Welcome pack on arrival was very good. Customer service from all we engaged with was excellent and courteous. Would stay again. It should be noted that it's quite a walk to Albufeira old town if not walking along the beach (only 20 minutes if walking along the beach). Short and cheap taxi ride back though. Villa do Pateo is peaceful and private - not far from Albufeira old town. We had a couple of lovely meals at restaurant Cabana Fresca in Albufeira and also good pizza at Urban Pizza. Only 10 minute walk to The Strip if that's your thing. 20 minute walk to decent sized Intermarche supermarket. Only criticism is that we could have done with some information about local supermarkets etc in the information folder.

It's a shame that when we visited late September, early October the balcony is completely in the shade apart from a tiny corner (space for one chair) which gets sunny from 4pm. This was a shame as the swimming pool is a walk away. The kitchen is sparsely equipped with very little cutlery or crockery, therefore, not much point having a dishwasher. Very useful having a washing machine and some English TV channels. Isa was very helpful and friendly with excellent communication.
