“Ideal villa but let down in lots of ways...”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

people found this review helpful

We booked this gorgeous villa for a hen party of 16. Patrick was amazing when helping me book and pay, he was really quick to reply to emails; even when he was away travelling, he passed my queries on to Jim who was really helpful too...communication at this point was excellent.
When we first arrived everyone loved the villa. The bedrooms are really big and the bathrooms looked lovely and clean. The outside looks so grand too, especially with the big pool and plenty of sun beds. The cages on the windows and doors were a bit depressing but apparently they were necessary. Miguel met us a few hours after our arrival to show us round the villa and that was the only useful contact I had with him. Unfortunately this was where the nice things about the villa ended.
The cages on the patio doors wouldn't unlock and it felt like we was in a prison. Having to use the front door when we all wanted to sit around the pool was annoying because if the front door closed on us, we would have been locked out as it can't be opened from outside...it was just something else we had to think about. We called Miguel repeatedly get assistance. It was over 24hours later that someone turned up to unlock the shutters. Unfortunately it was our last day that they done them and they then couldn't be locked back up, so we couldn't then leave the villa all together as it wouldn't have been secure...especially as we had been burgled on our last night!! Everyone was extremely nervous in the area. This villa has no security at all! Miguel warned us when he met us on the first day so we always made sure everything was really secure. However during the night, the cage on a downstairs window was pulled out and used as a ladder to climb onto the balcony and then the doors were forced open. Anyone would think that if management know how dangerous the area is, they would have security lighting or CCTV...but nope. Again i repeatedly tried to contact Miguel to inform him of the break in and that we had gone to the police, but he still never returned my call. Apparently he organised for the police to attend the villa as he heard my voicemail but it felt like he did not want to speak to me directly.
On to the more minor details...the oven is shockingly bad, so cooking for 16 people was very difficult...especially as Miguel didn't follow through with his promise of bringing us coal for the BBQ and again repeatedly ignored my phone calls.
Secondly, there was a leak from the downstairs bathroom sink which meant the floor was always flooded and disgustingly dirty.
The shower pressure was ridiculously low, especially if more than one was being used...with 16 females this is inevitably going to happen! The ensuite shower/bath downstairs at the end of the corridor had a split so most of the water ran down the outside of the hose and often the pressure was so low that it would cut out completely.
The kitchen tap was hanging off.
The swimming pool was freezing cold; only 2 people managed to get in for a few minutes before their legs went numb.
The unkept road leading to the villa from the main road was difficult to walk on, especially with heels on, and because it was so dark.
Finally when we was ready to leave the villa, Miguel knew the time, he didn't come to see us before we left. As we couldn't lock any of the cages we had to leave the villa unsecured. It would have been nice to be able to pass on our issues with the villa to the person who is suppose to be managing this property, but unfortunately this couldn't happen.
I'm sorry, but paying almost £900 for 4 nights for an unsafe villa, managed by an uncontactable person, is extremely disappointing!

“Fantastic Villa ! Fantasic Holiday !”

There were 15 of us stayed here and to sum it up we didnt want to leave. The Villa is very spaceous and there was plenty room for us all. We organised transfers with Jim and everything went smoothly. Jim was very helpful with his information and sorted eveything out for us. The villa was clean and had everything we needed. The blow ups in the pool were a bonus too ! The Villa is within walking distance to the nightlife and the strip. It seems that a hotel has been built between the villa and the town which adds another 10-15 mins on your journey, but it wasnt a problem in the warm Portuguese air. There are some fantastric places to eat on your way to the Strip - catering for everyone. On our last night we (all 15 of us) ate at Ranias. We had a fantastic meal and they even threw 3 bottles of free wine in for us. Very nicely priced too! Our Pool was lovely and there are plenty sunbeds for everyone. Top Holiday had by all !

This villa is simply amazing. I went for my hen doo and there were 22 of us although because the villa is so big we didn't feel on top of eah other at all. The two 1st floor bedrooms are stunning with a massive terrace and pool view. Everyone had a bed and there are plenty of showers and toilets. The villa feels secure with a fob for the gate and theres a safe. The pool is lovely although quite deep. When we arrived there was only 17 sunbeds but after a quick text along came another 5 so we all had somewhere to chill around the pool. Location is excellent 5 mins walk to supermarket and food and 10 min walk to the strip. Old town approx 5-10 mins in taxi. There was supposed to be a cd player but the box was empty so we used a bluetooth speaker, wasn't very loud but did the trick, wifi was also spot on which Miguel gave us for free due to a small mix up with the taxi's. I would recommmend this vila in a heartbeat my hen doo was perfect. xxx

“Absolutely amazing week away with friends, ticked all the boxes.”

We had a week away for my hen do. We wanted relaxing days and had the choice of the private pool or the beach a short walk away. All the amenities you need are less than 5 minutes away and some fantastic restaurants mean a relaxing evening is just round the corner. 10 minutes walk and your on the strip with some fantastic bars, live bands and a great atmosphere. Also the old town is worth a visit but is a taxi drive. I would highly recommend this villa for groups who want the right mix of relaxation and dancing with great value meals and drinks.
The service we received both booking the apartment and once in Portugal was second to none.
We'll be back :-)
Particular thanks to Jim, Patrick and Miguel.

“Perfect for our stag do.”

The apartment was perfect for the stag do. There were 13 of us and there was ample space in the villa, as well as poolside. Extremely clean and all the staff were extremely helpful, even came out to us at 2am when we couldn't figure out how to use the electric gate!!

Location wise it couldn't be better. 10 minute walk from the strip and a short taxi ride to the old town. It's in a quiet location but not once did we feel like we were interrupting the neighbours, there's plenty of space between villas.

Would highly recommend.
