A fantastic holiday - just what we all needed.

  • 5 of 5

A great holiday was had by all.

From the moment we booked the house Anne has been a great host, keeping in touch, answering questions and ensuring everything was perfect for us!

The property ticked all the boxes for us as a family - a great pool area for relaxing , sunbathing and having fun in the water. Sky TV so my son and husband could indulge in watching Test Cricket . Perfect Wifi connection to keep my daughter and son in touch with friends . A beautiful view from the upper terrace where you could relax with a glass of something in the evenings. Perfect surroundings for a fun and relaxing family holiday.

2 bed town house - Dunas Douradas

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice, home away from home, town house with a good location. A few minutes walk to the very nice beach (saying hello to the turtles on the way, stopping for a cocktail in the Beach Club on the way home). The descriptions on the web site are accurate. The house was clean, tidy and very, very comfortable. The best bits; eating breakfast on the roof terrace, lunch or dinner in the outside shaded dining area, my husband cooking dinner on the bbq, my 9 year old daughter having great fun in the pool, my 19 year old daughter topping up her tan in one of the many loungers, a cold glass (or more) of wine or beer on the terrace, relaxing, laughing and family time in a very comfortable environment. The worst bits; having to leave to come home again. Good location if you have a car, we visited restaurants in Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Villamoura. You don't need to have a car though, local restaurants all worth a visit include; The Beach Club, Xenia's (which is at the reception area), Maria's, Julia's and Izzy restaurants which are all a stroll along the beach. The only thing that could have made this holiday any better was to have a covered over car port or shaded parking area. The temperatures were up in the 30'sC most days so getting into the car was never that pleasant, thank goodness for air conditioning. All in all, my family and I would recommend this accommodation and location. We had a fabulous, relaxing holiday.
