The Villa Marina is a lovely B&B, run by friendly owners. The owners gave us lots of useful advice about places to visit in the area. The place was very clean and the breakfast was very good too.
We would recommend this B&B to others however be clear on which room you are expecting. We booked through "Late rooms". The room we booked was a superior double room at a discounted rate of £75. However having settled into the room and looked at the guest information it was clear we were in the standard double room - which was quite small. We didn't want to cause a fuss since it was late.
We accept that the price of a standard room is £75 however that was not what we booked - you don't buy something at a discounted rate only to be given something of lesser value at the cash desk. We did give the owner feedback on this however the response was rather unsatisfactory - detailing why they don't have bunk beds in the rooms which seemed irrelevant. Possibly an honest misunderstanding but it did seem that they had decided that since we had paid the cheaper rate we should stay in the cheaper room so that they could still rent out the more expensive one.
Anyway don't let that stop you from staying there - just be clear from the outset which room you are expecting.
