Hi, Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. I have looked at the comments on the Burglary and pool heat issues and would like to clear up these issues that you feel you had.
The burglary was a group of young people on the complex, who chose to leave the window open and go out shopping for the afternoon and were burgled. This could happen anywhere in the world and does happen regularly in the UK. My villa has a lockable secure garden gate with perimeter fencing and security shutters to each of the windows / patio doors and an alarm system linked to the local police. The villa also has a safe fitted in a hidden secure location and to date (touch wood) we have never had an instance.
Regarding the pool heat issue we thought that in the end this issue was resolved. As soon as we were alerted by you that the pool heater had been switched off, we immediately contacted the pool company the same day and the heater was switched back on. Therefore the heater was on as requested for the duration of your booking less the short time taken to contact the pool company once I was made aware. As advised in the Meet and Greet package, the heater could have been turned back on even quicker if the local number for the team had been alerted. It is a shame about the pool heater mistake by the gardener as without this issue it seems you had a fantastic time at the villa and loved every aspect of the luxury villa. We hope to see you return and if you do return, we will offer you a discount off your booking as a gesture of goodwill.

Hi and thank you for your review it is much appreciated and we are glad that you and your family had a fantastic stay at the villa ! It does work out more economical for families to hire a car as it can be offset against the airport transfers, beach runs, supermarket runs and trips out for the day or to restaurants in the evening. The 7 euro charge to Alvor and Praia Da Rocha is reasonable if you like a glass of vino with the evening and choose not to drive but we have found that over a 7 - 14 night stay, the hire car is the most cost effective route. We would love to see you come back again soon as you took great care of the villa :-)
