The villa is advertised as a four bedroomed villa, however only 3 of the bedrooms are in the body of the main house, the fourth bedroom is in the basement which is reached by an unlit outside concrete staircase . The fourth room is dark and gloomy , there are no wardrobe and little space to hang clothing. The on suite shower room is very small and smells of damp.
On arrival the pool had not been cleaned, and by the look of the green slime around the rim, it hadn't been for some time. After complaining, it was eventually cleaned later the following day. We were a family of 7 , looking forward to an early dip in the pool, so this spoiled the first day and a half.
Just back from an excellent 10 night family holiday at this villa which is in a great location near to the supermarket and lovely Marina. The villa felt spacious even with 9 of us staying, the bedrooms are all air conditioned which came in handy at night with the heat. The en suites are modern but the downstairs bedroom is pretty basic and not up to the same standard as the rest of the villa. The pool is excellent, we spent most of our time there with the kids, the large terraced area next to the pool gets the sun all day which is great. We had a slight problem with the water in the pool going green and cloudy but after contacting Clever Details this issue was resolved by the pool maintenance guy. The food in Vilamoura is lovely, we never had a bed meal the whole time we were there, the restaurants at the Marina were especially nice. There is a large gas BBQ at the villa which we used a couple of times when we fancied a night in. The Aquashow Water Park is well worth a visit, we spent a whole day there, great for the kids. Overall we had an excellent stay at this villa, if we hadn't have had the issue with the pool I would have given it 5*.
This is a lovely villa in a great location. It is within easy walking of the lovely Marina area with all its shops, bars and restaurants. There is also a decent bar and restaurant just 200m from the villa, Bike Tenazinha which is perfect for a couple of beers on the way back from the marina or for good food at reasonable prices. The villa is well furnished and extremely comfortable. The terrace area has sun all day and the pool is amazing - a very good size and very clean. Clever Details provided friendly, efficient service during our stay. The only disappointment was that we were unable to access the Vilamoura white bikes, which are located conveniently around the town - at the marina, Praia Vilamoura, outside the tennis academy, outside supermarkets etc. There is a bike station at the bottom of Rua Melvin Jones which would have been so handy, but apparently the bikes are only available to those with a resident's card......... Perhaps the town should look seriously at extending this service to its many visitors, as is usually the case with pubic bike systems.
All in all though we had a great holiday and look forward to returning!
We have had a brilliant holiday in this wonderful villa. The house was equipped with everything we needed, had loads of indoor and outdoor space and a fabulous pool. The location was really good, far enough from the centre to be quiet but an easy 15 minute walk to the marina. There was also a local bus service close by if we were feeling lazy.
This villa is lovely and the photos don't really do it justice.
