Villa Castilla, in the heart of Seminyak was the perfect location for our holiday. The villa itself was clean and extremely comfortable. The staff were amazing - they cooked, they cleaned, were helpful in each and every way and were very friendly without being in any way obtrusive.
Unbelievable that this villa is set in the middle of 'eat street'
No matter how busy, noisy, congested the street was, once we stepped through the gate we relaxed and enjoyed the peace and cool environment.
It was fantastic that with a large group of women we could move about as a group or an individual for shopping, food or treatments.
I hope I can return with my adult family, do they too can experience this unique valid experience.
It was great to have the option of a driver who knew the areas well and acted as tour guide as well as unit staff who cooked a variety of breakfasts and maintained the property without intrusion.
I would thoroughly recommend this property!
We were 2 families of 6...had a great time. House staff were so accommodating; driver was amazing. At the heart of Eat Street where we feasted on local food that never disappointed.
Excellent location,staff & rooms
Pool guest room needs bar fridge cannot get to the fridge once main villa is locked for the night
Wifi needs upgrading cannot get wifi in guestroom
We had the greatest stay at villa castilla. They have thought of everything. The villa itself is fabulous with wooden floors, high ceilings and fully air-conditioned. The pool is great and has the added bonus of a pool fence. The staff were outstanding. Yuli was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. We had 2 chef cooked dinners which were delicious. Our breakfast prepared by yuli daily was as good if not better than a resort. The location is perfect. Right on eat street with your choice of shopping and restaurants on your door step. The villa is so quiet with very little street noise. An amazing holiday truly made by the villa and staff.
Our family of 9 stayed here over Christmas and New Years (6 adults, one 7 year old, a toddler and a 5 month old).
As far as location goes, the villa is fantastic. A few metres out the front door and you are on a street filled with shops and restaurants. The villa is far enough back that you are not bothered by the noise of the street (the only exception being New Years - which is to be expected!!).
The villa is great, but is showing its age and could use a little bit of updating here and there. The rooms are a great size and we made good use of the communal areas. The outside space next to the pool also comes in handy - we requested an extra table and chairs to take full advantage of the space! The pool is nice, very deep. It suited our family well, but was a bit smaller than other villas I have stayed at. The villa was able to arrange cots with mozzie nets for the babies which was great! The villa also installed a fence around the pool which provided a bit of peace of mind with the kids (though supervision is still essential).
The villa staff are fantastic.
We had breakfast made by the staff at the villa every morning and it was delicious. We also made use of the chef one evening as well as arranging an additional catered evening. We were very impressed with the food.
The rooms were cleaned daily.
There was an issue on arrival with the air conditioner in one of the rooms, but that was fixed within an hour or so of the team being advised of the issue. One of the rooms did seem to have a gap in the window that was allowing in mozzies, the 7 year old ended up with a number of bites before we identified the problem. We dressed him in long clothes and bathed him in insect repellent, but obviously that is only a short term fix. The stairs can be a bit hard to navigate, so probably not the best for people with knee issues (though there is a room downstairs, so the stairs can be avoided). Again, the villa installed gates at the bottom and top of the staircase to keep the kids from falling.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to book the villa again should we find ourselves in Seminyak.
My friends and I stayed at Villa Castilla for 4 night at the beginning of December and I can't say enough about the experience. Just a few steps from the main road in Seminyak, this villa is in the perfect location to experience everything Seminyak has to offer. Although the villa is just off the main road, it feels tucked away on a quiet, secluded property.
The staff at the villa are fantastic. They cook amazing meals, clean to no end and are beautifully friendly people.
The villa itself is very beautiful and comfortable with a ton of space, lots of room for privacy, a beautiful pool and outdoor space.
I would recommend anyone to stay at Villa Castilla for their next holiday.
