Family (the eldest child is at school)
The villa was spacious and clean. Somewhat short on useful things like washing up liquid, a tea towel to dry the dishes, perhaps some salt and pepper but otherwise all good. Yes it had free wifi but very slow wifi so be warned if you have teenagers that spend their life online. However, allows for after dinner games, so bring a pack of cards or travel board games. Furnishings fairly sparse and basic but functional and the beds were comfortable.

Casa Azul is absolutely amazing! The pictures look fantastic, but they don't do the Villa justice. The villa is very spacious and perfect for a group / family, but having a car is absolutely essential. Praia Del Rey is pretty quiet and there's not a lot going on in the resort so it's perfect for those wanting a quiet getaway. We would definitely go back!

Great Villa. All you need. Wanted for nothing. Location rural. The resort does not offer much for entertainment - out door bars closed at night, no discos! Quite pricey for meals and drinks. Explore area beautiful beaches and cheap restaurants with friendly locals X x x happy memories

Villa Lisa

Peterborough Family (with only pre-school children)
Really liked the villa. It was in a quiet area although we went in June, out of season, so with the close proximity of neighbouring villas it could be quite noisy during peak times.

One or two things failed, one of the roller blinds, the smoke alarm kept peeping and needed a replacement battery but these were quickly and efficiently dealt with by the villa manager.

The Manager called round on the off-chance, we were not expecting her. She gave us excellent tips of interesting places to go. There was precious little information actually in the Villa so anyone visiting, Obidos a medieval village, well worth a visit. Obidos lagoon about a 10 minute drive has shallow water and is excellent for small children to paddle, the best beach is at Baleal a 15 minute drive towards Peniche

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Villa was beautiful, clean & in general well maintained. Although the weekly inspection had not been undertaken for 3 weeks. This showed as there was no hot water , the boiler was not working. We had to call maintainance, who did attended extremely promptly, there was a part broken and he fixed this within half an hour - so brilliant service.
We were also surprised there was very little basic provisions, 2 dishwasher tablets for one week, not enough toilet rolls and no salt and pepper. We had to purchase quite a few 'essentials' and then leave unused there.
The directions to the villa were totally wrong, glad we took our sat. nav. Some of the information in the villa booklet was either incorrect or out of date, such as restaurant info and dealing with waste - info was given twice in the booklet and contradicted each other.

London Family (with only pre-school children)
Lovely villa, much bigger than the photos suggest. Adequately equipped with everything needed for a self-catering holiday.

Helpfully, the villa is toddler friendly and a high chair was provided with cups, plates, bowls and cutely suitable for little fingers.

Great pool and lots of toys to play with.

There is a playground in walking distance, as is the club house but the Marriott hotel is a bit of a walk (15 mins). The club house serves a snack menu all day and dinner is from 7pm. Similarly, the Marriott also serves a snack menu in its bar and the restaurant opens for dinner (buffet 30€) at 7pm. There is another restaurant at the beach front, which is a drive away. Earlier dining options can be found in the surrounding area, but all are about a 20 minute drive.

The beaches are beautiful and again are a short drive away.

Woburn Sands Group
The villa was just as described on the website with quality furnishings both inside and out. It was equipped with everything you would need, even down to bag clips! It really was like a home from home. The villa is on a golf resort but as non golfers we found plenty of things to do in the local area. We would highly recommend both the villa & the resort as a place to holiday.
