Avoid, poor condition and disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Sadly property is tired. Games room unusable due to damp. Pool had dangerous missing grates, walls peeling, sofa peeling, no tv channels as advertised, pre clean of poor quality, raised issues with local agent and booking agent on second day. She says she didn't get email til 6th day, uncanny how she got all the ones before and after! A number of other safety issues, not sure why onus is on customer to spot these. Shows quality of their ongoing inspection and preparation work. We have stayed in much nicer in that area for same money. Don't take risk.

Apparently rusty screws on cutlery aren't/weren't a problem as they are only on handles!

Read our other reviews of other places, we are not awkward people just were sadly let down by this property. The hours of arguments it took to get a less than twenty percent refund and never an apology is why I feel need to write this review. I have photos to back all of the above up.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed that this guest has not put an accurate review on the website as this villa is a beautiful property in an ideal location and we have repeat guests year in year out. Sadly this guest did not make it known to us until a few days into their holiday of their issues. As soon as we were made aware we made every effort to resolve them. As they confirm we did apologise and we did compensate them for the inconvenience caused due to the delay in his communication getting through to us. We can only presume it was down to their network provider not sending the email until they were in a viable location. They did have a 24 hour help contact number but chose not to use this facility. We ensured that all their issues where dealt with, within 24 hours of their contact and also compensated them. Do not let this one guest spoil the opportunity to stay in this wonderful villa, we guarantee you will have a wonderful holiday and will want to return.
