Really friendly staff, a fantastic location and superb pool make it a great place to take a family holiday. Grounds were not kept as pristine as they normally are.

We only stayed one night so not able to review fully. More instructions on Air conditioning would have been helpful - that all windows has to be closed for it to work and settings etc. More signage for Reception- that it is the Reception for the resort as we had to drive up and down looking for it. Everything is provided in the villa - well equipped but towels could have been a less threadbare. Receptionist very helpful.

We went in the middle of the COVID crisis so certain amenities like the pool and gym were closed. But the restaurants were still open and we were greeted by reception in person. You definitely need a car to get to this place. Lots of available parking on site. It is around a 30 min drive to Faro. We really liked this resort and our room was upgraded. We really like the heating racks and heaters in the bathroom above the door. Reception was friendly and helpful. The room and golf surroundings were well-maintained and spacious. It was a great escape during some difficult times around the world.

Lovely, comfortable, enjoyable stay!
We had a really enjoyable 5-night stay at Vilar do Golf. Our villa was clean, comfortable and spacious. We were disappointed that the resort charged guests €10 each, per day to use their indoor swimming pool. We stayed in early March and the outdoor pool is not heated, so we were looking forward to using the heated indoor pool. If we did use it for the 5 days we stayed it would've cost us an extra €100. Suffice to say, we did not use the pool and that is why it was a 4-star rating and not a 5-star rating.
