2 bedroom,1 Bathroom Villa in the popular recently renovated Quinta do Paraiso

I am Roger who manages the property for my parents.
Roger purchased this Bungalow in 2015
Why Roger chose Mato Serrão
We have a long standing great relationship with the Quinta do Paraiso and have been enjoying the area since 1975. The property is in great condition, bright, lovely green views and close enough to the central reception and pool areas to make it extremely easy to move around the resort. The Quinta do Paraiso is very well known and has many tourism awards of excellence and visited by our family for many many years and we love it. The Resort has significantly improved the communal areas and it is truly beautiful. It was an easy decision to invest in this great property.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Wonderful and safe family holidays with on resort site security with something for everyone, and quick access to all the entire Algarve has to offer. It was an easy decision to invest in this great property. Please note: all resort facilities are available to our guests expect reception ..they will assist with all questions and be on hand for any kind of help but do not keep the villa keys..we provide the keys personally during our meet and greet. Same availability as any other guest booking with Carvoeiro Clube. Kids Parc is €12 per day with qualified staff to supervise, €6 for half day. We also now have two sun loungers and umbrella for the villa's garden so you can relax at the villa if you don't want to go to the pool area. Lovely..especially in the evening! ( Not yet shown in the photos which desperately need updating as we have been making improvements to the accommodation as of now during the low season. Also a lovely small BBQ brand new..The villa has a brand new washing machine which as a Mum myself, I cannot imagine going to a self catering accommodation without. The other villas of this type run by the resort themselves do not provide this as standard. The Wifi is great, and the TV also has internet TV so that you can view all the English channels you love and also the news and sports channels. Because we run the villa ourselves, we offer a significant discount to the Resort. My husband Roger and our manager Jeanette are on hand 24/7 and they personally meet and greet our guests and call in emergency maintenance should that unlikelihood ever arise. You will be in very good hands as we have a reputation for excellent support for out guests. If you require anything at all in addition such as extra cleaning if you need more than 1x per week, catering with organic and healthy food option (so you don't have to cook and also don't have to keep paying restaurant prices), hamper of food on arrival, we can quote for all of this separately...
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We arrived at the villa on Tue 7th August, Unpon arrival the manageress informed us that a new toilet seat needed to be fitted, which my husband was then expected to fit!
The rear gate was also broken, leaving us feeling that the villa was not as secure as it should be, my husband again tried to repair it but all we were able to do was fit a small screw which was in no way secure!
There was also a layer of dust all over, which granted some of it was down to the ongoing fires that had been in the area, however cobwebs etc cannot be put down to this? We had to wipe everywhere down before unpacking.
It also states in the bathroom that towels would be changed every 4 days and bed linen every 7, we had neither of these, the fee for cleaning the villa as you leave is extortionate, and we cannot see how it is justified? It stayes that the fee is for a deep clean before the next guests arrive? It had certainly not had a deep clean before we arrived, bath plug was full of grime and hair that we had to try and clean out?
The villa would also benefit greatly from air con being installed, night times especially where suffocating.
The villa has great potential and the garden area was lovely to sit in, however the outside dining set had seen better days and we were unable to sit on the chairs without 1st putting a towel down.
Overall a disappointing stay
Nice 2 bed house with small kitchen, spacious bedrooms, nice living area and 2 outdoor patios.
We enjoyed our holiday, the resort is lovely,relaxed and friendly. A nice walk into town in the evenings or to Praia do Paraiso in morning.Kids enjoyed kids club and pool.
Again, overall we enjoyed our stay and thank you.
On arrival Jeanette was at house and we were at reception so maybe clarify. Jeanette was helpful and friendly.
Lovely family holiday
Villa was basic and a bit outdated, could do with a bit of a refurb, but had everything you needed. It was surrounded by lovely gardens which our young boys loved playing in when not by the pool. The resort is lovely and would definitely reccomend to friends and possibly return again another year. Ate in the onsite restaurant a few times for convenience and received great service and good food. We ventured out to the beach a few times which is a beautiful cove and has amazing seafood restaurants with beautiful views. Everything was within a short walking distance, a bit further for 3 and 6yr old legs but manageable. The reception helped us book some excursions that were thoroughly enjoyed by all the family and were polite and helpful. The only negative thing about the resort was as private villa guests you were treated a bit like 2nd class citizens when it came to certain facilities.
Great base for trips to the beach
We have just returned from a fantastic stay. The accommodation is basic but has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Despite no air conditioning, and the outside temperature nearing 40c on occasion, it stayed cool enough inside. The outside space is fantastic with a couple of little courtyards - one with BBQ the other with a washing line. Plus the shaded veranda with table and chairs and garden with sun loungers.
The location is fantastic with parking to the rear on the villa and just a short walk down the steps to the Italian restaurant and reception, pool etc. Carvoeiro centre is about 15mins walk downhill (and 20mins up steep hill back again!) with plenty of restaurants, shops and town beach. The nearest large supermarket (Intermarche) was just under 10mins drive on the road heading out of Carvoeiro. We didn't eat out often but we did find a lovely fish restaurant, Mar d'Fora, just above Praia do Paraiso, before the hill down into town. Amazing food, stunning views and great service. The beach below is also fantastic. It has an intimate feel and has no facilities so feels like a hidden gem. Our toddler loved the big shallow natural paddling pool at low tide and the rock pools where he found loads of crabs, shrimps and fish. However its not great for swimming due to the rocks and the beach/sand does disappear completely at high tide, so be sure to check the tide tables for low tide before heading there! Other beaches we drove to and enjoyed were Praia do Caneiros (get there early to park close by but great caves) and Praia do Vale Centeanes for a big sandy beach!
Quinto do Paraiso resort is also lovely. Great pools, lovely cocktails, friendly staff and never felt too busy.
Huis niet zo mooi als de beschrijving
Helaas viel het huis nogal tegen op grond van de beschrijving. Alhoewel de locatie leuk is, rustige plek met tuin in een quinta met voorzieningen zoals zwembad etc, zijn met name de keuken en badkamer na 30 jaar aan een behoorlijke renovatie toe. Het tuinmeubilair was klaar voor de schroot maar na een klacht van onze zijde werd dit direct vernieuwd. Positief was dat de woonkamer wel was vernieuwd en de aanwezigheid van een open haard en internationale tv. Echter in het algemeen hadden we de indruk dat het huis werd verhuurd met een minimale investering.
In die Jahre gekommende Unterkunft
Die Unterkunft ist sehr in die Jahre gekommen, besonders Bad und Küche. Den Kühlschrank muss man mit einem Korken verriegeln, sonst öffnet sich dieser.
Im Bad ist die Badewanne sehr abgenutzt und verkalkt.Die Armaturen der Badewanne sind ebenfalls defekt.
Wir hatten außerdem Kakerlaken im Haus.
Die Eingangstür ist auch defekt.
Die Anlage an sich ist aber für Familien mit Kinder zu empfehlen
Thank you for your feedback. All issues have been looked into and where we found any problems, they have been dealt with.
Aquapark, Slide and splash and ZooMarine. Excellent themed water parks ...please Google. Zoo in Lagos must see. Monchinque..incredibly beautiful town and mountainous area. Marinha beach 15min drive from Carvoeiro..one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Diving and boating second to none!
