“Ideal for Stag Parties”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I stayed her for a long weekend for a relaxed hen party. I wasn't at all impressed with the villa from the moment we arrived.

We were give. The bedroom with 3 single beds and one of the beds had dried blood all overt he bottom of the cover on the bed and all on the wall near the mirror. I have never given a poor review on here just honest ones so hard to write this but I have to be truthful.

The beds are rock solid, only one pillow per bed no spares. The pillows has very poor filling in so do not give you neck any support.

The window in our shower was totally clear not frosted so the neighbours could look stright in while you were showering. So if you don't mind people seeing your upper half naked it may be perfect for you.
Plus it does not shut and falls out completely.
The window in the main bedroom only had one curtain so did not cover the window so the light was flowing through in the morning as no shutters outside.
We used towels to block the windows as much as we could.

The shelves are missing out of the fridges, they are very old along with the sofas. You sit on the large sofa and all you can feel is the bars from the sofa bed part. The chusioning in it is none existent.

You have to pay a 50€ deposit for the WiFi and a euro and hour for every device that uses it. For the money you pay to stay there it should be included.

The villa on the foreclosure nice but inside is a real let down. If you are looking g for comfort, style or a little luxury this is not what I would recommend. If you are looking for a place to put your head down after a heavy night on the strip and don't care where you stay this is ideal.

It is 2min walk to the strip, 5min walk to the supermarket, 10min walk to the beach.

Charlie's bar across the road is fab for breakfast and very cheap.

Lots of noise and loud music from the bars near by so some may not like that.

There is a pool table but it has seen better days. There is an old fashioned music system with a cassette function.

“Not for families with young children”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The villa is a five minute walk from "the strip" this makes it suitable for groups of adults wanting a lively holiday. There was quite a bit of noise caused by people walking past the villa through to the early hours of the morning, Some of the furniture in the villa had seen better days, with cigarette burns in the sofa and the sunbeds were faded and worn. There was a lack of certain extras that should have been added for a family holiday such as bath mats and door mats to prevent slips inside the lounge area. We did ask for these and they were provided. Also there is a steep slope into the deep end of the pool which is not so good for younger children. The travel cot was broken on arrival but this was replaced by the agent along with an additional clean of the property. The agent did try to resolve most of our complaints but it did spoil our holiday to some degree. Considering the cost of the villa I would have expected it to be of a much higher standard and the photos on the site make it look much better than it actually is. I would not recommend the villa to anyone who wants a quiet holiday or to a family with younger children

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the end of August, we were a family of 10 aged from 7 to 64, we all had a great time, the Villa was great with all we needed and the children loved the pool and plenty of room for all. The beach was about 10 minutes walk away while the strip was a 5 minute walk and we all enjoyed wandering through the shops and enjoyed a couple of evening out for meals and all reasonably priced. So I would definitely recommend both the villa and the area.

“Great villa close to all local amenities and catered for all of our needs”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented this villa for a stag do with 10 guys, it was perfect for what we needed with plenty of space, a private pool, 5 minutes walk to the local supermarket, 5 minutes walk to restaurants, shops and bars and 10 minutes walk to the beach. The Villa itself was clean and everything worked very well, we arranged trasnfers and the driver showed us around the villa and how to use the lock box, he also sorted out the wifi for us. All in all i would definitely recommend this villa to large groups or families.

“Excellent location and experience!”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We couldnt have been happier with the whole experience of our booking. The villa was set up perfectly for a group of 12 guys on a stag weekend. Close enough to the action of the strip yet hidden enough to escape it for the much needed recuperation!

The whole process of booking was made extremely easy by Patrick who sorted everything including transfers.

The accommodation is clean and functional with the pool, BBQ and pool table being the icing on the cake! Perfect to laze around the pool and enjoy the sun with friends yet close enough to both the strip (5 mins slow walk) and the old town (5 euro taxi).

There is a Supermarket close by to stock up on the vitals and plenty of smaller bars and restaurants close at hand if you want to avoid the strip.

I really cant thank Patrick enough for making the whole processes as painless as possible... just what a best man needs!
