|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
Villa with WiFi, heated pool, outdoor 400 meters from the beach of Las Coloradas Jacuzzi.
This Villa is specially prepared for families with children, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, outside there is a covered pergola games. The heated pool is surrounded by a security fence for children.
The location of this villa is escepcional, 400 meters from the beach of Las Coloradas and 800 meters from Marina Rubicon, with its bars and restaurants.
Villa Sabina is well located, about 5 minutes walk from the sea front in the Los Coloradas area of Playa Blanca. The nearest supermarket is just up the road and its only a 20 minute stroll from the bars and restaurants of the Marina Rubicon. It is also only a fairly short, if hilly, walk to the Papagayo beaches.
The villa itself is spacious, well equipped and clean. We particularly liked the hot tub, which was professionally maintained during our stay. The pool, although very small and a bit old was warm thanks to its electric heating (included in the price in April).
Now to the "but" and the reasons for only four stars:
1. The bikes provided were not maintained at all and hardly roadworthy. I had to borrow a pump and managed to get a bit of air to stay in the tyres of one of them. To be fair, it then made it up onto the Papagayo hills despite its buckled front wheel and sticky brakes but it was a bit of a let down
2. The hot water system only seems to have the capacity for one shower. There were only three of us staying, so we managed, but if there had been six of us we would have needed some sort of shower rota.
3. There were no instructions or local guide books. Yes, we could have asked the caretaker who lives just down the road, but the absence of them shows a lack of attention to the details which separate the good from the great.
Overall, it is a good villa, and we would probably go back, but it could be excellent if some of the minor points were sorted out.
Die Angaben und Fotos des Inserats entsprechen dem aktuellen Zustand. Das Ferienhaus und der Pool waren sehr gepflegt. Lediglich der Whirlpool würde doch einmal frisches Wasser vertrage. Anreise, Schlüsselübergabe und -abgabe haben prima funktioniert. Die Küchenausstattung ist etwas knapp in Bezug auf Besteck für 6 Personen, aber ansonsten alles ok. Besonders überraschte uns, dass tatsächlich bei einer 1-Wochen-Buchung, die Bettwäsche gewechselt wurde und eine kurze Reinigung der Räumlichkeiten stattfand. Wir können die Villa weiterempfehlen. Einen Wermutstropfen gab es: Die Straße auf der Schlafzimmerseite ist relativ stark befahren und so ist ein Schlafen bei offenem Fenster eher nicht möglich, bei geschlossenem kein Problem.
Prime location in the Las Coloradas, quiet area, supermarket 300 meters, 400 meters maritime promenade, marina Marina Rubicon 800 meters.
