This was our second visit to Villa Picon, and we had perfect weather. Nico, the on-site caretaker, and his wife Ana work non-stop to make sure that the property and beach are extremely well-cared for. They are always ready to help in any way. Ana cooked a delicious dinner for us one night, and we wish that we had requested that she cook on a second night.
The home was off from the resort area with a lovely sandy beach. No rocks to stub the toes as you waded in the ocean. Wonderful pool that was just against the beach so my elderly mom could sit on concrete and enjoy the surf. Beautiful sunrises every morning.
Anna did the cooking and prepared daily what our request were. She went to the grocery store for us. They presented the receipt and I gladly rewarded their honesty!!!
We had a great family vacation. It's been three years since we have been coming here and we love it.
The most relaxing vacation I have had in along time. The location was great. The service was outstanding!
Rented the villa for a quiet relaxing vacation. The villa was well maintained, very clean, roomy, and comfortable. The pool was pristine and large enough for a good swim, yet small enough to sit around and enjoy friendly conversation. The beach was exactly that..."a beach with great sand and waves rolling in for a fun splash." The staff, Nico and Ana were very accommodating and made the stay that much more enjoyable. Definitely would recommend to anyone who would prefer the seclusion to the constant distractions and pounding music you find at the all-inclusive resorts.
The housekeeping staff were sweet, wonderful people - I have absolutely no complaints about them whatsoever. However the house needs a little loving care. The floor throughout the house is like walking on ice when it's wet. The tile on the floor in the kitchen and up to the bedrooms has many chips and cracks in it. The pool is constantly loosing tiles, so much so that we made a game out of who can collect the most tiles when they went in. The waterfall which does not work on the pool is dumb and sticks out like a sore thumb. Even with all the doors and windows open and all the fans on there is NO breeze that comes through the house and you sweat like crazy. It kind of sucked that in order to have fun and play board games we had to in a bedroom where there was air conditioning. Many of the light switches do absolutely nothing when turned on. The shower in the guest bedroom is backwards as are the controls on the oven which is VERY dangerous. The house needs help.
