This was my 4th visit to Club Fantastico and unfortunately it was disappointing. While the rooms are still well appointed and comfortable and the view spectacular, the rest of the villa needs a great deal of improvement. As usual, the hot tub was not working, something which was more easily overlooked during previous visits when there were no other major issues. The pool needed cleaning as well. Towards the end of our stay the water was so cloudy we didn't even want to use the pool.
The new managers were not very welcoming and actually made us feel uncomfortable at times. While I have never met Brian and from other reviews he sounds great, the previous hosts, Peggy and Mike, were wonderful, fun, outgoing and they always went out of their way to go the extra mile to make sure everyone had a great time.
The beautiful kitchen which we always use to cook group meals was filthy. Everything had to be cleaned thoroughly before being used. In addition, the dishwasher and toaster were both broken.
While I have fond memories of CF from past visits, I do not think I will be staying here again unless the villa undergoes a drastic overhaul and the hosts learn something about hosting.More
