we had a great stay at the villa in July, There was 11 of us & there was plenty of room, 6 adults & 5 children,
All the bedrooms had Air con (which was defiantly needed) . kitchen had all the appliances you needed & plenty of cutlery & plates ect . Out side was great nice pool great sunbathing areas with plenty of sunbeds ( all in good condition) Also areas that were shaded as it did get very hot , there was an outside BBQ area with tables chairs , The Table tennis table got plenty of use,
across the road was the Sunshine restaurant which served good food at good prices. Supermarket on about a mile away selling everything you need
taxi`s to the old town & the Strip worked out at 10 Euros each way
all in all great time, I would defiantly recommend this villa
We cannot tell you how much we loved this villa, comfortable and spacious with everything you could need. We were a family of 6, 3 adults 3 children we arrived late on Sunday night tired and excited and when the taxi stopped outside this impressive villa we were over the moon.
The pool outside was great ( just with kids be careful, there isn't much of a shallow end , but my kids had a blast). The restaurant across the road is owned by a lovely man and wife, the food was really really good.we hired a car to have more freedom with the kids but u could walk to the Marina, the supermarket might be a bit of a trek.
Maria the maid was such a lovely kind women great with the kids and she is in and out in a flash so the villa is fresh and clean every day which for me was the real treat. Will I be back absolutely.
Perfect villa for big groups, 10 of us stayed and had a fantastic holiday. Pool was great, both pool and villa where kept exceptionally clean. 5mins in taxi to old town and some lovely bars and restaurants within walking distance. Very reasonable price! Would definitely stay again
Large family group of three generations we all had a wonderful relaxing holiday. We have stayed in many villas, this was the cleanest and by far best maintained property we've stayed in. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There is a good restaurant a stones throw away and several others within easy walking distance. There's lots to do in town which is a short drive away. The beach in about 15 min walk. The description is accurate book with confidence.
It was a great place for our family reunion of 12 persons. The pool was the best feature along with ample space to move around inside and outside. I was surprised that their was no toilet paper provided! We had a few issues with the kitchen plumbing and one bathroom shower head not working right. Yet all was fixed and only provided a slight inconvenience.
The directions from the airport to the villa was spot on, even in the dark we found it without any trouble. The villa was exceptionally clean, well stocked kitchen and lots of space. The cleaner came every day (apart from the weekend) and was very helpful.
Only negative point was how hard the mattresses are, would have scored 5 stars, but this may be because the English like softer beds, so more a personal issue. However all 7 adults wished they could've been softer.
The restaurant opposite served the best food that we could find over the 2 weeks, highly recommend eating there.
Our power tripped one evening and the emergency number was answered straight awa and we were talked through how to get it all back on - exceptional service.
Overall I would highly recommend, beautiful villa, lovely location, would definitely go back.
