We stayed in Villa Martinique with our family of 5 children and were not disappointed one bit. The villa is very spacious and clean. Everything is catered for from adequate towels to a fully stocked kitchen of utensils etc. The kids loved the pool, although it was a little cold but given the time of year it's understandable.
The villa is perfectly located, with a local shop 2 minutes down the road and the beautiful beach a short 5 minute walk.
The old town is brilliant and again only a 10 minute walk.
We would definitely recommend this villa and would be more than happy to book again to stay again here in The future.
Just returned from a weeks stay at Villa Waikiki which is situated in a residential area near Lidl near the Old Town. We arrived on an early flight and I rang to see if I could get entry to the villa any earlier than 4pm as our family would be just hanging around but the villa wasn't ready for us but managed to get access at about 3pm. The villa is accessed by an electronic gate which we couldn't figure out how to open it from inside but it wasn't a major issue. The pool didn't look very inviting when we arrived it was full of floating flys and debris on the bottom so I don't think the pool had been cleaned before we arrived and was told someone would be out to it in our weeks stay but no one came to it while we were there. The downstairs of the villa is very modern with a downstairs double bedroom and en suite wetroom which was ideal for my less abled father to use. all mod cons in the kitchen d/washer washing machine American style fridge freezer enough glasses to open a public house in the cupboards and all utensils. The villa is stripped of everything that any previous guest would leave eg..washing up liquid, laundry detergent, tea coffee condiments and t'rolls etc so expect to buy these when you arrive. I personally left 9 toilet rolls but I bet the next guest didn't get them..! Bit poor really when we arrived to half a roll in each loo. The dining table chairs had a few rips in them also just niggly bits that need sorting before guests arrive. The upstairs of the property I would personally say needs updating to match the downstairs it is old looking and the beds aren't very comfortable so maybe investing in new mattresses would have given them the 5 star. The villa is within walking distance from The Old Town if you are quite fit as it is uphill on the way back. We personally hire a car as we like to get out and about during the day. The pool at the villa only gets morning sunshine and the weather wasn't really on our side while we were there so that wasn't such a disappointment. All in all the villa is good value for money and in a nice area. Algarve vacations staff we really good and Olivia who I dealt with over the emails was fab so I would recommend the company as I will certainly use them again but I wont expect perfection.
