Great family holiday!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Mar is in a great location. Set well back from roads. Close to beach and walking distance to shops,restaurants and pubs. Puerto del Carmen is just a short taxi ride away. Taxis arrive very quick and are very cheap (4 euro to middle of strip).

The villa itself was very clean and ready early for us as we had an early flight. The fridge wasn't working on arrival but within a couple of hours the maintenence man had come and had a look and then brought a replacement fridge freezer. Such a speedy response.

Pool was lovely and clean and cleaned mid week. Also a great size for a family (there were 7 adults and 2 children in our party)

Some of the rooms are a little dated but who spends time inside on holiday! All very clean though and spacious.We asked for extra fans as there were 9 of us which Lyn provided straight away.

Cannot fault customer service. From booking to any queries whilst on holiday Lyn always replied quickly, even allowing us to stay longer in villa on last day as we had an evening flight.

The entire team really do try our best to make this villa as comfortable as possible and to accommodate groups who enjoy a well priced beach holiday home so close to everything and also have the benefit of a fine private pool. We look forward to your return visit.

Just the Villa for our trip for the bike group

  • 4 of 5

We hired the villa for a bike holiday, it did the job for what we wanted. Close to the shops, beach and places to eat. Yes it is in need of a bit TLC, everything worked, plenty of towels, plenty of bed linen and we had the use of the garage for the storage of the bikes which was a great help,

The fabric of the villa is getting a bit tired now but serves its purpose well. The pool and patio is a suntrap and the villa was clean and comfortable

Owner's Response: Thank you Keith. It was a pleasure having you stay. We hope to keep up with our refurb program as we go. The villa offers great value compared to others so close to the front line

Dirty and in need of Refurbishment

  • 2 of 5

Really enjoyed Lanzarote but very disappointed with the accommodation. We had to buy cleaning materials and spent our first afternoon cleaning bathrooms and the kitchen. Thankfully the dishwasher worked as we had to wash all the crockery and cutlery. The kitchen units were covered in grease, both inside and out, curtains badly hung off the curtain rails and falling off in places. Draughts around windows, water leaking in through roof in upstairs living room, this was not new as you could see the marks on the wall. The bath in the en suite has been painted at some stage but half of it has come away and the bath looks worse now than it would have done if it hadn't been painted in the first place. The window above the bath is in bad repair and some of the tiles are broken. The make up mirror in en suite bathroom is mounted far to high on the wall so that a woman of average height can't use it to put on makeup or do their hair. Socket in master bedroom nearest the wall mirror isn't working. The general state of maintenance was poor, lights not working, door handles held on with one screw, marks on walls not taken care of. In conclusion there was no contact made by the Owner or their Agents, no comments book (I wonder why) the property needs time effort and investment to make it an acceptable rental property.

Fabulous location; easy to find; simple & smooth check-in process

  • 3 of 5

We booked the villa for a family birthday celebration/holiday & it suited us very well. The location is superb with easy walking access to the beach and resort. The area is very quiet although there was some noise on a couple of occasions from immediate neighbours who seem to like moving furniture around late at night (we never saw them to comment).

The agency were very helpful when I contacted them (for the correct wifi code and for additional bedding)

The accommodation is pretty much as described but could use some tlc in places.

Having plenty of towels was a welcome bonus but the lack of even basic cleaning materials was disappointing, as was the lack of basics in the kitchen (salt, pepper, oil etc)

The space is very good for a group holiday but the two inner rooms with bunk beds wouldn't suit everyone. The wifi was good but only worked in certain areas, mainly around the dining table.

Overall this was a good property to rent and we had a lovely holiday.

Terrible. 1 star for location only.

  • 1 of 5

We said a letter of complaint about this property complete with photographs and owners direct forwarded to the owner on 22nd August. They haven't bothered replying. It has been noted that I have been given a poor guest rating simply for making polite complaints backed up with photos. If you stay here and make a complaint they do not apology or even discuss it with you they just give you a poor guest rating.

I would not recommend this property to anyone. On arrival I rang the telephone number given several times on Sunday afternoon and nobody answered until the next day. The blind in the bedroom had fallen off and not replaced,the sun beds were broken and tatty, the wifi code was incorrect, one bed did not have a pillow and the gas BBQ didn't have enough gas. I am surprised that these issues aren't checked on changeover day.The blind wasn't fixed for 4 days.

The swimming pool was frequently filthy as the water wasn't pumping around sufficiently. The children all came up in rashes when using the pool but whenever we raised this issue we were dismissed. They office and pool man cited our suncream and our English skin. All the children have had holidays in the canaries and France and never had this sort of problem.I have also asked for a record of the readings of the chemicals in the pool and sent the owners photos but we've received no comment or readings from them.

My daughter received a nasty gash from nails sticking out of the banisters. Again I've sent photos and not received a comment or an apology.

I rang to tell the office the washing machine door wasn't closing properly. We went home 5 days later and nobody had fixed it.

The 2 twin rooms were extremely stuffy. Neither room has a window that opens to the outside, they just open to the hall way. This means there is an inadequate escape route and as the property doesn't have a smoke alarm I did find this very worrying. The property has 2 fans we could have used in the twin rooms but one was filthy.

The main bathroom window is sealed shut and only opens out to the annex living rooom and not outside. The room also does not have a fan and because the shower is designed as a wet room it takes 12-14 hours for the floor to dry out making it very dangerous for children to use. My 10 year old slipped over a number of times.I have shown friends photos of the condition of the pool and the windows and they have been horrified.

Owner's Response: Thanks Vicki and as promised we have allowed you post your comments as you said you would from 1st day. We are sorry the villa was not to your style and as a result the review is out of sync with the general reviews of our previous and since clients. We hope in future holidays your find as good a villa within your budget. You are always welcome to visit again .
