There is a reason that these villas are cheap. Where do I start? I booked a one bedroom villa - only to find that I had been placed in a 2 bedroom with the upstairs locked. Whilst there was the initial "wow" factor when I walked in, it soon became clear that this was not going to be a good stay.
1. There was a mouse running around the bedroom, after a couple of days I named him Harry and we became good friends.
2. The cupboards were hanging off the hinges in the kitchen, the tap looked like it was about to drop off. There was not cold water
3. The pool was in the shade for most of the day
4. They were updating the villa next door so I had builders peering down on me, hammers, saws etc.
5. The breakfast is boring, and mostly cold. The coffee is disgusting
6. The "24 hour butler" is non-existent. Never saw him
7. The staff on the front desk have no idea about what is around them, couldn't even tell me where a restaurant was that I later found out was 2 doors down from the villas. Polite but clueless.
8. Yes the mosquitos are a problem, they bring around coils at about 7pm (I already had about 20 bites before then). The coils work but expect ALL of your clothing, hairbrush etc to smell like coils when you get home.
9. The towels in the bathroom are old and grey.
10. The bed was like sleeping on a slab of concrete. I am seriously not joking, you have been warned.
11. Only has air con in the bedroom - the bathroom and living area are outside. It's hot. So you spend most of your time in the bedroom. (on the concrete bed)
12. I wonder if Harry is OK?
