was the only spot where the wi-fi actually worked. ...

We stayed here while going to a family wedding. We had the 2 bed apartment. This was a great hotel and because it was early season it was not too busy. The grounds were kept well and the facilities were good. The only thing which would have been nice was if the outside pool was heated as we could not use this as it was too cold. Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again

We stayed here for 10 days. The location was great for us, quiet as it is away from the main strip, but a short (5 min) journey by car. The hotel had good facilities and the rooms were quite nice. We had an issue with the room we were initially given (unfortunately this also had the best view over the coast) and were moved immediately to another room. The staff were full of suggestions and recommendations for things to do, and were great in helping us book excursions.

Room was spacious and mainly clean and well maintained, well equipped (few hairs and fluff on bathroom floor and balcony). Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. It suited our needs as we did not want to be in the centre. Would recommend hiring a car to enable you to explore this beautiful area. The only downside, the restaurant menu was poor, but then so many hotels menus are, so no real surprise.

We stayed at estrela do vau two summers in a row, it'slocation, facilities and pools made it very convenient to us. We traveled with a child with learning difficulties and the resort was perfect as it was pretty quiet, family orientated and extremely friendly. It's not a luxury aparthotel but you can expect cleanliness, great attentive staff and pretty much all you need to make a great holiday stay. We chose the half board option, the buffet style food is plentiful, with something to please ever... Read more

My husband and daughter and I stayed in this hotel, for 10 days, have to say, we loved it, it had it all for a relaxing stay. I would return, perhaps, would have liked a higher floor, but then doubt if there would have been any issue, if we asked. A little walk away from the main beach, near a very small beautiful beach and lovely walk to the remainder. The staff here, were very nice, and I really need to mention, the beautiful smiling, dark long haired girl in the restaurant overseeing break... Read more

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment. Furnishing is not as much new but all the walls are recently painted and the apartment is very big. Kitchen is all equiped. About cleaning, nothing to say. We liked very much the pool area. Water was very clean, included the kids pool. In the restaurant, we had very nice and assorted buffets. At the bar, nice atmosphere, nice music and kind bar staff. Animation every night there. They have kids club too. Free wifi in the lobby, restaurant and bar. We really... Read more

Wifi in lobby which is good for some timeout of the sunshine. Tennis available, swing & slide for children. Sports bar at night. Didn't eat on site! So no comment. Small pricy shop at apartments.

Run down and staff very unhelpful. Bar had only a limited amount of drink as they told us they only get deliveries now and again. Food is only fair in the complex and would not advise anyone to eat here. Evening entertainment was very limited. Fountain in the front of the complex was emptied, When we asked was it broken cleaning staff told us it was more than likely emptied to safe money. When we stayed here before it made the complex look well when you entered the gate. A big let down as we hav... Read more

We stayed for 10 nights during June/July in standard studio apartment. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The apartment was equipped with everything you need. The hotel is very clean and towels are replaced every two days. The view on Praia de Rocha was spectacular. The beach is only few minutes drive from the hotel. Free wi fi is free of charge.Definitely will go back again. Mr &Mrs Alzuherri

Very happy with our stay, Apartments were spacious and clean. There was 2 bathrooms with 2 showers and a large balcony with 3 patio doors. 3 Swimming pools and a really nice pool bar with lovely food. Staff in the pool bar were not very friendly but food was good. Staff in the Hotel were very helpful and nice. It is a 10min walk to beach but you would have to get a taxi everywhere else, restaurants etc. which can prove to be expensive for a family of 5 as we sometimes needed to get 2 cars i... Read more

Three big pools. Wifi only in lobby but bit poor at times. Children 18,16 and 12 all made friends. Mostly Irish, German and Portuguese. Pool cafe... Read more

Spacious apartments, 3 swimming pools and some entertainment at night, makes for a great family holiday. We all enjoyed the holiday and the pools were a huge hit with the kids (aged 5 & 11). Staff were very friendly and the apartment was cleaned every day. Snack bar did some great food - but the hotel restaurant food was disappointing, tried once and it was overpriced and not great. The night entertainment, on some nights, was a hit (Michael Jackson tribute in particular), but some of the other ... Read more

We booked 2 bedroom apartment at end of June 2016 . The apartment was very spacious and clean really nice balcony but no sun in the evening . The snack bar at the pool is ok but the elderly man who runs it can be very cranky . And basically you need to get taxis everywhere we had to pay ?20.00 round trip to the supermarket not ideal so we had to eat out for lunch and most dinners . There is no supermarket nearby there is a shop on the sight but only good for milk and water I would nit stay ... Read more

Very bright and spacious and spotlessly clean accommodation. With air conditioners in all rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff in all areasof the complex.All facilities on site with no need to leave if so desired. Reasonably priced food and drink or very cheap compared to home.

We stayed here for a week in July and had a fantastic holiday. It was perfect for our kids aged 5 and 7. They really enjoyed the pool and the kids club. The staff in the kids club were excellent- the kids didn't want to leave when we went to collect them from the club!!! We had a one bedroom ground floor apartment with a large balcony. The rooms were spacious and clean. The cleaning service every day was great! The food in the snack bar was good although the staff there could be a little mor... Read more
