The villas are well spaced out and very private. The welcome pack was very good with milk, butter, cheese, ham, water, red wine, oils, bread, jam and eggs. We rushed to supermarket before we arrived and really didn't need to.
We were upgraded to a 4 bed villa 9.2 and it was one of the best villas in terms of size and view. They are equipped with more than you need. We haven't used a villa for years and missed having a daily cleaning service. We stayed for a week and didn't have anything replenished ( although you could pay for this service as an extra - also the washer and dryer were very good) but it did mean we were left alone and could relax.
Mark is always on hand during the week and can be contacted in an emergency by phone at the weekend.
We had a late flight but Mark allowed us to use another villa as ours was booked out. This was really useful.
We had a problem with the air conditioning when we arrived on the Saturday but the engineers arrived first thing Monday morning and fixed it. Every room has a unit and they are so powerful.
We hired a car for the week and felt we needed it as we had elderly people in our party - the main resort was a good 10 mins away by car and 20 mins to the marina. Although not totally necessary as there are a few shops locally and a few good restaurants including an Indian.
The weather wasn't great while we were there and as our villa was high up the winds were very high. I imagine this is great during the warmer months.
It was lovely to eat out as there are some fab restaurants but was also great to eat on the terrace? Lani's at the Marina do takeaway pizzas which were fab.
The security guard is around day and night and always gives you a wave.
The pool was cleaned every other day. It can be very slippy so I suggest you wear pool shoes.
The barbecue was great ( although hard to light with the high winds) we used Ropers supermarket (papagayo end well signposted) it has a great butcher meat and fish counter and a well stocked supermarket. We had 5 great sirloin steaks for 13 euros and it was delicious. You can ask the butcher for exactly what you need. It can be tricky in a basic supermarket especially finding things like plain pork sausage etc.
The cleanliness is great and we didn't see a single insect or bug while we were there but a fair few moscittos so its a good idea to take the plug ins.
All in all a great week and would return.
If you have never been before we recommend Timanfaya Fire Mountain. It's number one visitor attraction and its amazing! My 9 year old Son hasnt stopped talking about it.
Please mail me if you require any further info - also reviewed a fair few restaurants.
