We found this accommodation online and after viewing the photos and referring to trip advisor we thought it looked very beautiful & sounded great.
We booked a Junior Suite & were happy to pay for what we thought was stunning accommodation.
On arrival Elena showed us into a Standard Studio. Being weary travellers we were confused. We questioned ourselves & then Elena who, after some discussion, put us in a more spacious room. Elena implied that she was putting us in a better room than what we paid for when in fact she was putting us in the room that we had booked and paid for!! Not good!!!!
In a nutshell this property is very poorly appointed, the rooms felt sparse, no kettle provided, broken CD player, table lamp on floor, no shower screen, really really musty bedroom, sheets that dont fit the bed. The kitchinette facility is a joke and the private terrace is not private.
This place really lacks attention to detail. For the price we paid I feel ripped off.
When booking please notice that there are no photos shown of the standard studio interior. The double bed is in a loft & is incredibly small. There is not a private balcony or terrace!
I believe Caldera Villas website is incredibly misleading! The staff possibly also, which is sad.
Two positives though were the incredible views & great location.
