We have just returned from a wonderful stay here. It was our first family holiday with our baby. The staff, location and amenities are all excellent. The staff were so helpful and professional and made such a big effort with our baby, he just loved meeting them all. The shuttle bus goes regularly to Vilamoura but we often walked in and took a taxi home, it is a nice walk and taxis are inexpensive.
The apartment itself was really spacious and immaculate with every facility you could need. There was lots of room at the pool when we stayed and plenty of loungers etc.
Only two issues we found a little challenging-there was no lift to access the main hotel from the apartment...so you either had to leave the resort and walk 5 minutes down to road to get there...or else my husband usually carried the stroller down the connecting steps (approx 12 steps I would say). Not accessible at all.
Also we ate at the hotel buffet one night and ordered pizza from the bar another night-both were terrible I would honestly prefer to eat McDonalds instead of that food.
However with this in mind I would still return and look forward to more trips to As Cascatas.More
