                                                                                                    Fantastic stay in beautiful well appointed accommodation in an excellent location. We travelled as 2 families - 4 adults, 4 children and 3 older teenagers and Villa 15 was absolutely perfect for us. The description "cozy" only applies to the way Helena and Alfredo made us feel at home and certainly not to the size of the property, which is large and well laid out!. The lounge/dining/kitchen area is open plan and spacious, perfect for cooking family meals and there is ample dining space inside and out. We loved eating an evening family meal around the outside dining table overlooking the pool. There is everything you would expect to find in a kitchen including a large fridge freezer and a dishwasher (with detergent provided) Handwash is also provided in all the bathrooms, which is a nice touch (and saves on luggage weight) There are also hairdryers and Iron and board. The kids enjoyed having access to Wi-Fi and we were able to install Netflix on the TV. There was quiet and efficient air con throughout. A safe is provided and the property felt nice and secure. The family bathroom has a bath (as well as an over bath shower - great if you have young children who don't like a shower. The outside areas were excellent - ample sunbeds and 2 umbrellas to provide shade - the outside dining area was also covered if you wanted to get out of the sun. The pool was a great size and enjoyed by us all, pool attendants came to check everything OK and do a spot of cleaning. The barbecue and the table tennis were an added bonus and much used. A clean was done mid week and towels changed and again at weekend and towels and linen were changed. We had a problem with the safe (think it was something we did) and Alfredo turned up immediately to sort it out for us. There is a washing machine outside, which we used to wash towels after a visit to the beach and was most appreciated. The villa is a short walk to the strip - which was great for the older teenangers but the noise was minimal - we had to strain very hard to hear the music when sitting outside at night time. A short (5 euro) taxi ride takes you into the Old Town, which is lovely and full of nice bars and restaurants and shops. The beach is just a short walk away, but there is a bit of steep hill on the way back! Overall we all really enjoyed our stay in villa 15 and would definitely return.

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    On arrival, the hotel staff seemed a little confused as we weren't in their computer system which made me panic a little. I had printed off an email from Mr Silva though and that seemed to sort it out. The apartment is spacious, clean, with 2 bathrooms (handy with teenagers) and the huge balcony, Sky tv and basic air conditioning boosted with freestanding units. Lots of crockery and cutlery but take/buy cleaning products. Towels were changed twice in a ten day stay which was very good. The apartment is 5 minutes from the beach where you can always get a sunbed and try out the water sports. 10 minutes by taxi (the hotel bus was not working!) into the old town but just a few minutes walk from numerous bars, shops and good restaurants (the sizzling stone !!!) Mr Silva was extremely helpful, replying promptly by email if I had a question as I'd never booked privately before. We only had snacks in the hotel itself - toasted cheese etc which were very nice as it was difficult to work out what was happening in the restaurant as most people seemed to have an 'all inclusive wristband' . Much time and effort seems to have gone into the maintenance of the pools and gardens which were very nice and well kept. Get up early (9am) if you want a sun bed with an umbrella and take a drink as its a walk to go and get one ( no food permitted) . A mixture of ages with some enjoying Zumba in the pool at 11am and pool party dancing at 4pm. Mr Siva's apartment is really good value for money and was a great base for the family to enjoy Albufeira.

When we arrived we had one of the local representatives open the door for us and then showed us around. The apartment was perfect for our little family and the space was lovely. The outdoor pool and indoor pool were great for us and the kids! The localization of this apartment is just perfect as we did not need a car and we only needed a taxi to visit further of the Algarve! It took us 5 minutes to walk literally everywhere. The apartment is at steps to restaurants bars .. supermarkets! There are also 2 beaches close to the apartment which was good so we got to go to both! The service provided throughout our stay was excellent and everyone is just so friendly!! We had an amazing time and will definitely have a search through other of Algarve Vacations properties to book in the future!
