About Alex

Hi! My name is Alex and I am a father of three -the best thing in life! ...the second best thing? Villa Atlantida, for sure!

Why Alex chose Albufeira

About Villa Atlantida some words: I am an ex- Hotel Manager and decided to built this villa for holiday purposes -it contains some aspects that an hotel possess -safe, fire blankets, etc - and villas dont. The villa has a plot of 1500 sqm and was idealized from a famous Portuguese architect. Beautiful sized gardens, two pools, 3 floors, 250 skm of inside areas between living and dinning rooms, bedrooms, ensuits, bathrooms, fire place, etc.

What makes this villa unique

The area is probably the best one (and one of the newest) in Albufeira, with extended sea and Albufeira views, in the private spot of Cerro Grande - 10 minutes walk from the Center and all amenites. You will not find better in the area. Enjoy Villa Atlantida!!

Wonderful Villa, clean and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

I was delighted to find that the Villa was exactly as advertised in the description. Very clean although as it was the end of the season some of the outside furniture was showing some signs of wear. The owner, Alex, provide complete instructions and guidance notes before we arrived and was there to meet us at the agreed time. We had one minor issue, with a washing machine, during our visit but Alex ensured that the problem was rectified very quickly. I would thoroughly recommend this Villa to anybody who wished to stay in a convenient and quite part of Albuferia. I will be returning with a larger group next May and we are already looking forward to the experience

Superb Holidays! Fiesta timeee...!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed the present August in Villa Atlantida. We had a superb time there as we were there in a party of working+ familly friends.

The villa is very beatifull, with nice gardens and the basic fittings. I would suggest to add a kindergarden for kids as an additional offer and to check outside plastics and with sun and use come to be light "rusted". Pool is brutal.

Oustside the villa you have the nice bar/restaurant of Hotel Cerro Marina and the local supermarket - Intermarché - though easy accessed is a bit pricey!

All the check-in and out process was accompained by the friendly owner - Alexandre - who even offered us home figs (the sun local fruit) upon arrival day.

We had overall a very nice period and hope to come for the NY.

Albufeira the best touristic spot in the South of Europe!

Owner's Response: Dear J.Rodrigues. Thanks for your time and the positive review. Hope Ella has a good end of pregnancy and baby Doodles has an Albufeira skin!!!..ahaha... It was a pleasure to welcome your nice friends also. About plastics we are constantly renewing them but sea, sand, sun and pool chlore are bad keepers. Will check this issue carefully. Reg. ...and of course if you come for the NY we will be pleased to offer you a discount. Reg. Alex

Absolutely disgusting!

  • 1 of 5

First of all when we arrived there were no supplies. We first had to went to to shops to buy everything like toiletpaper etc. After that we find out that our fridge wasn't working. It was very unpractical! Also one of the shower wasn't working.. The pool was cold and the chairs were very uncomfortable. But the worse of all were the hard beds. It was like you were sleeping on a stone from the middle ages. We all had back complains after this week. But the worse of the worst were the cockroaches. There was walking a cockroach in the kitchen, disgusting!!

Last but not least on this site stays that the house 'manager' speaks: english, french, german, spanish, portuguese, italian, dutch, danish, norwegian. But his english wasn't quite 'impressing'. That all in combination with the price it wasn't worth it at all.

Owner's Response: Dear Anonymous - quite strange to receive an "anonymous" review - it is the first time in many years! Good and bad reviews are constant in my property and we dont need to delete bad reviews because it is a way to improve. Your case is different, surelly... In parts - has I dont know who you are , when you stayed and what are your motivations (peraphs one of my direct concorrents)? 1- Suplies are not provided. Welcome packs are paiable apart in every part of the world; 2- Fridge is never switched off; 3- Pool was yesterday with 23 degrees; 4- Cockroaches - never seen this year; 5- English not "impressing" - peraphs I should study a litle of Shakespeare?? 6- Disgusting is the word applied - peraphs you are watching yourself on a mirror? I only need to say this: my villa is very rated on internet - and for your sadness almost 6 months booked, year after year. No more words to state.

Amazing luxurious Villa in a fab location!

  • 5 of 5

Missing our holiday already! Stayed with 11 girls & had the best time in the sun. The villa was clean & very spacious. The pool area was fab. It was in a great area, quiet but relaxing & felt safe. We got taxis to the strip & walked to the old town. Would stay again - great price :)

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13, comprising my wife and myself, 3 sons, 3 daughter-in-laws and 5 grandchildren have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday in this stunning villa. The villa is about 20 minutes downhill walk into the old town and a taxi back cost 6 euros. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes walk away which stocks a good range of products. Even though there were 13 of us we had plenty of room and the 5 bedrooms were large enough for the extra beds we needed. The villa was equipped with everything we needed and maid service was provided on Tuesday and Thursday. The pool was amazing and the children were sad to leave. I would highly recommend this villa, it was a pleasure to meet with Alex, his wife and his parents, thank you for a great holiday.

First and foremost, Albufeira is famed for its beaches, for the countless shades and tones of its rocks and cliffs. This is a place where people live to the rhythm of the great holiday destinations, sunbathing during the day and at sunset flocking to enjoy the restaurants, bars and discos that enliven the night-time hours.

Just a few miles inland and everything changes. The green of the countryside is dotted with almond, fig, orange and pine trees and decorated chimneys stand out against the ochre of tiled roofs. Albufeira boasts beaches where the sand is fine and the sea a turquoise blue sheltered by cliffs which are canvasses painted with a whimsical palette of natural hues. It is for its beaches that Albufeira is internationally renowned, because all of them are different...and they are all equally enchanting. Nightlife, sunshine, beaches and lots and lots of animation are just some of the guaranteed features of Albufeira. Bucolic villages invite you to experience a way of life

Golf: Golf of Salgados, 1,5kms. Vilamoura Golf, 25kms.
