The following review has been submitted for 75765 – Villa Andorinha, Cisne and Pavao 12 Bedrooms

Dawn Kettle review:

We hired all three villas for family members for our wedding in Portugal. Due to a bad turn of events (liquidation) we were unable to have our booked wedding reception at the hotel we desired. We asked the villa owner if we could have our reception at the villas with a marquee (in their large courtyard adjoining all the villas) and he kindly obliged. From the start the correspondence has been nothing short of fantastic and they did all they could to make our day special. From providing measurements to meeting our caterers and marquee suppliers. The villas were clean and well presented and were quiet even though they are minutes from the strip. As for our reception even the suppliers were amazed at how great it all looked. Would deffo recommend. Photos to follow!

  • 5 of 5

Stay with family in a group of 9 . The villa is lovely and everyone had a good time and said they would go back again . The villa is a few minutes away from the strip but still quite , the grounds of the Vila nice , and there are plenty of sun beds for every one , kids loved the pool and the pool table , Jim is very helpful and will answer any thing u need to know , he arranged our transfers to and from the airport and nothing was too much trouble. The other staff are very good too again nothing is too much trouble for them . Everything was great from start to finish every one had a lovely time , can't wait to go again .

Dated villa but staff more than make up

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a little dated but the columbia staff are excellent. Miguel helped us arrange all the excursions with the excellent George (taxi driver). The villa is nice but not as new as the pictures make out. It was an excellent base though in a good location close to the strip but still quiet. The slide and splash waterpark was a defo must for younger children.

Het huis was geweldig. We werden opgehaald met 2 busjes vanuit het vliegveld die ons naar het huis brachten. Onderweg naar het huisje mochten we stoppen bij een supermarkt om boodschappen te doen. Het huisje was heel schoon en goed onderhouden. Vanaf het huisje was je binnen 3 minuten bij de strip, waar alle clubs en restaurants zijn. Het was heerlijk om zo dicht bij te zitten en het was niet zo dichtbij dat je overlast had, je hoorde bijv. geen muziek van de clubs thuis. Ik zou dit huis aan iedereen aanbevelen, zeker vsoor jongeren! Wij waren met een groep van 10 meisjes en waren voordeliger uit dan al onze vrienden, en hadden ook nog het lekkerste huis!

In the night watch the town come alive with street performers and music . In one of the many great Restaurant's why not try chicken piri piri one of the local dishes.
