The luxury Vale do Lobo Resort is located on the beachfront between Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Vale do Lobo is just 20 minutes' drive from Faro Airport, 15 minutes from Vilamoura and 25 minutes from Albufeira.
This purpose-built luxury resort stretches across a beautiful pine valley and fig trees with beautiful lakes dotted with the Atlantic Ocean on the Algarve coast of Portugal. Moroccan style buildings with their red roofs and studded terraces add to the character and beauty of this exclusive village. Accommodation here are luxury villas and luxury apartments, but there are a few luxury hotels here that cater to couples, families and groups in golf vacations. For sports fans there are two excellent golf courses and a first-class tennis academy with 14 golf courses, a health club and a horse riding school. For those who just want to relax and soak up the sun, there are three miles of pristine golden sandy beaches backed by cliffs of low red sandstone.
Vale do Lobo has 2 excellent 18-hole golf courses. The Royal is famous for its 16th opening where golfers have to drive through Wadden on the cliff. The Ocean course was designed by the late Sir Henry Cotton, and it is less challenging than the Royal Course but still an exciting course. There is also a large driving range to do your exercises before trying your hand in 18-hole courses. Golfers will love the palm paths and the almond trees lining their way to the sea.
Located right in the heart of the resort, Barringtons Health Club is often used by international football and cricket teams. The club provides excellent facilities including indoor and outdoor pools, children's pool, health and fitness center, gym, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, squash and snooker courts, table tennis, restaurant and bars.
In the evening, restaurants and bars operate with live music and discos on the beach in the summer. The restaurants serve a good variety of cuisines, including local and international dishes. Many restaurants are located on the waterfront, offering great views across the Atlantic.
Golf is the main activity for most people on their direct holidays to Vale do Lobo but there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
