Nice Villa with plenty of space, pool a little small
The Villa Tulipa is a nice spacious property, but does have some shortcomings. The pool is a little on the small side and more of a
plunge pool which gets deep quite quickly.
The property has plenty of equipment in the kitchen and the bedrooms have plenty of storage.
On the down side, some of the items in the property are a bit cheap and tacky. Most notably the kettle in the kitchen which two of our party got burnt with boiling water, one of which required hospitalisation. The other is the plastic table and chairs near the BBQ. One of the chairs just collapsed under me whilst having a meal and I’m not exactly huge. No injuries thankfully, but these very cheap items do detract from what is quite a nice place.
The alarm in the property is also problematic. The remote doesn’t work properly and the alarm fails to turn off until several minutes of high pitched noise.
This are relatively minor fixes and had the management company rep attended the property at any stage, we could have conveyed these observations. On the whole a positive trip with some unfortunate shortcomings
July 2019 - 1 week stay
Wow, what a great villa! Everything was as described in the property details and we just had the best week here.
Our party was 2 adults and 5 kids, all boys aged 6-16 and they never once said they were bored - miracle!
There’s so much space in and around the villa and it’s equipped with all that you need. Could easily have had another 2 people in our party and it wouldn’t have made any difference.
The pool towels supplied were a great bonus and the pool and gardens were all well maintained.
The villa is well located, a few minutes walk to three supermarkets, ATMs, and a couple of cafes. The walk to the beach is less than 10 minutes.
We didn’t hire a car but the management company were on hand to help with organising taxis and couldn’t have been more attentive. A minibus to Zoomarine cost €35 return arranged through Andrea, who again was super helpful and punctual!
We’ll definitely be booking again.
A great family holiday
We stayed at Villa Tulipa and absolutely loved it. The villa had everything you needed and more, very spacious property with a good size pool, enough for us and our 4 kids to enjoy with inflatables. Inside the villa it had 4 large bedrooms each with its own bathroom, the beds were a bit uncomfortable (hard) and they could of easily of fit a king size bed in each room, that is one thing letting the villa down, beds, pillows and bedding could of been nicer! The games room is an added bonus and kept the kids entertained. The villa is over looked by the neighbours straight into the pool from their kitchen window, which isn’t a big deal but they could of put a higher fence up to make it more private. It’s in a great location not far from the beach and supermarket but I would recommend hiring a car, we picked a car up from the airport and the directions we were given were spot on and had no problem finding the office and villa. We used the car every day to go to the beach, supermarket and we drove into Albufeira a few times about 15 minutes drive and we went to Vilamoura which is definitely worth a visit at the Marina which was about 35 minutes by car, (using google maps). There is a bar literary round the corner with friendly people and a small arcade and pool tables, a few more bars and restaurants dotted around but again needed the car. Overall a very good holiday.
Thank you for your appreciation, we're pleased to hear you have enjoyed your stay. We'd love to welcome you and your family again if you ever decide to return to the Algarve.
All the best,
Lovely stay but shower by pool very dirty and beer tins left by back door, dirty coffee filter left
Very nice indeed
The villa was excellent and has everything you need the games room was a bonus
We had an excellent holiday villa was spacious and games room was a bonus. The location is good with restaurants a walk away. A walk to the beach is only a 10 minutes walk away from villa will definitely book again in the future.
