“Would of been better without the Mozzies”

We found another listing on tripadvisor for the same villa with a comment from another traveller who had the same issue, she was wise enough to leave and go somewhere else after 1 day. i only saw this when we came home, I wish I had seen it before - I don't think i would have booked it. I am expecting a response to this, to say the hosts offered an alternative, for us to leave and mosquito repelling equipment. All this is true, but it doesn't change the fact the problem was dealt with or our experience.

We booked 9 nights end of September - early October. This holiday was a first family vacation with our 3 month old baby. We wanted privacy, own pool, option to cook for ourselves, be close enough to the restaurants and beach. Marco, the driver and staff are very lovely and did everything they could to ensure we had pleasant stay.

Villa Gaya 1, has a problem with Mosquitos. In the course of our stay there we saw off an excess of 500 minimum and that is no exaggeration. We are not inexperienced travellers, and are exposed to mosquitoes on a daily basis. In our early 40's, we live in China, have backpacked around most of the world over the past 20 years, slept in beach huts, jungle huts through to 5-star accommodations. Contrary to our host's suggestion that perhaps we'd only stayed in hotels before, which we felt to be a highly patronising justification in his mind to pass off the excessive number of mosquitos in this villa. The best thing to do in this situation would of been to show some empathy rather than passive aggressive suggestions - we felt quite irritated after this.

We were offered to leave and move somewhere else - with a baby in tow, it was defeating the object of a nice relaxing holiday and we didn't have the energy to look for something else. In hindsight, I wish this is what we had done. The host also offered for us to see the villa next door, but as this was where he was staying the suggestion put us off. He asked the cleaning staff to come everyday at 4 and light repellent smokers outside. This didn't work either.

At night we ended up hiding in the air conditioned bedroom, with the mosquito net down around the bed rather than actually relaxing in the mosquito infested living space. Some nights were better than others. One night was so bad, even the cleaner the next day was shocked at the number of little dead mosquito bodies that littered the floor of the villa. By the way, we couldn't sweep them up ourselves as the floor sweeper was locked away and only the cleaners had access. It was pretty gross having to walk around on a dirty floor till they arrived.

The Villa itself is ok, it is a little worn particularly the kitchen/bathrooms. There is a big build up of limescale, dust and dirt in the bathroom. Our towels were only changed once. Bedding not at all, but that was because we asked the cleaners not to go in our bedroom. After the first day, they went in and after they left 4 mosquitos managed to get inside the mosquito netted bed. We were being really strict about this space, as it was the only place we could protect the baby, so every day this after we asked them to leave the bedroom for cleaning.

The cleaners & driver were nice, Marco makes you feel as though he is being helpful. They'd been flexible accommodating for the baby and payment.

The villa itself is quite a walk to the restaurants and an even further walk to the beach and beach clubs. It's a quiet area, with lots of villas.There is a school close by and can get very noisy a few times a day.

I can't really say i was overly impressed. I felt like we put up with this villa, whereas we should of just taken the opportunity to go when it was offered.

Management Response

We thank you for your lengthy feedback. Yes, we do have some mosquitos at the villas on occasions and we always do what we can when guests request assistance. For that reason, when you asked for help, we provided you with mosquito coils, mosquito spray, electric mosquito dispensers, mosquito lotion, a baby’s bassinet with mosquito netting and already in the bedrooms, we provide bed mosquito nets. As nothing we offered, seemed to be adequate, we even offered a full refund, but this offer was not taken up. We note that you are seasoned travelers but somehow you found your stay with us to be frustrating, mainly due to the mosquitos. Other guests have understood that mosquitos are part of the deal when living in a tropical climate and in an outdoor villa. The towels were cleaned once only because as you said, you were “strict” and the staff were refused entry to the bedrooms. We appreciate your comments and we do our best to keep all guests happy during their stay.
