I stayed in this villa in August 2014. I was along with 4 other girls and we just loved the villas. They were very clean and looked to be very new. The villa was so luxurious!! We were in heaven! There is 3 pools which we shared with other villa stayers but the pools were very quiet. The villa was about 5 mins in a taxi out of Albufiera but we didn't mind that. There is shops and a hotel with restaurant just up the road. I'd definitely come back to this villa and I would recommend them to all my friends. The villa was like staying in a really fancy house! We loved it!!
The layout of the villa, 3 bathrooms & bedrooms, the TV stations, full refrigerator, 3 unheated pools, underground parking, the included breakfast, great orange juice. Small grocery store 4 blocks away. Near by restaurant. Quiet location. 2 Beaches with restaurant in walking distance. Friendly staff. Note check in is up the block with the breakfast location.
No soap bars or shampoo provided. Toilet paper limited.
We loved the beach at Sao Rafael which is about a leisurely 10 min stroll from the villa. The beach bar there is great for snacks and drinks during the day. Found a great restaurant called Praia Grande just up from the beach with fab champagne sangria. Very relaxing holiday. Staff were nice and very helpful.
Just one point to note that villas go under the name of Sao Rafael Guesthouse which is helpful when trying to find it. Google map have the "Luxury Villas" pinned in the wrong place. Otherwise everything was great and the staff were very helpful.
Quiet area, easy walk to beach. Friendly, helpful staff.
Nothing, excellent experience all round.
Everything was great
better access to he beach
The villa was very nice and modern. Pool was quiet and enjoyable. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
I was disappointed to learn we were unable to use our access cards for the hotel part (the beach walkway, didn't feel like we could use the pool). For a 3 night stay, we were not given enough soap to use the dishwasher, and not enough toilet paper, no hand soap... I considered this to be a "hotel like" hotel, this was not the case.
Excellent standard of accomodation. Very peaceful location but glad we had a car to drive into Albuferia - dont think it was in walking distance.
Outside area was not big enough for six people and no umbrella was available ( other villas hadthem ). I usually like to have breakfast and lunch sitting outside. Dining a chairs in the villa made a lot of noise on the stone floor - Inconsiderate late night neighbours kept us all awake. If you fix the chairs I would come back.
We liked that the villa was big and that the interior was nicely decorated. The terass on the roof was a very nice place to eat breakfast and hang out. Nice pool area and close to the beaches.
The aircondition was a bit tricky in one room and didnt seem to function correctly. The wifi was not that good; hard to find a good connection.
the staffs is very helpful, the place is amazing :) could not ask for a better villas .
the guest house closed a bit too early , the location is rather distance from everything else .
The villa was excellent with a lovely sea view. The local beaches are beautiful and the overall area is very pretty, quiet and relaxing.
Although a car is not strictly necessary the choice of shops and restaurants within walking distance is very limited.
1. a 3 bedroom villa meant we could give the kids separate bedrooms (each had a flat-screen TV); 2. The villas are a 5 minute walk to Sao Rafael beach which is small, intimate and beautiful. The restaurant at the beach there - O Sardineiro - has one of the most picturesque locations I have ever eaten at. Lots of towels (including pool towels in each room), good quality fixtures and loads of space.
No on site bar / dining facilities, or shop, but independents are but a few minutes away on foot so it is no big deal. Not much to criticize if you want a quiet getaway for some sun.
The very friendly and helpful nature of the reception team. They made us feel more than welcome and ensured we had a wonderful break
Large spacious apartment
Pool area very small
Beautiful clean Villa it had everything u need , 10 mins from city centre in car , will visit again , just one down fall no mirror in bedroom or lounge ,
no mirror if u had mirror in bedroom or mirror in upstair & downstair landing it would be perfect ,
We were w/in a 4 min walk to the beach and there was one pool 3 villas/apartments down from us and the other two, only a few more apartments away. The villa/apartment was very modern and clean and had every convenience required in it. Our two families with a collective 3 small children were very comfortable in the villa/apartment.
I am so excited of our holidays, wonderful country, cousy modern luxury villa, staff work excellent, everythink was like in a dream, strongly recomending, and looking foward to come back next year :)
Perfect house all equiped. Very clean. Nice balcony with sea view.
1h30 delay before checking in.
Staff was great and helpful! Views were amazing!
Furniture was not comfortable. But was clean and useful.
The villa was superb. Felt like a home the minute we arrived. Very tidy and clean, plus modern and full of everything you need. Excellent beach too only minutes away and a choice of 3 pools behind our villa. We will be back!
Modern villa with all amenities. Good access to local shops and restaurants. Very friendly staff who were most helpful.
AC didn't work in the living area. Inability to walk out of the villa to a private pool or living area, barbecue etc.
- facilities - location - pool - balcony - sea views
- lack of security - lack of outdoor lighting - brazilian noisy neighbors
Wonderful place greate fun Nice view very relaxing The palace next door has great cocktail
beautiful villa. most beautiful beach ive ever been to. we'll be back!
since its new and the reception is still under construction (one more wk till finished), we always had to go next door to the other hotel to get beverages, snacks..etc. Not a big deal considering we ate in town mostly.
The villa was beautiful, just as the photos showed. Has everything you could need including dishwasher and washing machine. The staff were excellent and the cleaners came every couple of day which was a bonus. The beach is just a short walk away and old town Albufeira no more than 10 mins in a car. For a relaxing break I highly recommend it.
No mirrors in the bedrooms but managed fine with the ones in the bathrooms.
Excellent clean villas , brand new , possibly the best Villa I have ever stayed in , it had everything you could need from a washing machine to cutlery , the staff at the reception were always friendly and always willing to help , everything was brand new , only a two minute walk to the beach , lovely view from the roof , for the price we paid it was worth every penny .. would have paid much more! :)
