“Great place - with some quirks!”

We stayed here with a group that ranged from 3 - 70 years old (18 people in total) The villa is a very spacious and we never felt like we were on top of one another. It felt very secure and we did not feel that we were at risk of burglary at any time. We went out for a couple of days and had meals out in the evening - no dramas. The swimming pool was loved by the children - BBQ area was well used by us. Only little niggles were the showers upstairs - the water does not run away very well and did cause some fun and games! The tap in the kitchen is very wobbly and the wooden chairs outside were a little pst their best to say the least. The cleaners were excellent and did a very thorough job, as did the swimming pool cleaner. I would recommend Uber if you are going - as radio taxis were very hard to get consistently. Excellent Rodizio a short walk away, as is a well stocked supermarket. Aldi/Lidl are a taxi ride away, but a cab back is very hard to get (unless you have Uber!) We do not go back to places we have stayed at before, but if we did we would definitely use this Villa again - Kids were heartbroken to leave.

“Highly recommended”

Stayed at this villa for 10 nights in July 2016 with 13 other family members of all ages. This villa is beautiful and the whole party agreed that they would stay again. The villa had plenty of room both inside and out and the pool although very deep is a great size for a villa. We found the villa to be secure and in a great location. On arrival the villa was very clean and the cleaners arrived after 1 week with fresh bedding and towels.
Miguel was very friendly and helpful and any time we contacted him he would respond immediately.
The only issue we had was the dishwasher, which wasn't great and could probably do with replacing. Other than that there was nothing else we could fault.

“BE WARNED YOU WILL GET ROBBED”

Where do I start!!!! We stayed at this Villa on the 21st May 2016 for a week. When we arrived all 18 of us were very happy. Great location, clean rooms and very spacious and the pool was lovely. Very happy well until we were being watched and were robbed 3 days later. Miguel met us on the first day bringing people with him insuring us he was looking to have CCTV fitted as the Villa had been recently broke into, see below review from Hen do. (I still don't believe the CCTV has been fitted) On the Tuesday evening we left the villa at 12.30pm after a Bbq making sure all doors and windows were shut, we even barricaded doors. It was very secure. We arrived 2 hours later to have been completed wiped out. No damages what so ever!!! Police arrived and were useless and didnt seem bothered! A knife was used to open a suitcase which was left on the bed and the police didn't take for evidence even though they suspected who was doing this!! Police did say they warned owners to fit CCTV when the first robbery took place. BE AWARE There's a reason they don't want CCTV. Funny Miguel was never to be seen again!! Strange! Not even to apologise or see how everyone was. Great manager! Also we called him to say a toilet was broke and leaking. No one came to fix. It's a shame this happened as a friend who organised this did such a good job! Luckily this didn't ruin our holiday! If you book this apartment after reading this you are deluded, because this will happen again.

This villa is Amazing! It has everything you need for a great holiday. Really spacious, clean and for 17 people we had a great time.
If we needed help with anything, Miguel was on hand to help in any way he could. He is friendly and couldn't do more to help. When we did phone him he was at our villa within the hour.

Yes the electric tripped a couple of times but a bit of common sense and it was back on within seconds,without phoning anyone.
Couldn't fault the facilities at all!!

Great location, short 10 min walk to a good selection of shops. If you wanted to go slightly further (5 mins to old town I would highly recommend, and about 6-7 euros)then there is a great taxi service which we used constantly.

Also this villa is NOT burglar friendly....there is no way anyone is getting in there! We had two children and a baby in our party and felt completely safe, if you go out and leave everything unlocked then expect that anywhere you go!

On our last day because our flights were late we were put up in another villa where we could use the facilities including the pool. Great service all round.

We will definitely be using this villa again

“Ideal villa but let down in lots of ways...”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We booked this gorgeous villa for a hen party of 16. Patrick was amazing when helping me book and pay, he was really quick to reply to emails; even when he was away travelling, he passed my queries on to Jim who was really helpful too...communication at this point was excellent.
When we first arrived everyone loved the villa. The bedrooms are really big and the bathrooms looked lovely and clean. The outside looks so grand too, especially with the big pool and plenty of sun beds. The cages on the windows and doors were a bit depressing but apparently they were necessary. Miguel met us a few hours after our arrival to show us round the villa and that was the only useful contact I had with him. Unfortunately this was where the nice things about the villa ended.
The cages on the patio doors wouldn't unlock and it felt like we was in a prison. Having to use the front door when we all wanted to sit around the pool was annoying because if the front door closed on us, we would have been locked out as it can't be opened from outside...it was just something else we had to think about. We called Miguel repeatedly get assistance. It was over 24hours later that someone turned up to unlock the shutters. Unfortunately it was our last day that they done them and they then couldn't be locked back up, so we couldn't then leave the villa all together as it wouldn't have been secure...especially as we had been burgled on our last night!! Everyone was extremely nervous in the area. This villa has no security at all! Miguel warned us when he met us on the first day so we always made sure everything was really secure. However during the night, the cage on a downstairs window was pulled out and used as a ladder to climb onto the balcony and then the doors were forced open. Anyone would think that if management know how dangerous the area is, they would have security lighting or CCTV...but nope. Again i repeatedly tried to contact Miguel to inform him of the break in and that we had gone to the police, but he still never returned my call. Apparently he organised for the police to attend the villa as he heard my voicemail but it felt like he did not want to speak to me directly.
On to the more minor details...the oven is shockingly bad, so cooking for 16 people was very difficult...especially as Miguel didn't follow through with his promise of bringing us coal for the BBQ and again repeatedly ignored my phone calls.
Secondly, there was a leak from the downstairs bathroom sink which meant the floor was always flooded and disgustingly dirty.
The shower pressure was ridiculously low, especially if more than one was being used...with 16 females this is inevitably going to happen! The ensuite shower/bath downstairs at the end of the corridor had a split so most of the water ran down the outside of the hose and often the pressure was so low that it would cut out completely.
The kitchen tap was hanging off.
The swimming pool was freezing cold; only 2 people managed to get in for a few minutes before their legs went numb.
The unkept road leading to the villa from the main road was difficult to walk on, especially with heels on, and because it was so dark.
Finally when we was ready to leave the villa, Miguel knew the time, he didn't come to see us before we left. As we couldn't lock any of the cages we had to leave the villa unsecured. It would have been nice to be able to pass on our issues with the villa to the person who is suppose to be managing this property, but unfortunately this couldn't happen.
I'm sorry, but paying almost £900 for 4 nights for an unsafe villa, managed by an uncontactable person, is extremely disappointing!
