Lovely, peaceful and very comfortable stay!
Beautiful place to stay..! Our villa was on 2 floors, had 2 bedrooms, both with ensuite facilities, full kitchen and large living/dining room - all were very spacious! The Residences are 7km from Lagos and 12 km from Portimao, so you probably need a car - we did, so no problem! I read a review that said the satnav didnt get you there. This is rubbish - put in Vale Da Ribiera residences (leave out Macdonalds) and the directions are perfect...! The pool and kids play area are lovely and peaceful and views from the Residences are beautiful! I’ve read a review on here that is very critical of this place - these people must be very hard to please! This is quality - it only opened mid-May - and everything is in pristine condition!! Great value for money and super accommodation!

Good 6.0
GPS will not get you there! We had to ask locals for help, which was very hard since we do not speak Portuguese! If you do not have a car, do not book here! It's in the middle of nowhere!! The pool is very small for the number of villas on the property, and it gets crazy packed by early morning by the same guests with their hundred screaming kids. Our villa was clean and nice, but surprisingly we did have issues. The coffee machine that we had did not work. We had to microwave water and purchase instant coffee. The shower heads are designed to be handheld or mounted like a regular shower head. The pic I provided is similar to what our villa had. However, the one in the master bathroom did not face downwards. The spray would only face upwards! So we had the option of holding it while we showered or having it spray the ceiling! It was the most annoying and inconvenient thing ever!! We stayed at the Amendoeira Golf Resort - Apartments and Villas prior to arriving to Macdonald Vale da Ribeira Residences, and my family agreed that Amendoeira was WAY nicer and less expensive. I will say that the staff was very welcoming and helpful, and the villa was very clean, spacious, and quite pretty. But if you're wanting more than just a place to sleep and watch TV, then I recommend finding somewhere else to stay at!

Exceptional Villas in Beautiful Surroundings
Brand new villas with fully equipped kitchens. Beautiful surroundings away from it all. Nature sounds all around and not many guests around the pool area made our stay really relaxing. Excellent balcony from the living area upstairs providing espectacular views of the valley . Great grassed garden area outside both main bedrooms below. Enormous beds. The pool area was quiet and we enjoyed the infinity pool.Definitely need a car to explore the area as there is nothing close by apart from the small pleasant shop in the resort. Very clean and comfortable with good WiFi and air conditioning in every room. Staff courteous and willing to help you have a wonderful stay. Couldn’t fault it. We had dinner in a local restaurant down the valley very popular with locals and reasonably priced called O Caseiro with outside dining area.

Exceeded expectations.
This resort was outstanding! The amenities, its proximity to all the sites we wanted to visit, I would definitely recommend this location to anyone travelling with family and or children as a getaway or as a calm base to visit other nearby locations. The team was extremely helpful. Loved it.
