I just wanted to say thank you very much for a great holiday. Your help was very much appreciated. We all had a great time.
Stayed for 2 weeks in Oct 2016. The party was 5 adults. Arrived late evening, first impressions were that the Villa was spacious internally & outside space was reasonable. On inspection the next morning, external furniture is old, worn & basic, 6 loungers (one ripped & unusable, another ripped during the stay, when contacted Property Manager, was informed that owner would be contacted for permission to purchase new equipment or one would be supplied from another property - it was the latter.....), no loungers on upper sun terrace, just 3 old chairs. Everyone was allocated one large & one small towel each (all appeared tired & worn), there were no hand towels in the 3 bathrooms or bathmats. Many cups available in Kitchen, but only 3 odd mugs, no plastic tumblers for use outside (privately purchased more towels, mugs & tumblers - reported lack of these utensils & fact that they had to be purchased - answer that this was our perogative). TV channels are abysmal in choice. Both main & en-suite bathrooms had badly leaking shower heads/hoses which meant really poor quality shower spray (this is something that has happened over a period of time & was not just co-incidence & should have been picked up along time ago, when pointed out, it was repaired/replaced the next day).
Outside space is ok, but could be so much better if upgraded like all other properties in close proximity. Good selection of DVD's & CD's for use. Pool was a good size.
To re-cap:- Villa has huge potential if upgraded externally (outside space & furniture) & maintained internally (fixtures & fittings). This would be a luxury Villa as claimed in the advert if the above was addressed. As it is, it was a disappointment.
A nice sized detached villa peacefully located between the 10th and 17th fairways. Not directly overlooked.
The villa is located on the edge of the Caleta de Fuste with the main centre, which has a good range of shops and restaurants, being about a 15minute flat walk away. However I would recommend a hire car as on a hot day this walk can be tiring.
It is under the airport's incoming flight path but we never found this intrusive, more interesting to see which airline companies were flying in.
The pool is a reasonable size, and quite warm. Not the biggest we have had or the warmest but OK nonetheless. With the Fuerteventura winds keeping it debris free can be a challenge but the cover does help this when it's not in use.
There are a few things which let the villa down and stop it getting a 5 star rating in our eyes.
1)The first is the poor TV reception. Sky News signal is non existence and the only channel which worked with any consistency was CNN. I know you don't go on holiday to watch TV but when a Villa advertises itself as having a large TV with satellite channel you do expect it to be useable in this day and age of high tech.
2) The Wi-Fi is not free, and the usage fee charged is extortionate. With so much free Wi-Fi about these days we chose not to use it especially as we were unsure whether it came in via the same satellite dish as the TV signal.
3) Overall the villa felt a bit tired and in need of some TLC e.g. kitchen knives were all rusty, towels old and crispy, water pressure different all over the villa with distance of travel seemingly having no bearing, glass partitions in bathroom either missing or broken and covered with masking tape presumably due to sharp edges, a bed base was broken, a number of lights bulbs had blown before we arrived and had not been replaced, fags butts from previous occupants stubbed out in BBQ and flower pots.
Overall it is a nice villa, but it just that it could be a really great one.
Had a good holiday in this beautiful, well furnished and equipped Villa. Very spacious with good facilities. Warmest pool we have ever had. The internet connection was poor and TV had a poor selections of channels. However we were fortunate with the weather and spent much time outside. Our party consisted of 3 generations and we all agreed it was a great holiday.
