Great location - this villa feels remote while also being right next to Salgados Palm Village resort, a really modern and large resort. We found the location of the villa great to the Marina, old town and new town for the nightlife. 10-15 mins in a taxi and we were in Albuferia. The villa service was great, staff were really accommodating and happy to help throughout our stay. Great bbq area outside by the pool for evenings. Would recommend car hire for supermarket trips at a minimum as the nearest Aldi/Lidl is 15 mins away, but there are some small concenience shops in walking distance. Overall great holiday!

Lovely little BBQ area just outside the kitchen with access to the pool in just a few steps so nice and easy. We loved the heated pool it was so nice to be able to get in quickly and stay in just bobbing around. Quiet surroundings which was also close to the beaches and shops

We were a group of 9 and the property had plenty of space for all of us. Huge house with all amenities you could ever need: the utility room alone is the size of a large kitchen! The pool and outdoor area is lovely; aside from the sun loungers, there is table outside for evening meals as well as a barbecue. There is a new table tennis table in the garage which was well used during our stay. Downstairs = 2 Twin rooms; Upstairs = 3 Double bedrooms (very large). I would highly recommend hiring a car for this property. The location is beautiful and quiet, but there aren't many things that are walking distance. The nearest beach is around a 30-40minute walk (walk through the hotel complex near the beach). The nearest supermarket is about 30mins walk. There are a range of nearby restaurants however (5-10mins). We all would definitely recommend staying at this villa!
