“Nice Villa, but service not so great”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We booked the cabs via the booking lady Karen. All went well when we arrived at Faro, even though the taxi driver didn't know where we were being dropped off at.
The Villa itself is a very spacious one, perhaps needs freshening up a little as it does look a bit tired, but still decent enough. Air condition is only in the two main bedrooms, not really what we expected to be honest but it worked ok for those two rooms. Even then we had to wait a day for the remotes to use it as they had been locked away and Karen had to come back the next day to give to us. We asked for spare keys as we were two families, but these were never delivered.

The Villa was not that clean, and although promised in the price, a maid service didn't turn up all week either, when it said three times a week in the manual and on the advert. Not very baby friendly to be honest as the floor was covered in dust. They did have two travel cots for the babies though.

The kitchen itself was nice, lots of utensils and the fridge/freezer worked well. It has a washing machine and Dish washer that both worked very well too.

Plumbing wasn't great. The upstairs bathroom didn't have hot water throughout our stay, so everyone used the downstairs shower. We also found the downstairs bathroom to smell fairly bad, not sure what it was, but it wasn't nice.

The pool was a very good size and the outside of the property was well kept, plenty of sunbeds and the BBQ was pretty good too. The pool wasn't filtered during the night so had lots of stuff floating in the morning. So it needed to be netted everyday by us. The pool man came round once during out stay just to test the water, but didn't do much other than that.

Location wise, its not bad, but not great. Ideally you need a car or a cab into Carveiro, as it's about 30 minute walk with kids/pushchair. It also has a massive hill which is close to impossible with a pram, beware. The town was nice, but seems very tired and run down in parts. Plenty of restaurants to chose from though. The beach is small but very nice, worth a visit. Sunbeds cost Euro20 for the day with a umbrella, not cheap.

Overall we had a great time in the Villa, mainly due to us making the best of what was there, and the company. But for me, I found the Villa needs freshening up and the service should be much better. We felt a little ripped off to be honest.

We wont be going back I don't think.
