We hadnt visited Portugal for 7 years and we were not disappointed. Vila Petra is situated just off the Strip, far enough away to be quiet but close enough to walk to bars and restaurants. Vila Petra is a beautiful hotel with great staff. Entertainment is also fantastic, Bruno & Tony were by far the best we had a ball...

Well equipped self catering apartment. Staff are lovely. Everywhere clean and well maintained. Gardens are beautiful. Great location, short walk to The Strip but far enough away not to be an issue for noise, etc. 5-10 minute walk to road train stop to Old Town. Oura beach 30min walk but beware of the hill if walking back although courtesy bus...

We had a week at Vila Petra in mid-January. Lovely grounds and our one bedroom apartment had all we needed. Apart from the fact that TVs have been removed from the bedrooms now. Maid service is excellent and the mini mart is fine for easy shopping if you aren't looking for anything much more than basics, prices were fair as...

We went for the Self Catering option, the room was equipped with everything we could have wanted, maid service daily and the towels seemed to be changed every day regardless of us hanging them back up. On arrival (which was earlier than check-in time) we were greeted with news that our room was already available and we could have it...

What a find! Our first time in Portugal and we were blessed with fantastic weather (20-22 highs) and beautiful surroundings. Vila Petra is set in beautiful grounds and has fantastic facilities (some were unavailable due to time of year and maintenance works getting ready for peak season -this did not affect our stay at all). We stayed in a superior...

We've just returned from a very happy week at the Vila Petra (2 - 9 January 2017). As other reviewers have said, the apartments are much better equipped than most self-catering places: our kitchen had everything we needed and more besides. Our spacious living/dining area gave on to a balcony which, even in January we enjoyed sitting out in. The...
