“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

This place isn't mega smart but these basic apartments really do the trick and is great value for money. A short bus ride into the old town, many restaurants close by and the beach. The pool is great especially during a heat wave. Would have no problem in returning to this accommodation. The views from the balcony are fantastic.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

I stayed in the "hostel dorm" portion of Villa Valjalo, and it was by far the worst place I had ever stayed at in all my travels through Europe over the past five years. Perhaps the apartments that are available for rent are nice, but what was advertised as a hostel dorm was disgusting.

Mattresses on the floor, which were walked on by other travellers, ants and with overbooking, I was moved to another spare room in another person's home, and made to share a mattress with a complete stranger. When I commented on this, I was told "That's how you meet people."

The directions given to find the place are awful and it took me about two hours to find the location. This was apparently the case with at least three other travellers I spoke with. However, the place does have a pool, which was a welcome relief on hot days, and the view of the cruise ships in the harbour was lovely. Unfortunately, those two good points are not worth the horrible dorm. I would warn everyone away from this place. Horrible treatment overall.

Room Tip: Mattresses on a dirty floor of what looks like an old dance studio
