Chose this villa due to the number of bedrooms and high number of bathrooms with a large group of women it was a must !
The booking process was really smooth and communications excellent. The management company organised transfers for us at a great rate. We were lucky enough to experience excellent weather and the lovely pool area is a proper sun trap. Couldn’t believe how warm the pool was for April ! We did have an issue as only 11 loungers available when there was 13 of us. I did mention this to the lady who dropped one of our friends off who said she was going to chase up but we never heard any more.
The open plan kitchen diner is lovely with 3 of the bedrooms being downstairs and all en suite.
Location is close to Teasers bar where you can be sure to receive a top quality breakfast with excellent service. There is a beach nearby down a steep hill but well worth the walk. The only downside is that we did need transport for our nights out on the strip. I would definately consider a return here and would recommend to friends as worked out very good value for a large group.
The villa is beautifully modern and in a great location. We were a group of 10 girls, different ages and the location and villa suited everybody. We stayed for 3 nights (not long enough).
The garden/ pool area is a right little sun trap, we had the sun all day long. The bbq came in very handy and had everything we needed.
Towels and toilet rolls were provided although we did have to pop out for more toilet roll.
The villa had everything we needed, the kitchen was very modern. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all great sizes and the beds and pillows were very comfortable!
The villa is a 10 min walk from everything which came in very handy for the strip and beach.
There is local shops about 5 mins walk from the villa that stocked everything we needed.
Communication with the villa manager over in Portugal and back home was brilliant and was always kept up to date. Jim (The manager back home) organised transport for us to and from the airport once in Portugal.
I would definitely recommend this villa and Columbia Villas. We are already planning our next trip!
We were a group of ten guys on a stag do. I was really impressed with the villa. I was very clean, great BBQ facilities, great pool and the living area was expansive. The pool table has seen better days but still met our needs. The pool area is secluded so you are not overlooked in anyway and theres no chance of being bothered/ bothering others(!). It's a really short walk to the supermarket and bars on the strip. If the strip isn't your cup of tea then there's a good range of "nicer" bars or the old town is not that far - 5euro taxi. We had no issues at all during the stay but I felt confident Miguel was on hand should we have needed him. Jim was a pleasure to book through and our damage deposit was quickly refunded. I would not hesitate to book again either with friends or family.
Arrived at the villa by a very polite lady who showed me how to work the key safe but by the time I had paid for our transport and entered the villa she was leaving. She told me Miguel would come and check that everything was alright but he never showed up even when I rang him the next morning to say the safe was not working and there was a dead rat in the pool. I waited in the villa both days such a waste of time.
We booked this villa to enjoy a family break to celebrate my fathers 60th birthday.
In total 10adults and 5 children (aged 9mths - 5yrs old) travelled and stayed in the well furnished, clean and secure villa. The villa had all the perks of a 'home away from home' with a variety of furnishings and accessories to hand.
A short walk from the beach, local shops, supermarkets and restaurant;s it offered us a great base for our stay and suited all members of the party.
Would definitely recommend!!
