Superbly placed villa with great facilities

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well placed between Old Town Albufeira & The Strip. The beach was only a few minutes walk & a couple of shops & bars were also nearby. The villa was lovely & clean & had everything we needed, There were 4 bathrooms so fantastic for large groups. We had a slight problem with one of the showers & it was mended the same day - fantastic service. The air conditioning was very efficient & quiet but the villa was so cool inside, we didn't need it very often despite the temperature outside. The pool was great & there were plenty of sun loungers. Would recommend to families & large groups.
