Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Paulo

We stayed at the Villa Gouveia from 15th August to 22nd August this year and wanted to thank yourself and your staff for a wonderful experience.

For some of us (myself included) it was the first visit to your beautiful country and Vilamoura was expecially beautiful. We all had a really fantastic time.

The villa was lovely and everyone enjoyed the spacious surroundings.

There was a problem with the door into the downstairs on suite bathroom and the sink in the same bathroom, but this was quickly resolved by the workmen who came out.

It was very reasurring that we could stay until out pick up time of 12 noon for our flight home and we were able to relax and provide Oliver, our 11 month old grandson with something to occupy him, which would have been very difficult had we not been able to stay at the villa.

The transfer drivers were very pleasant and helpful also.

We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for all your help and your correspondence before our visit.

God Bless

Very convenient for the marina, a little dated

  • 3 of 5

A spacious villa with a large pool but it could do with a bit of upkeep and maintenance. The beds are very hard which made sleeping difficult. The windows in 2 bedrooms didn't open which was a problem sleeping and one of the ensuites had a bit of a problem. It's a real shame as this is a spacious villa in a lovely location with a south facing pool and garden close to the marina and in a lovelt quiet location.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, Thank you very much for your comments. In reply: - Regarding the upkeep and maintenance, if you could send us an email with what needs to be done we would be much obliged. This is indeed important to us. - Regarding the beds, this is a matter of opinion and there is not much we can do here. - We have made some paintings and varnishing included in the start of season maintenance works and the maid at the time did report to us that some windows got a bit stiff to operate and we address the situation. Due to the varnish, some windows stood a bit stiff but all are 100% operational. - Regarding the ensuite what was the problem exactly as we don’t have any reports of malfunctions in the bathrooms and the house has been always occupied? If you could also put this on an email, it would be great. I must emphasise that we are not a “web site company”. We have a couple of local offices and several staff to assist you and all our guests. It’s very important that situations are reported immediately, during the stay, either by phone or email, so that we may act promptly and accordingly. Remain yours. Kind regards, Vilamoura-Villas

No air-con and awful beds

  • 3 of 5

The beds in this villa are extremely uncomfortable with small flat pillows, and with no air-con this made it very difficult to sleep. The villa needs updating, and some kitchen equipment ie scissors, bbq utensils, a grill pan for the grill would be useful. The pool was lovely as were the gardens. Spacious villa on the whole except for one of the bathrooms in which the door won't open properly because the toilet is in the way!

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I must say that your feedback upsets me, when we have been in contact by email all over your holidays. As soon as you step in the house, we receive this email from you: “Hi Paulo, We have arrived and it's beautiful. Just a couple of small requests please Can we have some more pillows and more towels please. Perhaps 6 of each? Also one of the keys is bent so we can't access outside from the living room. Thanks Regards “ We have given you more towels and more pillows, as requested and as courtesy since you already had more sets than the number of people required by standard. Regarding the key, it was ok until you arrived, otherwise previous guests would have reported, or if they did not, the maid that came clean the house would have not been able to clean the area that that door leads to. It is one of those things that just happen…but anyway, we solve it soon and free of charge. In reply to your comments: - The comfort of the beds are a personal taste, as I am sure you perfectly know. - The pillows, again, it is a matter of taste, but we did gave you more upon request. - This house never had air-conditioned nor never was advertised with such feature. Fail to understand your comment, unless you did not know exactly what you were booking. - You can send us an email recommending the updates to the villa as we take these very serious, especially when they are valid, and we always bring them to the table when discussing the contracts with the owners. Regarding the extra kitchen equipment and toilet situation, we have no records of you reporting these situations during your stay. Failing to do so, you fail to give us the option to proper assist and help. If duly reported, the situation would have been immediately addressed by our staff, the same way we did with the pillows, towels and key.... I’m sorry, but your feedback is just not right nor accurate. Kind regards, Vilamoura-Villas

Spacious and clean

  • 4 of 5

The property is a great size and met most of our needs though it is tired in areas as were we by the end of the holiday as the beds are not comfortable at all. The mattresses definitely need replacing. The only other couple of minor issues were the en-suite door not opening very far because of the toilet and the shower tray not being overally deep therefore flooding the bathroom if you weren't careful.

Excellent location to walk to Vilamoura. Great base for golf.

  • 4 of 5

Villa was clean and tidy on arrival and well mainatained by the maid service. Pool area is great. We were a group of eight and had plenty of room. WiFi was spotty and the showers flooded pretty easily. Overall very happy and the villa was ideal for our purposes - a base to play golf for 5 days and enjoy the Marina/Quarteira nightlife.

Lovely family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Overall everything was as advertised on the website

We were a bot disappointed upon arrival that the pool required cleaning and this was not done till over 24 hours later following a phone call

The villa itself was lovely but I was surprised to find that there were no dishwashing supplies (liquid -dishcloth or dishwasher tablets) , a small thing that could have been avoided for the cost of less than 10 euros. We also had to buy our own additional toiloet rolls, some extras would have been nice

The photos were a true reflection of the Villa and the cleaner Maria was wonderful, she came most days and was thorough and friendly.

A word of warning that the sprinklers come on early morning so move anything

you have on the grassed area

We had a little problem with ants on kitched worksurface bit just bought some powder from supermarket

All in all a great holiday (despite weather being mixed), a steady 15 min stroll to the Marina (short cut past church & flats opposite junction on main road)

We would consider a return visit

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments. Really sorry about the swimming pool, which was attended immediately after your report. Regarding the personal items, such as dishwashing supplies (liquid -dishcloth or dishwasher tablets), we do not supply this. Regarding toilet rolls, we supply them only on arrival and as courtesy. I have to remind that these are self-catering villas and not hotel or aparthotel. Looking forward to have you back with us. Kind regards, Vilamoura-Villas

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was really lovely spacious, clean and extremely well kitted out for all needs, the maid service was brilliant, the pool perfect for our needs and quite safe for the children with plenty of garden to soak up the sun on the sunbeds. The villa was well appointed a 10 minute walk to the marina, beech, and a short 5 minute walk to a large well stocked Spar supermarket which had a few little bars, newsagents and a bank in the same area which was helpful. I would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a relaxing break I would also recommend villamoura villas their service was friendly and efficient, they arranged our airport transfers, food on arrival and taxes to the water park midweek. All in all we had a great holiday.
