Vilalara Thalassa Resort

Been there once, 

dreaming of coming back.

It's been a few years ago that we visited this ocean side resort, but we have been wanting to go back ever since. The resort is overlooking a beautiful private beach with plenty of sunbeds and parasols. The grounds and gardens are lush and beautiful with three excellent swimming pools , one of which is about 30m long.

 

What made us feel at home for 3 days was definitely the staff. Every one of the staff members was very helpful and very friendly. The breakfast and restaurants (especially the one near the pool overlooking the ocean) are excellent and we highly recommend having a look at their extensive wine selection, with a great emphasis on local Portuguese wines. 

For us it was the first time in a resort, and to ne honest, it did not feel like a resort. More like a seaside hotel, just with a few more services. Like driving us from the parking to the reception in a golf cart.
