Villa Palma Apartments
Ranked #1 of 2 Armutalan B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Having just returned from a 2 weeks holiday from Villa Palma I would just like to say how filthy the apartment was. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor. On arrival in the early hours of the morning, we had to wake up the young lad who was fast asleep on the hammock. When shown to our apartment the floors were absolutely filthy and full of hair. The kitchen light didn't work, the toilet roll holders were hanging off the wall, the shower tray was full of mould. During our 2 weeks stay the floors were not swept or mopped once. The maid only seemed to mop the ground floor apartments and did not venture upstairs with her mop!! Our sheets were changed once during our stay, bath towels changed once, (but only had 3 towels for the 5 of us). My daughter had a tea/coffee stain(hopefully) underneath her pillow, this was not changed and the sheet just turned round to the bottom of the bed. The 2 bedroom apartment itself was absolutely huge and had such potential if only it was cleaned and maintained.

The pool area itself was lovely and kept clean with no problem ever getting a sunbed. This was the one redeeming feature of Villa Palma. The only advice I can give is go elsewhere!!

Room Tip: Don't go above ground floor if you want your floor cleaned!!

"We are all going on a summer holiday, no more working for a week or two" ......... As we thought. We were so excited our two week holiday was about to begin. After travelling 12 hours, its midnight..... So looking forward to seeing our apartment.. When.... HORROR.....DISBELIEF.....SHOCK.....TEARS.....greeted us. The three of us couldn't speak, we didn't know what to say. I felt so gutted for our 15 year old daughter, she was so looking forward to her bedroom and holiday.
The young lad, all of 17, who greeted us was nice enough, but we felt how can you moan and complain to him. The owner left him to do everything.
The apartment, don't know where to start....... Stay away unless you like public toilets and dirty showers etc. i had to use the toilet in the dark as i didn't want to look at the room. I had to buy bleach and other cleaning products to clean apartment myself... Good first day of holiday!!
The shower was disgusting, my husband had to unblock the drain and pull out mass of hair...sick.
It did the job and shower stopped flooding the tray and floor. The tiles were rotten throughout, the cubicle doors didn't close, mould everywhere....disgusting again.
The kitchen.....not quite a kitchen, no way tailored for self catering, lack of crockery etc. yes you have a fridge, just lift door and close and pray it stays closed. Never used the tiny hotplate or dangerously looking kettle.
Front room was large, but lacked any furniture we could confidently use as all were fit for the skip.
Such a shame the cleaner didn't clean properly, the light switches were filthy....just needs a wipe with a cloth love....she knows how to make a bed, she did this everyday but little else..
Swimming pool area had health and safety issues..

Residents were great.....area great..... Shame apartment gave wrong impression of Turkey.

Just arrived home from a 2 week stay at Villa Palma Apartments.Where do i start!Firstly we had a great time because of the people we met there,the family from stoke,the family from the midlands,and the family from london,and most of all minty,many thanks for your company.Now for the apartments,we arrived late at night early morning to be greeted by a teenager who showed us to our room,the room was filthy,.There was 3 of us and only 2 beds,bed linen was at a premium had to resolve this the morning after.Maid service was a joke,towel and bed linen changed at best once a week,apartment had hairs on the floors in all rooms, shower tiles were filthy and that obviously went for the shower basin too, the shower wasnt cleaned at all in two weeks, the kitchen area was grotty as was the fridge, ants on work surface, If you want budget stay here,if you want budget but clean,go elsewhere, basic is fine its only to sleep in and shower in we have no problem with basic thats all you need in a hot country but cleanliness is the issue, by all accounts our appartment was luxurious compared to another familys, and one family barred the use of one of their toilets it was that bad and the other was loose and rocked when you used it. be careful at the bar too, try not to keep a tab, there were issues with being overcharged. Now the pool area was ok, but they seem to have a reoccuring problem with the pump on our last full day it was removed and the pool became filthy, it was rectified by next day, i guess thats bad luck really not a fault with apartments. The Armatulan area its in is lovely its quiet and away from the noise, but its not too far away if you want the town center and the bars. Our advice, look elsewhere, its a shame as it has so much potential but its filthy.

Room Tip: ground floor, as by the time the maid reaches second floor and higher, dont think she can be bothere...

Villa Parma is very very in need of a refurb , the apartments are shabby ,and our room 401 the mains sockets were hanging out of the wall show live 220 volt wiring , the room floors were never cleaned in the twelve days we stayed and towels were removed and not replaced , the pool bar was run by 2 kids who once billed me twice for same bill and I was unable to prove it , so be careful when you pay for wot your having , the menus vary with the pricing . The pool went very dirty due yo the filter been broken and the water became that cloudy I stopped my kids goin in it , overall the worst self catering apartments I've ever stayed in , so don't waste your money cuz we complained and got no where .

Nice small and quiet so very easy to relax. Not bang in the center but not far from it at all (busses stop outside also). Owners worked very hard to be friendly and inviting. Accomodation was simple but big to us, easy to keep tidy. What you see is what you get and pay for on this holiday. We went as a group of five girls and found the place perfectly standard and what we expected. Was small and quiet.
