Quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an amazing stay at Casa Rosana. My party which consisted of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys had a wonderful time relaxing at this villa. It is very spacious and the pool area is excellent.

The villa had everything you would need and the use of beach towels was a bonus.

We hired a car which I would recommend if you want to explore the surrounding areas, although we did use the taxi service for nights out a few times.

I would highly recommend this villa if your looking for a peaceful/quiet location.

Our Visit to Casa Rosana

  • 4 of 5

6 adults and 4 children visited for 1 week.

No complaints, only observations.

Description was accurate and we were all very pleased with what we found. Although grass was somewhat threadbare. Grass watering system was switched off.

Property was clean and maintained. Pool was clean and surrounding area was in good condition.

Games and videos were in plentiful supply for the children in the evening.

Yes we would definitely recommend the property to friends and relatives. Our third visit to the Algarve and this was on a par with the other villa's we have rented.

Aquapark was excellent. Amancil go-cart track was very poor, wouldn't go again. Beach where Issy's bar was full of pompous idiots and definitely a place to miss for normal people. The Lemon Tree in Amancil was a very good local restaurant. Don't be put off by the exterior. Lamb shank is to die for. Albafura is a great place to visit for nic nacs, Sardines and water sports.

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at casa rosana 21 years ago when we came to celebrate my mums 50th birthday, our party then consisted of my parents my sister and brother in law,my husband, myself and our twin sons who were six and on their first holiday abroad, we all had a great time and always intended on going back,so that's what we did this year only this time with our three sons,daughter in law and two granddaughters aged four and nine months,it was so lovely to go back.casa rosana is very family friendly,the layout of the villa is great as the pool is visible from most of the rooms making it easy to keep an eye on young children,our four year old granddaughter absolutely loved it,she was in the pool nearly the whole time and cried the morning we had to go home,the villa is extremely comfy with plenty of room and a good size garden,we would recommend a hire car although we did walk to the local shops in almancil most days it's about a fifteen minute walk and had a meal in local restaurant about five minute walk,we enjoyed this holiday so much that we have already booked again for next year.
