“In need of some TLC”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at this villa between 14/6/15 - 28/6/15. On arrival it smelt damp as if it hadn't been used in ages. The sanitary ware was unclean with grime and dirt on the sinks and toilet. Thankfully the outside gardens were lovely although the building itself needed some touch up paint spots. The pool on the first week didn't filter so we had to clean it ourselves, it worked on the second week for some unknown reason but then turned green. The management company did call the pool people who cleaned it a couple of times but it never returned to blue during the rest of our stay. You definitely need a car to get about as its a long way from the harbour, but we did manage to find a few local restaurants that were nice and reasonably priced. Be prepared for noise from the local car wash and dogs as they are both on the go all day!! On the whole I feel that the state of the property can in no way be acclaimed to the owner, it's the management company that is letting it down.

Management Response
9 Jul 2015
Obviously I am very sorry that you found some things not to your liking at my Villa, please accept my apologies, but I do feel that I must correct some misleading comments made. The property was in use the previous week and had been thoroughly cleaned between lettings. If you felt that the sinks and toilet were unclean I can only apologise and I will ensure this is looked into. A comment to the Management Company could have rectified that at the time very quickly. I do not believe that there was a damp smell on your entry to the property – this is the middle of the summer and the property is well aired throughout the year, let alone at this time when all the windows are open etc. Thank you for your comments in connection with the gardens, we do try to keep them looking nice. I now come to what I believe was the main problem you experienced during your stay which was in connection with the pool. The pool is cleaned twice a week by the pool cleaning company who advise the PM company straight away if there are any issues. The pool was cleaned twice during your first week, both at approximately 7am to 7.30am, and there were no reported problems – I can’t understand how you had the need to clean it yourselves apart from perhaps picking up some of the leaves which do continually blow into pools between cleans. The pool company either put the pool onto overflow or they use the internal drains to circulate the water without using the overflow channels; this is their decision based on their experience of our pool and the other 200 or so that they look after. At the beginning of your second week the pool company reported to the PM company that the pool balance tank needed water and that the water had turned green. This can be caused by a variety of things including a build up of sun screen chemicals in the water to name one. Unfortunately once a pool goes green it does take 3-4 days to sort it out. During this time the pool company were on site every day at some point to ensure the process was moving along and the PM company arranged two tankers of water for the pool. Understandably this was a disappointment and although the pool was useable during this time it obviously doesn’t look over inviting when it is not its usual ‘blue’ colour. I can report that there were several other local pools that experienced difficulties over this period, a factor which could point to the spike in temperatures the Island experienced around that time may have been the cause of some of the issues. To your final comment about the PM company, they carry out a good service for me and I can thoroughly recommend them. As stated, they attended to the issues with regards to the pool (they do not directly control the pool) and I believe sorted a couple of minor problems at the beginning of your stay; they were unaware of your concern with the cleaning which could have been sorted for you had it been mentioned. As mentioned at the beginning I am sorry your experience was not up to the standards you expected and I hope that you may be able to visit on a further occasion when we can ensure that everything is 100% for your visit.

I was extremely happy with my stay at this villa it was very clean, spacious and within walking distance from the town and supermarkets. The pool is big enough for a family holiday and is very clean too. Beautiful scenery from the villa and overall a brilliant stay, would defiantly stay again and recommend to family and friends ☺

“Lovely Villa”

Stayed at Villa Tembel 3rd to 10th Oct 2014 for a week with friends, found the villa to have everything we needed and more, villa was clean and spacious and had a great outdoor space to dine out and sit out in the evenings and a lovely swimming pool. 5 minute walk to the supermarket or 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants, welcome pack was a lovely surprise, everything you need to start your holiday, milk , cheese, bread, orange juice, tea, coffee and a bottle of wine, the villa is equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave , cold-water dispenser, has a bath and shower, fans in every room also A/C units which we didn't need, you will find everything you need for a lovely holiday. A hire car would be advisable if you wish to explore more, but seeing as we went for a week to chill we did not hire a car, we walked to a restaurant one evening and got a taxi on 3 other occasions, overall you will not be disappointed with this villa.
