Guestbook comments from the owner

'Having been to the Algarve for many years, we decided to try the Silver Coast and stayed at the Steene’s Villa for a week’s family holiday. Praia D’el Rey is a hidden treasure! The surrounding area is very pretty and the beaches are just beautiful with an amazing Golf Course. With time and care taken regarding the interior design, the Steene’s Villa is a joy to be in - very spacious and extremely comfortable with four good size bedrooms including three en-suites, another bathroom, a large open-plan meals and living area, both leading out to the spacious pool area. Lazing by the heated pool every day is easy as the location is quiet and peaceful. With the beach only a few minutes drive away, this is all you could possibly desire for a great family holiday. There are lots of places of interest and many lovely restaurants to enjoy nearby. The Spa at the 5* Marriott Hotel cannot go without a mention, offering an amazing selection of treatments, perfect to indulge in if you wish!'

Villa With Private Heated Pool, 15 Mins Walk To The Beach
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

Excellent Villa

  • 4 of 5

Excellent villa with 1st class amenties that my extended family and I made full use of. The owner provided easy communication and comprehensive information on the villa and location facilities as well as directions to everywhere. We filled our time with barbques, swimming, table tennis competions, golf, beach games and walks.

Good fun had by all.

The only reason it missed the 5* is that the location could do with alternative bars and restraunts within walkable distance operated outside the Marriot umbrella where the service did leave something to be desired.

We will consider returning in the not too distant future.

Owner's Response: Hi Eileen and David Many thanks for your positive review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay and that the villa was to the high standard that you expected. It is always a balance finding somewhere that is not too commercialised and yet having a location that provides some tranquility away from the stresses of everyday life! On that point it does mean being being open to trying places outside of the resort, which is why I have my comprehensive list of other restaurants to try and I note from David's email that you embraced this fully. I do hope that you visit the villa again sometime soon. It will shortly be undergoing some updates to the lounge area with new sofas and colour scheme which will enhance it even more asthetically. Thanks for being such fantastic guests and for taking the time to make your review. Kindest regards Alison

The beach is approx 15 minutes walk from the villa, minutes by car. The rugged coastline is spectacular with vast stretches of golden sand, ideal for sunbathing, walking and exploring. Many more beautiful beaches are only a short drive away. Details are provided in a booklet at the villa. Para-sailing, scuba diving, surfing and wind-surfing are also available further along the coastline. There is also a lagoon a short drive away where children can play safely in the shallow waters.


The nearest airport is Lisbon, which is about a 50 minute drive from the villa. The route is very easy and the roads are excellent. Detailed directions to the villa will be provided on booking. Car hire is advisable.


Lisbon is less than an hour away - lots of sights to see and great shopping at the Colombo Shopping Centre (all under one roof), fabulous restaurants and nightlife. Also, the Oceanarium is located in the Expo98 site on the banks of the Tagus. Obidos (only 15 min drive) is a medieval walled town with fascinating alleys, which have become home to high-class handicraft and gift shops, as well as bars and some excellent restaurants. There are details of many more places to visit at the villa.

Further Details:

There is a local food shop 1 min walk from the villa, a mini supermarket about 5 minutes drive and the main well stocked supermarkets are about 20 minutes drive. There is also a fabulous English speaking butcher in the next village (5 minutes drive) for the BBQ enthusiasts! There is a cash point at the Clubhouse and one in the local village, as well in as the main supermarkets. You can eat within the resort in the 5* Marriott's a la carte restaurant, family restaurant, pool-side restaurant (during the day), as well as in the numerous bar areas - tapas and delicious bar snacks. The Clubhouse also has an excellent restaurant and also serves meals in the more informal sports lounge area. Outside the resort, there are an abundance of restaurants in nearby villages (5 mins drive) and a little further afield in nearby Obidos and Peniche (both about 15 mins drive away). Details of these are given in a booklet at the villa along with directions. If you prefer not to drive, we have a very reliable taxi service who speak good English and can arrange drop off and pick up at a specified time. They also have a number of vehicles to accommodate various numbers of people. The great thing is that children are very welcome in Portugal, making eating out as a family easy and most enjoyable for all concerned. So all that remains is to do just that - enjoy!
