This villa was everything it promised to be. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The grounds are georgeous. We dined out twice that week and barbecued the rest. We dined at Julius by the marina. A lovely restaurant and very child friendly. the Cassidy group could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We were paid our deposit back within a week of returning. I would recommend this villa to anyone.
Great stay. Was welcomed by lovely Jackie who was so helpful and friendly. Also kindly left some essentials for us to have lunch.
Villa was beautiful, was clean, spacious and had all we needed including easy wifi. Alarm system was easy to use and we felt safe leaving belongings.
Kerry who we liaised with regarding booking was super efficient and responded quickly to emails in a helpful way.
3 Beautiful pools - just shame weather was not warmer.
We all plan to return next year

We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in September 2014 and on our journey from the airport we became very excited to see what the villa looked like judging the properties we were passing on route....however you could not contain the look of disappointment when we arrived at Casa Cacador....what looks a beautiful building in the photos is actually a huge once beautiful building needing a major lick of paint.
Once inside we chose our rooms to find that they had all nicely made beds with fresh beddings and clean towels, we had no complaints about the bedrooms, however a point must be made on the bedrooms that had balconies...we found these to be extremely dirty and again needed a lick of paint.
The overall house was lovely...the furniture mainly the sofa in the living room and the one in the playroom needed to be thrown away not a deep clean they were filthy and we found ourselves washing sheets to put on them so we could sit in cleanliness.
The kitchen was average however for a villa that holds 16 people I imagined the kitchen to be a lot bigger and more equipped with up to date utensils than it was.
The outside area was by far the main highlight of our holiday...our children loved the pools as did we and they were cleaned by the maintenance men every day who were also lovely!
The gardens were well kept and looked lovely.
If you have any elderly members coming with you I would certainly hire a car or make sure you book taxis in advance as we were told the marina was a short walk when in fact it was quite lengthly for elderly members of our party.
The area was beautiful to walk around and we enjoyed trips up to the old village which is such a pretty area!
The marina is extremely overpriced but as expected...we did tend to eat in a lot of nights because of the time taken to walk to the marina and the price.
There is a beautiful hidden gem on the way to the marina....a bar/restaurant called Chiccos....by far the best place we ate this holiday Chicco himself is one in a million and the food was spot on :)
I forgot to mention there is a roof terrace which should provide a little getaway from the noisiness of down below...however this was also unclean and full of cigarette dumps yuck!

We were a large group of family. The villa is spacious, air conditioned and the pools were lovely. The villa needs a bit of renovation and modernisation. Although the bedding was clean the seating, sofas etc could all do with a deep clean. There is plenty of fridge and freezer space and the hob oven and microwave worked perfectly. The villa is a 20 min walk from the supermarkets and marina and getting a taxi is difficult. Fine if you are just walking but lugging water, shopping etc back was hard work. The beach is about 30 mins away. The marina is great but restaurants like the ancora and those along that strip were much better and were cheaper.the alcohol shop in the marina sold everything you could want!
I stayed with a group of 15 at the villa for 3 nights and this place is fantastic. The contact Kerry was very helpful and quickly provided all information and details.
The villa itself comfortably held 15 and has a beautiful pool. The villa gave privacy and was around 15 minutes walk from the marina at vilamoura. The local management team were very helpful and accommodating.
For a large group the villa is perfect and the basement has a pool table, table tennis, fuss ball and projector screen.
Highly recommended and good people to deal with.
