“Villa Tamarindo, perfect location”
Reviewed 31 January 2018 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed at Villa Tamarindo last September for 10 nights and were so blown away with it that we have only just booked another 10 nights for this coming June. We were a group of four adults and two children (ages 4 and 1). The villa has five large bedrooms of which we used four, a large living and indoor dining area with attached covered large veranda which overlooks the pool. There is also large games/living room downstairs. First and foremost, this place is kept exceptionally clean, is really well maintained in terms of the building/furnishings/gardens/pool, and it is very quiet and secure. It is child friendly whereby access to the pool can be locked off from both entrances, and the stairs are protected at ground level with gates. A decent wooden cot was made available for our use. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is air conditioning in all bedrooms and living areas. There is a laundry room just off the poolside which is really well equipped with washer and dryer and off course, there is a block-built large BBQ alongside the kitchen side of the villa. In all seriousness, you'd be doing well to find something you didn't like about this place. For us it was perfect. It is ideal for a family holiday. We took turns eating out and eating in (BBQ) on alternate nights or if the children were tired or acting up, we'd just grab a takeaway on the way back from the town/beach and eat at home (the Italian restaurant at the bottom of the road that the villa is on, and on the left hand corner {has a little water feature out front - maps is calling it "Pizzeria San Martinilo"} does lovely food and their takeaway pizza an pasta is the stuff of legend, in size and quality!)
The pool is quite large considering (maybe 8m x 4m), receives the sun for most of the day (as does the sun bathing garden alongside the pool) and is really well maintained (the management company sent their guy every morning to clean the pool, top it up with water, water the garden and plants and generally keep the outdoors part of the villa ship-shape - he never interrupted us at all though). The pool has the option to be heated too, at a small additional cost to power the heater.
Location wise, the villa is a five or six minute stroll to the largest supermarket in Olhos and the same to a selection of restaurants. Beyond that, its another five or six minutes to the centre of town, which is the beach-front and another selection of restaurants and one or two bars. I say town, but really, Olhos d'Agua is a small, quiet, fishing village. It is downhill towards the sea, naturally enough and obviously you have to tackle the uphill return journey but for a few extra minutes walk, there is a gentler way of getting home.
There is a beautiful beach just off the centre of town and also one each side of Olhos, both easily accessible (search for Falesia Beach and Maria Luisa Beach).
As a final point, the lady who looks after the booking and meets you there, Anne, is very helpful and really couldn't do more to ensure you enjoy your stay. She offers to arrange airport pickup and returns, gives you the low-down on things to do, places to get groceries (there are more than one), bus routes, nearby towns...etc. We only needed to call Anne once and that was to arrange a taxi for us in to Albufeira, which she did no problem. Nothing is a problem for this lady and it's obvious that her aim is to ensure you enjoy your stay. That's how I felt anyway so kudos to you Anne, and thank you!

“The location is amazing - the restaurants & shops on the doorstep! This is a great family-friendly Villa”
Reviewed 15 January 2018 for a stay in July 2017

The Villa is perfectly located off the main road in a nice quiet area but close enough to shops and restaurants without the need of transport. The Villa is perfect for families with older and young kids, lots of things to do from ping pong to reading a nice book and also has a very good internet connection. The pool is just the right size for lots of fun, the place has everything you need to relax and let the days pass like a dream.
