“Hen weekend”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

I was part of a group of 12, booked into Villa Rosal for 3 nights, for my future daughter-in-law's hen weekend.
I had lots of communication with Dale before our departure. All our many questions were answered satisfactorily and quickly.
We notified him of all our flight details in advance, transport was organised to suit our different arrival times and all was very efficient and reasonably priced.
We were asked to pay a deposit of €80 per person in cash at the office on our way to the villa, but we paid in sterling by bank transfer in advance. This should be refunded within 7 days of vacating the villa following damage checks. As we kept the villa clean, tidy and stripped the beds used, we are confident of a full refund.
There is just 1 front door key, which is kept in a coded security box outside the front door and there is a security alarm. Codes are issued by Dale at the office en route from the airport. There is a requirement for closing all shutters, setting the alarm and locking up the key, when you leave the villa, but this is nothing more than would be expected of you at home.
The villa was much more spacious then we were expecting and suited our needs and party size, with more than ample beds for us all. The rooms and bathrooms were very spacious. When they state there is a double and a single bed in a room, the single is an actual bed and not a camp bed.
Bath and hand towels are provided, but pool/beach towels are not. The towels are white, so staining sun lotions are frowned upon and you could be charged for towels which cannot be cleaned.
The kitchen, dining area and lounge areas were ample for our requirements, as breakfast was staggered, lunch was eaten outside and evenings were either on the terrace or or out. We didn't run short of crockery nor cutlery, as we washed up after every meal, despite having a dishwasher. The pool was a nice size, but is not heated and was very cold when we were there.
We took a taxi to Aldi for our initial main shop and only had to stock up with water and a couple of small items from the local minimarket once, which is about a 15 minute walk away.
Scooby's was within easy walking distance, it took us 9 minutes from the villa. 1/2 price cocktails all day until either 6 or 8pm (we didn't stay that late & I don't recall the precise hours). They serve food, have a pool, a crazy golf area and also have a minibus in which they run you back to the villa if requested. There is free wifi there too.
Taxis are very reasonable into town, €5-6 per car, but we did have problems with the drivers not knowing where the villa was situated. Scooby's was quite well known, as was O Marinheiro, which were both very close.
We ate at o Marinheiro on our last night & had an amazing meal. The monkfish was the most tender I have ever eaten and the steak was apparently cooked perfectly to each individual's taste. The wine menu was fine and the staff very friendly.
We did a 3 hour boat trip from the marina, which was brilliant. The 12 of us plus 2 crew members, was the maximum number of occupants allowed and was just perfect for our group.
We had a slight issue with the safe -it wouldn't open, despite following all instructions to the letter, and after phoning Dale, the owner came along within an hour and sorted the problem.
There are no supplies left in the villa, so you need to come with basics or plan to do a shop very soon after arrival. We collected a few essentials from the small shop across the road from the office in Albufeira, where we went to finalise the paperwork en route to the villa.
Tha shower/bath water was not as hot as we a used to in the UK, but we were brave and coped. I am not sure there would be many places which could offer hot showers for 12 females, within an hour of each other, after a day around the pool, in the sun.
We left some food, cleaning and toiletry items, after checking with Dale, as we have come across places in the past which will charge you for not clearing the accommodation before leaving of all items you brought in.
In summary, we had a fabulous stay, the accommodation was more than satisfactory for our requirements and the information/organisation/support was very efficient. We were very happy with our choice of accommodation and would definitely recommend the villa for lager groups/families. We had a great time.
Thank you Dale!

“Stunning Villa”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The villa is well presented, provided more than enough space and amenities for our group of 8.
Alongside the pool there were other activities available with the table tennis, tennis courts and pool table which gave us alternatives to just a swimming pool.
The BBQ enabled us to cater for a large group with ease and the kitchen was more than sufficient if needed.
Being only a short walk from a lovely beach and a couple of restaurants as well as only being a short drive from Faro this villa was ideal for our group and the holiday we were looking for.

“Nearly Perfect....”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The villa is an hour from the airport. I would say you definatly need a car. We picked a 9 seater up from the airport with Economy Car Rental, very good service. We called at the office to pick the keys up for the villa, the office is near the strip & 15 minutes from the villa. The villa is massive, loads of rooms. We had a group of 10 adults & 2 kids & it was perfect for us. The pool area is fantastic & great sitting out area at night for a BBQ. There is no wifi in the villa but we picked a dongle up from the office that was €5 a day, it was excellent coverage & 7 people could go on it. There's a nice quiet beach around 10 minutes from the villa & the strip, old town etc is around 15 minutes away. There's a few bars in the area, about 10 minutes walk away. A guy came around a few times to clean the pool while we was there. The negatives where, I think the wifi should have been free. The villa needs a couple of hundred euros spending on new pillows, bedding & matrasses. Then it would have got 10/10. All in all, we LOVED it and we would definatly stay here again. You can not be dissapointed, with the size, a good few balconies off the bedrooms, pool table, private tennis court, table tennis table & brilliant pool area.

“Great villa + service”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Have just come back from spending 3 nights at Villa Rosal, 14 in our group.

From when I booked to arrival Dale was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions with a same day response, i had a lot of questions. Dale arranged for one of his drivers to take us to the supermarket to get some shopping after they had collected us from the airport. We also arranged for the mini bus to collect us on our night out.
The villa is about a 10-15 minute drive from the main town so we used cans everyday. Dale explained to take a picture of the villa and name and show to a cab driver when we wanted to come home...worked perfectly for us and every driver we asked knew where to go. One didnt but I told him the name of the restaurant nearby and direct from there.

The villa itself is fantastic and has ample space, in fact it was hige and despite 14 people being there it never felt crowded.
We found it to be clean and well appointed. The pool is massive and the majority of rooms have en suite bathrooms.
Some cutlery may have been good however I can imagine these would always get lost and they would be forever replacing them.

Would definitely stay again!
Thanks again Dale!!

“Absolute Superb. Amazing value for money”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed in May 2015, a group of 14 lads. The service had been excellent with numerous emails asking questions and Dale was always prompt with his response.
The villa is phenomenal. Absolutely huge and in mint condition. I show people pictures and they can't believe the price. Its around 12mins by cab to the strip, easy to get a cab at the restaurant at the top of the road.
There is also a quiet beach nearby but a good place to
go for breakfast/chillout is a pool bar called Scoobys. Great owner who will drop you to the beach and even keep your bags after checkout when waiting to depart for your flight.
The pool is not heated so can be a bit cold but thats a minor gripe when you have such a great villa. Table tennis, a quality pool table, a tennis court, at least 10 sun loungers, a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge, microwave and toaster. Lidl is around 10 mins away if you want to stock up.
The villa is clean and refreshingly cool inside. There is also a bar area.
In short, quite an excellent location and quality of accommodation.
