“Car Required (Remote), But Very Quiet, Clean, + Great Property Management Team”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Enjoyed a 9 day break in May 2015 - loved it.

Synopsis below:

Areas of Improvement:

1) Single Beds Squeak
The single beds in two rooms squeak when you move. If you are a light sleeper, you will hear every person in the house as they 'toss-and-turn' at night (including yourself). Not a big issue if you are a heavy sleeper. Not applicable to the Master bedroom mattress.

2) Drainage Odours
It doesn't happen all the time, but it seems drainage odours are an issue in many parts of Spain - especially at El Valle Resort. It's not a deal breaker, but it is very strong and we had to shut the kitchen door and bathroom due to the smell. When it happens, you definitely don't feel like preparing food in the kitchen. This negative could be a positive if you are trying to lose weight (makes for a great appetite suppressant).

3) Pool Safety for Young Children
As there is no pool safety fence, young children can open the doors from the inside of the house and access the pool. There is a way to create a secondary barrier, but will require you to close the wooden shutters on the external of the doors. This can deter, but not prevent 100%. If your child can't swim or you actually feel like a holiday by not having to watch them every second of the day (it takes less than 3 minutes to drown and it can be silent), be mindful that the pool area is not 100% secure for young children.

4) Remote – Car Required
It’s not fair to document “remoteness” as an area of improvement, because the remoteness creates the tranquility. However, you will require a car, as it’s not really very close to anything. There is an on-site supermarket (Spar) that is well equipped. Nearest pharmacy is around 10kms in neighbouring town. The large malls in Murcia and La Zenia are 25-30 mins in opposite directions. Not a deal breaker, but does require time and mileage.

The Awesome
1) Remote – Tranquility Assured
The villa is on the border of the development, so no villa is behind you, only left and right. It’s located in cul-de-sac, so it’s quiet. High wall at rear, and wooden mesh-like fencing allows for privacy when in the back garden.

2) Neoteric Villa
Modern villa, well furnished and to a high standard; and yes, that includes bidets and mixer taps. Compared to UK standards, large showers and bedrooms (N.B. in most other parts of the world, they are normal size, so don’t get too excited).

3) Facilities
For those who love their good ole English TV - fear not - as Sky TV is installed. WiFi is a maximum download speed of 3Mbps, and communication programs such as Skype and Viber will work on audio, but intermittent for video (+ audio). Small outdoor playground around the corner (walking distance) from villa allows the kids to play. Great paths for bike riding within the development. Large common pools (unheated).

4) Professional Property Management
Property management team speak English (being from the UK), are punctual, friendly and very helpful.

Thank you ever so much for your comprehensive review. Lovely to hear you had a wonderful holiday and generally everything was to your liking. We will look into the problem with the sqeaking beds to try to resolve the issue. The drainage problem on El Valle is an issue which is being looked into by the community. Hopefully they will be able to resolve this problem quickly. Thanks again for booking with Connect Rentals and we hope to hear from you again in the near future. Martina

Thank you for your feedback. I am delighted that you liked the villa despite the plague of wasps. I will pass this onto the owner as I am sure he will want to try to find out if anything can be done. I am sorry to hear that you couldn't find any suitable restaurants to your liking as we have had some superb meals both locally and in Murcia, Cartagena etc. An information pack is available at the villa giving examples of recommended restaurants. Yes I agree, the area is very Spanish, particularly in the summer months which for many is an attraction as compared to the high rise and very busy costa del sol. I am sorry you didn't like Murcia City as we've been a number of times visiting the many historical buildings, cathedral and designer shops. Glad to hear though that you enjoyed the beaches and yes they are very safe and lovely and warm. Thank you once again for booking through Orchid Holiday Homes and hopefully we may hear from you again in the near future. Martina
