“Disappointing, stressful nightmare!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We booked Villa Sunnyside as well as Villa Belvedere next door (rented by the same owner) to accommodate our families and wedding party for a weeks stay during our nuptials. The villa's are both large and, as mentioned in other reviews, have wonderful views from the higher floors.

We had issues before arrival in regards to the cost of the villas. Our agreement stated the price was based on 'x' amount of adults, (to which we added to and paid accordingly for the extra adults), however when we asked whether towels would be included for the children in our party they informed us that we would have to pay full adult price for the two 15 year olds! We felt the age which constituted an 'adult price' should have been made clear or written somewhere and were disappointed (as we assumed 16 is when one is counted as an adult?), especially when the owner suggested we were trying to deceive him which was as far from the truth as one could get and not the level of customer service we would expect from someone in this industry.

As well as all the bank charges for all the transfers... as mentioned in another review, we felt the money they took for electricity and water unfair. As the wedding was in April the AC wasn't used throughout and as we were paying for additional people, we thought appropriate extra allowance be made for them, however it wasn't as far as we know. We were extremely paranoid about extra charges after the treatment we'd received from the very 'business minded' David previous to arrival, thus lights were always turned off when leaving a room and showers kept to a minimum, however, we were charged considerably for these amenities.

Two glasses were broke during the stay to which they charged us for a full set of 12 which was confusing as the glasses didn't match and some were chipped and cracked before our arrival. To top it off and to sum up the way finances are conducted, when they returned the deposit, my husband didn't count it until he was in the car (I know, stupid!) and low and behold there was €5 missing. Only €5 I know but on top of everything else we felt like the whole thing was a scam!

Cleaning was sub standard on arrival. After we complained they came back however our wedding photographer came over the day we moved in and even his first comment was "I hope they're going to clean this before the wedding!". They leave a mop and bucket but it's not ideal arriving at a luxury villa and getting straight into the sweeping and cleaning.

There's a dank musty smell lower down in the house as well so not great for guests staying in the bedroom downstairs.

We went to Malta to get married and wanted to keep everything as stress free as possible, for the guests as well as us. Sadly, renting these villa's was a huge mistake but once you're locked in you're committed so be sure before paying the deposit.

All in all, bar the bad customer service, additional unforeseen charges and cleaning issues they are nice villa's and we enjoyed lying by the pool (Was a bit too cold to get in during our stay!!). There's plenty of parking (We had a number of hire cars between us... there's nothing within walking distance) and awesome views. Would I stay there again? Absolutely not. If they were managed differently, possibly, however we missed the luxuries hotels have to offer of clean rooms and towels daily and in St Julian's and Sliema where we've stayed many times before, and where the majority of our guests stayed, you can get a lot more for your money with much better accessibility to shops, cafes and restaurants.

Maybe we just had bad luck, however what should have been an enjoyable experience, our Australian and English families staying together, meeting for the first time and excited about our wedding turned into a stressful nightmare. We wish anyone staying here the best of luck and strongly hope and pray you don't have a similar experience to us.

“Super Villa”
Reviewed June 25, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Hi,
We have just returned from Villa Sunnyside on 23rd June and we loved it and I couldn't fault it. We were a party of 9 (5 adults and 4 children) and for anyone going with kids this is a great place to stay. The villa itself has 5 floor - lower basement, basement, ground floor, 1st floor and 2nd floor. The lower basement is where the kids play area is and our kids loved it when things got too hot outside. The basement is also a play area with gym equiptment and also has a bedroom with 3 single beds. We didn't need to use the bedroom in the basement room. There is a fully equiped kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven, grill and 5 gas hobs. BBQ, washing machine, kettle, toaster. 4 other bedrooms - 3 double rooms (2 of these en-suite) and a triple room, a big bathroom upstairs and shower room downstairs. Pool and pool area with 3 sun loungers, table and lots of chairs. The villa is very clean and tidy and is in a great location for shops, water park and marine park. There is also a reception area in the villa belevedere next door and the girls there are very helpful - there can help you with places to go and how to get there and they will also organise any taxis for you. As for David and Jane we found them most helpful and very friendly. For us, this was our first time staying in a villa and our villa sunnyside experience was great and thankfully we didn't experience any problems.
