Luxury Townhouse Villa



Updated: 08-Oct-2016
Villa in Ponta Grande Resort, near Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal - 10 mins walk to Sao Rafael beach

This luxury town house is situated on a 4 star resort within 10 mins walk of the award winning sandy Sao Rafael beach. There are many other blue flag beaches close by and some excellent coastal walks with stunning scenery. Plenty of local beach bars serving snacks and drinks as well as meals including locally-caught fish and shellfish. There is a restaurant on site serving a variety of excellent Portuguese and English meals at good prices. The nearest town - Albufeira - is a 10 min drive away and can also be reached by local buses which run frequently from the nearby bus stop. Restaurants and shops are a few mins walk/drive away depending on your food preference or shopping requirements. The nearest supermarket is 5 mins walk although there also is a mini-market on site.

fantastic villa and a lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

We went as a family of 4. Dad, 2 children and grandad. The villa was great. Loads of space and a great balcony which got the sun early morning until mid to late afternoon. The pool side was great too. No hustle or bustle for a sunbed no matter what time of day.

The restaurant was great too. Nice staff and good food.

The play park was a little disappointing but it did not stop us all having a great holiday.

We did not venture too far as the kids wanted to swim in pool every day. However we did go to the old town and the slide and splash. I'd recommend a visit to both.

Weather was fantastic and just what we wanted.

Would recommend if you want a chilled out holiday!

Spacious well equipped property enjoying one of the better places in resort

  • 4 of 5

This villa is situated between the Albufeira marina (15 minute walk) and Gale (30 minute walk away). Obviously with a car these are quickly accessible.

On the actual Ponta Grande site the villa enjoys one of the best locations with the terrace overlooking the pool.

The villa is spacious, with two a/c bedrooms upstairs, a main bathroom and a shower/toilet downstairs. The kitchen like the rest of the villa is well equipped with the only thing missing a washing machine. However, there is an on site laundry available (€7 tokens). The WiFi worked fine from the poolside also. I would point out both bedrooms had 2 single beds in.

There is a small on site shop, a reasonable sized one 5 minutes down the road and a choice of a Spar 2 kms and a proper supermarket in Gale, where it is easy enough to get a taxi.

There are a selection of beaches within walking distance, Sao Rafael being closest but look out for a little gem between that one and Coelha.(called Cala). Once you find the secret stairs you will not be disappointed.

The owner was responsive to a couple of minor things that happened and all in all I could not fault the place or our holiday and would not hesitate to staying here again.

Owner's Response: So pleased Steve and his family enjoyed their stay. There was a problem with the bathroom light, which Steve told us about and we had our local agent go in to fix it for him the next day. We always like to hear from our guests if there are any issues with the house so that they can be corrected as soon as possible. We are also very happy to hear they had a good holiday. Please feel free to tell all your friends about our house too.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my husband and three children stayed here for 9 nights in July. The location of the villa is super with views over the pool. The resort Ponta Grande is fabulous with a great in-house restaurant. The pool is fabulous with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. We had a few issues when we were there however:

Cleaning and linen change was never done (supposed to be done weekly)

TV did not work for the duration of our stay- the management company (not the resort itself as they had nothing to do with it) came out to look at it, agreed it was not working, said they would escalate and get back to us, and never did.

Location was great thoug, and surrounding beaches magnificent.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was a misunderstanding on behalf of our agents which resulted in the cleaning not being scheduled. This has been resolved and will not happen again. In September a new satellite TV package will be installed by a Portuguese company to provide English and foreign language TV channels. This has to be done when there are no guests as a new satellite dish needs to be installed. We have apologised to the guest for the issues she raised with us.
