The location of this villa is brilliant, 10 minutes to the strip and 20 minutes (walk) to the old town. Loved the old town, so many narrow streets on different levels. Nice beach . The villa its self is well suited for our large family (12 Adults and 3 children).
We used the bbq well during the week. The pool was also used daily. Thank you Dale for all the help during the booking and transfer arrangements. Everything went smoothly.
It went on my first holiday aboard in June of 2015, it was safe to say I was pretty nervous but whenever I seen the photos of the villa couldn't believe I would be spending a week there! When we arrived it was like something from a film, the villa was just perfect. The villa has the best location as the strip it literally a 5 minute walk, you couldn't ask for better! I will be back for definite! Had just an amazing, unforgettable experience in that villa. Could not recommend more!
First let me say that this was not our first experience of renting a villa so we did have certain expectations which were certainly not realised here.It seemed to us that any cleaning had been perfunctory and not very through. The barbecue had a huge hole in it making it virtually unusable and the sand tray next to it was full of old cat mess - not a pleasant sight! We did take this up immediately with Mr. Cleminson who replaced the barbecue. Some of the facilities in the kitchen were quite frankly dirty - dining chairs were broken and in need of repair.The state of some of the bedrooms ( particularly the two on the lower floor) and bathrooms left a lot to be desired.
The villa is large and suitable for large family groups but does need a thorough clean and refurbishment It is worn and weary.
We have informed Mr. Cleminson ( with photographic evidence) of our observationx before writing this review. He tells me that he has acted on our concerns.
What a great villa to spend a holiday with the family (10 adults and 2 children). In addition, the level of service provided by Dale, from the moment I enquired about the villa, was excellent. No request was too much trouble and his response rate was very good. I would definitely use his services again. He arranged the airport/villa/airport transport for us and the drivers were very friendly, courteous and punctual. The villa itself was in a prime location and only a few minutes from a large supermarket, bars and restaurants. It was also only about a 10/15 minute walk to the Strip. The villa itself had 7 bedrooms each with a bathroom; there were additional toilets situated around the villa. The villa had a basement, on the same floor as an excellent swimming pool and sunbed area, with 3 bedrooms including a family room. It also had a great games room and bar equipped with a pool table, darts and table football. There were also fridges for the beer. The ground floor has the front door entrance, a very large lounge with TV, dining area and kitchen. The first floor has 4 bedrooms (one with a large safe and two with balconies) and provides access to a roof terrace (and more sunbeds) with a great view of the sorrounding area. I would definitely go back.

Villa was fantastic and more than adequate for such a large group of mixed aged friends and families. There was an abundance of space and plenty of seating for all 16 of us at dinner. The pool and the games room were used constantly, and the pool heating was a necessity at this time of year. The closeness of the supermarket was a bonus. Transfers were excellent. The weather was fab, we had a lovely time and love our annual Easter visit to Portugal!
We have just returned from an 8 night stay from 13 people with an age range of 7-78. The villa was amazing and Dale sorted all the extras out for us including transport to the attractions. The taxi drivers were lovely and one even stopped to buy us some local oranges. The front door was a little confusing at first but we got the hang of it. Dale and his staff really did make the holiday run smoothly. The neighbour gave us some plums too. Lovely people.
I will definitely return and will book through www.holidaysalgarve.com
We visited zoomarine, the aquashow water park and went on the dolphin boat trip. We didn't see any dolphins but the guys were lovely and the kids enjoyed the ride. The weather was very warm.
there is a supermarket close by and we went to Fat Cats as the kids loved it there. They have a pool for the kids to swim in whilst you watch from the terrace.
The only complaint I had was that we didn't stay longer; the time went so quickly.
