Me my husband and 2 children (5 and 22months) have just returned from 2 weeks at Joinal. We were very worried about going given the negative comments about the state of the villas and security.
Our villa was cleaned pretty much every day, you must take into account the villas are getting old so can't be spotless, however we had no complaints, floors were cleaned, beds were made and new towels were provided everyday. There are built in stair gates, which were a god send, the kitchen is well equipped but we tended to BBQ or eat out most nights rather than cook. The double bed was a little hard and will definately be taking my pillow with me next year, but the single beds and the cot that was provided were very comfortable - the kids slept brilliantly - There are NO issues with security all shutters and windows are secure and the main door has a double bolt and there is an alarm - there is no chance of anyone getting in the villas. The television is small but who wants to sit around watching it on holiday anyway - we certainly didn't.
The grounds are beautiful, secure and well maintained the 2 pools are great, with the smallest being perfect for my youngest to splash about in. I hardly saw my 5 year old who made lots of friends, while my youngest was able to enjoy some freedom and run around to his hearts content. There are a few bars, restaurans and shops nearby, but we hired a car to make shopping and trips out easier.
We made lots of lovely new friends and the weather was just perfect, we are very sad to be home.
All in all we had a fantastic, relaxing, fun and entertaining holiday that was good value for money - will definately be returning next year so please don't be put off this place by the negative and very over critical comments
