We've had a super time!
We have had a lovely holiday in Portugal despite the poor weather! The villa exceeded our expectations providing us with all we could wish for, the games room in particular was fantastic. Your service has been prompt and efficient as always - we hope to be back there next year!!
Fabulous villa. Brilliant staff. Thanks for everything!
We wanted to let you know we had a great holiday and the villa was perfect for our family. Thankyou very much for the family touches such as the children's plates & cutlery and highchair, these all helped our holiday run smoothly. We look forward to spending our vacation again with you in the future.
We indeed had a lovely stay and thank you to Sandy Blue for a spotless and stunning villa.
Just to say we all had a great holiday , the Villa we stayed in was well equipped and pleased to report that when it says it sleeps 8 it also accommodated 8 with enough chairs inside and outside , the pool guy was good and for a chlorine pool he kept it so well that I thought it was saline
Thanks to team at Sandy Blue for organising a wonderful villa. The team is responsive and informative The villa was pristine and comfortable . The pool heating was excellent value as its heated to around 30 degrees , We loved the outdoor seating areas and the whole area is quiet and secluded I would not hesitate to use sandy blue again and look forward to returning.
Thank you! we had an amazing time, the villa was faultless!
Just a note to say what a wonderful holiday we had this year at Villa Dos Sonhos. It is a very lovely villa and Sandyblue organised everything beautifully. Over the last 20 years of renting, I do think that you are the best I have dealt with.
Thanks for a memorable holiday .
Hi Marta, we had a great time and can only thank you and your colleagues for your assistance at various times it certainly helped us to enjoy the holiday so much knowing that your office was on hand to visit or pick up the phone to as and when advice was needed.
Thank you very much to all of you at Sandy Blue for helping us have a wonderful time here! We'll hopefully be back with you soon!
We've just returned from our hols at sonhos villa we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa was everything we hoped for! We shall def be returning! Many thanks for allowing out late check out which was very much appreciated especially as our late flight was slightly delayed so even later!
We had a great holiday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at villa Sonhos. I couldn't fault a thing other than wishing we could have all stayed longer. If the owner ever decides to sell in say 5 years time please let me know - It's a lovely retreat from our busy lives in the UK.
Hi, we had a great stay at Casa Dos Sonhos, I was pleasantly surprised at how good the villa was. We would definitely use your site again and recomend this villa to friends and family. Pass our compliments onto the owners. I'm sure you will find the villa in good condition. Warm Regards, Keith
We are enjoying Vila de Sonhos very much. The weather has been so good, but unfortunetly tomorrow will be our last day in Algarve.
Thank you so much for helping us to have a fantastic time. I love the area and the villa was amazing.
We had a fabulous time, thank you. I will happily post a positive comment on Facebook. Just a couple of things to let you know not big things at all but just some feedback. The basement/garage in the villa was a great place for the children to hang out and they played many a game of table tennis there. Overall we thought the villa was amazing and it suited us perfectly, the high quality of all the furniture and accessories was greatly appreciated. We will definitely book again with you, as we always do, when we come back to the Algarve, as we can be sure of top quality accommodation and great service. Thanks Again , Alison
I have used SandyBlue previously to book a break in the Algarve and once again I found them to be professional, approachable and very helpful. We were traveling with another family and children and they really went the extra mile for us and provided lots of extra goodies to keep the children entertained which allowed us more relaxation time. The packs they provide make the transfer and navigation around the local area extremely easy. In short they make everything as easy as possible and are always at the end of the phone if any help is needed. I will definitely use them to book our next holiday in the Algarve and would recommend them to anyone. We found Parrilla Natural, Paxia, Menta Pimenta, and Thai garden to be our favourite places to eat with every beach bar being of good quality no matter which beach you visit.
Hi all, just arrived at the villa - it is amazing and the extras for the children are just fantastic, thank you so much for all the extra effort. Kind Regards, Victoria Dawson
