Located just a short distance away from one of Algarve’s most popular beaches – the sandy Praia Do Vau – the Estrela do Vau hotel is a perfect option for a beach holiday in gorgeous Portugal. Boasting 4-star services in addition to that great location, this one is a winner among both families and couples alike.

The apartments on offer are all air-conditioned, bright and spacious, creating the perfect ambiance needed for a truly soothing holiday. Each of the guestrooms is equipped with a satellite TV and a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, and tea/coffee maker. The hotel’s restaurant serves delicious local and international dishes, and hosts live music performances during the summer months, while the poolside bar provides refreshing beverages all through the day. Speaking of the pool, there are two of them and they are both outdoors – need we say more! As it is surrounding two pools, the sun terrace is quite spacious, too, making for the ideal place to work on than tan of yours.

The hotel’s facilities also include a modern gym, mini-market, tennis courts and a summer kids’ club. Bicycle rental can also be arranged on site so that you can easily explore the gorgeous surrounding area. However, you will not need a bike to get to that famous beach – the Praia Do Vau is only 650 metres away, so you and your loved ones will be there in no time – sand between your toes, sun on your faces, the sparkling blue waters inviting you to have a dip. This is Algarve, so naturally there is a golf course at your doorsteps – on this occasion this is the Alto Golf Course! Stunning location, 4-star services and spacious accommodation – the Estrela do Vau is one of your best options while staying in this vibrant, sunny area of Portugal.
