Very clean and comfortable
Property is located in resort 1 min walk to beach front so is ideally located. It is very clean and comfortable. The only downside to property is the toilets are constantly running which needs to be looked at but not a major issue. There is wifi in the villa in ground floor which is slow but useable - bring a booster if u want to extend signal. All utensils/linen provided but you need your own basics - tea/salt/oil etc. We did get bitten by mosquitos so rem. to bring some repellent.
The resort is good and majority of staff are very friendly and helpful. We often ate breakfast and used various restaurants - children under 6 eat free - bonus. We used the spa facility where you get 50% off any treatment if you have more than one.
Taxis are plentiful and a ride into santa maria town centre for food/shopping is 3/4 euros. There are options of excursions and water sports. Personally i would avoid Tui, Tui do not employ locals i believe and the local companies are just as good if not better not to mention cheaper. The locals rely on tourism as only source of income so they are not well off but they are friendly so rem. to tip when you can if possible.
We stayed for 19 days and were looking for peace and quiet and sunshine and that’s exactly what we got! The villa was extremely comfortable and had everything you could possibly need and more. The views of the beach from the front balcony are stunning! Thank you to Darren, Warren and Ali they couldn’t have been more helpful and prompt with questions and correspondence.
Wonderful Villa - everything you need!!
This Villa has an amazing location with spectacular views... couldn’t be better. It has everything you could need for self catering and on a wonderful resort with great facilities. The owners gave us a great deal of information prior to our arrival which assisted us greatly.
One word for the Villa, the island and the experience... FABULOUS!!!
Amazing villa with a very helpful host
We had 14 lovely days at the villa. It was clean, large and well functioning. We had a few problems with the garden and one AC, but one day after we contacted the host was it all fixed.
Thank you, Darren.
Amazing!!! Exceeded any expectations I had
I came with 4 adults and my 5 year old daughter the villa on arrival was immaculate spacious and well worth every penny. When it says you have views of the sea you really do the beach is a 2 min walk if that and on the balcony you have a view of the beach and sea it’s beautiful... the resort is beautiful aswell 2 large pools 2 kids pools and you have your own pool in the garden. I have nothing bad to say about the villa the communication from the owner was brilliant sent very helpful information in regards to my stay. If you are looking to book a few things I would avoid are the men on the beach selling boat trips/ jet ski experiences they pay the security to walk about for 30 minutes so you think they are genuine and I would avoid the waterside restaurant it was slow and the food wasn’t great. The other restaurants on the resort are amazing we ate in them all they didn’t charge for my daughter who’s 5 you have to book to get into the restaurants. We will all defiantly be coming back none of us have a bad thing to say. In another review it mentions the bikini beach music which yes you can hear but it really isn’t bad I thought it would be awful but it’s really not so don’t let that review put you of the weather was beautiful most the staff at the resort were brilliant!!! We will all be coming back in October :)
