“Fabulous location.......but!”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

Such a perfect location,but could be SO much better with a bit of tlc ,and upgrading beyond 1990!:lots of annoying shortcomings.....light bulbs need replacing,plug on the kitchen sink missing,patio furniture filthy and really cheap,new TV with no instructions,cheap covers on sofas that must be 15 years old,army of ant like things all over the kitchen work tops,kitchen sink and work surfaces all ingrained with dirt.
All minor things that show nobody cares as long as the rent comes in.
This was our 6th visit and we go for the location,but with very little effort and expense,the place could be great.however since our first visit the only difference is the new TV and now after 4 visits we have wifi.we notice that it's well booked up for next year already so why not spend just a little of your £40000 a year rent on an upgrade?

“Stunning views and great location but........”

This villa has the potential to be stunning but it's dated and needs to be refurbished. The review that was written in January 2013 still stands. Sofas are the same, kitchen and bathrooms are in a poor condition too. The cleanliness left a lot to be desired and we complained about the pool as well. Someone came and cleaned it, added tablets and fluid then it was ok to use. I thought with what it cost to rent that it would of been a better standard. We all had a wonderful holiday and we loved Playa St Juan just shame about the villa. It wouldn't take a lot to bring it up to a better standard and I would pay a higher price and would recommend it to friends!

“Great place for a relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 10 April 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Our group was 3 couples - my parents, aunt and uncle, me and my husband and our 6 month old. Location was great. San Juan is lovely and quiet, but with a nice promenade, beach, local shops, restaurants on the promenade. My husband and I studied Spanish at uni so were apprehensive about going somewhere too touristy, but San Juan was very Spanish. Lovely. Villa was well equipped with fantastic views from the balcony of the ocean across to La Gomera. Lovely pool. We spent all our time on the balcony around the table.
Bedrooms in the basement would benefit from air conditioning as it got very warm. We would go back this year but another family is joining us and sadly it's not big enough.

“There are better places to stay for your money!”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I am part of a family group who has been travelling to various destinations around the World for the past 15 years. We are all in our mid to late sixties and expect a high degree of quality wherever we stay. On the previous two years, we have stayed in villas on Lanzarote both of which were superb. On the face of it, this villa should have equalled the others, the location and general appearance of the villa was very good, being literally a stones throw from the sea and sited right on the edge of town. It is spacious and airy but as you take a closer look, the blemishes become apparent. Keys for accessing the building were left in a safe, however the safe was broken so anyone could have found them. Likewise the safe indoors was stuck open so valuables, passports, money etc could not be securely protected. Furniture in the living area had old curtains draped over them, we thought this was for protection whilst the villa was unoccupied but it was to hide the shabby quality of the upholstery beneath! In the kitchen, the acrylic sink was ingrained with dirt and we played host to a family of what appeared to be a brown version of what we call in England "Thunderbugs" These lived under and around the sink and other kitchen areas and were constantly around despite spraying and laying traps! We like to cook in for some of the time, but utensils were of poor quality and cutlery and glasses were mismatched. If you are a stickler for having the right glass for the wine you are drinking, forget it! A barbecue was used in torchlight because the longlife bulb illuminating the area had "blown" with no ladder to reach it and no replacement bulb. The bathrooms need attention with at least one of the shower heads held together with tape. Generally the villa was shabby and in need of a good clean.
Normally we would expect a manual to be available for the villa and the area telling us where things are, how the tv works etc but we could find nothing and when one of the party fell ill, we had to ask around to find some help. It appeared to us as if the owner had walked out of the villa in 1990 and had not been back since. This place needs a serious upgrade. In the current economic climate, we all expect value for our money and until this place is dragged into the twenty first century we shall look elsewhere! We don't do retro!
