Jardim do Vau, Portimao
Not a four star.
We chose thIs hotel based on the location which is right on the beach. It did not disappoint. Beautiful beach which was not to crowded. We made a mistake and ate dinner at the hotel restaurant the first night of our stay. The service was terrible as was the food. I ordered the duck which was recommended. When it arrived I question whether they had made a mistake. Turns out I should have sent it back. Four days later and I am still not feeling well. The rooms were not much better. Hair in the bathrooms from the previous guests and sand left on the coffee table. We wont be going back.

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.
