My sister my 3 children and I booked 2 weeks in Villa Arum ,on Arrival everything looked great but after staying here for 2 weeks thought I'd write an honest review .
The outside area could do with a few more umbrellas as the eating area is in direct sunlight after 12 noon and with only 2 umbrellas we were fighting over very little shade , the pool area tiles very slippery when wet and red hot when dry my 9 year old daughter burnt the balls of her toes the first day ,the upper terrace was very poor with only 2 wicker seats one was broken and no cushions which was a shame as this area of the villa could be made beautiful with the view (extremely disappointed) no outside lights for at lease 5 days on arrival very dangerous coming home in the dark with 3 children up the steps of the villa ( lights on now)
The kitchen was adequate but needed a chair to reach the top shelves I'm 5'3, the villa has 3 bathrooms the power to the showers were poor in 2 bathrooms when were all trying to get ready to go out in the evening, the en-suite in the front bedroom has only a shower (smallest shower ever) with only a shower curtain so this shower makes the bathroom soaked and bedroom if your not careful, the second en-suite shower is in the bath with glass shower door if you move shower door to reach the taps it comes off in your hands .
The weekly clean consists of change of bedding ,towels and clean of bathrooms . No floors cleaned in or outside kitchen or living room not touched.
We having given this villa a 2 star as it is advised as a luxury villa It's nowhere near as we do stay in luxury villas often this was awfully disappointing.
This is the perfect place for your Summer Vacation.
