Having been charged with organising this I can only say it was a real pleasure dealing with Victoria (who was available at the drop of a hat even though she was pregnant and probably had little interest in me asking silly questions!) Having given us nunos information for transfers it was a pleasure to see him standing in the airport and after the 20ish min drive to villa the biggest problem we had with the villa was squabbling amongst ourselves to get in the pool quick enough. Having napped the penthouse Myself and the stag were obviously well impressed as were every other guest that stayed. The rooms were all very clean very air conditioned and the vast number of fridges were exactly what we needed for when we stocked them with all sorts. We didn't use the bbq area as the chicken shop across the main road we found was lovely and didn't want to make the villa a mess with 14 blokes cooking a BBQ but I can imagine it would've been great. The location of the villa was brilliant and after a night out the ten minute walk home seemed to sober us up... Thanks for all your help Victoria , victor and nuno . Having taken 24 hours to sober up the Genaral consensus was that everyone had a fantastic time and I got a lot of praise for organising so I am well pleased with that considering you guys did all the hard work. I think we will revisit next year with the wives and girlfriends and indulge in that pool and villa with far more relaxation as the primary objective!!

The apartment is centrally located handy to the beach 50 meters away and bus station 100 meters away . The apartment is spotless and furnished beautifully and is well looked after. Quiterria is a fantastic place to visit with its beautiful beaches and choices of restaurants. We can't wait to return as it feels like a home away from home
