We were given a 2 bedroom villa for our stay and found this particular configuration very strange. In the main building was a nice kitchen and living area as well as an okay bathroom. We assumed our Queen bed would be upstairs, but after taking our cases up there, only found bunks. Puzzled, we retraced our steps but couldn't find the other bedroom.
Outside the villa, across a paved area was another door. We had to unlock this with our keys and found a box of a room which contained the queen bed. No bathroom. If you were staying here with young children, they would be in the main villa, upstairs and you would be in a different building. Weird?
To visit the bathroom through the night, we had to put clothes on, go out our bedroom door, cross the pavers, unlock the villa door then do the opposite to return. To make it worse, the queen bed was uncomfortable and we both had back and neck aches by the end of our two night stay. The water pressure was very poor. The neighbours sounded like they were in the same room. There were no views.
Positives? The kitchen was modern and very well equipped. The villa was light and airy.
Although I'm willing to say that not all villas would be configured in the way ours was, it would certainly be something to check on if you were staying there with young children.
I cannot recommend Allure.
