We stayed at the villa for 10 days in August and loved every minute! It is exactly as described and had pretty much everything we needed.
There were 10 of us ranging from 18 - 67 and we found it was easily big enough to accomodate everyone. The pool is fab, views are amazing and the furiture very comfortable and luxurious.
The location was great, we did hite cars and regularly drove to lagos which is absolutely stunning. The two beach bars are a 2 minute walk, we fell in love with the guys at Antonios. They are hilarious and the food is great value. Campimar is also very good value and lovely food.
My only negative comment is that the annexe was not finished to the same standard as the main villa. Myself & my partner found it quite basic. Just small things like no hanging rail for clothes, no air con.
Overall we had the best holiday ever & everyone agreed we would definately return!
Casa Mar was everything I had hoped it would be. I spent many hours searching for a property with something special to take my family for a holiday to celebrate my 60th birthday and we were not disappointed. The villa is fantastic, spotlessly clean and well equipped.
John was very easy to deal with both during the booking process and once we got to the villa. We didn't have many problems except a slight issue with the pool cover and a broken lock on the gate but John responded very quickly.
My only negative comment would be that it wasn't particularly family friendly though I don't suppose that is particularly the market this property is aimed at. For example a pool table or table tennis table could have helped amuse my 12 year old gradson in the evenings or to get him out of the pool during the hotest part of the day. The pool does go deep very quickly and doesn't have a very shallow section so you would need to be careful with little ones.
Porto de Mos itself has a beautiful beach and a couple of restaurants but unfortuantely doesn't have a shop within walking distance. It is completely dominated by holiday villas and appartments so don't expect to be able to walk into a village to find a bar.
Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday in a superb villa.
