What a fantastic 4 weeks we've just spent at this villa.
The villa is exactly as described. We would have no hesitation in staying here again and also recommending it to others.
The only thing we didn't use was the BBQ, but that was only because it was still cool in the evenings.
Stacey & her crew were incredibly efficient undertaking a weekly clean of the villa and changing bed linen & providing clean towels. Her husband also called on a very regular basis to clean & maintain the pool.
We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the evening stroll to Playa Blanca or along to the Rubicon Marina to some wonderful bars and restaurants.
So delighted that you had a wonderful holiday and you seem to love the villa as much as we do! ( I know people can think we could be a bit biased!). Would be only too happy to welcome you to stay in the future.
Fab pool, well equipped villa, relaxing holiday!
We stayed here with our young kids in March 2018. An excellent villa, we had a brilliant stay. Very well equipped - plenty of things to make the stay so comfortable such as kitchen utensils, plenty of towels (including ones for the pool/beach), pool toys, DVDs, few board games, BBQ tools.
The pool was fantastic - a good size and nicely heated. On a still day we spent ages in the pool, it was warm enough for the baby; although on a windy day the air chill made it harder to spend much time in there with younger kids. Unfortunately the jacuzzi spouts were out of action - double check this with the owner as we were told it would not be fixed for some time. That being said, Norah-Anne and Stacey were excellent in answering our queries very quickly. A broken washing machine was checked and replaced pronto.
Bedrooms were fine with plenty of wardrobe space. Good bathrooms and nice hot showers. Just to note the bedroom with mezzanine level in had a glass patio style door. This was no problem for our 3 year old, but might be more problematic for those needing more privacy. We didn’t need to use the mezzanine level, and the stairs were quite steep so probably not suitable for younger kids. A great space for older kids though, a lot of fun.
The villa is an easy 20 min stroll to the seafront and main strip - lots of restaurants. Dorado Beach was also about a 20/30 min walk. 4 euros for a Taxi back, even with pushchair and sandy feet. Also walkable to Rubicon Marina. We found a couple of nice playground areas at the main strip which were well maintained. We didn’t hire a car and just stayed in the local area, but there was ample parking and decent roads near by so would have been easy with your own vehicle.
Overall, we loved our stay here. Very relaxing, excellent facilities, helpful team, great pool.
Thankyou so much for the taking the time to give such an informative review.
We are delighted that you had such a great holiday.
The villa had fabulous outdoor space with designated areas for dining, sunbathing and relaxing in privacy. The inside of the villa was equally spacious, well equipped and very clean and tidy.
We had a very enjoyable stay.
Thankyou so much for your review .
I am delighted that you had a great holiday.
Nice place but needs some TLC
Nice property in a great location.
We had some issues : electrics kept going off which led to the water going off.
One of the toilets stopped working (this could happen to anyone and only happened on the last night).
Pool towels are pretty threadbare and could do with replacing.
Bathroom towels are small.
It would have been nice to have a welcome pack (tea.coffee, milk etc).
Management company are great (Stacy).
I am so sorry that you did not have a wonderful holiday in our villa and that it did not meet your expectations.
As I have already discussed privately with you , there were unavoidable problems which were completely outside our control ( eventhough we did reimburse you personally) and they are now being dealt with but I do apologise again that this disturbed your holiday. I have also previously let you know that some pool towels are in the process of being replaced.
If I had known that you would have liked a Welcome Pack we would have been only too delighted to sort this out for you.
Fantastic accommodation, great owner and management company
The accommodation is great and well-kept. There was plenty of room for us and the pool is a real highlight.
We visited in December between Christmas and New Year and because the pool is heated we were able to spend lots of time in it. If it hadn't of been heated I don't think we could have managed.
When we arrived I noticed a couple of bulbs that weren't working and sent a WhatsApp message to the management company. The next morning they arrived and replaced them. The kettle broke after a few days and was replaced the same afternoon. Things will break but when you're staying for a week it's really important for your enjoyment of your stay if things are resolved quickly and easily - and they definitely were for us!
Little things like a full ice tray in the freezer, a couple of dishwasher tablets, a small roll of kitchen roll, charcoal and matches for the BBQ etc make a big difference too.
The accommodation was very clean, the sunbeds were as-new and all the furniture was in fully working order. We spent most evenings enjoying a glass of wine overlooking the pool area whilst the kids slept soundly. The bedroom with the "loft ladder" and single bed was quickly ear-marked by our eldest who loved the magic of that room.
It's worth bringing your own dishwasher tablets, washing-up liquid, soap, coffee and tea with you - particularly for a short stay when "buying new" would be a waste. There's a cafetiere if you like fresh coffee! A citronella candle is worth it too for the evenings. If you have children who like to watch a bit of TV before bed then there's a DVD player and a few DVDs. You can pull the front gate closed and the kids have got a large area to kick a ball or play in.
The accommodation is an easy walk down to the beach (maybe 15 minutes with kids/pushchairs) and 20-30 minutes to lots of restaurants overlooking the sea. There is a skatepark on the way to the beach if your kids have scooters/skateboards!
Getting a taxi back from the main playa blanca high-street as about 3-4 euros and there's a taxi rank where you stand in line. The queue moved quickly for us whenever we needed it. We tried to book a taxi to collect us from the accommodation and couldn't get through but as we were leaving I noticed a sign in the taxi that seemed to mention an app - not sure on this though!
All in all, a fantastic break and a great place for our young family to stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thank you to Norah, Stacy and Adam for their help.
Thank you so much for your review which was very much appreciated and very informative for others to read. Thank you also for your understanding. You may know that we ourselves had been out just before you and all was working. I am so pleased that you had a great holiday.
Secluded and private
We went for a relaxing week in the sun and this is what we got. After doing a shop on the way to the villa we had no need to leave all week, it was bliss, for us being able to hibernate in the villa with no intrusion or noise made our week, everything you need to cook was there, the pool and sunbathing area was spacious, there are restaurants near by if this is what you want. Both Norah the owner and Stacey from the management team team couldn't have been more helpful, thank you both
