“Not as it looks in the photos”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We booked this villa as the pictures made it look like it was in good condition and this combined with the central location were a perfect combination.

I'm disappointed to say that the pictures are not reflective of the villas actual state and it is tired and worn with a number of issues. Before I list the negatives I must emphasise that Pedro the owner was a great host and was accommodating but I do feel that he should have been more upfront about the villa or at the very least offered a discount knowing that the villa had been oversold to us - in contrast we had stayed 10 minutes down the road the previous year for a fraction of the price in a brand new villa.

When we arrived Pedro did apologise for a number of issues (including a shower door hanging off making it unusable) but despite this we found numerous other things wrong after he left.

To start with the kitchen wasn't cleaned properly and there was food left in the cupboards and we had to clean the fridge and floor ourselves! The blinds in the conservatory didn't work and some were hanging off their brackets, there was also a table and chairs set in the conservatory with a total of 8 chairs, 4 of which were broken but hidden with cushions (my youngest feel through one of these chairs on day 1!) The outdoor sofa that you can see in the photo's is completely unusable and you can't sit it on it at all, not to mention that we found discarded contraceptive packets under the seat so even if it had been usable we wouldn't have sat on it! There are also a number of the light fixtures which were broken (and the outside lights didn't work at all)

We also had to ask Pedro to come and clean the pool for us on day 2 as it was covered in tree debris, it only filters at certain times of the day so each day you wake up you would have to wait for the filter to come on before you could use it.

Downstairs there is 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and an ensuite.......the bathroom fan did not work and we had some unexpected visitors in the form of cockroaches coming in through the un-working vent which meant we didn't use this bathroom at all so it was a total waste of money.

The villa is just off the main strip and in a very central location, unfortunately that meant on many occasions we were kept awake by party goers - some of who were sick right outside the villa which we then had to deal with the next morning. A great location if you want the night life but if not I would advise you stay further out of town.

We did have some other issues (the legs of one the beds fell off) but Pedro was very quick to respond to us and for that I am grateful (unfortunately he couldn't help with the cockroach issue though)

Lastly although the villa states it has air-conditioning this is only in the lounge and so the rooms downstairs are very hot and stuffy.

This villa needs some serious TLC. If your looking for a villa to spend a week with friends and you're under the age of 25 then this villa is fine for you but if you're looking for a family villa I wouldn't recommend this.

Management Response

Hello richiejs
Thank you for your nice comment. It was full of justice :)
Forgot to mention that the villa has a toilet NEW neither is on the site .. so the new suite, and that all requested was promptly resolved (including the noise of the works).
The TV has the biggest and best possible package in Portugal, as well as the internet.
The kitchen is FULLY equipped. How many detergents and consumables .. No comment on.
However, my intention is to please and despite having always been available .. saddens me silence in the presence and now writing injustice ..
Really people are all VERY diferente
But thanks anyway.
It was a pleasure to meet you.
Pedro

House very well located and with all conditions.
The exterior of the house is superb and it has very good areas.
Very sunny, inserted in a condominium with security.

Owner very sympathetic and available.
