Guestbook comments from the manager

'Dear Alfred, Happy New Year to you. We had a wonderful time the first two days were a bit bad but after that the sun shone it was great the children just loved the pool, my eldest daughter learnt to swim in the time we were there. Alex was great and thank you for the Christmas tree we would love to come back in the summer months. Once again thank you' Tracy Price

'Just to let you know that we had a fantastic vacation at Villa Casa Hana. It is a beautiful villa with everything we needed. What does Casa Hana availability look like for end of May to start of June in 2008?' Best Regards, Sean.

'Dear Alfred, many thanks for the use of Villa Casa Hana it was a fantastic place and we all had an excellent holiday in Portugal. Carvoeiro is definitely on my list again in the future as is Casa Hana if the party size is big enough again. There was some minor problems with the electric and hot water failing but these was swiftly rectified by Villa Management Da Roos.'

Casa Hana as it really is.

  • 3 of 5

Our recent stay at this villa as part of a large family group was exactly as we had anticipated; the kids spent long hours splashing about in the pool, whilst most of the adults relaxed on the sun loungers poolside.

Most evenings were spent enjoying BBQ cooked food eaten on the terrace, the evenings being so warm that we never needed to go indoors until bedtime.

The air conditioning kept the bedrooms at a comfortable temperature for sleeping. Alex, the maid did tidy the rooms daily except for weekends, and she changed the towels, but the sheets didn’t get changed once. She is very nice but somewhat too friendly, as she will spend too much time talking.

Our en-suite shower room was small, the shower cubicle equally so, and the shower was not much more than a trickle. The bathrooms are tired and in need of refurbishment.

As far as the kitchen is concerned, the fridge/freezer is too small for a large group and took overnight to re-freeze the ice cube trays. There is enough space for a much larger fridge. The oven doesn’t get hot enough for anything other than plate warming, as it has no regulo. A new oven is needed.

Externally, the pool and garden are maintained beautifully, with both the gardener and pool maintenance guy on site almost every other day – excellent.

The pool, however, is badly let down by the generally poor state of the equipment provided i.e. There are not enough sunbeds and at least one of those that are available is broken. The umbrellas are in such a sorry condition, and dumped in a corner of the patio, that we didn’t even try to put any of them up. Most of them appear to be held together with rust and tape, similarly with the umbrella stands. If we had wanted to use the pool cover it would have been impossible, as this was lying broken at the end of the pool.

The Wi-Fi suffers from a very limited range, and would not work poolside and failed completely for 3 days, before we could convince the agent to get it fixed.

The villa is approached from the main road by a very uneven, rutted track some 200 metres in length. It is particularly difficult for vehicles to negotiate without bottoming out, and as it is in total darkness at nighttime, - very dangerous on foot. It is put to shame by the neighbouring property, where the owner has provided a neatly paved, lit drive, although, to be fair, it is much shorter.

Finally, my security deposit was not returned until nearly 6 weeks after we left, and then only after several email and telephone re

Owner's Response: Other than the issue concerning the Internet failure, it is unfortunate that the other issues raised in this 'Review' were not raised with Corinna our House Keeper at the time. Casa Hana in located in a rural location and the path to which is referred is owned by the local council. The range of the internet is no less than in the UK. The Swimming Pool is almost 80 Metres from the Villa. Our Maid Alex is such a nice person. Bed Linen and Towels are changed every week and more frequently if requested.

Carvoeiro is a typical Portuguese fishing village which despite its growth as a holiday centre, has retained its traditional charm. The village beaches are sandy and clean and busy during the peak holiday periods. Within a 10 minute drive there are a wide choice of sandy coves along this beautiful stretch of coastline and the interesting rock formations at Algar Seco should not be missed. There is a wide selection of shops, restaurants and bars and a covered market.


For direct flight information please contact owner for weblink addresses.


The villa is just 35 minute drive along the N22 from Faro Airport. Typical Taxi prices are Taxi 1-4 People £51. Taxi 5-8 People £73. Taxi prices are for one way journeys.

Further Details:

Miles of gorgeous, golden, sandy beaches, calm clear waters and bays interspersed with rugged cliffs and enchanting grottoes; the Algarve is amongst the top European holiday destinations. The South of Portugal was the last place to gain independence from the Moors in 1292, conquered by the King Dom Afonso III and even today traces of the Moorish presence are visible in the unique terraces, chimneys and whitewashed villas. Despite the obvious influence of tourism, a short drive inland reveals the true Algarve where life goes on much as it has for many centuries. This brightly coloured region with orange groves, almond trees in blossom and fragrant pines is also the most verdant and fertile. Sports enthusiasts will find ideal conditions and top class facilities; the golf courses and tennis establishments have a highly prized reputation. Above all, the Algarve is a children's haven; several exciting water parks, surfing in Praia da Luz, horse riding near Lagos and, of course, plenty of chicken and chips! Whatever your preference; a secluded hideaway in the hills, a converted cottage in a traditional fishing village or a magnificent mansion in a sophisticated resort, we are certain that you will find your personal paradise in the Algarve.
