Not knowing what to expect due to previous reviews, we were really happily surprised when we arrived. The ground floor apartment we had was huge and cool (although no air conditioning for the hotter months but as it was the bottom one the overhead balcony kept it cool so no issue at all). Loads of storage and room for 6...

Worst place I've ever visited! We stupidly booked before reading reviews and then just thought we'd give it a try but how wrong was we! We arrived late evening on Friday 5th and it took us a little while to get checked in, when we finally got given the key and walked down to our apartment, there was a creepy...

Do not waste your time booking here! The WORST place I have ever been. Booked last minute for my 24th birthday, unfortunately without reading reviews first. When arriving on Wednesday morning we went to reception which had around ten flies flying around in a circle in the middle of the room (I know flies can't really be helped) the woman...

This is a basic place don't expect anything more. Only one cockroach in the whole week which I was rather impressed with. Not another bug in sight. Bit of a delay actually getting into our room on day of arrival for a series of different excuses. Most uncomfortable bed I've experienced in any apartment, springs etc. Just a bit boring...

When we arrived at the accommodation that we had booked we were told that they overbooked and we were being sent to Cheerfulway Minichoro. It was 10.30pm and we were ready to relax! We were extremely put out by this. We showed the staff member our booking confirmation which was with Vila Alba. Her boss was on the phone and...

I have just returned from a two week family break in Portugal staying at villa alba (we left on the 29th). We arrived in the afternoon so got our room key and found the apartment to be a major disappointment. The room we were given was very dated and in need of some TLC and a lick of paint. We...
