My husband and I stayed at the 4 bedroom villa for a unique vacation experience and we LOVED the entire experience!! We decided we wanted more than just a hotel room, all-inclusive type of vacation. We had the entire 3 story villa to ourselves and it is situated directly on the crystal clear blue ocean and it has absolutely fantastic views of the ocean from every room in the villa. The proximity to the ocean is the REASON why people rent out these villas in the first place. If you love to be literally be on the water and look at beautiful water then this is the place for you!!
We found the villa to be clean, which is very important. Since we are novice "villa renters" we really appreciated Jean (our staff) coming into town and showing and us where to get groceries and where to change money. She helped us plan meals and Jean did not dissappoint. ( if you want everything done for you and not have to lift a finger the staff will do everything for you ) I am a picky eater and food can make or break a holiday for me and Jean was WONDERFUL. We had a variety of dishes which included curried shrimp, jerk chicken, shrimp with white wine and pasta, lobster and even simple meals like hamburgers and sandwiches for light lunches. Everything was delicious and healthy (I did not gain any weight when I was away--I did ask her to cook healthy for us).
It is a very quiet and relaxing place and since we had been to PA several times we decided to do nothing on this vacation. Jean was very respectful and I rarly felt like there was another person in the home with us. She would clean when we were on the sun deck and then we only saw her at meal time. Jean was always on time and had the meals ready exactly at the time we specified.
What you see on the Lolivya website is what you get. The pictures are accurate. The villa is well laid out and every bedroom has its own bathroom. It can easily sleep 8 people very comfortably.
The dislikes were really minor and I almost feel guilty mentioning anything keeping in mind that reviews are subjective. There was no TV in the master bedroom. This was not a big deal but it would be a "nice to have" as we enjoy a little tv before bed. The TV in the living room was small but it did have satellite and there were A LOT of channels and that was a HUGE perk as we always found something to watch when we chose to watch TV.
There are several sea kyaks and we did that almsot everyday to see the area and to get some exercise.
We felt very safe and felt we had all of the comforts of North America. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at a villa and it really can be GREAT value if you are staying with a group of people or if you are able to make your own fun!! The villa does have 3 staff for a larger group and you can get one of the staff or an extra person as a nanny if that is something that you need.
We can not wait to go back and experience the beauty that the blue lagoon has to offer. We loved LOLIVYA and would highly recommend the villa!
