“Caters for all”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The Villa has everything you would need and caters for all. With two children, they enjoyed the pool very much in particular. The Villa is very spacious so there was lots of room for them to run around. I felt safe knowing that it had a surrounding gate, which could be locked if required. We enjoyed the barbeque a few nights of our stay and there was table tennis and a full size pool table to keep the kids entertained.
The Villa itself is just 5 minutes from the main Strip with everything you need. 10 Minutes away is the Old Town so the location is ideal as it's pretty central to everything, including a beautiful beach.
It's a place we all really enjoyed and i would recommend it highly.

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

I stayed in Villa Century for 8 days. The group was 4 adults and 2 children, ages 7 and 9. The Villa itself was so relaxing, clean and spacious, everything you could need with a beautiful private swimming pool right outside, very clean and the perfect size. There was an adjoining apartment to the villa which was very nice, was great for some of the adults as you could be away from the kids waking early in the morning, so the main house is great for the parents and the kids.
The manager, Jimmy,was so friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble, he had a welcome pack with tea, coffee and nibbles, just what you need after a tiring flight.

The Villa was only a 5 minute walk from The Strip, which is great for shopping, and filled with cafes and restaurants and in the evening, the nightlife that has a great party atmosphere or other little places if you prefer a quiet drink.

The Old Town is only about 10 mins away in a taxi, costing only 5 Euro, very cheap. The Old Town is very beautiful, with more shopping and restaurants and very pretty sites to see, and the beach right there too.

You could never be bored the there with all the activities, like cave and dolphin tours, parasailing, jet boats, fishing trip, segways, etc., the list is endless and the prices are so cheap.

Albufeira is amazing, and Villa Century is like home away from home. I would definitely go back there and would recommend it to everyone, of all age groups. Thank you.

“Lads Break in Portugal”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Myself and 3 friends stayed for a week at the Villa Century in May and enjoyed the stay that much that we are planning on going back next year. The villa was spacious, clean and in a great location. The pool was clean and refreshing and we used the BBQ on 3 days out of 7. A short walk takes you to a Portuguese supermarket where you can stock up on necessities. The famous "strip" is just 5 minutes away and I would say the "old town" is just a 20 minute walk away. The villa is in a quiet neighbourhood apart from a dog that can get a bit noisy during the day.

“A great weekend away!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Myself and 7 friends stayed in this Villa for my hen weekend and we had a brilliant time! The villa is in a central location really near the strip with it's bars and clubs and the old town isn't far either. The villa itself was lovely with a great pool area. The villa manager Jimmy was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble which was great! Thanks again for a great weekend!

“Great Location & Nice Place”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I booked this Villa with my friends (all lads) - we booked for the middle of February and were a little skeptical at first about the Villa, but I have to say first and foremost, what a great location this is in... The villa is well-secured with gates and a perimeter fence and the place was very clean indeed. We had a small problem with hot water, but this was rapidly rectified by Jimmy who was on hand in literally minutes and fixed the issue... The pool was a little bit cold to go in, but it was clean and is just great to relax on the loungers next to it...

Do not be worried about key pickup - this was outlined clearly when speaking to holiday lettings and Jimmy (The villa manager) - we got in within seconds. Jimmy had also kindly left us some biscuits, a bottle of wine and some tea and coffee with milk in the fridge - it's the little things!

The interior of the villa is great, clean and the rooms have heating and air con, which can easily be controlled. The annexe of the Villa is also great and kept to a high standard.

All in all, we were only there for a weekend, but due to location, cleanliness and great maintenance, we would love to return one day... Thanks to holiday lettings for the booking...

Security deposit was refunded promptly via Paypal after the trip and we found it GREAT value for money!
