“Large villa in private grounds”
Reviewed April 3, 2015 for a stay in March 2015
people found this review helpful

The outside area and the fab photos on the site will encourage you to book this villa. Unfortunately I have to agree with a lot of the comments on the last review. The garden area is large, plenty of sun loungers, the pool is a good size but too deep, especially for those with younger children as no shallow end, plus steep steps for accessing the pool. It would also look better if pool toys and cleaning equipment could be stored out of sight, perhaps in a storage box as there is plenty of space for one.
Did not like the main bedroom, strange going through utility area to enter it, plus the fact that the window opens on the alley behind the villa made us reluctant to open bedroom window to air the room, good shower though in ensuite.
Really think the owner could do with upgrading curtains in all bedrooms, ideally to those with black out linings. I actually thought it was a shower curtain hanging at the 3rd bedroom window, though closer inspection revealed it wasn't, and the curtain didn't cover the width of window, so no lie-ins for parents with children sleeping in this room as they'd be awake as soon as sun rose.
There is nothing the owner can do about the adjoining villa being abandoned and by the looks of it being occupied by homeless people, (we went for a nosy seeing as the patio door had been removed and were shocked to see mattresses on the floor), it was a little disconcerting. Having said that the the walls on the villa are high with a locked entrance gate and provide great privacy.
The owner had provided lots of equipment so you can watch british tv, follow the instructions and it is available. Great music system, allowing you to play music on external speakers whilst in garden area and fab wifi connection.
In the welcome book the owner suggests guests leaving items for other guests to use and we agree with that. A welcome pack of cleaning goods would have ideal such as washing up liquid and cleaning sponge/cloth but there was nothing left. On our departure we have left washing up liquid, sponges, washing machine liquid and conditioner, insect spray, these were all items we purchased for use during our stay but couldn't possibly use up before departure so hopefully the next guests will be able to use them.
Ian has a good support team over there, Laura came round promptly when we mentioned a problem to her and she also arranged for a very prompt visit from the maintenance man when we couldn't get the jacuzzi to work.
The villa is roughly a ten minute walk in to town if you use the short cut going along the alley at the side of the villa, you're walking over a rough path but it's a lot quicker than using the main paths and roads from the villa. If you have a car then there is a free car park just as you drive in to Playa Blanca and a short walk from there to the shops, restaurants and seafront.
The weather was unseasonably cold the first few days when we were there, luckily there was a radiator we could plug in in the bedroom, couldn't find any heating for the main living area. Later on in the week we spotted an air conditioning unit in the small office but no units elsewhere in the villa so not sure if we had activated that whether it would have heated the main living area?
We really enjoyed Playa Blanca and our holiday but would look for a better location if we were to holiday here again.

“Just an ok stay”

people found this review helpful

My partner and I have rented many villas in playa blanca over the last 4 years this one was not one of the better ones firstly we did not like the area or the estate it was on its a bit like a rabbit warren lots of alley ways / passage ways walking round I would think about 30% of the villas are derelict/empty including the attached villa next door it had mattress on bedroom floor but nothing caused us any problems we always left both TVs on and lots of lights when we went out at night on arrival the entrance gate was broken off one hinge but a call to the maintenance Man and it was fixed so that we were able to lock it we have never had to walk through a utility room to get to the master bedroom and I did not like the fact that the bedroom window was on the alley way behind when people walked by late at night talking it woke us up also never had only 1 door/entrance to a property before with a cc tv camera on them mmmmmm personally I don't want to see mops/buckets dustpans and kids inflatables all on display they could either go in the small office or be put away in a storage unit for people to get out if they want them now were not thick but 6 different remotes to operate the tv "system" is a bit to much but the wifi did work very well the pool was always nice and warm although the steps in are very steep difficult for little ones I would think also the paint is coming of the bottom in places there are only 2 proper wine glasses in the unit but plenty of everything else kitchen wise Laura the villa manager was lovely and does a very good job with what she has but for the money you

Not the best location and property could do with a little overhaul (bathroom grout, paintwork, rusting around toilet, door and gate locks) but overall a nice property and ideal for families with kids.

“Excellent villa in an ideal location!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The villa is well equipped with good sized rooms & excellent facilities (sky tv, Apple tv, PlayStation, fans, iron, hairdryer etc). The pool is a good size & well heated, it was never cold. Going in to the hot tub was a great way to end each day. It was only a 15min walk in to the town to the supermarket, shops, bars & restaurants. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone that is looking for a nice, relaxed holiday. Ian was great at answering any questions I had & was very helpful.
