Wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5
This is our fifth consecutive holiday in the Algarve, we had previously stayed once before in an apartment and then in other villas, which were OK but not in this league. I have to say that Casajoan didn't disappoint us on any level and actually exceeded our expectations! It was spotless, extremely well equipped and located in a clean quiet residential area, a real home from home and the best villa we have stayed in by far. The garden and pool area are excellent, plenty of loungers were provided and most evenings we just sat out by the pool chatting or reading and sampling the local wine! There is a small supermarket just a 5 minute walk away which came in very handy, also the villa had off-road parking on the drive which we found useful for loading the car before going off to the beach for the day. All in all we loved our stay at Casajoan and we will definitely recommend it our friends. We will be back!

Cracking villa!

  • 5 of 5
I booked at the last minute and was so glad I did. The villa suited my wife and myself perfectly. It was immaculate and everything we needed was provided, the TV worked OK for us although we never really watched it as we spent most of our week touring the area.

The Villa management team were a handy backup if needed and will most definitely come here again.

Thanks for letting us stay!

downgraded comparison

  • 3 of 5
We had stayed at this lovely villa twice before, and indeed even this time, having a great stay, lovely pool, comfortable interior, nice central location.

However, as we had two previous years staying at this exact villa, to compare this year with, we do have a few things to say about how we feel the property has been 'downgraded' from the listing details

Never saw any rep - despite the villa booklet informing of a visit on the Monday, and indeed, even phoning all the numbers in the book, and emailing owner direct, never got any reply, to the issues we had

major grip - villa is listed as satellite tv and wifi. This was a joke. previous years, this WAS the truth and was an excellent service. This year, all of this was being operated through an Optimus 4G router, with ONE bar maximum at any time. TV was then an internet box for streaming channels. ALL COMPLETELY USELESS, unless you want to watch tv as it jerks, stutters, freezes all the time, and have an internet connection that at best, is just better than pre-broadband speed. This is a major downgrade to the previous excellent stays we had. Even the 'residents' comment booklet at the villa, had this as an issue listed. We would not be back if this stayed like this, and had we known how bad it was, we would not have booked this villa. A little deceptive of the owner, which appears to be a cost cutting exercise.

Also, there were various bulbs in the lighting around the house, which had not been replaced when they blew. The pool lighting for evening swims did not work, even the garden security lights failed to work.

All minor points apart from the TV and Wifi, but it did take the edge of an otherwise enjoyable stay in our most favourite country, Portugal

Road noise had increased dramatically, with lots of heavy trucks and boy racers whizzing by, and it was an absolute joy?? to be woken every morning by the wolf howling of a neighbours dog every morning at 6am.

If you have kids who love their ipads and internet connections, dads that want to get their emails, and mums that want to catch up with the soaps in the evening. Look elsewhere unless the owner sorts this really bad service out. The listing details in the villa sites also need to have an honest description of these services. If this doesn't mater to you, its a lovely villa to stay at.

Owner's Response: The villa is not “downgraded” nor is there any cost cutting. We are not deceptive, do not lie and we do not knowingly provide false information. His main complaint is that he was unable to watch TV. At no time during his stay did the Villa Team recieve any contact about this issue. A standard welcome letter was left in the villa for Mark as they were returning guests on a 3rd stay, in our experience this is preferred. We contacted Mark 4 days after he left to ensure that they enjoyed their holiday. He replied negatively 9 days after he had returned home. Apparently he had tried to contact the Villa Manager about the TV on the first day and could get no reply, strange, as this mobile is monitored 24/7. Apparently he sent us an email that eve, this was never received. Mark did experience the first of the winter storms, these storms can cause surges which often blow bulbs, this is not uncommon. Again, these issues were never reported. This was picked up by the maid after he left and the bulbs were replaced from the villa stock.
The comments regarding road noise and a neighbour’s dog are not really fair. Our villa manager could have investigated this but as it was never reported nothing could be done. Occasional road noise is beyond our control, has never been an issue for previous guests and is completely subjective. Mark says that he would not have returned for a third time if he had been made aware of the TV changes. Sky relocated to a new satellite in Feb 2014 and UK SKY TV is no longer available anywhere in Southern Europe. We employed a professional company at a cost of several hundred euros to install an alternative system that would allow identical access to UK TV. It appears the broadband provider could not cope with demand, this was totally beyond our control and as Mark never reported we could not even attempt to deal with it. Casa Joan is very popular and this is the first negative feedback received. We simply fail to understand why Mark chose to wait until he was back home before making a complaint, especially as the TV was so vital. We have employed a different installation company to remedy this and provide the best service possible. Mark states, Casa Joan “is a lovely villa to stay at”. Everyone’s priorities for an enjoyable holiday are different. We strive to please our guests and our Team work very hard to do this. We can only deal with problems if we know about them, we cannot read minds and assume all is well unless we hear otherwise!

Villa was amazing

  • 5 of 5
Loved this villa, so comfortable, and had everything we needed. Pool was lovely and clean, with a pool cleaner coming once a week. VIlla was extremely clean and comfortable. Would love to return out of season but would need a pool heater. Kids loved the pool and the garden area, especially picking the fresh lemons. Will return, no doubt. Couldn't recommend it high enough.

just what i needed

  • 5 of 5
absolutely great setting, quiet, accessible to all the major shows fairs and pool activities and the sun will not leave you until late at night . a family of four is enough to keep the property busy, didn't need the TV its not what holidays are for, BBQ area was great. my family will hopefully be visiting Casa Joan again next time we are in Portugal.
If you want an Algarve experience look no further than Casa Joan
