We didn't end up staying at this villa as two weeks before we was due to go we was told that there was an issue and they couldn't make it safe for us in time, so they were moving us to Villa Collum, which was five minutes from Villa Century. I was assured by the owners (Columbia Estates in Jersey) that I would not be disappointed and was directed to Property reference 63850, to view the villa. All looked ok but I was still very disappointed as this was not my choice of villa but we didn't really have any choice. Well, disappointment was not the only thing we faced upon arrival, so here we go................. The outside pictures are completely false as they look nothing like how the villa looks today; there is cheap plastic sunbeds, a plastic patio table ( not the Rattan Furniture in the pictures) and no outside shower, lawn area or lovely big BBQ. Incorrect inside description as follows:- Only one bedroom with double bed, no open fire, no CD player, no DVD player and decor completely different. Defects:- smell of damp and mould when entering the villa, dangerous exposed tile on the edge of one of the stairs and severe mould and mildew in two of the bedrooms, bathroom and especially the wardrobe. The area was very noisy and dirty, as we were on one of the main runs to "The Strip" and we even had glass bottles and a kebab thrown over our fence that landed in the pool, there was also broken glass everywhere and the smell of urine was disgusting. We decided to go and have a look at Villa Century and was expecting to see it empty, but of course it wasn't, so they had obviously told me a bunch of lies about being unsafe as there was a family in there with children! However, on a plus point, the maintenance side in Portugal, was excellent as they did respond and deal with the issues very quickly and did come eventually to take care of the mould, even though the chemical smell was just as bad for a few days. The Owners (Columbia Estates) should be held responsible for misrepresentation as they are falsely advertising pictures of properties that are not current pictures as we was told that Villa Collum was changed from a 5 bedroom to a six bedroom over three years ago.

Large Group from Ipswich , United Kingdom Jun 2018

We stayed at Villa Century for my friends hen party and could not fault it for what we needed, I have seen some negative comments regarding facilities etc. stating the sun beds were old and worn and there was a small crack to one of the floor tiles - no it's not 5 star luxury so don't going if you are expecting this; but the rooms were spacious, clean, everything (if not brand new) was in good working order, towels / hairdryers etc. were supplied and we were close enough to bars / restaurant's etc. but tucked away from all of the hustle and bustle, the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help, they also arranged a mini bus to and from airport and into the old town which was very helpful, the pool was a lovely size and perfect for the 10 people that stayed, would recommended for anyone wanting this for a hen party or group booking.

Family from Brostol, United Kingdom May 2018

I first stayed at this property some 8 years ago, shortly after its refurb. The property was immaculate and as it is still described as a luxury villa, assumed the upkeep would be paramount. I can not describe the disappointment.
Starting in the kitchen, the dishwasher is missing an arm and therefore doesn’t work. The door of the washing machine is broken. The plinths are damage and have been patched up with a plank of wood. The beautifully tiled floor has various cracks and holes (probably caused by the broken pockets on the pool table allowing the balls to fall directly on to the floor). The kitchen utensils are scarce and of poor quality.
The TV in the lounge area was circa 1995 and the DVD didn’t work, which disappointed the children who had bought a variety of films to watch.
Outside, the patio and pool area need a total revamp. The tiles around the pool are uneven, meaning the children in our party had to wear shoes the entire time. The furniture is old and shabby, showing no resemblance to the pictures on line. The outside dining area chairs were faded and frayed, with one missing and being replaced with a plastic chair. The Bbq has seen better days with the grill not fitting when it gets hot.
The hot water supply only lasts for approximately 3 showers, leaving the remaining 6 occupants to have cold showers. As the property boasts a capacity of 14 occupants I am baffled as to why the boiler is unable to cope.
I made a call to ‘Jimmy’ at the time of my stay and left a voicemail, which remains unanswered....
I have also raised these issues with the owner, but no response to date.

Perfect for a long weekend for my sisters hen do. Villa is so big and the pool is lovely. Walking distance to both the strip and old town.

Family from Cheltenham , United Kingdom Apr 2018

We had a lovely stay .Villa had lots of space . The only faults we found was the shower in the Annex was not good ,not enough hot water for 12. Could have done with more blankets . There was a couple of days with no internet and Tv but it was quickly sorted .Other than that is was a good week .

12 Jun 2013 “Lads Break in Portugal” Myself and 3 friends stayed for a week at the Villa Century in May and enjoyed the stay that much that we are planning on going back next year. The villa was spacious, clean and in a great location. The pool was clean and refreshing and we used the BBQ on 3 days out of 7. A short walk takes you to a Portuguese supermarket where you can stock up on necessities. The famous "strip" is just 5 minutes away and I would say the "old town" is just a 20 minute walk away.

08 Apr 2013 “A great weekend away!” Myself and 7 friends stayed in this Villa for my hen weekend and we had a brilliant time! The villa is in a central location really near the strip with its bars and clubs and the old town isnt far either. The villa itself was lovely with a great pool area. The villa manager Jimmy was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble which was great! Thanks again for a great weekend!

03 Mar 2013 “Great Location & Nice Place” I booked this Villa with my friends (all lads) - we booked for the middle of February and were a little skeptical at first about the Villa, but I have to say first and foremost, what a great location this is in... The villa is well-secured with gates and a perimeter fence and the place was very clean indeed. We had a small problem with hot water, but this was rapidly rectified by Jimmy who was on hand in literally minutes and fixed the issue... The pool was a little bit cold to go in, but it was clean and is just great to relax on the loungers next to it... Do not be worried about key pickup - this was outlined clearly when speaking to holiday lettings and Jimmy (The villa manager) - we got in within seconds. Jimmy had also kindly left us some biscuits, a bottle of wine and some tea and coffee with milk in the fridge - its the little things! The interior of the villa is great, clean and the rooms have heating and air con, which can easily be controlled. The annexe of the Villa is also great and kept to a high standard. All in all, we were only there for a weekend, but due to location, cleanliness and great maintenance, we would love to return one day... Thanks to holiday lettings for the booking... Security deposit was refunded promptly via Paypal after the trip and we found it GREAT value for money! Dan

10 Sep 2012 “Outstanding and hugely memorable holiday. Strongly recommended.” Prior to even stepping in the door of our villa we received great hospitality from the property leaser. There was no fuss in getting to the villa which is in a prime location. We were delighted with the service we experienced and I found they went beyond my expectations. A lot of effort must go in to making sure their clients have a wonderful time and they valued our custom. The property was spacious and extremely well up kept. I feel it would be suitable for any sort of group from young families to older travellers. I found it very secure and it was nice to be put at ease from the beginning. We enjoyed the private swimming pool and the pool table, which was great fun for us all. We all commented on our final night on how the villa really surpassed our expectations and really was great value. I would encourage and recommend anyone thinking of a holiday to stay here and will make sure to be returning myself!

To Patrick and the team at holiday lettings A big thank you for our recent stay at the Villa Century, Albufeira, Portugal Although we were only there for a long weekend, we soon felt at home the minute we stepped through the door, the villa had plenty of space for the 7 of us . The pool was clean and the ample space and sun loungers made our first day one to remember. The villa had everything we needed a big fridge, TV, comfy beds, a safe and plenty of clean space. The villa location was exactly what we required, a 5 minute walk to the strip but no noise to keep us awake. From the minute we booked with yourselves to the organisation of the villa/transfers/meet and greet was flawless and even when needed, you were there to go that extra mile to sort out all our needs. Thanks again and l would without hesitation book with yourselves again and recommend you to family and friends.

Prop ref(s) : 63603Enquiry : Villa Century is worth every euro you are charged. Definately one of the best private villa's we have ever stayed at. Exceptionally spacious both inside and out, and well appointed. Plenty of space for kids to play on the property. Very safe. South facing pool / garden & pool cleaned twice a week, plenty of luxury loungers for everyone. Photos dont do justice to this luxury villa. Excellent location too - lovely quiet residential area, only 10 min walk to beach, 5 min walk from strip. Property manager, Jimmy, went far to accomodate every need and request we had - that extra mile stands this villa apart from all others we have been to before. In fact,I cannot recommend Villa Century highly enough. We will definately be advising our friends and family to book with Columbia Villa's in future. Well done, and thank you so much for making our holiday so memorable. Mairead, Co. Limerick, Ireland
