We have just returned from a week at this stunning villa. We were two couples with a toddler each and have had the best week. The villa is situated on a golf resort with absolutely stunning views all around. Everything we could have possibly needed was already in the villa. It had a beautiful great sized heated pool and fabulous jacuzzi which we used daily! The bedrooms were large and well equipped with extremely comfy beds and all ensuite. The kitchen was fully equipped with absolutely everything we needed as was the lounge area. It was extremely clean and also cleaned during our stay. The owner had even supplied and fitted stair gates for little escapees, high chairs, cots and cot bedding. There was an amazing terrace where we had breakfast every morning and a fab bbq which we used every night. The villa itself requires a car for getting around but the area is gorgeous and nice and chilled, perfect for us and our little ones. Thanks again for superb accommodation and a brilliant holiday we hope to return very soon! …
Stayed in the villa for a week with a family, place was great, clean, tidy everyone enjoyed the stay. Resort was amazing with a great view from the pool area. Nearest beach was 5min away. Would love to come back again. …
Stunning 3 bed villa with pool- Golf & Beach
we recently stayed in this beautiful villa and was absolutely delighted with our time. Initially, we were concerned about the location of the villa so close to the golf course, maybe getting a golf ball in the pool ! The owner said there would be no issue. When we arrived the owner had written a welcome guide. We followed it and she gave us great restaurants and beach bars to visit. It was our first time to visit the area and we got to know it really well as a result of her efforts. The view from the villa onto the golf course was like a picture. We sat every morning on the terrace having breakfast and in the evening we would have great sun sets.
I can truly recommend this villa to anyone. it has everything you need and more to make your holiday special. I really loved Salema the local fishing village and the restuarants. We will definitely be back. A great find. Thank you …
Fantastic first class accomodation, exactly as described
A lovely house to stay in, spotlessly clean and everything maintained to the highest standard. Comfortable beds, great bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen.
In a great location being next to the lovely pool, with outdoor seating.
Also Wifi which worked! Fantastic! …
Excellent Villa in a fantastic location
Great Holiday - The villa was great with loads of room and a superb swimming pool on a great Golf and leisure complex - very peaceful with some great towns and beaches a very short distance away - we will be booking again 100% …
Great place to stay
This place suited us well. We do not like to stop in hotels but don't like slumming it either.
The house was very smart and clean with plenty of space for the 4 of us
The beds were comfortable (which is unusual from our other experiences) and the furnishings were of a high standard.
The pool was a reasonable size and clean and the area was nice and quiet at night.
Short walk or drive to the local supermarket which was a decent size and resonably priced.
There were a good selection of resturants in Salema, only a short drive away.
Only dissapointing thing was that the Italian resturant on the resort was not open (i think it opens in late June) and we were there in late May
This place will not suit you if you want night life, clubs and boozing but it's great if you want to switch off and relax in comfort …
Villa Palmeiras Private infinity pool, Jacuzzi Spa, Games room, Air conditioning
Fantastic villa for a group of family or friends
I cannot rate this villa highly enough. Plenty of room for everyone to do exactly as they please. There were seating and sun loungers for all and the added bonus of all five bedrooms having their own en-suite, plus a couple of extra bathroom/wc's. All air conditioned if necessary and a view that the photographs do not do justice to. We found a wonderful local restaurant in Budens and a couple of cocktail bars in Salema, both of which were a very short and cheap, taxi ride away. A Jacuzzi and BBQ just added to the experience. Brilliant. …
Villa Rosa, Private Pool, Private Garden, Air conditioned throughout
Villa Rosa is a superb villa, one to come back to again and again.
We stayed at villa Rosa in September. We were extremely impressed with the size of the villa and the decor, it really was quite luxurious. The lounge and kitchen are on one level and are both very spacious. There are 2 balconies on this level and a garden area with more seating. So you get the sun 3 sides. There are three very spacious bedrooms downstairs which all lead to the pool area. The pool, whilst not huge, is more than adequate for our needs. The garden and the pool were both tended while we were there.
A cleaner came halfway through our stay and the place is immaculate.
The area is very quiet and you do need a car - there are so many superb beaches to visit, Salema in particular which is only 5 minutes away.
Victoria, our contact there, is a delight to deal with. We are most definitely looking forward to staying at Villa Rosa again this year. …
Deluxe Golf Villa w/ pool+WiFi
Fantastic holiday in a beautiful villa!
We have just spent a lovely week in the Western Algarve staying at villa 149 on Parque da Floresta. It was our first holiday with our six month old daughter and we were naturally anxious about our first holiday together as a family.
However, everything worked out perfectly. The villa was clean, beautifully appointed, with far reaching views out over the stunning national park and mountains through 180 degrees to the sea. The weather was not too hot and we enjoyed some lovely walks in the countryside nearby. We hired a car and although we did not use it a lot but you do need one to get to the beach.
We enjoyed splashing about in the heated pool with our daughter.
Resort Rentals provided us with a travel cot, high chair and also a buggy which meant we did not have to bother bringing ours with us. …

Great family holiday in the Algarve
Just stayed in a lovely apartment on the Parque de Floresta golf course in the western Algarve. Very spacious accomodation finished to a high standard. There were great facilities in the resort itself, even though I have no interest in golf whatsoever. Good restaurants and bars with spa facilities also, so something for everyone. Our 4 year old daughter was as happy as we were. There are also plenty of activities in the surrounding area without the need to travel very far. Zoomarine and Lagos zoo were among our favourites but if you just want to go to the beach then you will be spoilt for choice here. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting an enjoyable, affordable holiday with very easy access from most UK airports :-) …
Nice apartment in a good location. Shared pool was clean and large enough to swim. Would need a hire car to travel unless you were content to sit on the complex all day. Enjoyable experience and would go back. …
Perfect getaway for all the family
We spent a wonderfully relaxing 10 days at Villa Jóia in July - a fantastic villa in a great location, which really feels like home from home. Highly recommended!
The villa is clean, spacious and equipped with everything you need - the thoughtful extras such as beach towels are much appreciated. The rooftop terrace is perfect for an early morning coffee or watching the sun go down, and we enjoyed many evenings on the terrace.
You don’t have to go far for a great day out - the beaches on the rugged west coast are spectacular with waves perfect for body boarding, or if you head for the south coast you will find beautiful and extensive sandy beaches. Lagos is well worth a visit, for boat trips or just walking round the old town, our particular favourite was Salema which is only 10 mins away offers fantastic restaurants and a pretty little sandy beach.
We would love to go back again; it was a perfect getaway for all the family. …
