About Mike Gloyne

Hello and thank you for looking at our villa at Sands Beach Resort. My wife and I bought the villa in 2012 and regularly travel to the Island. We bought the villa principally as we love sport and compete in cycling, running and triathlon which made it an ideal choice as a winter base for our training.

We are both origianlly from the UK but now we live in France and have two children who are aged 11 and 12. We left the UK over 8 years ago due to work reasons and love living and working overseas.

We're both passionate about sport and enjoy a healthy lifestlye but we also enjoy our free time and having holidays whenever we can.

Mike Gloyne purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mike Gloyne chose Teguise

We love our villa as it is ideally situated on Sol Plaza which is one of the better plaza's at the resort. Not only do we get sun for the majority of the day but we are also ideally situated next to the beach, the 25m pool and the children's play park - which if you have kids is very handy as you can watch them play without having to leave your lounger.

What makes this villa unique

- Perfectly situated on one of the best plaza's

- Modern and fully fitted villa with all facilities provided

- We're constantly making improvements to the villa to enhance it

- Next to the kids play park makes it easy for everyone to have fun

- Sea views, very sunny terrace throughout the day

Fab little place, brilliant location. Was very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely complex, if you have a child you are also well located as you are directly across from the park and right next to the pool. The apartment was really well equipped and well laid out. The complex isn't far from shops, resteraunts, all within walking distance. Very happy with our stay, I thought we got ourselves an absolute bargain :)

Dated & unclean, poorly maintained property

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to the property & it hadn't been prepared for us, it hadn't been cleaned & there was no cot for our one year old child. This meant me having to start our holiday with phone calls, firstly to the owner (who apparently lives in France), the call was answer by a voicemail in French, I left a message but never got any reply. My next course of action was to call Owners Direct helpline, they said they would try to contact the owner, without success, they then passed me onto another representative who said they would do whatever they could to help, after about two hours cleaners showed up & hey presto they also had a cot. I must add that the Sands Beach Resort management were adamant that they could not help us in any way as the property was privately owned & not their responsibility. As we began to settle into the property, other issues arose, bed linen was worn & moth bitten, the worktops were infested with small ant like insects which were there throughout our stay & invaded any food products, the TV & DVD displayed a poor picture & gave out a constant buzzing sound, probably due to poor connections & cables, I had to keep rehanging one of the patio door curtains, need I go on. When you compare it with other private properties on the resort, also advertised on Owners Direct, this property has not been improved or cared for by its owner, steer clear.

As for Sands Beach Resort, having stayed here twice previously, we liked it so much, hence why we came back & chose it as the ideal place to bring our one year old granddaughter for her first holiday, we love it's facilities & location, just a short walk from plenty of shops & restaurants, let alone a lovely beach.

Owner's Response: We take all feedback seriously as we want to provide the best holiday experience to guests therefore it is disappointing to read this feedback from one of our recent guests. The key issue is that the guest not once followed the procedure we had advised him in writing shoukd he have any issues during his stay. Had he done so the problems outlined would have been addressed more rapidly. As an owner I don't live in Lanzarote and that's why we have a management company available 24/7 who work for us on the ground. The guest was advised of this but didn't contact them despite being advised to do so and despite their being a reminder on the walk of the lounge in the villa. At the time I was unable to take a call from the guest but was able to raise it with our management company who responded immediately. In fact the issue of the cot was known to them as they were waiting to collect from another apartment who had checked out late. The cot was delivered within a couple of hours of the guest arriving. Sometimes these issues occur with high volume of guests and we're sorry for any inconvenience caused. The issue of the villa not being cleaned was not reported and I don't believe is factual. Additionally the curtain pole problem was never reported. Had it been it would have been fixed immediately. Insects in tropical clients can be an issue for everyone. We fumigate regularly to reduce the problem. Our advise is never to leave any food out in the worktops as it can attract them. Inspects generally aren't an issue if guests put food out of reach. The TV is brand new. The signal is governed by the resort for which we have no control over. Admittedly it coukd be better and this is something we have raised with the resort before. An upgrade is planned but for now all the villa receive exactly the same service. All the sheets and linen are new. Again the guest did not advise us their was a problem therefore it is difficult to comment further. Had we known there was a problem it would have been addressed. We have had the villa for 5 years and generally guests love staying with us. We also love staying their too and have very high standards in our accommodation. This feedback is disappointing as it could have been avoided had the guest followed the guidance we had provided him.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great two weeks here with the family. Lovely apartment on the best plaza with a gorgeous view out to the sea. Looking forward to going back. Everything you need to have a great holiday. Close to the beach and all amenities.

Top tip for people staying. Don't take beach towels as you can rent them from the sports shop for a €15 refundable deposit (thus free) and get clean ones every day from laundry.

The resort was lovely and great for families

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation was really well placed within the resort easy access to pool, beach and all other amenities. The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. The only downside was that it does require a little renovation and is looking a little worn. However holiday are to be spent out not sat in so would highly recommend it.
