                                                        Great villa!!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        6 chaps in their 40's stayed here in April. 4 bedrooms are en-suite and the other bedroom has a bathroom next to it. This villa had everything we needed. Kitchen is fully equipped, also washing machine, iron etc. The selection of TV channels is not so good if you're English but if you're German or Portuguese you'll be fine. We didn't come to watch TV anyway! The maid came 3 times, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and did a great job. There's also a gym room downstairs. Then there's the pool. Loved it!! There's steps down to the pool. Great size and we paid for the heating as i'm sure we wouldn't have gone in as much without it. There's a BBQ by the pool and on the terrace outside the living room for those so inclined. Nice view of the sea too. Old Town and the Strip are both roughly 20/25 minutes walk. Taxi home from either was about 5 euros. Strip is more for the young 'uns but worth a look. There's a nice restaurant just a few minutes walk just up the road past the Monica Isabel on the right. Fry up hit the spot for brekkie! Also the 'Snack Bar' pub (that ironically doesn't serve food) was good for a pint and watching sport. Don't be put off by the standard white seating outside, much nicer inside! Overall, this is a great villa. We had no problems and our deposit was returned in full a couple of weeks later. Can't recommend enough. Florence answered any queries via email and everything went smoothly. You pick the keys up from the Monica Isabel reception. Thank you!!

                                                        A lovely home away from home

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The apartment is everything the pictures show and more. We stayed for 5 weeks this year. The views are lovey and the apartment is very comfortable. Maria, Kevin and Louise are all great to deal with. This is the fourth apartment of Maria's that we have stayed in and we are returning next year. The grocery stores and resturaunts are all in walking distance. Our favourite resturaunt is Neto's and Didi's although there are many more. I have recommened this apartment to friends.

                                                        Stay with family in a group of 9 . The villa is lovely and everyone had a good time and said they would go back again . The villa is a few minutes away from the strip but still quite , the grounds of the Vila nice , and there are plenty of sun beds for every one , kids loved the pool and the pool table , Jim is very helpful and will answer any thing u need to know , he arranged our transfers to and from the airport and nothing was too much trouble. The other staff are very good too again nothing is too much trouble for them . Everything was great from start to finish every one had a lovely time , can't wait to go again .
