“Disappointed at the lack of communication”

*group of 15 including 3 kids from age 5 and up. Arrived on 31st of July
-We arrived promptly at 3pm as agreed, however the housekeeper, Jane was late and we had stayed outside for an hour. We tried to call the owner and housekeeper over and over again. The owner finally picked up the phone but didn't want to give the code to the villa till Jane the housekeeper arrived. We couldn't wait any longer as it was too hot for us outside. If it were just few adults waiting, we wouldn't mind but this was a family holiday and we had kids with us- he finally gave us the code after a few calls. We were a bit frustrated with the situation because we agreed on a specific time but she wasn't there. they both (David and Jane) weren't answering their phones.
- Jane was late on the first day. Jane particularly didn't seem like she was keen to sit down and talk to us about the "additional payments", she was always rushing and talking to somebody on the phone. She was more eager to take the money from us than welcoming us into Malta and the villa. She didn't bother to give us a tour around the villa and explain to us how to use the appliances. Health and safety was another factor she didn't mention to us such as the emergency plans in case of fire.
- The villa itself was no problem it is very much fitted for big groups HOWEVER there are a few areas that need improving such as the swimming pool because the stairs of the tiled pool is very sharp. We also found some loose tiles near the kitchen. The painting outside were peeling off and some lights were also broken.
-Like I said, the villa is perfect for a big group holiday. It has everything from the private pool, gym, games room that the kids enjoyed, bbq area, rooftop, near the beach and walk distance to the markets. Just be careful with booking and making sure that you know there will be additional payments and limits to the electricity. Make sure that you know the limit as we didn't get told that there even was one until the night before we checked out.

Dear guest Before our guests arrival we are always in contact with them to get information about their arrival time. Whether by phone or email. As we work during the daily morning hours we make sure that guests get the full information about how to collect keys and sending the correct exact address to the property. On arrival the properties have access of a masterkey lock near outdoor main door. It works by shuffling code to the number given, open box and there you get the key. In this way we facilitate the waiting time for anyone to open on arrival, BUT we make sure and let the guests be notified that we will be meeting them at a later time as agreed. This particular guest was not aware that we were in contact prior their arrival a few days earlier were i have sent all relevant information to make yourself welcome inside. Including the exact address via googlemaps. Key is always at the clients disposal any time of the day, whether it is an early or late arrival. Important is another point to make yourself available at a later time to check that all is ok. The property is fully informed in detail. All emergency lights,fire exits, extinguishers and emergency numbers are visible at the guests disposal. There were no additional payments unless agreed not exceeding the amount of units used for the air con system. The guest unfortunately was stressed because the amount exceeded was very high. Thus when explaining it resulted that the air con units had been running all day , all week"

We agreed to arrived 30 mins earlier so 3pm. We waited for an 1 hour outside in the heat note there was 15 of us including kids from age 5 and up. Tried to call both David (owner) and Jane (the caretaker of the Villa) to let us in. David eventually picked up the phone after I complaint about our situation. He insisted for us to wait till Jane arrived to let us in she arrived much later on. We couldn't wait any longer and he gave us the code to the villa eventually. Jane was late she didn't apologise for picking up the phone etc. She only came by to check on the electricity metre, collect deposit and additional payments. she never gave us a tour/guide on the villa. No health and safety check for example in case of fire: emergency exits. Jane looked like she was always in a hurry/ on the phone. She didn't stay for more than 5 mins to explain everything, only to get the money from us.
It was stressful first and last day because agree on the additional payments. I would recommend to them to include all the "additional payments" together with the whole cost of the villa as there lots of complications that occurred during our stay.
The villa itself was perfect for a big groups, plenty of space and perfect for families there problems here and there with the stairs of the pool being sharp and getting cuts from that. Wifi and AC were working perfectly fine. Some things were a bit worn down like the washing machine, the microwave and lights not working.
Overall, the villa was perfect the only problem was poor service towards the costumer.

“Perfect for a group stay”
Reviewed 16 December 2016 for a stay in September 2016

In September 2016, GILE Experts held a one-week education event in Villa Sunset. Marketing and innovation experts from such countries as the UK, Lithuania, Canada, Germany, and France, enjoyed the villa with modern rooms, comfortable conference space, gym, pool, roof-terrace, and spacious kitchen, where it was particularly pleasant to communicate, share knowledge and brainstorm in warm home reminding environment. Beautiful beaches, grocery shops, and restaurants are in 3-10 minutes walking distance from the villa. Marsaskala is one of the coziest Maltese cities in the South with rather dynamic nightlife, fisherman village character, which makes it attractive among tourists and corporate clients. David and Jane are particularly friendly and efficient, which makes our stay memorable and pleasant. I definitely recommend Villa Sunset for a group stay, event or family/friends' party.

We were 13 persons and each had their own bed. The property was clean and tidy and the owners were very helpful and kind.
The pool and game room perfectly filled the free time.
The beach and restaurants are just few min walking distance from the villa. And the owners can provide you taxi with lower price than other taxi companies.
Perfect, thank you!
