Villa Welwitshia
Reviewed 2 September 2012

We stayed at Villa Welwitshia for three nights during August 2012. Despite them having lost our reservation, they quickly resolved the issue, found us a room and our stay was pleasant.

The rooms were well sized, clean and had suitable amenities (fridge/air-con/sofa). The pool was also a great facility to have, although the walk to the main beach in Carvoeiro was less than 10-minutes which meant we could make use of some time by the pool and the beach. Breakfast was more than adequate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Algarve.

If I returned to this area, i would choose this hotel for location, price and more of a homely feel when compared to the major hotel resorts.

We stayed here a couple of years ago for a short break after our wedding. We had such a lovely week and loved this place. We had trouble finding it again on the internet as don't think they are with the big holiday companies but now we have found it we will be booking our stay again for next year. Very relaxing, quiet part of the town, no disturbance whatsoever, close to the town - only reason for the 4 for location is that there is quite a hill going up to it. Staff lovely. Can't wait to visit again.

This was the second time we had stayed with Jose & Amanda, this time we drove down from the UK, and rolled up unannounced! Jose only had 1 room left, but by the time we had a drink & a snack the room was ready for us. Very friendly and helpful staff, nice and clean, good size pool which never seems too busy. Only downside for some is that it is situated at the top of a steep hill, but don't let this put you off. Can't wait to return to this fantastic village, and hopefully to the same hotel again.

Jose and Maria Amanda are like extended family nothing is too much trouble and you are are part of their family during your stay. Fantastic Rooms and Dining/Bar area. Admittitdly it is a bit of a steep hill upto the property, depending which way you go, but it's well worth it. Our 1st trip there, our little-un was in a buggy so it was a bit traumatic the first couple of nights but we soon got into the groove and let our teenage daughter push the buggy up the hill while we sauntered up. Joking aside, the pool area is safe, secure and very clean, Maria Amanda provides fantastic fresh snacks and lunch's and full bar service is also available, which is better value than in town, which is cheap even if you large it up.
Don't know what else to say apart from it's a fantastic place to stay, hence we've been going twice a year for the last four years.
Enjoy.
