If you are a student, it is a good option. If you are a couple looking for a nice quiet relaxing stay without a constant stream of annoying staff and loud noise at night, with an eatable breakfast - don't even think about it. and if you are a family with children - forget it.
We were promised there was internet wifi in the villa. Not only did this not work, but the main lobby wifi was out for most of the 3 days we were there. and when they did get it working for a short period of time, I had to have conference calls in a dark room with no air con and no fans, because the power was out (apparently had been out for days).
On top of that, there were issues with our stove and oven, so they couldn't cook us a proper breakfast (which was dreadful anyway). The staff were unresponsive and unfriendly. When I pointed out there was a dead bird in the front lobby, they just left it there.
The upstairs living area is totally unsafe for children, so we had to use furniture to block off the stairs so they couldn't get up there.
The pool was too deep, so the only place we could swim with the children was on the steps. there was a sudden drop straight away from the stairs. impossible for 1 adult to swim with 3 children who cannot yet swim when you cannot stand up.
Staff kept hassling us every day wanting to know what time we were checking out.
Generally an awful experience, and a typical case of mis-managment of expectations.
