My family of 10 stayed at villa century for a week in October. The villa was a great base if you want to hit the strip (5 minute walk) and about 6 mins in a taxi to the old town. The villa was lovely and spacious but some areas are tired and in need a makeover but overall we had a relaxing time.
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.
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.
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.
