Nice villa in need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

Lots of positives about this villa. Great location, near but not too near Albufeira. Good facilities on site with spacious rooms, BBQ and pool.

Unfortunately, like a previous review mentioned, there were a few issues though. The pool has a number of tiles missing and two people(including one of the kids) cut their foot as a result. Some of the furniture is in a poor state of repair and we had avoid using it.

Having stayed in numerous villas, I was really disappointed at the lack of welcome. There was nothing left for us on arrival. As a minimum I'd expect a manual with key information for the property but this was not present (we were told an agent would come over but they never arrived). This meant we never were able to make of all the promised features. Also, at every other villa we'd ever stayed at, there was some basic rations left (milk, bread , etc) but nothing here.

Generally lots of individually minor maintenance issues were noted (splinters from pool table, broken sinks in ensuite, light bulbs needing replacement, TVs with no plugs, etc). There was also a poor standard of cleaning.

Overall this is a lovely villa but needs a bit of TLC to make the best of it.

Owner's Response: The Pool is being retiled this winter which will eliminate the missing tiles which unfortunately are a consiquence of guest "picking" them off. The maid service is twice a week and other than this review the cleanliness has never been mentioned, other than to compliment . The garden furniture has all been replaced again after the damage received this season. Welcome packs are available on request and are payable locally on arrival depending on what you require, we are not a hotel and do not supply food and drink but are very happy to assist if asked

Unsatisfied Customer

Firstly initial contact with the owner was impressive and communication was excellent. Getting the breakage deposit back was quite the opposite. On my return I emailed the owner as I had not received my deposit back as advised in the original email. My requests for the deposit to be refunded were ignored for a few weeks and it was only when I threatened the owner with a collection agency that he finally responded. I now have my deposit back but this took 4 weeks. The Villa itself looks lovely on the pictures however there were quite a few defects I noticed;

- The swimming pool had missing tiles so there were various parts which were sharp and potentially could cut yourself on.

- Garden Furniture Broken

- Pool cue's had no tips on them

- Table tennis net held together with blue tack

- Spa Bath did not work

- Parasols Broken

- Washing Line Broken

- Curtain Pole In upstairs bedroom was hanging off the wall

The whole villa could do with a tidy up and a good paint. I would not rate this Villa as as five star it is more like a 2 star.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately it is impossible to please some people, I have no idea what these guests were expecting or indeed were they got the 5 star rating - the villa is exceptionally well kept and looked after with no expense spared in making it a real home from home. Please see all previous reviews. The villa was painted top to bottom inside and out this April so I am very surprised at this comment. The breakage deposit is returned once our agents confirm that there have been no issues, unfortunately there were many issues with these guests but we have returned the deposit in full and accepted that some people just treat your property with contempt - thankfully this is not the usual. The only broken items we are aware of are what these guests broke or abused, previous guests and later guests have had no issues at all.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Well where do I start on arrival the villa was clean, had a supply of beach towels, towels also so that was a huge help.

The kitchen is huge and has everything a family could need even down to a baby bottle steriliser.

The beds are comfotable, the rooms have aircon also indeed it was needed as it was in its 30s while we visited.

The owner Gary helped with everything needed, the pool we ended up having heated as the kids where a little cold although I loved the water to cool off as it was so hot.

Gary had this sorted for us you can organise this before you leave for your holidays.

Overall the distance to the old town and strip is a 35 minuite walk so I would advise car rental as the Taxis are always busy in peak season.

Try Panda car rental as the company we went with were pricey.

The house is stunning and perfect for the home away from home, I would defenitely visit again.

Mr and Mrs benson thank you for a pleasant and enjoyfull stay.
