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.

Few destinations have the fame and allure of the Algarve - the luxurious stretches of beaches and cliffs that span Portugal's south coast are simply stunning. But Portugal has more than a heavenly climate and breathtaking bays to offer the energetic traveller. Lisbon's blend of contemporary culture and rich history makes it a must-see. And if city life isn't for you, let sea breezes whisk you off to the subtropical island of Madeira.
Picking a holiday rental in Portugal is a breeze: would you like a pool, a sea view, or both? In the Algarve, villas predominate - finding a whole ‘casa' to call your own is easy if you prefer self-catering. If you'd rather immerse yourself in urban life, Portugal's city centres are packed with attractive apartments.
Portimao, on the divide between the western and central Algarve, is your gateway to an unforgettable beach holiday. The Praia Da Rocha and Praia De Alvor are vast expanses of unspoilt white sand that slope gently towards warm, turquoise water. The beaches are so long that you won't have to fight for a spot.
The energetic sort will want to tour the Alvor Boardwalk - an incredible wooden walkway that will carry you through Portimao's wetlands (complete with wild flamingos) to where the Odiáxere estuary meets the sea, and then back along the beach for good measure.
Families in search of adventure would do well to leave the beach and step aboard the Santa Bernarda. This twin-masted pirate ship is the most exciting way to explore the many coves and caves of the coast.
No matter how long you stay, Portugal's capital, Lisbon, will keep you entertained. An enormous central plaza lined with 18th-century buildings in classical style, the Praca do Comercio is an excellent starting point. You might need to sit down and recover after taking it all in! Luckily, the locals will be happy to serve you everything from coffee to fine Portuguese wines in the cafés and bars that surround the square.
On a cooler day, it's well worth climbing the Cristo Rei: an enormous statue of Christ across the river in Almada that gives unparalleled views across Lisbon and the Rio Tajo. From there, you can be sure you haven't missed anything.
