I booked Villa Martinique through Algarve Vacations through the HomeAway website. This is the first time I have used this type of website to book a holiday as I always went for package deals. I was a bit worried that it wouldn't work out and that not all was as good as it seemed, but I needn't of worried. From start to finish Olivia and the team were excellent - all questions answered within a few hours. We were there for my husbands 40th birthday and Olivia arranged a delicious cake to be delivered from a local bakery. We also arranged our transfers from the airport to the villa with Olivia - the service was prompt and easy for both journeys. Our villa was fantastic - there were 5 of us staying altogether. You will find 3 bedrooms all on the first floor and one on the second floor - all good size. there is a toilet on the ground floor and two shower rooms with toilets on the second floor. The pool is clean and a good size. The best part of the villa is the view from the roof terrace - stunning. Location is right between the old town and the marina - both about 15 minutes walk. There is a large supermarket at the bottom of the street that is very reasonable in prices - the location of the villa is just perfect. We loved it and would definitely return. If i had to make any negative comments about the villa it would be that we all found the beds to be very hard. Also the roof terrace was a little grim and could do with lick of paint and new sunbeds . For me the roof terrace is a great selling point and i would have liked to have sat there during the day but the loungers were very dirty. Perhaps covers could be provided to protect them from the bird droppings. All in all we loved the villa - I cant thank Olivia and her team enough for making everything run so smoothly.
Very well located and equipped 4th floor apartment overlooking the beach. Alexander the owner was very welcoming and was contactable during our stay. Local and satellite TV stations, however they seemed aimed at German stations, no English. Would benefit from a DVD player. Comfortable balcony seating. Would recommend.
