“A relaxing half term week”
Reviewed November 16, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Lots to be positive about but it's a very good and not quite an excellent.

Sunray Village is a modern part built complex just outside Almancil, so easy to get to beaches and golf courses and a couple of miles from the nearest large supermarket. All the villas are exceptionally well appointed - we stayed in a triplex (you need to be prepared for stairs) which had a small pool, hot tub, cinema room, a/c, play area, wifi, UK TV, BBQ, extensive kitchen, security system and loads of space. All top notch stuff.

Apparently built like a lot of developments at the hight of the boom and so never really completed. Once you are inside you would never know but it is a real shame that the development isn't complete and there is zero atmosphere. We stayed in half term week and only the villa next to us was occupied, all the others were bare and unsold which did make you feel a little isolated.

I agree with previous comments but would have one item that takes a star off. The local support was very poor. We finally met the local contact who just about removed his phone from his ear to give us a rapid 5 min tour and then left never to be seen again. The mid week clean and towel change that was promised never materialised and we had to ask to use the washing machine in the basement - with kids this was a must have. There was also a £250 deposit to be paid electronically before we went and with no inventory or check out procedure (leave the keys in the bowl) you felt very vulnerable to 'something' being found that would be docked off your money.

Saying that the owner Chris was very supportive and helpful and always on the end of the email even if his local team were not.

Thank you for your comments. I would like to make the point that there is only one block of villas that have not been finished yet, this however does not impact on the two completed developments. We have three sets of neighbours who live there full time and several others who, like ourselves, are frequent visitors. Unfortunately, there are some unsold villas which have been purchased by a investment company.
I take on board your comments regarding our local support which of course I will be addressing.

“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Have just returned from a two week family holiday in Portugal where we stayed at Sunray Villa in Almancil. The villa itself is simply stunning being a three bedroom/three bathroom property decorated and fitted out to the highest standards possible. We stayed the first two weeks in August and the weather was very hot. The basement of Sunray contains a home cinema which we found extremely useful in keeping the children away from the peak midday temperatures. Later in the evening when the temperature cooled a bit it was also useful in keeping the children entertained whilst we relaxed with a well earned glass of wine in the hot tub on the balcony leading off from the master bedroom! The location of Sunray Villa is superb. It is just on the fringe of Almancil and is therefore a really quiet and peaceful location. However, it is also in an extremely central location to just about everything you need on a holiday. We hired a car and I reckon the villa is a 10/15 minute drive from Faro Airport, the gorgeous beaches at Ancao and Quinta de Lago, the golf courses at Quinta, Vale de Lobo and Vila Sol, a top quality supermarket and any number of lovely and varied restaurants. We had a wonderful holiday at Sunray and would unreservedly recommend Sunray Villa if thinking of a holiday in that area.
