A lovely villa with everything you need. Fully equipped with good facilities on a quiet location. Nice swimming pool with sunbeds, a launchset and an outside BBQ. We enjoyed our stay from start to finish. We already booked two hollidays for this year via Sandy Blue ????
We had a really wonderful holiday at Villa Areia Azul in Varandas do Lago. As always, SandyBlue made our holiday very easy from finding the right villa for us, booking it for the weeks we wanted and providing a great service while we were there. SandyBlue have the right formula for managing and renting out great properties on the Algarve and we will be returning again to our favourite slice of heaven. Thanks to all concerned, The Scanlons, South Africa.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Areia Azul and so did our friends, great villa with lovely pool. Everyone from Sandy Blue was more than helpful and attentive in any requests made with a cheery manor, nothing to much trouble, we would certainly book with you again and also recommend to friends.
We really enjoyed our stay. The villa was spotless and everything was new. The pool fence was perfect and it was very secure for children. The bedrooms were a really good size, particularly upstairs. Great service, really nice and secure, incredibly quiet location. I would really recommend it.
We all had an amazing time thank you and the villa was perfect.
The villa was great and Sandy Blue very easy to deal with. Passed your details onto a number of friends who may look to use you in the future as well.
Just a short e-mail to say thanks for all the arrangements around our recent stay at The Villa Areia Azul. We had a fantastic holiday and the villa was perfect. We had decided not to hire a car and used a driver service recommended by you so thanks for this – the guys were excellent. Thanks again.
Villa was absolutely perfect for 4 couples. Everything was great..., the flowers on arrival, pool towels, starter kit of food .... All very much appreciated. The house is immaculate and you feel like you are the 1st person to stay in it, well maintained had spotlessly clean I appreciate this is more than 1 word!! So overall i would say AMAZING - Amazing villa, location and service from Sandy Blue- particularly Amy.
Many many thanks for all your help- we have all had the most wonderful week. The villa surpassed all our expectations - cleanliness and so well furnished internally. Thank you for a memorable week
We had a great time, and will definitely be using the Villa again
We most certainly did have a lovely holiday. From the moment we arrived we just loved the villa. It was bright, comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. When we did have a little problem with the dishwasher you arranged for someone to come and fix it in no time at all. We liked the Villa Areia Azul so much that we have already enquired about booking it again for the same time next year.
We had such an amazing time at the villa.
Villa Areia Azul was perfect for our needs. We were two families of four and never felt like we were on top of each other. The villa was beautifully furnished and well presented. The location so close to the beach and within easy reach of golf, shops, restaurants etc was ideal. We would certainly come back! The sandy blue team were very helpful and ironed out queries quickly and efficiently, they were on hand when needed but did not intrude on our holiday. We would definitely use them in future.
We had a great stay thanks! Villa was perfect for our needs and we all agreed we'd consider renting the place again in the future!
Thank you again for a wonderful holiday we all had a really great time
We would like to thank you for a really wonderful holiday. We enjoyed every minute of it and will certainly be coming back for more. The villa was exquisite, clean and the facilities were superb. The staff were exceptionally welcoming and any issue we raised was very quickly resolved. We loved every minute of it and wished we had more time. We will certainly be recommending sandyblue to friends and colleagues.
We had a lovely holiday thank you! Very sad that it is all over! The villa was lovely and we very much enjoyed our stay. The details in the Sandy Blue information pack were also very helpful.
We had a fabulous holiday and all 3 generations had a ball. The villa surpassed all expectations and the welcome pack was a great idea and much appreciated. Hopefully we will be back again some day. Regards Douglas
We all really enjoyed our stay thank you for all your help it really made the holiday for us. I will let my mum put the review up she's better at that sort of thing. Thanks again for your help, Regards Dale
