I understand the negative reviews as we also found the shower to be low pressure and not great , I also found the internet drops out often which isn’t great , but being in Europe our data costs the same so 4G is fine. The Villa is basic , could with extra plates and glasses but we have enjoyed our 7 nights with our nephew and his girlfriend. Second bedroom definitely needs extra furniture , I think for location it’s value for money , outside area is great , pool great , quiet location and rooms stay relatively cool , no need for air con in January although thE weather has been in the 20s and sun all week.
Some bulbs need replacing inside . The sun is on the pool for most of the day which is a bonus also . We ate out mostly so cannot comment on cooking facilities .
We have just returned from Villa No 5. It was clean, the beds were ok, but more pillows are needed as one each was not enough. The shower is ok, we didn’t really sit inside so I can’t really comment on the settees, the TV only had a couple of English channels, so no good if you like to watch TV on holiday. Our main issue with the villa was that we had to buy washing up liquid, washing powder, dish cloths, pegs, cleaning products, salt, pepper, cooking oil etc. We have left these items in the villa for the next inhabitants, I just hope they will be still be there and are not removed. The twin bedroom has no wardrobe or bedside drawers which we found odd. There was however a wardrobe in a small room off the hall. On the plus side, the villa was nice and quiet and the pool was heated to a reasonable temperature. Overall the villa was fine, not a home from home, but adequate for the price.
Stayed here for two weeks over Xmas and New Year..
We arrived early and the villa and pool were being cleaned..the cleaner was lovely and let us leave our luggage there and off we went for something to eat and drink..
Ok so on entering the villa we were quite impressed by the size, it had three bedrooms and two bathrooms a kitchen, lounge and a utility room..
The furniture was old and shabby but we thought " ok " we can overlook that..
The cooking facilities are next to none..a couple of frying pan's, and saucepans but no oven trays, roasting tins or any oven proof dishes, so to cook anything other than a pizza was impossible and when your there for two weeks it's nice to stay in and cook a meal..not here though !
There was a kettle,toaster and coffee machine but only one plug..
The beds were comfy but the pillows were crap..
The bathrooms were large and kept clean but having a shower was eventful..the water would go from hot to cold and back to hot all the time..
The cleaner came in three times the first week to change the towels and empty the bins and only twice the second week, the bed sheets were changed once..
In the evening's when the sun went down it was quite chilly and the villa had no heating , it was really drafty too so we used to put towels by the front door to stop some of the drafts...it really could do with a couple of portable heaters..
English channels on the tv consisted of Sky news and CNN, but loads of German, Dutch and French..
We didn't use the pool because it was too cold but it was cleaned a couple of times while we were there..
The position of these villas are the best thing about them..just a couple of minutes walk to the beach or shops and restaurants but they're on a very busy road and its constant all day and night with cars and buses..no peace and quiet here.
I couldn't recommend these villas to friends or family unless they were updated and more facilities were in place 😞
I will start firstly by saying the correspondence between the owner and the person booking the villa is non existent. We were never informed of where we could pick the keys up from although we contacted the owners on numerous occasions to no avail. We arrived at the villa and we were very lucky to catch the maintenance man next door who let us into the villa.I opened the door of the villa and the handle fell off in my hand. Inside is very dated, covers on sofa were dirty and holes in them, bedroom curtains had holes in them, tiles in kitchen area all marked. The kitchen had very few utensils. There was no basic essentials such as salt pepper tea towels ect. The maintenance man then spent the week at the villa chopping down trees and even asking us to move our Sun lounges so he could carry on. The pool wasnt very clean either. We holiday every year in Lanzarote and I can safely say this is the poorest villa by a mile. The whole experience from no communication from the villa owners to the very poor interior and not much better exterior were a nightmare and we couldn't wait to come home. Also the air conditioning didn't work and when we phoned the desk they said they would look at it but we heard nothing else and it wasn't repaired. I definitely would not recommend this villa to anyone.
Arrived at the villa early which wasn't a problem. But the villa is a little dated not a big problem but it is supposed to have fans for each room and there wasn't had to ring the Rep up to get one again not a problem. The problem is with the maintenance company as in you don't see them at all! The pool hasn't been cleaned in 5 days and we've had some pretty good winds this last week coming over from Africa and so the pool is disgusting! Rang the Rep to find out when the pool would be cleaned and told today and then the Rep comes with a net to clean out the leaves ourselves which is fine. There's a cat that likes to poop in the garden so your inundated with flies, the bins don't get emptied so you have loads of ants if they got these issues sorted then it would be a fantastic place to stay as the location is superb the bars and restaurants are top notch and local eminities are great
