“Lovely Villa”
Reviewed 10 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Villa Gardenia is beautiful. We were 2 families traveling from different parts of the U.K. 4 kids, 4 adults. The layout is great, there wasn't anytime that we felt on top of each other, there's plenty of space. The views are amazing. We all enjoyed the pool, bit cold but fine once we were in. Kitchen had everything we needed. The BBQ was used about 4 times and was fine. The Villa was clean. Washing machine and washing line was a great bonus! A car is recommended but the taxi services were great, never waited long. However a lot of taxis found it hard taking us home as they didn't know the address we was given.
A few down points were our wifi signal wasn't good, only seemed to work in the living room. A few TV's didn't work either even after matenence guy had a look, wasn't a big deal as we don't watch a lot of TV when away but would have been handy for an hour a day for kids in the evening. We would have loved a radio/stereo as love listening to music all day, would be a great bonus.
Communication with Sandra at the beginning was good but lost of contact during stay as we didn't receive any messages from her and I'm sure if her messages had reached me all of these things would have been addressed as she is a lovely lady and really will do anything to make your stay great. She was genuinely disappointed at the end that none of her texts came through to me.
I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone, you really won't be disappointed. We loved sitting out on the terrace in the evening, was very peaceful.
Hope everyone else enjoys it as much as we did.

“Soooo Relaxing !”

Just returned from Villa Gardenia and would echo the previous reviewers comments. We were 2 familys of 4 with older teen children. The villa is wonderfully appointed. The pool is great being a large size. The villa also has a table tennis table a couple of TV rooms to keep everyone happy. Internet was a good speed (it coped with a couple teens streaming youtube and an internet radio) just. The cleaners were a wonderful bunch of older ladies who don't speak alot of English and i even caught the pool man one or 2 mornings.

The location is generally quiet, a normal neighborhood. There a a couple of dogs in the surrounding villas which can get abit excited and start a chorus. The villa across the road and adjacent are rented so you get pot luck as to who ends up in there. In our 1 st week it was a younger group in both so they had a habit of upping the music volume in the afternoon and then rocking up in taxis after clubbing at dawn.

It is a little out of town and a taxi between 5-7 euro each way. The Marina is half an hours walk. Getting a taxi can be an issue as nobody answers the phone. i assume thats an issue of high season.

Sandra the property manager is a consummate professional. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She even gave us a lift to the supermarket!

“Peaceful villa just out of town”

Well what a fantastic villa! We travelled as 7 people, including an 18 month old, and it suited everybody perfectly. We were all in a secure, safe plot, yet had the room so as not invade each other's personal space. The beds & bedrooms were wonderful - the air con being a god send! It's realistically too far to walk into Albufeira, and a taxi is only 5 euros and 5 minutes each way - ordering one in English was easy from the villa, and it always arrived within about 5 minutes. Our preferred method was to go left out of the villa, down the hill to a bar on the main road about 10 minutes walk, have a beer and they order the taxi for you.

We couldn't get over how quiet the area was in the evenings sat on the balcony. To be so close to a bustling town, yet able to escape to a tranquil suburb is a huge plus. The Sunday night we were there was exceptionally quiet, which was fantastic.
