HOUSE IN BAD SHAPE
House itself is located in good place and its nice. However maintenance and customer service/management company is horrible. Fridge didn't work, worst pillows in the world, hard beds, putrid odor coming from kitchen, gas leak. We will be requesting part of our money back.
Thank you very much for your review of your recent stay at Vila Luis.
Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. We greatly appreciate your comments about aspects of the villa.
All properties with gas supply have gas certificate renewed at the beginning of each season and we are in position to confirm that there was no gas leak at all.
We apologise if the comfort of the pillows and mattress were not to your satisfaction and we will take this in consideration for the future. However you should have contacted our team for this matter to provide other pillows for your own comfort.
We always had the best comments about Vila Luis and we feel sorry that it did not met your expectation.
Please contact me directly if you would be willing to give us a chance to turn your experience around. It would be such a pleasure to personally welcome you back to our sunny Algarve.
Lovely spacious villa in good location.
Villa Luis was very spacious and very clean and suited us re the location near restaurants, bars, 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and supermarkets not too far away. Feel the inside of the villa looks grander than it does online.
The downside of Villa Luis was that it needs some TLC. It was extremely clean and spacious and a very grand looking villa, a beautifully clean swimming pool set in lovely gardens which were very well maintained. However feel some improvements could be made to improve it. Blinds in the upstairs bedrooms were of the Venetian kind and were buckled in places and made the rooms look shabby. The doors on the double bed bedroom upstairs onto a small balcony did not close properly or lock.
The WiFi was not brilliant and would only work in the lounge. Our son needed to do some work even though on holiday and it was painfully slow. Although one does not necessarily go on holiday to watch TV we were disappointed that there were not many channels our mistake but we thought the villa had SKY connected and being avid golfers we were unable to watch the Ryder Cup.
We have stayed in the area before and we love the area very much and there are some lovely restaurants one being Sao Domingo excellent food with excellent staff.
A rep from the Office came round on our second day to see if there was anything we needed we only made mention of the WiFi
Overall however the villa is very nice but the owner does need to look at making some improvements to update the property and give it some TLC.
Beautiful villa and good location - very happy with our stay
The property is spacious and offers good accommodation. The gardens and pool are kept immaculately. The cleaning service was very good. Located well for local beaches and also to travel in the local region if you have a car. Would definitely recommend this for others.
Great villa in good location with a fabulous pool.
The villa is a good size and very clean. The pool is fabulous, we paid extra to have the pool heated which was well worth it, especially with three little ones constantly jumping in and out of the pool. The area around the pool is spacious, ideal for lazy pool days.
The villa is a good size, plenty of room for a family of eight. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms which is ideal. Each room has an aircon unit which was great for us because there was a heat wave when we stayed. The villa is cleaned regularly by Rosa who was very pleasant.
The location is great, a 10-15 minutes walk to the beech. The beechs are great, plenty of sunbeds and parosols and three lovely beachside restaurants. If you intend to spend the day at the beech I would recommend booking a table for lunch as the restaurants can get busy.
Closer to the villa is a fish restaurant which is very popular with the locals which is always a good sign. We went one night and whilst the food was great the service did not match the cuisine. I don't think niceties and customer service is high on the agenda, to the point that it was quite funny. Basil Fawlty would have been impressed.
We had a takeout from Mr Singhs which was very nice. A little further afield is Guia, if you like peri peri chicken then a trip to Guia is a must. It's about ten minutes in a cab. There are many 'Frango Houses' in Guia, we researched trip advisor and decided on Restaurant Palladium, which is family run restaurant. The staff were great, even opening slightly earlier for us, and the food was good. Again I would recommend reserving a table.
We also went Zoomarine which is about 20 minutes away in a cab. We bought our tickets at the office were you will collect your keys for the villa. They will also book a cab for you. Zoomarine was great for both kids and grown ups, there is plenty to do and see and well worth a visit.
Overall we had a great time at villa Luis. Everything went smoothly thanks to Florence, owners direct and the staff at the villa management office who were great. I would definitely recommend staying at Villa Luis.
We are very pleased that you and family enjoyed the villa, it is spacious property and the location is great for a relaxed Holidays.
We hope to see you again
Fantastic property in a quite an amazing part of the Algarve.
The property was easy to find, the agents were great and easy to deal with, I will defiantly be considering going back to this villa again! Plenty of room, we paid extra for the pool to be heated, but was worth it, WI-FI was not the best, but on the plus side I binned of my work and enjoyed my holiday with the family.
Excellent property with really good facilities for the whole family.
This spacious fully air conditioned 4 bedroom villa is located in a very pleasant and quiet cul de sac, only 900m to the nearest beautiful Blue Flag beaches of Praia da Galé and Sao Lourenco, and only a few minutes drive to Sao Rafael beach, recently voted the 4th best beach in europe ! Within walking distance there are cafes and a good selection of restaurants with the best fish restaurant in the area just at the end of the road, cafés, and the nearest supermaket (voted in 2011 as the best in the algarve) is just 750m. Short drive to the popular old town and marina of Albufeira, and Guia village famous for Chicken Piri-Piri and other typical meals. Salgados Golf course is also near by. All the family will enjoy a visit to the nearby Zoomarine, Water parks and much more! Our manager's office is just a few minutes drive from the villa, and they have a friendly team available to help you with anything you may need or request for you to get maximum pleasure from your holiday. Golf: Salgados golf course and its luxury SPA is just 5 minutes drive
