I have just come back from an amazing holiday with my family ( 14 of us ) and had a fantastic time. The villa was out of this world, enough room for us all and for once we didn't get under each others feet :-)
Kids ( and men ) were kept entertained for hours with the Poole/football table and the Hot Tub was fab too.
Lee the maintaince man was very nice and helpful to us, we would call him up if we needed and he would be to us within 1/2 hour.
Gordon and Wendy ( the villa owners ) are such a lovely couple very helpful to, managed to get us car hire for £12 a day!!
We have even just booked again for next summer and can't wait.
It was a nice area to stay in, defiantly a car needed but you can hire one for very cheap. 10min drive and your in Ayia Napa.
Can't wait to stay with you next year, thanks again for an amazing family holiday we had... Love Cyprus!
We stayed here for 8 nights in September.
The villa was lovely, if a little remote but the views were stunning looking down to the ocean over Ayia Napa. You would definetly need a car if you are staying here. Even when we went out by taxi they really didn't know where to find this villa on the way back as it was pretty remote.
The villa was down a dirt track past several other large villas. It stood proud on top of the hill which ment we had a lovely breeze most evenings to take the heat off a little.
The villa was well equipped with everything we may have needed including washing & drying facilities, coffee machine, dish washer, air conditioning in every room, jacuzzi, outside & rooftop bar the list is endless. I myself had emailed the owners as we had a baby with us and they were more than happy to provide a high chair & cot bed.
All in all a beautiful villa apart from one downfall.
Sadly the people who own it have left a chap called Lee I believe to run the villa. Upon arrival we found him very very rude which left a sour taste.
Our family members had been in Cyprus almost two week before they were due to come to the villa & so they had a drive over to the villa one afternoon to see the location & to see how close local amenities etc were to the villa. They saw that the villa was empty & that the cleaner was there sorting out after the last lot of guests. They approached the cleaner & asked if it was possible just to call inside & have a little look around. They were told they were fine to and had a quick look around some of the rooms (mainly to check where elderly relatives would stay & for getting an idea for things for the wedding).
When we all arrived to check in on the 5th we were met by Lee who was extremely rude, Infact my ears could not believe how rude he was. He told us how people were not welcome to just walk into the villa uninvited and look around. We did not just walk in, we would not just walk in. We asked and made sure we were ok first from the lady who was there cleaning. She had said we were fine to go in otherwise we would not have. He basically called us liars and said she hadn't said we could go in. We pointed out several times that the British lady there cleaning had said we were welcome to come in & look. There were no language barriers so definetly no crossed wires. For Lee to tell us the cleaner had told us not to go in & that she had to reclean the whole villa again after we had a quick look around is ridiculous.
When we arrived the cot bed wasn't there. We mentioned it to Lee who said he would bring it round for us shortly. We waiting until almost 9pm and had to ring him to check when he was going to drop by with it, which conveniently he said he was just setting off with it. We have a 7 month old baby who was extremely over tired, surely he could have seen we had a small baby when we arrived & would have thought not to leave it so late to come. I think he forgot he was due to bring it & that's why we had to chase this with him to bring it up.
A couple of days before we were due to leave we had a beautiful wedding in the grounds with over 100 guests - which I must add was pre advised before booking the villa as this was one of the reasons for booking this specific villa with large outside space and stunning views.
We had a special cover over the pool so it was safely covered and so that we had a little extra space. Once the cover was removed after the wedding we noticed a tile around the edge of the pool had a chip missing so obviously we wanted to let Lee know. He came to inspect the edge of the pool & said that in total we had cracked fourteen tiles. I have to be honest I could hardly see these cracks he was saying we had caused and really don't think our pool cover would have caused them all & believed he was out to earn a few extra euros. These cracks could well have been there a while but obviously we had no proof as you wouldn't go inspecting closely all tiles like that. He had our bond money so were pretty much cornered. We called our pool cover company who said the would come and rectify any damage but Lee wanted to use his own contact, which is fair enough I can understand that. He made a call and within literally five minutes another british guy was there to look at the tiles & work out a price for removing the tiles & putting new ones in. We didn't expect this to be cheap, I'd have guessed 150-200 euros max to source fourteen new tiles, cut out the old (which we know didn't take more than one hour as it was done while we had nipped out in this space of time) and to fit the new ones aswel as labour. We got a quote back a day or so later for is to be told it was 550 euros! We were flabbergasted. We almost couldn't believe such a cost. As Lee had our bond we had no choice but to pay this but can't help but think he was taking a good share of the money to replace those thirteen tiles!!
All in all this villa is in a beautiful location, has stunning views and is very well equipped and spacious enough with a large pool. I would loved to have marked the stay here to a five star but really have to say the whole holiday was tarnished due to the attitude and manner of Lee. The downfall is the management that are left to run the villa & I hate that on this occasion that this has left us feeling dissapointed with our stay and tarnished our time in the villa and could therefore not recommend friends or family to stay here in the future if it was being managed by the same people.
We stayed at this villa with a group of 25-30 year olds and it was amazing! Could not fault it one bit, the pool is huge and easily big enough for everyone, lovely bbq area for when you need to get out the sun. Location is only 5 minutes from shops but would recommend a hire car. The services of the taxi company provided are fantastic and were available any time of the day and night! They even helped with finding restaurants etc. when we struggled. Would definitely recommend this villa to any group/family.
We stopped here for my Son and Daughters in law wedding.. and I must say what a fantastic place.Very luxurious with all you could want . A fantastic pool. Two Bars. BBQ. Jacuzzi. Huge kitchen. Excellent Bedrooms. Air Conditioning, even has an outside pool table. Set on the top of a hill overlooking Aya Napa and Protaras a few miles away, the views are stunning. You would benefit hiring a car as it's approx €15 a taxi into the towns. A fantastic time was had by all at this 5* Villa
we stayed in this villa last 2 weeks for our wedding it is fantastic,ages ranged from 6 months to 58'the younger members loved the hot tub and the pool areas,it's very clean and spacious,Sue who looks after the place is fantastic only a phone call away,we will be going back again next year,views over the sea from the pool are fantastic
we have just spent 14 days at this villa and it was one of the best holiday that we have had. our ages ranged from 3months to 65 and it had something for everyone .it is very modern and spotless .it has a great view you can see agia Napa from the beautiful terrace.i am glad to say that there is nothing negative to say about this villa its perfect in every way ... i would also like to add is that the young lady who looked after us and was on call 24/7 called sue was fantastic ..
We have just returned from a family holiday at the Villa Alexander. On the whole the villa was everything it was advertised to be. If I were to make any recommendations I would advise that you hire either a quad or car (some form of transport) to enable you to get to the local shops i.e. Carrefour for provisions because it is down a remote track with no street lighting and there aren't any shops you can walk to. This makes the villa very peaceful but you do feel rather cut off otherwise. Phillip is a local taxi driver who took us to ayai napa and as there were 10 of us he sorted out two cars for us. It was between 15 and 20 euros each way per car and he was always available. Su runs the villa and couldn't have been more helpful, she bent over backwards to do anything to help and went out of her way for us. The only disappointment was that the pool table advertised on the gallery of photos was broken and had been removed and our children and boyfriends who are all in their 20's were really looking forward to that but the hot tub was fantastic and much used by all as was the pool and outside bar area. There are 6 double bedrooms but one is outside the main villa down some steps and rather cut off from everyone else and we found this room the least favourable as it was a bit hot. There is air conditioning but you have 400 units given to you and if you go over this it is an additional cost so we didn't use the air conditioning and were very careful to turn lights off. In the height of summer when you would need the a/c I think it would be difficult to keep to 400 units. We had the hot tub on all the time at a reasonable temperature and we just kept it under the 400 over 7 days in October. You do have wifi access but it is an additional cost. We had a really good week, the weather was lovely and there is something for everyone so I would recommend this villa for a large group. It was very spacious, clean and the view over ayai napa and the sea was lovely.
