A tight fit for 5

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at the house in 2005 ( 2 adults and 2 teenage girls). The house is located in the heart of Altura (an uncommercialised and pleasant resort) near to all amenities and in a gated community, however the house itself was clean but not equipped for more than three people. It lacked enough seats both inside and outside, and could seat no more than 3 people which resulted in us not all being able to sit in the kitchen or the lounge at the same time and was generally sparsely furnished and kitted out. The house lacked air conditioning which makes it very hot and stuffy in the summer months - only fans provided. The pool was unusable too which meant that we had to go to the beach everyday. Although we passed our observations and comments on to the owner we felt that they were not received positively. Could be suitable for a couple during the off peak months.

Good choice, but not for everyone

  • 4 of 5

Nicely presented villa at the heart of Altura village and close to the local market and supermarkets.

Still a fair walk to the beach, mostly by streets that lack proper sidewalks.

Lovely outdoor space with nice BBQ set, made dinners and evenings relaxed and pleasant.

Main issue is the swimming pool, as it is not always available > better have owner to confirm.

Overall, good value for money, but only if you are not that keen in having a swimming pool.
