“Villa Faulty terrible place.”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We have left this a few months before putting up a review on this Villa, we booked through Villa Plus and this was one of the worst villas we have ever been in. On our first night went to bed and found we had been invaded by ants, bed was covered, took 4 days before the owners would get a professional pest control company in. Kitchen appliances are very old, dish washer leaked and flooded the kitchen, repair man called next day and fixed the burst hose with tape and mastic, what happened 3 days later it burst again.
The villa was not clean from the shower which was mouldy, oven was not clean, and down the side of the couch was just not nice.We started calling it Villa Faulty, I could go on and on about the how bad it is. Villa plus staff were at the villa daily and tried there best to resolve the issues, we did get offered a new villa, but it was miles away any town. That was good point of this villa was its location. This villa needs gutted from top to bottom.
Villa plus have given us £150 of compensation, since we paid £2400 for the holiday we looking for a lot more. So it's off to ABTA to pursue our claim for compensation. The last review in my opinion is a fake and has been reported to Trip Adviser as such. Listed below are the bad points:

Not clean, shower was black with mould
Pool started to turn green with alga
Kitchen appliencies must be 20 yrs old
Couch was fill of all sorts of crumbs and had not been hovered
A mishmash of crockery in the kitchen
Oven was not clean and only oven tray was rusty.
Ants in the bed and wardrobe.
Chipped bath

“Two weeks break with family”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Myself, wife, daughter and her husband and two grandchildren stayed at Villa Melger. The situation was central to beach shops(over a bridge) and fuel at top of the road. We were visited by the rep the day after arrival and she was very helpful. The pool was cleaned regularly as was linen changes. However we found not enough soft seating inside for the number of people (6) .The lounge area was quite small and would be more suited to a party size of four. All in all a small villa situated within an urbanization with neighbours OK.

“Tired Villa in Great Family Location”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Just returned from two weeks in Villa Melger. The location is great, just off the Cancellada exit off the A7 on the beach side. Easy 5 minute walk to the beach, which is great and has two good beach restaurants plus lifeguards and facilities (showers, WC's etc). Just opened a new Lidl opposite for shopping (very good) and Petrol station just up the road has a mini market for all basic needs.

The Villa is a bit disappointing. Pool is great and garden is good size, though not well maintained (overgrown). Very small lounge with extremely limited satellite TV (one English channel!). Kitchen poorly equipped, though just about functional. In fairness, kitchen is good size and fridge/freezer is big. Lacks enough simple things like bowls, pans, cutlery etc

The whole place just needs a bit of care. It was dirty inside and facilities were old and worn. Needs a coat of paint and someone to trim back the garden and install some decent lighting. The bedrooms were tired and bed mattresses were soiled. Everything very minimal. The owners seem to be trying to squeeze every last Euro out of the property without investing in its upkeep.

We hired via Villa Plus, who are usually very good. This Villa did not meet the standards of previous Villa's we have hired from Villa Plus.

We had a good holiday and made the best of it. Its just you expect it more for the price paid. If its was invested in then it would be a great little Villa, in current state I could not recommend it.

“Good week at villa melger”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We travelled to villa Melger for the first of November, we were contacted by the owner and received the keys and were shown around, we had some minor issues for example one of the toilets was not working properly, this was sorted out promptly on Monday by the owner.
The orignal advert for the villa on the holiday Lettings web site said it had a jacuzzi but it did not that information has now been removed from the web site.

Having said all that we had a great week in a lovely villa and I would recommend the villa Melgar to friends and family.
