The villa and location were excellent, Vale do Lobo is a lovely resoort. The main problem I experienced with the level or should I say lack of customer service from Sandy Blue Villa rentals. Their welcome pack included balsamic vinegar, almond biscuits, a tin of sardines and 2 fridge magnets - not helpful to anyone, embarrassing really on their part. The other issues is that there seems to be a reoccurrence of Sandy Blue finding ficticius or pre-existing damages, albeit small ones like scratches on the kitchen door as a way of retaining your security depsoit, I have seen other reviews where this has happended before. Not sure how trustworthy this company really is and with that in mind my recommendation is to find another villa company that rents in Vale do Lobo, which is really a lovely resort.

Booked this trip and advised them that we would arrive at 12 mid day. On arrival we were informed very rudely that the apartment wouldn’t be available until 5pm. The member of staff was extremely rude. Under the current circumstances (Covid) we were not happy to be circulating with the masses for 5 hours! The apartment is average. Clean inside but very dirty on the outside areas! The beds are very small and the bathrooms are very shoddy and need replacing. We look out at a roundabout and road and are overlooked by other residents. Be aware this is not 5 star accommodation! If you want a Trueman (film) experience this is the place to be. The restaurant/bar areas feel like a Disney resort. Are we happy NO! Would we recommend DEFINITELY NOT!

THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE. Todays date is Sunday 16th Aug 2020, I arrived at midday to be told that the apartment I was renting would not be available until 5pm. I asked if this could be brought forward and was told that it could not be and that these are the terms and conditions of the booking, i had missed the small print. The female who was doing the check in had no consolatory tone, no customer service skills and was more than prepared to have a stand up row raising her voice. The check out is 11am so the give themselves a full 6 hours to turn the rooms round. I phoned back at 2.30pm to check the status, and was told once again firmly that I would be contacted if the room became ready, i explained that i would provide an accurate account of my experience on trip advisor and was basically told to do what you want. I was contacted at 15.50 to say the apartment was ready and took occupancy at 16.15hrs. Four and a quarter hours after arrival. The apartment is okay with some tired furniture, the hot tub only has one jet working, its overlooked and looks out on to a roundabout, there is bird muck on the balconies. The outside areas are dirty. Bathrooms are shoddy, crack in one of the baths, marked toilet seats. If you want to have a fantastic experience of beautiful surroundings, fantastic customer service and to be made to feel great and special with attention to detail go and stay at Vila Vita Parc, its more expensive but it provides excellent value for money.
