Post-Lockdown Holiday
This Villa had everything we needed for a successful holiday. A nice sized pool, table tennis and pool tables and plenty of space for the eleven of us. Great location

Great stay would recommend
We have just come back from Villa Grace Bay. Our overall experience was very positive, - - Cleanliness, beds made, fresh towels etc. - Classic style Algarve Villa, spacious with great views from the roof terrace. - Location, close to all the nightlife, lots of restaurants - Special mention to Karen and Olivia who work for the local team, they made us feel very welcome. We did have a couple of cloudy rainy days but it didn’t spoil our holiday. We had a great stay playing Golf and relaxing at the nearby Salgados course, Golf and transport all booked by Algarve Vacation. Would book again.

Great place, great location, great hosts!
Grace Bay Villa was perfect for our family of 6. It's close to the beach, but far away enough from lively Albufeira. We were able walk to the beach and local coffee shops and restaurants. Everything is provided for a fun and relaxing holiday. The accommodation is first rate, with comfortable furnishings, bedding, TV’s, Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen and grill. The kitchen has everything you need the beds were comfortable, everything was clean and worked well. The hosts were friendly and informative with good advice about where to go. We would definitely return!

5/5 Excellent

Grace Bay wonderful villa!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Check in was hassle free, the property as a whole is very well maintained. The Villa was very clean and well equipped. Being just outside of the touristy part of Albufeira made it very relaxing for the perfect getaway. Sitting on the roof terrace with great views of the ocean and surrounding countryside was our favourite spot, great communication in booking and excellent information on activities, restaurants and information in general provided by the local team. Thank you for a great week.

5/5 Excellent

Im großen und ganzen ok
Lage ist toll, das Haus ist groß und geräumig. Leider etwas in die Jahre gekommen und leider war es teilweise auch etwas schmutzig. Unangenehmer Geruch aus den Abflüssen in allen Badezimmern. Ansonsten perfekt für einen Aufenthalt mit 10 Personen. Gute Ausstattung.
