Lovely villa in the back end of the Praia Del Rey Marriot resort in Portugal.
The Silver Coast area was new for us and the beaches and countryside were a revelation with Obidos Lagoon area being a particular favourite from paddling in the wild sea, swimming in the warm & calm lagoon through to birdwatching from the perimeter footpaths.
The Villa is very well appointed with sleeping and facilities for 6.
The pool is adequate although the perimeter hedge is a bit grubby when trying to retrieve a lost toy or ball and the pump unit is noisy - not sure why it is timed for midday operation when a late evening time may be more suitable.
The garden furniture was nice quality with no sight of a dodgy white plastic chair!!
The only negatives which prevented a 5 star review were...
The onsite agents had to be prompted for responses including being 5 days late changing the linen although each time I contacted the owner we had a prompt response.
There are a lot of flies in the area which are annoying and require the villa doors to be closed most of the time.
Also, there is no Broadband or Internet facility so if you need connectivity I strongly suggest you take a MiFi unit and purchase a Portuguese Vodafone SIM from Leclerc for 10€ and top up 15gb for 15€ - not bad value with good connection and speed.
All in all, a great facility and area and will definitely consider returning in the future.
