“5 star villa”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We booked this villa as three different families as my sister was getting married at the pine cliffs.

This was a truly modern villa with lots of space, you can request the pool to be heated which we did and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

We were a group of 9 and there was a mixture of adults and children each family had our own space due to the layout of the house, which meant if anyone was an early riser others weren't disturbed.

Finding the villa was slightly challenging but we managed it and the management of the villa were on hand by telephone if we got stuck or there were any problems.

This was a fantastic villa and I would recommend to anyone wanting a modern villa holiday in Portugal

“Amazing Villa”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I'm currently writing this review whilst still at the villa glass of wine in hand watching the sunset.

The villa is pure luxury very modern with all mod cons. There are 9 of us in total, two families with an age range of 17 to 55! The villa has all the space you could need and took to escape if need be. Location wise Albufeira is around 25 euros return in a mini bus just call Sergio from the taxi company at the bottom of the road. Vilamoura is around 30 euros return and 20 mins away.
Supermarket is within walking distance as are some restaurants, although have to say we preferred going to Vilamoura or Albufeira old town(avoid new town unless you are young and wanting to party hard).

The pool is great I wouldn't pay for it to be heated as it is fine. Pool towels are also provided.

I struggle to find any negatives but this is what I have managed to come up with;
Only 2 wine glasses(I think previous guests may have broken them and they have yet to be replaced)
Sooooo many ants(not the villas fault)
Air conditioning didn't work for first two nights however Belita(villa manager) was very good and got the technicians out first thing Monday where we all learnt something new, you must not alter the mode on the air conditioning or they will stop working as they all have to be on the same mode! Press anything but the mode button(trust me you do not want to be without air conditioning at night)

And that's it really, all in all this villa is highly recommended and I don't think we could have got anywhere nicer. We never return to the same place twice but if we did I would not hesitate in booking this villa.

Thanks for your wonderful review with so many details, we are delighted you are/have enjoyed that much your stay with us. That’s our goal.
I wish you have said something about the glasses for us to replace them.
The ants are very common in the gardens/countryside especially with this hot weather. We tend, not to use much repellent, thinking of children playing, bare feet in the grass...
You said “never return to the same please twice”, I’m glad we have more villas for you to choose, because I do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you next year.
All the best. Bélita

“Just perfect, 5 star, all the way.”

We were a group of friends, 9 adults in all. The villa is exceptional in every way. The rooms are all very spacious, with wonderfully comfortable beds, monogrammed sheets and bath towels. The showers are very powerful.
The pool area is large and very well equipped with sun loungers and towels, no need to take your own.
The kitchen and utility room had everything you could possible need, plenty of utensils, plates, glasses
Having stayed in many villa's I have to say this was by far the best, we will be booking again. Just brilliant.

“Fantastic”

Just returned from a week in Villa Maria, there were 8 of us staying 6 adults and 2 children. The villa is amazing, 5* without doubt. All the rooms are spacious with comfy beds and lots of storage space, ensuite a and bathrooms also well equipped and lovely powerful showers.
Nice living space, great kitchen and BBQ area well placed with easy access to the kitchen area. Very secure with electronic shutters on all windows and electronic gate on entrance. Pool area is also fabulous, we paid the extra for pool heating which was nice to have but not essential.
Our contact was extremely helpful, spoke great English and helped us with our enquiries, even after we left when I lost my phone she helped us get hold of the taxi to retrieve it, how lucky for me!
The villa feels remote enough to be quiet and peaceful in the day but is within walking distance of supermarket, restaurants and bars.
All in all a fabulous week and we are already talking about returning next year.

“perfect winter sun break!”

my fiance and I stayed here for a week in Mid-March and although this villa is geared towards larger groups we fell in love with the place so booked for just the two of us! villa is very comfortable and has all you need for your stay. at full occupancy this villa would still allow enough space & the pool and outside seating is great! 5 minutes walk to local shops, restaurants and cafes and a further 5/10 minute walk to two different beaches plus more facilities. a great village to visit with good connections to either old town albufeira and vilamoura. we were lucky enough to have a week of beautiful sunshine and are looking to return with our family again next march! a great winter get away. p.s on finding the property it is slightly tucked away so head towards farmers field and villa is on your left at the end of close.
