The best part of Vila Alba was the pool - really clean - no drama with towels as no one seemed to be ignorant and reserve beds. It was also in a beautiful setting. Pool bar and snacks also good. I would say they are very short staffed. Reception staff were a bit grumpy and unhelpful -sent us in wrong... More

We arrived at noon, but could not get into apartment till 2pm. Went back just before 2pm and was totally ignored by a reception staff for 10 minutes. Said apartment ready apart from no sheets on beds yet, we said that is fine. At 5.45pm I went to reception to ask when we would get the sheets and told they... More

We are an easygoing family and this is my first negative review, ever. By all means avoid this inhospitable and filthy hotel with a strong odor of mold in all rooms, worst in the bathroom! We recently had a most unpleasant stay there and the hotel manager really could not care less! The beds are the cheapest, most uncomfortable beds... More

As the old saying goes "If I knew then what I know now" this sums up our feelings on our stay. We ( two adults, two kids) booked what we though was a 10 night family stay at Cheerfulway Vila Alba, Montechero. Having stayed there 7 years ago we thought we were returning to a known quantity. The intervening years... More

I visited this place last week.... We tried to check in at 13,30, but they said they were finishing cleaning the apartment. At 14,30 we tried again, and they said they were waiting for the bed linen-apart from that, all was ready. (checkin time advertised was 14,00). We said it was ok for us, and we may go to the... More

We have stayed here 4 times over the last few years and it has been getting slowly worse. There are many good points to this complex such as the lovely clean pool area and snack bar. The staff in the pool bar, are brilliant. So friendly and helpfull. The drinks and snacks are reasonably priced and its a really nice... More

The actual apartment was spacious & clean but the reception staff were possibly the most unhelpful people I have ever met! We arrived about 9pm & had to wander around in the dark to find our accommodation - with a 3 year & me 6 months pregnant! When we tried to find out about grabbing a quick bite to eat... More

In October with the magnificent Algarve sun, we took a good vacation here. The apartment has all the facilities and conditions. There is also a terrace overlooking the pool. Excellent cleaning service.

Apartment was ok size wise, but too far from old town, up a steep hill. Only enough hot water for two showers per day. Bathroom needed up grading. Was ok for 1 week, but wouldn't stay in this resort or accomodation again.
