Fantastic modern clean Villa with a great swimming pool !! But NO AIR CON :(

  • 4 of 5

When we got there we were received very well by Franklin, him and his wife Juliet looked after us very well. Nothing was too much trouble they cleaned out the pool as soon as they could when birds fell in it .. also replaced the kettle and generally were very helpful..

The villa was clean modern and very spacious and they provided plenty of crockery, cutlery and towels.. We were a family of 9 staying

and we had plenty of space...

We absolutely loved it but only one set back that it had no Air Con although they provided us with floor fans in every room upstairs , downstairs

got really hot and there was not much breeze.. Also they need to provide mirrors in the bedrooms as we had to queue up to use the mirror in the

bathrooms. .. We could not access the WIFI on the top floor which was inconvenient as we had to stay downstairs to use our tablets and mobile phones..

These are the only negatives points apart from that I would definitely recommend this villa ideally for 9 to 10 people... We had a cockerel waking us up in the morning , monkeys in the garden and of course we were visited constantly by the dreaded mosquitoes !!

If the Air Con is put in I would have definitely given our villa five stars... !!!
