Perfectly located for ease of access for town, cafes, shops, bars, supermarket and all the amenities right on your doorstep, beach in only 5 minute walk too. House is a bit dated but clean and tidy and owners where easy to contact and happy to help with anything they could.
I had a pleasant stay in Villa La Paloma with my family during March and we liked it spacious terraces and the pool which is small, but big enough to refresh yourself during hot days. Villa looks just like on the photos and it has great location. First shop is just a minute away, but although villa is located in the centre, the terrace and garden area are quiet. Owners were helpful and we got a lot of useful informations what to see and do on the island as well as tips about good restaurants in Corralejo and they left us a bottle of wine for welcome. When I count in nice weather during the week, we had perfect holidays and we would be more than happy to come back sometimes again!!
When we arrived at the Villa we were impressed by the size and position, which is near to the shops and town. Unfortunately when we went inside it was obvious as mentioned by previous reviewers, that the Villa is tired inside and poorly maintained. We will post some pictures if we can.
We found that there were no cleaning materials, we had to buy a mop, tea towels, a sink bowl and even Toilet Rolls as there were none left for our arrival. Although we were refunded for this cost. We also didn't have any Maid Service during out two week stay or a change of bedding for the second week. The bedding was very poor quality and the mattresses stained. Overall the Furniture is very cheap.
The Bath upstairs had a large rusty patch, the safe was broken and the light in the lounge was hanging from the ceiling with exposed wiring. The Oven was stained and the Microwave tripped the fuses. Even the Sun Loungers were all cracked except one. It is quite noisy as mentioned by others, and the dogs nearby are a pain, barking through the night and you can also hear the nearby businesses emptying their bins during the night after they have closed for business.
We also were Burgled during the night on our second last night, whilst we all slept, which was very upsetting, particularly as our two young daughters slept just by where the Burglary happened.
Overall it was a poor experience for our Holiday, and although we contacted the Manager several times during and after the Holiday, we were told that we should have expected things not to be perfect when you rent a villa in this price range!! So be warned, luxury or quality fixtures and fittings it is not!!
Villa la Paloma is in a great central location unfortunately there are 3+ dogs on either side of the villa who bark all through the night keeping us awake buy ear plugs they help a little there are recycling bins for the local business's right outside the house people seem to recycle about 11pm .The bedding and mattress's are very low quality ikea old pillled 50%50 polycotton. the pillows are lacking stuffing,no mattress topppers or mattress protectors just thin worn out scratchy sheet on old sprung mattress's also low quality. beddding is the main part of staying in a rental which the owner/operator should invest in to keep customers happy and gaining repeat business.no curtains or blinds in one of the bedrooms not sure why?.would have liked mosquito nets up, Also we booked a 2 wk stay there was no mid clean or fresh laundry available disappointing! when showering the drain in top bathroom seemed to bubble up drenching the floor.the hot water tank takes 1hr to warm up and if your carefull you can get 2 peoples worth of showers.
On the plus side the water pressure is good.the kitchen is very well stocked, There is a lovely cat. the pool guy seemed keen to clean it and the location was fantastic there is a lovely tapas bar next door that do the best coffee I have ever had!
For location and pool area,10/10. Inside the villa needs alot of TLC,upstairs bathroom shower curtain is held together with masking tape,bath rusty. Pillows very old,all areas need a paintjob. Sofa needs to be scrapped as it is falling apart. Kitchen is also in need of upgrading. Bbq was dirty so we didnt use it..in general a deep deep clean and upgrade inside.
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa. Great location, near to fantastic pizza place called pizza Napoli. Also very close to spar supermarket and lots of shops , bars and restaurants.
