“Excellent villa, in an excellent location, fantastic for families!”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here with our 3 children for 2 weeks in July 16, the villa was perfect for what we were looking for. The pool was just right for our 3 children to enjoy all day, steps down into the pool meant our 3 year old could sit and play in the water, the deepens was not to deep that the older ones were scared to jump in. We were able to sit on the loungers in full view of the villa and pool and actually relax for once. Inside the villa is spacious and well kept, we only used the downstairs of the villa which was perfect, we kept the shutters shut all day which meant we only put the air con on for a small amount of time in the evening. The kitchen is well equipped, making meals in very easy, the only thing missing was a potato masher which we went and brought. We cooked every night bar 2, was so nice to sit in the garden and eat our dinner as a family. The living area is great as the children could be playing inside whilst we had full view of the patio doors outside. The TV was a little hit and miss, sometimes the channels worked other times they didn't, but that didn't affect our stay, and as Teressa told me Portugal is about 10 years behind the UK. Gramacho as a resort is just beautiful, the security on the front gate made me feel at ease, not that there was anything to worry about but just nice knowing they were there. My husband and children played a round of golf which they thoroughly enjoyed. The location of the villa on the resort is in a quiet, private spot, only a few minute walk to the club house, the nearest supermarket is just by the entrance of the golf resort, it stocked some great bits, including Robinsons squash! Jumbo supermarket is a 5 minute drive away and is fabulous for all the usual shopping essentials plus more! Best supermarket we have found abroad! You do need a car but that wasn't a problem for us. There are some beautiful places to be seen around the local area, definitely worth venturing out. Cavarieo is just beautiful, the board walk amazing, the little train is worth a ride so you can see what the area has to offer. All the little beaches are just beautiful, and walking in the caves a brilliant adventure! Portimao is about 15 minutes away and beautiful for an evening venture. We loved it so much we have booked to go back to the area next year, only in a bigger villa so friends can come! Terresa was brilliant, responding to all our questions within hours. Would 100% recommend this place. Thanks for letting us stay!

“An outstanding villa that is in an ideal location”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Thankyou for such a great holiday. This villa was of a very high quality and located in the very secure grounds of Gramacho Golf course. You get the peace and quiet of your own pool which is a great size and my 1 & 5 year old boys loved the garden to play sports in. There is an excellent clubhouse for food and drinks with a play area for young children. The local splash & slide is 5 mins away with plenty of good beaches only 5 mins drive away.

“'it does exactly what it says on the tin'”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 for a stay in May 2012
person found this review helpful

Casa Amarillis is a beautifully refurbished modern and very well equipped villa in an ideal quiet 'sun trap' setting. It caters for all age groups - our grandchildren aged 6 & 8 had a marvellous time. The T.V. has all satellite channels plus a DVD player. The owners supply lots of local information and maps. All rooms downstairs are on the same level and the lay-out of the villa made our stay extremely enjoyable from the moment we arrived and 'threw open' the big patio doors onto the pool area, which gets the sun all day. The magnificent manicured private garden surrounding the villa creates an ambience of relaxation and tranquility - ideal for lazy BBQ's following a swim or a round of golf. The Club House is just a few minutes walk away and has excellent food, friendly staff and a play-area for children. The Staff at Reception are extremely helpful and can offer advice including babysitting etc. A stroll to the Mini Market takes just five minutes. Knowing there was 24hour security greatly contributed to us having a wonderful relaxing holiday.
