We were very excited after we received our broshure from Gypsy Villa, however, the pics had to be taken LONG ago.The place now looks very run down & old.Everything needs a coat of paint or updating.It may have been grand once, not anymore.Major landscaping is needed on the mainland and island.The office (and first impression) was a mess.The beaches were not maintained, especially on the island.The slide is crooked, and in water that is too shallow.We hit our bottoms everytime we went down.There are old cars, boats, rafts, grills laying around.Looked kinda like a junkyard.
Read every word in the broshure because if you need anything extra, they will charge you for it.They take pets, but charge you $15/day.FYI-My only request from them was, what I thought was not too unsual, was met with a reply of "we usually do not supply extra toilet paper".I was also told "my generation" expects a lot and it used to be (back in her generation, I guess) guests brought "everything".She did give me 2 rolls, though.I didn't have the nerve to ask for paper towels,so I bought my own the next day.
The lake is beautiful and there is one really nice playset on the island.
We would not stay here again.We actually left a day early, which we never have ever done before on any vacation in 13 years.We truly are not fussy people and have had many awesome vacations, this was not one of them.
