“Owners direct villa”

Wouldn't recommend this villa to my worst enemy. It was filthy as it hadn't been cleaned from the previous occupants. The place stank, the beds where sweat stained , one even blood stained. The hotel company were brilliant, they rang the owner but he didn't answer them. They said that this wasn't the first time this had happened. The owner eventually answered my daughter's call but when she asked him to ring back he refused saying it would cost him a fortune. He asked what did we want him to do as he was in the UK and as the cleaner was off ill he couldn't do anything. In the end he hung up on my daughter. The hotel were brilliant they rang the cleaner for us, she also said that he often blamed her. She wasn't off ill at all. The hotel lent us some sheets and towels. The phone call cost us £45 and would you believe when we emailed him he still hasn't replied. SO BE WARNED DO NOT BOOK THIS VILLA. The hotel would be worth looking at though.

I the owner Andrew Thomson have just read this vile review full of lies and am going to have a conversation with Tripadvisor regarding these slanderous remarks!
The writer of this pack of slanderous comments may have something correct...the villa had the sheets and towels changed the next day. The other comments are hugely excarcebated lies by someone who it appears was looking for " compensation " ( a free holiday )....which I wasn't going to surrender with.
Using like a barrage of insults shouting down the phone at me from the moment she arrived was never going to get the desired results.
I stated that I was sorry for a few sheets not being ready in time...and the huge made uo mess amounted a bag of rubbish which needed to simply be put out of he front door.
I would urge ALL PROPERTY OWNERS OUT THERE NOT TO RENT TO THIS PERSON!!
Maybe she works for the hotel grouo??
Hummn.
My cleaner was nit impresssd with her attitude next day either I hasten to add.
Just look at the rest of my reviews by the way over 6 years. Pretty much flawless.
I definitely smell not a horrid smell from the villa but A RAT !
A word with my Solicitors will be happening too unless tripadvisor rightly so delete this venomous review.

“Great Villa & great location”
Reviewed 8 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

A great 3 bed Villa & great location. Really nice to have a private garden and pool, within a hotel complex, so the best of both worlds.

“Just Right”

The villa was very well furnished with comfy beds and all the bits and bobs you would need for a self catering stay on Sal. As it turned out, we took advantage of the all inclusive package available at the superb Melia Dunas resort with the villa is part of, so didn't actually use the catering facilities as much as we thought.
The beds are exceptionally comfy and all four of us slept very well each night with no unwelcome visitors either - Mosquitos.
There is air con if you need it, a washing machine which is a god send and plenty of water for showers.
The plunge pool is fantastic too and we ended up for the last few days of our holiday using the garden, loungers and pool at the villa rather than the main hotel which was great.
There is building work going on opposite the villa for a new 7 start hotel due to open at the end of the year but the noise from this was minimal and it certainly didn't bother us.
All in all, a fantastic experience made all the better by the efficiency of the owner Andrew in getting all the necessary bits to us in a timely manner. We will be back!
