“Wonderful stay at Villa Frances sharing celebrations with our family all under one roof!!”

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Villa Frances situated in a central location in Puerto del Carmen. The beach is a five minute stroll away and you can choose to walk either way to the Old Town or to the Casino area. The front is full of friendly restaurants and bars and many shops. The villa is well equipped and has the added bonus of a washing machine and dishwasher. The beds are very comfortable and both linen and towels were changed during our stay. My family particularly enjoyed the outside area - We chose to have the pool heated and was used it every day. The sunbeds and seating were ample and we enjoyed more than one bbq during our holiday. Lynne the friendly housekeeper came and introduced herself once we had settled in and was available should we have any problems during our stay (which we did not!).
It's definitely a thumbs up from all my family and we would love to return.

Reviewed 1 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is the first time I / we have rented a villa seperate from the norm of booking a package holiday.
This was a surprise birthday treat for mum & everything from cleanliness to the heated pool was perfect & we even used the BBQ..

Thank you villa frances - hope to see you again soon.

“Lovely villa but...”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Myself, my partner and our friends stayed here from 20th June - 4th July 2013. The villa had more than enough space for the 4 of us and the pool was great - spent many evenings in there! Couldn't really fault the villa or it's location but there were little things that affected our stay. Thankfully, Lynne and her husband were always on hand to help and were so friendly - she even took us to the airport on our last day! Whilst in the villa the electrics seemed very dodgy as a lightbulb or 2 would blow near enough every day. Then the fridge/freezer packed up so Lynne brought her spare one for us to use as the shops weren't open at the time. We understand that things like that happen so it didn't bother us as we had help on hand. However, the only negative thing I can say about our stay was that we paid £25 a week (£50 in total) for the villa's wifi so we could keep in touch with home (my parents were also away and we had house-sitters). The wifi worked for all of 2 days and then decided to not work anymore. Both of the guys in our friend group either work in or have qualifications in IT so it wasn't initially a problem but whatever they tried they could not get the router to work. We asked Lynne and she contacted Frances on many occasions to ask if she could suggest what to do to sort it out and if it was anything her end but nothing came of it. Thankfully we could contact home using wifi in some local bars but we paid £50 for a service that we did not receive during our 2 week stay and despite Lynne telling us that Frances knew about it, we were never refunded, apologised to, contacted or even acknowledged on our return which was really disappointing.

Apart from the wifi fiasco, we did really enjoy our stay at the villa - I just hope the wifi works now for those who pay for it!
