Hi, having read all the reviews we were really looking forward to our stay in the villa. However, it was not quite up to our expectations. While the villa itself is well laid out and the pool and the view beautiful there were some aspects which were not all that great. The main lounge was very dreary with lots of old sofas and chairs covered in mismatched throws. The TV was great but the bookshelf full of videos was pointless as there is no video player just a DVD player (and no DVDs). The kitchen was well equipped but could do with some new plates and mugs as most of the ones supplied were chipped.
The bathrooms and bedrooms were nice but the lack of linen and towels was a bit of an issue. While there is a huge laundry room, and I have no problem washing/drying items I did find having to strip the beds, wash, dry, iron and remake them all in one day a bit irritating. As we stayed for three weeks I had to do this a number of times. An extra set of linen would have solved this problem.
The outside furniture has seen better days, especially the sun loungers and chairs. The barbeque was not very good and after a couple of attempts we did not use it. However, overall the villa is nice, the location is good and Ivan was very helpful in organising tours for us.
