My husband and I have just spent 10 days at Holiday Villa. It was everything we had hoped for and more (thanks to some not so favourable reviews).
We read about a dimly lit, awful lobby... in fact, it was well lit (unless you want it lit up like a hospital), was beautifully decorated, and had a real charm to it.
We read about dirty rooms... ours was very clean, no mosquito's or evidence of rodents, comfortable big bed, good air conditioning, good TV, nice bathroom, plenty of space.
We read about unfriendly staff... we found all staff members very friendly and helpful, even the cleaners.
Anyway... this resort is fantastic. The pool is huge and very clean (which is good since swimming in the ocean made me itch). Even the cocktails at the swim up bar were reasonably priced. The only issue is that lack of shade around the pool, but other than that it's great.
The location of the resort was perfect for us. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance, and heaps more just a 6 RM taxi ride away. As others have said - go to Cactus across the road for breakfast. I don't know what it's like at the hotel, but it's very expensice. The beach and stretch of road that Holiday Villa is located on is much more relaxing and quieter than other areas. It was also a good spot to hire a car from and expore the island. And right on the beach - what more can you ask for?
Overall we very extremely happy with this hotel. We thought it was GOOD value for money, and just a great place to stay. If you want a 5 star hotel with all the trimmings - don't stay here. But if you want a great resort, great pool, clean room, perfect location, for a reasonable price - do stay here.
