Lying in the heart of southern Portugal’s exclusive Quinta do Lago region, where pine-clad forests and nature reserves meet sweeping Atlantic Ocean beaches, this is home-from-home, garden estate living in supremely relaxed style. Set amongst soft, blush-pink walls and verdant grounds, you’ll find an impressive array of leisure and sports facilities, indoor and outdoor pools and a spa.
With so much to court your attention, you might never feel the need to leave the resort, but if the pull of golden sands is to too strong for you to resist, then the beach is easily reached by a swift (and free) shuttle bus. Golf aficionados will be pleased to know that the nearest 18-hole course is almost within putting distance, with special prices available for resort guests. Such attention to detail has earned the resort a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

How to Get There
If you have a car or bike and don't mind being away from everything come here! Especially if you play golf - mind you check what it costs! The reception staff varied from outstandingly helpful to surly and indifferent!
The room and facilities were great - dishwasher, cooker, wood burning stove etc!
That said 10 euro to use the small indoor pool and the rather pricey on site shop were less good as was the 1.5 miles to a shopping centre and beach. I hired a bike for the week and got around and loved it - warm and dry in November.
We visited here out of season and it was lovely and pleasant. The restaurants are lovely and the food great. It's about 20 min walk to the nearest town and also to the beach. We loved the beach area and the small cafes etc. The indoor pool was empty and it was lovely to use. I would stay here again but hire a car.
My husband and I use diamond resorts in the UK on a regular basis and because the standard is so good had no problem booking this resort we feel badly let down by a 2star accomodation akin to something from 30years ago the whole cleanliness in both apartments was a disgrace we arrived and had to move the next day to an apartment that was indeed worse than the first the shower filter where the water runs away was blocked with a ball of hair which I had to clean plus the overall cleanliness I had to clean so we could live in this hovel for a week
