We had originally booked a two bedroom villa, but a week before we were due to leave, the management advised us that this option was no longer available and that they would substitute two one bedroom villas, this was not a great start to our stay at the Wolas...
First the positive stuff....The staff of the Wolas were fantastic, greeting us on arrival with a cold towel and cold drink was just what we needed. The breakfast menu was excellent, perfectly cooked and served by "Leo" and the room service meals were also delicious...The Villas were, at first glance, fantastic, but as the week progressed you could start to see the age of the rooms...
Now, the negative stuff...the mosquitos were quite a bit of a problem and the Wolas solution was a can of fly spray and a tube of mozzie repellent in each room, the least they could have provided was one of those electrical mosquito repellent devices that our other villas had supplied. The towels were old and ragged as were the sheets and quilt cover, plus they did not even have a top sheet, so you had to sleep under a quilt with the air conditioner on to try to keep the mosquitos away. Both of our Villas showed signs of lack of general maintenance, on the first morning, our bed even broke right in the middle....the sliding door kept coming off of the track and the hairdryer was cracked and would barely heat up...!!!
The promised "regular" shuttle bus only went twice a day, once at 10am and then at 2pm and definitely one way!!!
Unfortunately, I don't think we will be back to stay and would not recommend this to any of our friends....
