Best Villa in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival at this beautiful Villa the BuyAlgarve rep was waiting for us.

He went through everything we needed to know about the villa's fantastic facilities and what the surrounding area had to offer.

The Villa is very private and is not overlooked there are several places to relax not just around the pool, There are 2 beautiful sun roofs with seating and beautiful views of the sea.

The Villa has a Jacuzzi, which was fantastic to relax in.

Exactly opposite the villa there is a really good restaurant which serves all different kinds of fine food, this also has beautiful views of the sea.

There are several more restaurant within walking distance.

The beach which is just 5 minutes walk and is an award winning Blue Flag beach.

If you fancy an explore of Albufeira town it is only around 8 euros in a Taxi.

I hope to get back to this Villa as soon as I can.

Very modern villa in perfect location, but noisy at night

  • 3 of 5

The villa was very modern but noisy at night due to nearby hotel complex playing live music in a marquee on several nights - normally finishing around midnight but on one occasion, until 2 in the morning.

Was slightly surprised that, although the towels were changed 3 times during our 2 week stay, the villa was not cleaned and no cleaning products were available for our use.

Owner's Response: Dear Kenneth, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Regarding the issue raised about the cleaning, we are very surprised with the observation as we always had positive feed-backs about the cleaning and the team that does it. About this subject you have all the information needed on the booking form sent to you. For stays of more than a week there is always a light cleaning (at the end of each week when changing the towels and linen). However the tasks of the cleaning lady do not include cleaning the kitchen, kitchen utensils and equipment as it is written on the booking form. Concerning the cleaning products, those need, in fact, to be bought by the guests. This is a self-catered property so those products should be acquired by the guests accordingly with their preference. About the noise of the music from the nearby hotel, we had never received a comment about it. It is the first time this subject is mentioned. We are very surprised about this observation. We believe it was a one time event. We at BuyAlgarveProperties’ Group (AlgarveVacation,Ltd & Properties4You, Lda) go the extra mile to make each and every holiday a special memorable experience. We truly hope to welcome you again in this, or in any of the other properties we have in our vast Portfolio.

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful villa, fantastic location but the organisation by the vendor was poor. We were not told about the 4pm check-in time so we waited from 9am and when we did finally get in it hadn't been cleaned. There was sorry plates food laundry rubbish everywhere. The cleaners arrived at 5pm and left at 7pm. I would have rated it 10/10 if it were not for the poor service and let downs by Algarve villas. Won't be booking again. Also the pool furniture was a bit unsafe, fell over during a bit of wind and could have caused serious harm to someone.

Owner's Response: Dear Tom, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Regarding the issue raised about the check-in, all our guests have that information on the booking form where can be read that the villa is booked from four pm (04h00) on arrival day, until ten am (10h00) on departure day. As reported by the local representatives, there was in fact, an incident with the time that the cleaning ended. The cleaning team left the property at 05:15 pm. We were very surprised with the observation concerning your arrival at the villa as we always had positive feed-back about the cleaning and the team that does it. After consulting the local representatives and the cleaning company, we confirmed that on that day one of the cleaning teams suffered an accident and Villa Praia's cleaning service was delayed. This situation was a very exceptional and unique event. Regarding the pool furniture, we believe you want to mention the big sun umbrellas. During every welcome meeting, the local representatives inform all our guests, in all our properties, that the sun umbrellas should be closed by the guests if there is strong winds. This is to avoid accidents and damages. All guests that stayed in this property have given us fantastic feedback and reviews. We at BuyAlgarveProperties’ Group (AlgarveVacation,Ltd & Properties4You, Lda) go the extra mile to make each and every holiday a special memorable experience. We truly hope to welcome you again in this, or in any of the other properties we have in our vast Portfolio.
