A major factor in Quinta do Lago’s enduring popularity is that even though this tranquil resort is non- gated it is the safest in the region. Responsibility for this lies with Vigiquinta; a highly organized security service providing 24 hour resort surveillance, 365 days per year, headed for many years by Hermes Alberto. His experienced, well trained team liaises with owners to provide discreet surveillance and alarm monitoring.
In 1982 the property owners of Quinta do Lago formed an association which they called Aproquila; a non-profit making organization whose aim was, and still is to this day, to protect the environment of Quinta and maintain the high standards of the resort.
1996 was the year that Infraquinta was formed; the company responsible for the high level maintenance of all the infrastructure ie public areas, green areas, roads, lighting, refuse collection and gardens.
Within the resort there is also a small post office and a bank.
