Vale do Lobo is a Golf Resort marketed as a gated community, but I assure you, there is no gate! It was one of the first resorts build in the area, around 1962, following the example of the Spanish resorts who were so successful in the 50’s.

Accommodation – Everybody rents apartments here or villas. They usually use a renting company, so they can offer an experience as close as possible to a hotel. We are renting our apartment also during the middle and high season (June to December).
Food – Near the beach, in the Plaza, you will find all the restaurants in the resort.
The ones I recommend you is U&Co and Partree.
Transportation – You need a car to get here and also to move around the resort. Although you can walk to the beach and restaurants (we make like 15 minutes by foot) and you can also walk to the supermarket (we make also 15 minutes by foot) you need a car if you want to visit other locations, like Loule, Faro or even Quinta do Lago resort, our neighbour.
You can rent directly from the resort cars and also electric bikes. If you want more affordable options regarding car rentals, read this.
Suggested daily budget – 50-60 EUR / 52-62 USD (Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a hostel, eating out a little, cooking most of your meals, and using local transportation. Using the budget tips below, you can always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this to be higher!)
Everything you neeed to know about traveling.
Vale do Lobo Resort is our home. Here is where we bought an apartment and spend our winters.
Being more accessible to middle class, is not that manicured as Quinta do Lago and in the recent 2 years, there is a real problem with dog poop, a problem that should not arise in a 5 star luxury resort. So as you see, I have some complaints about it! 🙂
However, being our home, we love it and here! You will find more accessible property prices than in Quinta do Lago, and it is still a place that can offer you a very peaceful, dreamy, tranquil life near the ocean.
