The 5 day stay here was fine. Nothing special. The room was clean when I first got there. Was shocked to learn (after some nosing around) there was ample space for a restaurant downstairs but it is closed up and looks like like hasn't been used for a while. It would have been nice to not have to use the hotel beside us for food and drinks .
Me and mum stayed here in September 2013 and we had a great time. The apartment was clean, tidy and roomy and for the price excellent value. we went self catering and found the kitchen equipment adequate. Only a short walk to the beach and regular buses to nearby villages. We will certainly return .
We stayed for a week in October, out of season and it proved to be a great time to go if like us, you were just after a peaceful break to recharge the batteries. There were very few people around and we had both pools to ourselves for most of the time - both of which were perfectly clean and warm, and one of had a bar and terrace with very pleasant staff. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was adequate and comfortable with all amenities you would expect, hot showers, kitchen with fridge, toaster, kettle, TV with English channels and a great long balcony for breakfasts. The apartment was cleaned every day it seemed although we never saw the cleaners who made themselves scarce. Hotel staff were polite and amenable. The hotel itself is set only a slight way back from the coast (5 min walk to nearest beach) and about 20 mins from Praia Da Rocha with its numerable restaurants (all of which we sampled we thought were very good) It is in a rather odd position surrounded by what appears to be a fenced off disused quarry, or maybe just land awaiting development, but that shouldn't put anyone off because its irrelevent really. We can't rate the beaches here highly enough, with crystal waters and golden sand, when the tide is out you can walk to Praia Da Rocha along the beach and all the way to the lighthouses at the start of the Portmaio inlet, a good couple of miles I would say. There are plenty of caves and coves to explore along this coast. We were very lucky considering the time of year because the temperature was high 80's Farenheit every day and consequently we spent most of our time on the beach and in the sea. There is a good coast walk along the cliffs to the next resort, Alvor, which has a very quaint fishing village centre and another very long beach. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would come again in a heartbeat, it was made even more enjoyable by the Portugese we had the pleasure of speaking to, who exuded a warmth I have rarely experienced in other parts of Europe. The holiday was also very inexpensive.
Our stay at Vau Hotel was very very "average". Our first initial impression when we stepped into the hotel to check in wasn't the greatest one. We arrived at 12 noon and were anxious to get our stuff into the hotel room, change and go out exploring. Much to our surprise, we were told our room was not ready yet and to come back in an hour. So we left our stuff and decided to order some food at the hotel bar and sit by the pool. An hour later, and the receptionist informed us it still wasn't ready and that the cleaners were on lunch and we would have to wait. Two hours later, we finally got our keys, but were not taken to the room. We had two keys (one for the block, there are about 4 block apartments) and one for our room. The block key wasn't working and we couldn't get the door open so had to get the receptionist to show us anyway. The hotel itself was outdated and you can see it's in desperate need of a makeover. Although our first day was the worst, for the rest of the holiday we actually had a good time. The nearest beach is Prai Du Vau which is about a 10 minute walk. There is a fly over bridge which you have to walk under which has the worst pungent smell of sewage. A couple we had met on our first day who were also not sure of where their rooms were had told us later on that same smell of sewage was coming up through their sink pipes! Thankfully that never happened to us, but the smell was all around Prai Du Vau and it wasn't pleasant! There is another beach in Prai Du Rocha which is much nicer and bigger and also much more restaurants, shops and bars but is a long walk (about 25 minutes) but about 5 mins in the cab for about 4 euros. The most annoying thing about the hotel room was the shutters on the glass sliding doors leading the balcony. There are white shutters which cover the glass which we had initially been struggling to open and had to deal with half open shutters for almost half of our holiday. It was until we had seen the straps hidden underneath the curtains at the sides that those pulled the shutters all the way up!! If maybe there were some information and signs or even someone who took us to our room and explained, then maybe we wouldn't have been so irritated. Other than that, the room was cleaned every two days. There are no "do not distub" signs so if you want a lie in prepare to be awoken by the maids coming in. There was cutlery, pots, pans, toaster, fridge, microwave and a stove. In the room, we had bunk-beds and two singles beds which we pushed together. All in all, average! Hope this review helps!
Stayed for 2weeks.We arrived about 8pm but couldnt get in you have to go to the hotel next door to check in and they'll give you your room key and a front door key, dont think they open the reception till later on in the season. The room was basic but very clean(had a toaster) The balcony was huge with a sea view(in the distance) The maid came everyday towels were changed every 2 days the beds once a week. Praira do vau only has about 5 restaurants in it, beach is lovely 5min away,Praira do Rocha is a 25min walk love to know how some folk done it in 10mins. You can get the no 2 bus from bus stop at the beach it takes u into town and also to the marina at Portimao 1.75euro ,the no 7 takes u to the supermarkets aldi lidl and continette coming back it goes to alvor which was nice to.If you get back on the bus within an hour show your ticket and you get for free Get a free map from the lobby or the restaurants there good will give u an idea were to find places Tried out all the restaurants that people recommend, for breakfast or lunch kathys is best and u cant beat her prices. Lots of the restaurants do 3course meals for 8euro or less,if your peckish on your way home at night try fagins chippy last orders are 2am and there fish is lovely. Had a good holiday here weather was roasting but would have preferred to be closer to praira do rocha didnt realise how far away from everything these apartments were when we booked
