Thank you Sandy Blue for an amazing holiday. Our apartment in Jardines do Golfe was perfect for our family. It was spotlessly clean and everything you could need was provided. It was a real home from home. We loved the Vale do Lobo pool and the free passes were a massive bonus. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends. Thanks once again ???? We are just very sad that we couldn't stay longer!
We had a lovely week, it was a lovely apartment and all the extra touches like the food on arrival were great.
Once again our visit to Vale Do Lobo was fantastic, relaxing and a great place to be. Sandy Blue gave us a first class service and the apartment was really great. Having dealt with a number of agencies over the years, Sandy Blue does go that extra mile. Great service, people and experience.
Had a lovely relaxing time. For me the highlight was hiring a bike in the next resort and cycling around the nature reserve .My husband and daughter enjoyed their Dune Buggy experience or whatever it was !! Apartment was comfortable and spacious.
The holidays were awesome and we had a really really good time. Not only in Vale de Lobo also in Lagos. The apartements in Vale de Lobo were very clean, neat and modern. We were really positively surprised about the whole area. We did some stand up paddling in Sagres, some surfing at the west coast, kajaking in Lagos, sightseeing along the south and west side and of course a lot of chilling at the wonderful beaches at the algarve. J And the eating at the restaurants was a pleasure!!!
All was great one again, the Apartment was lovely and overall we had a great holiday, now our fourth with Sandy Blue at Jardins do Golfe. Thanks again for all your help, you made it all very easy.
Our family enjoyed a lovely week in the Gardenia apartment. It was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed including a hair dryer for my daughter and a coffee machine for me! It was very quiet and easy to get down to the beach and the wonderful pool at the front. Sandy Blue were on hand if anything went wrong - but it didn't! Highly recommended!
We just wanted to say a big thank you to SandyBlue (and you!). It was lovely to be able to meet you all in the office. We had a lovely week away and explored a bit more of the Algarve. We travelled the length and breadth visiting Portimao (got very lost trying to leave!) and VRS at the other end. Lots of lovely food and walks on the beach The weather wasn't great but as we said when we popped in it suited us. We also met up with our very good Portuguese friends who travelled down to meet us in Faro where they have a property so we really had a great week. We will definitely use you again. I have posted a note on the SandyBlue website and we will definitely use you again.
Having travelled through the beautiful Vale do Lobo on a previous trip to the Algarve we already knew it was a place we would love to holiday were we to visit again, so when this opportunity came up, we started to look for accommodation suitable for our family of four. The chosen apartment (Gardenia, Jardins do Golfe) looked lovely from the website photos and had received consistently positive customer reviews. The service we received from both Dawn and Marta at SandyBlue, throughout the booking process was also excellent. On arrival, the apartment certainly lived up to our expectations. It was clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The contents of the starter food pack were also really well thought out, which meant an immediate trip to the supermarket wasn't required. The kids (an eight and four year old) shared their own twin bedroom (with the welcome addition of a PlayStation 2 games console. A holiday first for us!). The master bedroom had a huge king size bed and direct access to the balcony. The main living area was comfortable and spacious with a large flat screen television (showing a number of English language channels) and the balcony had a basket containing beach toys and buckets and spades etc, which proved to be a really useful addition. The apartment itself is in a great location within the resort and provides the use of two pools, a children's play area and hammocks (on which the kids had great fun). Car hire is a definite as the resort is too large to easily walk around (especially with children in tow) and the extra freedom a car affords enabled us to easily visit the local towns, beaches, restaurants and shops as well as resolving the issue of airport transfers and supermarket shopping. We will definitely recommend Vale do Lobo and SandyBlue to our friends and family and hope to return again one day. Kind Regards Leigh
Had a such a great week we are already planning our return visit next year, thanks Sandy Blue
I’d be delighted to write a review, we certainly did have a great holiday, once again. Regards, Felicity
The apartment is fab, absolutely lovely! It's great to have the food essentials - yes, I do class wine as an essential- already here too, what a thoughtful touch. James is over the moon with the toys in the bedroom, once you hit your twenties you don't often get the chance to play with a toy gun and a wizard's hat and it's clearly an opportunity not to be missed! I haven't opened the beds yet but there's no reason to think they're not as spotless as the rest of the apartment. Even the much maligned wifi is speedy at the moment, so everything is great. Just need the sun to come out for me and a few low scoring rounds of golf for them and life will be perfect! Best wishes Shann
We had a really lovely and relaxing holiday, the apartment was perfect and we appreciated all the thoughtful touches like the welcome basket, milk, eggs and water in the fridge and toiletries. The pool and tennis right on site were great and we had a superb meal at Paixa next door. Thanks again
Many thanks for the reminder, we had a lovely time at jardin do golfe and will hopefully come back there next time we visit Portugal. Everything was perfect the apartment was spacious and really nice. Staff at sandy blue couldn't be better, many thanks especially to Dawn who was great. Also the taxi guy recommended was super. Thanks to all Kind regards Sinead
We have just returned from our first holiday to Vale do Lobo, and have had an absolutely fantastic time.The apartment was perfect for us - very clean, spacious and modern and in a really great location. The information pack that was in the apartment was brilliant and helped to make sure that we made the very most of our week there. Thank you also for your professionalism in helping us to arrange it all.We will definitely be returning and will certainly recommend SandyBlue to our friends. Kind regards,
The reservations team were very responsive and helpful, in general we were pleased with the property and we had the best holiday for a very long time and would recommend you. Hope to stay next year. Thanks.
Excellent complex. Always spotless. Apartment was pure luxury. All recenlty renovated and furnished to a very high standard. Loads of toys and games for the kids, even pool toys too! Every last detail to enjoy our holiday had been thought out. Pool towels that were provided were a fantastic touch and saved us on our luggage allowance, esp when travelling with a toddler! We didn't have a car but found the walk to the Praca was not a problem for us. Quite enjoyed looking at all the fabulous villas on the walk there and back. Used the snack bar on the complex too and found this to be lovely too and useful for the kids ice-creams! SandyBlue and her staff work so hard in order to make sure you have the best holiday and can't recommend her highly enough if thinking about travelling to this area of portugal. We have travelled extensively and have never come across such a fabulous team before. Fantastic!!
yes we arrived back home safe and sound after a lovely holiday, thank you so much. The apartment was great and thank you for organizing the “welcome gift” pack which indeed was very welcome. The location was lovely and quiet with the bus to the praca and barringtons each morning very useful. I did find though that you are restricted to praca for dining out each evening unless you have your own transport. We did try some other restaurants eg. Julias – but found the private taxis quiet expensive compared to regular taxis. Eg. Took a private taxi to aquapark – cost 18 with private taxi and 8 euro with regular taxi for return journey!! Anyway – this is out of your control but just a comment. Appreciate the discount for returning guests – would like to think we would have a look at some of your other properties for our next trip away.
We have had a lovely holiday and will come again with SandyBlue and we would need Barrington's Membership again. We have been coming to Vale do Lobo for 30 years + plus this apartment compares well to others. Many thanks.
Everything went very well, the apartment was great and we enjoyed Vale do Lobo a lot. My teenage daughter met with friends here and had a great time. I am quite sure that we will return at some point and will definitely contact you again. On a personal note, I just wanted to say to the Reservations Manager that you have been absolutely amazing in every aspect of our booking. You responded to my every query in a very timely fashion (even outside office hours) and you were a saviour when it came to booking our rental car. My only regret is that I didnt meet you face to face to thank you personnally. Be assured that I will have no hesitation to recommend you to any of my friends and familly. Thank you again.
