About the property

Villa Xiquetes is a beautiful villa located in a pretty and private setting on the edge of the countryside, surrounded by gardens. This superb and elegant new villa is full of natural light that has been built in the traditional design of Mallorcan farmhouse with stuccoed walls, and shuttered doors and windows. The rooms have large windows making the most of the countryside views all around. The gardens around the house make it relaxing and private. The house and the gardens look out over countryside to Cala D'Or itself, and across to the villages of Calonge and S'Horta, and to the mountains of Felanitx. The house is located only 800m away to Cala D’Or where you will find all facilities and amenities that you need to spend a great holiday. Cala D’Or offers a never ending choice of restaurants, pretty sandy coves and the impressive international yacht harbour.

I wouldn't stay here again

  • 3 of 5

The food pack was bitterly disappointing and was not at all worth even a tiny fraction of what we had paid for it. There was one tiny pack of processed, tasteless cheese (which was completely inedible) a loaf, some butter, a few bin bags, a really cheap bottle of wine, a few tea bags and some milk.

Adding insult to injury there were no condiments/sauces/salt/pepper/cleaning products etc left in any of the cupboards. We have rented dozens of Spanish villas over the last 30 or so years and we have never arrived in one to find absolutely nothing. We were left only two toilet rolls for a family of six and in a house with five toilets!

The internet was broken, we called Solmar. Contacting them proved difficult as neither of the two telephone numbers they had texted to us with worked. When we did finally track them down via our booking documents, we were told that as we had arrived on a Saturday, the internet could not be mended until the Monday.

We searched all over the property for the purple pool towels which were on display in all the poolside photographs on the Solmar Villas website. These could not be found. We once again telephoned Solmar who told us that they did not supply pool towels. This was VERY disappointing and their website is VERY misleading . We have never stayed in a villa as expensive as this one and found that we had no pool towels included. We had to buy pool towels for use during our stay.

There were signs at the front door of the property warning us about security, burglaries and intruders etc. They strongly recommended that we keep the shutters closed for our security. As a precaution, we closed the 'lockable' gates as mentioned on Solmar's description. The gate did not lock and became jammed half open/half shut meaning we were then locked in the villa for the next 24hrs.

The safe was broken, the dishwasher was broken, the parasol was broken, the towels in the rooms were old and grotty. The air conditioning was not effective. Music was repeatedly played during the night which kept us awake.

On the plus side, the villa was clean, had a hot tub. The villa was also well situated for Cala D'Or. The cleaners came to replace the towels (with more grotty and very well worn old towels) and clean half way through the week. The issues that we reported, such as the internet being broken and the gate being jammed shut were resolved reasonably quickly.

I would never stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Food pack costs includes the time taken to shop and deliver the items so represents around 50% of the cost in actual products. We always recommend clients purchase their own food shopping on arrival to ensure they get the brands and types of food they prefer, the food packs are really an emergency option for clients arriving late at night. We do have a list of the contents for food packs available in our FAQ pages prior to purchasing. It would appear you had more than a fair share of broken items but I am glad to hear that all the problems were rectified quickly by our local representative. Wi-Fi signal in the area can fluctuate and unfortunately none of the communication companies engineers work at the weekend. This villa has proven to be popular with our clients this year and we will continue to ensure standards are kept high and any reported problems rectified as quickly as possible.
