Our stay at Quinta Oceane was everything we hoped it would be. The house has everything you could possibly need for a week of fun in the sun. We all had an amazing time and really did not want to come home! The location is quiet and within a comfortable walk to the beach and a gorgeous ice cream shop. Loved the outdoor kitchen/bbq area at the house, didn't feel the need to go out for dinner every night as we loved bbq's with fish bought from the fish market in Lagos that morning! That is an experience worth trying! The best thing about the holiday was not hearing any complaints from the kids, they were far too busy in the pool and playing table tennis, they had a whole week without watching TV! I would definitely recommend this villa and hope to visit again soon!
Fantastic villa for large family holiday.
Bright open spacious living areas and good sized bedrooms although most of the holiday was spent in the outside area. Pool is amazing, could not persuade the kids to get out of it. Also many other activities including table tennis, badminton and table football which kept everyone entertained. Did not need to travel far from the villa to find supermarket, great restaurants and delicious ice cream. Everything else, including spectacular views, was more than catered for at the villa.
Would highly recommend this villa to anyone and cannot wait to return!
A very stress-free location - beach/shops market stalls within walking distance. The villa is has everything you need for a perfect holiday..
We visited Quinta Oceane as a party of 17 girls in March 2017 and WOW what a place it was! If you’re looking for somewhere spectacular, this is it! The pictures do not do it justice.
The booking/payment process was simple and communication was excellent throughout. We arrived quite late in the evening and were met by a lovely man named Geoff who, before even arriving, had picked us up a number of essentials, drinks etc. He gave us the keys, showed us around and popped back down the road to collect a Chinese takeaway for us all as we hadn’t had time to eat that evening. What an absolute gem!
All bedrooms were of great size; each had two twin beds, an air-con/heating unit and its own en-suite bathroom. The bathrooms were all incredibly modern, clean and the shower pressure/heat was excellent. The kitchens (inside and outside) were both equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need for self-catering, including a juicer for the lovely oranges growing on the trees outside! The lounge/dining area had comfortable sofa’s and ample seating for everyone to relax. There were board games, books, DVD’s, a Wii console, Amazon TV and a radio to play about with also. The outside area was the absolute best part for me – the swimming pool was huge and cleaned regularly, and there were lots of inflatables to mess around with. The jacuzzi (although a little cold) was refreshing and the sauna was definitely worth paying extra for! There is an electronic gated entrance for extra security and ample parking for many vehicles!
We had a few small issues occur during our stay, namely I think because we were the first group of the 2017 season, but these were all rectified quickly by Geoff who was polite and helpful throughout. Make sure you mention any issues – if they don’t know, they can’t help you! Our deposit was returned quickly and in full.
Overall, we absolutely loved Quinta Oceane and were sad to say goodbye after only one short week! If only we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much to Doug and Geoff for such a wonderful stay.
We had a group of 17 people (10 adults and 7 children ranging in age from 12 to 3) celebrating a 50th Wedding Anniversary. The villa is a good size and adequately accommodated our group.The property is located at the end of a very rocky, dusty dirt track approx 300/400m from the road. Not good for the car or body. The walk to the beach is about 25 minutes downhill for a reasonably fit person but a lot more difficult for more mature guests. The walk back from the beach/town is uphill and taxis are difficult to get. If you have dinner at night you may need one or more designated drivers to get back to the property.
There are 10 bedroom and some of the beds were very uncomfortable. We were only advised there were substitute mattresses available when we got home - a bit late. Despite a number of requests the AC failed to work in a couple of bedrooms for the duration of our stay. Anybody sleeping in a bedroom on the top level needs to be careful as there is a marble winding staircase and low roof at a particular point. Fine if you are under 5ft 6ins tall.I am 6ft 1in and had a few scrapes.
The kitchen and living area on the middle level are just about adequate for a group of our size. The toaster was broken when we arrived and we replaced it at our own cost with no questions asked. Additionally the couches in the living area are badly damaged and a number of our party got some stains on their clothing. Very disappointing when you have paid €12k for a 2 week stay. We paid a further €120 for WiFi that was useless and a total waste of money. Dont buy it.
The best parts of the villa are the external BBQ area and swimming pool. The kids really enjoyed the pool and kiddies pool.There is also a fuzzball table (good fun), a table tennis table (bats were unusable), all weather badmington court (we had to buy new racquets and shuttlecocks) and an outdoor sauna.
While the property ticks a number boxes a lot of the furniture is tired, faded, jaded and requires upgrading. The villa needs a lot of TLC. This was a big family occasion and consequently we did not complain nearly as much as we should have.
The biggest problem arose when we requested a refund of our deposit and were advised that it was being retained to replace damaged towels and bed linen.According to the owner the stains were caused by fake tan or sun cream.for all 17 people. Amazingly none of the towels or linen was damaged in Week 1 when we would have had the opportunity to reasonably contest any problems.We have had ongoing correspondence since mid July and the owner has made a number of ridiculous suggestions including posting all the towels and bed linen back to Ireland. We now recognise the deposit will not be refunded and we have ceased communication.
