Three of us shared Villa 2b which was spacious and very clean. We arrived when it was dark so were pleasantly surprised when we opened the curtains in the morning. We had not seen pictures before arriving and the lawn looked great and well kept down to the pool which looked very inviting. There were small trees and flowering shrubs which looked gorgeous.
Our patio was quite large with high walls separating us from the next villas. This gave us a good deal of privacy for sunbathing - which we did a lot as it was hot and sunny!
A weird aspect of the groundsman/pool man was that he insisted on turning on the sprinklers to water the lawn about 8.30am when he arrived and turning them off at 10am. At this time the temperature was already in the high 20s so the grass did get scorched. Weirder was the fact that the sprinklers sprinkle across the patios so it was impossible to get to off the patio before 10 without getting soaked! The lower sprinklers near the pool made sure that the sunbeds by the pool were all soaked as well.
The pool itself was quite good and the water very warm by the end of the afternoon. In my opinion the water level in the pool was too high meaning that the skimmers were not working properly. I checked a couple and they had virtually nothing in them at the end of the day but the pool had loads of dead insects floating - I got stung by a wasp in the water. Like many hotel pools this one needed some maintenance on the tiles but was OK.
We all had very firm beds - which I found too firm - and horrible lumpy pillows. Bring your own! Our friend had the en-suite with a small balcony and we had a twin room which only had the beds and a small chest of drawers.
The kitchen was adequate but as other reviewers have said really needed a cooker as the combo microwave wasn't much use. Great that in addition to a fridge freezer the kitchen had both a washing machine and dishwasher - big plus.
Staff were always friendly and helpful.
If the owners were prepared to invest some money - probably a few millions Euros - this could move up to four star accommodation e.g. better beds, pillows, towels, furniture, new patio furniture, sort the pool, wifi in every villa, barbecue in every villa plus a kitchen 'basics pack' of washing up liquid, dishcloths, coffee filters and coffee.
Having said that, we all enjoyed our stay!
