“Excellent stay!” The appartment is a really great one. You can reach both - the old town and the Strip easily (within walking distance), the access to the beach is excellent and the view from the terrace is stunning - something that you want to take home with you! All in all, we really recommend staying this appartment!
I have just returned from a weeklong stay at Villa Sete, the villa was excellent. Exactly as advertised. There were no concerns over security as have been mentioned in previous reviews.
The rooms were all clean and spacious and comfortably accommodated a group of 8 adults. The pool heating did stop working at one point however Miguel quickly got this sorted.
It was well appointed with all you need to enjoy your stay. The location is ideal as both the old and new towns are a short walk away and there are a few smaller shops and bars around the corner.
The only downside with the experience was the booking through Columbia estates. Having booked our transfers with Jim I expected them to be waiting upon arrival, they were not. I called and left a message for Jim which was not returned. We therefore had to arrange a taxi which was more expensive than the transfers we'd booked.
I then called Jim again whilst en route to the villa to advise what had happened and was assured this would not happen again on the transfers I had arranged for the next two parties arriving the following two days, he assured me this was sorted.
Needless to say when two more of the party arrived the following day they called the transfer company and were told they had not sent anyone and wouldn't be doing so.
I would certainly recommend Villa Sete, perhaps not Columbia estates. …
1 Bed apartment on the beach
My family and I had a fab 2 weeks staying here the apartment was clean and enough room for the 4 of us great views from our balcony we would definitely be back
The only thing I would say is may be get some English channels on the television …
Perfect for hen/stag party
18 of us stayed here for my hen do all agreed was spot on. Good location approx 10-15 min walk to both old town and strip.
Plenty of room in bedrooms. Clean and tidy. All the amenities you need.
Pool area good with comfy sun beds.
Contacted manager several times before we went all always replied within a day or 2.
Only thing I would recommend for this villa is more mirrors.
Would definitely return …
Villa Forte, Luxury 4 bedroom
Fantastic villa in a superb location
We travelled to Albufeira with 3 other couples and my 6 month old baby in September 2012 and stayed 7 nights at Villa Forte. The villa is great, just what we wanted and very clean. It was walking distance to both the old town and new town although the walk back from the old town is a very steep hill.
Patrick arranged everything for us beforehand including taxi transfers and Jimmy met us on arrival at the villa.
The only negative points being the pool wasn't heated, we asked Jimmy if this could be done but were told it wasn't possible (this was a blow as it was too cold for my 6 month old to try swimming for the first time). The villa next door had dogs which barked a lot and the smell of dog poo was pretty bad whilst sunbathing. Other than that the facilities were fantastic and fully equiped for the baby too. We used the BBQ one day which was great. I would highly reccommend. …
