Nice villa, vulnerable location & poor security

  • 1 of 5

Nice modern villa, however we were BURGLED, whilst in the villa eating a meal by the pool. The villa is located right next to the main route to a popular beach, and has an alley down the side of it. The villa is one of 3 or 4 on the route, and the others have much better security, leaving this one vulnerable to opportunist thieves.

As the villa doesn't have the advertised ceiling fans (desktop fans only), or the mobile air conditioning units (de-humidifier), you need to leave doors open whilst in to circulate the air, in temperatures of 40 C. They jumped over the wall at the front and into the front bedroom and emptied my wallet and my wife's purse of cash.

I reported the incident to the police, who came immediately, and I also contacted security, who I had to phone again after an hour to attend.

I also reported the incident to the owner, and had discovered meantime that the 'fixed' light of the patio door in my childrens room would not lock at all - meaning the property had been unlocked for the first 5 days of my stay. When the man from security eventually arrived he fixed the door. And apparently, according to the owner - it was my fault - for not doing the relevant security checks on arrival!

The incident ruined our stay, as my children were too scared to sleep in their own room, and we were very wary of all passers-by, leaving us all on edge.

The villa itself is very nice and the gardens and pool are beautiful.

Owner's Response: I have copied the email which you sent to me at the time which clearly states that the incident was your own fault for leaving a patio door wide open and threatening to write a bad review if I did not reimburse you. The doors and windows are brand new and under guarantee, if we had known there was a problem it would have been fixed immediately. We can only fix things as they are reported but this is irrelevant to your problem. You clearly state you would write a glowing review if I gave you money, I did not appreciate the veiled threat. I am sorry this happened to you spoiling your trip "Hi Kate, we are at the villa and having a wonderful time, it is beautifully laid out and in a perfect location. Unfortunately, yesterday evening whilst we were eating our meal outside, someone entered the property via the front bedroom, and stole cash from my wallet and my wife's handbag. As we were in at the time, the patio door wasn't closed fully, therefore I am not covered by insurance - which I understand and accept. I contacted security and phoned the police. The police came immediately and filled in a report which I have. Security weren't as prompt, and we had to phone a second time after 1 hour before they came. Once we had discovered we had been robbed, I did a security check myself on all the patio doors, only to find, alarmingly, that my children's bedroom door was not locked,and after many attempts found we were unable to lock it as the sliding door on the left as you look at it, was not engaged and as there is no handle, it was not possible to secure the property, and obviously hadn't been for the first 5 days of our stay. I informed security and he managed to rectify the issue. As you are the owner of the property I felt it necessary to inform you, and there is some damage to the tiles on the wall by the front gate, where the thieves must have made their entry/escape. Unfortunately my children are very unnerved by this experience and were unable to sleep last night. Fortunately it was only £60 and € 100 that was taken, but given the situation with the patio door, could have been a lot worse. As I am unable to claim from my insurance I would appreciate reimbursement of that money in recognition of the vulnerability of the property due to the broken door in our children's bedroom. Thank you so much in anticipation of your cooperation, and I would still be happy to give the property the outstanding review it deserves, without further mention of this issue"

Fantastic.... But!

  • 5 of 5

Villa was immaculate, great location and stunning views...only problem was that the company we booked with did not inform us that you cannot check in, until 4pm. Having booked over 4 months ago, providing flight times and agreeing to them booking transfer , they knew we would be at club atlantico at 10am.. The reception manager was very polite, however there are no bar or food facilities at the club until 6pm. I would like the owner to be informed that communication from their rental parties are not acceptable and less pleasing to the start of your holiday. If you have children and arrive early when the temp is 30 degrees you may want to take note of this !! Otherwise this villa is amazing 😍

Owner's Response: I am really sorry about this, we do our best to accommodate everyone but we have no control on the state previous clients leave the property and how long the maids will take. We try where possible to let people have early access but sometimes it just isn't possible. I am glad you enjoyed the villa though!
