“Lovely & clean villa”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Me and my friends had a very pleasant stay in Casa Gonzaga. Although the accomodation is meant for 8 persons, it was no problem that we came with 9. The ninth person slept on the sofabed. The communication with the hostess was good. She arranged our transport from and to the Faro airport. Her friend picked us up with a minibus. She gave us the telephone number of the local taxi company, and some useful tips for our stay (supermarket, bakery, local beach etc.). We appreciated that the house was being cleaned after 3 days.
Furthermore, the location of the villa is nice. With a walk of 10 minutes you reach a very beautiful beach, which is not very touristic. Me and my friends also visited the nightlife area in Albufeira. To get there, we took the taxi (5-6 euro's, 10 minutes), but it is also possible to walk (30-40 minutes). I would definitely return to Casa Gonzaga!

“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at this lovely villa. My partner and i have a 3 year old and grandparents also came with us.
The villa is spacious and very clean. It had everything we needed and all equipment worked well.- a home from home. We had lots of fun in the pool, plenty of sunbeds and parasols. We even had a party for other friends and family so the BBQ and pool were well used.
Great location approx 5-10 mins from shops, restaurants and the beach.
The owner Sandra was very helpful, she arranged our transfers whom the drivers were on time and seemed very efficient. We were able to contact Sandra with any queries we had throughout our stay and she was most pleasant and helpful.
The neighbours were also friendly.
The only thing the villa would benefit from would be a welcome pack to help orientation.
Would definately return to this villa.

very good location for beaches , supermarkets and travelling , .the problems we did have was the map to the villa did not relate to the map,and we had to ask in several places if they knew of the villa,we weren't given a key box number to gain access to the key to let ourselves in , there seemed to be only one aircon controller for the 3 upstairs bedrooms [which during the night caused problems],one of the portable fans wasn't working , the barbeque needed cleaning ,cushions on sunbeds had seen better days,towel rail in on bathroom was hanging off ,though there was plenty of drinking glasses there were not really any of a good size,we found the safe 2 days before we left.i have rented many villas in olhos d agua and felt on this occasion the communication was poor.,this does sound a bit damning but a holiday is what you make it and we did have a brilliant time,would have been far better without the minor issues.would I rent it again [maybe] I have probably been spoilt by the standard of all previous villas ive rented

“Convenient Home from Home.”
Reviewed 4 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Casa Gonzaga is a lovely home, comfortable, clean, spacious and well appointed.
Also well situated, with 2 mini markets almost on the doorstep, but a large supermarket about 5 minutes easy walk from the villa, on the main road through the town, for all your needs. Situated next to that is a a covered market selling local produce like fish, meat, fruit n veg, etc.
In the villa, bedrooms & bathrooms are well appointed, and the linen was changed on the 3rd day.
The kitchen is particularly well equiped, however, we couldnt work out how to make the oven work ? And the coffee machine really does need to be replaced with a better model that works properly.
Minor details though. We still enjoyed cooked breakfasts each morning ! :-)

The outside space,front terrace, pool deck, & small grass area were perfectly fine, with enough furniture & parasols.
The well appointed BBQ area was used once by us, and the results enjoyed by all.
The location is superb. A convenient short walk to the town beach, via a choice of routes, and similar distance to the larger Maria Luisa beach, both approximately 15 minutes.
The choice of bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and beach bars means that you need not leave the town to satisfy your needs.
However, younger folks may crave a little more nightlife. But that is available a very short distance away at Albufera, and "The Strip" in Pria Doura, which is a 5Euro(ish) taxi ride away.
We visited many eateries in the town during our week long stay and were never dissapointed.
This was our 2nd stay in Casa Gonzaga, the 1st being around 6 years ago with two other couples, and this time with our family, the group comprising adults, teenagers, youngsters, and a 7 month old baby.
All were satisfactorily catered for.
