Kontiki Village St Tropez

IF you are thinking about renting a private mobile ref fr4529 from owners direct .

Do it at your peril!

This accomodation was not ready on arrival.

Dirty and had bad smells.

The owner will not refund your money if the accomodation is not up to your expectation not to mention not as described on owners direct.

We had to find alternative accomodation.

Which is a shame as the Kontiki Site and accomodation looks great.

We booked this property for the September 2010 break that we are now on and only saw this revue after the confirmation etc. We were thus very wary and worried as the original posters comments are quite severe.

I can however only wonder if we are talking about the same FR4529 as the mobile is absolutely wonderful. We have been to this site on two previous occasions but previoulsy used the accomodation owned by Kontiki themselves and all I can say is that this property is far and away superior to anything else on the site. It is also considerably better value for money.

The unit was clean when we arrived and is EXACTLY as you see in the photographs on the owners direct web site. The only smell that is evident and it is far from being foul, is in the well equipped bathroom and it is exactly the same slight odour that was in the previous huts we have rented from Kon Tiki and is also evident in the shower block. It really is about all that can be expected on a camp site as far as that is concerned. Do not be put off by that, it is really not a problem and it certainly is not something that anyone would really think about, other than the fact that it is mentioned in the original post.

The accomodation was not ready when we arrived either but then again we arrived three and a half hours before the posted hand over time, so we can't complain. It was however made ready for us as quickly as possible and we got in early with out a word of complaint as to the inconvenience that we caused.

Two nights ago there were very strong winds and the pilot light on the boiler went out. This was remedied by the on-site contact in a very quick time frame and they have been incredibly helpful and efficient when we call them.

In closing I would say that book this home very much with an easy mind and rest assured that it will all be that you hope for. We shall be coming back again to this site, which is great, especially so if you have kids and without a shadow of doubt we shall be taking this property again - if it is not already taken!

We recommend it wholeheartedly.

Are you sure you have the right FR number???????????????????

My partner and i have recently returned from a week in mobile home FR4529 in Kon Tiki resort and it was fubulous. The mobile home had no bad smells and was immaculate when we arrived, it contained everything that we needed for a relaxing week. We originally wanted to rent a Tiki Hut but considered them far too expensive. we spent our first morning walking around the site and soon realised that we had made the right choice of accomodation, by far the biggest mobile home on site FR4529 is luxuriously decorated inside and out, a real home from home. with the large covered deck area tastefully and beautifully lit up at night we became the centre of attention for inquisitive passers-by on their way to the beach. it was great and we will be returning next year.

I can only describe what we found on our arrival and we are pleased that it appears to have been corrected.

As campers for 16 years with Canvas Holidays we know what to expect from campsite and Mobiles and on this occasion it was not up to standard and do not make negative comments lightly.
