Vale da Riberia Residences is a hidden holiday gem that gives you the flexibility and space of self-catering apartments with the benefit of fantastic shared facilities. Perfect for families with young children, you'll have plenty of space for everyone as well as fun activities and playmates around the pool and playground.
Opened in 2018, the property has a village like ambience. The spacious apartment style 'villas' are modern and immaculate with incredible, far-reaching views.
Anthony Family, October 2018
We had an amazing stay at Vale da Ribeira Residences. The villa was great and very spacious. All of the toddler kit was fantastic, great condition and kept our little one happy and safe.
Allen-Burt Family, August 2018
Really enjoyed our time at Ribeira, the villa’s and site was immaculate and felt luxurious. Staff were so helpful and friendly it really made the difference. Was very quiet when we went I’m guessing because it’s the first year, do wonder how the pool space will work when it’s busier. Had a list for children’s activities but didn’t really see anything going on although maybe that is because it was quiet. All in all a fab place would definitely go again.
Goodey Family, October 2018
Perfectly easy, carefree holiday. Everything we needed, nothing we didn't. The best family time.
Williams Family, August 2018
We loved every moment of our holiday in this lovely part of the world. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. A really friendly and family orientated resort. However I would recommend researching the area and go to places to visit as you are quite remote. I would also recommend doing a shop at the supermarket in Lagos. Whilst the on site shop is fantastic there are understandably limited food choices both at the shop and at the pool bar. I must reiterate again how brilliant the staff were and how gorgeous the residences were.
Sutton Family, August 2018
We’ve just returned from 2 weeks at Vale Da Ribeira and we enjoyed it so much we’ve already booked to go back next year. The location is great; it is very peaceful and off the beaten track yet it’s within easy reach of numerous beach resorts such as Alvor and Luz as well as the bigger towns of Portimao and Lagos. The waterparks are within half an hour’s drive and it’s an easy drive from Faro airport (under an hour). We found the apartments themselves had everything we needed. They were very spacious and spotlessly clean. They were really well-equipped with everything we needed including a dishwasher and washing machine. The terrace was lovely and gave great views across the countryside towards the sea and the city lights of Lagos. The staff at Vale da Ribeira could not have been more helpful and welcoming and the activities they offered were great. The children were kept entertained during the day with mini-disco, junior archery and bowls and a swimming pool obstacle course. The pool and adjoining café were fabulous with a lovely location and great views. The children’s pool is right next to the adult pool as is the playground. The only improvement we would make would be to have more food choices in the pool bar but we understand this might be something that’s lined up for next year. Other than that the reception area has a grocery shop and café which are very useful for the occasional pastry treat or essential groceries when you arrive. So all in all we had a great holiday and can’t wait to go back next year!
Traxson Family, July 2018
A great family friendly resort with a lovely pool and well equipped apartments/ villas. Activities going on too if you want to take part in archery, baby disco, Zumba or aqua fit amongst others! Driving distance to some nice beaches and Lagos centre.
McMillen Family, July 2018
Having seen Tots to Travel on Facebook, and heard from our neighbours that they had booked and it sounded great, I took the plunge, called and booked a villa in Portugal on a complex that was just refurbished. From the moment we arrived, we felt so at home. I can honestly say I have not met such a lovely team and been so looked after as we were in Vale da Ribeira Residences in the Algarve. Our two bedroom villa was spacious, light, spotless and the only issue we had with our fridge was dealt with quickly and did not impact our trip. The wrap around balcony was amazing, the view spectacular and the entire experience just fabulous. I would not hesitate in going back! The Vale da Ribeira is pretty remote and you need a car, you cannot walk anywhere. There is a small "shop" in the reception which was useful - mostly for the freshly cooked croissants every morning! It was not cheap, but it was useful. The pool was lovely, not deep so pretty good for the kids. Nice area. Pool bar not really used as we had beers and cold wine in our fridge! I have no complaints at all - we had a fabulous 2 weeks in Portugal and Vale da Ribeira was the ideal base from which to explore!!! LOVED IT.
Family stayed July 2018
The whole apartment was clean, fresh and spacious and could not fault it in any way. The pool was the perfect place to relax as well as being particularly child friendly with its graduated steps leading in to it and two shallower areas for our toddler to play. It was also surprisingly never too busy despite the number of apartments on site. Staff were helpful and friendly.
