“Family holiday”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a beautiful villa...8 of us here 3 of whom are over from South Africa...everybody loves the area and the villa...the people are so friendly. The villa is spacious, clean and has everything we need. It's also right on the edge of a golf course. Lots of places to visit and lots of lovely restaurants, the ice cream is amazing. We will definitely be back.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This Villa is in an ideal place "The Old Village Vilamoura" so calm and quite. Stayed May 2017, 4 adults + twins aged nearly 3. You will never want to stay anywhere else in Portugal. Restaurants in Village are fantastic extremely family friendly. The Village Square is 5 mins walk at the most, Marina about 25 mins walk
but if you don't feel like the walk the land train goes every 1/2 hour until 18.20pm
The kids loved it (thought it was Thomas The Tank Engine). I cant praise this place enough. SO SO RELAXING. Well Jell If you are going. Recommend Princess Gardens for food. Casa Toja I love you, Vilamoura love you too.
Andy (the owner) thanks for helping us have a remarkable holiday.

“Lovely but...”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Stayed with my family in September. The villa is beautiful and ideally located loved the bathrooms and the living area. The area is very upscale and the villa backs onto a golf course which is good. There were a few negatives mainly that the pool is freezing cold - could do with some heating - and the beds are very very hard. We were having a lovely stay but on our last day we had an issue with the next door neighbour who took issue with us playing music (not loud just through a phone and we had a toddler with us so we weren't exactly party animals) at around 2pm and he responded to this by banging on a piece of sheet metal with a hammer continually for 30 minutes - he told us he has this constructed especially for when this villa is rented as he doesn't like noise. So if you are happy to be outside in silence then this villa is perfect but if not then you may wish to consider staying elsewhere unless you enjoy the sound of sheet metal being hammered. I did contact the owner to tell him about this and got no response - I can't imagine this is the first time this has happened as the welcome pack mentions the neighbours not liking noise!

Thank you for your review and lovely comments about our villa, we always appreciate feedback good and bad.
We would like to respond to some of the comments you have left in order of them being raised.
The Pool is cold yes, as many pools in the Algarve heated by the sun only, normally people do get used to the cold although I can accept everybody's interpretation of cold differs. My wife will swim in the pool in October but I won't! Saying that as we are getting more and more booking early and late we are investigating the cost of heating the pool for 2018, this will then be available at extra charge for those that require a heated pool.
The beds differ this later this year all but the downstairs are being replaced, unfortunately we cannot guarantee the mattresses we choose will suit everybody. We swap rooms when we stay depending on who's with us and only find one mattress to be 'hard' but as I say its preference.
Regarding noise, the villa is in a predominatly residential area and when we started renting it out some 3 + years ago we asked renters to be respectful of the neighbour who lives there, hence the note in the welcome pack in the villa. However earlier this year it seems some renters did upset him by having children playing loud music and late at night in the garden, which is why he now seems to object to almost any music, hopefully we can sort this out with him when we get over this week. I am aware you contacted me on the 16th Sept at 16:32 and I responded via Holiday Lettings at 16:47. I also passed the information on to the management company asking for the local police to call out unfortunately you vacated the following day so they didnt actually see you.
I will send you copies to your personal email as we do pride ourselves in trying to respond as quickly as possible.
Kind regards

“Family holiday”
Reviewed 14 December 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Booked this villa for my 60th birthday. We were a party of 8 ; myself my 3 children and spouses and my 2 year old grandson. The villa is beautiful very spacious very well equipped nice view of the golf course at the back of the villa. Nice pool with plenty of sunbeds. Not particularly baby friendly as there a few steps around the pool and inside the villa but my grandson managed them. Nice quiet location and a few restaurants within walking distance and we got uber taxis to and from the marina very cheap and accomodated all of us! Loved our stay and would recommend the villa. Would advise though not to play any music outside during the day as the next door neighbour overreacts to it.

Hi and thanks for your review of our villa. We agree its not totally baby friendly as we do have steps in and outside of the villa, we are looking to purchase a stair gate this year but that won't help with the large step between the dining room and the lounge area only the stairs. We do supply a playpen for the garden as yes we do have steps outside which without ruining the appearance is very difficult to make it 100% child friendly.
Regarding our neighbour, it does seem that since early this year when we had an issue with a young family/children he seem to object to any music in the garden, this clearly is not acceptable and we have involved the police in this and we are hoping to resolve this when we are out this week.
Once again many thanks for your review.

Our daughter and son -inlaw had booked the villa for 2 weeks and we went out for the second week What a beautiful villa it's huge, clean, modern and immaculate - everything was taken care of. there were books to read and videos to watch also plenty of info about
bars and eating places
The inside was fabulous the ensuites lovely and modern and the views over the golf course from the balconies. lovely pool no need to book sunbeds as in hotels
There is a games room too great which was great fun marina was abt 25 mins but all downhill they had hired a car so we could explore as we are both in our 70's and my wife's mobility is not good I would recommend car hire for that purpose but if you don't want to explore it is not needed. we love Villamoura our last visit was to a hotel and we liked this villa it is so spacious and it is well maintained we would love to come back

“Beautiful villa”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a beautiful villa it's huge, clean, modern and immaculate from the towels changed twice through our stay the bed linen being changed to the matches and the coals for the barbecue and to the candles on the decking at night - everything was taken care of. The inside was fabulous the ensuites lovely and modern and the views over the golf course from the balconies. There is a games room too great fun for kids however we didn't use it. Walk to the marina was abt 25 mins but all downhill and taxi back €5 ! We hired a car so we could explore a bit which I would recommend but if you don't want to explore it is not needed. Loved villamoura and loved this villa would definitely go again !
