Stay elsewhere and enjoy your holiday

  • 1 of 5

Not worth the money or hassle, stay elsewhere and enjoy your holiday.

1. The Wifi is shocking, we paid extra to use it and it would drop constantly. I emailed Kirsty and Trevor and suggested they have the wifi looked at before their next guests arrived. They didn't respond but Trevor arrived unannounced at 9.30am the next morning for an internet diagnostic. Sitting in pjs, having breakfast on a relaxed morning with my family, I found Trevor’s unannounced visit, while well meaning, intrusive and entirely unnecessary. Trevor agreed at the time to refund the Wifi fee but we are still waiting.

2. We were traveling with 2 young children including a 6 month old baby. We chose the Villa for its heated pool, I would never in a million years describe that pool as heated. Our baby literally cried when we tried to put her in.

3. In the villa is a notice about the neighbour who works night shifts, don’t close doors or walk in heeled shoes etc so as not disturb her in the day. We stuck to this but it wasn’t mutual, paper thin walls and doors banging through the night mean a very disturbed sleep.

4. 2nd morning in the garden we could hear another English family in a garden backing onto the villa, a couple of little boys and their dad playing in the pool, they weren't being excessively noisy. The Spanish lady in the house behind shouted and threatened to call the police. We spent the rest of our holiday 'shushing' our children, hardly the relaxing family holiday.

5. INCESSANT DOG BARKING. We have 2 dogs and barking doesn't bother me but this was all day and all night.

6. The refrigerator is broken, milk would sour overnight and we daren’t leave meat in.

7. There is a broken light socket in the living room hanging out by the wires. It's a low socket and well within reach of my 4 year old.

8. Broken lock on the balcony door leaves the house insecure.

9. We spent the 2nd day cleaning the grotty place full of ants alive and dead, in dire need of a deep clean.

Casa Calista is outrageously expensive for the experience and for the standard of the house. I have emailed Kirsty and Trevor twice since returning home, requesting that the Wifi fee be refunded, I am yet to receive an email from them.

The island is beautiful and I would recommend everyone visit, just not in this villa. There are holiday rentals everywhere and you might have a better experience with a more reliable management agency.

Casa Calista - A Nice Property, Clean, Comfortable and Good Value

  • 4 of 5

The property was comfortable, spacious and clean, with everything necessary for a good family holiday. A bit of a walk into the Centre of Playa Blanca (good exercise!) but when we didn't want to do the return journey on foot, taxis were plentiful and cheap. Lovely pool at the Villa and convenience shops nearby. We didn't meet the Owners/Managers but all dealings on email and phone with Kirsty were efficient and friendly. One negative; the Villa is in a residential area and the property has many signs to remind visitors to keep quiet at night - but also during siesta time in the afternoon. This was fine with us, but it was a pity the local dogs didn't know the rules too - the canines living in residences around the Villa made an almighty racket a lot of the day! I got the impression they belong to people away all day for work as we never heard owners intervening. While, not a deal breaker for us (and obviously outside the control of the Villa management), we did find them annoying when we were using the pool/sunbathing/trying to get baby to sleep! It's just something worth bearing in mind if peace and quiet is an essential requirement for your holiday - on a few afternoons, the continuous barking certainly ensured there were no siestas on the sunbeds for us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Casa Calista and I am happy that you enjoyed your stay in this villa. I am sorry that you were disturbed by the dogs barking and I have complained to the Administrator of the Community about this and asked them to contact the owners responsible to ensure that their dogs are not continually barking throughout the day. I hope this has not put you off returning to this villa, and really hope that we can welcome you back at some point in the future.

A memorable holiday for us all

  • 4 of 5

The villa was everything we expected and more, there is alot of space, so as 2 families we could still separate ourselves if needed. We arrived whilst the property was being cleaned as we were early, but that was no issue as we went off shopping after emptying the 2 cars. When we came back it was clean and we'll maintained, the pool was amazing and a godsend for all of us in the sweltering temperatures. We had an issue with the TV, but Trevor came round the next day to fit the WIFI TV, this was not the greatest due to the WIFI speed so live TV was not an option most of the time even after turning off all other WIFI enabled devices, this is not the properties fault I just do not think superfast fibre has arrived in Playa Blanca. The reason I have only given 4 stars and not 5 is that the villa is for 8 people, but it only has 6 sunbeds and the outside table has only 6 chairs, with 2 people having to eat separately. I would and already have recommended this property, I will be back at some point, Kirsty and Trevor are professional and accommodating from initial contact to departure, all I ask is that they push hard for Air Con in the bedrooms, when the dogs start up and you have to shut the windows and doors it gets a bit sweaty, but I will be back loved it.

Fab Place To Stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 8 weeks from January to the end of February. We had a fantastic time Kirsty and Trevor are fab dealt with any problems we had and obviously during an eight week stay there were a few, but all sorted very quickly. The villa is fab if not a little tired, I love cooking and found the oven was not very good which was a little disappointing when we were there for so long. Hopefully this year when we go there may be a new oven? The pool was great spent a lot of time in it just wish it had been a bit warmer it is a little on the cold side. All in all we had a fab time Kirsty and Trevor could not have been more helpful which was really appreciated we can't wait to get out there again in January. Love it thanks Kirsty and Trevor

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas 2015 here, the Villa was fabulous, close to the main town and had everything you could want for a family holiday. There are loads of restaurants and cafe's in Playa Blanca as well as sandy beaches. The weather was lovely and we spent most of our days by the pool or exploring the island. The layout of the villa is ideal for a wide range of adults, there are two downstairs bedrooms with en-suites which was perfect for my elderly Mother. The villa was well-maintained and very clean. The owners emailed us straight away and any query I had was dealt with promptly and professionally. Could not recommend highly enough.
