Great villa, poor management agents

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

- Villa Topo is fully furnished, very spacious, finished to a very high standard, and very well maintained.

- Great location: 5 mins from Algarve Shopping and Zoo Marine, and 10 mins from Albufeira. Various lovely beaches are only 5 minutes away well.

Cons:

- Cleaning: the villa was spotlessly cleaned when we arrived, but despite claiming that the villa is cleaned 3 times per week, it wasn’t cleaned even once during our stay! Towels were not changed either during our stay.

- TV: It is claimed that the villa has satellite TV. Well, there is a TV, and there is a dish on the roof, but the only channels the TV receives are several shopping channels, Sky News, and the Travel channel. This is clearly misleading.

- Internet: The villa does have internet (wi-fi) access, but be warned: it is received through the mobile network and not a landline, so the speed is pretty slow, and the total download+upload quota is limited to 3GB PER MONTHS (with signs in the villa warning you that you’ll be charged if you exceed that). So if you thought that perhaps Netflix/Prime etc will compensate for the lack of TV channels above, then forget about it…

- Very poor information pack: it is clear that the management agents recycles these between the properties, which is fine, but they completely failed to mentioned anything specific to this villa in the pack: everything described in it starts with “if there is a XXX in your property…” with no specific information regarding anything in this villa. Examples: 1) no mention of the wi-fi password anywhere (had to phone the agents). 2) took us 3 days to find the safe (couldn’t be bothered to phone the agents again), but with no instructions, we couldn’t use it. 3) found a key hidden behind a plant pot on the kitchen window, to discover the basement play room (fantastic, by the way, especially for rainy days!).

- Our flight was leaving very late, and although we are aware that we were not entitled to it, after confirming that no guests were arriving the following day, we asked the agents if we could stay for a couple more hours on our last day. They said that it wouldn’t be a problem, as long as we pay for another full day stay… I suppose they have quite a lot of cleaning to arrange after not organising any for a whole week… ;-)

Despite the above we had a really good time staying in Villa Topo, and we will happily stay there again. It is just a shame that the management agents were not up to scratch.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

In 18 years of travelling the world and staying in villas, villa topo rates in our family's top 3. The accommodation is perfectly described in the advert and the attention to detail in the villa is very impressive. The location was excellent for privacy, views and accessibility.

The villa was immaculately maintained and the management company were very professional and helpful.

The local restaurants within walking distance are superb and the beach was a 5 minute drive and perfect for families. Albufeira is a short drive away and caters for everyone.

Would highly recommend this villa and will definitely return.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our second stay at this lovely Villa-which we can't praise enough and would highly recommend. We've stayed in many Villas in this area and this one is our real favourite. Excellent quiet location near the sea with good views particularly from the front, always very clean and well maintained with everything you require for a most relaxing enjoyable holiday.

Beautiful villa in amazing housing estate!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this villa was absolutely wonderful! It is located at the highest point of the estate, enjoying beautiful views over a golf course to the sea. The estate has only 9 villas, surrounded by unspoilt land, making it a very peaceful and special one.

Villa is modern, well equipped and pool area is very private. Services from owners, cleaning ladies and gardeners was absolutely spot on!

Albufeira town, several stunning beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and a golf course are located just a short drive from the villa.

We love to spend our holidays in the Vale de Parra / Gale area and we are looking forward returning to this or any other villa of this beautiful estate.
