Hi I went here with my family of 11 for 10 nights and the villa is lovely and the pool is big the only thing we didn't like was how the strip was so close by and anyone could walk in and music was so loud at nite time wouldn't recommend for for kids but overall we had a grate hoilday
Never again!! Villa was robbed during first night whilst out for 2 hours!
We booked villa Paveo for a 3 night stay for a hen weekend with 10 girls .
We arrived, check in was fine,
The villa was nice but we were slightly concerned as not gated, anyone could wonder around the back to the pool area. (Other villas in the same area, were gated)
It was 5 minute walk to the strip, we enjoyed the first day around the pool, then got ready and headed out to the bars about 9.30pm.
We left the 1 key we were given in the key safe outside as the owner advised- in case anyone wanted to go back early.
We put passports in the safe with some money also.
2 of the girls headed back at 11.30pm, to find glass on the floor near the patio door and it had been smashed in. In the space of us being out for 2 hour, we had been broken into and robbed. We felt like we must have been watched going out!
They had used a beach towel which was left outside to dry, to smash the patio door and open it.
Money was taken from the front bedroom which was the 1 with the safe in it.
Luckily handbags, designer sunglasses etc were not taken, just cash!!
We called the owner who arrived and also the police, they took statements and nothing else was done.
We felt shuck up, and concerned for our safety.
We then packed and left the villa at 1am and found ourselves searching for a hotel to continue our holiday. Luckily we found a nice hotel and carried on the holiday.
The villa company would not refund us any money and advised to claim on our own holiday insurance, which would mean us paying our excess!!
Our hotel obviously cost us more as we had to them check in and pay at the hotel, the villa was not secure with a smashed patio door!
Our third time using Columbia to book our villas and never dissapoints. We arrive every April as a group of 17 women. This year we had Villa Pavao and Andorinha which are next to each other both with pools. Villa Pavao is bigger with a larger pool area but same layout as Andorinha. We always feel safe in these villas with its own gated driveway. Ideal location just off the strip but quiet street and never had a problem with other party goers near the villas. Air con in all rooms clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend these villas and the customer service is top notch!
When we first arrived at the villa, we were delighted to find it in a safe area but within walking distance of everything you could need. It is beautifully decorated with plenty of roomand great facilities also - a huge pool, a snooker table, table tennis, plenty of sun loungers. It is less than a ten minute walk to the beach and has plenty of great shops and restaurants nearby too. It is in a very safe complex and we all thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The gardenersand maintenance workers were all lovely and happy to help with anything.
