Ideal family villa
This villa was perfect for our family holiday. There was ample space for 4 adults and 2 young children and the resort provided everything we needed - brilliant pools, good restaurants and a beautiful beach literally right on our doorstep.
We spent one week self catering (the kitchen has just about what you need for this, however the fridge is quite small) and then one week enjoying the hotel all inclusive package.
All in all, a perfect place to unwind.
Spacious and comfortable villa in good location
We had an overall great stay in Neils villa, there were a few teething problems such as there weren't enough beds made up for all of us and problems with the Wifi but I stayed in touch with Neil the owner who was very prompt at responding to my e-mails and we got it sorted in a relatively timely manner.
Neil was great at communication right from booking and was happy to answer any questions I had before we left which was fab.
The villa was comfortable and very spacious for the 5 of us (3 adults and 2 older children) and it was very well placed in the resort with the garden overlooking the beach right next to O'Grills restaurant/beach bar. This was definitely a plus for a sundown G&T!
We did a lot of cooking as we didn't go all inclusive (something I would definitely consider next time as food and drink is very expensive everywhere on the island) and the kitchen was well equipped with most of what we needed.
The beds were really comfortable and the villa was really quiet with no outside disturbance - you could hear the music coming from O'Grills around 5 - 7pm (which we liked) but other than that it didn't impact on us at all.
When we did eat out we got a taxi into Santa Maria which is a 5 minute drive for around 2 or 3 Euros. The Taxis are always waiting outside the Hotel reception so it was very easy.
Having use of the hotel facilities was great too and the kids took advantage of the pools in the complex but spent most of their time playing about in our own plunge pool (this was a massive plus point) or on the beach. We also went up to see the in house entertainment a couple of evenings which is good if that's your thing.
All in all we had a really pleasant stay and would recommend the villa and the owner highly.
Amazing location and had everything we needed
The villa is quite simple, but very good value - amazing location right on the beach and near the beach bar which had wifi. Good clean pool and loungers, and everything you could need
What an amazing time and place to spend your holiday!!
Beautiful country and scenery , the accommodation was lovely, and the service and communications were 100%..
Loved our Holiday at this location!!! :0)
Nice villa on a nice spot, straight view on the beach and the ocean, without being bothered by vendors, as the security of the Melia Resort is on guard! Very safe place, the only threat were some annoying moustiques. The villa was cleaned up midweek, the swimming pool every day. The only noice was the wind!
Kitchen is well equipped.
