Cardigan Family (the eldest child is at school)
A fantastic villa, located just above the beach. Very well appointed, with a fantastic view. I would have personally preferred a bigger pool instead of a 'seated pool', and the four poster bed was probably the hardest bed I've ever slept in! Change the mattress please!!
We were very fortunate to have a last minute deal on this villa, otherwise it is very pricey.
You can even walk down the beach into the old town for a night out. Cracking holiday.

Wrexham 3 generations of family
Lovely villa in a great location with direct beach access. Nice little restaurant within walking distance but otherwise you need a car or taxi to get to albufeira old town. Good little pool and jacuzzi. Great for large families or groups.

Some of the equipment needs updating - 2 broken parasolls in the garden, dishwasher door cover was broken, shelf in fridge broken. Possibly reflecting it was coming towards the end of the season when we were there.

All in all a very nice villa

lanark Friends
the position/location of villa Praia is unbeatable. the outside space was a bit tired , old and inadequate sun-shades, wood round pool had some bits missing, pool men left the large service trap up!, sleeps 9 only 4 proper sunbeds, hot- tub lid in two bits!, path to beach was assault course. the pool turned a shade of green by end of week...would not use it on last day. maid only called once.

These are only minor points the whole holiday went well. I would use this villa again but would get the pool men to get the finger oot.

Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa location is excellent and the villa itself is a great space. We were 2 families of 4 and it worked out great with 1 family downstairs and one upstairs. A few minor improvements are required but generally it is a great villa.

Earl Soham Grandparents/parents/3 teenagers
Beautifully located villa with amazing sea views on the outskirts of Albufeira. We spent the majority of the week under the verandah gazing out to sea- lots of parasailing/various kinds of boat to watch go by.
Very well equipped, but some of the appliances ( Krups coffee machine / Coffee percolator/microwave ) worked with a few niggling issues , but need updating.Sue , our Rep did her best to get theses sorted. We chose to have the pool heated and it was a perfect temperature. It is a fairly small pool, so not best suited to younger children, same depth (approx 1m?) throughout.Well maintained during our visit as was the hot tub.
The price of the peaceful location in such a busy resort was that it was a long walk to the town center/watersports. If you were wanting to be part of the action , this is not the villa for you. If you are after a view to die for and a place to unwind-it is. We would love to return when we have saved up enough money to do so. Highly recommended. Our group had 3 generations and it suited us all.
