Guestbook comments from the manager

Kate was easy to communicate with and get all the information from without any hassle, the villa we stayed in itself was much better than we anticipated and really did give us somewhere great to stay, local to shops and the beach. The information pack we had on arrival had enough things to do and recommendations of the areas for us to stay busy for the week! Would definitely use again if going to Portugal!

Lovely villa but issues with management

  • 2 of 5

The villa is lovely, with fabulous views, is spacious and a great size for 14 people.

However, we had issues from when we arrived, as there was no key. We made a phone call and the response was 'I'm in a restaurant and I've just ordered my food, will be about half an hour, but I'll try and sort it'. 10 minutes later after not hearing anything we rang back to be told the key would be with us any minute. 10 minutes later we made a further call to be told it was on its way. Eventually after a further call we went to a cafe, and received a text when the key was available. A couple of us went to the villa to find it a mess and the cleaners there, so the rest stayed at the cafe. We were told there had been some confusion with the cleaners taking the key (why, they have their own) thinking it only needed cleaning the next day. We were promised some form of compensation for the delays in getting in but no compensation was ever received.

Other issues ...

Before we booked we asked if all the rooms had air con, and the answer was yes. It turns out that one of the bedrooms doesn't have air con. Also, the air con turns off after 30 minutes of no movement, so you wake in the night when the room has warmed up. This information was not provided. This is not ideal at the hottest time of the year.

Also, two of the air con units were broken, but only one was fixed.

There were only 11 sun beds despite the villa sleeping 14.

The outside space at the front, where the pool is, is small, and the table only sits 8.

The tiles on the steps leading to the pool are dangerous, and we had three people fall on them. We resorted to putting towels on the steps to stop anymore slips.

The outdoor space at the back is overgrown, the bbq is unusable and there is no table and chairs, which is a shame, and it stinks of cat wee.

The bedding doesn't fit properly (seems like double sheets to fit a king size bed).

Whilst the pool is 'cleaned' that consists of someone coming in for 5 minutes to throw a jug of powdered chlorine in the deep end, which took about a day to dissolve, and give a quick brush to the edge of the pool. There was a film across the top of the water. May only be a coincidence but we had 3 out of 7 kids on antibiotics and all but 1 on ear drops. We have stayed at villas before and seen how pools are properly cleaned.

We had to make a few calls over the two weeks, but never got a call back.

Most of the issues would be easy to fix and make this a fantastic villa.
