Fantastic Private villa!!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic private villa with a great pool and outside space with BBQ and plenty of shade and gorgeous plants to admire - our party was 2 couples and it suited us perfectly - lots of room with great kitchen for preparing

Lunches and BBQ' s - it is walkable distance ( a bit of a trot! ) to the beach and bars and restaurants or a short taxi ride for a few euros - would defiantly recommend dinner and cocktails at the marina - Donna and Tony were brilliant and would defiantly recommend the villa and stay again - thank you for a brilliant holiday - Isobel :)

Homely but not luxury

  • 4 of 5

Villa Amore is a nice, well equipped villa in a good location . It is fairly quiet and very private, with a spacious outside area, with lovely plants.

We were a family of 7 adults.

Things we liked : The villa had a very homely feel and had everything needed. It was 15 mins walk a to a large supermarket , where they would order a taxi for you. There was a smaller more expensive shop a 10 minute walk away. The poolside area was lovely , with a great shaded area and very pretty at night with the lights. The air con in the lounge worked well as did the wi fi and the TV. The safe was a welcome addition.

What we didn't like: the general cleanliness- we had an issue with the cleanliness / heat of the pool . I emailed Donna and she dealt with it promptly- although the management company 'Spectra' let them down really - they addressed the issues half heartedly. When we arrived there weren't enough towels so we had to contact them - they brought towels round later but when they know how many guests are staying this should not be an issue- it's just inefficiency. I noticed that a previous review had mentioned the same problem - so clearly they Don't learn from their mistakes!

The welcome pack consisted of some wine, a few sachets of Nescafé and sugar, with some tea bags out of their packet - so not very fresh. Some water and milk would have been nice.

The bed linen / towels were clean but not great quality- the poppers wouldn't close on the duvet covers- some of the pool towels were small/ thin / had holes in. There were no ceiling fans as advertised- only individual fans , which weren't great. One of the hairdryers didn't work and there were a few bulbs that were out. The kettle was so caked up with limescale that the lid wouldn't open.

These are all small attentions to detail which would cost very little to rectify , but would make a difference. With a party of 7 adults a second set of keys would have been handy.

Villa Amore is essentially lovely but just a bit tired - however, it didn't spoil our holiday- We enjoyed our week here. Thank you Donna

Lovely villa with pool in attractive garden

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) enjoyed two fabulous weeks in Donna and Tony's lovely villa. The beds were comfy, the pool was warm and the sun shone (most of the time!) The garden and terraces provide a great outdoor setting for enjoying the pool and alfresco eating.

The location is ideal being a relatively short walk to town and set amongst similar properties on a small, smart and quiet development.

Tony popped round for a chat to see everything was ok and Donna couldn't have been more helpful throughout the booking process.

Worth every one of our five stars! We'll be back next year.

Lovely Villa with tranquil garden

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in a quiet location, outside space is lovely with real attention to detail paid to the planting. Although a road runs down the side of the house, the garden walls eliminate almost all of the traffic noise.

Lovely deep bath & enough very hot water in the tank to fill it.

Kitchen has all the plates, cutlery & general gadgets you could want.

Oven is only half-sized so if you are a large party you'll probably find it easier to eat out (there is plenty to choose from within 5 minutes drive).

Pool is lovely & big, plus being heated is a bonus!

Looking forward to planning our next visit

Great Villa, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic fortnight. The villa was very comfortable. It is clearly more than a rental villa. It has been lovingly decorated and furnished. Everything is of a high standard, it really felt like a home.

The location is great, a few minutes to get into town by car or bus. Nice and quiet, complete privacy. The outside area was great, we loved playing pool and even table tennis gave us a great laugh! The pool was perfect. We couldnt of asked for more.

There were a few issues with the cleaning company/pool management, but they were dealt with quickly and easily.

Easily one of the best Villas we have ever stayed in, we are already trying to book again for this year! Thanks Donna and Tony
