Previous visitors comments: 'Just to let you know we had an excellent week in Praia D'El Rey. Your travel directions, restaurant/food guides were superb and the area was as good as I had heard. The weather and surf spoilt us all week, the villa was perfect and it was shame to spend such little time there.'
'Just wanted to say thanks for the stay in the villa. It was a beautiful place and we all had a fantastic time.'
'It was just right for us and the children. Your managing agents had provided us with exactly the cot and highchair we would have wished for - thank you very much indeed ! The house was immaculate when we took it over. The welcome pack was excellent.'
