Everything was Great
Great hotel, Great people , Great Stay

Good location but basic apartments and a bit noisy
Apartment is basic but clean. Location is very good right on the beach but backs onto a busy and noisy highway. Reception staff friendly but lifeguard lady at the pool was very agressive to my children. Towels in apartment changed daily. T me tennis situated in the back of a garage!!! Indoor pool can be used but you need a bathing hat. Outdoor pool is very cramped and the sun beds go very quickly in the morning. Nice beach bars and a few restaurants on your doorstep with Alvor 10 minutes drive away for better choice.

Not a 4 star apartment.
Upon checkin we found the reception to be rather uninterested and not terribly helpful. Housekeeping left a lot to be desired as both bathrooms had left over soaps in the holders, from previous guests. Although the apartment had kitchen facilities, reception informed us to buy our own detergent for our dishes from a supermarket - we would have considered this a basic provision. On the plus side the bar and restaurant staff were great and the outside area, although we didn't use it, looked lovely. We did not bring children, but would recommend families to request a lower level apartment. The single beds were underneath a fully openable window. We were also unimpressed with the lack of security lighting outside the apartments. I would not be selecting this apartment again.

Excellent value for the money
Okay, at Jardin do Vau what you get is a basic one bedroom apartment that is steps away (50 meters) from a fabulous beach. The apartments are large enough to be comfortable and have a serviceable kitchen. My stay was during November, so I didn't make use of air conditioning, but it was available. The neighbourhood is quiet at night, which I appreciate, but a 1 km walk takes you to a street with bars and pubs (if you are a walker, you can easily go out without worrying about drunk driving). The apartment complex has parking for free, indoor and outdoor pools, and a bar/restaurant, all of which I used. While there are laundry facilities on site which you can use for 5€ per load, it would have been nice to have a washing machine in the apartment. Overall, it's a great location and represents excellent value for money.
