Very confortable

  • 5 of 5

I gave a 5 star instead of 4 because overall it met all my families needs. There a couple minor things I like to point out. One of the large doors to patio was very,very hard to open and the dryer took awhile to dry cloth. Both issues were not enough to lower rating.

The pool was fantastic and the golf carts were definetly a must and both worked perfectly.

If you have a need for 5 bedrooms, do not pass up this villa.

We did not get the extend access to the resort but all the things included were fantastic, we were traveling the island, so we didn't need access to the extra resort items, if you plan to never leave the resort, then you may want to buy. We were 3 family's 6 adults for children and there was more than enough room for everyone. I hope this was helpful.

Wonderful villa

  • 4 of 5

Villa Serena was beautiful and well equipped. The bedrooms were spacious and had their own baths. The common living areas were large and comfortable as well as the outside living area next to the pool. We had a party of nine and never felt tight on space. The kitchen is well equipped as well which made meals easy. The two golf carts are a great feature for getting around the resort. It is definitely worth the resort membership for the week for use of the fitness center, water park, Encanto Beach Club and reduced golf rates.

Had an amazing Time

  • 4 of 5

When we walked into the home it was picture perfect; it was just as described on the website.

We were greeted by Mara who was in charge of the home and she was great and very friendly. Told us everything we needed to know.

It was a wonderful area with plenty to do nearby as well and the ground were maintained well.

House we give a A+++++++++

The Pool was great always cleaned A+++++++++

The Kitchen was nice

They had apple TV in all the rooms

We only had a few issues:

1) They provided no extra linens- It was ten people who stood at the house and some of us were missing towels- (I think a linen closet with extra linens should be provided- every other home we have stayed at provides that for us)

2) One of the rooms had a leak when it rained- which happened to be my room and in my room the vent was a bit off the wall in the bathroom

3) One of the bedrooms didn't have a dresser to put clothes in

4) The lounge chairs need to be replaced- some look like they have been fixed or repaired and they are not sturdy.

4) The Wifi was not that strong but it worked for the most part. It was ten of us so we were all on at the same time.
