Stayed here for a short break in June. Villa is in a stunning plot about 1.5ks from Pollensa with electric gate, totally private, front part of garden is an allotment which the owner works on but its totally portioned from main house so does not invade privacy.
Old fashioned and traditional but has everything you need. Wi-Fi. TV is only local. A/C in all rooms. Kitchen small but fine for what you need. Lovely outside barbeque areas and terraces. Sun at all times of the day either on the terraces, or pool. Pool raised up at the back, protected by fence and gate, so little ones would need to be watched. Roof terrace also but sadly no furniture up there. "Fake" grass area in front with slide and kiddies play area with palm tree. Massive drive, but no shelter to park car sadly. Table tennis table in the garage?!!
All absolutely great, the only slight niggles or improvements would be:
No instructions for the halogen hob in the villa, process of elimination to get the thing switched on!.
Code for safe is same as for gates, but it doesn't say that anywhere in the villa so we had to ring agent to find it out, also no option to change the safe code.
Main issue - and this was a problem for us - a/c is on a TIMER.
Never had this in any villa we stayed in. It comes on between 1-4pm and then 8pm - 6am. You cannot override this. Also instructions tell you to "not leave a/c on at night, and don't put lower than 21 degrees". We were extremely annoyed about this, for us we want the a/c on (a) when we are getting ready to go out about 6-7pm and then if we want it on all night we would like to have the option to do so.
As it was absolutely boiling when we were there, although we never switched it on from 1-4 as we were out, we did wake up every morning absolutely sweltering hot as the a/c off by 6am. We exchanged about 6 texts with the agents who responded very quickly, but the owner just added one extra hour on at 7pm, so in the end as we were there only 4 days we just gave up.
We did however have to dig out a fan to put in the bedroom. This really spoilt what would have otherwise been a perfect holiday.
They need to change the description to "A/C on TIMER restricted time only".
I don't know about other people but we never use a/c irresponsibly. I would suggest however that if the owner is not covered by rental for this, then he increases his rental rather than spoon feed his customers in this way. very annoying.
Other than the a/c issue this villa was great and we would strongly recommend.
