"I loved this villa, great location and great facilities"
We had the best of both worlds in Villa Sete. It's in a quiet location for relaxing and soaking up sunshine by the pool, but in easy walking distance to the beach. Both Old Town and the Strip are within 10 - 15 minutes walking distance (or a reasonably priced taxi fare). There are lovely restaurants and local bars close by. I hope to stay here again soon.

"Not worth the money"
It's hard to think of anything positive to say
Maybe the transfers arranged by Patrick might be a positive?
The whole villa was in a poor state, and in desperate need of some money spending on it.
As you walk into the villa you get that sudden dread of "I've been ripped off".
Was given the guided tour of villa by Jimmy, he wasn't a bad guy, just had his hands tied.
the sofa's had seen better days and a set of drawers had a smashed top on it
only 1 light working out of 3
Dining room / kitchen:-
villa was for 10 people the table only had 8 chairs and these were 3 different styles
only 1 light working out of 4
This was basic, dusty and very dated
only 1 light working out of 6
The flatroof above kitchen leaked badly during our 1 day of rain,
leaking all over floor and into the plug sockets making washing machine redundant
Basic beds with basic furniture,
Mattresses were very poor
Oh yes all of these were either missing bulbs or they wasn't working
Family bathroom downstairs was unusable as one shower door was missing and it smelt of sewage constantly?
was told by Jimmy this was a problem in the area, not the villa?
Upstairs en suite shower tray would take an age to empty
these bathrooms also had a strong smell of sewage.
Pool and area:-
The pool was heated and the surround patio was adequate
We voiced our disappointment to Jimmy in the strongest terms without being rude.
He to his credit contacted Patrick in Jersey, we were offered another villa.
Jimmy came in his transit van to take two people to view the offered property.
to but truthful the villa offered was very nice and had a pool but was unheated.
This too had it bad points and was not suitable for my family
it was placed at the end of a cul de sac, 100 mtrs from the noisy strip bars
The main problem was my family (wife, 2 daughters & granddaughter) having to walk past a strip club to get home at night?
Overall we stayed put and made the best of a bad choice of accommodation
Thank god for 6 days of sunshine
We have had nothing but good experiences with Holiday lettings in the past and won't let it put us off using the site again.

"Was once luxury - not now - READ THIS!"
My 4 friends and I booked this villa to celebrate our 40th birthdays. We opted for a large villa as we all wanted space and our own bathrooms! This is a large villa but as the title suggests it was ONCE luxury. The thing that lets the villa down is maintenance. When we arrived we noticed that the grounds were very poorly maintained; the grass was yellow, pool table old, the sunbeds well past their best. There was a persistent smell of sewage in the villa and the standard of overall cleanliness was poor. Hair everywhere! The lounge furniture was old and tatty and the dining room table and chairs had seen better days. The beds were plentiful but the mattresses were really hard and there was no mattress or pillow protectors - which to be honest is quite disgusting. It's a real shame that the owners don't spend a few thousand pounds on maintenance and furniture as the kitchen and bathrooms have quality fixtures and fittings but were, once again, poorly maintained. The pool was cleaned while we were there and we were happy with the outside space.
It's a 15 minute walk down to the busy part of town down a really steep hill. We opted for a taxi back which was only 4Es. The villa is ideally suited for those of you that like the beach.
Would I recommend this Villa? No, not in it's current state. Spend a few thousand tidying it up then yes. It is not worth the money we spent on hiring it. However, it certainly didn't ruin our time together but we were really disappointed - especially as I had emailed the company beforehand and raised my concerns from previous holidaymaker's reports! These were blatantly ignored.
Overall, this was once quality that the owners have failed to maintain high standards. A real shame.

"Villa Sete Albufeira"
Stayed at villa Sete for 10 days. There were 5 in our party.The transfer from the airport was prompt and friendly,I would recomend anyone to use this service should they need to.
We were welcomed by Jimmy, who had bought us a few essentials, which was a nice touch. he showed us around the villa, and answered our questions, explained how the safe worked, all we needed to know really. The villa was spot on, all the bedrooms were en suite,the kitchen was more than adequate for our needs, and the living area was spaceous and comfortable. There is a sky box, but no card, so we received all the UK freeview TV and radio channels.
The pool is well maintained, and is a good size and depth, there are plenty of sunbeds too.The pool table is to one side, all the cues and balls were in good order, the grass isn't very green, but this is down to the fact people walk round the pool table and there's no rain. I would suggest this area be flagged or tiled, but this is not a complaint. the location is ideal, 10 mins walk to the strip or 10 mins walk to the old town. There are plenty of shops/mini markets near by for your shopping very close by, and the villa is in a cul de sac so traffic noise isn't an issue.Would definately visit villa Sete again
Thank you for your review. I appreciate the kind comments yo have provided, and would not hesitate to welcome you back to any of our villas in the future. Kind regards Patrick

"Disappointing as villa is below advertised standard"
Excellent location but villa is poorly maintained and the description on the website is misleading to say the least. The pool was nice but there were no umbrellas & no life ring which is not good when you have young children. When we arrived there was no cot or highchair which had been requested when we booked months earlier. The maid did bring these and spent half hour cleaning them but they were in poor condition. There were no lights working in the upstairs bathrooms & following a phone call to Jimmy these were fixed. We then discovered the dishwasher wasn't working so yet another phone call and an engineer arrived and spent the next 2+ hours fixing it. It had previously had a blocked drain & been disconnected so the company must have been aware of the problem. As a party of 8
with 2 young children we really needed the dishwasher. The pool table is unusable as there are no tips on the cues & not enough balls. As for the table tennis table it doesn't exist as according to Jimmy 'they just get wrecked'! We then went on to discover more lights not working on the terraces & the dining area. A pool cue jamming the patio doors in the dining area as the lock was broken. Showers that don't work if the sprinkler system is on or another shower is in use. Pretty pointless having 5 bathrooms with such a poor water system. We decided to live with these issues as we had already wasted enough of our holiday time chasing up equipment & getting repairs. Its such a shame as could be a lovely villa. Nobody had obviously checked the villa or the booking prior to our arrival or they just don't care as many of the problems we encountered have been mentioned in previous reviews. Oh and top it all the maid arrived half way through our holiday asking for the cot & highchair! I don't know where she thought we were going to put an 11 month old baby, but we obviously refused. Would return to this villa again if the management were to get there act together. But at the moment the website is making false claims and the villa is not worth the price they are charging.
I appreciate that you have provided your comments with regards to the Villa and the grounds. I am saddened that you did not bring these points to our attention as we could have supplied addtional umbrellas around the pool. There are permanent shaded areas which clients usually use if they wish to not be in direct sun. The life ring is located on the wall beside the BBQ next to the pool, this is quite visable and again could have been pointed out if asked.
We have noted the issues that you have raised and although they had not been raised throughout your stay we will ensure that all aspects are to the standard expected.
