We have stayed at this villa twice previously and can't fault it or the service that Santomero rentals provide.
The location is very good only being a short walk into Guia, which we have to say is one of the friendliest places to visit.
We visited as a family for the first week in July. Dinora the contact for this villa was really helpful and organised transfers to and from Faro airport as we travelled in two parties. Also sorted tickets for Zoomarine etc. Couldn't be more helpful. Car hire essential to get around but this Villa could not be more comfortable. Everything you need is there. Pool is brilliant and it's a beautiful interior. A really enjoyable week.
We had a really good stay at Casa Rute. The Villa is very well equipped we didn't want for anything. The poolside has lots of sunbeds and chairs so you don't have to move anything. There are plastic cups and plates to use poolside so there is no risk of breakages. We did enquire if the pool was heatable but I'm glad it isn't as it was not required. The pool was serviced whilst we were there and maintained to a good standard. There was a previous comment about the poolside looking tired, yes it isn't new but it is still serviceable. Dinora from the management company was really helpful and friendly. She came to visit on the second day to check all was well and was there anything needed. The welcome pack was great and we left our unused charcoal for the next family. The Villa is in a residential area and not all tourist. Some of the other villas have dogs which can be set off by a cat strutting by. Would be happy to rebook.
Just returned today from 2 weeks at Casa Rute. We are a family of 4 with two young children and the villa was a lovely place to stay. It is located in Quinta dos Alamos which was slightly further out from Guia than we had anticipated but only takes around 15 minutes to walk once you find the shortcuts!
Only thing I would say is that the poolside is very tired and could do with some work as there are a lot of cracked tiles and some were lifting. Also broken parasols could do with replacing. However this did not detract us from enjoying spending time at the villa.
