Stopped here for 3 nights in April with 9 women for my hen do and had the best time ever. We used the manager of the villa for transfers and they very kindly stopped off at a supermarket and let us fill up for our stay. The villa was spotless when we arrived and the pool was preheated so we could get straight in. The villa is spacious and seemed to stay cool which was great. There was everything we needed including the pool table and table tennis. Loved the fact that the villa was private and we didn't have anyone looking over us.
A couple of little things that need to be done to the villa one been that in the down stairs bedroom bathroom door didn't shut properly and obviously leaked water a bit. The women who stayed in that room said that now and again could smell the drains. This is the only area of the villa that needed a bit of work doing to it. The only other issue we had was that there is only one key to the villa which become a challenge when 9 people all want to come home at different times. There is the lock safe outside but we found this a challenge after a night out.
Overall though had a fantastic trip and would definitely come back here again.

I never usually leave reviews but we have just returned from a 5 day break (hen party) and after the helpfulness of the staff I felt I needed to. The villa was beautiful and accommodated 9 of us comfortably. Miguel met us at the villa after a 35 min transfer from Faro airport and showed us round, he gave us a list of contacts and his number so that we could call him whenever. The villa is within walking distance of the strip and bars and oura beach that is lovely and sandy. The beach across from the villa is a shell beach but still beautiful. The old town can be walked to but we got a taxi from the villa for under 5 euros. The old town is beautiful and has so many gorgeous shops and places to eat. The new town (strip) is buzzing in the evening and seems to get busy from 10pm onwards. During our stay one of our party lost her passport, unfortunately wasn't put in the safe that's provided. Miguel took her free to the police station and did all the talking and she got the relevant paperwork. On the Monday at 9.30am he picked her up and took her to get an emergency passport, staying with her and putting her mind at rest. He is such a lovely man and made everything so straight forward and saved the day literally! So a massive thankyou to Miguel! We wouldn't have any doubts about returning to Villa Forte or albuferia it was a beautiful villa with fantastic facilities and handy for everywhere. Same again next year!
9 girls for a hen weekend stayed. They arranged transfers for us from and to the airport.
Clean villa with plenty of rooms. Had everything we needed. About a 10 minute walk to the strip which was fine. All in all a great weekend and a perfect place to stay for what we needed!
A group of friends and I stayed at this villa in the 1st week in September. We were greeted at the airport by Miguel and Jimmy who were amazing throughout the duration of our stay. When we arrived they showed us around the vill and told us about the area and told us not to hesitate to contact them, we did contact them throughot our stay and they were very accommodating taking us to the marina in order to make a boat trip that we had planned.
The villa itself is lovely, the the lounge was a nice size for everyone to relax in. All bedrooms had an en-suite which was ideal. The villa had a bbq which we made use of one afternoon. The garden space is a good size, my frienda felt the pool was a bit cold but that wasnt really an issue. The location is pretty good..a few minutes walk from the strip and not too far from the local shops. All in all was a lovely villa and the service provides was amazing.
Iam just back from Villa Forte and we all had a wonderful time. The villa is fantastic and so much room. All of the rooms have air con which was a lifesaver due to temperature of 30 degrees. The heated pool was very good and the pool and table tennis was popular with my sons and their cousin. Miguel who picked us up at the airport showed us how everything worked and drove us around Albufeira to show us were things were.
All in all I can't rate highly enough 5***
