Good accommadation

We stayed at the Vila Gaivota for six nights in October 2008. We booked a one bedroom apartment, but were given a two bedroom appartment on arrival. The accommodation was very spacious and clean, although could of done with an update. The location was excellent, although you do need a car to get around, this was not a problem for us as we always pick up a car at the airport when we holiday in Portugal. We did find that the water pressure in bathroom in double bedroom was very low, and you were unable to run a shower in both bathrooms at the same time. This was not a problem for us as there was only two of us, but could be a problem if staying with a family. We would highly reccomend the Vila Gaivota if you enjoy a holiday in a peacefull beautiful little resort, with fantastic scenery. We would certainly go back and book this accommodation in the future.

Vila Gaivota Review

Stayed 1week August 08 1 bedroom apartment. Clean and very nice location with lovely view of beach over cliff/hill. 10 mins walk to lovely beach (we went to 6) or 5 mins down rugged path. Small supermarket and nice pools, but was not as cleaned compared to other hotels we stayed in. Also, no kettle or hair-dryer and no air-con so children had mosquito bites. Recommend car hire as it is far from the supermarket-4 km and everywhere else. Wet water-Slide & Splash 15 mins by car, 18 adult 14.50 children good but 45 mins queus. Stayed all day & had 8 slides. Nice hilly location to unwind, with washing machines and iron+board. Bring insect bites cream. Prepared to wait, we arrived at 2.00 p.m apartment was not ready until 5.00 p.m. eventhough had emailed 1 week before.
