“Convenient location but a few issues to sort out”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our five night stay at Villa Fahala was reasonable.The house was modern and decorated with lots of Spanish knick knacks which gave it an interesting atmosphere, but the single beds were not at all comfortable and the bunk beds were extremely creaky which meant that our children could not sleep.The kitchen was well equipped and the owners were very generous with what they provided - having an Nespresso machine to make our morning coffee was great - but the washing machine was broken which was annoying.Outside there was a lovely pool area and the pool was very clean but again things were not perfect: there were only two loungers to lie on because the others were broken and since we are a family who like to lie together beside the pool chatting this was a big disappointment and not worth five stars, particularly considering that the house was set up for six. Perhaps the issues I've mentioned were a result of it being the end of a busy summer season, but this short stay comprised our only holiday this summer and was not cheap. Having said this its location was great. I'd recommend it but ask about the strength of the wifi and check through the above with the owner before booking.

Management Response

Thank you for staying at Vega Fahala. We are proud to maintain a beautiful property that has brought many vacationers a wonderful and authentic rural Spanish experience. We are bound to a high standard regardless of whether you are the first guest of the season or the last. Like any other house, things can break and so we have a response system in place to fix any problems that may arise immediately. And we provide our guest with a phone number to call us at any time.
The washing machine is new, however it did break right before you came. We told you we could repair it immediately, but you told us you preferred we didn’t because you didn’t plan to wash, so we scheduled the repair for after you left.
When you said that the wifi was not working properly, we restored the connection within 30 minutes of your call. Vega Fahala has the fastest connection available in our region, but it is subject to a data quota that if it is reached, we need to reset it manually. This happens very rarely.
You complained that your children were unable to sleep in the beds, but that complaint doesn’t make sense given that you didn’t call us. Your review here is the first I am hearing about any problem with the beds. The beds are less than two years old and good quality. if you had complained about them during your stay, we would have responded and likely we would have brought others or tightened the screws if they were causing squeaking.
We are not certain how you got the impression that there were broken chairs by the pool. There are two lounge chairs there, and three sets of outdoor sofas and chairs that guests can place anywhere they wish in the outdoor areas. The set near the pool we tend to keep in the shade, because this is the logical spot to sit when you tire of the hot Andalusian sun.
The villa has top of the line induction stove and oven and all the appliances are new, including the refrigerators and the dishwasher. All kitchen needs were carefully anticipated and so the kitchen has everything a person might need; for this reason, we think that the rating of “2” you gave for the kitchen equipment doesn’t make sense. As far as the directions to the house, we are unsure how we could have made finding us any easier. Prior to arrival, we send all our guests a detailed map and welcome e-mail with easy to follow information on how to get to the meeting point. My sister was at the meeting point waiting to greet you, and had you follow her in your car. We fail to see what could have been added to make it easier or more pleasant for you.

We stayed at vega fahala a party of 7, the views of the hills and orchard were fantastic, the villa has everthing you need, I would recommend a car even though the town is less than 10 mins away, we had a fantastic time (wanted to stay) so thank you very much manuel and family.
