The host is lovely, very friendly and meets at the premises both on arrival and when leaving. The views from the villa are fantastic and the pool area lovely. The villa is however in need of some Maintenance, the bathrooms are very cold and there is no ventilation so condensation is a major problem, resulting in a lot of mould growth and dirt on the tiles. Never felt clean during our stay as both bathrooms generally below a reasonable standard and limited hot water so had to phase shower times. Could be difficult for large groups visiting, only four of us. The kitchen is also a little dated but has everything you need although we ate out every night. we visited during a cold and wet period so always felt a little cold and damp in the villa, I am sure it is a lot warmer in the summer. Beds very hard, did not sleep well. Bedding did not fit the beds properly and would constantly come off the mattress, duvets provided in the wardrobes (which we needed to use due to weather) but the covers missing to two of these, were provided on the others, they did not appear to be freshly laundered. I actually bought a new mop head and cleaning stuff and mopped the tiled floors as I just felt the villa needed a good clean, some areas smelt, ie the ensuite bathroom and adjacent lobby. Maybe the villa had not be occupied in a while due to time of visit, it just felt cold, damp and in need of a good clean. Not the five star luxury we were expecting, a little disappointed.
Villa was very good in most parts and while we enjoyed our stay we felt the pool area could have been better maintained.the facing wall were brown due to dripping waste pipes.the table provided was shabby.and general state of the garden not what you would expect.
We have just returned from a fabulous holiday, staying in villa Yuka. Patricia met us on arrival, and came again this morning on our departure. Lovely personal touch. The villa has everything we needed for a fantastic trip to the Algarve. We ate out everyday, sometimes at the marina, sometimes the old town, and other eateries in between. It is quite a hike to get back to the villa as it's quite high up, not a problem at all, and its positioning gave amazing views.
We will definitely be back!
The pool does get sun from rise to set, just wonderful and very relaxing holiday.
