Absolutely fantastic. There was 8 of us, family and friends. The villa is huge. We never felt crowded. Could easily fit more people. The villa was clean. The pool area was lovely. The service we received from villasduma was outstanding. We used the mini bus service quite a lot while there and was always reliable and a really good price....
