My husband and I recently stayed at the charming Villa Vaucluse for 3 nights in June 2016, and it was absolutely perfect! We had a spacious air-conditioned apartment with fully equipped kitchen, as well as a washer and dryer. We had a small balcony with a pleasant view of swimming pool, tropical plants, etc. Very restful. And this property is... More

We stayed a week at Villa Vaucluse and appreciated having our own kitchen and laundry facilities. Restaurants and shops are close by, and the manager and assistant manager were very helpful with tour bookings and other information.

The apartments were not luxury to start with. They are very basic not a fully functioning kitchen and had to have the door open to make toast. The wifi is not free. The manager charges you unless you book a tour with him which are much more expensive!! I would recommend looking elsewhere for accommodation. The manager was not very... More

Manager is EXTREMELY RUDE AND DISMISSIVE. Online says check in is 12, "Manager" said, no, check in is at 2. Maybe that is something that should be rectified. Went to ask for a complaint form, and that request was promptly refused, because according to the "manager", we did not receive bad service. Was asked if we received an email regarding... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Villa Vaucluse and we enjoyed our stay. The location was in easy walking distance to the restaurants and shopping and the boat terminal where most of the excursions meet. The room was clean and comfortable. We slept very soundly both nights because it was quiet. The kitchen was stocked though we didn't have much... More

I really wish I'd read all the negative reviews before choosing this place. The rooms are old and in need of refurbishment. The beds are very uncomfortable. We couldn't get not even a night of decent sleep. The air conditioning is old and not cooling properly. The manager is very unpleasant and rude. It's almost like he tries on purpose... More

Brett C, Manager at Villa Vaucluse Apartments, responded to this review

Villa Vaucluse has 19 apartments in the complex. A small number are managed by the owner who is not in residence, while the greater majority are managed by me, the resident manager. Sorry to hear your experience here wasn’t as good as you expected. But unfortunately you were not staying in one of the apartments I manage. When you book... More

Looked forward to this stay in the prior three weeks of traveling. Unit was a one-bedroom apartment with cooking and laundry appliances. Unit was clean and comfortable. The “but” regards the WiFi hassle. Description on Hotels.com states free WiFi, but in reality it is very limited. One, yes one, device gets 200 MB per 24 hours. We were two adults... More

We chose this hotel for its location. It is a good size and as an apartment has most things required but is not fully equipped. We were advised to cook with the door open or the smoke alarm would go off. We were advised not to run the air con below 23 or the aircon would turn off. The apartments... More
