In most municipalities of the Algarve region, including ours, there is a mandatory curfew at 23h00.

As part of the services and in order to save you time and privacy, VILA VITA Parc now provides its guests exclusively with Covid19 testing for travelling purposes (PRC and antigen), in order to return to your country, directly at the resort. We recommend you book your slot before arrival by contacting customerservice@vilavitaparc.com. You may also book it directly upon arrival through the Front Desk, subject to availability.

To ensure your and our safety, VILA VITA Parc has been carrying out tests on a regular basis for the front line staff (staff in contact with our guests) and on a random basis for the rest of the personnel.

The above may be revised every seven days. Kindly check any updates at the time of booking.
