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.

We look forward to your return visit.

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 .

Fantastic villa great value and fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the most wonderful time staying in Villa Mar. We were amazed that the villa was so close to the beach and strip for the price we paid . It is a fantastic holiday base for any large group. The pool is beautiful and well kept . Pool man called most days to check . We ordered a welcome pack which is advisable to get you started .

The management company are just located at the bottom of the hill and could not do enough for us. They were so friendly and helpfull Arranging taxis , tours, and even got us a hire care at a great price. They also have baggage storage facilities and showers which we had to use on last day as there was an arrival just after us. Thank you so much to all the team!! We are already organising next year!!

plenty of space for everyone particularly the pool area

  • 4 of 5

Location brilliant five minutes from shops and bus stops, short walk to puorto del Carmen, short taxi ride to rancho texas and airport. Pool area was great loads of room, good size pool, plenty of space inside the villla for everyone (my group was 5 adults, two children and a baby). A request to the owner was very quickly responded to. I will quite happily book this villa again next year if circumstances allow, if not then definatly the following year. Thank you Lyn.
