Quinta do Paraíso’s pristine white Moorish-style buildings are set amongst beautiful mature gardens laden with fig, almond and olive trees and vibrant bougainvillea.
Staff at this friendly resort are dedicated to creating a fun, relaxing holiday environment for children and adults alike. Daytime activities range from tennis and beach volleyball to mini golf and boules, while in the evenings the entertainment includes dinner shows, open-air parties and live music.

It’s only a 15 minute walk or a short shuttle bus ride to the picturesque fishing village of Carvoeiro where shops, cafés, bars and restaurants surround the golden beach. A little further along the coast you’ll find a wide choice of secluded sandy coves while the waterparks at Lagoa and Alcantarilha are well worth a day trip.

Chichester Family (the eldest child is at school)
Fabulous villa, really clean and spacious and well looked after with regular housekeeping and gardener/pool maintenance. Kitchen well equipped. All loved the beautiful pool. Reception helpful and quick to respond. Villa in a peaceful location, but just a 15/20 min walk to Carvoiero with lots of restaurants and shops. Only thing to let the villa down are the beds and pillows. All beds really squeaky - poor quality and thin mattresses and the pillows are lumpy (chopped up foam).

Leyland Family (the eldest child is at school)
Absolutely gorgeous villa. Spacious inside and out. Fitting to a high standard. Lovely large pool and patio area. Beautiful garden and completely private. Within the lovely Quinta da Paraiso, so Country Club with pool, bar and entertainment close by. Also supermarket and fabulous Trattoria within 2 minutes walk. Would thoroughly recommend this for a family looking for a chilled family holiday.

Caroveiro Family (the eldest child is at school)
Clean, spacious and bright. A little dated in terms of decor but had everything we could need for throughout the stay - a kettle, coffee machine, washing machine, full cooker and hob, fridge freezer, wi-fi. All it lacked was some cleaning equipment, such as a brush. The maid service was a bit hit and miss and just seemed to make the beds rather than do any cleaning. Outside area was lovely, especially with all of the foliage. It was also very quiet which is great with children. A wonderful place to stay with a young family.

Belfast Family (the eldest child is at school)
We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Buddleia. The villa is very spacious and comfortable and had a brand new and the best equipped kitchen of any Villa we have stayed at before.

There was a flat screen TV, DVD player and satellite television although we could only find a few English speaking news stations and the DVD player appeared to be faulty and wouldn't play any of our children's DVD's properly. Wi-fi was provided and the signal was excellent.

The Pool, gardens and area around the Pool were really nice and well equipped as well.

Graca our James Villa Rep was really nice and called out to see us during our stay.

The only negatives were you had to go back and forth to the reception a lot at the start of the holiday to get your key, get your wi-fi code, to get your beach towels, to get a safety deposit box, all these things should really be all provided in one go at check in. Also there was a steady stream of gardeners, maids and Pool cleaners calling in every day which did get a bit annoying at times.

The centre of Carvoeiro is a fifteen to twenty minute walk from the Villa. The views on the way over the Bay and the Atlantic are beautiful and the walk was a great way to work up an appetite for some lovely restaurants.

Harrogate Family (the eldest child is at school)
We are a family of 4 with a 6 and a 3 year old. The villa was an excellent size and whilst slightly dated, you could argue that this gave the villa some Portuguese charm.
The villa is tailored towards German tourists as the tv and most literature in the villa were all in German. However the TV had Sky news and BBC World which we find more than adequate when on holiday. There is a DVD player if required.
The resort itself is fantastic. 2 great size pools and 1 kids pool. The kids club was basic but our kids loved being there every day. It opens for two hours in the morning from 10am and two hours in the afternoon from 3pm.
The pool bar was good with a simple but decent choice of lunch snacks from burgers to club sandwiches and sandwiches. There was draft beer and an extensive choice of cockstails.
The walk to Canoveiro was around 15 minutes which was a nice walk through the resort and then down a hill to the town which had an amazing beach. There are decent restaurant choices when there where we recommend you try to book in peak season. We arrived 27 May when it was fairly quiet but when we left on 3rd June is was getting busy as were the restaurants.
Overall we thought he villa and resort was perfect for a young family holiday.

Lovely villa, good size rooms, well equipped.

We would not normally book a villa on a resort, as we prefer peace and quiet, however as this break was in March, we were pleased that the resort was quiet. Whilst the housekeeper was lovely, we had four visits in a week - (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday) all at different times so you couldn't predict when they would be coming. In our opinion, this number of visits was not necessary and it did intrude on our relaxing break. The pool maintenance came mid-morning and garden maintenance (three of them!) came whilst we were sitting outside.
