Family (the eldest child is at school)
A really nice modern and spacious villa with a cracking view and setting. Excellent pool and private garden adjoining golf course fairway with all day sun.

Only downside was the location with the total lack of any facilities in the area. Nearest small shop is about 5 miles away and nearest supermarket about 15. Restaurants of any quality are non existent. Nowhere to eat except hotel or self catering. Nothing for children to do or be entertained it is a golf centre first and last.

Haverfordwest Family and extended Family
This spacious villa provided excellent accommodation for our large family holiday. It was clean and well presented. Directions are good and enabled us to find the rental place and the villa easily after a long day travelling. The owner has provided some great choices on shopping and places to eat out. Overall we were all very impressed and would highly recommend the villa to future users.

We had a fantastic time and even used the pool in October!!

Cambridge Couple
This is a difficult review to do. First impressions are great. The villa is modern, clean, well decorated and very large. The garden is small and dominated by a very nice swimming pool.

When we were there there was a real problem with noise from the property behind. At odd hours (20 to 10 on the Sunday morning, 6pm on the Wednesday evening and 10 past 8 on the Thursday morning for example), some sort of mechanical equipment was being used on the adjoining property. It was so loud we could not sit outside. It did not always last that long but you never knew when it was going to happen.

The property also had a musty smell which got worse as the week progressed (and the weather got more humid). The clothes kept in the downstairs rooms also became damp.

Also a word of warning there are a number of places in the villa where there are steps that are not easy to see.

All in all whilst we had a good week (admittedly by going out to avoid the noise) I was glad to be leaving by the end of the week.

We know how important it is to have relaxing days in the sunshine and peaceful nights in, so we're very sorry to read about the disruption you experienced. We understand a neighbour had decided to make repairs to his roof at the time of your stay. Our resort team liaised with the owner on several occasions to stop the works and although an alternative property was also offered to you, we're sorry for the inconvenience this unexpectedly caused. Our team shall be looking into the other issues you've kindly raised and thank you for letting us know.

Southampton Family (the eldest child is at school)
Not sure about location, miles from anywhere. Lots of rooms smelt damp, along with general damp smells around the villa exterior. Plumbing issues in the kitchen. Very noisy interior with no rugs. Not child friendly around the pool/upstairs bedrooms. Travel cot was not set-up for our arrival and how much would it cost to invest in a few safety gates for guest piece of mind? No info in the villa regarding our resort facilities...perhaps this was a slight hint that everything was closed...you can imagine how upset our kids were. No access to various resort pools allowed (gated & only entry via code unknown by us!) kids clubs closed. One day in our apparently PRIVATE villa, we had a visit from the gardeners who proceeded to mow the lawn while the kids played in the pool...not sure why this routine maintenance was scheduled during our stay? There was no warning or announcement when they arrived...I could have been sunning myself in my birthday suit! Then another day we had hassle from a sales rep who approached us whilst parking our hire car in the drive. He thought we owned the villa to tried to sell us security. That was a joke after the rude visit from the groundsmen.
Overall misleading information on your website re resort facilities. Not child friendly...you have been warned!

From villa Jasmine you can walk to some of the resort amenities, the clubhouse with restaurant/bar, the tennis courts, golf and children’s playground, whilst the main resorts of Obidos & Peniche are around a 20 min drive as per the description. Although no signs of damp have been seen on recent inspections, the area can experience humid weather so dehumidifiers are sometimes left in the villas to ensure the properties remain without damp and comfortable for guests. The pool area is child friendly, with the grounds being enclosed and flat with a grassed area. We provide information regarding the opening times and availability of facilities within the resort on our website; unfortunately the kids club is advertised as only being open in July and August. We do not state the villas have access to the communal pools, as these are for the apartments and townhouses that don’t have their own private pool, but we're sorry for any disappointment caused. Usually the gardener would be arranged for the changeover day but sometimes this is not possible because of the weather, however they should have announced their arrival, so we will feed this back to the management team in resort. Thank you for bringing your feedback to our attention and we do hope that in spite of the issues raised, you and your family enjoyed your stay at the villa.

Suffolk Family (with only pre-school children)
We had a very lovely stay at the villa it is very spacious inside and out. The kitchen is very well equipped as is the rest of the house. The only downside is the state of the pool floor with allot of missing tiles causing a few cut feet.

We had a couple of problems with some plumbing but was very impressed with the efficiency of the handyman who came out within a couple of hours.

Vila da Praia II

9 out of 10


London Family but all adults
The Villa was incredible, you could very comfortably have 6 people staying there without feeling like you didn't have any space or privacy.

Cleanliness was great on arrival and the cleaners came every other day to change the towels, make the beds and empty the bins but there were a few things they clearly didn't do like sweep the floors or wipe down the tables (I don't know if they were meant to or not and we are a fairly clean family anyway so it wasn't a big deal).

Location of the villa was great, we were right next to the mini supermarket and the Argento restaurant (which was fabulous!) and had easy access to the beach, our pool and the activity centre where we rented bikes (also great fun as we cycled to the lagoon!). The only problem was that you really do need a car to go anywhere else, I'm sure if we had asked they would have provided a taxi but eating out of the resort meant that one person always had to drive.

The restaurants at Argento and the club house were lovely but the club house was incredibly expensive. We found some lovely restaurants in peniche, baleal and obidos, plus some lovely cafe type places at the lagoon and the cove (cannot remember the name of it).

Overall it was a fantastic trip but one or two additions might have been welcomed such as an evening shuttle service to baleal. There was however an internal shuttle service between the area we were, the club house and the Marriott hotel so if you only wanted to stay at the resort you were well looked after.

Would definitely recommend this place. Such a beautiful part of Portugal as well!
