“Villa 148 Alma Verde”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

We have stayed at Villa 148 three years in a row; feels like home! Kept in immaculate condition and each year there are small improvements to make it even more comfortable.

Great place to relax and a good base to explore the many intersting places around the Western Algarve including Burgua (Beach Bar a favourite), Praia de Luz, Lagos and many more.

Looking forward to going back again this year. Children still love it (13 and 15) which is one of the reasons we are going back.

The villa was the perfect base from which to enjoy our holiday. The location was best described as tranquil with easy access to the surrounding beaches, golf courses and picturesque towns and villages. We've been to this part of Portugal on many occasions but this was the best, we will be back soon.

Room Tip: Suggest you hire a car as there is so much to see and dozens of beaches to visit.

We had a wonderful stay here in August this year. The villa is gorgeous and perfect for two families sharing, as two seperate wings so everyone has their own area. There is a lovely mezzanine area with DVDs and computer games which meant the kids could escape from the sun when they needed. The swimming pool area was really nicely landscaped, with brand new pool furniture and a BBQ, which we used regularly.

The children loved being able to walk to the playground and having a bit of inependence. We planned to play tennis on the courts, but were having too relaxing a stay to have used them.

We found a great local supermarket and some beautiful beaches with beach bars in abundance. One night we ventured into nearby Lagos which was great fun for a night out. We also were told by the management at Alma Verde, about a brilliant boat hire company to charter a water skiing boat from, which was great fun.

We will definitely be rebooking for next year.

I have just spent one night in Villa 108 on business here in the western algarve and I cannot fault it. We arrived late and in the dark to find the lights on, villa warm, bottle of wine in the fridge and the place absolutely spotless. I love the resort and it is well looked after. I also met the support team who genuinely cannot do enough to help. I will certainly look to come back here with my whole family on holiday, not least for the tennis and the spa. Thank you Alma Verde.

We stayed at Villa 114 for 3 weeks during September 2012. The property was superb in all possible aspects. However the management team in charge of reservations and services spoilt the entire impression with their attitude and unprofessionalism. Our pool was cleaned just once (1 day before our departure) and the dirty water had its' negative side-effects on the kids' skin;

internet costs 2 Eur/hour and works at a snail-speed, so don't waste your money for nothing and go to an office of any mobile-phone operator to buy an internet stick;

The announced free WIFI at the reception also works with occasional black-outs. Also be aware, that you might be asked to stop using the WIFI after an hour (!!), I was forgiven, though, and allowed to leave my laptop running for the entire day.

SPA facility is actually one of the villas, which serves as a temporary location for all treatments.

2 weeks after my departure I was contacted by the staff and asked to pay for the pool heating a balance of 420 Eur. They hinted my credit card details were still at their hands to charge me for the service. Either poor memory or fraudulence made them forget that I declined to have the pool heating back in July 2012, which was approved by the same person who later demanded the money.

Other minor issues like "no hot water" for 4 straight evenings,tribes of ants living in our bed-room (photo attached) and "cool air" system, which circulates no air what so ever, making the house extremely hot during daytime - are too insignificant to describe. It's a good thing we travelled in September and had cool nights, which helped the villa to "lose temperature".

Portugal and the villa were great. Just be ready to ignore the extras who suffer due to financial crisis.

We stayed at Villa 142 for 3 weeks in July 2012.

Very good, modern villa on a fairly new estate. Building on this estate has "stopped completely" due to the current financial crisis, though will double in size once normality resumes. There are around 100 villas now. Problem is that there are no facilities there yet, apart from tennis. The promised WiFi system was not working for the whole of the 3 weeks we stayed there.

Location is good, about 2/3 miles from Burgau.

Do not trust the "Cool Air" system. There is no air conditioning on site as this is a "green" development. We went in July, queried why the cool air system was not working, and were advised that it was, and was working to full capacity !! We slept a few nights by the pool as inside the villa was unbearably hot at night.

Facilities lacked a bit - nice space on the roof, but this space was wasted as there were no chairs or tables up there and none of the lights worked (six lights / no bulbs working)!! Four sunbeds by the pool, for six people !! Glass table by the pool which was certainly not health & safety compliant!! Problems with the drains whilst we were there!!

Could have been much better, £4,100 for 3 weeks was expensive for what you get.

Room Tip: Check levels of furniture / fittings ie 6 guests, 6 chairs etc.
