Estrela do Vau
A great family holiday option, Estrela do Vau Apartments have just the right balance of ingredients for happy holidays in the sun. Quietly located just 600m from the sandy beach at Praia do Vau, the property's facilities are ideally suited to families and couples who enjoy relaxation in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Estrela do Vau Apartments have a fine swimming pool with children's section, sun terraces, poolside bar, restaurant, bar, minimarket, mini golf, tennis courts and 24 hour reception. In high season, there is a kiddies club "Little Star Club" and there is occasional evening entertainment in the bar for adults. Estrela do Vau also offers a wellness centre (adult only and payable locally) with indoor pool, hair salon, gym and jacuzzi. Free WiFi is available in the lobby area. Praia do Vau itself is a nice laid back resort, but the brighter lights of nearby Praia da Rocha (about 2 klms away) which has a better selection of bars and restaurants, are accessible by public bus which operates on a regular basis.

Peter says: " Estrela do Vau Apartments are well recommended for enjoyable holidays for both couples and families. The property is particularly suitable if you like a relaxed and friendly ambience and without being too far removed from a lot of commercial activity, yet not in the hub of a busy resort. Friendly staff and comfortable apartments are the order of the day."
