Family from Pensilva, United Kingdom Aug 2014

This property is neither stylish nor charming, on arrival we were met by the agent with the key as we were a little lost, which enabled us to find the last little bit of the journey. On entering the property we were met by the overwhelming smell on mould and damp, pulling back all the doors and shutters revealed just how awful the villa was, blue and green mould growing happily on the inside doors, the same combination of mould spoors and damp equally at home on the soft furnishings and furniture. During the week we were there we had to carry the sofas and cushions out onto the patio into sun to relive the damp and smells. The patio that had raised boards nails and screws poking up and out loose decking and even broken glass on it. There is no way you could bring young children there for a safe holiday, and trust us you would not have wanted to use the slime filled never cleaned BBQ area. As for the safety and cleanliness of the inside , forget it, wires poking out of walls with know ends, loose plug sockets. On inspection of the mattress in the main bedroom we found it was covered in spurious stains and black on the underside with mould. The smell on the first night was overpowering , made only worse by the fact that the advertised Air Con did not work! Day two of the holiday was spent entirely washing the stained and dirty bedding that had other peoples hairs on it. There was not one bed that had clean bedding on it, We actually went out an purchased our own bedding that day. All sinks bar one leaked so when the plugs were removed the water came more or less straight through on to the floor. Not once could we use the main shower, the door was broken, it would not slid open so nobody could have got in it. To be frank we are not sorry, none of us wanted to doge the pubic hair that had been left behind. All in all the villa was dirty mouldy and smelt. The first full day of our holiday was spent cleaning and washing. Getting in and out of the electric gates proved to be fairly eventful, obviously the battery was on its way out on the key pad, we would only on the odd occasion, be able to shut it once back and then it would shut on its own. We did have a so called cleaner pop by twice whilst we were out, they managed to give us two clean towels but also seemed very good at hanging the dirty ones straight back up.
All in all it was probably the worst value for money you could have had, it doesnt come cheap at all and to advertise it as it is, is just plain lies. Pictures tell a complete different story, so be warned. We certainly left it cleaner that we found it. We certainly feel robbed, and we certainly wont be going back.
We love the area weve been before, but wed never go back to these or this villa again. Mr & Mrs Andrew Wilson.

Reply from Vilamoura-villas

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Wilson,It’s with tremendous disappointment I read your comments.We do find this house, Villa Academia, to be a rather nice house and also very well kept and maintained, as all our properties are (aprox. 68 in Vilamoura area).The service we provide is nowhere comparable to any others you might find in the area. We have 2 offices, working 7 days a week with many staff in the spot to promptly assist and support our guests needs and requirements.We do feel sorry that you have not reported any issue while you were here, so that we could immediately assist you, in any way needed. When this happens, we believe that all is well, with our guests and their accommodation, especially when the maids are also going to the houses on regular basis and nothing is reported to them either. You could even been moved to another houses if available....I must say we complete disagree with your feedback, particularly the way you choose to express it. We are a serious company operating for more than 25 years, and our goal is indeed the client satisfaction.Kind regards,Paulo Proença
