Villa Cordeiro Customer Reviews

Jamie Ohare, 21-Apr-2016

Visited as a party of 8 (6 adults, two young children). Lots of space in this modern villa. Very high quality finish throughout. Good for children with gated pool area and stair gates. Pool was well-heated and warm at end of April. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac with fields around most of the property. 5 min drive to nearest beaches. Also very handy for Zoo Marine and Krazy World (both recommended for families). Villa Plus service was excellent throughout.
